Ella
female

 Hi, my name is Ella! So happy you are reading about me. I am a senior golden (and I’m not telling my exact age)! I ended up at a local shelter and then came to Love a Golden Rescue and on to a wonderful foster home. I am a very good girl, totally house trained and get along well with the resident dog. I do have a little arthritis in my hips and take medicine for that. I do best on carpets, not slick surfaces. A ranch style home would be best, however I am fine with a couple of stairs. I ride well in the car and love everyone!

Meet Bailey from As Good As Gold Rescue!


Bailey
male Doodle

I'm so in love with life! My ultimate joy comes from people; spending time with them is pure bliss. When my foster mom comes down the stairs in the morning, I can hardly contain myself. “She’s here, she’s here!”I have been blessed with an amazing foster family. The family includes three children … added bliss! Sometimes we play a bit, but when they’re busy with homework, you can find me lying on the floor right next to them. To further explain, I was very recently rescued. One day while I was lying outside at the rescue, I was feeling uncomfortable, unhappy, and simply overwhelmed with life. Then, a very nice lady (I found out later she was a volunteer from As Good as Gold) came up and started talking to me with soft kindness in her voice. She took me with her and then found a foster family to take me in. My foster family and I certainly have bonded. My ultimate goal, though, is to find my forever home. Or, perhaps, it will be my next foster or foster-to-adoption situation. Check out my fancy wagon! It’s a comfy spot and provides me an opportunity to see the world with my foster family. The wagon is helpful because, you see, I have a permanent disability; my back and rear legs are paralyzed as the result of a spinal injury. The paralysis doesn’t stop me from pursuing what I can of life, but it does require extra care from my family.

BELOW ARE
EMERGENCY MEDICAL DOGS
Due to the COVID-19 virus ALL of Love a Golden's 2020 fund-raisers, which usually fully fund all our rescues in need of medical care, have been cancelled.  The dogs below have surgeries or other medical needs that are very expensive.  Since we cannot fund-raise in our usual way, they DESPARATELY need FOSTER BUDDIES to help with the expense.   It will be quite some time before they are ready for adoption.


Gretchen
female
Gretchen is a very sweet girl, small at 50 lbs.  She was 15 months when she came to rescue from a breeder in July 2020 and had recently had a litter of puppies.  Gretchen was released from the breeder when it was discovered she had bad hips.  Her first surgery following her rescue will be at the beginning of September; the second surgery 10 to 12 weeks later.  
 
Gretchen is not at all familiar with city noises, cars etc.. however she has become comfortable in her foster home and yard but has far to go in the big world.   Each day she is excited to go on a walk but once outside she is very wary. Her foster home counts her success by how many houses she can walk by each day.  At first it was a matter of only feet, but as of this writing she did four houses.  This will be a very important part of her rehab so the goal before surgery is to get her comfortable and be able to walk around the cul de sac.

It will be a very long time before she is ready for adoption.  She will need to recover from both the surgeries, become comfortable with the world and trained to not be a flight risk.
