About Duke

Hi all – Duke here.  I am a 1 ½ young boy rescued with from a puppy mill.  Boy has life changed for me…and all for the better!!!  I will be two years old in March 2018.  I am a tall boy with lots of energy that my foster family is trying to harness.  Because my first two years of life were in bad conditions, I have to learn social skills and confront my fears.  I am teaching my foster family about those fears and they are encouraging me and loving me through my progress.  I need my forever family to spend time and energy to help me continue to progress.  And my foster family needs to be patient with me so I can continue to grow into a terrific young man.

I am a huge cuddle bug and love attention!  I like to chew on my hard chew toys.  I travel in the car in a crate and I like that.  Going to the vet is new to me so I get scared but am very sweet to the vets and techs.  They have told foster mom how lovable I am….pretty cool for me.  I crate easily but get to be out in foster mom and dad’s bedroom at night.  I do crate when they are gone to make sure I don’t have accidents or get in trouble.  I am learning to go for walks but need patience with this as I sometimes get scared and need encouragement.

Because of my size, age, and energy, I would be best in a family with children over 10 years of age.  I am fine with other dogs. I haven’t met cats so no comment there.   I am learning to play with my two-year old foster brother. Foster mom and dad think I would be most successful with a furry friend at least 4 or 5 years old or older.  I would be fine as an only dog.  I definitely need a yard with a structural fence so I can go outside and enjoy life!    If you have an approved application on file and would like to meet handsome Duke, please email Marcie.

If you have an approved application on file and have read this bio, and feel you are a good home for Cricket, please email Marcie. Hi there, I am Cricket, I'm a 9yo boy, and am looking for my forever home. My human got very sick and had to send me to the shelter when he couldn't take care of me any more. I'm housebroken and leave everything alone in the house but food. I'm good with other dogs and cats. I'm healthy and neutered and up to date on my shots. I'm a little smaller than other Goldens, and have cuter ears, because I'm only part Golden! I like being petted and going for walks, and when my foster mom is busy I like to hang out in my crate, or take a nap near her. I am hoping for a calm, laid-back house of adults with no kids - I'm not used to being in a house all the time and need someone with patience who will teach me how this works. If you have an approved application on file and think you might be the family who can love Cricket, please email Marcie. Please note - no emails will be returned to anyone without an already approved adoption application.

My name is Hutch, and I traveled all the way from Qatar to come to GRRACE! I am around 4 years old and as sweet as can be. I am my foster mom’s shadow wherever she goes, and I really like wrestling and running around with my Golden foster brother. There is something called a ‘cat’ around here that I’m very curious but cautious about! I am very well behaved and usually calm, but I will probably try to sit up and hug you when you come in the door! I also will bring you a present of some kind to greet you – a dog toy, shoe, or anything else I can find. I am learning that walks are fun, but my foster mom says I pull a little bit. I’m just curious about all the new smells! I walk with a limp on my back left leg because one of my hips was broken as a puppy, but I run around just fine and am not in pain. I am currently taking some medicine for anxiety because it was such a big transition to my new life, but I am doing great! My favorite thing to do is lie with my head in someone's lap to get some love. I can’t wait to meet my forever family! Hutch would do best in a home with older children. If you have an approved GRRACE application on file and are interested in meeting him, please contact Marcie.

Hi, my name is Nugget. I was Louise when arrived in the USA from China. I didn’t have the best life before being rescued but thankfully I was rescued and I got my freedom flight to the United States on 11/6. I am a little smaller than the average golden, just 45 pounds. My foster family thinks I was meant to get bigger because I have super big floppy ears and large paws but the vet says I am done growing. I didn’t get a lot of human attention before being rescued but I am making up for that now. I can be a little shy at first but I warm up to people really quickly. I play well with other dogs and toys but if a human is available to pet and love me, I much prefer that. The vet thinks I am around 2 years old but I am basically a puppy at heart. My foster family has been working with me on basic commands and manners and my foster mom thinks I am very smart so she doesn’t think it will be very hard for me to be a well trained dog. I have caught on quickly! I am also LOVE food and I will do anything for a treat. I do good around kids but I will sometimes use my mouth to ask for attention (I like to put your hand in my mouth when you aren’t looking but I don’t bite down!). My foster family is trying to break that habit but I might still need some help. This is very typical of Golden puppy behavior so I'll learn it's not really appreciated. Because I crave so much human attention and I still need help with my training, my foster parents say I need a family that has a lot of time to devote to me. I had a few accidents when I first came to my foster family but I think I am potty trained now. I am crate trained and do well in a crate when the humans aren’t home. I walk well on a leash and like to go on walks to the park. I do not have any experience with cats. If you have lots of love and time for me and you have an approved application on file, please email Marcie. I am being fostered on the east side of Indianapolis.

This is Sam. He might have more air travel miles than anyone you know! GRRACE rescued him from China where his future was in peril. He is one happy dude learning to live in America. Sam is about 3 yrs. old, and he’s very healthy. He does have a dislocated left hind leg knee. However, he was born with this handicap. The knee makes him limp a bit when he walks, but at full speed it’s not even noticeable! Since he loves to run, we don’t feel that his knee causes him any pain. Sam gets along with other dogs, meets people very well, and will be very easy to train. He’s going to be a great family member! UPDATE ON SAM!! Sam has made giant strides in well-being and socialization since coming to his foster home in May. Sam is fun-loving, gentle, and good on a leash. He loves ice cubes!! If you have an approved application on file and think you might be the family who can love Sam, please email Marcie.
