Posted Breed: Golden Retriever (long coat). Katie – Female – Age 1 year - GRRALL #0588 Katie Update 4/9/2017: Check out Katie’s new video! She did great yesterday at our Meet & Greet. We think Katie is around a year old and is a Golden-hearted mix. Her foster mom says she LOVES to be outside. She also loves lounging on her bed and playing with her Golden sibling. She also lives with a cat and does fine with him. You wouldn't be able to tell from her video, but Katie is on the shy side and fearful of loud noises and unsure of some men. We aren't sure what her past life involved, but it makes us sad seeing she was clearly mistreated. With love and hard work from her foster family, she has come a long way. Now, she's ready for her forever family who will show her love and security for the rest of her life. She is a very calm soul and needs a laid back household. If you are interested in adopting Katie please submit an application at grralliance.org/adopt ### Update 4/5/2017: Katie is doing well in her foster home and learning more every day about what it is to be loved and safe in a home with humans. She is housebroken, but when she gets scared of something she pees. She is frightened by loud/unexpected noises and needs a quiet home with someone who can be patient and gentle enough to help her blossom into a more confident girl. Katie is a sweet and affectionate girl once she knows you are safe. She gets along well with the cat in her foster home. She also gets along with the younger Golden in the home, but the senior does not care for her too much so they are kept separate from one another. Her foster mom believes that Katie could end up as best buddies with the right dog. She likes to hang out with the younger of her foster siblings and has started to bark along when the other dog barks. Katie likes to be around her people and sit quietly on her bed as they go about their business. If you are interested in adopting Katie please submit an application at grralliance.org/adopt ### Katie Update 3/19/2017: Our petite little girl Katie has made such progress since she has been with GRRALL! She struggled with kennel cough, and then was spayed, but she is on the mend both physically and mentally. Katie is only one year old but was dumped at a high kill rural shelter and is learning to trust people and believe she won’t be abandoned again. The foster family is slow and easy with Katie, letting her approach them to be loved on, and respecting her desire to go into another room when strangers visit the house. Katie is currently afraid of loud noises and her foster family is working with her to understand it is ok and part of living in a home and being loved by humans. Katie is submissive and gets along well with her canine foster siblings. At this point Katie will probably do best in a quiet house, no young children, and probably another accommodating dog for comfort and security but maybe ok as an only dog in the right environment. Katie attended her first Meet and Greet on 3/18 and did extremely well; she snuggled up to several different volunteers and was interested in the activities and was soaking in her new life. If you are interested in adopting Katie please submit an application at grralliance.org/adopt ### Welcome Katie! Katie is a one year old female, rescued from a high kill shelter in rural Texas. Our new girl will be spayed shortly, and then be ready for adoption. We will post pictures and a detailed profile on Katie as soon as we get to know her a little better. Katie needs a foster home so if you are interested in fostering or adopting her please submit an application at grralliance.org/adopt GRRALL serves the Dallas-Fort Worth/North Texas area. We do not adopt outside this region and do not ship dogs. If you are out of our area please contact your local Golden Retriever Rescue, local independent adoption groups, shelters, humane society, or other group to find your perfect forever friend.

More About Golden Retriever Breed
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.

      Posted Breed: Golden Retriever (long coat). Mia - Female - 1 year old - GRRALL #0531 Mia Update 4/17/2017: Mia is doing just great; she spent time in training and has made HUGE improvements. Her foster family learned a lot about her triggers and how to manage her anxiety so that she doesn't react in an inappropriate manner. Mia is a very sweet and loving girl and quite affectionate with her family. She needs to be an only dog, because she just really doesn't care for other dogs. She won’t be at Meet & Greets so special appointments only. She also needs a family who is willing to continue the work her foster mom has started and to make sure that introductions with people are done carefully so that Mia feels comfortable and secure. Mia is a lovely dog. She just needs someone who can understand that she isn't going to be a social butterfly and is okay with sticking with her training plan. If you are interesting in helping Mia, please submit an adoption application at https://grralliance.org/applications/adoption-application/ Mia update Nov 3 2016: MIA Update: Mia is a very sweet and affectionate girl and LOVES people. She loves to snuggle and be right by her family's side at all times. She has warmed up to her canine foster sibling over time and seems to enjoy her presence now. They like to run in the yard together and generally get along. However, Mia tends to be grouchy with other dogs, she just doesn't care for strange dogs. . She is also possessive of toys and balls. Mia would probably be great as a companion for another dog but not necessarily a playmate as she doesn’t enjoy sharing. Mia does love people; she is a love bug and likes to get up on the couch and snuggle. Mia needs an experienced and savvy owner to help her be the best dog she can be. Beautiful Mia will make a very loyal and loving companion for some lucky adopter. If you are interested in adopting Mia please submit an application at grralliance.org/adopts *** Update: Mia is making great progress adjusting to her new life of being loved and cared for and her favorite thing in the world is to snuggle on the couch next to her human. She is very affectionate with her humans and loves to give kisses. Mia is a bit intimidated by other dogs and it took her a while to get comfortable with her canine foster sibling; she will probably do best in a quiet house with no other pets. Like all GRRALL dogs, Mia needs a home where she is outside only when supervised, not left alone in the yard, especially since she has a very well-tuned alert mechanism that needs to be carefully managed to ensure no barking at other dogs or scaling the fence like an Olympic athlete. Mia is not the type of girl who would enjoy dog parks or too many new activities or people. Mia is a gorgeous young dog who knows what she wants and what she likes, and is just waiting for her forever family. If you are interested in adopting Mia please submit an application at https://grralliance.org/applications/adoption-application/ *** Welcome one year old golden mix Mia to GRRALL. This little angel is very loving and adores her foster family. She is learning to play and loves the water. Mia has been very well behaved in the house, especially for a one year old puppy. She is very gentle and once she knows and trusts her people is extremely loyal. Mia is getting along great with her canine foster sister, and just needs her own permanent family to show her what it means to be wanted and cared for. Her foster Mom says she has a beautiful soul and is a wonderful girl who just needs a family to love her. Please submit an application at www.grralliance.org/adopt to foster or adopt Mia or any GRRALL dog GRRALL serves the Dallas-Fort Worth/North Texas area.

      Breed: Golden Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Golden Retriever / Mixed (long coat). Calvin – Male – 3 years old – GRRALL #0609 Calvin is a fantastic looking 3-year-old cream colored 67 pound Golden mix. Just look at those ears! He is house-trained, crates easily, and loves to play fetch and swim. He is smart and treat driven. He knows basic commands, so a calm and patient adopter could probably train Calvin much further. Calvin startles easily at noises and needs someone who is willing to take it slow and work with him to overcome his fears. He will do best in a quiet home as an only pet, no young children, and no apartments, as Calvin can be vocal. An experienced dog owner would be a real plus for him. Calvin likes being around his people and will follow you around because he wants to know where you are all the time. He is happy to be lying on the floor by your feet. Calvin really enjoys tennis balls and playing fetch and tug of war. It’s such a delight to see him running around, playing and happy, a far cry from when GRRALL rescued him from a shelter. He also loves to swim so a pool would be a nice bonus. Our sweet boy needs a foster home or adopter. If you would like to foster or adopt Calvin please submit an application at https://grralliance.org/applications/adoption-application/ GRRALL serves the Dallas-Fort Worth/North Texas area. We do not adopt outside this region and do not ship dogs.

      Posted Breed: Golden Retriever (long coat). Miley - F - 2 years old - GRRALL #0492 Miley Update 3/1/2017: Update: Miley is such a love. She ADORES her humans and gets along wonderfully with her canine foster siblings. She is well-behaved in the house as long as her family is with her. Miley's only issue is that she gets extremely anxious when left alone. This sweet girl loves her people so much that she just can't stand to be without them! Miley is a bit of a Ho udini, she can and will find a way to escape from any crate or attempt at containment, even if she hurts herself in the process. This means that she must be left loose when her foster family leaves the house. However, she cannot be left long before she attempts to escape the house, which unfortunately results in destructive behavior. She is seeing a veterinary behaviorist (kind of like the dog version of a psychiatrist) for her anxiety and is on several medications to help her. This has provided some relief for her, but separation anxiety is still a struggle for Miley. Our special girl is going to need a special home. ### Miley is a gorgeous 2 year old golden mix. This amazing girl had a rough start in life but is on the GRRALL track now! Miley needs an experienced dog owner as she is sometimes too smart her own good. Miley has some separation anxiety issues and is improving daily but her new family will need to continue to give her meds three times a day. Miley is a very sweet girl, affectionate, and gets along well with other dogs. Miley is a free spirit and cannot be crated, she is a master escape artist, would put Houdini to shame. She must live in a house with humans home most of the time, with the heart and energy to continue to help Miley become the relaxed and adored dog she was meant to be…a permanent placement in a home with humans who will love her forever and ever.

      Posted Breed: Golden Retriever (long coat). Davis - Male – 2 years old – GRRALL #565 Update 7/26/2017: Davis is doing just great in his new foster home, just an adorable boy He is just about ready to start his heartworm treatment. If you are interested in fostering or adopting from GRRALL please submit an application at grralliance.org/adopt Update 4/30/2017: Check out this awesome video of our boy, Davis! Davis is working with a behaviorist on some fear behavior issues he's having. As you can see in the video, he is wonderful in his home environment with his awesome foster, however he is struggling with meeting new people and other dogs. We are committed to giving Davis a chance at life and exploring every avenue we can to set him up for success! As you can imagine, our bills add up ... for each dog. We save those who are in dire need of medical and behavioral help. This depletes our funds rather quickly. A visit to a specialist can easily surpass $1,000 in just one visit. Please consider making a donation today at www.grralliance.org/donate to help us continue our mission of saving Golden Retrievers and Golden-hearted mixes. ### UPDATE 3/1/2017: Davis is a sweet and loyal companion to his foster family. He just adores them, and the feeling is mutual. Davis has been working on how to manage his anxiety - he gets a bit nervous with new people and dogs and is easily startled. He's making great progress in learning how to greet other people and dogs appropriately. Davis is a playful b oy who enjoys running around his backyard. He's fully housetrained and well-behaved in the home. He enjoys hanging around with his family and being a part of whatever his people are doing. He's not quite ready for the meet and greet scene, but he's getting there! Stay tuned for more updates! If you are interested in fostering or adopting from GRRALL please submit an application at grralliance.org/adopt ### DAVIS update 1/17/2017: After just a few weeks our 2 year old boy is doing great in his foster home and quickly adjusting to being a loved family member. Davis is most definitely a people person, he loves humans, physical contact, being groomed, and of course petted. Davis would love nothing more than snuggling in bed or on the couch with his human. He is still a young boy and being trained for the first time so can get distracted, but his amazing foster family has taught him sit, down, stay, and shake. He is also house-broken. Davis is a big puppy and still learning to adjust to loud and sudden noises, jumping and mouthing, and acceptance of approved guests in the home. He hasn’t been around children and seems to like cats but he is probably too big and puppy like for most smart kitties. He also seems to like other dogs but hasn’t been in direct contact. He quickly learned the doggie door and loves to go in and out enjoying nature and playing in his big yard. An ideal home for big boy Davis would be with experienced big dog owners, willing and able to complete his obedience training, probably another dog for a playmate, humans home most of the time, structured exercise, lots of supervised outside time, and most important owners who want to kiss and cuddle and tell Davis he is a good boy and they love him to pieces!! UPDATE: Dec 28 2016: Davis wants to remind everyone he's still searching for his forever home. Davis is a 2-year-old male mix. His foster mom has been taking wonderful care of him and showing him the good life since he was pulled from the shelter. Davis is housebroken, and knows basic commands like sit, down and shake. He is super intelligent and pic ks up on things quickly. Davis is a big time lover and loves to cuddle with his people. He even would prefer to be up on the couch snuggling with you. He also adores being outside, so we would really love to see him go somewhere with a big yard to call his own. Davis becomes excited when around other dogs, but with proper training, he should be just fine. It is unknown at this time how he is with children and cats because he hasn't been exposed to them yet. Welcome Davis to GRRALL! Davis is about 2 years old, very sweet and friendly. He is a medium sized handsome boy who loves people and loves to hug. Davis is new to GRRALL; we will post updates as we get to know him better.

      Posted Breed: Golden Retriever / Great Pyrenees / Mixed (long coat). Clara* - Female – 2 years old – GRRALL #0627 Clara Update 8/25/2017: Clara was spayed earlier this week and is home now recovering. She'll be ready to attend the next meet and greet and hopefully find her forever family! Clara's foster mom says that she loves her canine foster brother and would do great with another dog, but it's not a must. She enjoys playtime with him but is otherwise a pretty chill and lazy dog. Napping is one of her favorite activities. Clara does not chase after bunnies or squirrels, so even though she hasn't been around cats yet we suspect she'd do just fine with them. Clara is a gentle girl who is a total sweetheart and friendly to everyone she meets. We did just discover that she has mild hip dysplasia. As of now, the vet has recommended joint supplements and monitoring. It is possible that down the road she may need hip surgery, but it is too early to tell whether or not things will deteriorate or if she will do just fine on joint supplements alone in the long-run. Her forever family needs to be aware and have this checked out by their vet on a regular basis to make sure she's doing okay. Keeping her at a healthy weight will also be extra important because of this. If you would like to foster or adopt any dog from GRRALL please submit an application at https://grralliance.org/applications/adoption-application/ ### 8/14/2017: Clara Update: Clara is settling into her foster home. Clara is a big girl at 79 lbs but a gentle giant. She plays well with her foster brother, a GRRALL alum who is showing her the ropes. Clara is extremely sweet, walks easily on a leash, and greets other dogs like they are best buds already. She is not a barker when guests come into her home but she does put up a little fuss when crated. Clara is very easy going and is house broken. ### 7/29/2017: MiniUpdate: Clara is heartworm NEGATIVE! Best news ever! Clara is still at the vet. This gorgeous girl may be the perfect blend of golden, GreatPyr and/or boxer, for the extra special cuteness. ### Welcome Clara to GRRALL and her new life! Clara is a gorgeous girl, about 2 years old, rescued from a high kill shelter. We don’t know much about our new girl yet, except she is sweet, loving, gives kisses, rides great in a car, and stunning. Clara will get checked out at the vet; paws crossed she is healthy and does not have heartworm disease, and then we will get our new little angel ready for her Meet and Greet debut. *Clara pronounces her name “Clah-ra” after the late great Clara Schumann, musician, composer, and pianist. We will soon learn if Clara takes after her namesake. We will post updates on Clara as we learn more about her health and personality.

      Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees / Mixed (long coat). Garfunkel – Male – 12 years – GRRALL #0617 Update: 8/23/2017: Garfunkel will be at the Meet and Greet Sat, Aug 26, from Noon-2pm at Orvis in Southlake, come on out and say hello! Garfunkel is a mellow and well-adjusted boy! GRRALL rescued this nap loving 85 pound gentleman from a rural shelter, along with his friend Simon. Garfunkel was in desperate need of spa time but we got our boy clean and fresh and sweet smelling again. If you would like to adopt Garfunkel please submit an application at https://grralliance.org/applications/adoption-application/ ### At first we thought Gar and his brother needed to be in the same permanent home but didn’t turn out to be necessary go gorgeous Garfunkel was moved and has been in his new foster home for a few days, settling in quickly. Garfunkel shares the home with the foster’s 2 dogs. He vacillates between indifference to them to wanting to be in the same room as they are. He has no interest in toys but he sure does enjoy a plush dog bed. There are several strewn throughout the house and Garfunkel spends time on each of them throughout the day. At times, Garfunkel is independent and wants nothing more than to stretch out on a dog bed in a back room, other times he takes pleasure in being in the same room as the humans and other dogs and lately he can be found on the heels of his foster mom and dad as they move from room to room. On a few occasions his foster parents catch Garfunkel sitting in front of a mirror admiring his handsome appearance. Garfunkel is a gentle giant. He wags his tail when he sees his humans approach him or enter the same room he is in. He’s started rolling on his side exposing his tummy for belly rubs. Garfunkel has full access to the house when his family is away and behaves beautifully. He lets his family know when he needs to go out by waiting by the back door. Garfunkel enjoys going for his twice daily walk. He walks well on his leash and always takes care of his business. He takes pleasure in exploring the neighborhood’s sights and scents. Garfunkel gets excited when it comes to meal time and stays close to his foster mom as she prepares his food. He politely eats his meals close to his foster siblings and then waits for his water bowl to be filled so he can quench his thirst. He has patiently allowed his foster mom to bathe him, clip his nails, trim his long paw fur and be brushed, (he definitely enjoys the brushing part of grooming). Garfunkel sleeps well during the night and only rises when his humans get out of bed. Most of the time Garfunkel saunters from one room to the next in search of a dog bed or check on his humans or foster sisters. Although, periodically when he senses it’s time to go outside or out for a walk, he’ll gallop for a few paces. He is an excellent passenger in the car and gracefully maneuvered the stairs to get in and out. It is believed that Garfunkel has very little hearing but that doesn’t slow him down. He uses his other senses to enjoy life. Garfunkel is a delight to have around. He’s a happy boy who would relish a loving home with a soft dog bed. In just a few days his foster parents have seen his personality blossom. Come meet this sweet guy! He is sure to put a smile on your face and capture your heart. GRRALL serves the Dallas-Fort Worth/North Texas area. We do not adopt outside this region and do not ship dogs.

Once Gar and his buddy Simon became comfortable in their foster home it was apparent they could be adopted separately. They needed each other during the bad times but once they were safe and loved and cared we realized they were ok separately. Garfunkel is a typical and adorable senior gentleman. His goal in life if to find the comfiest spot to nap. Garfunkel has been cleared for adoption and is ready for his new home! Garfunkel will be at the Meet and Greet this Sunday, July 9, from Noon-2 pm at the Lazy Dog Restaurant patio, Addison, Texas, 5100 Belt Line Road #500. This is at the Village on the Parkway Plaza, bordered by Beltline, Montfort and the Tollway, in the same plaza with Whole Foods, Pluckers, AMC, Neighborhood Services, Kenny's Gloria's, Hopdoddy, etc. If you would like to foster or adopt Simon and Garfunkel please submit an application at https://grralliance.org/applications/adoption-application/ ### Update 5/26/2017: Simon and Garfunkel are at the vet, and doing great! We learned these 2 pups are very bonded, probably lived together their entire lives, so must be fostered and adopted together. How great to adopt two dogs knowing they get along perfectly. So far they’ve had their expected ear infections treated, luxury spa sessions, dematted, two baths each, and they starting to feel and look better. Simon and Garfunkel are sweet dogs and possibly for the first time ever, or in years, are being treated properly. If you would like to foster or adopt Simon and Garfunkel please submit an application at https://grralliance.org/applications/adoption-application/ ### Welcome honorary golden Garfunkel to GRRALL! Gar is a gorgeous Great Pyrenees mix, beautiful greyish-brown coat, about 12 years old, and probably deaf. Garfunkel was a stray, found with his buddy Simon (#0616) and we believe these 2 friends had probably lived in the same house and were discarded together. They kept each other safe on the streets and we would be so happy if they could be fostered or adopted together. Garfunkel isn’t technically a golden but our volunteers have hearts of gold and couldn’t save Simon without also saving his brother (from another Mother) Garfunkel. Both boys are at the vet now getting a full check-up and some much needed spa time and then will be available to be fostered or adopted. More info to follow as we get to know our boys better. If you would like to foster or adopt Garfunkel and/or Simon please submit an application at https://grralliance.org/applications/adoption-application/ GRRALL serves the Dallas-Fort Worth/North Texas area. We do not adopt outside this region and do not ship dogs. If you are out of our area please contact your local Golden Retriever Rescue, local independent adoption groups, shelters, humane society, or other group to find your perfect forever friend.

      Posted Breed: Golden Retriever (long coat). Hachi – Male – 9 years old – GRRALL #0624 Update 7/29/2017: Sweet Hachi is doing better and is being moved to a foster home! Hachi was in such bad shape when rescued but after several weeks at the vet his cough cleared up and his ears are getting better. Hachi is moving to a fantastic foster home on Monday, with experienced volunteers who can provide care and TLC. We have a lot of catching up to ... do to with Hachi, he was neglected and abandoned but he has a new life now and isn't looking back! The amazing volunteer who picked him up from the shelter just visited him and took great new pictures; Hachi has a long way to go but he is feeling and looking much better. If you would like to discuss fostering or adopting Hachi please submit an application at https://grralliance.org/applications/adoption-application/ If you would like to donate towards his care, please do so at: https://grralliance.org/donate/ ### Meet Hachie, GRRALL’s new boy, dumped at a high kill shelter and rescued today. The pictures are sad but we are doing everything possible to make Hachie more comfortable while addressing his health and gross neglect issues, one by one. Hachie will make someone a wonderful companion when he is healthier, much of his current heartbreaking condition and pain/discomfort can be improved with standard pain meds, antibiotics, and cleansing/treatment of his sores. We are looking for a special foster home for Hachie, when his condition is stabilized. He will do best in a home, surrounded by people who will treat him properly, and give him the love and attention obviously lacking in his life. Hachie will be another very expensive dog to treat, so donations are always needed. It is too soon to determine the true extent of Hachie’s medical condition, but he is probably about 9 years old, cataracts, possible heart murmur, heartworm status current unknown, and cryptorchid (undescended testicles). He also has the common golden issues of ear infections and a lump we hope is just a fatty tumor. Hachie’s skin is a mess. Fleas and ticks, thankfully no mites. He already had a medicated bath and been treated with medications for the pain and itching. Despite it all, Hachie was a friendly and thankful boy who absolutely loved one of the young children he met at the vet. Hachi is aware his life is just now beginning and can’t wait to get the party started. If you would like to discuss fostering or adopting Hachi please submit an application at https://grralliance.org/applications/adoption-application/ If you would like to donate towards his care, please do so at: https://grralliance.org/donate/

      Posted Breed: Golden Retriever (long coat). Mac – Male - 6 years old – GRRALL #0619 UPDATE 7/7/2017 Mac is doing well in his foster home. He's an easy going kind of guy and is a perfect gentleman in the home. We also learned he isn't bothered by fireworks or thunderstorms, lucky boy! He will make some lucky family very happy! We recently learned Mac had an injury in the past that will require some surgery now. He tore his ACL in both back legs at some point and consultations with veterinary surgeons indicate he will need TPLO surgery in one knee now and likely in the other knee down the road. GRRALL will provide this for him, but we need some help with fundraising, as the surgery is rather expensive. If you are able, you may donate to his care via the link here: https://grralliance.org/donate/ Mac has been in a great foster home. However, after getting to know Mac better, we think he would do best with someone who is physically able to care for this big boy. At nearly 85 lbs, Mac is a big, strong guy, so he'll need a foster who can handle him, as well as a flexible schedule to take him to vet checkups and provide care related to his much needed surgery. If you are interested, please fill out a foster application here: https://grralliance.org/applications/foster-application/ If you'd like to know more about the type of surgery Mac needs, this article provides a good summary: http://www.topdoghealth.com/library/orthopedic-surgery/articles-surgery/tibial-plateau-leveling-osteotomy-tplo/ ### Mac is a 6 year old classic golden boy; happy, well-adjusted, and very handsome. Mac’s owners passed away recently and our boy needs a new home where he will continue to be loved and cherished forever. Mac’s humans were retired and took excellent care of him; his health, exercise, grooming, and lots of car rides. He went to relatives but they don’t have the time to devote to Mac and want him to have the best life possible. Mac is a big boy, about 85 pounds, heartworm negative, up to date on vaccinations, and house-trained. He knows basic commands, is bilingual English/Japanese, and needs a refresher on leash training as he has not been walked on a routine schedule since his people passed away. Mac loves food, toys, naps, playing, walks, belly-rubs, is good with adults and with other dogs. He is reported to be good with children but hasn’t been around any kids recently. There is an outdoor cat at his foster home and Mac tries to play with the kitty; she runs and he chases in fun, at least for him. Mac is a typical golden, he loves people and all things golden. He needs to lose a few pounds, and routine feeding time and walks will help with that, as will swimming if his new home has a pool. He does have the golden itchies so need to keep an eye on him to stop the licking. Mac will probably do best with people home most of the day who can shower him with attention, which will make him very happy. If you are interested in adopting Mac please submit an application at https://grralliance.org/applications/adoption-application/ GRRALL serves the Dallas-Fort Worth/North Texas area. We do not adopt outside this region and do not ship dogs.
