Golden retrievers are amazing energetic dogs that are perfect for active people. Numerous retrievers get adopted from shelters every year. There are also people that will go as far as adopting them from another country, just like one couple in the following story.
Kaitlyn Bristow and Jason Tartick are former winners of the show The Bachelor. They are proud owners of two rescued Golden retrievers. Together they shared how they adopted them in a recently featured video on The Dodo’s YouTube channel.
The first golden retriever that the couple adopted was Ramen. He came from South Korea, and Kaitlyn got very emotional during her first meeting with him. Since rescued dogs often have unfortunate pasts, she expected him to be a little difficult to handle, but that wasn’t the case.
Ramen was far from a difficult dog. He accepted Kaitlyn’s hug with no signs of resistance. It seems like he knew he was in good hands, so he made no fuss.
Soon after adopting Ramen, Kaitlyn wanted another dog. Jason wasn’t sure about getting a new dog. Still, he went ahead and adopted another dog to surprise her. Their second dog was another golden retriever named Pinot.
One day, Jason told Kaitlyn to meet him at the park and brought Pinot. He pretended it was a friend’s dog but later revealed it was actually their new dog. Kaitlyn was in disbelief at first, but she was over the moon once the reality sunk in.
Ramen and Pinot got along instantly. The couple also found out that their dogs have mostly matching DNA. It means there’s a high possibility that they have the same father and are half brothers. This is very likely because they both came from the same rescue organization.
This couple is just one example of celebrities who are passionate about dogs. The Dodo has a series of people like them on their YouTube channel. Find out more by watching their video below.
