Rita's Bear adopted!

Congratulations to Rita's Bear, who found his forever home with the Page family.

Bear arrived about a month ago from Taiwan. When he was found by Rita and MJ, they discovered he was positive for heartworm, so he had to be treated before he could come to the U.S. They also discovered that he had hip dysplasia. But you could see in the pictures Rita sent us that he never stopped smiling - he's a sunny, happy boy who loves to play. He went to stay with Heather and her mom, who adopted Samby not long ago. The boys immediately got along and Bear played non-stop with Sammy; Heather said he acted more like a 2 year old than his stated age of 5. The Page family has had Goldens in the past and were anxious to add a new furball into their home. They were so excited to meet Bear and were able to rearrange schedules to make sure everyone was at the meeting. Of course Bear charmed them and he happily went with them to start his new life. He's getting used to his new home, tried to walk across the lily pads on the pond, and is learning not to chase the cat. He gets to go to work with Mr Page and is enjoying his furever family.

Bear thanks Rita and MJ for finding him, getting him well and sending him to us and the Welcome Waggin' for greeting him when he arrived. He thanks Heather and Victoria (and Sammy) for fostering him. He's grateful to Laura M. for making sure his new home is perfect for him, and he's really thankful to the placement team and PA Jo Anne for matching him up with his new people.

Welcome home Bear!
