Super sweet Sookie is a gentle and loving girl who just wants to be with her people. She loves being petted, groomed and fussed over, and is a very good girl when being handled for vetting and grooming. If you want a Velcro golden, Sookie is the girl for you. Sookie has chronic dry eye and has six types of medications three times daily to keep her comfortable. This regimen has helped Sookie a lot, according to her foster mom. Sookie is ready to find her very own family.  Will you give her a home for the holidays?

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.
