It’s tempting to be philosophical about my name. Was I terribly unlucky to have been abandoned with my son, Buddy, and not found until we were malnourished? Or was I lucky to have been found in time? I opt for lucky because we’re here now, where friends will help each of us find a comfy home with caring, loving people. I’ve been shy with strangers, but a gentle, quiet manner wins me over, (treats help, too), and once we’re okay with each other, I love your soft touch under my chin or petting my head. Easy, slow walks together are wonderful, too. I’m an 11-year-old Golden Retriever/Shepherd mix female with a gorgeous face and golden brown coat, 58 pounds, who comes with FREE Vet Care for Life and a heart yearning to be yours.
