Bridget will be 5 years old on December 22 . She got an early birthday and Christmas present this year when she was brought to RAGOM. Ruby is a retired mama from South Dakota who was dropped off at a humane society on 10-31 and then spent time in a boarding facility until she arrived at our house on 11-10. She came in at the same time with Emma (15-296) and Ruby (15-297). We had both Ruby and Bridget for 3 weeks. When they were not making any progress, it was decided to separate them.
She is a beautiful darker red golden. She is petite - she has never been weighed but we would guess she is 50-55#. She is up to date on all of her immunizations and was heartworm negative. She was treated for worms along with Ruby and Emma. She will need a vet exam soon and then be spayed.
Bridget was like a wild mustang when we attempted to put a leash on her for the first several weeks. We were not able to touch her until a week ago. But, wow, is she making progress every day. Today was a milestone when we took her for a walk for the first time. We are now able to pet her and she will lie beside us on the floor when we're sitting in the living room. She is still very, very skittish and runs away with any sudden movements or noises. She is just starting to be part of the pack (our 4 resident goldens) and watches what they do all the time. Her crate is her safe spot and she has just started coming out of it on her own. She has had no accidents in her crate or anywhere in the house. She is not treat/food motivated at all and it takes her quite awhile to eat her meals.
Bridget is definitely a work in progress - but we are amazed at the progress she makes every single day. She is learning to trust.
