Sunny & ShadowBio: Meet Sunny and Shadow – a wonderful pair of purebred golden retrievers. They are 9 years old and are brother and sister. Shadow weighs 114 pounds and Sunny weighs 90 pounds. Their heartbroken former owner, who really loved them, had to move to a smaller house and give them up.

They are very bonded and we have promised to keep them together. They had been living outside in an abandoned yard where the neighbor had helped in taking care of them. As you can see, Sunny had a haircut because she was so matted from being left outside. We need to find them a home where they can be king and queen again! Both are house trained, crate trained, and LOVE to ride in the car! They compete with each other for attention from humans; it’s a big deal for them, and they love it!  It's quite adorable!
