Turkey Dog Update

With the arrival of the TD7 Bunny Plane last month, AGA has brought 159 Golden Retreivers from Istanbul since May 9, 2015.  We have also helped 30 other Golden Retriever rescues across the country and one in Canada to bring in TDs of their own. Total number of TDs who have come to America to AGA and other rescues is 407. Help us continue bringing TDs to Atlanta!

Burping and Bloat
We get lots of questions about bloat and as parents of Golden Retrievers it's something we all need to be aware of. As with many things, prevention can be the best medicine.
How many times a day should you feed your dog? Check out this adogslove.com article to learn that and other tips about
burping and bloat.

At the Dog Park: Who Is Friendly?

Over the past year the "dog park craze" has grown even more. There are many dogs that should NEVER be allowed in one and many owners are oblivious to that fact. So, you're in the dog park, how do you know which dogs to let your dog meet and which ones to avoid?  How do you quickly identify which dogs are friendly and which ones aren't?  The three tips in this Sarah Wilson Dog Expert article illustrate what to look for.

Congratulations to all of our pups who found their forever homes in March. 
Bernie, Blake Lab, Cooper, Dexter, Finn, Goldie, Hugs, Lucy, Neyland & Tucker, Ruffus, Sadie Flowers, Sugar, True Love and Tyrone all found homes this month.
Golden Open Golf and Tennis Tournaments

Nutrition and Rescued Dogs
AGA has learned firsthand the benefits of Solid Gold's SeaMeal™, an overall wellness and digestive health supplement for both dogs and cats.
When they arrive in the U.S. all of our Turkey Dogs start on Solid Gold food for good nutrition and they also are given the SeaMeal supplement for skin/coat and digestive issues. We have also put many of our American dogs on it as well, with much success. And does your dog have bad breath? A few days on this and it will be gone. Check out SeaMeal and their other products at Solid Gold

Welcome, Adopt a Golden Nashville!
