Goldie Joy is truly a joy! She is an Aussie Shepherd, Golden Retriever mixed dog who is 13 years young. Her former mom is dealing with a serious illness and was no longer able to care for her. It just broke her heart to let Goldie go.
Goldie likes hanging with calmer dogs, and just being with her people. Goldie is housebroken and she would be an excellent match for a household with older children if you have children in your home. Young children with too much energy would be too much for this sweetheart. Goldie can be a little timid at first, but warms up quickly when someone takes the time to be gentle with her.
We hear all the time that it is too hard to lose a dog so people only want a younger dog. However, even though your time with the seniors may be shorter, you will never find a more grateful, loving companion then a senior dog. Please consider this. This time is like no other and the bond is so deep with these seniors, that every minute with them is more precious then the one before. Please don't let your dread of losing a dog keep you from having the most wonderful relationship you could ever hope for by adopting a senior dog. Seeing the fear in the eyes of a dog replaced with love, joy, and contentment is truly priceless!
