Arrival Story: Macleod was a shelter dog. He was found by animal control roaming around as a stray. He looked well taken care of, but nobody claimed him. So they put him up for adoption. I saw him on the county animal shelter's website and went to go see him. Turns out he has the perfect personality, so I adopted him. :)
Bio: Why I named him Macleod: I am mostly of Scottish descent. My Scottish family name is Macleod (of the Macleod Clan). Golden Retrievers are also of Scottish descent. The breed was developed and standardized in Scotland. So I gave him my Scottish family name, because he is now part of my family.
