What Gender? What Color?
Think you want a female dog?
Many of our fosters prefer fostering males because they're easier to integrate into our multi-dog homes. If you're thinking you only want to consider a female dog, please read this!
Help fight Black Dog Syndrome!
Many Golden lovers are not likely aware of how doomed black dogs are when they are brought into the average animal shelter. Even "Black Goldens,” as we call our wonderful mixes—of Golden Retriever, Labrador Retriever, Flatcoat Retriever, or Newfoundland—often suffer such a fate. GRFR is part of the solution. More than 40 of GRFR’s 2010 alums are Black Goldens! Read more.
Read a success story from one of our happy adopters of a "black golden" - Paul A. and his amazing Flat Coat Retriever, Lacy.
