From His Family:
This story was a bit of “do you believe that sometimes it’s just meant to be”. Well that fits Jin’s story. Jin is a 2 year old golden retriever. He had a happy home for the first 2 years. He had a Mom, Dad and a human girl sibling that he played with. Jin was growing fast and got bigger that his family wanted. So they decided to sell their family pet of 2 years to the dog meat farms that would send him to slaughter.
Luckily our China rescuers heard about Jin. They quickly drove 3 hours each way and negotiated with the family to release Jin to them. Jin was beautiful and very healthy. He was caged a lot because the family didn’t want to handle his energy level. Att first Jin walked odd, due to being in a cage so much of the day.
Well, it was love at first sight with him. He is a big goofy guy. He’s wonderful with everyone and every dog he meets. He has many of the same characteristics that our former golden, named Chief. We were still mourning the loss of our golden boy, Chief. He was truly meant for our home and our family. He brings so much joy to us. He has eased the hurt of losing our Chief. I believe that Jin was supposed to live his life with us here in Kansas City. Some things happen a certain way because that’s the way it supposed to be! We love you Jin!
