Needs to have a fenced environment and would benefit from obedience training.
Cadie is a relinquishment. Our transport gal said while this cream colored pup is timid and insecure, she is very sweet. She received a thorough exam. Our vet partner also x-rayed her rear legs as she had trouble sustaining weight on them. Due to their findings, Cadie will see an ortho specialist.

Cadie is getting close to being medically cleared. She is continuing with her rehabilitation on her back left leg, which will need to be continued by a potential adopter. Cadie is getting a leg massage with heat prior to her walks and ice packs with a massage to cool down after her walks. She is going on short, slow walks 3-4 times a day to ensure that she is using that back left leg and not hopping. This is a work in progress and she gets better everyday. Cadie is very loving and seeks out attention from her humans. She loves being with other dogs and would love a furry sibling in her furever home. Cadie's expenses are significant, so please consider making a donation to help offset her expenses.
Cadie went for her 2 week follow up appointment recently and unfortunately the specialist indicated she has significantly decreased range of motion in her left knee/leg. She is at 10-15% and should be at 100-110%. WOW! That is a HUGE difference. This was a disappointing blow to our GRIN family to hear. We are hoping that she will make some improvements over the next few weeks. At this time Cadie is still on crate restriction, getting therapy 3 times a day & ice packs 2-3 times a day depending on the swelling to assist with her recovery. Cadie has a long way to go before GRIN would consider her adoptable. We are optimistic that she will make the progress that is needed & be able to stand & possibly run some day. Cadie's current medical costs are over $8,500.00 & she is not done with all her medical care. Please consider helping with her medical costs & donate on behalf of sweet Cadie!

Miss Cadie is a beautiful-super-sweet English Cream Retriever and has been in our care for 4 months awaiting surgery on her leg. Her back left leg had an old injury that had healed itself, but healed incorrectly and needed extensive work. Due to COVID-19 all surgeries were put on hold, except emergencies only. Now that some of the COVID-19 restrictions have been reduced, Miss Cadie was able to have a very extensive & delicate surgery on June 11th. Cadie's surgery took over 4 hours and she came through like a champ. She is resting comfortably and quietly in her crate as she is on strict crate rest for the next 8 weeks with leashed potty breaks. Cadie's wonderful Doctor stated that her leg will never be normal, but felt that Cadie will be able to stand and possibly run. She has a long way to go, but she is a very determined puppy! We will be following up with her progress, please stay tuned..

Cadie is a gentle and loving puppy. She has an expressive face and affectionate personality. She loves belly rubs and ear scratches. She’s working on potty-training and learning quickly. She loves every single person that she has ever met.

Cadie is very, very sweet. She’s timid with people at first, but super friendly once she realizes that a person is safe. She is starting to understand potty training, but no where near perfect yet. She wants to be by your side at ALL times!
She can do ‘sit’ for a treat, but no other tricks just yet, as potty training is the main focus at this time.
She’s is very smart and curious. Cadie loves other dogs. Cadie has a lot of energy, but is also very gentle.

Cadie is an adorable and easy-going puppy. She’s timid with new humans and really good with other dogs. She has a bad leg, but she does NOT let it slow her down. She LOVES her foster brother (a chocolate lab) and she won’t leave his side. She really enjoys soft toys and carries her ducky with her everywhere. She would be great for a family with kids!!!
