Al the Golden Retriever

Al the Golden Retriever was taken in together with his brother Leo.
Last month, Leo left ARK with a very kind new mother.

When Al arrived, he had filarial worms and bald patches all over his body.
When he was examined, we found out that hypothyroidism was the cause, but you can see that now that he’s on medication, he’s nice and fluffy.


Al is friendly, cheerful, and well-behaved.
Feeling a little lonely, however, he desperately wants to make friends and expresses this with his whole big body and spirit.

Al absolutely loves people.
Whenever one of the staff walks by on the path, he follows and calls out to them.
But everyone is busy. 
As soon as he has finally settled down, someone walks by again and he gets excited.
Our hearts ache for him.

One of the hardest things I have found about being at ARK is when rescued dogs and cats pass away at ARK without ever finding a family of their own to love them.

Al has filariasis, and takes medicine for hypothyroidism.
He’s a large, older dog with an illness.
We must find someone to adopt him soon.

Why does it have to be this way?
As I was driving yesterday, I saw several elderly golden retrievers out on walks.

Will Al see the day when he can relax and be a normal household dog like them?
