BIO: Thinking of hot chocolate on a cold Winter night? What is better than a piece of chocolate cake? What is better than a chocolate candy bar at the movies? Well, maybe a box of Milk Duds? Or for that matter- maybe just one extra big Milk Dud. That’s me alright! I am a 2 year old, English Chocolate Lab (not for eating though) who was lost and running down a dangerous road until they got me and took me to the shelter. I’m a friendly boy by nature with a tail that can’t stop wagging. I rode in a car the other day to come to AGA and it was totally new but not so bad once you get used to it.I don’t remember going for car rides before. Gotta tell you though, I wasn’t too happy at the shelter or at the dog doctor- guess I’ve never been to places like those before- I had a wound on my head like a dog beat me up and I had to get two teeth pulled (ouch!). Then they told me I have heartworms. I was pretty discouraged after hearing I needed $500 to pay for the medicine. Then I found out that I didn’t actually have to get that money, I just had to ask if some one who reads this would send it to AGA. Guess what? I am a good asker — two former AGA orphans asked their mom and dad to help me and they said: MERRY CHRISTMAS, MILK DUD. GET WELL SOON. Thanks Annie and Gifford. I’m a good boy and I want to be well again and find a new home. Wouldn’t it be nice to have something chocolate around all of the time? I can keep you warm, make you smile and entertain you. All in one dog! Your pal, Milk Dud.
Sonny and Shadow were owned by a young man in South Carolina who sadly passed away. The family did not want the dogs and said they would have them put down the next morning if someone did not take them. No one stepped up and even though we are a Golden Retriever Rescue, we couldn’t stand the thought of them being put down. We thought we would vet them and then find a lab rescue to take them. All the local rescues who take labs refused, so we are trying to find them a real home…. for FREE. SONNY is a 9 year old, male yellow lab weighing in at 100 pounds. He is healthy but has an old cruciate injury and is a bit stiff. SHADOW is an 11 year old female black lab mix. She is Sonny’s shadow! She weighs 70 pounds and is heartworm positive and we are doing the slow kill on her due to her age. Both have had dentals, vaccines and some lumps removed. AGA will be medically responsible for them except their monthy heartworm and flea preventative. Continued vaccines and any major medical issue which can be treated and a good quality of life can be maintained, AGA will pay for if an AGA vet is used. This is a very bonded pair and must go together.
They have been with AGA awhile now and they are hoping for a home all of their own! Sunny loves to snuggle. Both are big ole love bugs! Something else they like is food! Sunny can still “dance” for his dinner. Life shouldn’t be complicated- plenty to eat and plenty of love. What could be more important? Shadow likes adventures. It’s her job to run off all the squirrels and chipmunks. That’s how she gets her exercise. Sonny is not big on exercise. He’s more of a watcher. Now when it comes to cats they both like to chase them. Even Sunny thinks that’s exciting. They are trying to be patient but every night when everyone is asleep they whisper and dream about getting a new “home”. Please, please help them find it. We know you must need a snuggler and a squirrel chaser. Everyone does and they are the best! Please open up your heart and your home for Sonny and Shadow. .
