Come one all you who love red heads and seniors- she's BOTH in one charming package!

I have a beautiful Golden foster who needs a home. She is about seven (was told ten, but I don't believe it, she was adopted as a young adult by former owner, age unknown), and except for being obese is in great health. Her former owner spoiled her to the point of cruelty, and never exercised her- so she is very fat. However, the weight will come off and already is starting to since I have been fostering her. She LOVES to swim, play ball, squeak her toys, get petted, and go for walks. She's the perfect house dog, too!!! She is spayed and current on everything. PM me, and her adoption fee is only $25 and she comes with supplies. She is trained and doesn't need a crate, and she doesn't get on furniture or anything. Good with kids and other dogs, and safe with cats. Here's pics! Ask me about Ivy!

Transport can be arranged.

Yes, they will if I need them to, and I'm fostering for Heidi's Legacy now too if I need to.

I also have someone interested who is coming to meet her this afternoon!

I posted her all over. I screen VERY carefully anyone I find through postings, though. Once you filter through the losers, there are some really great people out there! This one is a stay at home mom with a 16 year old daughter. She's a vet tech, and knows the importance of taking the weight off of her. If her references and home check all check out, and they have a connection, Ivy may just go home tonight! They are looking for a sweet, calm, older dog to accompany them to the beach and on camping trips and so forth. Ivy would love that! Wish more people had the mind set of wanting a senior!

And then if they get along, I drive back to their house and check it out. Dog comes home with me if I don't like something. Contract too. Don't worry, I've done plenty of adoptions! ;)

Well I am going to keep my fingers crossed for Ivy. She looks perfect! Anyone is going to be lucky to adopt her. I think we decided when we are ready (which will be awhile from now) we will go with a senior.

God she looks like Carmella. If I wasn't dirt poor and hundreds of miles away, I would so consider her.

I am sure she will find a loving home sooner than you care for. ;) Good luck Ivy!

What was it about her you didn't like?
You have to listen to your gut!
