5 years old
Golden Retriever Mix
This lovely lady is Apple, a 5 year old golden mix who came to us from Turkey. Our rescuers believe she was dumped in a neighborhood outside of Istanbul after the owners discovered a growth on her side. She ended up following everyone around, searching for her family. Our rescuers were notified about her and took her to the vet to have her checked out. They had the growth removed, which turned out to be only a fatty tumor! Once she healed from the surgery she came to the US and is ready to find her forever family.
Apple is a ‘people dog’, she loves being with her people. She enjoys outings like going on walks and car rides. She is also happy just hanging out with you! She is a great companion, and wants to be by your side...ideally getting scratches and belly rubs. She has been a very easy houseguest and has good house manners. While in foster care in Turkey she was fed a lot of human food, so her current foster mom is working to break that habit. Apple does have a bit of a stubborn streak, as many dogs do.
Apple would prefer if her humans were home most of the time, and if she could nap on your sofa and sleep in bed with you. She gets along fine with other dogs, and would do fine with a doggie sibling, but definitely prefers her humans. She does bark at cats, so a home without those would be preferred.
Apple does have hip dysplasia on her right side, so she is getting a daily glucosamine supplement. She does well with shorter walks, and really enjoys them. With regular daily exercise and continued glucosamine supplements she may never need more than that.
