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.

Snurdley – Male – 10-years old – GRRALL #0775 – AVAILABLE SOON
Snurdley is a gorgeous 10-year old golden boy looking for a new home. Our boy Snurdley is a spry 62 pound senior, surrendered after living in a cement floor kennel for five years as his elderly owner’s health declined. Snurdley is a GRRALL boy now, his first stop was to the vet for a thorough exam and to schedule his neuter, still unaltered as had been used for breeding. Snurdley is in good health and thankfully heartworm negative. He does have large calluses and some dermatitis from the kennel, and rear muscle atrophy due to inactivity, which should improve with regular exercise.
Snurdley has the classic golden personality. Despite his last few years he is incredibly sweet and loving, adores humans, and is happy to be around other dogs and cats and just thrilled to be out of his cage. He is in a foster home now, playing with the resident dog, stands close to the humans to see what they are up to, loves to give and receive kisses, and never met a stranger. Snurdley does need a refresher course on house-training, not surprising considering his past living conditions.
Aspen – Female – 1-year-old – #0773 – AVAILABLE SOON
Aspen is a gorgeous one-year old golden girl, rescued from the street by a Great Samaritan, and is now recovering from her spay. Aspen is stunning, fully grown at 45 pounds, found running the streets, flea-infested and malnourished; and had already had a litter of puppies. The amazing family who saved Aspen took her to the vet immediately and then reached out to GRRALL to find her a permanent home where she can be adored and cared for as the puppy she was meant to be.
Aspen gets along well with dogs, cats, kids, and humans. She is a fun loving girl who wants a home to call her own. Aspen is unfortunately heartworm positive so it will be several months before she is adoption ready. She will go through treatment with her foster family. She is crate trained and house broken. Her foster family said she is a happy go lucky girl and a joy to be around. They are helping her learn basic commands, so far she has perfected sit.
Merlin – Male – 8 to 10 years old – GRRALL #0770 – AVAILABLE NOW
Meet Merlin, our magical new boy who finally got lucky when he was rescued by GRRALL.
Merlin is a typical case of abandonment and neglect. He is about 8-10 years old and 62 pounds. Merlin was found as a stray, covered in fleas and ticks, dental issues, probably some arthritis, matted, and skin rashes. Merlin may have been someone’s “pet” as he is amazingly heartworm negative and not underweight. We have seen dogs like Merlin so many times and know that with proper medical care, time, and TLC from our amazing volunteers and supporters, Merlin will become a new dog and put the past behind him. Despite his physical condition Merlin is a sweetheart and was so happy to be saved, loving his freedom ride and grinning ear to ear. Merlin will make some lucky adopter a sweet and gentle senior companion, appreciative to be alive and treated humanely.
Merlin will spend some time at our vet recovering and then move to a foster home to start his new life. We will keep you updated on his progress.
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.
Connor – Male – 2-years-old – GRRALL #0765 – AVAILABLE NOW
Update October 2019: Conner has been quite the trooper through his heartworm treatment and is feeling so much better! Stay tuned for his meet and greet debut!!
Update 7/22/19: Connor is sadly heartworm positive and will have to go through treatment before he is adoption ready.
###Welcome Connor! Connor is gorgeous two-year old sixty pound golden mix boy, found as a stray and never claimed. Lucky for Connor a great family took him in and spent weeks searching for his owners. Connor is a GRRALL boy now and we are happy to have him in our pack. This freckle-faced handsome guy is very friendly and reported to be great with children and other dogs. Connor will receive a full medical exam and be ready for a foster home. This sweet guy should be adoption ready soon.
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!
