Meet Goldie!

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.
