Dogs

Bindi absolutely stole my heart. This poor girl was literally peeled off of the street downtown. She had completely given up. I saw her cute little face and just had to try to help her. I loved this dog so much. The fact that she completely trusted me after all she had been through was absolutely heartwarming and it was an honor to love and care for her.

Unfortunately, she had been horribly abused by a man, and she could not get past this no matter how much we worked with a behaviorist. She kept attacking my sweet, patient husband who put up with this for over six months. He even worked with the trainer with her, I jokingly called it their couples counseling. I could not make him live like this in his own home anymore, it just wasn’t fair. It was absolutely heart breaking for me to have to re-home her, but I am so thankful that the dog behaviorist at our vet took her in. I miss her everyday. I cried for months when she left.This girl will always have a special place in my heart.

    Yes! Named after the Nashville character!!!! Rayna was actually rescued from Istanbul, Turkey and we adopted her through Adopt a Golden Rescue. Once considered a status symbol by the wealthy in Turkey, Golden Retrievers have become more common and less valued, and hundreds end up being released onto the streets. With few shelters available, dogs of this good-natured breed frequently starve or become prey to the thousands of feral dog packs in the forests around the city. Life is hard for these mostly young dogs. Few live to be senior Goldens in Turkey. Rayna is the sweetest dog I've ever owned. She loves attention and is so easy going. She is a very happy girl and loves living on the farm.
