Meet Ori!

Ori’s a pretty little thing who came to rescue from an Inland Empire shelter with a badly broken leg requiring bone surgery to repair. As their vets were evaluating her for the procedure, they also discovered she has a pretty severe heart murmur due to a congenital defect called sub-aortic stenosis (SAS); this is all-too-common in her breed! Sadly, Ori’s life is expected to be shortened because of this, but since she doesn’t know she’s as happy and care-free as a Golden girl can be.

Ori’s looking for a place where she can spend the next few holidays with a loving family and enjoy life in the same style as all her other Golden friends. Ori is a permanent foster of GRCGLARescue, which means they'll continue to be responsible for her medical expenses for life. But Ori would like a home where she gets human company most of the time, and where there is another happy, friendly dog about her own age, size and play style to wrestle with.

We met Ori through the Golden Retriever Club of Greater Los Angeles Rescue in Los Angeles, California. The Golden Retriever Club of Greater Los Angeles Rescue was incorporated as a tax exempt 501c(3), charitable foundation in 2001, but they've been in informal operation for many years, making them the oldest Golden Retriever rescue organization in continuous operation in southern California.
