Hi everyone…my name is Steffi and I’m an 8-year-old girl. When I landed at my foster family’s home, I was quite a mess ~ nervous, dirty, long nails, with a bad ear infection. Today, I’m all cleaned up and my nervousness is gone and the doc is working on my ear, which is now healing but still needs a bit of attention. I am so grateful to my amazing foster family ~ they are simply the best and I now know that everyone I meet only wants the best for me. That’s why I absolutely adore all you humans. Dogs, on the other hand, are a different matter…particularly big dogs. I don’t know why, but I get aggressive when I meet most other big dogs. We’re working on this but we haven’t succeeded yet. My foster mom says that’s my only foible. Other than that, she says I’m a sweet, loving, beautiful Golden. I loved to hear that. I love the great outdoors ~ rain, snow, sun or cloud, I just love hanging out in my backyard. I also love my car rides and playing basketball with the local kids. I might even be getting a try-out for the Raptors (teehee). I am not a big barker. You can leave me alone if you have to go out without me. You can certainly touch me anywhere. I am gentle with my treats and loud noises don’t bother me. Other than my ear, the doc says I’m healthy. Yes, life is good and my fosters think I’m ready to join my forever family…as long as it’s a family without any other pets with a secure backyard for me to hang out in. Holy moly, that is SOOO exciting. I really hope to meet you soon. I have no real wishes although an old basketball hoop and ball wouldn’t go amiss.

Steffi is currently being fostered in the Toronto, ON area. If you would like more information about Steffi call our hotline toll-free at 1-866-712-8444 or email and one of our volunteers will be happy to return your call.
