We use Adopt-a-Pet and PetFinder to list all of our currently available dogs. Dogs are updated regularly so check back often. If you do not see a possible match, it is still best to submit an adoption application as we get new dogs in weekly.
Please note that we do not adopt outside of the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Our service area is limited to Dallas and Tarrant counties and the immediate bordering counties – Wise, Denton, Collin, Rockwall, Kaufman, Ellis, Johnson, Hood and Parker counties.

Henry – Male – 10-years-old – #0784 – AVAILABLE SOON
Henry is the story we all need to hear, a phenomenal transformation in just a few weeks, unrecognizable from his intake pictures. Our handsome 10-year-old Henry found himself at a local shelter, in shockingly bad condition. Teeth worn down to the gums, exposed roots, so matted and filthy he had to be shaved, poor muscle strength from lack of nutrition, eye infections and vision impairment, and heartworm positive. Despite everything our 67 pound Henry was a doll, an absolute joy with the shelter workers, loving and affectionate with the GRRALL volunteers who rescued him. He spent the freedom ride with his head in the volunteer’s lap, happy, calm and relaxed. Henry adjusted to his foster home immediately and his huge SMILE and his clean, fluffy, gorgeous body say it all. He is quite playful and spunky, enjoying life and his foster family.
Henry will spend some time with his foster family recovering and getting as healthy as possible. We will update his progress as he learns what it is like to be loved and adored, with the care and treatment he deserves.
Beans – Male – 1.5 years-old – 75 pounds – #0783 – AVAILABLE NOW
Beans is a gorgeous 1.5-year-old red Golden male, puppy through and through. Beans owner scheduled euthanasia, for the sin of being a hyperactive untrained puppy, until a good neighbor stepped in and asked GRRALL to add him to our pack. Beans has been in his GRRALL foster home now for two months and is doing phenomenally well, he is very intelligent and a quick learner. Physically Beans had been well cared for but the people who purchased him were not well suited to raising a puppy or having a dog, did not take advice on training, and used the crate for punishment.
Bean’s Foster Mom says he is an energetic boy who LOVES all types of toys. He is a Velcro dog who LOVES human affection. Beans likes to spend time outside sunbathing, enjoys a good nap on the couch and LOVES car rides He is house-trained, properly crate-trained now, gets along great with his canine foster brother, and shows no signs of food aggression.
Beans is still learning in other areas, making up for lost time. He does OK on a leash and is working on basic manners, and learning proper social distancing with other dogs. He gets a bit nervous around new people (don’t we all now?) and loud noises.
Beans will do best with experienced dog people, a younger playful dog who can accept his pushy play style, and either no children or older teens. Beans does not like quick unexpected movements towards him so no young kids. He is not cat tested but based on his general enthusiasm and play style cats probably not a good idea.
Teddy (fka Rebel) – Male – 6 years old – GRRALL #0578 – AVAILABLE NOW
Teddy was adopted about two years ago from GRRALL. He was living the good life with his family. They traveled all over in an RV, and he has been to so many destinations. Unfortunately, his human dad unexpectedly passed away and his human mom is not able to continue his care. Teddy is again looking for an adopter to make him part of their family.
Teddy is a Golden/Pyr mix. He is a tall boy and weighs about 75 lbs. Because of his large size, he would do best in a home with older children. Smaller kiddos could be easily knocked over by such a big boy. He obviously does great in the car since he has traveled around so much and is house trained. He isn’t terribly playful, but he does have a favorite toy that he likes. Teddy will need a little bit of leash training as he gets worked up when he sees other dogs while on walks. He would very much be happy just hanging out at home with his people. Teddy gets along great with the cat in his home. He does well around other dogs in his home when they are over visiting. He doesn’t like to share his food, treats, or toys so probably would prefer to stay an only dog. Who wouldn’t want to be the center of attention? Teddy makes for a good guard dog because of his deep bark when he sees people approach the house. It’s all an act, however, as he loves visitors and is friendly when people come over.
Teddy is just a big old teddy bear and a total lovebug. He just wants to be with his people and get lots of attention and pats. We will be doing private meet and greets for Teddy since he gets a bit worked up around other dogs on leash.
Banjo– Male – 2-years-old – GRRALL #753 – AVAILABLE SOON
Update 7/12/19: Banjo has completed heartworm treatment, yay! He is not adoption ready yet. He is very fearful and skittish still. He is making great strides in his foster home. Very smart but unsure of people still. He knows his name, is learning sit and walks very well on a leash. He is house broken now and knows how to use the dog door when he wants to go outside. He rides great in the car. His foster family took him on vacation with them. They stayed in a condo for 4 days, he was great. Banjo needs to continue to build his confidence before being adoption ready. He will be going to see a veterinarian behaviorist to assist with his progress. Stay tuned for updates!
###Banjo is about two years old, 60 pounds, he was found at a popular dumping ground by a good Samaritan. They contacted GRRALL and our amazing transport volunteer went and got him. He is very shy at first but will warm up over time. He is a gorgeous boy. Sadly Banjo is heartworm positive and will have to undergo treatment with his foster family. So he will not be adoption ready for 2-3 months. Stay tuned as we watch Banjo’s personality open up while he is with his foster family.
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!
