Berry has been adopted! More updates coming soon!
August 23rd, 2015 Update:
Berry is the most charming boy I have ever come across. I truly have never met a more gentle "old soul". He is a people pleaser and loves attention.
He is currently on antibiotics for his Lyme disease treatment. He has never shown any symptoms of the disease, so it is thought by the vet that he contracted it years ago and his body is just producing antibodies, thus the Lyme positive test. We are planning a dental surgery soon as well. He has some overgrown gum tissue covering one of his teeth. It's painful for him when he chews his tennis balls and bleeds a bit. The vet told me its a simple surgery.
In the meantime, we continue our walks and playing ball in the yard. I have never seen a dog smile, but this sweet boy smiles constantly. I adore him as does anyone who meets him.

Berry is a true gentleman. He is an old soul and is quite the charmer. He has fit in perfectly with my other dog, Missy. She can be a bit of a challenge, but Berry has handled it like a champ. His calming nature has made her a better dog. He loves playing ball and taking walks. He is a curious guy and seeks out people on our walks for some petting and love. He is the kindest, most graceful boy with fantastic manners.
On our first vet visit, he tested positive for Lyme and other tick borne illness. He is being treated with doxycycline for 28 days. He also had a slight ear infection and is being medicated for that as well. He will need a dental surgery that requires removing some overgrowth of gingival tissue.
Berry is one of a kind and the sweetest golden I have ever come across. He has certainly stolen my heart and the hearts of anyone else he has come across.

Berry arrived on Friday night. He was mellow and sweet and has lived up to my initial impression of him. He loves people. He is a very laid back boy with impeccable manners. He has settled in nicely, is eating and drinking like normal. Loves walks. Is a bit nervous in the car and shakes a bit. He is eager to please and all around a terrific golden.
