The mystery of how Goldie the dog found himself in a town in Texas is a great one, as well as his origins, but what is known is those days were not great for him. A group of local dogs attacked him, causing major injuries both physical and psychological. So much that when rescuers came to get him from under the mobile home he hid under, he wouldn’t let anyone touch him and the labor turned quite difficult.
However, they eventually managed to get him to Corsicana Animal Shelter in Texas, where they realized he needed urgent medical care. He was taken to a vet by people from the Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, where his life was saved. The road to recovery proved long for Goldie, as he had to stay two weeks at the vet that saved him and after being moved to New York City, he had to stay another two weeks with another vet to see him through recovery and all efforts made for him proved right after the cute pooch gained his strength back and became the most loving dog ever.
He was up for adoption for a while and nobody came along, until one of the people from Rescue Dogs NYC and his girlfriend took him into their family. They re-named Goldie as Dakota and despite his rough past, he’s the most loving pooch anyone could imagine.
