Goldie is a 14 year old Shiba who has a bit of a sad story. Her former owner passed away and this senior girl needs a new home. She is currently being fostered on Gabriola Island.
Goldie’s foster mom says she is quiet, obedient (can’t be a Shiba, then!) and somewhat territorial in her own yard (okay, she could be a Shiba). She is friendly elsewhere, so, for a Shiba, she’s a saint.
Despite being well into her senior years, Goldie is in excellent health. She does need her teeth cleaned and requires daily exercise. Like most Shibas, Goldie will make a break for it if given the opportunity. She is 20 lbs.
Goldie eats 2/3 cup of kibble a day, along with apples, carrots and the occasional water-packed sardine. Her foster mom will assist with backup care for Gabriola Island owners in case they need to leave the island for extended periods.
