Breed: Golden Retriever Blend

Weight: 47 lbs.

Status: Medical Hold



Update: October 1, 2019

Garnet was very sick in her stomach and wasn’t feeling well last week. Her devoted foster dad took her to the doctor to be examined and it appears that our sweet girl picked up a bug and had to be given an IV, antibiotics and anti-nausea medication. It isn’t easy overcoming additional viruses when you are being treated for heartworm, that is hard enough on her system. Garnet is a strong girl, she took her meds, got some rest and she is feeling much better.

Even though Garnet has some restrictions due to her heartworm treatment, her foster dad reports that she loves to play and is a great playmate with other dogs.  Gentle and submissive Garnet, just wants to be friends with everyone. Her golden traits come through as a velcro dog that wants to be with her foster dad wherever he goes.  Garnet feels safe and loved in her new environment and she is showing more confidence in her daily routines and interactions; she loves being close and getting attention. 

Car rides are not her favorite thing, but she adjusts to them by facing her foster dad and falling asleep. The comfort of having him near her sure does seem to be what she needs and enjoys. 

Garnet is a real leader, it seems she likes being in the drivers seat when it comes to her walks and will take objection by laying down if you try to take her in a direction she doesn’t want to go.  She does give in to her foster dad when it comes to learning basic commands, she has already mastered sit and shake (with both paws)-keep up the good work Garnet!

Garnet is a precious name for a precious dog.  Please continue to support her medical needs so she can be free of heartworm and be warming someone’s heart in her forever home. It sure would be “cool” to be healthy and playing with her new family. This little golden lassie just wants to come home and your generous help is her future.   

A beautiful blend of Golden Retriever and Collie, this sweet southern belle originally hails from Louisiana and found her way to GRRMF because her owner would no longer take care of her.

Garnet had us at “hello” when we first met her, because she slowly walked out and put her paw on in our volunteer’s lap asking if she could cuddle. When you sit with her, she tries to curl up in your lap and get cozy. Her foster dad said she was very timid at but is so very sweet and precious.  She wags her tail and loves to be loved and was so happy to be in her foster home, that she curled up on the rug by his bed for the entire evening.  She felt safe at last!

Unfortunately, this southern princess tested heartworm positive so she has begun her medical treatment and cannot do a lot of running around.  She needs some time to heal and feel better, not to mention gain a few pounds.  She enjoys very short walks, as she’s a bit tired right now from her medicine. GRRMF and her foster dad are going to take special care of Garnet to get her ready for her forever home.

Garnet just adores all of her toys!  She has a new favorite toy each day probably because her kind foster dad keeps buying them for her. She loves belly rubs and being pet and feels so comfy when her foster dad talks with her. She has learned to sit for treats. This smart girl is very neat and tidy! Anything her foster dad leaves around, like a shoe or hat she’ll pick it up and put it away right where she sleeps. She doesn’t seem to chew on anything left out, but seems to enjoy having a pile of “stuff” where she sleeps!  It makes her feel safe, needed and loved!  She follows her foster dad everywhere, but likes to sleep on the floor. She never jumps on the couch and now seems to prefer to sleep in the living room. She doesn’t bark when someone knocks on the door and is great with strangers. Garnet is happy to meet new people and dogs.  Her foster dad is teaching her to shake!

Perfect in so many ways, we just need to surround her with love and help her recover with medicine for being heartworm positive. These treatments are very expensive, but we believe this girl is worth every penny and more to have a chance at a much better life, with someone who will cherish her and make her feel wanted and safe forever.  If you can help us with any financial support for her treatment, you can help her recover with her foster dad, to be the beautiful Garnet jewel that we know she can be and help her find her new for always home.

Make sure you catch the sweet kiss that she blows your way when you make your donation today.
