09September Maddie 280MADDIE

Maddie, her name means sweet, joyful, loving and a need to serve humanity. This truly describes my girl who was found abandoned and starving with six new mouths to feed. Thanks to some very special guardian angels and RAGofAZ, seven beautiful dogs are in loving homes.

Maddie soon earned the title of “Mom of the Year 2012” and her story quickly spread through the rescue community.

Maddie currently is the official Golden for the annual “Links of Gold” golf tournament, proudly representing RAGofAZ. On the day of the event she loves thanking all the golfers and diners who help make our annual fundraiser a huge success.

Her free time is filled with greeting all her friends in our neighborhood, playing with her best friend Bixler, a black lab and just being the joy of my life.

Thank you RAGofAZ for letting me adopt this beautiful lady.
