I’m Beau. I was adopted in March 2017 right after my 13th birthday. My original family relinquished me because I had mobility issues. My new family loves me! I could barely climb one step when I was first adopted. I went on a strict diet and I’ve lost 20 pounds. I go swimming for therapy twice a week which I LOVE. Now I can even walk several miles a day. I have a four year old Golden sister and we all went to Wisconsin and Minnesota this summer where I swam every day for hours. I don’t like to come out of the water so I have to wear a life vest, even though I’m a very good swimmer.  I even went on a boat ride every day.  I love to play. I’m not too fast but I can outsmart my golden sister and sometimes snatch the tennis ball. We are going back to the lake soon. More FUN for me!! Thanks AGAG for not giving up on a Senior Golden like me!!

I’m in my FOREVER home, enjoying my Golden years!
