Hey folks, this is our story about our first family dog that worked out for us, that we adopted. Her name was Brandy, she was a young Golden Retriever, about 2-3 years old.
We adopted Brandy after trying a couple of other times to adopt a dog. They didn’t work out for us because we had young kids, and they were just too rambunctious and nippy to have around our babies.
So, After our 6 year old daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, We wanted to do something for her to help her through her trial, and thought we would, one more time, consider getting a dog. So we adopted a sweet, gentle golden retriever named Brandy. We finally found the one! She was approximately 3 years old when we got her.
