(Pictured far right) We must say it would be hard to find a nicer boy then Cody. He is always happy and has never met a stranger! He is an unbelievably sweet 7 year old golden retriever who was taken to our local dog shelter by his family because they were moving. He is just an amazing boy who is good with other dogs and loves lots of attention!
We suspect he had a bit of a hard life as he arrived at the shelter just infested with fleas. His fleas are now gone and his hair in spots is growing back nicely. He was also thin and appeared to perhaps have issues with the cruciate ligaments in both legs.
Cody saw the orthopedic vet on December 15th and it was confirmed he needs to have surgery on both cruciates repaired. He is scheduled for his first cruciate surgery in January.
We also found out he has a grade 5/6 heart murmur and after his ECHO was put on atenolol to make sure his heart is not working too hard. So far he is asymptomatic when it comes to the heart issue. We will be checking with the cardiologist on a protocol for his anesthetic during his surgeries to keep him as safe as possible. The estimate for his first surgery is $2,476.63. Would you sponsor Cody and help us repair his legs? We will list your name here as his sponsor. Thank you so much as usual for all your help for these goldens!
There will be more updates to come as we learn more about Cody. No children under the age of 10 years old with his adoption since we do not know his background. At this time we are not accepting new applications for adoption. We have a list of qualified families waiting for a dog. Please check back on our adoption policies
page where we'll announce when we will start sending out applications to adopt once again.
