Hobbs is our fifth golden retriever and our only male. It's hard to say which has been more affectionate but Hobbs is in a league of his own. He is from Turkey and came to us 5 years ago. He has never done anything wrong and is just so happy to be living in what he thinks is Disney World! He is a true gentleman and a sweetheart. He loves other dogs but is more in love with people. At a dog park he says hello to his friends but he mostly goes from person to person and greets them. Then he makes them pet him and continues on to the next victim! He's a true natural therapy dog! Everyone that meets him falls in love He's just a pure joy! And we love him so much!
