Our beautiful cover girl, Skye, was a breeder throwaway, due to an injured leg. In the last few months, CGRR has received 2 pups from the Utah County area – both came in at 4 months old, and both had an “old” injury to one of their back legs. Don’t know if this is a coincidence, or if these pups were from the same breeder, but it is very concerning. Beau, our redheaded boy, had an old fracture, and thanks to the support from many of you – had the surgery needed, as well as physical therapy and is in his forever home. Skye, had an “old” injury to her right rear leg – but hers was worse. She has some angular limb deformities, soft tissue swelling, the patella is out of place, plus the growth plate near the knee is partially closed. It has been a hectic month, but after a few appts, Xrays of both legs to compare, and opinions from 3 different radiologists, it was decided to let Skye grow a bit more, and do physical therapy to help strengthen her leg. Dr. Boekhout at Blue Pearl is going to check her every couple of weeks to see how she is doing. She will need surgery down the road, but it would be better to wait until she is grown. Dr. Boekhout has been great – she is very thorough and wants the best for Skye. Everyone at the clinic was very taken with Skye, including one of the other doctors – who decided to adopt her! We could not be more excited, as this girl now has the family she deserves, plus it is a comfort to us, knowing she will get the care she needs. We did purchase a physical therapy package, to help Skye get off to a good start! Our sincere thanks to Dr. Boekhout and staff at Blue Pearl for taking such great care of this girl. Skye’s medical so far has been around $700. If you would like to donate, to help with some of the medical expense for Skye, we would greatly appreciate it. Donations can be sent to CGRR, P.O.

We will no longer be at The Dogs Meow once a month. They have done some remodeling to enlarge the store. They are big supporters of rescue, and have helped several different rescue groups…… and we appreciate them very much! We will probably have a donation box and our info up there, so be sure to remember the Goldens when you are in there shopping for your pooches! You can also purchase a gift card for the Goldies.

We will miss seeing many of you that came to visit us. Thanks so much for your support!
