Meet Leo!

Leo was found tied up in a homeless encampment. Initially, he was very fearful but with time and love, he has settled in nicely and is enjoying life in his foster home. Leo was diagnosed with Laryngeal Paralysis which is a condition where a dog's windpipe fails to open correctly when breathing in. Rather than opening as it should, the sides of the windpipe are sucked into the opening. In severe cases, laryngeal paralysis can lead to suffocation, but treatment is available if caught early. Leo had a corrective surgery which was successful and he has recovered beautifully. And, we have seen a marked improvement in his energy level.

Leo is ready for adoption!

The Shamrock Circle

The Shamrock Circle Fund was established in 2003 by a gracious adopter to fund extraordinary medical and emergency expenses for purebred Golden Retrievers.

Through this fund, we are able to help the neediest Goldens: the sick, the injured, the severely abused and the elderly.


Shamrock donors make monthly pledges for which every dollar donated to this fund is spent only on these special needs Goldens.

Join the Shamrock Circle today by signing up for monthly donations or make a one-time donation.
