Barbie, an adorable 4.5 year old Golden Doodle, is looking for a very special home where she will receive all the love, care and attention she's missed out on her entire life. Barbie, along with 58 other dogs, lived a life that none of us would want a dog to endure. She came from a puppy mill where she and many others were treated like machines to produce puppies. They all lived in small filthy cages and never had freedom to run or play. Before coming to GRRR, Barbie had never experienced the joy of playing on the grass, cuddling on the couch or even eating quality food.
The many animals at the puppy mill were seized by the authorities and taken to an animal shelter to receive the first love and care they've ever known. There was a 3 month hold at the shelter while legal issues were being sorted out. During that time, Barbie delivered yet another litter of sweet puppies. After giving birth many times in the past, this was the first time she was surrounded by loving, helpful people who were there to comfort her and provide kindness and medical treatment for her and her new babies. Barbie also underwent emergency surgery for a life threatening mastitis infection which required urgent care. Clearly, her life up until now has been heartbreaking and something this precious girl should never have endured.
Barbie is now looking for a family that can give her all the love and care she's missed out on in the past. She is a very social, loving and sweet girl who gets along with the other dogs in her foster home. Our very special girl would like a home where she will have the companionship of another dog to help introduce her to the comforts of having a real home and being a loved family member.
