DOG IN NEED OF NEW HOME- We are a growing family, with a third baby on the way. We have made the decision that it might be best to find a new home for our dog, as we are finding it harder to give him the care he needs with our kids ages and both of us working. He is a 5-year-old golden retriever. He has been up to date on all his vaccinations and in good health. Very friendly, and good with people/kids. He is medium-active, likes his walks, but also calm once he gets some outside time. We are only posting on here because we want it to be a good fit, and find a home where we know he’ll be taken care of well. We’d love to talk more details if this sparks interest. Call or text 604-866-8501 (01/17)
