Boo, Baby Girl, Remus, and CocoIn a litter of Flatcoat Retrievers there were 4 pups (out of 8) who had some difficulty with their sense of balance (called vestibular disorder, evaluated at Purdue vet, quite rare), resulting in a bit of an odd gait. It does not prevent them from regular running and playing, just not as fast or agile as the unaffected pups. They also have a condition in their eyes, which mostly has no effect at all, but in one pup caused blindness, and in one other, sight in one eye affected. The ophthalmologist and I surmise that these two things are somehow linked, but because they are so rare, not much is known.

They are 16 months old at this point.

 

Coco has a great personality, socializes and plays well with the other pups, as well as entertains herself with toys easily. she even likes to retrieve. As with all the affected pups, she has a goofy gait, swinging her hips a bit, and has one affect- ed blue eye, which may be blind on the left side, but it does not seem to affect her. (Coco is spayed).

 

Boo is totally blind at this point but does not seem to care. He chases after whichever dog is running with a toy. He loves playing with the girl dogs, uses his paws a lot. It takes some dogs a while to adapt to his play style, and he does better with the girls than the boys right now, who don't put up with his antics as well. He gets into trouble just like his siblings. It is amazing to watch him use his senses to find his toys around the yard. He also loves playing with the Weimaraner next door. He is outgoing and confident. We got him a Babble ball, which makes sounds when it moves, which he totally loves.

 

Baby girl, or BG, is the smallest of the group, but not by much. She went through a rock eating phase, resulting in sur- gery, and was spayed at the time. She plays very well with the other two, loves to run, usually to sprint, because her legs are not as long as the others, so she isn't quite as fast..

 

Remus is the fourth affected pup and has been adopted. Aside from extraction of a retained puppy tooth, he remains healthy and happy. He has only tried to eat a friends phone a few times, but she needed a new phone anyway! BG and Boo spent two weeks at her house over the summer while I was on vacation, and though it took a little time, they all adapted fine.

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. 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.

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. 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 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.
