"Single Mom and Seven Year Old Daughter Seek Distinguished Older Gentleman...
For peaceful early morning walks, afternoons at the beach, playing catch in the backyard, tobogganing in the snow and enjoying sunsets on the back deck. Must be independent as we all have our day jobs and always anxious to greet us with kisses when we get home. After enjoying a nice dinner, we love to watch TV together. A snuggle at bedtime or when one of us is sick is always appreciated."
This could have been the ad we would have placed but instead we applied to Sunshine Golden Retriever for a “senior” dog. Our baby has never seemed a senior and always has been good mannered and natured. We are so lucky to have been offered Ike as our Southern Gentleman. Being a full time working Mom I knew it would be unfair to try to raise a puppy. We told them we were willing to accept a senior and he has so far passed our dreams for a wonderful companion, playmate and protector. If you have ever wanted a dog but were concerned about the puppy stage we highly recommend adopting a senior from Sunshine Golden Retriever. We told them he had to be good with kids and cats. Not only was he great with them but he has never been a chewer or biter or barker. We do not know how old he was when we adopted him, we were given a range from 5 to 9 years old, 6 years later he acts basically the same so we are very lucky. Thank you to everyone at Sunshine for giving us such a great distinguished southern gentleman to share our home and lives with. He is my now 13 year old daughters best friend and she tells him every day. You can’t get better than that!
