From the minute we met Hanna we were instantly in love.  She was rescued from a puppy mill and came to AGaG with her puppies, so we knew she was going to need a lot of love.

Hanna was well behaved – she knew basic commands thanks to her foster mom. Hanna has been so patient with our senior Golden Matea. Hanna recognizes that her sister doesn’t have the same energy level and she is fine with that. Hanna won’t go out the door until she knows Matea is right behind her, waits for her while on walks, and even engages her in gentle wrestling.  Having Hanna has given Matea a little more pep to her step and we couldn’t be more grateful.

Now her “working” days are over and she can enjoy the leisurely life she deserves. AGaG could not have made a better match for our family!  We are so grateful that Hanna came into our lives! Thank you, thank you!
