Happy Gotcha day Mr. Darcy & Elizabeth!
MEET ELIZABETH!! Elizabeth is a pretty female golden retriever/spaniel mix, around 5-6 years old. She came in with Mr. Darcy, after they were surrendered to a kill shelter following a citation for a case of neglect. Elizabeth was very underweight, extremely heartworm positive, and very pregnant, but unfortunately the stress and poor body condition caused her to lose her puppies prematurely.

We believe Darcy was the father of the puppies, despite his young age. He and Elizabeth are very bonded, and as such they must be adopted out together.
Elizabeth is a gentle, sweet soul. She and Darcy haven’t gotten the most socialization in their past, and with all the recent changes in their lives, it is understandable that they are both pretty scared. They’ve been with LFS for about a week now, and they’ve both already made great improvement! They both look more happy and comfortable, and they are learning how to walk on the leash better. Darcy still follows Elizabeth around some, and we think she helps give him more confidence. Elizabeth is a little bit braver than her male friend. We are confident that with some patience and TLC, both dogs will blossom into wonderful, happy pups.
Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy seem to get along fine with other dogs. They would likely do best in a home with older children, as loud and sudden movements scare them. We are not sure how they are around cats.
DARCY AND ELIZABETH NEED A FOSTER HOME!! Because they are a bonded pair, they must go together!! If you would like to foster Darcy and Elizabeth together, please go to https://www.labradorfriends.com/foster-2/ to fill out a foster application or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are already an approved foster.
We are still in need of donations to help cover the cost of Elizabeth’s emergency surgery and vetting, as well as Darcy’s neuter and vetting. If you’d be able to and would like to contribute to their care, please go to https://www.labradorfriends.com/donate-2/ to do so. THANK YOU!!!
