Sweet Charlie was an affectionate, funny, intense 4-year-old hunk. His young life was cut way too short by Lymphoma. Charlie had been struggling medically for the last month, and his family surrendered him to RAGOM when they could no longer afford the care. Shortly after he came into RAGOM he was diagnosed with Lymphoma, and from there he had a very rapid decline.

Charlie had his quirks, but he was perfect in so many ways. He loved his humans and couldn’t get enough love and affection. Other dogs, not so much! I saw him as a dog with so much potential—he would have made the right family an incredible companion. He had so many of the Golden Retriever qualities we all love: He had the Golden nudge down to an art form, he was my faithful shadow following me everywhere, and he had the sweetest eyes that were a window into his sensitive soul. He wanted nothing more than to be close to his people, and he had so very much love to give.

Your life was cut way too short buddy. Run free—you’ll forever be in all our hearts.
