What? A Golden Retriever for adoption? Why? I wish I had a good answer for you, but I don’t.

This is Bubblegum, and she was simply dumped by someone who no longer wanted her. The sad truth is, this is what people do in Turkey. Purebreds are usually bought as puppies and viewed as a status symbol, but when their owner gets tired of them and decides they no longer want to keep them, the dogs are simply discarded.

At the age of six, Bubblegum was forced to figure out how to live life on the treacherous streets. How was Bubblegum know how to find food or water? How was she to know that people can be mean to “street dogs”? How was she to know that cars are dangerous? Why would she ever think that one day her owner would stop loving her? Chew on that for a while, and then decide if you think this dog should stick to you like gum on the bottom of your shoe.
