Elvira is a mix of Golden Retriever and probably German Shepherd. At about five weeks old, she and her five siblings were dropped off at a shelter in Alabama. Motherless and abandoned, they came to RAGOM when they were 8 weeks old on a transport to Minnesota. Elvira is a tall girl but weighs only 5.8 pounds so she’s got some weight to put on in the next few weeks before she will be spayed.
She is a beautiful pup who likes to be snuggled. She and her brother, Casper, are being fostered together in Sioux Falls SD. She and Casper play together and then snuggle together in their bed. She is very sweet.
They came with worms and parasites like most puppies and are being treated with two medications. They are already showing signs of wellness and taking advantage of the good and plentiful food they have now.
Elvira being a former Southern belle quickly took to the snow and cold here in South Dakota. She was tunneling in the snow, eating ice and running around chasing her brother. She is very adaptable to living in the North.
If you are ready for puppy kisses, training and being chewed on a bit with puppy teeth, please contact your placement advisor about Elvira. She will be rechecked for weight gain and overall health in three weeks and if all is well, she will get spayed then. Once that’s taken care of, she will be ready for a new home.
Foster mom would like to thank Mary M for taking in the puppies when they arrived from Alabama and Katy D for bringing them to me after a weekend of driving rescue dogs from Pine Ridge Reservation in SD.
