Congratulations on finding your forever home, buddy! We are so happy for you and the people who are now your family!
June 10th, 2016:
Great news to share! Buddy has been adopted! So happy for all of them and wish them the very best!
October 28th, 2015:
Buddy is just a big ham!! He just wants rubs and a good run…he likes to be tired out at the end of the day! We play with the tennis ball when Sage isn’t around. Buddy still continues to check out the pond. We put a snow fence around it as we had a friend bring us more fish for the winter and Buddy has figured out a way around the snow fence. He takes a little dip and then comes out… He's great to have around!
September 17th, 2015:
Buddy and his bonded companion, Sage, came into GRRoW last Thursday. They had been staying at a kenneling facility since their owner passed away this past May. Buddy and Sage are love bugs (aren't all goldens???) and will be looking for their forever home together soon!
Adoption Date: 4/25/2016
April 26th, 2016:
We are so excited to share Lambeau's great news. Lambeau has been adopted. He is loving his forever home and they are loving him. Lambeau already enjoys raw sweet potatoes, artichokes and apples. His forever home said Lambeau's tastes will fit right in with there veggie and fruit menu
Apoquel was the miracle medicine for Lambeau's allergies. I feel like I had the privilege of meeting Lambeau for the first time after he started on the Apoquel (Apoquel Start date Dec 15, 2015) Note: Lambeau had been on a waiting list for Apoquel since May 2015. Lambeau had always been kind and gentle. Now I am meeting the Lambeau who is actually excited about his life! Lambeau had so much puppy-like energy... it was wonderful to watch. He was running and jumping on the couch and initiating playing with his favorite toys.
January 13th, 2016:
Lambeau was able to start on a new allergy medication (apoquel) in Mid-December. His dose of zyrtec has been cut in half, and he’s gone for 3 weeks without needing a medicated bath. The steroid lotion has also been eliminated. Beginning today, we are eliminating all the zyrtek and will see if Lambeau can remain comfortable with monthly medicated baths. I am pleased to report he is doing wonderfully! His itching is pretty normal and he appears very comfortable. He continues to show me more and more of his personality each day. He is initiating play and entertaining himself with squeaker toys. These are all new behaviors; maybe he’s feeling good for the first time in a very long time and we can see who he really is. Lambeau puts his head in my lap and asks for cuddles and hugs. He is such a sweet and gentle little man. On Saturday we did the Meet and Greet at Younkers. Lambeau is always excited to participate and has as much fun with all the attention he gets. When people find out his name is Lambeau, they are over the top with excitement. Lambeau enjoys being with the other Golden Retrievers that are there and patiently waits for the children to pet him.
December 14th, 2015:
In early November Lambeau had an allergy flair up. He was treated with a course of antibiotic and prednisone to bring down the inflammation. Until there is a hard freeze that holds, he will likely have ongoing issues with his allgerys. Lambeau's routine continues: weekly baths with medicated shampoo followed by steriod lotion. We play ball while he air dries in the kitchen with the fan going to circulate air. He also gets Zrytex twice daily and 1 tablespoon of coconut oil on his dog food. We are hoping to get his allergies more consistently under control before looking for Lambeau’s forever home. We may do some testing to find out exactly what he’s allergic to; we continue to be on the waiting list for the drug Apoquel which is said to be very effective. Lambeau barks very little when company enters the house and then he talks to them telling them how excited and happy he is that they came to visit him! He’s great meeting people of all ages, including children. Lambeau is always eager to go for a ride in the car or a long walk. He enjoys all the people and dogs he meets along the way.
October 3rd, 2015 Update:
Lambeau is doing great! He is always excited about going for walks. Our normal routine is morning and evening and sometimes a midday walk. He does best with cooler temperatures, so Fall is welcomed. He also eagerly goes for car rides; given the chance, he’ll jump into the front and ‘ride shotgun’.
Lambeau continues to surprise me. He’s relaxed around other dogs. A couple of weeks ago, he went to GRRoW’s Bark in the Park and was a hit with other volunteers and all the other Goldens. People couldn’t believe how healthy he looks.
Overall, the Vet is so pleased with the progress Lambeau has made with his allergies. His coat is fluffy and soft and hair has been growing back around his eyes. He has occasional flare ups (most recently last week) which require a trip to the vet. The treatment is usually continued diligence with medicated baths, lotion, and sometimes antibiotics. Managing his allergies is a bit of work, but Lambeau gives lots of love in return!
July 19th, 2015 Update:
Lambeau is now up to date on his vaccinations. He got these over a few weeks.
Overall, he seems much more comfortable with his allergies, and as you can see from his last photo, his coat is looking good and the hair is even growing back around his eyes!
He had a bad allergy flair up a week or so ago which we treated with an antibiotic, more medicated baths with a special lotion to soothe his skin, and a topical steroid spray. He also had a bout of diarrhea which was treated with metranidozole. Hi allergy treatment plan also includes 2 pills of generic Zrytex twice daily along with a tablespoon of coconut oil on his dog food twice a day.
Allergies aside, Lambeau is a great dog. He is calm when we are walking, and when he meets another dog, he slows down his pace and seems curious & open to meeting them. He is much more excited to see the dog owners, especially when they call him by his name.
We did experience two golden retrievers jumping a fence to meet Lambeau. The owners were unaware their dogs could clear the fence. Lambeau reacted beautifully. . . He just calmly stood there until the owners retrieved their dogs.
Lambeau gets excited when we are going to take a walk and jumps up in front of me. He doesn't’ respond to “off”, but he’s learned to sit nicely when I ask him to so I can get his harness on.
May 27, 2015 Update:
Lambeau has severe allergies. When he arrived, he was clearly uncomfortable and could not stop scratching. He’s lost much of the hair around his eyes, and he had some eyebrow bleeding from the scratching. Even with all the itching, his personality shines through, and he is kind and very gentle.
Lambeau went to the vet for his first checkup. He got his rabies shot, and meds for his bilateral ear infection, and is on antibiotics for a skin infection. The vet also prescribed medicated shampoo and directed to give Lambeau a bath 2 times a week until his scratching settles down. Rather than benedryl, the vet put him on generic Zyrtec to help control the itching. He will be going in for a recheck next week, but he seems to be feeling more comfortable already. He does continue to scratch and bite his feet, but if I call his name, he will stop scratching.
Lambeau has a very nice stride when we are walking and responds well to ‘heel’. When I stop to talk with people he is very, very patient and just quietly waits. It seems like Lambeau has been here for months. He is calm and gentle and enjoys our walks 2 to 3 times daily.
May 24, 2015 Update:
Lambeau is a very sweet boy who came into GRRoW on May 15 and is settling into his foster home nicely. Stay tuned for updates!
Adoption Date: 3/31/2017
May 4th, 2017:
Bailey has been adopted!
December 22nd, 2016:
Bailey has been in her foster home for a few months now and continues to have some issues so her foster mom took her to the vet for some xrays, it appears Bailey has some spinal and hip issues and the vet suggested trying pain medications. Bailey is a very sweet girl, who clearly is in pain, we hope we can get this under control for her. We will update you on her progress soon.
October 17th, 2016:
Bailey is doing well adjusting to her Foster Home.
October 3rd, 2016:
Please welcome Bailey to GRRoW! Updates coming soon.
June 1, 2015 Update:
Bentley Lent (formerly 15-008) is 7yrs. old and is a beautiful dog in all respects. He loves people and is being considered for training as a therapy dog for work at the VA Center.
March 2, 2015 Update:
We are happy to report that Bentley has been adopted. We will have more information for you once Bentley has settled in.
February 22, 2015 Update:
Bentley has adjusted to a new environment quite well. He has been to the vet and received a good report. It is unbelievable how well trained he is and also how well-groomed. He loves to play and be around people. When it warms up, it will be exciting to see him outside playing as he is full of energy. Many people comment about his looks, demeanor and size. He is a joy to have around.
February 2, 2015 Update:
Beautiful Bentley arrived to his foster home on 1/30/15. He is charming everyone! We will have more information on him after he settles in.
November 10th, 2015:
Jenny has done a great job of recovering from her eye surgery and is back to her 3 mile walks and playing in the yard. We are getting ready to plan the other eye to remove the ulceration and will be ready for adoption after surgery. I am so proud of how far she has come over the last few months and has turned out to be a very loving dog for a great family. She loves to be outside, play fetch and loves her daily walks. We have had her interact with cats and she did great- no issues. Looking for a great family to love her, take her on daily walks or have a large yard for her to play in. She will be a great addition to the family.
September 16th, 2015:
Jenny is just about ready to find her forever home. The pain meds, chiropractic adjustments, and acupuncture have done wonders for her getting around better. We have been able to build up the muscles in her rear legs through gradual increases in walks and swims, as well as relieve some of the pain in the hips with the other therapies. She has also started taking glucosamine supplements for joint health which she should be on for the rest of her life. She is walking about 2 miles now and loves the water and playing fetch. We will be reducing /eliminating her pain meds to the point where she needs them only for comfort/maintenance.
The lick granuloma on her back leg wound is healing nicely and the hair is starting to grow over the top again… should be good as new in the next week. She was groomed which got rid of a ton of undercoat and also cut her fur short.
She is not a barker, does not go on furniture, doesn’t jump, and doesn’t sleep on the beds. She loves people. I have not had her with smaller kids so have no idea how she would be with them. She is a very loving dog and loves attention. She is not a runner and likes to walk around the yard… she stays close to me when I am in the gardens.
The only down side is she is not always great with other dogs. She has been around some without issue, but with others she will growl. We will be looking for a home where she can be the only dog and will have limited and controlled interactions with other dogs.
August 25th, 2015:
Jenny has adjusted well in her new foster home... she loves being outside and enjoys the water- has been frog hunting in the pond... lol! She is walking almost a mile now and so enjoys it! Her leg wound is closed and ready to start water therapy. Here is a picture of her in my pumpkin patch! She is looking forward to the pumpkin bread we are going to bake!
July 13, 2015:
Jenny was subdued for a day or so at first, but she now seems comfortable and relatively unstressed. Eating and drinking normally. When outside for business, she stays fairly close. No tendency to wander off. We keep her in sight, but leash isn’t needed unless we go for a stroll down the street. We’ve left her alone for very brief periods, and no distress other than a whine or two. Indoors, she likes attention but is not at all a “Velcro Dog.” She’ll accept affection and then wander off to lie down. May or may not follow us around the house – mostly not. She didn’t seem to know what a nice big dog bed was. She sleeps on the floor at night – random locations. We have not tried her on our staircases. Her joints seem a bit difficult for her. Three steps to the garage and climbing into a car are a bit difficult. If I try to pick her up, she yelps at me with bared teeth. A Rimadyl a day seems to help. We’re continuing her regimen with what came with her (Earthborne kibble). She likes it, and processes seem normal. I’ve reached into her dish twice to drop in a half Rimadyl tablet – no reaction. She likes little treats and will “give me paws” as I give them to her.Jenny has met three dogs so far. Son’s Lab mix is young, boisterous and pushy, but very sweet natured. Jenny and Paxton “had words” a couple of times, and he is a devilish playful sort. Jenny didn’t like his poking and bugging her, but they ended up playing a little and settling down. Next door neighbor has a young male boxer. After a curled lip or two, Jenny was quickly trotting around with him, and they seemed OK. She also met the 11year old son, and she was fine. He knew better than to run up and hug a strange dog. she met a squirrel going out our door. She had no clue what to do. Not much prey drive there. No reaction to birds on feeders on the deck.Jenny’s a very gentle, sweet natured dog, but she has initial issues when meeting new dogs. So far, the upfront stress has calmed, and things became OK. She’ll probably be best if placed in a home without other dogs and limited contact with little children – someone might grab a paw or throw himself on her.
Adoption Date: 1/19/2016
March 9th 2016:
We are happy to tell you that Lily was adopted! She is continuing with her training and enjoying life with another former GRRoW dog. Yeah for Lily.
November 23rd 2015:
Lily joined us on Sunday, November 15th. She is a very beautiful little girl. We were expecting her to be a little anxious but, so far, she has not seemed anxious at all. She likes to run and chase the ball. She does not like to get in the car—it seems like she doesn’t know how. But once she is in, she enjoys the ride. We are not sure of her experience with crates and she will not go in for a treat. We are leaving the door open and over the past few days she has been going in on occasion and lying down. It is difficult to look at that beautiful face and not fall in love with her!
November 16th 2015:
GRRoW welcomed Sweet Lily on Sunday 11/15/15. We will know more after she has a chance to settle into her foster home. She appears shy but that could just be because of all the changes. Stay tuned for more about this young girl.
Adoption Date: 4/24/2016
January 4th, 2017:
Max (16-052) is a 5-year-old (as bets we can tell) male, red golden, approximately 70 pounds. He is sturdy-built but not really overweight. Max is up to date on shots, and has recovered quickly from his neuter surgery. He has incredibly soulful eyes. His gaze can bore right into you, especially if you are holding food.
When he first arrived, he was real nervous about being left alone. Real nervous about everything, really. He sucked and chewed a hole on one of our throw pillows and lap blankets over the course of the first few days. Over time, though, he has relaxed. It took a while to get used to my dogs. My 8 year old ignores him, as he does most dogs, but my 1 year old was a real nuisance, wanting Max to ply with him. Let's just say Max didn't appreciate that. But now they can often be found laying together or walking around with a toy being held by both. I am including a photo of them cuddling (the smaller guy is my Rocket). A tummy rub is one of Max's favorite things. He respects the house rules about no dog on the bed or couch, but he will push as close as he can to the limit. He can be vocal, and is not shy about letting you know what he wants (especially when he wants to go outside). Max loves walks. Does not like the car, though (constantly whines). He is a good eater. Since he came from a home in which he had been free-fed, it took a little time to adjust his schedule to being fed twice a day, but he is now as enthusiastic as my guys about mealtimes. Max loves to walk around the house with a toy or ball in his mouth. He is a very sweet dog who can sometimes be a little needy.
"Mr. Max," as we often call him, has fit nicely into our home, but he is ready for his own forever home. I think Max would be fine with another dog, especially a mellow one. He certainly seems to have learned the routine from our goldens. Someone who is interested in a medium energy golden who likes to snuggle will be very lucky to get this guy.
---Max's foster Mom
Adopted date: February 4, 2015
March 10, 2015 Update:
We adopted Cinnamon at the beginning of February. In mid-December a Good Samaritan found her abandoned and turned her over to GRRoW. Not knowing her name her foster mom named her Cinnamon because of her coloring. It fits perfectly and she responds to it all the time. By looking at her teeth our veterinarian thinks she is three or four years old. She is very loving and wants to cuddle all of the time. She plays very well with our 8 year old golden. They love to wrestle and play tug of war. Our 14 year old golden is happy just to watch and move out of the way when necessary. Cinnamon does not like to go outside by herself or even with our other two dogs. I think that she’s afraid she’ll be left outside. Either my husband or I (or both) always go out with her. Once in a while she’ll run through the yard chasing the other dogs but most of the time she wants to go right back into the house. I’m anxious for it to warm up so we can play outside with her. I’ve tried to take Cinnamon on walks twice. It was not very successful. I don’t know if she’s ever been walked on a leash before. We just walked around the block. She pulled and wanted to go up the sidewalk and driveway to every house we walked by, I think to get inside. She did not want to be outside. She is on anti-anxiety medicine and we hope to decrease the dosage over a period of time. Cinnamon does two really cute things. First, when she wants to see what’s behind her she doesn’t turn her head right or left, she tips her head back, nose straight up. Also, she loves to lie on her back, legs up in the air. And it’s even better if she gets a belly rub. Overall this adoption has been very rewarding.

We were fortunate to be able to foster Lexi (15-033). Although somewhat cautious at first- she began to settle in right away. She bonded quickly with us and began to bond with our 2 other Goldens. Being new to living with other dogs she observed and tested the waters. Our other girls were patient and made her feel welcome. Within a couple of weeks they formed a deep bond. At that point we realized Lexi was home. She had become a part of the family and we wanted her to stay. We adopted her and continue to be amazed every day by her personality and her joy. She is such a goofball and has brought new joy and energy to our home. Thank you GRROW!

Cotton has been adopted! He is loving his new forever family.
March 19th, 2017:
Cotton has really relaxed in the past week. He has been doing well when in the house alone and is usually sleeping when I return home. He’s met a few dogs in the neighborhood with appropriate behavior and then dropped into a play bow and given the “chase me” bark! It's quite possible Cotton might enjoy having a canine sibling in his forever home. Cotton also meets new people easily, with a smile and wagging tail, but no jumping or barking, whether on the street or in response to the doorbell. This boy is going to be a great addition to the right family!
March 13th, 2017:
Cotton is a very handsome cream Retriever with a big blocky head and a gorgeous coat. At 87 pounds, he is truly a big sweetheart. Cotton arrived in his foster home a week ago. He has been settling into the routine here and I am getting to know his likes and needs. He’s enjoying long walks, morning and afternoon, and is determined to entice the cats in the household to play with him. Cotton loves car rides and travels calmly. Cotton is a very gentle dog, and has great manners. He knows basic commands and is learning to wait at stairs, doors and street crossings. Cotton has had his vet check and passed with flying colors. He does have some anxiety when home alone, but we are trying a variety of things to help him relax and cope. He is not destructive, and has the run of the house.
March 7th, 2017:
Cotton is new in foster care. More information will follow.
February 2, 2015 Update:
We have been on the waiting list for over a year, after having adopted our last golden, Maisy, from GrRow 13 years ago. Although we hadn’t asked for a girl, “Blaze” was offered to us. Blaze was found on the streets of Milwaukee and was estimated to be about three years old. We had to be very careful with an adoption because we needed to make sure both our 21 year daughter (who has autism), and Maisy were comfortable with the dog. Well, we definitely got a keeper!
Our daughter Amy decided to name our new dog Bucky, and he was responding to his new name within a few days. By the first day, Bucky quickly figured out that Maisy was the “top dog,” and Maisy seems to have accepted him without too much drama. After a day or two of hesitation, Amy became very comfortable with Bucky, and loves petting him. Our 16 year old son is thrilled because Bucky probably bonded with him first. And both my husband and I especially enjoy walking Bucky, because he is so fun to watch. We live on 36 acres, so we can let Bucky off leash, and he just bounds across the fields with so much energy and enthusiasm. Overall, we are very pleased with how things turned out and were also pleased that while our wait was long, GRRoW waited till it had just the “right” dog for us.
January 29, 2015 Update:
Just to update you that things continue to go great with Bucky. We love him and he has bonded with all four family members, and he and Maisy are doing fine with one another. We have learned the hard way that since Will let him on his bed, he’s helping himself to the other beds in the house, so we are being consistent and vigilant about it being on invite only. That might be too subtle a distinction, we’ll see. We feel really lucky to have Bucky a new part of our family! He really is a dear, and oh so gentle.
From adoptive home: The perfect fit. That's the best way I can describe Rex. From the moment he arrived, he's been a perfect addition to our household. It's no wonder we've become foster failures...Rex is here to stay forever. He loves riding in the car with me on our commutes to work, curling up for a nap in the backseat until we arrive. He's a gentle boy at the office, accepting love and scratches from my office mates before settling down under my desk. He loves daily walks around the neighborhood, sniffing all the wonderful smells and meeting all the friendly people. He adores TV "couch-time" with my 9 year old and running full out to fetch tennis balls with my 6 year old. He wiggled his way into my husband's heart and even the resident cats are warming up to him. We have been so impressed with GRRoW and the professionalism and support they provide to foster families. We never thought we'd adopt our first foster dog, but when it was a perfect fit, we couldn't say no. Rex celebrates his 6th birthday this month with a clean bill of health and a happy new home. But we are the ones who feel truly blessed to have such a wonderful Golden addition to our family. Thank you GRRoW!
November 16th, 2015:
We are happy to report that Cheddar has been adopted! Way to go Cheddar!
November 3rd, 2015:
Cheddar continues to win us over with her sweet ways. She is a Velcro golden who wants to be with people. She enjoys wrestling with our golden and playing tug of war. It is hard to believe that Cheddar is 10 years old, she has the energy of a younger golden. She has met several other neighborhood dogs and seems to gravitate more towards male dogs but given a slower introduction to females she is fine. We have been brushing up on a few of her commands (leave it, wait, down and heel) and she has done very well. She enjoys walks and is attentive. Speaking of brushing, she loves to be brushed and stands patiently. We don’t have a fully fenced in yard, so at this time she has been on a long lead in the yard. I know she would love a fenced in yard of her own but for the most part, she prefers being in the house with people. Cheddar is definitely a water dog. Although our winter cover is on the pool she has figured out that she can walk on the cover and get a little swim. Cheddar wants nothing more than to give and be loved.
October 17th, 2015:
Cheddar is an extremely sweet girl. We picked her up on Sunday and she was a perfect passenger in our car. She came into our home and immediately fit in. Two days later, she met our golden on neutral territory (a walk) and they have been buddies ever since. The first night we considered crating her but she didn’t like the crate, so we let her sleep in a separate room. After the first few days, we felt confident that there was no need to keep her separate since she gets along great with our dog and two cats. For the most part, she ignores the cats. She has full run of our home and sleeps on the floor next to our bed. Cheddar loves to be petted and scratched and follows us around the house. She knows sit and down but doesn’t always respond the first time. When we call her she comes right away. We are working on “wait” at the door. At this point, she is either in our fenced yard or on a long lead in the yard. She walks nicely on a leash but needs to be reminded that she can’t chase squirrels. Her visit to the vet showed her to be a healthy girl, although she could probably use a tooth cleaning. She had a spa day this week with a bath and trimming. Her coat is soft and cuddly – she’s a pretty girl. She is slightly overweight which can be easily corrected with diet and exercise. She is a mellow girl, who rarely barks and continually shows us affection.
August 7th, 2016:
Chloe has had a very busy several weeks in GRRoW. With 2 young kids and another dog, Chloe’s first foster home proved to be too ‘high-energy’ and stressful for Chloe, so she moved to another quieter foster home. Her new foster mom immediately fell in love with her snuggly ways and wanted to adopt Chloe, but then some unexpected changes happened and adoption was no longer an option. Chloe is now in a foster home with no dogs and no kids: She is the center of attention and she is thriving. Chloe’s “likes” are pretty simple. She is a sweet girl who loves to snuggle and get attention from her human. She LOVES her tug toy and will adore you if you play along with her. Walks are fun and treats are always welcome. Chloe would prefer to be an only dog. She is not fond of other dogs, although she is working on her dog-dog skills and making much progress. We have also gotten a better handle on Chloe’s “dislikes”: She does not like having her nails trimmed or taking a bath, nor does she like going to the vet. She also doesn’t like to be disturbed when she’s sleeping or having a favorite toy taken away. These are situations that have caused her to growl. When we listen to her letting us know she does not like these things, she quickly relaxes and all is well. Chloe is current on her vaccinations and was spayed a couple of weeks ago. We continue to work on her dog-dog skills and helping her learn to be more relaxed at the vet clinic. She is showing great strides in both areas. Stay tuned for updates on Chloe’s progress!
June 20th, 2016:
Chloe come into GRRoW at the end of May and was off to a rock start. Her first foster home was not a good fit for a stressed out pup so she moved to a quieter home. She is settling in pretty well, although there has been some guarding over toys and some dog-dog reactivity. Our foster home is getting some expert help learning to manage Chloe's behavior. Chloe loves all the attention she gets from her human; she is smart and eager to please and she loves to cuddle. Stay tuned for more updates on Chloe.
February 3, 2015 Update:
Lucy is doing very well. She's now about 84 pound and her coat is back to its full glory. The only evidence of her challenged past is the fur on her neck is a little shorter where she was shaved for her operation.
We walk at least twice a day - she holds me to our 5:30 am jaunt each weekday morning and our evening walk is typically a minimum of two miles. For weekends we have discovered the dog park and this is already established as a treat - Miss L being a total social butterfly with canines and humans alike. Plus she loves the truck ride.
Health wise Lucy is on a slightly stronger thyroid dose and her ears have settled down well and we are now on a once weekly laser regime.
The cats are quite comfortable sniffing at Lucy even though she is an attention hog and pushes in anytime they get love. The boys take great amusement in watching Lucy toss her stuffed toys in the air and race around the room with them. They will also sit on their window seats and watch with amusement as she snow plows outside. Thunder and Stormy are great lookouts too - if I have let Lucy out into the back yard to relieve herself and I walk away - they will let me know she is at the door before she does. Although I did tease Lucy last week and just waved at her through the door twice - leading to a friendly bark and then a joking protest bark when I finally let her in.
Life is good - thank you friends and thank you GRRoW.
Lucy's Forever Family.

We are happy to tell you that Cooper has been adopted! Yeah Cooper!
October 1st, 2015:
Cooper was great on his ride to his foster home and is settling in nicely. He walks beautifully on a leash-it is slack and he stays right with me. We've taken him on a walking trail in our front yard and he doesn't go after other dogs. Cooper loves attention and always wants to be petted or play with a ball or rope. He does settle and even when he lies down, he is right by us. He will be going in for his vet visit soon so we'll keep everyone updated on this handsome red boy.

Dug could not have been a better fit for our family. He is the perfect combination of playful and relaxed. His favorite times of the day include watching our boys catch and come off the school bus through our front window and laying by our feet while we read them bedtime stories. He stays by my side and keeps me company throughout the day, following me from room to room while I most often am doing laundry or taking care of our young daughter. He does have a few crazy periods though- where you'd think he could sprint a marathon, so we make sure to give him plenty of exercise (he's slowly becoming my running companion!) His anxiety issues have virtually vanished over the past few weeks with the help of positive reinforcement, exercise, and distractions (yay busy bones!) We did notice it again, however, with the thunderstorm that passed through earlier this week. Thank you GRRoW for entrusting us with this special soul. He has already managed to steal all of our hearts and become a best friend to our three kiddos.
February 26, 2017:
Dug has been adopted by his foster home family.

Dug is a super sweet boy who enjoys lots of cuddles and treats. He gets along great with our three active kids, all under the age of 10, and our 8 year old mini-schnauzer. We are currently trying to get a handle on his anxiety triggered by us leaving the house, including a bit of mouthy behavior and lots of barking and pacing/panting by using a variety of methods. After his first visit to the vet we found out that he is in great health and is a truly sweet and BEAUTIFUL boy!
