Bentley came into our life by chance. We had searched and searched for a golden through various places- we found what we thought was the one but she ended up being aggressive with no warnings. The night we decided Bella wasn’t the one, we got an email from As Good As Gold asking to set up a home visit. Shortly thereafter we were given pictures of Bentley who looked small and sweet. It turned out he was huge- but still the sweetest thing. He is the most perfect dog in the world and great at cuddling. He has fit perfectly into our family and is the glue that holds everything together. Thank you AGAG for bringing Bentley into our lives
