I am a mix, but I sure have a golden heart!  I am around 15 years old and was found in a ditch where I was left to die.  A good person found me and called As Good as Gold to help me.  They took me in and now I am at a wonderful foster home where I get to be loved and taken care of for the rest of my life!  Isn’t that the most wonderful thing?  I am Heartworm Positive and have severe arthritis and have a hard time moving around.  I also have a lot of lumps and bumps.  I am getting the best care!  If you would like to help dogs like me, please click HERE to make a donation.

If interested please fill out our online adoption application form; please make sure you fill in every required field/question or your submission will not go through. Please note that we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care and our bios are our current observations; we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history and as such breed and age estimates are an educated guess.
