Thank God<:

This is what rescue should be about - hopefully based on his age (only a year old) and getting him away from those owners messing him up - it's all fixable.

That's really good news Best Friends is taking him. They have trainers on staff that can work with him. Somewhere like that is really the only place that can even begin to work on behavior modification, it is his best chance. Most Golden rescues can't take on this kind of problem, the people running them, and the foster families caring for the dogs, are just your average pet owner, and not equipped nor have the resources to deal with an aggression issue like this.

I sincerely hope Best Friends can help him overcome his issues.

There is a place called Best Friends Sanctuary that takes in troubled dogs and guessing this is the same place. At one point they had a TV show but not sure that's still on. They are a very large facility with vets and staff of trainers that (I believe) live on or near the property. It's a wonderful place and can only hope this is the place I'm thinking of! The Best Friends Sanctuary I'm thinking of will keep them for life if necessary.
Great work for all the people that came to the rescue for this young boy.
