Goldie is a young 10 year
old male that also rates a "10" for gentle
attitude and loveability! Goldie had
been forced to spent his life living under a
porch. Initially, he was
afraid of almost everything and would flinch
when approached, but now he wags his tail
enthusiastically and wants to be as close as
possible to those who will give him
attention! He has been diagnosed with
Disease, but with his course of antibiotics
his movement and his energy is much improved.
He has a beautiful coat and his forehead
sparkles with little diamond like gold
flecks... perhaps that's how he got his name.
He is good around children and is getting used
to cats. Goldie is starting to know what
"treats" are all about and he will play with a
ball (I'm not sure if he ever had a toy.)
Goldie is waiting for the right
person or family to give him lots of love in
his senior years, and I know he gives back as
much as he receives! It is said that
just being with Goldie makes you feel more at
peace with the world.
Goldie is being fostered near LaCrosse,
Goldie is fitting right in as a wanted and
loved part of a family! He is still looking
for just the right person or family to give
him lots of love and he'll even sit in your
lap to prove it!
Being converted from an outside to an inside
dog has not been a problem, as Goldie has not
had any "accidents" in the potty training
department with diligence in getting him
outside 3 or 4 times a day.
He really looks forward to getting outside to
run, go for a walk, or jump and play the
"dodge the adult" game! All this from a dog
that should have come to us with more than a
handfull of potential problems... but didn't.
His Lymes Disease seems to have responded well
to treatment as he is moving better that we do
most of the time!
as for adjusting to the cats??? They are all
As for the neighborhood adults and kids and
Goldie??? I think the neighbors are his
foster families too, as he seems to have won a
few hearts in our neck of the woods
