Intake Report 11/15/2016:
This is Robby’s lucky day because he became a MAGRR kid. He found himself in a rural Mississippi shelter where he had come in as a stray. In that area, it wasn’t unusual for no one to come and get him, but the shelter staff fell in love with him and wanted to see him get a great home. Because there are so many dogs, Robby was overlooked and consequently he became more likely for euthanasia. The staff so wanted him to get out because he is just a happy go lucky guy who loves everyone. He loves playing with other dogs and even though his DNA isn’t 100% golden, his temperament and personality surely are. They called MAGRR and we just couldn’t let his sweet guy get put down. He looks like he might have crossed paths with a Duck Toller. Has those beautiful light eyes and a pretty golden coat. He has white feet which truly make him adorable and any older folks out there – we might should have called him Robby Socks. He will make a great addition to anyone’s family.
