OP if you are still out there and looking SoCal has lots of really great rescues. I've worked and fostered with rescues for decades. Your dog needs a home, that's what rescues do. They will go out to the potential adopters home and visit, they will interview their vet, they will observe the behavior of their current dog (if they have one) and size up if this is a good family for your dog. They will also go BACK after the adoption and see how things are going. Are you willing to do all this for a perspective family?
Until your pup is placed it will be living with someone that has other goldens. An experienced foster that can help your pup be comfortable and access his level of training and provide training classes if needed. Golden rescues are wonderful and very involved in helping your pup.
Please reconsider this avenue, they will keep in touch with you if you ask. This will allow you to review the information from the potential adopters. Rescues are a wonderful resource.
