Goldie was abandoned when the family moved and left her behind. She has had a rough life and not been very well cared for. She may be older than the shelter vet thought or she may simply have suffered a lot of neglect in her life.

Goldie has heartworms and they are a severe case. She has been on what is called slow kill since February and is doing well.

Goldie is a very special girl. She's sweet and loves having her back scratched. She also likes to play ball, she doesn't bring it back, but she will chase it. We don't think she can hear too well but that definitely doesn't stop her from being a happy-go-lucky pup, always smiling and greeting me at the gate. Goldie is always smiling and is eager to make new friends.

Goldie needs a home that understands that older dogs make wonderful pets. They also need to have rugs or some sort of surface that she won't slip around on. She would also look wonderful in booties if you had slick floors. Goldie needs to be with someone who wants a dog around. She slike to stay with her people. Goldie is great with other dogs, so she could be the only pet in a home or would do well with dog siblings.


Can’t have a dog of your own? Have a soft spot for old, sick or hard to place dogs? It only takes a $20 a month donation for me to be your virtual dog! I need at least 10 virtual adopters (sponsors) to help cover my monthly costs.  If I have medical challenges I need even more! r having to leave your home, you can have your very own online dog that will send you update emails, make Facebook posts, and be eternally grateful for your support!  Go to the donate link at the top of the page for instructions as to how to donate.

I love my Virtual Adopters!
