McGraw has found his forever home with the B. family where he will go for lots of long walks, play at the family farm and cabin, enjoy car rides, and be the center of attention. He is a very lucky dog!

Curly McGraw has been loving the warmer weather! He has been going for a ton of walks and getting in his sniffs. He is noticeably getting more fit, is able to walk longer distances and has even tried running/jogging (he thought he spotted a squirrel).

This dude is super into his stuffed critters! Latest additions to the critter crew include a pig with sprinkles on it, an alligator and even a skunk. McGraw will greet me at the door with his latest “catch”. McGraw used to be a hunting dog and my theory is he doesn’t tear up his critters because he was trained not to tear up the birds/deer he would retrieve. McGraw is a fantastic retriever and will retrieve anything and play fetch. His new favorite game is going around the kitchen island and playing keep away with one of his critters. He loves playing and being with people! Instead of a “people person”, he is a “people dog”.

McGraw is now down to 108 pounds! He is fighting fit and doing such a fantastic job! When he had his initial wellness check at the vet he was 117 pounds. The vet said he tested negative for heartworm and McGraw is totally up to date on his vaccinations. Also he does have some arthritis in his hips and his knees, but the weight loss should help with improving his mobility. On another visit to the vet he did have his teeth cleaned. McGraw was a very cool critter at the vet and incredibly well behaved. The vet said overall that McGraw is a very healthy boy and just needs to lose weight.

His new nickname is “Mellow McGraw” because when we go out to the pet store everyone says, “He is so mellow and sweet!” McGraw even ran into another Golden at the store and was very polite and friendly.

Shake a tail feather!

Happy Dog!

McGraw has been an absolute joy to foster and is a total teddy bear. I know he would be an awesome addition to the right family.

Smiling!

Meet McGraw! Also know as Curly McGraw, Quick Draw McGraw, McNugget, Honeybun, Baby dog, and Sweetheart. McGraw’s owner passed away and a Good Samaritan found him and turned him over to RAGOM. This handsome and brave pup is 10 years young and is always smiling.

Smiley McGraw!

Curly McGraw is an incredibly sweet and gentle Golden Retriever and a true Velcro dog. He follows me from room to room, and will greet me at the front door with one of his many stuffed critter toys. McGraw isn’t a “squeaker seeker” but will nuzzle his toys and carry them around. He sleeps on a queen sized bed that is now officially “his bed” and will hang out on his doggy bed while I eat meals. He loves attention and needs his snuggles!

The Force is Strong with McGraw!
All stretched out!

Right now McGraw is a big boy at 113 and is currently on the green bean diet and lots of short walks and play time. He has lost 4 pounds. Go McGraw! Turns out this dude LOVES snow and will jump around in it and try to eat it. He adores his walks and “patrolling the neighborhood and getting his sniffs in”.

Getting in the Sniffs!

McGraw has the most curly and fluffy golden fur ever! He loves to get petted and scratched behind his ears. We’ve gone to Petco and he was such a mellow and well behaved boy. This awesome dog would make a wonderful addition to the right home.

Flower dog!
