Far and away from the roiling Atlantic, Portland has become the new home for two golden retrievers, refugees from the ravages of Superstorm Sandy. The two dogs, forcibly abandoned when their owner was rescued from flood-waters, are healthy and well, but looking for a new home well away from the east coast.
Two golden retrievers displaced during Superstorm Sandy arrived in Portland Sunday afternoon to find a new home.
Sandie, 5 years old, and Bayley, 6 years old, are purebred golden retrievers who lived in the New Jersey borough of Lavallette until Superstorm Sandy destroyed their neighborhood.
