Meet our newest senior girl Isabelle. We are unsure of Isabelle's age and she isn’t telling. She was a stray that was treated for heartworm by a local shelter. The shelter reached out to IGRR realizing she needed some extra help finding her forever home.
Isabelle is a quiet girl that needs another dog or two to make her feel safe when her two-legged family is away from the home. She has some anxiety issues and can't be left in a kennel but she does well in the home when foster mom and dad are at work for 8-9 hours a day.
Even though Isabelle's hearing isn't the best, she has some anxiety about thunderstorms as well. She is currently taking medication daily for her anxiety and requires some additional medication during thunderstorms. She looks great in her thundershirt which helps too. Since in rescue, she has gotten stronger physically and mentally. She eats well and occasionally likes to flirt with the younger boys in the house.
Meet Jerzze, our newest Golden ready to find her final furever home! She is almost 10 years old and is looking for her retirement home. Don't get me wrong, she is now slowing down for retirement, just looking for the perfect home to enjoy her senior years!
She is still pretty energetic and loves to play ball, and with some weight loss I'm sure she will be even more lively. She has had full labwork done and everything looks great! Her thyroid is a low normal and will need to be monitored but hey, what Golden doesn't have thyroid issues, right?! :-)
Every day she is coming out of her shell and becoming more of a happy dog. She really just wants to be around someone all the time, but yet does very well crated when no one is home. She will need to have a home with a fenced yard, it is VERY difficult to get her to potty on a leash and she will hold if for longer than is healthy. But... she should also not be left unsupervised in a fenced yard for extended periods of time unless you have no qualms about giving baths and don't care what happens to your flower beds! She is a digger and a roller. Not dig-out-under-the-fence-to-run-away kind of a digger but just because she thinks it's fun to get dirty. She really is a very sweet dog that is happiest laying on the floor next to the couch nudging your hand for more pets. Having a senior dog with that sweet white face in your house is very rewarding so please consider bringing Jerzze into your home if you are looking for a companion. She is great with other dogs and cats!
Lua is a 7 year old golden doodle. She is house broken and very well behaved when left alone in the house. She does not like crates and I have not found one that will hold her. She knows sit, drop and stay and usually comes when called. Inside the house she is just a doll and she really wants to please. She stays off the furniture and has not counter surfed even when there is food on the counter. She loves attention but lays down when you tell her enough. She barks at deer or if someone comes to the house. She is not concerned about either the vacuum or thunder
When outside, she is a different dog. She loves to chase and track anything that will run (squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits, cats, etc). I have been working on getting her focus back on me with treats but for the first few minutes it is a lost cause. She has never gotten out of my 5 foot chain link fence but her previous owners indicate that she will climb, or dig out of the yard. Lua is also very, very dog aggressive. She not only snarls and pulls towards other dogs but she wants to chase after them and in her previous home she attacked another dog.
Lua needs a special home. She needs an experience owner that does not care to walk her and a very secure fenced in yard. She also needs a home with no other pets. According to her previous owners she is very good with children. Her new owners need to be very careful that she does not slip out of the house or yard. She has so many pluses and only the one negative and is very easy to love.
Meet 10 year old King. This boy is a retired stud dog who has lived most of his life outdoors. He lacked socialization as a very young dog so he finds people kind of scary. He is adapting to living indoors but is still very shy. He is looking for a quite home with another confident dog and without small children. A fenced in yard is also required to keep him safe as well. He is a very handsome boy that deserved to be loved in senior years.
