HI, I’m Fort. I’m a 5-year old Golden mix. I was a stray and found myself in a local animal shelter. I am just a happy guy loving guy that loves meeting new people. I’m good with most older calm children, 8-years of age and older. I am good with other dogs and even cats. I walk well on leash, enjoy car rides, and am housebroken. I do not like the crate though and even hurt my nose when I was put in one, ouch! And I am so smart – I know ‘sit’, ‘lay down’, ‘out’, ‘come’, and ‘no’. Impressive, huh? I would prefer a fenced yard so I can explore and play on my own and a furever family or individual who has had previous experience owning dogs.
Now for the bad news! I have severe allergies that cause me to have chronic ear infections. My ears hurt and they got so bad that I can not hear much. GRRA took me to a doggie doctor that specializes in allergies and she said the best thing for me would be a surgery to remove the infected ear canals. Don't feel too bad for me though. I will still be able to hear vibrations and some voices but I won't have pain. I will still have to take allergy medicine, but that will help keep them under control. My foster family has also been working with me on understanding hand signals so we can communicate better.
GRRA has already spent about $1,300 on getting me better with tests, medicine, more tests, more medicine, etc. My surgery is going to cost another $2,800. GRRA said they will do whatever it takes, even if that means they need to raise $4,100 for me.
If you could help me out with a few dollars, I would be very greatful. My surgery is going to be 12/19/2019 so I can be better by Christmas. Thank you and Merry Christmas. I hope I get some new toys and a Furever Family.
