Mattie's Story

Meet Mattie! Mattie is an 11 year old Golden Retriever who came to us all the way from Beijing, China. Mattie went through several owners while living in China, and eventually ended up in a dog impoundment center where she was scheduled to be euthanized. After making a perilous journey by plane to the United States, she wound up finding her forever home in rural Indiana.  

Although she has lost a step or two as she's gotten older, Mattie still loves all the activities of an ornery Golden Retriever; trips to the local swimming hole, and chasing tennis balls to name a few! Since we rescued her in 2016, Mattie has had a profound impact on our lives and we are so thankful she ended up in our home!
