Thank you for all of your support! Let these pictures tell the stories of the great work that was able to be done at GFA….
Roxxie, 13 years old, Dalmation mix
Roxxie came to GFA to live with her FURever foster on the day before Christmas Eve 2019. The cardiac vet said if she was a human, she would be on a heart and lung transplant list. When they xrayed her, they found that she carries 2 bullets in her from long ago – one in her shoulder and one in her hip. She had a permanent slash scar on her face from someone that didn’t treat her well. She takes 22 pills daily of 6 different medicines which have given her a new quality of life. She no longer retains excessive fluids on her abdomen or horrendously coughs. ( She had 8 ½ liters of fluid drained at ther last vet visit before her dosages were upped.) You would never know that she wasn’t treated kindly her whole life, because she is such a love bug and shadow dog. She follows me EVERYWHERE in the house. She has two siblings here – a senior lab and senior beagle, and they are my trio of golden girls. She loves to go on walks and dart after squirrels in the back yard. We do short walks which is just their speed. When she was first vetted, they thought she might have 6 months, but the meds have revived her and she is such a happy, loving girl!
Lamby, 10 years old, Maltese mix
Missy, 14 years old, pitbull mix
Camille, 16 years old, shepard mix
We knew Camille was a German Shepherd mix. I had her groomed recently and the groomer said she has a lot of Rottweiler traits. She’s a sweet girl and I consider her to be GFA’s unofficial Energizer Bunny. 16 and still going!
