GoldHeart Golden Retriever Rescue’s Pets of the Week are Maggie (GH-599), left, and Mikia (GH-600), right. They
are 10-year-old littermates (brother and sister) who suddenly found
themselves homeless when their owner died.
Maggie and Mikia have been
together all their life and only ever knew one home until they were taken
from that home very scared and confused and put into a foster home.
Both are adjusting to their new surroundings. They get
along well with their foster brother and sister, and even think the cats are
They like to lie in the sun on the deck, and will stay by
your side like they are glued to you.
They have gotten a clean bill of health from the vet except for one thing —
they are both overweight. Maggie weighed in at 141 pounds and
Mikia was 167 pounds. Yes, they are large, but that’s more to love and they
have a lot of love to give. They are on a very strict diet and should be
exercised a couple times a day.
The rescue’s main goal is to keep this brother and sister together, since they are
very bonded and already faced the tragedy of losing their human mom a few weeks ago.
If you have room in your heart for two very large — but very loving — four-legged
friends, these two will fill the bill.
