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,
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!

|SEVERAL RESCUE ORGANIZATIONS, INCLUDING
LOVE A GOLDEN, HAVE AGREED TO CROSS-POST
THE SPECIAL NEEDS DOG IMMEDIATELY BELOW.
Meet Bailey from As Good As Gold Rescue!
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,
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.

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 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.
