For our first “Adoptable Castaway Profile”, I chose Goldie, a yellow Lab Mix that stole my heart at the adoption event this past weekend.
Goldie was found when she was 10 months old behind an abandoned building. Although, she was just a puppy herself, she had recently given birth to her own litter. Unfortunately, the (undoubtedly) cute pups were never found, but Dogs 2nd Chance was blessed to have a new furry friend to add to the brood.
Goldie doesn’t know a stranger, whether human or dog. As I stood at the adoption table, I watched as her little tail wagged at each passerby, and for those who were lucky enough to stop, she showered them with kisses. Men, women, teens, and children approached her and not once did she shy away from the affection.
For a dog who was neglected for the first year of her life, she isn’t afraid to give humans their own second chance at loving her.
I had Midas with me that day, and while most dogs (especially with her petite size) are usually hesitant to approach him, she jumped up and wrapped her little paws around his neck and gave him tons of loving licks. My heart just melted….and Midas puffed up his chest to make sure she saw how buff he was looking that day.
He did look quite dashing.
Goldie loves long walks in the park, Sunday morning drives, and an impromptu game of fetch. She has a heart of gold and a dream to share her love with not just any family, but a very special one.
When I sat down with Goldie, one-on-one, at the local bakery, she took a small bite of her fresh-baked kibble and said, “Rebekah, my beginnings were a little rough, but I was raised to be a forgiving person, and I just want to show someone how dogs really should be loved, by loving a human back. I dream a dream of a home of any size, with any other pets. Any home will do. My only wish is that it’s a loving home”.
If her personality isn’t enough to sell you, don’t fret, my pet. She weighs in at the perfect weight of 42 lbs, not too big and not too small. Because she is quite the lady, she is both house trained and kennel trained. As with all our dogs, she is up-to-date on her shots and microchipped.
