Merry Christmas to the Golden Seniors! From Anonymous

Good Morning All
Just to let you know there is a new "lady" at Ragom. She really did not want to be called a senior. She arrived Saturday and let's say she had a tough life. She is 11 years old and was used as a breeder. After visiting the vet there were a few items to fix. I don't know where to start. She has infection around her privates, probably caused by being dirty, ear infections, a couple of tumors in mammary, very overweight, a hot spot, infected tooth and obviously not spayed.
That was enough of the negatives. When she arrived, she had been in a car for hours and after getting out of car she came up to me with tail wagging. She got in my auto and off we went to my home, another two hours. Upon arriving, she did her duty and met the two resident dogs with a bunch of sniffing and tail wagging again. I was told she was not house trained, but that turned out to be wrong. She has not had accident yet!!! In fact she has been on free roam in our home and no problems. She is now on meds for ears, infections, and let's all hope and pray when they look at the tumors there is no cancer. The vet checked her joints and hips and found nothing wrong, and her blood work came out great.
With all her problems, she is still walking around wagging tail and looking for attention [ just touching her seems to make her feel good]. As you can tell she is not ready for adoption yet, but when she is, somebody that wants a, shall we say older laid back "Lady", she would make a great friend and love to have a furever home.
She would love to have a sponsor, her vet bills are a little high. I will update you all next week on her tests. Wish her best of luck.
