Candidate #10; Goliath
Hello, my name is Goliath but my close friends like to call me GoGo. I would be honored to be your next PAWlitical Mayor. Like many of my friends, my story began on the streets of Salt Lake City. I was one nervous guy when I first came into the Salt Lake Country Animal Shelter, but the kind people there immediately helped me to start learning to be more comfortable and showed me that people were there to give me tasty treats. Some of my shelter friends told me that big, black dogs sometimes had a more difficult time finding a home...especially if they were like me and thought they still had to bark at people behind a fence. But my friends at the shelter did not give up...they contacted Arctic Rescue to see if they could continue to show everyone what a wonderful, loving boy I am. Now, six months later my favorite things to do include giving big, bear hugs, going on hikes, playing with toys and sitting on peoples laps...I still sometimes enjoy a bark or two at new people (especially if they are named David:-)
I would make a wonderful mayor and a great example of what can happen when big guys like me are given a chance to show people what I am really made of... sugar and spice and everything nice.
Every dollar raised by Goliath’s campaign will go into the Injured Animal Fund. Help homeless animals heal so they can find a HOME!
