Nacho the Golden Boy is Now in Good Hands

Share This Story!

A golden retriever named Nacho made his way from Elba, AL to St louis, MO with the help of many new friends.


Dale South, driver and foster for Nacho getting ready to load Nacho for take off from Tuscaloosa , AL.

Due to bad weather (ice, packed snow with limited to no braking, and small airplanes don’t mix well), he was transported by ground from Elba, AL to Tuscaloosa, AL. Jim Carney picked up the trip in Tuscaloosa, AL and flew Nacho to Covington, TN. There, Tim Winters loaded up the golden boy and flew him to St Louis, MO.

Love A Golden, http://www.loveagolden.com, started the proess by posting the request on Pilots N Paws. Becky Harshman was the transport coordinator while Dale South put in some time behind the wheel as well as fostered Nacho.

    … i don’t see pure golden there – my bff and i agree there’s a good shot of either chesapeake bay retriever or nova scotia duck toller. it’s the elegant face structure – goldens have a more open, down-to-earth face shape.

    We want to thank all of you for your hard work to get Nacho ( who we now call Bogey) to St Louis. We are the lucky ones to have adopted him. He is a great addition to our family! He is the sweetest soul.
