Here is Sharon Wickie's story of her Golden Rescue treasure, Riley.
This is Riley. He is a very special pup and at just
four months pf age, had already become an angel sent from heaven. We
adopted Riley from
Freedom Rescue in Denver, Colorado at three months of age.
He had a
fracture in his front left leg and a big bump on his head. He apparently
had gone through quite a bit in those first few months he was born
He was a joy to have and took his
medication, played and ate like a normal pup.
Two weeks after we had him, he became very very sick and so we took him to
the Vet and found out that he had Parvo and would probably not survive. To make
a long story short, we almost lost him─but at the 12th
hour, financial assistance came through (from the Rescue) and he was transferred
to a 24 hour care facility and was kept there for seven days.
In order to bring him back home, we had to Clorox the entire
house inside and out along with the neighbors front/back yards.
Thankfully and with a lot of prayers, we were able to bring him back home. For
the next month he was quarantined to his crate, but he made it through once
again and now is an active, healthy pup! He is a miracle twice over and the love
of our lives.
