BIO:
Update: AGA has decided that it's best for me to stay with them and look for a home where I can spend the rest of my days. I have something called arthritis in my spine and hips and it makes it hard for me to do stuff younger dogs can do. I also have something called heartworms, so I need a home that doesn't have many steps so my heart doesn't beat too fast. I had melanoma on my lip too, but the doctors removed my tumor and they don't think it spread. Whew, thank goodness for that. AGA will pay for the medication to relieve some of my pain if you can give me a warm place to sleep. I don't have many teeth, so I need to be on soft food because the hard stuff hurts my mouth. Cats don't really bother me and I like dogs too, but most of all I like being with my human; it sure got lonely when I was all on my own. Now, here's the twist - I'm not really a Golden Retriever - they think I might be some sort of spaniel mixed with maybe some hound, but AGA took me in anyway and promised to help me. Even though they are a Golden Retriever rescue, once they take a dog in, they will never turn their back on you! I'm so grateful for everything they have done for me and they have promised to make my last days the best ever. If you think your home would be a good fit for me, can you please ask about me? I'm so tired of being by myself. Love always, Barney

I can smile really big! See! AGA got me from a shelter and I sure needed the help. I have a dog cold and I need medicine for that. I also need a couple of tests and time to make sure I didn't get any shelter bugs. The worst news is that I have heartworms and that means I need help from someone out there. It costs $500 for the medicine and AGA tells me that some kind person will help me out and send the money. Then they turn into helper angels and have a very special place in AGA. Oh, wait! I just got a news flash! My sponsor is here! I just heard my own angel sent me the money I needed. My goodness - they sure do work fast around here! Thank you Cynthia Saracino - you have made my day!! One fun thing about me is that I am a big fan of car rides and letting my head stick out the window even though it's kind of cold for that!!!! It's more fun than anything - that feeling like flying with your ears in the wind - kinda like Cynthia's wings I think! I'm a friendly guy and I like the company of people - especially the kind who give me lots of attention. We'll let you know any thing new but you could call and ask about me. I'm 10 and kind of medium size and I would make the BEST new family member. Thanks for thinking about me - your pal-to-be - I hope!!! Barney
