Janie Success Story

Hi! I’m Janie, getting serious cuddles from my girl, and trying to ignore our pesky cat. I’m what’s called a “foster failure”, because when I came to my AGAG foster home, I loved them so much I decided to keep them as my family. I was about 3 or 4 when I came to my forever home, which I shared with Zena (another rescue Golden!) until she went to the Rainbow Bridge last summer. Dad says I’m a goofball, but I prefer the word “spirited”. Mom takes me swimming in the summer and I go running with her a couple times each week. Sometimes I stand guard at the living room window, because you never know when the squirrels might attack. I’m so glad this was the family I chose!
