I sent my dad the link. He wants a new young adult dog, and fell in love with my golden. They live in KC. But he's having a hard time convincing my mom that a new dog is a good idea. I'm crossing my fingers that he calls!

ETA:
OHHhhh....he e-mailed me back wanting more info!
I pointed him to the phone number to call. It's only an hour from their home.
He really does need a dog.
I SOOOO hope he calls!!!

My dad called the St. Joe shelter. This poor little guy is an outdoor dog and has never been inside a house. Not housetrained at all.

I am still trying to talk my dad into it, but they (my parents) are older and don't think they are up for the challenge of training an older dog from scratch. I will keep trying. Their last dog wasn't housetrained either when they got her, and she only ever had one accident inside. But I think this would be a hard sell for my dad to talk my mom into it.

Golden's are so smart, he will figure it out. She needs to see his little face and those eyes.

I just spent 20 minutes on Dirk's Fund website.
Sent my dad to the site to see Colin, a golden collie mix, and a couple of the others.

Missouri

He's looking at this shelter in St. Joseph, Missouri?
I didn't see Colin.
Saw Bear, a reddish colored Golden Ret., who is 5 and Hunter, and just a girl yposted that is probably a Golden Mix.
