Posted February 21, 2011

— The Neuse River Golden Retriever Rescue in Raleigh introduced its newest rescue on Monday. The dog is named Tracker, in memory of WRAL's beloved newshound who passed away earlier this month.

More information about the dog will be available soon, organizers said. 

The NRGRR is a nonprofit organization run by volunteers who are dedicated to helping unwanted and stray Golden Retrievers through rescue, rehabilitation and adoption.

The group covers the eastern part of North Carolina from the Triangle area to the coast.

    mmm Have you all thought of adopting tracker? Golden Retrievers are the most loving smart gentle dogs ever. I have had 2 that were perfect in every way... Not that it will replace Tracker, but will fill your hears with so much love... Just a thought?

    Tracker made such a difference in the lives of so many homeless animals. Even now that he is gone, the good that he started continues. He is still doing his job, just from the Rainbow Bridge. RIP sweet dog.
