Goldie

Name: Goldie
Primary Breed: Golden Retriever Mix
Gender: Female
Entry Date: 01-09-2013
Birth Date: *2003
Adoption Fee:
 $110.00

Update June 2015:
OVER two and a half years have passed and I am still here! In that time, I’ve received a lot of interest, but so far, no qualifying applications have come in for me.  You see, I absolutely CANNOT live with other animals!  I spent most of my life either competing for food with others or in total confinement by myself, because of this, I need to be the only pet in the household. This is also the reason why most Golden Retriever Rescues have been unable to help in my situation. I’m sorry.  I don’t mean to be this way….I spent so many years of my life in a really unfortunate situation where my needs were not met.

I’m also a bit of runner…so I require a fenced in yard to go out into.

Lastly, I’m considered a “senior” dog at age 12.  But, you would never guess my age if you spent any time around me!  I love to run, go for walks and can play fetch for hours! I LOVE tennis balls!

I know that I have a lot of special needs and that adopting me would be a big commitment.  Please know, I did not choose the life I’ve had.  I did not choose to be abandoned and starved.  I did not choose to end up the shelter for so many years.

With that being said, the life I’ve come to know in the shelter is the best life I’ve ever had.  I have lots of human friends here that feed me delicious meals, bathe me, clean my kennel and spend time with me.  There are also lots of volunteers that come to visit me and they take me on walks all the time (and they give me lots of treats too!!)  This is probably the most attention I’ve ever had in my entire life!

Life isn’t so terrible here, but I long for a home and a family to call my own.  I wish someone could look beyond my past and see that I am a wonderful dog who deserves to be loved.

Full Description:  Abandoned by my previous owner and left to perish, I have since been rescued by a team of some mighty fine people.

As a result of my past I have lost my tail, but that is the least of my worries. What concerns me most these days is that I won’t ever find a family who will cherish and adore me, always keeping my best interests in mind. I so want, and deserve, at least that.

Do not let my age fool you, I am full of energy and eager to live life to the fullest. After spending some time at the shelter, it has been determined that I cannot live with other dogs or cats. Due to my past, I suffer from some anxiety. I will require a lot of time, love, and patience. Although they have received many applications for me, they have yet to find just the right fit. If you think that you can provide Goldie with her forever home, please call the Humane Society of North Iowa at 641-423-6241 for more information.  Photo courtesy of Arickx Photography.

Full Description:  I am a handsome boy who is improving on my manners. I know how to “sit” and “lay down” and am very food motivated. I am certain I would be an excellent pet! Having been at the shelter for quite some time, I will need some refresher courses on my training. Full of energy, I tend not to show well here at the shelter as I am very excited to see and meet new people. I will need an experienced owner who can be patient and teach me everything I need to know. Give me a little time and you will quickly fall in love with my sweet personality.

Full Description:  I wandered onto someone’s property looking for help. It was really cold outside and when they opened their door, I walked right in and made myself at home on their couch. Soon after, a nice police officer came and picked me up. I was not a big fan of the uniform, but acted like a polite lady anyway. I came into the shelter very scared, but have tried hard to overcome my fears and to fit in. I hope that someone can give me a chance! Please call the Mason City Stray Animal Shelter at 641 424-3617 for more information. Photo courtesy of Tyler Trenhaile.

Adoption Fee: 
Pre-paid, no fee*

Full Description: I am an adorable and sweet little girl, but sadly I come with a few issues. I will need someone to fully understand my needs in order to adopt me. I was returned to the shelter after being adopted about 3 years ago. I lived with a family with children and a cat. The cat and I really did not care for each other too much. I adored my kids, but got very protective of them and have nipped at other children that I did not know. I am not a fan of people that I do not know and act pretty tough. I would prefer a quiet home without a lot of “stranger” traffic. If you can offer me the home that I need, I promise to be a loyal and loving companion! Please consider me! Please call the Humane Society of North Iowa at 641-423-6241 for more information.
