And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest night.
I'll be your friend ♥Susie

Note from his foster mom: Aton is a sweet, energetic well-mannered golden. He loves to walk and is well-behaved on the leash, never pulling or going after other dogs even when they are out of control. He is very good home alone and just waits until I get back. He really loves to ride in the car sitting in the back watching out the window. He is a cuddler and loves his humans. He was gentle when he met some children.
