Season’s Greetings to all of you at As Good as Gold from one very happy adopter! I was fortunate enough last month to be gifted with two beautiful 12-year-old bonded brothers, Caesar and Duke. My early Christmas presents!  We are quickly becoming fast friends and are tickled to have each other!   My 15 year old cat is glad they are with us, and my neighbor who gives the boys a lunch time break loves them, too! I don’t know if they feel as blessed as I do, but they are the very best early Christmas present I have ever received.  They are adorable and attentive and love being loved as much as I do.  I have been very lonely since the loss of my goldens and now feel like my home is complete again  Thank you for taking in and caring for these lovely babies and finding them for me.  All of us appreciate it!!

Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history and as such breed and age estimates are an educated guess.
