A golden glow...

"Wrangler came to me through Rescue A Golden of Arizona. Wrangler's owner had recently gotten married and his wife did not like dogs. The new wife was going to have Wrangler euthanized that day and the husband called Rescue begging us to take him. Wrangler came to me as a foster dog and I had no intention of adopting him. Within an hour he had stolen my heart and became my Best Friend. He is so smart and so willing to please. With just a few agility lessons under our belt, Wrangler received his AKC Agility Title. He is the best dog in the world."

That wife should be banished from humanity, and the husband needs to grow a spine. Anyone who "doesn't like dogs" and threatens to euthanize one clearly has a screw loose.

I agree with Laura 100%-Where is this guy's backbone???? Thank God for you Joyce-things really do happen for a reason!!

Thank God for you. There is a place in heaven for you and if you don't want Wrangler, I'll take him.

OH, MY LORD, PLEASE PRAY FOR THAT WIFE---SHE'S GOING TO HELL. THAT STUPID HUSBAND. IT I WERE HIM, I WOULD HAVE TAKEN WRANGLER AND FLED THAT SCENE. WHAT A LOVELY RESCUE STORY FOR A LOVELY DOG. I SAVED ONE OF MY DOGS FROM A SHELTER. 'MIA" JUST "KNOWS" SHE IS LUCKY AND SHE SURE SHOWS IT WITH TONS OF KISSES!!!! ANIMAL LOVERS ARE SPECIAL PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That husband and wife deserve each other, May they make each others lives hell.

Ditch the wife, keep the dog!!! I'm happy that Wrangler found the home he should have had all along. Thanks, Joyce... you're a winner, and so is Wrangler.

Don't know how old Wrangler is but with a lot of love, he will be around for a long time. My golden, Rudy, will be 17 on Valentine's Day.

Dear Wrangler:
That guy picked a wife over you? He's blind, deaf, dumb, and unfeeling. I'm glad you have a wonderful new home. Nancy

God bless you Joyce & yes these Goldens have a way of stealing hearts. He looks a lot like my Olden Golden except not quit as white faced as mine.

To Caroline! Any hints on getting a Golden to the age of 17, greatly appriciated! I work for a Vet, we only have 2 16yr olds & no 17s. You must be a very good Dog Mom with a lot of luck!

Nancy - been feeding Rudy alfalfa tablets for about 4 years. This helps the inflamation in his hips. Also started him on Cetyl M about 5 months - this has helped also and he still runs through the snow like a pup.

Sorry - last comment is for Terri. Just a case of CRS again.

I sure hope she was a better wife and mother
than she appears to be.

What a Beautiful Dog. You can see the love in his eyes. I'm so glad he got a good home. As for the man who gave him up for his wife, I believe he made a bad choice.

Sometimes you get a message. That guy got one and he married her anyway. ??!!! I give them a year. Wrangler now has a loving home so things worked out fo rhim.

I live in San Antonio, currently directing a production of "ANnie." I would like to bring attention to the plight of animals needing homes and was thinking of getting a dog from a local shelter to use, with the hopes of someone adopting him/her after the show.

I cried just reading about what this womans intentions were and how this man stood spineless. Thank goodness Wrangler has a new and loving home. A pet is a companion. How beautiful to come home from work to find them overjoyed and greeting us on our return. There is no other relationship like the bond between a person and their pet. A human being and his pet are two creatures of love and our homes the place where this bond is so celebrated. St. Francis of Assisi called animals his "brothers and sisters" to most of us they are our children who love us unconditionally. They seek no more than to be loved and cared for yet give back a thousand fold.
The man now has a wife and I hope that she can find love in her heart someday if she chooses to have children, but Wrangler is the biggest winner as well as his new owner. I send good wishes and much love.
I have a 7 year old French Brittany who never leaves my side and comes to work with me everyday. We are bound by so much love, he IS my child. As I grow older I hope that he will continue fill my lap, my heart and my home with great love.
Many seniors have a lap filled with the love of a fellow creature. I hope this woman can find that most unconditional of all loves in her life.

Wrangler emitts love through his eyes and the smile on his face. This woman who was determined to get this dog out of her life is very insecure and most likely a
narcisist who in incapable of love. I feel very sorry for her husband who was taken in by her. He is a fool and he will pay for it most likely living a life of misery with such a woman.

Wrangler's fate was determined by God and he has found the home he was supposed to have in the first place. My Dalmatian, Daisy Mae, is my heart and soul. I have loved animals since I could comprehend what they were and I know that God gave them to us to bring us joy and to teach us about unconditional love. I have been through hell and back the past four years and I could not have made it without the joyful spirit and support and constant love from my dear Daisy. I would walk across burning coals for her. She is my "fur person" and my best friend. I thank God for her every day.

THERE IS A PUPPY, KITTY, DOG OR CAT
WAITING IN SHELTERS IN EVERY TOWN, SMALL OR LARGE. SO GO OUT AND ADOPT A PET, YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY. AND IT SHOULD BE AGAINST THE LAW TO PUT A HEALTHY DOG DOWN THAT HAS BEEN A FAMILY PET FOR THE REASON THIS SELFISH COUPLE HAD. SHAME ON THEM, BUT WRANGLER IS THE WINNER, CANNOT SAY THE SAME FOR HIS SPINELESS FORMER OWNER AND I WON'T WASTE SPACE TALKING ABOUT HIS NEW SPOUSE. GOOD FOR YOU WRANGLER. FROM A LONGTIME GOLDEN LOVER AND COMPANION OF 'MUTLEY' WHO WAS A DEAR FOR 15 YEARS AND WAS FOUND ON THE STREETS, STARVING. SWEETEST DOG I EVER HAD, AND I HAVE HAD ABOUT 40 OVER THE YEARS.

i would give anything to have my "Gus " back... he was only 10 and taken suddenly last April... my heart is still broken... as is all of my family... i envy the people who have their best friends for years... especially the woman who had hers 17 years ! how wonderful! Gus had a tumor that burst suddenly ... we had no warning and no idea that it could happen! we would pay anything to get him back.... not sure my heart can take any more breaking so for now we are "friendless"! enjoy your dogs.. most are better than the human friends! that man didnt deserve a dog! thank goodness he was adopted !!!!

Wrangler has the kindest face. He reminds me of my Grandpa - I call Goldens and Irish Setters Grandpa Dogs - they just have that look about them. How could anybody not smile when they see that beautiful, loving fur baby?

Grandmommie says,
What an evil person, she must have known that Wrangler would have been on to her since animals can tell if you are a good or bad person. We all know he is much better off away from thoses people.
Mommie says,
Wrangler reminds me of my little Nana-boo and her brother Jacks past. We got her from a shelter and learned she had a twin, we were too late to help Jack but Jill (now Nana) has all of us at her beck and call. We would all be lost without our Nana-Boo. We didn't adopt her she adopted us and I'm glad she did because she has come to mean everything to me. Her and Wrangler have had idiotic owners who wouldn't know love even if cupid shot them in the butt. God was looking out for Wrangler just like he did for my Nana. I will never understand what that man was thinking but I'm glad people like us exist to help out defenseless furry peoples because they have voices too.........ya just gotta listen!

God Bless you Joyce
You are a special person. Wrangler looks like a joy to have.
That guy should have better values than "pick a winner" like his new wife! over Wrangler who would never do anything but give him unconditional LOVE!

Thank you for adopting a dog in need.
We need more people like you to help save animals. The new wife knew about the dog when she met the guy. They should have come as a package. Would someone give up their children so easy. Thanks for caring.

I just could not beleive anyone would euthenize a dog for no reason and especially because a new member of the family did not want him!! It breaks my heart that there are actually people out ther like that!! There should be a law against any such thing. And furthermore, I cannot believe the man would have let her win like that. Unbelievable, totatally unbelievable!! I cannot even express how livid I was to read this and there are such people out there. My heart goes out to you and Wrangler and God definitely works through people and animals to help each other. You are a very blessed person and Wrangler is a very blessed dog. I have a golden, 2 yrs old, and I would never, ever let anyone take him away from me.
