Golden Oldie lovers look no further!!!!
Behold beautiful Jackie!!!!! This smokey beauty is 8-9+ years old. She's amazing but she has a sad story. Jackie is heart worm positive and was brought to us in heart failure secondary to Heart worms :( It takes a while to get to this point. Obviously she received NO vet care before we found her. No one cared enough about her to give her the minimal care needed. Now that she is safe, she is on heart meds and is being treated for those horrible heart worms. Get out gross worms! Jackie ain't got time for that!
We need a calmer home for her to recuperate at. That most likely means no other dogs or VERY calm ones to keep her heart rate as low as possible. She does not bark, she is housebroken, and she is the most amazing dog! She does great with everyone and she LOOOOVVVVEEEESSSSS kids! She has a 10 and 13 year old at her foster home.
We know that most people want a young pup, but we have a secret...the older ones are calmer and often far less work. They are content to lay their leads on a soft bed and get lots of love. I mean, what sounds better on a cold snowy night than to snuggle in a warm home with a grateful calm girl like Jackie?
Thanksgiving is coming and she really wants something to give thanks for.
