About Flatcoat Retrievers

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 can provide for Archie's needs, please email Marcie. Meet Archie. Archie is a 1 year old, 85-pound puppy. He can be likened to a large, fluffy teddy bear. Notice in his handsome portrait the adorable freckles! He came to live with us from his previous home where he had been well cared for but was a bit too much for their small family to keep up with. He would love to find his furever home and settle in with lots of cuddles and sloppy kisses. He is a sweet, playful, loving, rambunctious, puppy and will be a great addition to his furever family. Archie has a very sweet, playful personality. He plays well with his canine foster brother and sister and would do best in a home with another large dog he could play with. He does play hard and another dog his size with puppy-like energy would be best suited for his playtime needs. He is housebroken with few exceptions (only when the hoomans are not paying close enough attention does he have an accident). He prefers to sleep in his house (crate) at night. During the day, while the hoomans are at work, Archie rests in his house with no complaints or separation anxiety. He will need a large, fenced outdoor space as he is a large boy who likes to run. If he is left outside unattended and becomes bored he will find a way out of the fence, but this is not a problem if he is supervised and/or entertained. Archie is still learning his manners and will need a family that will patiently and consistently work on his manners with him. Because he has not yet learned not to jump up, and he is quite large, it would be best not to have small hoomans in his furever home. Despite his size, he loves to cuddle and be cuddled, including spending plenty of time in his hooman’s lap. Oh, and he loves to lay on the hooman’s feet, a welcome service during the cold months. If you have an approved application on file and think you might be the family who can love Archie, please email Marcie.

If you have an approved application on file and have read this bio and feel you can provide for Dodger's needs, please email Marcie. Hi everyone! My name is Dodger and I’m one of the three boys that came to GRRACE from Qatar! It was a long journey but I’m here and ready to find my forever family. I’m a 2 year old neutered dude and the most handsome red/dark copper color. My foster mom says I’m so attractive that I prance to show off my dashing good looks. I’m a strong guy and kind of clumsy, so I probably shouldn’t be around small kids. When I’m not playing I’ll be happy to be your cuddle buddy! I like other dogs but I can be a rough when playing. I’m a puller on walks, but that was easily corrected with a Walk Easy leash. I’m good in a crate, but I’d prefer to not go in them without some coaxing. I don’t have any separation anxiety when you’re gone, and I’m super happy to see you when you get home. I’m potty trained, but I may have accidents until I’m comfortable in my new digs. I need a structured fence so I can go speed doggin’ in the backyard. I’m your typical 2 year old boy with lots of energy but I’m not overly crazy. Oh, and I’m not a fan of cats. They’re strange little critters to me and I like to stalk them. I could benefit from obedience training to help me excel at being man/woman’s best friend. xo, Dodger (or Dodgie). If you have an approved application on file and think you might be the family who can love Dodger, please email Marcie.

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.

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.
