Hope is a stunning 4 year old purebred Golden. AGK volunteers rescued her from a bad situation. She is a shy dog, fearful of humans and new situations. Hope will need special, patient adopters willing to put in the time and effort to continue building her trust in humans. Her AGK fosters are wonderful and have worked with her for over a year to prepare her for an adoptive home. She has come a long way, but she has many special needs. Despite her fears, she is very sweet and is learning that pets from humans are good! She has a deformed front paw, and can tire out easily on walks. She is very good with dogs and we will be requiring a confident dog in her adoptive home. Adopters must have a fenced yard. **We are requiring a Knoxville area adopter for Hope to insure a smooth transition to her new home.**
