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.

      rescue
      Breed: Boxer
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Lake Ann, MI
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Tucker is a one year boy that is the typical, happy, energetic young boxer. His prior owners did not have time for him so they decided to let us take him so we could find a home that could give him the love and attention he deserves. Tucker is a beautiful boy. He gets along well with other dogs and we would love to see him go to another home with another dog so he has a buddy to play with. But this is not a requirement. He is good with children but may be better suited with older kids. With his young energy, he might knock over a small child. We would also like to suggest that whoever adopts Tucker, takes him to an obedience class to continue to brush up on his basic obedience. He is still learning and growing and it would be very beneficial to him and the new owners. Tucker is neutered, current on all vaccines, heart worm negative and free of internal parasites. He is also micro chipped. His adoption fee is $400

      Age: Adult
      Location: Lake Ann, MI
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Lola is as sweet as they come. Loves everybody and everything. Is more of a quiet girl, but still has that sweet spunk in her. Just a bundle of love. Lola was used for breeding most of her life. When the breeder no longer could use her, he wanted to find her a new loving home that could give her the love and attention she deserved. Lola is good with all dogs and even cats. She is very good with kids as well. She is housebroken, and will be spayed and brought up to date on vaccines before being adopted. Whoever adopts this beautiful girl, will definitely be a lucky family.

      Breed: Pointer-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Lake Ann, MI
      Posted Breed: Pointer / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Casey is about four years old, and appears to be a Terrier / Pointer mix. She is in good health, housebroken and good with other dogs. Her original owner says that she is good with kids and cats too. She is a sweet and funny girl, with a mature energy level, playful but not crazy. She can be crated or left loose when her people aren't home, without accidents or chewing up household items. She does cry and bark some when first left alone. She would do best with a home where she is not left alone for long periods of time. Casey likes affection, likes to chase a ball, and likes to snuggle and wrestle with people and other dogs. She likes to nap with her people when allowed. She is a mature dog, and does not require constant attention. She is full of personality and is a very sweet girl. She is fully vetted and microchipped. She is temporarily living in a home in Shelby Twp, MI with her foster dad and two other dogs.

They were no longer able to care for her and thankfully we had room to bring her into our group. She was about 20lbs underweight and a very shy/timid girl.

She enjoys being with another dog and is good with kids of all ages. She even is good with kitty cats. Ruby is very affectionate and a very well behaved girl that just wants a kind hand to pet her and show her lots of love. She wants to please you and listens very well to what you ask of her. She is crate trained and likes to go for car rides. She really enjoys licking the wire egg beaters from the mixing bowls. So if you like to cook, Ruby will help you clean up !!

      Breed: Boxer
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Lake Ann, MI
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Jesse was an owner surrender to the shelter. His prior owner just did not have enough time for him and did not realize that a young boxer had so much energy. Jesse is a great boy !! He is the typical boxer boy. Jesse would do best with either just female dogs or as the only dog. He would do best with a home that does not have cats. He would do good with middle age to older kids as he is a larger size boy. He does great on walks, knows basic commands, (can sit, stay, wait, lie down, off, get your ball) and even knows to "kennel up" or "bedtime". He sleeps quietly all night in his kennel. He did develop Kennel Cough, but with antibiotics, it has cleared everything up. Jesse would do good in a home where he had a yard he could exercise and run around in. He loves playing with his ball and would love for somebody to throw it for him quite often. He is 3 years old, neutered, current on all vaccines, heartworm negative and free of internal parasites. He is also micro chipped. Jesse's adoption fee is $350

      rescue
      Breed: Boxer
      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.

      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier-Labrador Retriever Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Lake Ann, MI
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Chance was sitting at GCAC for a pretty long time. Nobody was willing to help this boy and his time was running out. So we brought him into our group. Upon going to the vets, we discovered he was heart worm positive. So Chance is currently going through treatment right now. Once he goes through treatment at the end of December, he will be neutered about a month or two after that. Chance is a younger boy. About a year and a half. He is a very sweet boy with a great disposition. He adjusts very easily to his surroundings and listens very well to what you ask of him. He LOVES to play with other dogs. And loves to play with toys. He is good with cats and kids and is really partial to women. Women are his soft spot. He is a bit unsure at times with some men, so if you are interested in him, we would suggest you spend ample time with him to make sure their is a connection. His foster mom says he is a very snuggly, loyal boy. He is very smart and responds extremely well when you ask something of him. He has a gentle soul and soft eyes. Always alert on his senses. If he hears something, he will let you know. He has a gift too.....if someone don't seem safe to him, he barks and tells you. He just wants to be by his humans He doesn't jump. He loves kids. He is a submissive boy and would do good with a calmer dog but does love to play with anybody willing to play with him. He will be neutered before being adopted, he is current on all vaccines, free of internal parasites and is micro chipped. 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 APRIL 2017. Please check back for further updates. 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. 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.

      Location: Lake Ann, MI
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). 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. She is about 8 years old, and a boxer mix. 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 bloodwork looks great. Cherish is about 8 years old, spayed, current on vaccines, heart worm negative and free of internal parasites. She is also micro chipped. Her adoption fee is $100

      Sex: Male Male

      Location: Lake Ann, MI
      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
