Goldie came into the Nowzad shelter in August 2011 along with her family of 10 pups and her husband, Beethoven. Nowzad had been taking care of the medical needs of the dogs whilst they lived on the base but then we received a call one night to say they could not stay on base and we needed to get the 12 strong family out!
We got them all to the shelter and one by one all of the pups found homes with Afghan families and in the West and Beethoven went off to a new life in America but Goldie remained with us.
In March 2012 Jim contacted us about adopting another dog to join Spin who we had already rescued from Afghanistan. We spoke to Jim and his family and established who would be a good match and in April 2012 Goldie got her lucky break and headed off to Colorado for a new life with Spin.
Goldie adores her new life and behaves like she always lived in America.
