Cupid is a big, lovable, 92 lb golden retriever who arrived a week ago from North Dakota. Not much is known about his past, but in recent history we were told his owner passed away and he went to live with a good-hearted person who took him in. Unfortunately, this person had more animals than they could handle, and Cupid liked to wander, so they eventually put him for free on Craigslist. A good Samaritan from a rescue saw the ad, took him in, and contacted RAGOM.
Cupid came into RAGOM in pretty rough shape and needs some time to resolve a number of medical issues before he’ll be available for adoption. He is 25+ pounds overweight, limping/stiff, severely lethargic, and has major skin issues: he has several large lumps and is battling severe skin allergies. His eyes are almost closed from the extra weight and inflammation. He will need xrays, thyroid and blood panels, antibiotics for skin infections, thyroid medication, antibiotics, pain medication, and a teeth cleaning. His lumps will need to be surgically removed and tested for cancer. Cupid's need for allergy medication may be an ongoing expense as he is still scratching his skin raw at times.
We will start loving Cupid up and getting him on the road to recovery!
