Dayton's Happy Tail

Can you believe this adorable 4-5 year old boy was found as a stray? This cocker/golden retriever mix is always smiling and makes friends everywhere he goes! Who could leave this smiling sweetheart?!

Dayton came to OBG in August of last year at a whopping 70 pounds.  After exercising regularly and watching his calories in his foster home, he got down to 53 pounds with only 5-8 more to go.  He is a joy to have around -- he loves balls and toys and will entertain himself by tossing them in the air if you are too busy. 

His wish for a forever home came true and he moved to his new home in Virginia in early December. We heard from his new Mom and he is doing great. She said he is one "happy doggy!" They had company visiting over the holidays, including a Golden Retriever and a Shih Tzu/Yorkie mix, and he had a ball.  He really bonded with Tucker, the Golden Retriever and they shared a game of fetch out with their humans. Dayton has bonded quickly with his new Mom and shadows her closely.  His Mom closed her note with, "Can't express enough how happy I am to have such a wonderful dog. Again I am so grateful to OBG for helping make this all happen."

We are so happy you found each other. Thank you for opening your home and your heart to Dayton!
