In October of 2019, I got a phone call from Becky, the RAGofAZ representative in the Prescott Valley area. RAGofAZ had found a Golden that was ready for his furever home! This sweet boy was rescued from Mexico; abandoned, starved and very injured. He had to have a portion of his front leg amputated due to an injury and severe infection. A few years later, during a routine chest x-ray, it was discovered that he still had a bullet in him!
In April of 2022, I decided to return to my home state of Pennsylvania to live. Shiloh was a great traveling companion, along with his 2 canine and 2 feline siblings. He has settled in comfortably in The Quaker State, and has made tons of new friends.
I had a prosthetic leg fit for him, and we still enjoy our shorter walks, as he’s getting up there in years. He’s even enjoyed dipping his paws into Lake Erie! I have known the joy of Goldens since 1981, 11 over the years. Sadly, sweet Shiloh is probably my last, as it’s harder for me to care for them in my senior years. It’s difficult to imagine my life without a Golden by my side.
Shiloh is a gem, in my heart and life. He has brought so much joy into so many lives. He knows he was blessed to be rescued by RAGofAZ and I was equally blessed to be chosen as his furever mom.
