GOLDEN RESCUE

Sadie is 14 years old and thinks she is half her age, and has the great report from the vet to back it up. She does have a slight limp in the back leg due to an earlier injury, but still loves to go for walks, chase toys and balls. She's good with other dogs, but best without cats, young children, or stairs. Sadie rides well in cars. She's a real sweetheart and a great companion who just wants to be by her favorite people in her forever home.
