This is the most recent information available; however, it may change as we learn more about the dog.

Moose and Taffy are a bonded pair of senior goldens.  They have been together all of their lives.  It is the surrendering owners hope and my suggestion that they be adopted together.  They were surrendered to RAGOM because their owner recentlypassed away and the surviving family could not keep them due to the number of resident dogs and space limitations in their home.  They are both great passengers in the car and I understand they were used to travelling with their previous owner.  It is apparant that they have been loved and well cared for.  It is also obvious that they are distraught about their change in circumstances.  Moose spends a good deal of time waiting by the door.  Taffy is either at my side or Moose's side.  They both are housetrained and well behaved.  For the most part they get along with my pair of resident goldens and they pretty much ignore the cat.

Taffy suffers from some skin allergies that have been controlled with benadryl.  Over the past few weeks she has developed some hot spots and is taking antibiotics to treat the infection.  She is already showing much improvement.  I also believe that Taffy is having a difficult time hearing.  You have to raise your voice or get her attention before she will follow commands.  Taffy is spayed and a petite 59 pounds.  She shows some signs of stiffness when she wakes up from a nap, but likes to roam about the fenced yard as much as the other dogs.  We will get an update on her skin condition after she has been to the vet for a checkup and vaccinations.

Taffy is sweet and quite a bit of a velcro dog.  She can get a bit snarky with my resident female golden over food and my attention.  I have quickly learned to feed them at different times and to give them each some individual attention.
