A family a friend and I had been helping had taken in 2 golden retrievers. One was very submissive and let all of the other dogs eat her food. When we adopted her she had no name, 3 kinds of worms, and starving (weighing only 26 pounds, and should have been about 40). You could feel every bone in her body, and she had never come into season at about a year old. We gave her shots, had her wormed, had a spa day, and brought her home as a new “sister” to our 4-month old golden puppy, Lucey. Lizzie is going to be 9 on her “gotcha” day, January 29, 2016!
