Miller 09-046 is a 12 year old PB golden retriever.  He is only 50 pounds, so he is a little guy.  We have only had him for a little while, but wow, is he a sweetie.  He has come from a very rough few months.  His family was affected by the floods in Cedar Rapids, IA and they lost their home.  Miller was in a doggie care for the pet victims of the floods until their funding ran out.  He was then left alone in a trailer with two of his fur brothers.  His owners had to come a few times a day to let him out since he was not allowed in their FEMA trailer.  The owners saw how lonely Miller was getting and they knew it might be many more months before they would have a home, so they selflessly surrendered Miller to RAGOM.

Miller is just a delight.  He is a very young 12 year old!  He follows me from room to room, up and down stairs, and sleeps soundlessly next to the bed.    His tail is always wagging!!  He is just such a happy little guy.  He does have a thing where he likes to take the stuffing out of toys, but that is the only flaw I have found.  That is when the toy is already destroyed and right in front of his nose.  Who can blame him??  He doesn't chew anything inappropriate and he is completely housetrained.  Miller will tell you when he wants to go out by going to the door and whining.  He also loves being outside and going on walks!!  You can tell this little guy has been well cared for and loved in the past because he has just taken to living here with us very nicely. 

We went to the vet today and are still waiting on fecal and blood results, but the vet says he is very healthy for a 12 year old.  He has good, clear lungs and great looking ears.  He does have a bit of a growth on his gum that might need to be looked at down the road along with a teeth cleaning.  He also has a skin tag.  It looks a little funny, but it is harmless.  He has had that for years.

I would really like to ask you to take a good look at Miller.  He is such a wonderful guy that still has years left in him.  I know he would love more than anything is to have a cozy home to call his own for the rest of his life.  That is all this guy asks for.  He isn't pushy and doesn't ask for a lot.  He just has a lot of love to give.  Once you meet him and look in those big brown eyes, you will fall in love!

If you are interested in meeting Miller, please contact placement. He is a wonderful dog that will bring someone great joy.
