AGE: Goldie is looking for a retirement home! She is a mellow and sweet 10-year-old Boxer girl who enjoys life and “her people.”
PERSONALITY: Goldie’s favorite activities are mellow walks and lounging around the house (hopefully, one level). She is excellent at napping, and showing you appreciation for loving her. She is well-mannered, a little hard of hearing, and heart-warming.
HIGHLIGHTS: Goldie gets along with other calm dogs, but can be a bit protective of “her people,” so a low-traffic home would be best. The Friends of the Animal Shelter Senior Fund paid for the removal of some benign fatty tumors, and a generous donor has pre-paid her adoption fee.
AVAILABLE: At the Jackson County Animal Shelter, 5595 S Pacific Hwy, Phoenix. Open 11am to 4 pm Tuesday through Friday, and noon to 4pm weekends.
COST: There is no adoption fee for Goldie, and you still get a free wellness visit at a local veterinarian office. Goldie is spayed.
