Finding Warm Homes for Cold Noses Since 1991!

Golden Retriever Rescue of Atlanta

Meet GRRA's Golden Girls!

Any dog over the age of seven is considered a senior. Adopting a senior dog is perfect for someone older or a family who isn't home all day to care for a puppy.

Here are just 3 of our current seniors to consider...

Lexi - An eleven-year-old and a small pocket golden mix


I’m small with a lot of life to live. I’m only 36 pounds. I am a little timid at first. As I learn to trust, I’m your true human companion! I am a low energy dog but I enjoy outings like walks and car rides. Although I am hard of hearing, I’d prefer a fenced yard as I might wander off on my own while exploring. A home with minimal steps is important. I have bad hips due to my age. No need to crate me as I’m house trained.

Please consider me as I’d love to live out the remaining days in a wonderful loving home with someone who has lots of time to spend with me!

Hi, I’m Siri. I’m a very loyal and loving 38 pound, eight-year-old female mix.


My foster says I’m such a sweetie! I like all people and other dogs too. I am not sure about those purring kitties. Although I’m eight, I’m deaf. I am still working on basic commands and have been learning some sign language from my foster mom.

I do like the outdoors. I love to go on walks but still pull a bit. I was restricted from long walks during my heart worm treatment which I recently completed. I am house trained and can be left out of the crate with people. I not crazy about my crate but if needed, I agree to work on this area. I can learn to make a crate enjoyable.

I love car rides, and I get very excited when I get to go along for a ride! I’d love to play outside a home with a fenced yard.

My foster mom says I’m a loving and bright dog. My deafness does not impact my social or daily activities. I need a family that will be patient with me because of my disability. A yard and possibly another dog to play with would be awesome.

Hi, I’m Genna. I love my humans and can’t wait to find my furever home!


I’m a small eight-year-old golden mix. I’m a perky girl who’s looking for the next cuddle or pet. I’m house trained and can stay on own in the house if left alone, no crate needed.

I’m polite and listen to what I’m told to do. I come when called and will sit and wait if asked. I love my humans, and I’d prefer to have them all to myself. Currently, I’m not the best on a leash but my foster and are working to improve my skills. I’d love a fenced yard because I enjoy exploring outside. I'm up for adventures, especially car rides.

Please invite me into your home. I’m patiently waiting for love and cuddles.
