Romo – Male  – 11-years-old – GRRALL #0759 – AVAILABLE NOW

Romo is a lucky boy; his human Mom is sick and has entrusted GRRALL to find him a new home before she is unable to care for him.  Romo’s family has loved and cared for him since he was a 12 week old/12 pound golden puppy.  Romo is 11 years old now, 67 pounds, and has seen the same vet his entire life.  Handsome Romo is great with other dogs, cats, and kids.  He is your typical goofy golden boy.  Romo has settled into his foster home and enjoys being around other goldens, including several of our GRRALL permanent foster dogs.   Romo misses his family but knows their priority was his well-being and happiness; we look forward to finding a new permanent home for our boy and wish his Mom and family the best during the next chapter of their lives.

Maggie – Female – 4-years-old – GRRALL #0758 – AVAILABLE NOW

Update 5/11/19: Maggie is fully recovered from her spay surgery and has been settling into her foster home the last few weeks. Maggie is a super sweet and loyal girl. She loves to be with her people. She is great with kids too! Takes her a few days to be comfortable around new dogs but she is doing great with the resident dogs in her foster home now. She is crate trained and house broken. Maggie loves to play outdoors and bark at the deer. She plays fetch and tug of war. She is a chewer so needs bones to keep her occupied on the right chew items. Her foster family feels she needs a home with a yard and possible a dog her age to play with.

###Meet Maggie!  Maggie is a gorgeous 4-year-old 49 pound golden mix, surrendered to a rural shelter due to a family emergency.  Our new little angel is reported to be good with kids, cats, and other dogs.  Maggie will spend some time at our vet to be spayed and vaccinated, and should be ready to move to her foster home soon.   Maggie is also heartworm negative! Yay! We will post updates as Maggie adjusts to her new home and we learn more about her personality.

Hudson – Male – 6-years-old – GRRALL #0757 – AVAILABLE SOON

Welcome Hudson!  Hudson was surrendered to a small rural shelter for failing to protect the owner’s goats.  Hudson is half bear at 97 pounds but a lover, not an enforcer.   He is heartworm positive and hadn’t been neutered.  Our new boy is about six years old, very sweet, good with kids and other dogs and untested with cats.  Our transport angel said Hudson loves everyone and is a big goofy lover-boy.

Hudson is at our vet now; our amazing volunteers will visit him daily and make sure he knows he has been saved and will be loved and cared for now and forever.    We will post updates as he adjusts to his new and vastly improved life.

Mr. Waffles is about 12 years old and a bit overweight. He was brought into the shelter as a stray. His owners never came to claim him so a wonderful GRRALL volunteer picked him up.

We will post updates as his foster family gets to know him.

Elsa– Female – 1.5-years-old – GRRALL #752- AVAILABLE NOW

Update 4/26/19: Peach and Elsa are looking for an adoptive home where they can stay together. They are sisters that were surrendered to us together. They are both very sweet and get along with everyone. Peach is more laid back than Elsa. Peach is a bit more vocal then Elsa too. They need a home where they can be supervised since they are still learning what they are allowed to play with. Both the girls are housebroken and crate trained. They know sit and are working on learning other commands so an adopter who is willing to help train them to be the best girls they can be is preferred. They can be jumpy with new people or when they get excited so will need to work on that too. These girls are definitely bonded and enjoy doing everything together.

###Peach and Elsa are golden mix sisters that were surrendered to GRRALL when their owner wasn’t able to keep them. They are your typical hyper 1.5 year old golden girls. They need to be shown the ropes to become the best ladies they can be. These girls are very sweet and loving. Love to be by their people like Velcro dogs. They are both heartworm negative, woohoo! They will be spayed soon. We will be looking for an adopter that is wanting them as a pair.

He is 99% housebroken now, yay! He does get very excited when meeting new people and will jump, they are working with him on this.

Clarence – Male – 8 years-old – GRRALL #0747 – AVAILABLE NOW

Update 5/16/19: Clarence is finally adoption ready. He will be looking for a very special family to adopt him. He is on seizure medication and will need to be kept on this to manage his seizure disorder. Ideally we would love an adopter who is familiar with the care needed for a dog with seizures. Clarence is good with dogs, cats, and kids. He is such a sweet dog! His foster family says he is the best. Clarence, oh so perfectly named is a big, old man, love bug who loves napping and taking short walks. He is a couch potato and can frequently be found laying on the couch hanging out with his foster family. He enjoys his daily rolls in the grass and soaking up the breeze on the deck in the backyard. Clarence doesn’t love being alone, he likes to follow his people around. He is also not fond of the crate, he does well being left in a bedroom of the house with the resident dogs while the foster parents are away. He is quite the foodie though! He loves it!! He will look for it anywhere, even right after his mealtime. He never begs or tries to snag food from his fosters. But if it is left on the counter and reachable, Clarence will get it! He once stole 2lbs of raw chicken off the grill and ate it all! He also enjoys eating the cats food and the resident dogs food! What can we say he loves food!!! He also is quite the chewer, not on furniture but he will shred any toy in 30 seconds, even the “indestructible” kind. He knows basic commands. Clarence’s foster family feel he would do best with a gentle, calm, well behaved dog sibling in his adoptive home. He isn’t one to play with another dog but he enjoys the company and following them around. If you are looking for a super chill old man snuggly companion to love on, this is your guy!

###Update 3/22/19: Clarence is doing really well in his foster home. His foster family can’t say enough good things about him. He went and saw the neurologist this week because he had started experiencing seizures in his foster home. He has started on medication and his foster mom reports he is already acting like he feels so much better. The neurologist suggested Clarence is probably closer to 8 years old, even though our initial vet guesstimated 5.5 years. Stay tuned as we get to know Clarence better!

###Mini Update 3/4/19: Clarence is heartworm negative! Yay! He was neutered last week and had a tumor removed but it is not cancerous. He is recovering now. Stay tuned as we get to know him better.

###Join us in welcoming our new boy Clarence to the GRRALL family. Clarence is about 5.5-years old but may look a bit weathered due to a hard life.  He was rescued from a local shelter; the staff there loved him and said he had the sweetest disposition.  Angel, defender of lost causes, or cartoon optimist, our Clarence is the best of all worlds and we are happy to have him in our pack.

Clarence is at our vet now and already being treated for an infected lip wound and ear infections.  Clarence will receive a thorough exam, heartworm test and prevention, vaccinations, microchip, neuter, and anything else he needs.  Clarence must stay in isolation at the vet for ten days, away from other dogs, to ensure he is healthy after being a stray and spending time at a shelter.  Our amazing volunteers will visit Clarence at the vet and make sure he knows he has been saved and will be loved and cared for now, and forever.    We will update on the status of his heartworm test and when he will be ready for a foster home.

Harley – Male – 7-years-old – GRRALL #0745 – AVAILABLE SOON

Update 5/13/19: Harley has his first heartworm injection this week. Wish him luck!! This is a tough treatment to have to go through. It could have been prevented with heartworm prevention, but sadly he was not that lucky. Harley is a super sweet boy and is great with every dog he meets. He LOVES to swim and hang out in the pool. We will keep you updated for when Harley will be adoption ready.

###Update 3/22/19: Harley should be called Happy! This boy is just the sweetest dog ever! He LOVES toys, like sooooo much! He hoards them on his dog bed because he can’t decide which one to play with next. Harley gets along with the resident dog in his foster home. He has a long road ahead of him because he needs to go through heartworm treatment but his foster mom says he will be quite the trooper! We will update as he goes through his treatment.

###Mini Update 3/4/19: Harley has been in his foster home for just over a week now. He is a sweet boy and loves being petted. He was neutered at the vet and is recovering. Stay tuned as his foster mom gets to know him better while she takes him through heartworm treatment.

###Harley is riding high and fast from his prior world into the arms of his new GRRALL friends.  Harley is 7 years old, 80 pounds, golden retriever, no prior vet care, not neutered, and not surprising, heartworm positive.   Harley is now at our vet, vaccinated, neuter scheduled, and will start on heartworm treatment soon.    We hope Harley never looks back and now only sees people who truly care about the health, well-being, and happiness of animals.

Harley is a very handsome boy, reported to be kid and female dog friendly.  We will update his personality when he is in a foster home where he will receive attention, good quality food, exercise, and unconditional love.

Izzy –  Female –  6-years-old – GRRALL #0553 – AVAILABLE SOON

Gorgeous Izzy is homeless again, through no fault of her own.  Izzy was adopted at eight weeks old and three years later returned when her humans had a baby.    GRRALL then took Izzy and found her a new home but she is being returned again as her humans don’t have time for her.  We will get Izzy up to date on all her vaccinations and heartworm prevention and a thorough check-up at our vet.

We need a great foster and permanent home for Izzy, where she will finally have consistency and true love.   She is good with other dogs, untested with cats, likes to swim, and good with older kids.  She is a very sweet and loving dog who is loyal to her people, regardless.  She is initially fearful of men and needs some time to know they are good people. Once she learns they are okay she is comfortable and affectionate. Izzy can be a bit anxious in new situations, and who wouldn’t be?   Izzy needs a home without small children as her current owners report she snapped at a toddler; we don’t know the circumstances or if the child was supervised so her new home must be with older kids who are taught how to properly interact with dogs. Let’s help Izzy find her TRUE forever family!

Joy – Female – 8-years-old – GRRALL #0737  – AVAILABLE NOW

Update 3/22/19: Joy is the perfect Netflix and chill dog. She is still looking for her forever home. She is very sweet and gentle. She LOVES food!

###Update 2/5/19: HI THERE! My name is Joy, and I am an  8 year old  Golden Retriever/Great Pyrenees mix. This picture was my first day in my new foster home. Oh so comfy!! I was picked up from the shelter and taken to a nearby vet. It turned out that I had mammary cancer, and I had to have the tumor removed. My foster mom said something about “good margins.” I appear to be cancer-free, but I will need to be scanned again in 3 to 6 months along with weekly tummy rubs to check for any new tumors. I am fairly healthy otherwise, but my hips hurt sometimes. I take something to help with my mobility, and I feel so much better! I am one very laid-back  poocherina  and all I want in life is good head rubs…and belly rubs…and booty scratches. I am very independent, and I like to do my own thing. Anyone is free to pet me at any time, but I don’t demand it. I don’t really like hanging out with my humans, and their house dogs are “meh.” I guess they’re cute? Not as cute as me! I’m looking for a laid-back family who understands that I have a mostly Pyrenees personality. I’m stubborn (so says mom) and I do not do what I’m told just because you asked me to. I do what I want, essentially. I never pee or poop in the house (except for my first night but who can blame a girl? I was nervous!). Kiddos are ok….as long as all they want to do is  stay in the house and play Nintendo . Other dogs are fine too, but I probably won’t interact much with them. Mom says I’m a bit of a diva, but whatever  I AM royalty. Just give me  love and the occasional walk!  OH AND DON’T FORGET THE FOOD. I like food.

###Joy was pulled from the shelter last weekend. She is estimated to be about 8 years old. She was listed as urgent because she had a temperature of 103 and a mammary tumor. One of our volunteers picked her up and took her straight to the vet to get checked out. No pyometra was seen on X-rays the vet thinks she was just in heat. Nothing immediately life threatening. She had at least three known tumors. The vet aspirated other tumors to see what we’re working with. She also has an ear injection that our vet has begun treating. She had surgery Thursday to have the tumors removed and was also spayed. She is doing well and recovering. She will go to her foster home very soon.

Our transporter said Joy is very sweet and laid back. Joy loves to be petted. We will update once we know more about her. If you’d like to help us cover Joy’s medical needs: https://cuddly.com/donate/3184638/joy

Butters – Female – 1 year old – GRRALL #0726 – AVAILABLE NOW

Update: Butters is about 1 year old. She was pulled from a shelter as a stray. She is a very sweet and affectionate girl. She would do best in a home with another young playful dog. Butters loves to play and rough-house with the resident dog in her foster home, and she looks to him for cues and guidance too. A quiet home where there are not too many visitors is a plus, as she is fearful of new people. She warms up after a while but will seek a place to hide out until she feels safe. Once she does, she lets that silly, playful personality come out and is a typical goofball Golden with her trusted humans. She does well free-roaming the house at night. She will occasionally get into something but as long as the home is appropriately puppy-proofed she does fine. A home with children over 10 years old would be best since she does not know her size and can easily knock the little ones over. Butters is house broken and is learning basic commands. She needs some training on leash manners but is very treat driven.

Butters is unable to attend a public meet and greet, so we will be doing private meet and greets with potential matches. If you think you might be a match for Butters and already have an adoption application submitted please email grralladopts@gmail.com

###Update 11/11/18: Butters has been spayed and is fully recovered. Butters loves toys and bones. She plays well by herself but does enjoy rough housing with the resident dog. She would do best with another active dog to keep up with her. She is a bit timid still, having another dog would help boost her confidence. Her foster family is working on potty training and basic commands. Butters needs constant supervision since she is still in her mischievous puppy stage, she likes to chew anything and everything but can be easily redirected. Her foster family is also working on teaching her not to jump, she would probably do best with kids over 10 years old because she does not know her size yet. She is crate trained. She enjoys going on walks and window watching. She likes to bury her treats outside, it is super cute to watch her do it. Butters does have a pretty big bark for a female. Stay tuned as her foster family gets to know her better.
###Butters is a one year old Golden Pyrenees mix female who was found as a stray. One of our GRRALL volunteers drove to the small town shelter to spring her from doggy jail. She rode great in the car and just wanted to be petted. She is a sweet and friendly girl. Butters is now at our vet getting a full exam, she will be spayed and moved to her foster home. She should be available for adoption soon. Please stay tuned for updates as her foster family gets to know her.
