Heidi has come a long, long way in the past 2.5 weeks. She is the sweetest, most gentle old gal I have ever met. Very, very gentle. She would be wonderful with very young kids or elderly. Her previous owner taught her to lie down when people approach, so no jumping. What Heidi wants and needs more than anything is lots of love and attention. She is shy and spends time in her kennel or a den like area where she feels safe; she would love someone to spend some time sitting near her so she can come to them and get petted. She loves to paw me to keep on petting her endlessly and she just loves to be brushed. Heidi has been to the vet. She tested positive for Lymes disease and has started her 3 week course of antibiotics to treat it. She also had some significant dental work done last week to extract some badly broken teeth and to get a good cleaning. She is recovering like a real trooper and other than moistening her food to soften it, she’s back to normal. She will go in for her spay next week. We’ve decided that Heidi and Champ do not need to be placed together. What they both need is a lot of human attention. Heidi’s new humans will get a lot of Golden loving in return!
