Goldie

Goldie - or Munchkin as she's lovingly called - is a 5 month old Basenji/Cattle dog mix puppy.  We actually have no idea what breed she is, but it's the closest explanation for the curly tail! Ha!  She was found abandoned with her 3 siblings living under a house at 5 weeks old.  But she's a fighter through & through!

You see, her siblings all left for homes in PA but she had to stay behind.  Goldie has a condition called Congenital Lymphedema, predominantly in one of her hind legs. It's very rare, the Specialist who saw her said he's been practicing for 24 years and has only seen 2-3 cases.  After several consults, the vet feels confident that she's currently a happy, healthy, playful puppy and we life expectancy is 2-3 years.

We'd love for her to find a home where she can find that love & compassion for the 2-3 years she's got.  She lives in a foster home today with other dogs and holds her own!  She sleeps in her crate through the night and is house trained.  If you think you're the person or family for Goldie, please let us know!  We can also discuss more regarding Congenital Lymphedema and AJL's commitment to help with medical bills.
