WONDERFUL UPDATE on Goldie…
    Jan 2020 UPDATE FROM Goldie’s foster mom…
    ‘I have had Goldie since April. Since having two massive tumors removed in June, she has thrived. All of her hair has grown back and her tail (once bald) is completely full. I am regularly stopped by strangers commenting how gorgeous she is. She is always waiting by the door with her tail wagging when I come home and keeps within a five inch distance of me at all times. She spends most of her days snoozing but is always eager for her daily walks in the park and to the local coffee shop. She loves fresh air and being in the woods to explore and trot around. Some of her favorite activities include: rolling in the grass, having her belly rubbed and eating snacks! She actually jumps when she sees her food, especially her green beans. 😉 Everywhere she goes, she makes new friends, especially children. Her sweet goggle face just reminds me of just how resilient we all are with unconditional love and care.Thanks to GRRAND for granting me this opportunity to care for this animal; my sweet goggle-faced superhero. 😉 I can’t believe how lucky I am to be her companion.’

    upon arrival to GRRAND: 3-2019
    Our sweet girl Goldie has been through a lot and is just really lucky to have found a foster home where she can just relax and get lots of love and attention! Animal control brought her to a shelter and they called us, so really, we do not know much about her other than what was determined by the shelter:
    They say she was probably bred non-stop and she has 2 very large tumors, her teeth are not in the best of shape and her hearing is not the best. It is unanimous that Goldie is just the sweetest girl with lots of love to give to you. She gets along well with other dogs and walks well on leash. Our beautiful girl may have a little bit of arthritis going on, but she gets along pretty well and is said to be very happy and peppy!
    Goldie is very low maintenance, but she had to fend for herself for a while and so she does do some resource guarding of her food, but with work and love, she will be just fine in no time.
    We are having her tumors looked at, and they can safely be removed, so GRRAND will pay the expenses and this happens mid April.
    UPDATE:
    ?We have learned that one of her large tumors has mast cells in it (cancer) and it has likely spread to her mammary glands. The vet is recommending removal of the largest mass, but no spay and just palliative care for her going forward.
