Older couple squatting in grass with two golden retrievers


April 13, 2020 – Sweet, happy, and loving Diesel was surrendered to AGB by his owner who was disabled and couldn’t give this special dog the care he deserved. His new parents drove to meet him, and they were instantly smitten. His new mom says that Diesel is doing great and that he and his doggie sister Annie are starting to play. He is learning to being gentle with the cat and she is even tolerating an occasional lick. His mom says that she’s had many dogs in her life but never one as loving as Diesel. She also says that Diesel’s dad is nuts over him. This happy story warms all of our hearts!

Original Adoption Post

When a full sized Golden Retriever is just too big and just too much, presenting me – Diesel! Hey there, I’m a cream colored nugget with a Golden face, a Golden coat and a Golden tail but somewhere in my ancestry was a short legged relative. I’m a 3 year old boy and I weigh 50 pounds. All the girls love me and I love them right back! I like everybody; cats, dogs, people. Besides being as cute as I am, I’m very smart too. House trained, of course, and I know a few commands. I have a quirk or two – I’m not fond of crates and don’t like water being sprayed. I like swimming and riding in the car. My former owner was disabled and felt they had to surrender me because they couldn’t physically or financially take care of me anymore. I am neutered, microchipped and vaccinated so I’m ready to go to my new forever home. I can’t wait! I’m always happy but that will make me even happier. The person that drove me to AGB said I turned my nose up at Milk Bones but I bet we can find some treats I will adore, don’t you think? This pint-sized Golden boy will do anything to win your heart.
