My name is Gus and I am now 10 1/2 yo old after being in rescue since July. I have some updated pictures so check me out. I am your typical golden. Love people, kids, dogs and cats. I am happiest when I am with my people and love going on adventurers. In a car and I will go with you anywhere. When I came into rescue, I was a mess. I am allergic to fleas and other environmental elements. I have been on some great tasty grain free food and treated for fleas monthly with Simparica. NGRR has continued to treat me with fungal and steroid medications and weekly baths. I look and feel so much better. Let’s talk about my special needs: I was also diagnosed with KCS, keratoconjunctivitis sicca, or dry eye in the right eye. I will need to continue with the Optimmune and artificial tears. Optimmune costs approx. $34 and last 2-3 months. They keep trying to get me off the steroids and fungal medications but then I get itchy. The ketoconazole (fungal) is $48.00 a month and the Prednisone is $45 every 2 months. My medical could be $1,000 a year. I will need a loving home prepared to manage a golden retriever with chronic skin and eye issues

My name is Gus. I have some updated pictures. I am your typical golden. Love people, kids, dogs and cats. I am happiest when I am with my people and love going on adventurers. Put me in a car and I will go with you anywhere. When I came into rescue, I was a mess. I am allergic to fleas and other environmental elements. I have been on some great tasty grain free food and treated for fleas monthly with Simparica. NGRR has started me on Apoquel allergy medication along with twice weekly baths. If we do not see a significant improvement, then they will try an injectable allergy medication. I am beginning to respond and feel much better. Apoquel costs approx. $200 for 100 tablets I was also diagnosed with KCS, keratoconjunctivitis sicca, or dry eye in the right eye. I will need to continue with the Optimmune and artificial tears. Optimmune costs approx. $34. I truly am a great boy with some special needs. I will need a loving home prepared to manage a golden retriever with chronic skin, eye and ear issues.

Gus is your typical golden. Just wants to be part of the family and go whereever you are going. Loves his car rides, walks and playing ball. He is doing well with his foster families kitty with proper introduction. He will need some much needed TLC as he recovers from ears, eyes and skin issues left unattended.
