-Dorothy and Rose-
The Golden Girls
Age: approximately - Rose 16 years,
Dorothy 18 years
Weight: 7lbs Dorothy; 8.5 lbs
Dorothy and Rose are senior girls that
were surrendered in one of our Oregon
shelters together with the loss of the
mom and decline in health of their dad.
They were in pretty rough shape when
they got to us and are doing great under
the care of Adria. The following
notes are from Adira "Dorothy is very
sweet, likes to be cuddled. She is
partially blind, but gets around very
well. She has a healthy appetite
and knows exactly where her potty pads
are. She know how to go outside
and potty on command. She does not
seem to have any health concerns other
than the partial blindness and some old
age mobility aches and pains.
Rosie who is a bit bigger and younger.
She is a lot more adventurous and enjoys
wandering around the yard finding every
water feature, She has a great
appetite and follows around the house.
she is going up and down the stairs and
knows how to potty outside and does a
pretty good job finding her potty pads."
09/15 update from Adria -
"The golden girls are both adjusting to
life as fosters and are doing great.
Dorothy, Goosie to me, is the slightly
older girl, blind in one eye and
toothless, gets around very well.
She eats well and continues to be in
good health, other than a slight eye
infection which we have her on meds for.
The doc guesses her to be around 14
rather than the initial shelter guess of
18. she is super sweet and
affectionate. She doesn't mind
going for car rides and walks on a leash
Rose, sweetie as I call her, continues
to be the adventurous one. She
enjoys wandering around the back yard
and knows our routine very well.
She runs up and down the stair and trots
around the house very well.
I would guess her to be 12 or 13, rather
than the 16 year shelter guess.
starting to look like real poodles now
that their hair is coming in. they
are super fluffy and very cute.
The are both really sweet dogs and a joy
to be around. They get along with
the other dogs very well and love to

those who are adopting a dog for the
first time. Many people who inquire
about adopting a dog just aren't
ready to do so. By no fault of their

they adopt a dog they can't handle

on. This book is being offered as a
