I often ask myself why someone would give up this particular dog or that particular dog and then I meet a dog like Monroe and I wonder, why the hell would someone give up this dog. I know, I know. Golden Retrievers are stereotyped to be great family dogs blah blah blah but Monroe really is a great family dog so I hope he goes to a great family.
The best way to check on the adoption status of this dog (and other dogs and cats and other small domestic animals) is to visit Toronto Animal Services adoption website or call 416 338 6668 for the Toronto Animal Services South shelter. If the dog is no longer on the TAS adoption website, it's probably because it's been adopted already.
