Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Stewie is an awesome boy. He was born January 2012. He is very friendly, has moderate energy, LOVES to go for car rides, enjoys chewing his bones, playing with his balls and loves the good ole butt and back scratches. Stewie can be a "rough" lover at times. He doesn't mean to get overly excited with some loving, but he just gets very happy with his pettings. He knows all basic commands and is great with obedience, he is so very smart !!!!! Stewie also knows how to kiss on command ! Stewie needs to be the only pet (no cats, no dogs) in the household. This is not to say he is dog aggressive, he simply is too rough for the majority of dogs and can get possessive of food and toys. If there are any kids in the house, they should be old enough to participate in dog care and able to follow directions. Stewie even has his one Face Book fan page : stewie adopt me. Go check out some more great pictures of this guy !!! Adoption fee for Stewie is $75.00

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Lake Ann, MI
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). LOOK AT BEEFCAKE !!! This boy is as precious as he looks !!! He ended up in a shelter where his time was running out - quickly. We could not pass up this boy and brought him into our group. Upon getting him a medical evaluation, it is determined that he needed his luxating patella repaired with surgery. Surgery was performed on March 14th at Heritage Vet. He was also neutered at the same time. He was being treated for a bad case of kennel cough but is all healed up and the infection is gone. His foster mom says he is THE SWEETEST BOY and has personality PLUS !!! He likes to "talk" to her and loves to be petted. He does great with other dogs and would be really good with kids, but he is NOT fond of cats. They look to tasty to him. He LOVES playing with toys, especially the ones that squeak and running around in the back yard. He is housebroken, crate trained and loves going bye-bye. He is more on the calmer/quieter side but still likes to enjoy a good run in his foster moms back yard and going for a quick jog. Upon adoption, he will be neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative and cleared of any internal parasites. He is also microchipped. His adoption fee is $250

      Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Tucker was left at the shelter by his owners. His time was running out and we knew we could help this boy so we welcomed him into our group. Tucker is about 2 years old and is very pleasant with people. He has a sweet temperament. He gets along well with other dogs but not with cats. He would do fine with older kids. He does love to cuddle and curl up on his bed and just hang out. He enjoys having his head rubbed and his chest rubbed also. He really is not a licker but will occasionally get in your face looking for some extra loving. Tucker is a pretty clean dog and does not get into anything in the house nor does he chew any furniture or anything else up. Tucker is a smart boy and responds real well to verbal communication and knows when you are telling him NO or encouraging him, regardless of the command. He loves to go for a jog or a nice walk and is very good on a leash. He likes to watch the squirrels run all over with a very keen look, but will recall easy when you tell him, no. He is crate trained and is not much of a barker. He also enjoys going for car rides and looks forward to his mom putting him in the car so they can go to the park for some exercise and play time. Whoever adopts Tucker, we will recommend that they take him to obedience class to continue to improve on communications with him and to help with the bonding between him and the adopter. When Tucker went to the vets, after he came into our group, it was discovered. he had A LOT of crystals in his urine, which the vet feels was caused by his poor diet. This was also causing him to have frequent urination issues. He was also put on some antibiotics as well. Left untreated, he could have develop urinary stones, but we caught the infection in time. He was also treated for whipworms. Tucker is neutered, current on vaccines, heartworm negative and is free of internal parasites. He is also micro chipped. His adoption fee is $150.

      Breed: Boxer-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Lake Ann, MI
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat). This boy was in a shelter for several weeks and when we first got him, he was scared of everything and would coward a lot. He was even terrified sometimes of being touched. We are thinking he may have been abused prior due to his fear. But his foster mom has been working with him, letting him know he will receive gentle and kind hands that pet him, and he has slowly been getting better. He was also very emaciated when he arrived at the shelter but between the shelter and his foster mom feeding him good food, he is looking so much more better. Gus does great with other dogs and even cats. He does love to run around his foster moms back yard and play with anybody who will play with him. We think Gus would do better with older kids or at least kids that might be more on the calmer side, at least until he gets to know them. Gus does have a great personality and really wants to please. He is housebroken, crate trained and likes to be goofy or just crawl into your lap with you and say HI. Nice gently rubbins is what he likes the most. Gus is neutered, current on all vaccines, heart worm negative and has been treated for worms. He is also microchipped. His adoption fee is $150

      Breed: Boxer
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Lake Ann, MI
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). LUCKY WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION AT LEAST UNTIL MAY 20, 2017. Lucky came to us as an owner surrender. They were not financially able to continue to take care of his medical needs so they reached out to us. They made a great decision because this boy is going to be treated like a king and get all healthy before he is adopted. He came to us with a really bad skin infection and was heartworm positive. His skin was a complete hot mess and had a yeast infection all over his body, along with secondary rashes. His foster parents says the boy is such a gem and he is so funny with his facial expressions and his personality. He is a very easy going, laid back boy that loves to just hang out with whoever will bless him with their time. He loves everybody and everything. He is great with kids and dogs, but not so much with cats. He thinks they are too fun to chase. He is a very calm and friendly boy. His foster mom says he is PERSONALITY PLUS with how he is. Just a wonderful, fabulous boy all the way around. Lucky is housebroken, great on a leash and with his basic obedience. He will be neutered before he is available to be adopted. He is current on all vaccines, and was treated for internal parasites. He is also micro chipped.

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Lake Ann, MI
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Rufus is a big lover !!! He was an owner surrender as they were retired and wanted to travel. So we were very happy they contacted us so we could find Rufus his new family. Rufus is about 8 years old. This boy has some real personality and still has quite a bit of energy and loves to go for walks and car rides. If you want to see Rufus smile with happiness, just ask him if he wants to go for a ride. He also loves to cuddle and be your lap dog too. He is like one big teddy bear - all 76lbs of him. He listens very well when you ask him something. He is very eager to please you and loves anybody that will pet him. Very friendly guy. When Rufus came to us, we did perform a dental on him and extracted a few teeth as they were in bad shape. The vet also removed some gum tissue as well due to some overgrowth. He also had some kind of an infection going on one of his rear legs, but with antibiotics, it cleared up nicely. We also did a urinalysis on him, just to be sure he did not have a current UTI - he was good there. And all of his bloodwork came back in great shape. Rufis is housebroken, crate trained, good with cats and kids. He is good with small dogs, but feels a bit intimidated by dogs that are his size or bigger. He is neutered, current on vaccines, heart worm negative and free of internal parasites. He is also micro chipped.

      Location: Lake Ann, MI
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Abby was an owner surrender as Abby was displaying some anxiety issues and the owner just did not have time for her. Upon coming into our rescue, she is doing much better and we discovered that she would benefit greatly from having another dog around her for company and to play with. She would also benefit if somebody was at home at bit more as well. She is about 3 years old and gets along with kids as well but definitely NO CATS for her. She is heart worm positive and is currently going through treatment right now. She is crate trained, housebroken, loves going for car rides and listens pretty well when you ask her to do something. She is a beautiful girl that just wants to be accepted and loved and knows that she is safe. She is spayed, current on vaccines, will be heartworm negative prior to being adopted, and has been dewormed. She is also microchipped as well. Her adoption fee is $350

      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Gracie will be on hold at least until May 1st. Her foster mom is working on helping her to feel secure and to trust people. She has alot of insecurities right now and needs one-on-one special attention to help her overcome her being scared and her levels of stress and to socialize her more. Please check back later for more updates as time goes on. Gracie was at a shelter before we brought her into our group. She was found as a stray. She is about 3 years old and can be a happy and playful girl when she feels safe. We believe she would do better with a dog that is a bit more submissive and kids over 12 years old. Gracie is a complete doll and has the cutest underbite. She LOVES her belly rubs. She is spayed, current on all vaccines, heartworm negative and has been treated for worms. She is also microchipped. Her adoption fee is $200.

      Posted Breed: Boxer / American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Whitley will be on hold at least until May 1st so we can continue to work with her on leash training and obedience and living in a house. Whitley's story started out with a really bad beginning. She was turned into the shelter at a very young age and remained at the shelter for OVER TWO YEARS. We discovered she was there about 6 months ago and whenever we tried to bring her into our group, another emergency came up and we still were not able to pull her from the shelter. Finally one day, it happened. A foster home opened up and was given her very own freedom ride. Finally. Becuz she was in the shelter for so long and since she was a young girl, we realized she needed some work with manners and basic obedience. But this girl is well worth it. She is really an over all easy going girl that doesn't let too much bother her. Thats probably how she mentally survived in the shelter for so long. She gets along GREAT with other dogs and we feel she would do best with older kids. No Cats for this girl though. Too tempting to chase. She loves to play with toys and is just a super happy girl. After being in the shelter for so long, we can only imagine how grateful she is !!! She has been spayed, current on vaccines, heartworm negative and been treated for worms. She is also microchipped. Her adoption fee is $100.

      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). A note from Kane's foster mom........Are you looking for a very special dog to add to your home? Kane just might be right for you. Kane has been with us since January 2016 and his foster mom says this boy really has a zest for life that just touches your heart. This boy has been through so much but continues to love every minute of his life. Grab a toy and he is ready to play. Get his leash and he will walk anywhere with you. (Needs a little work in this area as he pulls a bit from excitement) Want to cuddle on the couch ? yep you got it ! He is all for it. He does wear diapers when he is not in his crate or outside but he doesn't mind at all. He stands and lets me put them on! You see Kane is eager to please. So if you have a special spot in your heart for a dog that has had a rough start you might want to consider meeting Kane. Kane LOVES playing with other dogs and is great with kids, even small kids. He is a very easy going boy. He is charming, sweet, funny and always happy-go-lucky. He is neutered, current on all vaccines, heart worm negative, free of internal parasites and is micro chipped. His adoption fee has been sponsored as we are just looking for that really special home that will give this boy so much love and understand his medical needs. Now, a brief description of what is going on with Kane's medical..... He had bladder stones removed in 2015 and was leaking urine, even after having the bladder stones removed. Due to the leakage, Kane's prior owners made him an outside dog. Soon after, he was surrendered to a shelter who contacted GLBR. After numerous tests, seeing the specialists at MSU and surgery, among several other doctors, the doctors have come to the conclusion that Kane's urinary leakage cannot be fixed. Fortunately he is very happy and comfortable wearing doggie diapers! Kane is also prone to urinary tract infections which will need to be carefully managed. Yes, he has some medical issues, but the bottom line is this boy is WORTH the extra effort and any family who adds Kane into their home will be SO lucky!! He has handled all of his doctor visits with a smile and everyone raves about how wonderful he is. Kane is with a foster home who loves him very much, but he can't stay there forever. Kane deserves to find himself a permanent loving home, so let's share his story to help him get there

      Breed: Boxador
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Lake Ann, MI
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Her Royal Highness, Charley Ann, is in search of a new kingdom to call home. She enjoys being pampered, adored, fawned over and waited on hand and foot. She requires a home with soft beds, ample hands for petting and scratching, as well as servants who are ready to tend to her every whim. Toys are a must - all varieties will be accepted, although she is most entertained by balls, food dispensing toys and un-stuffing squeaky toys. In order to best enjoy her new home, HRH Charley requests to be the only pet and to live with older, respectful children. She will provide her loyal subjects with plenty of love, companionship, laughs, tail wags...and the occasional snore-fest. A lady never reveals her true age or weight, but we will let you in on her secrets...She is about 8-9 yrs young and around 50# Cherish was sitting in a shelter for a couple of months and was not handling it too well. So we brought her into our rescue. Cherish is a HAPPY, HAPPY girl and is very appreciative and happy with anything she gets. She listens very well and is very responsive to correction. She would do best as either the only dog or possible with an older dog, like herself, that are more laid back. She doesn't care for the bouncy, active dogs and will ignore them for the most part, unless they get into her space or antagonize her. She would probably do best with older kids too. Her foster mom says she can be a sassy girl and thinks she is a princess at times. She does listen well but there are times she may become stubborn and you have to remind her that she is not in charge. Cherish does have some arthritis in her spine and hips and will need to be on a joint supplement for the rest of her life. She may also need some pain meds now and then, depending on how she is feeling. But other than that, she is a very healthy girl and all of her blood work looks great. Cherish is spayed, current on vaccines, heart worm negative and free of internal parasites. She is also micro chipped. Her adoption fee is $50
