#3766 Cairo

Hello…my name is Cairo. I’m a Golden and I’m around two years old. I recently traveled from Egypt to Canada on a large plane, thanks to Golden Rescue. Wow, what a long trip that was. When I arrived in Toronto, I was introduced to my new parents. I was so happy to see them, especially when they gave me food...

#3679 Philo

I was rescued from the streets of Cairo. When the shelter rescued me, I was in really bad condition as I had mange. I was covered in blood and I could hardly move because of the swelling in my paws. I was also very anemic and had a high fever…a temperature of 41. The shelter started to treat my condition...

#3163 Frickle

Dear sweet Frickle holds every single day with hope, smiles, and tail wags that are unprecedented. She helps us cope through this troubled pandemic. She is so loved and such a special soul, who found her way all the way from Istanbul to me in Ottawa to bring such joy to so many. My parents were locked down again over...

#3808 Bubba

When we first met this beautiful little tripod, he was only 22 lbs. He was very timid and shy. We had three vet appointments for this little guy and he had to be placed on a special, high-calorie, easily-digestible food to put on weight and stop the diarrhea. We had him on special medication for 21 days to get his...

Andy (previously Cheesecake) is just the sweetest boy. While I don’t know what the first 18 months of his life were like, I do know that the rest of his life will be full of love and adventure. Andy loves a good belly rub, to play, and going on walks (and doesn’t even complain when I put his booties on)....

We are a married couple with two boys and Merry also enjoys the company of our other dog and cat. She is quite possibly the most affectionate dog we’ve ever met. It’s quite amazing how much we...

#3565 Gus

We adopted Gus in August. The day we picked him up from the airport was one of the most special and memorable days of our lives! It was so heartwarming being surrounded by other families anxiously awaiting their Goldens’ arrival. There were over 40 Goldens who arrived that day and we were so surprised that Gus was out first! We...

#3668 Fuzz

Hi…my name is Fuzz. Golden Rescue’s shelter partner in Cairo found me. I was not getting enough food or water and I was thin and had very little fur when I came to Canada. I am very affectionate, particularly with men. In fact, when I came down the ramp at the airport, I trotted right by my new mom and...

#3840 Gloria, #3841 Anderson & #3847 Cooper

This trio is absolutely fabulous. Gloria was in heaven when she saw all the toys we had around the house. All three like playing with the toys but she likes them the best. Anderson is a chewer ~ cables, rope, rocking chair legs, towels, blankets, leashes, carpets…anything he can sink his teeth into. Cooper keeps them both in line with...
