We recently welcomed a new addition to the family. Amy's dog Hunter died in January and she recently decided she was ready for a new dog. She really wanted a puppy, but the breeder she bought Hunter from knew of this 1 1/2 year old female golden that was available. She came from a line of very good dogs, but her eyes did not pass an eye clearance test (its something that will not affect her at all), so they were not going to breed her and she had just been neglected in a kennel. We went to see her and Amy decided that she would like her so we brought her home. Amy named her Shiloh and she is a very sweet dog. Even though she was basically left in a kennel she is adapting very well and learning quickly.
