My first pedigree dog



Many ask me how did I start to have Pedigree dogs when I was raised to believe that dogs aren’t bought since there are so many abandoned.

Well my life changed a lot when I was divorced !

At that time I had two street dogs, Roxy and Sininho, that to respect my husband and his family wishes lived only on the yard. The first thing I changed at home !

One month later I started to notice there was a Golden alone on the street were I lived. Since the dog had leash, I thought he had an owner, but I couldn’t believe who was so irresponsible to leave a Golden alone wondering.

One day I came back from work and the Golden follow us, and got in with us.

I warned my sun, in the time with 3 years old, that the dog was probably lost and that we should find the owners since they miss him.
I started phoning the vets and animal shops. One of the vets had a poster and we went there.
Wasn’t him, so we check for Chip. Nothing ! So we vaccine him, made a check-up and left my contacts.


In that complicated moment of my life, Rufus, has we call him, was a blessing. His calm and patience of a 7 year old dog, give us a reason to go out and the patience to allow my son to lay on his bally and speak about everything.

Rufus was one of that special dogs, witch we trust our home and nothing was touch. That we take on a walk and he walked easily and calmly. That ride calmly on the back of the car. So one of those dog models.

His bigger joy was to go to the beach, were we walked and play. He loved to swim and go to people on the water.
Only the smell of the sea, still in the car, tacked several years and he seams a puppy again.

In the end Rufus was all that was expected of a Golden Retriever dog and has was going to know him and read about the breed more I love it.

After 6 months, in the first time I was without my baby, Rufus owners appeared and after a lot of photos and asking for the returning of Rufus I let him go. I spent the rest of the 15 days alone without my two boys.

When my son came back I gave the news and made the promise to get a Rufus that no one could take back.
The pour child for every dog that he saw on the street or in the balcony that seamed like Rufus he started to say that it was him left alone.

Like most people I did the easy way, went to the Internet found a selling add that say excellent line, all exams and easy payment, the one I choose to call.

Of course they say the dogs were wonderful, with all documents and even good for show. A meeting was schedule and me and my son went to see the dogs.

The site of two puppies were enough for us not to leave without one. And I left the payment and left with promises of papers.

There was my first Golden Retriever dog, Brad.
