Goldie, a male mix golden retriver mix, has been a homeless dog for a long time in Red Lake.
Carol has been feeding him and brought Goldie to the August clinic. There he was spotted by Meredith a volunteer from RAGOM (Retrieve a Golden of Minnesota) who was at the clinic. We had no space at the shelter and poor Goldie would have been neutered and released again to the streets. Thankfully Meredith and RAGOM took Goldie into their program and he is now up for adoption!!

FROM RAGOM'S WEBSITE:
Goldie is an approximate 1 year old Golden Retriever mix who was found as a stray. He was neutered on August 22 and is up to date on shots. He is heartworm negative and is currently being treated for parasites.
This boy is a total Love Bug and is a joy to foster. He does great on the leash and after 2 days of struggling to get him in the wire crate he now heads in with no resistance. Loves his food and exhibits no resource guarding. Likes other dogs and will introduce him to kids in a few days.
He had his vet check yesterday and charmed all the staff at the Annandale Vet Clinic.
He weighs 68lbs and has a typical Golden coat on his back and legs with a thicker heavier coat on his head and neck. He loves to be brushed ( except for his tail ) and he is becoming a real beauty.
Goldie will be at Godzilla on September 17th and is looking forward to making his RAGOM debut.

Goldie is doing just FABULOUS ! He adjusted to traveling this past weekend and enjoyed it at the lake. He loves going for walks ( is great on the leash) and being brushed. He has a beautiful gait and his little ears bounce up and down with every step. He was great with my two granddaughters ages 5 and 7 and loves people in general. I am followed at all times when he is out of the crate.
He is in the toddler stage but does have supervised free roam in the house throughout the day. Does not mind the large wire crate and now heads in there when I say " kennel" ...of course there is a treat that follows!
Goldie is meeting a couple in the next few days to see if they are a good fit for his forever home.
