Submitted by Anne, David, Emmy and Catie through the email address, which is available to everyone who has adopted with As Good as Gold.

Since their “gotcha” day in October 2021, Gromit and Gilly have given us so much love and laughter!

Gromit’s tail never stops wagging and it’s hard for him to control his kisses.  He loves everyone and everything. He especially enjoys his toys, having dad read The Daily Bugle to him, and having his sissies home from college!

Gilly continues to come out of her shell and find her smile.  She needed to lose some weight, and did so–10 pounds, loves her walks, big yard, and Prince, the English Cream Golden across the street.

Thank you to their wonderful foster family and all the dedicated As Good as Gold volunteers.

If interested please fill out our online adoption application form; please make sure you fill in every required field/question or your submission will not go through. Please note that we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care and our bios are our current observations; we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history and as such breed and age estimates are an educated guess.
