Hoping this sweetie joins the family

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hey, guys, just wanted to request some vibes prayers that this sweet boy joins our family and becomes my "nephew."



He's apparently been running loose in a local neighborhood for the past few weeks and no one has claimed him or seems to know where he came from. A person I know was finally able to catch him. He's young, already neutered, and seems to be in pretty decent shape except for some nasty abrasions around his neck and tail. He's now in the care of a rescue group who suspects he might have been chained outside and gotten the chain imbedded in his neck.

Here's the best news, though. I contacted my brother and SIL who have been thinking about adopted a young, male golden retriever and they brought the kids to meet this sweet boy today. It was love at first sight! So, they've put in an application to adopt him and if all goes well at the vet, and he's not microchipped, Carlos (as my niece has already named him) will be coming home tomorrow! If he is microchipped the rescue will contact the owner and investigate whether this was a case of neglect and will go from there.

My brother, SIL and the kids have already fallen in love with Carlos, so please send vibes that he's able to join our family. Thanks!

he's such a beautiful looking dog! I hope he becomes your new family member, and I'm so glad someone took him off the streets, poor boy.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed in hopes that Carlos becomes a part of you family. He looks so sweet. I have a real soft spot for goldens. ( Winnie is a golden.)

Nope. She came up with the name on her own. It'll probably be while before I look at the dog without thinking of that restaurant in Scottsdale.

He's a dollbaby. My family's in love with him already, so we're really hoping this works out. I'll bet Winnie is a reall sweetie.

Thanks for the vibes, guys. I'll let you know when we get the news.

Being a male Golden Retriever owner myself (Melvin, almost 7 years old), this thread holds kind of special place for me. My old boy is going gray in the face, but did he EVER look like Carlos in his younger days!!!

Golden Retrievers are fabulous family dogs. I hope your family can adopt him...he'll be a wonderful companion.

Oh I'll cross my fingers, toes, eyes, legs, etc for them to adopt him! He's a doll!

I am sending hugs and prayers from Mississippi that Carlos will be joining your family soon.



Please keep us updated on him too.

Well, guys, it's official. Carlos is joining the family! Turns out he wasn't neutered afterall, or microchipped, so that was taken care of this morning, as was all his medical. My brother, SIL and the kids are picking him up tonight. I'm so happy and excited for them and thrilled that this sweet boy is off the streets and will have a loving home. It's a happy ending all around. Welcome to the family, Carlos!

Thanks so much for the vibes, guys. Will get pics as soon as I can!
