At A Glance
It was mid-June when RAGOM received a call on the Hotline from Joan. She was hoping to find a good home for Red, a handsome Golden Retriever who had wandered onto the family farm last fall.
Joan had put food out in the apple orchard because Red was too afraid to come close to the house. She fed him through the entire winter, and by spring he was coming closer. Approximately six weeks before Joan called RAGOM, Red finally gathered up enough courage to enter the house. He even allowed Joan to bathe him and loved being brushed. He was great with her two dogs - very, very sweet but also very timid. If anyone came to visit, Red would hide until they were gone. He acted like a puppy mill dog.
Red was now living in the house day and night. Joan had grown to love Red, but just didn't have time for three dogs and she felt he needed a family of his own. She knew he would one day make someone a fantastic companion. Joan has called all the vets and shelters in the area and distributed flyers, and after 8 months, still no one has reported him missing.
