Caramelo -1 is a male Golden Retriever born September 17, 2015
and last adopted June 21, 2017.
He is 4 years and 8 months old.
Caramelo represents my boyfriend, Ray ♥ I’m so beyond happy he’s finally home! I’ve searched for over three years for this boy and it was all worth it because he is the perfect pup to represent the love of my life :) In this section, I’ll obviously gush about Ray and our relationship. I apologize in advance for the sappiness ;) lol. In case you’re curious right off the bat, this pup is named Caramelo—instead of Ray—because that is my parents’ nickname for him. “Caramelo” is Portuguese for a joking slang term for a young boy, particularly one who is perceived to be clumsy or shy. My parents—actually, mainly just my dad if we’re being honest—like to mess with Ray and speak to him in Portuguese even though he doesn’t understand it XD So that’s why it’s his nickname. I’d rather name a pet named after Ray without necessarily having his exact name.

Ray and I have been together since May 5th, 2013 ♥ more to come…
Since the time we’ve been together, we have made so many life-changing memories. We have each gone off to college and moved cities. We have competed in tournaments against each other and with each other. We’ve seen our favorite artist live in concert (deadmau5) and had the time of our lives. We’ve traveled to beautiful places and been some of our dream spots: the mountains of upstate New York, Vermont, San Diego, Los Angeles, Florida, Hawaii, and Portugal. We’ve been on road trips for days, listening to our favorite music and laughing all the way. We’ve supported each other’s dreams and passions, and been the source of encouragement during tough times. Our love has never wavered. I couldn’t ask for anyone better to share my life with. We’ve grown so much together, in our individual ways and as a couple as well. As we grow up, we remain perfect matches for each other. He balances me. Whenever I am anxious, scared, or nervous, he is my support system to get me settled and back on my feet. Whenever I am worried, he always knows the right words to calm my racing thoughts. Whenever I am having a bad mental health or self-esteem day, he is there to hold me and distract me and show me how beautiful (and silly) I am. I am there for him in the same way. He still makes my heart flutter. His smile is contagious to me – as is his laugh, his warmth, his kisses. The way he holds me and kisses my head makes me feel safe. He treats me as I deserve, and not an ounce less. He appreciates me, my passions, and my drive. Five years with him have just flown by, and yet we’ve accomplished so much together. I’m ready for a life filled with the happiness he gives me. ♥

Caramelo is finally part of my FooHome all thanks to Hayley, my dear friend :) I don’t think I would’ve accomplished this dream any time soon without her kindness. I’ve been so close several times over the last few years, but finally the search is over ♥ Thank you so much.
The day I brought home Caramelo, I wrote the following on his profile:
I can’t believe I’ve waited over three years to bring this boy home and he’s finally here. You made my dream come true :) You don’t understand how grateful I am. Thank you for being such a good friend to me.
Love you ♥
