6 Year Old Female
Goldie came to us with five other dogs that were confiscated from their owner for severe neglect. The dogs were fed sufficiently but were kept outdoors in a filthy, freezing, muddy pit with a makeshift lean-to for shelter. They were hugely infested with fleas and other parasites and had not received veterinary care - even for a broken leg in one case. In spite of Goldie's rough start, her initial shyness has turned into her being affectionate, waggy-tailed and loving attention from people. Because Goldie was not kept as a pet, she did not get formal obedience training but has shown she is a quick learner. She is crate trained, walks on a leash and is learning what it’s like to live indoors – on a soft, warm bed for the first time.
Goldie's adopter will need to be knowledgeable and experienced with sight hounds; we will not be placing her as a first-time dog. She will need a home without small animals, including cats, rabbits, birds, etc. She should do fine with other dogs. Goldie is now parasite-free, spayed, microchipped and current on vaccinations. She weighs 77 pounds. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for an application.
