Golden Retriever / Poodle (Miniature) / Mixed (medium coat) : : Male : : Senior
22-059 Artar is a 9-year-old black miniature Goldendoodle. His owner was staying in an assisted-living facility that allowed dogs but had to move to another that did not. At one of our designated veterinary offices, Artar had the standard work-up done – vaccines and tests for valley fever and heartworm (both negative) . He also received a very necessary grooming – most Goldendoodles need one every 6-8 weeks. After he was moved to foster with Chris, he had a dental done – needed 21 teeth extracted and his gums cleaned up. He was ready to go to a permanent home, but as is the case with most senior dogs, Placement had to call many potential families before they found just the right one with an adopter and his daughter who live in Snowflake. The vet they use in Taylor checked out Artar and said he was healing fine from the dental and was healthy. No charge for the visit, which was very nice . About a month later, Artar developed a cough and was seen by the that same vet again . Art , as he i s now called, had a respiratory issue and was given medication . Art settled in well with the adopter, his daughter, and the large cat they have . When one of our AGR members called and asked how everything was going, the adopter said:
Art is wonderful. He is doing great and has gained a little weight. He sleeps with me or my daughter and loves to cuddle. He is a good doorbell and gets along with everyone. I would love to have another one just like him.
Once again, it has been shown that older dogs make wonderful companions!
