Elsa is new in foster care. More information will be coming soon.
Leo made the trip to his foster home just fine, this boy loves to ride in the car! He is getting settled in with his temporary family and is enjoying getting to know everyone and everything. Leo will be giving us an official update after he sees the vet. We are all excited to learn more about the beautiful boy, so stay tuned!
Wow! What a journey! Joey’s had so much happen since the last update.
Joey’s first surgery and rehab is complete and he made it through like a champ. The doc said he’s like a whole different puppy and it was great seeing him show some spunk!
We’ve found that not only does he like to play with tennis balls, but he LOVES to play with water. It doesn’t matter if it’s from his water dish, the hose, his pool, a pond or a lake. If it splashes, he’s all in! He sure is loving all this rain we’re getting! Joey’s a gentle pup who loves playing and snuggling with his foster sisters. He doesn’t discriminate, so if there should be an open lap... 😊
Joey's second surgery was on September 5th, we’re keeping our fingers crossed that everything goes as well as the first! We’ll keep you posted.
Murphy has found his forever home, more updates to come.
He is quite popular in my neighborhood! I have been walking Teddy along the sidewalk several times a day to help with his strength and coordination. He has encountered kids, bikes, other dogs, friends and strangers but does not shy away. A very positive note for local wildlife: With his limited sight Teddy does not see movement in the distance so the squirrels and cats in the neighborhood are safe from him. He will not attempt to descend steep steps but, if excited, will scamper UP steps with enthusiasm. At 5 months and 28 pounds Teddy still has lots to learn but is not shy or fearful. He appears to be stable on his seizure medications and enjoys playtime, walks and napping with the other dogs. With continued attention and supervision he will continue to be a great companion and one of the sweetest Golden puppies around!"
Hi everyone, my name is Jase and I'm about 2 years old, according to the vet. I'm not bragging, but my foster parents have told me I am a wonderful boy, aside from a few bad habits that I have to work on. I'm a really mellow guy, but do like to play outside and I especially love the doggy pool! I also love my daily walks and don't even pull when we are walking. I really love people, they are my favorite. I like most dogs, and really don't care about cats. I got to visit the vet recently and got an "all good" after my neuter surgery. The vet did notice a little ear infection starting so I get drops in my ears and it should be cleared up in no time. My foster family says I get a little possessive with some really good treats and also my food occasionally, but I am a growing boy and I guess I have to learn to share better. I am working on sharing and everyone thinks I will get over that as I learn more. Well, that's all for now, I will keep you tuned in on my progress!
Mickey has developed a limp so he is on medical hold until we find out what the issue is.
Sammy has easily settled in to her new foster home. She quickly bonded with her foster sisters and they love to play. Sammy is a happy, go lucky pup. Sammy’s breathing issues persist but she doesn’t let it keep her down. Sammy is a very smart and curious pup. She is good at entertaining herself and loves her ball. Sammy is a happy, happy girl.
Wally has found his forever home!
Zilla has is now a forever foster. He was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma in his nasal passage. He will enjoy living up to his final day. Plus lots of treats....burgers, donuts, cookies..........
Wally continues to be a great dog with a big personality! He loves his hikes, walks and runs, and absolutely loves swimming in the lake near our house. Wally is very obsessed with toys and balls...we've learned that you have to put them away and only bring out his toys when you are ready to play, play, play! He will go lay down with his toys if you ask, but he is so anxious about not playing, he will rip them apart. When playtime is over and his toys are put away in his toy chest, he is such a love bug. His new favorite way to get love: bound up in bed with you in the morning and do body slams against your back until you are awake and petting him. He gives you a big sloppy kiss and flips over for belly rubs. It's quite hilarious...if you like a big fuzzy slobbery alarm clock. We try to lay still and play possum so he doesn't see we are awake and stays in his bed on the floor, but you can only do that for so long. Ha! Wally will do so well in an active home who loves his antics as much as we do! He continues to be great in the car, great in the house, and great with people and kids. He is great with my male Aussie, plays and wrestles appropriately, shares toys, but we have to watch and monitor him closely with my female Aussie mix. She is grumbly around him, and they definitely have a love-hate relationship. Again, dog parks may not be the best thing with him since he takes offense to alpha personalities.
Jase arrived at his foster home safe and sound. He is getting settled in and and learning lots about his new beginning. I am sure he will be giving everyone an update real soon! Stay tuned to learn more about this sweetie!
It is with much pain and sadness in my heart to say that I no longer have my best friend Butterscotch. She passed on to the rainbow bridge on July 31st. She was 12 1/2 yrs old. She had been having issues with advanced kidney disease since last April. I had fostered her for 2 yrs. One of those years she was my forever foster. I can't begin to say how wonderful she was and how much joy and happiness she brought to me. She was truly my best friend that I loved so much. She was my first foster dog from GRRoW and I'm so grateful to them for sending her to me. She added so much to my life and I feel that we were meant for each other. I miss her so much. She is no longer by my side but will always be in my heart.
Gabby found her forever home!
Clara has found her forever home.
Bodie has been enjoying his new forever home and has started volunteering as an ambassador for GRRoW at fundraising events. He has already attended his first baseball game during a Bark in the Park promotion and he loves to go on walks (or lay near the fireplace) with his new dog sister. He attracts a lot of attention from the dog lovers in the neighborhood and he loves the attention from anyone who will shake his paw. Bodie loves to cuddle and spend time just being with his human family and we are so happy we got to make him part of our family.
Leo the quirky weatherman...this sweet boy is hands-down, one of the funniest Goldens we have ever had the pleasure of being owned by. We no longer rely on The Weather Channel because Leo is a much more accurate predictor than even Jim Cantore (please don't tell Jim)! When a storm is approaching, Leo lets us know, in no uncertain terms. Since coming into our hearts and home on July 31st we have worked hard to help him be more at ease with the weather but he still worries and we continue to work with him. We have promised him that in some small way, we will help him heal from his early life experiences, one day we hope that those memories will fade completely away. He has quickly embraced his own comfy bed, watching TV and has proven himself to be a world-class traveler. We took him on a road trip for 6 days and he was a complete gentleman, becoming very adept at leash walking, meeting new people and new dogs. His funny quirks, closing and opening doors when he's worried, howling with happiness when we come home and bringing us a toy when he greets us are just some of the reasons he is loved in his new home. We couldn't be happier that our new fur-baby is Leo!!
Hi everyone, Fergus again! I am adjusting well to life in my forever home. I have been eating great and love hanging out with my big brother. He looks just like me only a different color! We had a blast swimming in the lake and playing on the beach recently, and my forever family is so overjoyed and thankful to GRRoW for helping us become a family.
