I have news! My Foster Mom said that she gave the adopting public more than a year to scoop me up but no one did so I am officially home! My new mom wants you all to know that, while my acclimation period may have been a struggle, I have become the most loving, trusting dog ever. I make my mom laugh every single day. So, while you’re reading those bios of the other puppy mill dogs, consider this: my life began the day I got rescued and no one is more aware of that than me. I will be forever grateful and my mom can tell by the way I look at her that I love her more than life itself. Will I ever be normal? What’s normal? I ask you. My mom says she’s never had a dog that didn’t have personality quirks or medical issues, including the one that came from a breeder so we say normal schmormal! I know that my mom wouldn’t trade me for all the ‘normal’ dogs in the world.

"You've taken care of your babies and given them a good start in life. Now it's time for you to start your own Golden life!!!"
"In memory of Hattie Pie, who went to the Rainbow Bridge exactly one year ago, because she would want Ava to have a chance at the kind of life she had."
|A portion of Ava's medical care was paid for by a generous grant from the Golden Retriever Foundation's April Fund|
Hello everyone! This is Ava. She is 2yrs 9mo (dob 06-14-2009). She came to RAGOM from Missouri, along with 28 other dogs and eight of them are her babies.
She is a beautiful girl but has had a rough start to life and was a baby making machine. Granted her babies are beautiful. That was not a life she was meant to live!
It is now time for her to enjoy life. Every day is a new experience with her. We love having her and watching her grow in her new world of freedom.
She will not be ready for adoption until she has been spayed and has learned more social skills.
