I keep pinching myself to see if I’m dreaming, as I have been so incredibly lucky to have adopted yet another golden who is “As Good as Gold!” After my sweet Buddy crossed the Rainbow Bridge, I knew I needed to quickly find my dear 14 year old golden Amber a new companion. AGaG told me about a little golden who came from Puerto Rico. When I saw the picture of Rosie (formerly known as Naty), I knew she was the one! Rosie was about two years old when she was found on the streets of Puerto Rico weighing only 18 pounds. I was told she was saved just in time! Rosie was welcomed into her forever home by her furry sister and the two instantly became best friends. Rosie is a sweet, loving, friendly petite little redhead who is incredibly smart and observant. She loves to look at airplanes and the moon when she’s not chasing squirrels or balls in the yard. I am so very grateful to As Good as Gold for finding me another winner!
