I got my Toby from Rachel's Golden Retrievers (Linda Kotts) in Morrow, GA. Both of my last two goldens were from there.

We adopted Griffey from the local Humane Society. My son and I met him on a Saturday, took my wife and youngest son out to meet him later that day. After seeing how great he was with everyone, we put him on hold with a deposit (it was 5 minutes before they closed when we left) and picked him up on Monday. Best feeling in the world Monday morning when we walked in with his leash and collar and he started dancing/prancing with happiness. You could tell he knew he was going home!

I was adopted by Rex Feb 2001. He was picked up from animal control in my hometown; GRRoM picked him just before his time was up.
I had seen several dogs across the state, but Rex was the guy. He was approx. 1.5 yrs. old.
