Solomon

Gorgeous Active Goldie!

Say hello to nearly 5 year old Solomon!

Solomon began his journey with GPR as an overweight severely matted Goldie. Fast forward 4 months and look at him now. He has lost 6.5kg to date, his fur is growing back and he is so happy!

This boy has a larger than life personality and is always so excited to see you!  Solomon is a happy go lucky guy who is looking for a family that are active and will take him on daily walks.  He is currently walked twice a day and is doing well on harness and with basic commands.

This happy bloke loves company and will spend all day with you if he could.  His bubbly personality will certainly win you over.  Solomon loves car travel, & is now using the ramp to get in & out of the vehicle. Occasionally he does need a little help!

Solomon was diagnosed with Hip Dysplasia prior to being surrendered to us (no x-rays were provided).  Our Vet has assessed him with mild HD when he first came into care.  Obviously his excess weight did not help, so it is vitally important that his furever family are committed to continuing his weight loss regime!  Does it stop him from doing anything?  Absolutely not, however his new furever family will be mindful of the fact that when he gets tired from exercise, he does need to rest as his back leg slows down for a short period of time! Included in Solomon’s food are joint supplements which his new family will continue to provide for Solomon’s benefit. 

For anyone who believes that Solomon is the most amazing doggie for their loving family, please take note of the following:

We are looking favourably for a family for Solomon where there is another doggie for company.  We would be looking for a family that are very active and will continue with his weight loss program.   Solomon will not be available for adoption to a home with young children.  Solomon is not good with cats or small animals (ie: guinea pigs etc).  We are looking for a family in a single storey dwelling.

Solomon has been desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, heartworm & intestinal wormed, flea and tick treated, & his adoption fee is $550. He is available for adoption in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast & Hervey Bay only. We do not adopt in regional Qld, Interstate or overseas. Solomon is being currently fostered in Brisbane.  Part of our adoption process is for you to meet our dog with your family, after our Committee have approved an application.

Successful families are chosen based on their compatibility with the individual needs and lifestyle requirements of each Golden in our care.

 

We do encourage anyone interested in adopting one of our Goldies to please read our Adoption Process which is located on our website under the “Our Adoption Process” tab. This lists our process from start to finish.

MEDICAL NOTES ON SOLOMON

 

Solomon has been diagnosed with Hip Dysplasia (mild)

What does this mean?

Solomon was diagnosed with HD at 9 months of age whilst owned by his previous family (he saw a specialist then). When Solomon first came into care he was obese and obviously this impacted on his back legs. Our Vet has diagnosed Solomon with mild HD after examining him. Solomon can still run, walk, play, rumble with the best of them. When he gets tired, his back left leg moves a little differently. Very hard to describe until you actually see it. Once Solomon has rested, he is fine again. While his HD will never go away, it can be managed by exercise, great quality diet, and making sure his weight is under control. Obviously there may be things that Solomon can't quite do (like climb a mountain!), but we haven't found anything yet.


Can his HD get worse over time? Quite possibly, but it may not. It is just one of those things that is unknown. We cannot guarantee any Goldie's continual good health, however we can be totally transparent in everything we know about Solomon, and everything we have done to ensure his continual health and happiness!

Weight loss of 6.5kg as at 8th December - Fantastic !

Tommy

Happy Natured!

10 year old Tommy is a delightful happy guy who just loves life.  He is always smiling and is so happy to be with his family.  He loves a rumble after brekky and dinner with his foster fur brother.  Tommy loves his daily walks and is super excited when he visits the beach every few days.  He will happily wander up to other doggies to say hi and just have a splash around in the water!

Tommy was overweight when surrendered but has lost 3.5kg to date, now weighing in at 32kg.  He is currently on weight control kibble to encourage his weight loss, and he loves his raw BARF.  Tommy is also having joint supplements which would continue with his new family.

He is housetrained and sleeps inside at night, a must for all our doggies. 

Tommy is a very happy excitable boy.  He appears years younger than his 10 years of age.  Although we encourage him to use a ramp, he can jump in and out of the back of our car with ease.  He walks very well on lead and his recall is quite good.

When Tommy gets excited, he does a little “squeal” noise.  To the wrong people it could be deemed as annoying, to us it is just a little quirk he has!  He doesn’t do this all the time.  For example when playing with a few other doggies, he will have a squeal while romping around.  When he gets fed in the morning, and at night – after finishing his food and he begins to rumble with the other dogs for play time, he can squeal then.  It is part of his personality and his new family will love him for it!

Tommy has also had a full dental undertaken.  At the time of Tommy’s wellness check with our Vet, there were no signs of HD, or arthritic changes in his legs.  Tommy does have a callus on his front left leg which had an infection, we have treated with antibiotics recently and we have been given the all clear by our Vet.

What does Tommy Need?

Tommy would suit a family that are home a lot and with no young children.  Tommy likes attention and wants to be with you, so perhaps a retired couple that are active with another doggie for company to rumble with, or a family that works part time.  Tommy has been okay with our resident cat!

Tommy has been desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, heartworm & intestinal wormed, flea and tick treated, and his adoption fee is $450.  Tommy is available for adoption in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Hervey Bay.  Please note we do not adopt interstate or overseas.  Tommy is being fostered in Hervey Bay.  Part of our adoption process is for you to meet our dog with your family, after our Committee have approved an application.

Abbie

Devoted Goldie Girl!

 

6 year old Abbie is a delightful girl who luvs her hoomans!  She adores doggies, however since she was used for breeding in her early days, she has never learnt to play but is slowly starting to know what a good rumble is in the morning with her foster brother in care.  She is very receptive to other doggies if they want to have some “bitey face” fun!  She enjoys the company of big & small dogs and is very respectful of a dogs “space”.

Abbie does know how to sit & she does wait for her food.  She is a slow eater.  She is currently on weight control dry & raw food as she was surrendered into our care overweight at 35kg.  She has lost 2kg to date.  Her ideal weight is around 29-30kg.  She is also having joint supplements to assist her on the inside!

Abbie loves to go for walks & is doing very well on lead.  She hasn’t shown to date that she is reactive to dogs behind fences when out and about.  She loves to play ball & will return it to you & drop at your feet, waiting for another throw!  Abbie is also your typical retriever, she will pick up toys, socks, whatever & bring it to you with a wagging tail and a smile!

Abbie adores swimming & a long lead is a must with her new family at the beach, especially while training in “recall”.  This girl could frolic in the water all day.

Abbie is storm phobic, but is ok as long as she is with her hoomans inside the home.  Abbie will bark to alert you if someone has arrived at your home, or if she is startled by something unusual.

Abbie loves the company of her family and has missed out on so much in her life due to neglect, so her new family will include Abbie in all aspects of their lives, including regular outings, daily walks & socialisation.

 

What does Abbie Need?

Abbie is not suitable for properties with wildlife or homes with small animals (chickens, guinea pigs etc).  Abbie is fine at home during the day if her family works, as long as she has some doggie company.  Abbie would be suitable as an only dog, provided her humans are home (retired etc).  She is not suitable as an only dog if she is left alone all day.  Abbie will certainly benefit from continual training to help her become the best doggie she can be.

Abbie has been desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, heartworm & intestinal wormed, flea & tick treated, and her adoption fee is $550.  Abbie is available for adoption in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast & Hervey Bay.  Please note we do not adopt interstate or overseas.  Abbie is being fostered in Hervey Bay.  Part of our adoption process is for you to meet our dog with your family, after our Committee have approved an application.
