Calls are pouring into the Humane Society of North Iowa with offers to adopt an abandoned dog that ate her own tail to survive.
Calls to take Goldie home have come from as far away as Australia. Humane Society officials also say many people have donated money on behalf of the golden retriever.
Applications for adoption are being accepted through the end of the week. Officials will then make a decision on a new owner.
The newspaper reports Goldie was badly abused when she was discovered along with several dogs at an apartment in Forest City. The other dogs now have new owners.
