Astro

Astro is a young golden retriever available for adoption from Golden Retriever Rescue Resource, a golden retriever rescue serving Ohio, Indiana and Michigan.blue dog paw
Meet just turned one year old Astro. He is as sweet as he looks, loving, cuddly and very spunky. It was thought that Astro may have been born with a birth defect that causes him to leak urine. Because of financial reasons, the family who loved him surrendered Astro to get the help he needs thanks to your continued donations!
After months of being in and out of doctors with over $2,000 in expenses nothing has worked for Astro. He saw an internal medicine specialist at Med Vet in Columbus in May. The doctor felt there was an inflammation, infection in the boy's prostate and was causing the issue. Nothing showed up on an ultrasound, but when he was palpating Astro's prostate he yelped in pain. The doctor placed him on a different antibiotic from the other medicine he had been on to see if this solves the incontinence issue. Yes! We are very hopeful this has now been resolved!

Update 7/4: Astro is doing well! He's not had any incontinence issues since after finishing this latest antibiotic. We are very hopeful he can now go to his forever home.

We can only help dogs like Astro by your kind donations towards these extra ordinary medical expenses.



If you would like to be considered a candidate to adopt Astro, now is the time to apply. Please read our adoption policies and follow the directions from there if you qualify for his adoption.
Because we do not know his complete background, no children under 10 years old with this adoption.
