I am so excited to introduce you to one of RAGOM’s newest family members. All the way from the beach of theAegean Sea, say hello to Vincent! Vincent is a stunning Golden Retriever. A Turkish volunteer got a call about a dying dog on a beach of the Aegean Sea. When the volunteer got there, he was in such bad shape that she could not tell what type of dog he was, but knew he needed help immediately if he was to survive. Help came in time, and while Vincent is still quite thin, he was healthy enough to make the 5,000+ mile trip to Minneapolis. Vinnie weighed in at about 52 pounds and has been given a clean bill of health from Dr. Rachel at Minnehaha Animal Hospital. When Vinnie was rescued from the beach, he weighed a mere 27 pounds so he’s since doubled his weight and has a gorgeous cream coat. We will continue to give him some extra food as he could still stand to gain another 5 –10 pounds.
Vinnie has been with us now for a few days and doing very well with EVERYTHING! He has only had 2 accidents which is no big deal considering what he has been through in his very short life. Here are some of the things we’ve learned about sweet Vinnie:
