When I wish upon a star...
Hi, my name is Chris and I’m a one-year-old sweet, happy, energetic, and handsome (at least that’s what they say and who am I to argue?) male Golden Retriever. My life had kind of a rocky start because I was born with a serious congenital heart defect that surgery is unable to repair. Since I am not a candidate for surgery, the Vet Specialist says I will probably have a shorter than normal Golden life. But because of the right medication and the many angels in my life (thank you RAGofAZ volunteers) things are looking up for me. As an example, right now I’m with an angel who is teaching me puppy manners and how to be a respectful Golden boy. He reports that I’m doing great and says I’m a quick learner. He says that I need exercise to get out the puppy wiggles, but only a little walk two or three times a day because if I get too excited I swoon or faint (I know, I’m a little dramatic), but I do love to walk and be with my people. I’m looking for that perfect family whether it be a permanent foster or adoptive family that has the patience and time to deal with a puppy who has special medical needs, and who will give me my chance at a Golden life. I promise that I will bring you all the joy and love that you could ever imagine. Tonight when I wish upon a star I’m going to be thinking of you. . .and hoping that you’ll be my forever family.
