About Daisy

"Daisy" is an apox 4 year old female sweetheart who is finally ready to find her perfect furever home!  Daisy came into GRRACE after being found by a good samaritan running along I-70. After a week in the local shelter, she was released to GRRACE as she required medical attention that they were unable to provide.  Daisy was emaciated with most of her ribs & hip bones visible.  She was also flea infested and dirty.  Daisy's biggest issue was the severe muscle wasting on her skull.  This weakened muscle and lack of mass prevented her from eating well, despite a voracious appetite.  I started her on steroids and increased her feedings and amount being fed but was impatiently waiting for her to gain weight!  It has taken over two months to see results, but as they say: slow and steady wins the race.  Daisy currently weighs in at 63lb!  (For those of you medically minded, we tested her for Masticatory Myositis which came back Negative.  All bloodwork in normal).

Daisy is a special girl and has some very specific quirks.  

  • Firstly, because she was a "runner" and has not proved herself trustworthy off leash, I am requesting that applicants have a physical fence. 
  • She likes to go for walks, but will not do her business on a leash, so after walking her, she needs an opportunity to spend time in the backyard to finish her duties.
  • She is currently eating 3 cans of dog  food a day and nearly 4-5 cups of dry food.  (This can get expensive so please keep that in mind)
  • When she meets you for the first time or gets really excited, she tries to "hump" your leg.  We are working on this, but its a work in progress
  • She does this "chomping" thing with her mouth when she wants to give you kisses.  Not biting, but it will catch you off guard at first.

This is a very special, loving girl,  who is working thru some trust issues and is looking for a family that will shower her with love, pets, and squeaky toys.

Meet Goose! Goose is a one-year old handsome golden boy looking for a special forever home. Goose came to GRRACE after we got a call from a local shelter that he had been surrendered. We were immediately taken by his exuberance for life and love and treats, as well as his beauty! We learned pretty quickly that while 99% of the time, Goose was just a typical lover; he also had extreme issues with resource guarding. GRRACE enlisted the assistance of a wonderful behaviorist/trainer and Goose has been living with him and practicing his new lessons since November. Goose needs a home with a dog savvy person; not just a person with lots of dog experience, but a truly savvy dog person. He will need a fenced yard and no kids in the home. Adults only, no exceptions. His adopter will need to be committed to ongoing training, both with his trainer and constant continued work at home. Consistency is crucial and when followed, Goose does really well and will make a lovely companion for that special someone. If you have an approved application on file and think you might be the family who can love Goose, please email Marcie. Please note - no emails will be returned to anyone without an already approved adoption application. PLEASE NOTE: Emails to the foster contact listed above will only be answered if you have an APPROVED application on file with GRRACE. Requests for information from non-approved applicants will not be answered.

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. Please note - no emails will be returned to anyone without an already approved adoption application.
