Two years ago, we adopted Mulligan from RAGOM.
Mully has adjusted better than we ever could have imagined! He was a very shy and underweight boy when he came to live with us, and we figured he would always be rather skittish. Although he will never be quite the exuberant soul that his dog sister is, he loves us dearly and is one of the most patient dogs that we've known. He will now even wag at and sniff out men he has never met, which we never thought possible. He greets everyone with polite sniffing and wagging, and will be your friend for life if you talk to him and give him nice petting.
Here are a few pictures of him cavorting with his dog sister, Lola. (Mully is on the left in the photos.)
When Mully first came to live with us, he had a very stunted tail. I even remember his foster family telling us that a family came to look at him and decided against adopting him because of his little stubby tail. Ironically, he now has one of the bushiest, longest, and most luxurious Golden tails I've seen. A little love and good kibble goes a long way!
