The Latest From EGRR Aug 05

CPR Seminar Photo (2) CPR/First Aid Seminar

Do you know what to do for your dog in an emergency? Do you know what constitutes an emergency? In the case of most emergencies, the ideal thing to do is to put your dog into the car and rush to the nearest emergency vet, and yes, you really should know where that vet is located! But if your dog is choking on something, or has stopped breathing, by the time you get to the vet, it may be too late. Do you know how to dislodge a stuck object from your dog’s throat., or how to do CPR? Most of us don’t but the folks at Palm Beach County Fire Rescue do! They will be doing a seminar for us and our sister organization, EGRC, on October 18th at Palm Beach County ACC.

It’s Calendar Time Again!

Calendar 2
Hi! I’m Mollie, the 2014 Calendar cover Golden and I’m waiting to see who’s turn it is to become the 2015 Calendar cover Golden!

Since our previous calendars were such a huge success, we are in the process of creating our sixth annual EGRR Calendar. Send us your best Golden pictures for consideration. We are looking for everything that shows off our beautiful babies – the cute, the sweet, the silly, the simply beautiful. (No people in the pictures, and no professional pictures, please.)

The Golden must be an EGRR adopted orphan or owned by either an EGRR or EGRC member. Please include your Golden’s name, and for EGRR adoptees, include the tag #, if known, and the month and year of the adoption. For all other submissions, membership rosters will be checked.

Please send your submissions to before the September 15th deadline. Like last year, files submitted must be large enough to print a high quality 8 X 10 picture, typically 1 mb.

Buddy and Bella Jul 29

Bella1 (2)Buddy (2)
Genders: Male and Female
Age: 11 months
Status: Need Foster Home

Meet our 2 newest “kids”, Buddy and Bella! They are 11 month old littermates that came from the Shelter in Broward. We’re not sure why they were surrendered because they are both in excellent health, are sweet as sugar, and are EGRR’s “awesome twosome”!

As you can probably tell from their pictures, they are Golden/Lab mixes. Buddy weighs about 50 lbs and Bella is much smaller, at about 40 lbs. They are definitely bonded, but they also love attention from humans (almost as much as they love each other!).

Bella is shy and a little fearful in new situations. However, she quickly warms up to people. Buddy is more outgoing and wants nothing more than to be petted. He seems a bit more relaxed than Bella. He sat calmly to pose for his pictures, while Bella had to be bribed with lots of treats.

We’d prefer to keep them together, but since they are so young, placing them apart is not out of the question because, at their tender age, new bonds will form quickly. They are spayed and neutered, micro-chipped and have had all their shots. Since they are shelter dogs, EGRR will not place them in a home with children under the age of 9. We will require anyone adopting the “awesome twosome” to take them for obedience training, as we do for all our dogs under the age of 2.

If you’d like to meet a pair of adorable, fun-loving young dogs, and have room in your home and your heart, please contact us at: or call our hotline at: 954-748-3507
