Rodney is an 11 year old golden retriever boy who was left at night at the Columbus dog pound saying they could no longer afford to take care of him due to his health issues, so euthanize if they wanted. Nice, right?
Rodney is a warm, loving, very sweet and happy senior golden boy. He has your typical loving golden personality with a disposition to match. He loves, loves people and just melts your heart with one look at him.
Being overweight and older, Rodney has a hard time getting up and down naturally. He does have some arthritis in his hips and knees, but the biggest problem is the spondylosis with his back. He has muscle atrophy in the back end. Our game plan with Rodney is to place him on on meds like NSAID, tramadol for pain. We will start doing walks he can tolerate and put him on a weight lose plan. This is all in order to build some muscle in those rear legs again. We've had very good results helping dogs like Rodney with this program and we anticipate great results.
Rodney is a wonderful boy, but we ask to have no children under the age of 10 years old, as too much activity for the old dog tends to be annoying. If you would like to meet and possible adopt Rodney, please read our adoption requirements
and follow the directions from there.
