Loving Life in my Forever Home!GABE1

GabeTeam Gabe (the GoldHeart Board, and 4 foster homes) are thrilled to report that this adorable and loving boy, who will be turning one in June, is now in hisIMG_6248 IMG_6250perfect home. We have to pinch ourselves again and again…yes homes like this really do exist!  Team Gabe is simply over the moon and so thankful for his awesome forever family who dedicate their lives to care for special needs – seizure disorder – Goldens. Gabe has a huge fenced yard and 5-older golden fur-siblings to play with (and yes everyone plays with him!) Here is Gabe meeting some of his family and recently snuggling with one of his brothers (Bailey).

Gabe’s expenses for testing and other vetting have exceeded $3,500. Any tax-deductible donation towards GoldHeart expenses will help ensure we can continue to help other incoming dogs in need of more extensive medical care.  https://goldheart.org/about-goldheart/make-a-donation/

Thank you from Gabe, to the GoldHeart Board, his vets, and to all the homes that helped care for this super sweet boy, and for ensuring safe passage to his wonderful forever home!

Gabe’s Back story – This young guy was surrendered to GoldHeart in January as a result of seizures that occurred in October, November and December 2016. He was adopted from his first GH foster home in early March and while his first foster home did not witness any seizures since arrival, he had three major seizures in his hopeful GoldHeart forever home.  He was started on two seizure preventatives. While a vigorous search was initiated to determine if there was a physiological reason for the seizures when first brought into GoldHeart, all  all of Gabe’s  tests came back normal. With heavy hearts, Gabe – Adopters decided to turn him back over to GoldHeart so that he can see a neurologist and get further testing, and he was cared for in two additional foster homes until he could be moved to his forever home.  Gabe was diagnosed with communicating hydrocephalus, and the hope is his seizures can be controlled with medication, and to date, that seems to be the case. He is otherwise healthy. He rides really well in a car and is no problem to walk. He gets along with both canine and feline siblings. His activity level is now reported to be at the moderate level and he is a typical puppy. He loves to play, but when he is tired, he enjoys being a couch potato.
