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. Goose was adopted to the absolute perfect home for him but sadly, and through NO fault of his own, Goose came back to us recently. His adopter suffered a family tragedy which resulted in a huge life change and he could not keep Goose. If you have the time, patience and desire that Goose needs, and have an approved application on file, please email Marcie. 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. If you'd like to adopt from GRRACE in the future, we encourage you to submit an Application as the approval process can take 1-3 weeks.

Hi everyone! My name is Star! I am 7 years old and am a retired puppy mill breeder. Life was pretty scary and hard before I was rescued, but I'm smiling now because life is starting to be great! My foster mom says I am the sweetest and prettiest girl in the world and she has been very helpful to teach me all about the good life. I like to howl at sirens when I am outside and play with all the toys my foster brothers have when my foster mom and dad aren't looking. Sometimes I even pick up their shoes and move them to my favorite room! I have been with my foster family for about a month now and they say that I'm making lots of progress! I was so afraid at first that I would just crouch and hide but now I look people in the eye in hopes that they will love on me. I'm learning that walks with my favorite foster brother are fun and I like it when my foster parents lay with me and tell me about all the adventures I will get to go on. Oh! and I get really excited when it is time for breakfast and dinner too! I need a quiet home with no kids and a family that will be patient with me and continue to teach me new things. I need lots of positive reinforcement so that I know that I am safe. I'll also need other dogs to play with and be my buddies because other dogs really help me feel more confident. IF you have an approved application, a structurally fenced yard and time to devote to Star (she is SO worth it!), please email Marcie. Star is being fostered in Greenwood, IN. PLEASE NOTE: Emails to the foster contact listed above will only be answered if you have an APPROVED application on file with GRRACE.

Hi my name is Trooper! I am 11 years young! I came to GRRACE as an owner surrender; I was very loved by my family. My foster parents nickname for me is “Moose” because I am one of the biggest goldens they have ever fostered. I am a very tall handsome boy and weigh 98 lbs, but I am not overweight, just big boned ;) The gentle giant so to speak! I got a clean bill of health from the vet and they said I was the sweetest dog ever! I get along really well with other dogs and kids. Cats are still an unknown, but I am a gentle soul so likely will be fine. I like to follow my foster peeps around the house and touch them whenever possible but I definitely like my down time; I am 11 after all. I am house trained and can be left alone while you are away - no need to crate me! I did great with my bath and grooming. I will require a house with a fenced backyard as I like to go and explore if given the opportunity. I love attention and belly rubs and I even have a couple of tricks up my sleeve. I might be an older pup but I have plenty of life left in me and I need a special family who can appreciate a special guy! Trooper is being fostered in McCordsville, IN. If you have an approved application on file, please email Marcie.
