Let’s Help Goliath Find a Home! Pet Adoption of the Day #AdoptDon’tShop
***EDITED GOLIATH GOT ADOPTED*** YAHOOOOOOOOOO
PHOENIX, AZ: 14 year old Goliath is fittingly named for his enormous ability to love. It’s high-intake season at the shelter and Goliath is currently the oldest adoptable dog on site. He’s a bit worried that nobody will choose him from crowd. In the past six months, Goliath has been in and out of the shelter twice. He just wants a bit of stability for the last few chapters of his life and he’ll pay you back in loads of love and smiles! PLEASE SHARE!
If you’re not going to have a pet be indoors with you the majority of the time, give it lots of love, prepared to pay vet bills in an emergency and make a life time commitment then a pet is not for you. This is something we are passionate about and really want to get the message across to adopt not shop and that it’s a lifetime commitment of love!Information from Goliath’s Adoption Post

Goliath absolutely broke my heart. At 14 years old, Goliath is currently our oldest adoptable pet at the West Valley shelter. We first met him back in January, when he came to the shelter as a stray. We discovered that Goliath was lost during a tragic house fire, in which his owner lost everything. We were able to locate the owner and return Goliath to her. In May, Goliath came to us again, this time surrendered by a family member of his owner. Multiple attempts to locate Goliath’s owner have been unsuccessful and all numbers are disconnected. We aren’t sure what happened, but we do know that Goliath is very sad here and deserves to live out the rest of his life in a loving and comfortable home.
Goliath doesn’t ask for much- a short walk, some treats, love and a soft bed. He has done well with dogs he’s met here at the shelter and wouldn’t mind sharing his new home with a fur sibling. We don’t know if Goliath has a month left, or a year left, but we DO know that time shouldn’t be spent here at the shelter. Can YOU be Goliath’s final and true forever?”
