I currently own three dogs from Ragom. Finnegan was adopted in 2006. Jackson is a red lab, he was tied to a shelter gate in Iowa before Christmas 2013 along with another dog. And now Skye 18-109. She is from a breeding situation.
The photo shows my four dogs (left to right) Jackson, Finnegan, Will (in back) and Skye. Will is not from RAGOM.
While none of my dogs cost Ragom much money, an earlier foster dog cost them a small fortune. I had Liberty 13-231 for two years. She came from a mill and had four large tumors that needed to be removed. She also needed to be spayed. The tumors were too big to be removed in one surgery, so she had two surgeries that first year....one removed the two largest tumors, and the next one removed the other two tumors and spayed her. She also had ear infections that took three doses of medication to get rid of. She wasn't adopted because of her lack of socialization so when we went back the next year, she had more mammary tumors that needed to be removed. She was just adopted after almost two years in foster care. My latest foster was a Great Pyr mixed with Golden Retriever. He was a roamer and a barker, but otherwise he was a very nice dog. He needed to be neutered and he needed a rather extensive dental. I found the perfect home for him, no fence, since no fence could contain him, and no real close neighbors to be bothered by the barking.
