Ben , another goldy

Ben is looking for a new family after being abandonned by the side of the road. :sad: He is a neutered male , between 8 and 10. He does have difficulty to get back up and go up stairs , he is getting better at it. But has no problem walking and even started running after the ball , always asking me to throw it for him. He is a typical golden : extremely loving , always happy and ... food motivated he is great with cats and dogs. He will be going to the vet next week for lump check and x-rays so we will know more about his condition.

He had to be shaved due to having been neglected , either way , he's the cutest thing , looks just like a puppy , don't you think ?

Ben spent the day at the vet and we were all surprise by the results . All the staff tought something was wrong with Ben's hips. But no !!! Everything is fine ! They did x-rays and didn't see anything wrong . Ben simply has no muscles in his hind legs , we think maybe because he could have been tied up in a backyard all his life. So he needs exercise , small amount at a time. And his lumps , all fatty ones !!! So only good news for Ben today !

But what absolutely wonderful news!

bump bump , Ben is officialy up for adoption (he will be on our website soon : www.goldenrescuequebec.com ) and he's doing better and better. He doesn't need my help anymore to come up the 3 stairs from the solarium , he rarely needs my help to get up when on slippery floors (ceramic) and he is 100% on carpet or grass.
He wants to play more and more outside , fetch his ball / Cuz like any other dog even tries to catch Nelly , but she runs a bit too fast for him but he looooves steeling her Cuz , when left unattended for a few seconds. He is too funny , a real sweetheart.

If you know anyone who doesn't want to adopt a puppy , but would like to give a good retirement home for this guy , take small evening walks , please contact me.

Ben

That is excellent news about Ben. I really didn't think he had much of a future because he had so much trouble walking. I can attest to the fact that he is a real sweetheart and has such a funny character. For an old guy he still loves to play with toys. When he was here he would empty the toy basket everyday. He especially loves balls and will play fetch all by himself. He throws it and then goes and retrieves it, too funny.

I have to say, I was really lucky to have met this handsome fello.
Age, what age, this dog has more energy than my lazy Harley.
He is the sweetest little guy, with lots of love to give.
Frenchy, you have done a great job with him, regaining his stamina, and it greatly shows.
I hope he finds his forever home soon, such a doll.

Oh, gee - only 6 hours away... well, the ocean is about 6 minutes away for me (driving) and one forest walk is about 10 minutes away - walking... and, here's the clincher - there are no stoplights downtown

JanM, you could pick up Ben and move to Wawa - Molly would love some golden friends, we have Lake Superior (ocean like but NO SALT!), all the forest walks you could dream about right at our door step and NO STOP LIGHTS AT ALL, closest one is 3 hours drive!

Hmmmm, fleas not much of a problem if you have chickens (and I can lend you a few) and global warming is taking care of that snow problem

Soooooo, how about we go pick up Ben and deliver him to Ladysmith? I've always loved the west coast!!

WOW - what a wonderful idea.... I know they don't ship dogs out of province but, hmmm, pick-up eh.... something to think about for sure and now I'll have to think about it until the snow that has fallen in the mountain passes on the mainland has melted! That darn stuff
