Goldy is a beautiful yellow lab with soft, thick fur. She had a rough start in life, but is truly an inspiration to all of us. Not only was she deaf when she came to live with us, but underweight with several lumps and her front legs were bruised and barely working due to untreated physical injuries that caused them to heal incorrectly. She was in such terrible shape that even the veterinarian didn't think she was going to make it. With proper care she is at a healthy weight with much improved mobility and strength. She definitely hasn't let any of these obstacles slow her down and despite them remains active (see video). She does get a little vocal when the other dogs bump into her or stomp on by, but she shakes it off and continues to hop around and explore the yard. Rather than running through life she stops to smell the roses a little more often. She seems to live her life with joy and acts like she doesn't have a handicap at all!
