At A Glance
Elsa was living on the streets of Turkey when a small vet took her in and cared for her until it was her turn to come to America. She was completely black from dirt when she arrived at the shelter; after quite a few baths, her beautiful cream-colored coat began to show, and they knew she was a Golden. Elsa and I headed to the vet on Saturday where she got a clean bill of health, other than some skin allergies we are currently working on relieving. She had two oatmeal baths when she came in, along with a long grooming session with Foster Mom, which helped ease a lot of her itchies. After our trip to the vet, we began to give her an antibiotic, along with a special shampoo to use for a week to help with her allergies. In addition, we rub coconut oil on her irritated spots, and she absolutely loves it!
Elsa is one of the most trusting and gentle Goldens I have had the privilege of fostering. From the second I met her, it was like she knew we were here to give her the Golden Life. Here are a few things I have learned in our first few days together.
