Welcome to the forum! That is just fantastic that you rescued Hunter. I imagine he will come out of his shell as he becomes more secure with you. Good job.

Still crazy after all these years.

Hi Jenny - Welcome from Northern BC Canada. Your sweet Hunter will come out of his shell when he knows that the love and attention will continue and he is safe...Thanks for giving him another chance. He will repay you with endless amounts of love.

Hello and welcome from the Texas coast. The dog in my avatar was my Hunter. I lost him a little over 54 years ago to adverse reaction to the 6 momnth injectiable heart worm pr4eventative, ProHeart6 (which the FDA had them pull 10 months after his death) but he lives in my heart forever. She was an extra special boy.

Meanwhile, i hve his littermate sister KayCee, now 8 1/2 and spoiled rotton. and we also have an adopted golden mix, Honey, who was one hour from being gassed at the county pound. You could not find a more loving dog than honey,a s tho she knows we saved her. And more or less did it twice as she had heartworms when we adopted her and had to put her thru the treament. She was right at a year old when we adopted her Dec. 7, 2002, so made that her first official birthday--making her 6 this pat Dec. This adopted/rescued dogs are very specail.

Thanks everybody for the warm welcome! I am very excited to have found you all. I'm sure I will have plenty of questions.

Jenna, we are about an hour from Tampa. We recently moved here from D.C. and I love the warm Florida winters. This morning it may have been cold, but tomorrow's high is 80. You really can't beat that!

Welcome, Jenny and Hunter...glad you found us. I (as does everyone else here) applaud you for rescuing Hunter, he sounds like a wonderful Golden Boy.

He already knows he's safe with you and with continued love, attention, affection and patience he will come around in no time.

We look forward to seeing pictures of your new boy.

~Jackie

For Jake, A Golden who didn't know he was a dog. We will miss you forever.
