10 year old Brunie came to us from the deep south (Georgia), where she had been tied so tightly by the neck - outside in the heat and bugs, that the chain had become embedded into her neck - - and may have damaged her trachea. Brunie is heartworm positive - and intact. She will need to be treated for heartworm disease and spayed prior to being offered for adoption. If you would like to contribute to Brunie's medical care, please visit our website (www.almostheaven-golden-retriever-rescue.org). Our mailing address and paypal donations buttons are located there. Or, if you prefer, donations may be made directly to our Veterinarians (email for contact information). Please help us to continue helping all the Brunies out there that need us.
