Rodney is asking for your help! Rodney came to G.R.I.N. as a stray from a local dog pound on April 23, 2013 and estimated his age to be between 6 and 7 years old. When he came to us, Rodney was loaded with fleas and as a result has a terrible skin infection which is receiving medication for this problem and his skin issues should be resolved and seemed to be in great physical condition with the exception of one very large issue; his ear canals on both sides are completely closed and very infected.
Our veterinary partner feels that the ears became this way due to chronic untreated ear infections. When that happens, the ear canal becomes very thickened and can turn to bone and the infected ear drums are usually ruptured. Rodney is currently receiving antibiotics for the infections but the infections will not resolve with medication. He will require a surgery known as a bilateral ear ablation which means that his complete ear canals are removed and the skin flap is sewn together. The prognosis for him is very good if he has this type of surgery. Due to his constant untreated, chronic ear infections, Rodney has lost his hearing and unfortunately the surgery will not return his hearing ability. But, with the surgery, Rodney’s ear infection issues will be resolved and he will then be able to go to his new forever home and not continue in additional pain due to the infections. Rodney is a very sweet, happy Golden boy in spite of his ear problems. He loves all people and other dogs. Please click on READ MORE to see how you can help!
This beautiful senior girl is Sophia. She is a sweet girl and who couldn't resist this perfect golden. May is Senior month and her adoption fee is waived so please consider bringing Sophia or any of our other wonderful Senior goldens into your home. They have alot of love left to give! You can read about Marty and all of our goldens who are waiting on their forever homes on our Available Goldens pages. If you can't adopt or foster a golden with G.R.I.N., but would like to help one (or more) of our rescued goldens, you can help us by becoming a sponsor of one or more of these rescued golden beauties! As you look through our pages of "Available Goldens", you will see that many are sponsored but these goldens still have NO ONE to sponsor them and we need your help: Thank you for helping each of our sponsorsed Goldens! We are asking for your help! Our goal is to have all of our goldens sponsored with one or more sponsors. A "Golden Sponsorship" is easy and a great way to help some very deserving goldens. Here's how to become a sponsor.
If you have a soft spot in your heart for those precious white faces, we have a special for you!!!
