TO BE KILLED 6/13/19
Meet an oldie but a Goldie!
GOLDIE is perfection. She’s an incredibly sweet, gentle, calm and loving senior lady of 11 years (who looks like a puppy!) and who lost her home when her parent moved to a place where she was not welcome. There is such sadness in her kind eyes, and we know she misses her parent deeply, but she has taken comfort in the cuddles and kisses of the volunteers, and she hopes with all her heart that a family will choose her out of the hundreds of dogs that surround her, many much younger than she is. She is a slice of perfection, who earned herself a coveted LEVEL 1 rating (the very best you can get), and she is spayed as well! Please see the beauty of a senior dog. They have wisdom, they have grace, and they have so many gifts to share with one special family. Will you save Goldie’s life? Message our page or email us at MustLoveDogsNYC@gmail.com for assistance. No one is more deserving of happiness in her golden years.
A staff member writes: “Hey there, I'm Goldie! Don't let my photos deceive you- I'm a small girl but with big dreams - dreams of peaceful walks, a loving home- especially one with a cozy bed! I'm a low maintenance, calm pup looking for a family to match- if you think that's you... please come meet me! You won't be disappointed!”
A Staff Member Notes: “Goldie’s owner had to surrender her to the care center due to moving into a new apartment that does not allow pets.”
