Goldie (#3693) is a sweet love! She was a street dog in Spain before being rescued. While in Spain, she hit by a car and her hip is damaged. She has osteoarthritis and doesn’t walk far but loves to walk a mile at medium speed. Goldie walks great on a leash. The only time she pulls is when she sees a squirrel. She also loves to catch flies when they get in the house!
Goldie would love a home where she can get on the couch. She is completely housetrained and has been since arriving in her foster home. (Yay!!) Goldie weighs 61 pounds, a perfect weight for her. She rarely barks but she does whine when she wants out or wants to know where her person is. (It is a very sweet whine.)
Goldie is fearful of running dogs and noisy trucks but hasn’t reacted to fireworks. She loves to be scratched around her ears and often flips for a belly scratch! In Spain, she got a parasite when bitten by a sand fly. She has Leishmania and will always have this, but it is very manageable. Goldie needs to eat dog food low in purines and get her urine checked periodically. She is known to run away (fear) so exterior doors have to be watched carefully. GBR has a GPS tracker on her, just in case. She is a wonderful and easy dog!!
All descriptions above are what we know about this dog when it was first released to GBR. Dogs are typically in foster care for three to four weeks. During that time, we will discover its true personality as witnessed by its particular foster family. The dog’s personality traits may change as it becomes accustom to its new foster home.
