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.

      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.

Leah enjoys going for a walk and loves to be loved on. She is very easy dog and gets along great with foster fur-brother. If you are interested in fostering or adopting Leah please submit an application at https://grralliance.org/applications/adoption-application/ ### Welcome Leah to GRRALL! Our new girl is a Golden/Lab mix, about 8 years old, surrendered to a local high kill shelter when her people decided having a dog was too much responsibility. Leah is heartworm positive and will require treatment, simply because she was not given preventative medicine. She is super sweet and thrilled to be sprung from the shelter; she rode great in the car on her freedom ride to the vet. Leah has the typical golden personality and is happy to start her new life, but this time with people who will love and care for her forever. Leah will receive a full medical check-up, have her heartworm disease accessed and a treatment plan developed, and is already on the road to recovery. We will post more about Leah as we get to know her better. Leah will need a special foster home to keep her safe and quiet during her heartworm treatment. If you are interested in fostering or adopting Leah 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.

Davis is a sweet and loyal companion to his foster family. He just adores them, and the feeling is mutual. Davis is a playful boy 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. 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 family. He is a smart boy and has learned sit, down, stay, and shake. He quickly learned the doggie door and loves to go in and out enjoying nature and playing in his big yard. Davis can be a little nervous when meeting new people and dogs for the first time, but once he gets to know them a bit he is just fine and happy to have new friends. Stay tuned for more updates on Davis once his heartworm treatment is complete and he’s ready to find his furever home! ### Welcome Davis to GRRALL!

      Posted Breed: Golden Retriever (long coat). Buddy – Male – 7 years old – GRRALL #0621 Update 9/26/2017: Buddy is the perfect name for this boy. He is an absolute sweetheart and loves people, dogs, and even cats. He meets new people happily and although his foster hasn’t seen him around children, he is such a chill guy we suspect he’d do just fine. Buddy is a talker. When he groans or barks, he’s talking to you for attention. He does this with new folks too, as though he’s saying, “Hi there! Nice to meet you! Pet me, please.” His foster mom hasn’t heard him bark otherwise (such as at the doorbell or cars passing by, etc.). He rides well in the car and usually lies down on the floor of the back seat for the duration. He walks well on a leash. Our boy enjoys playing with and destuffing plush toys and will bring his foster mom his rope toy for a game of tug of war. He also enjoys a good chew on a Nylabone. As much as Buddy likes playing with and being around the other dogs in his home, he is his foster mom’s shadow. He wants to know where she is at all times and follows her around the house. He doesn’t like being crated, but he does just fine loose in the house when his foster mom is home. Since Buddy is such a people dog, he would do best in a home with someone there most of the day. Buddy’s epilepsy is well-managed and he has been doing great! He has only had one seizure since arriving in his foster home. He currently takes phenobarbital twice a day. The cost for the meds is about $90 for a 2-month supply. Buddy also has dry eyes that require eye drops once a day at a cost of about $45 for a 2-month supply. He takes joint supplements to help his mobility. Buddy had a procedure done to remove some lumps from his chest several weeks ago. Thankfully, they were benign but his new family will need to keep an eye on him for new lumps and bumps. If you are interested in adopting Buddy or any GRRALL dog please submit an application at https://grralliance.org/applications/adoption-application/ ### Buddy is a sweet 7-yr-old Golden with a typical Goldie personality - happy and friendly and just wants to be with his people. He came to us as an owner surrender because his human felt she could no longer care for him. Buddy spent most of his life outside but is very well-behaved in the home. He loves his foster mom and canine foster sibling and is especially fond of GRRALL alum, Belle. They love to cuddle up together. Buddy also does well with the kitties in his foster home. Our boy is a special needs guy, as he has epilepsy, but thankfully it is well controlled with medication and he hasn't had a single seizure since he's been with his foster mom!

She was thrown out of a car in South Dallas, hit by a truck, and left on the side of the road.

Our angel reached out to the incredible people @ Dallas Street Dog Advocates who worked their magic and networked Amy right into the arms of GRRALL! Our own transport angel Tricia once again dropped everything to meet Amy and transport her to the vet. It takes a pack to save just one dog, and we thank everyone who contributed to Amy’s rescue. Sweet Amy is at our vet now, safe, fed, and protected. She will receive a thorough exam, the dreaded heartworm test, and all the rest.

She is a very sweet girl and extremely loyal to her foster family. She loves affection and snuggling up with her people. She likes to be the apple of your eye and so would do best as an only dog. Mia can be a bit nervous around strangers coming into her home, but with the help of a trainer she now does quite well.Her forever family will need to follow the protocol recommended by the trainer. It's nothing complicated. The main thing is that visitors need to give her space and not approach her so that she can get comfortable with them first. Mia does need supervision even in a fenced yard, as she is quite the accomplished athlete and can scale the tall fence at her foster family's home! Beautiful Mia will make a very loving companion for some lucky adopter. Mia will be meeting qualified potential adopters via private meeting, so if you are interested in her and have an application, please let us know so we can set something up! 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.

She is very gentle and once she knows and trusts her people is extremely loyal.

      Posted Breed: Golden Retriever (long coat). Miley - F - 2 years old - GRRALL #0492 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 Houdini, in that she can and will find a way to escape from any crate or attempts 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 for 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 and 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.

Clifford loves to nap on his foster Mom’s gym bag; he adores her already, follows foster Dad around the house, and is just so happy.

Clifford was brought to the shelter on a long heavy chain, has never lived inside a house, was filthy and covered in fleas and ticks, with motor oil saturating his coat, probably from years of sleeping under cars for protection from the heat and elements. Not surprising he is HW+. Despite it all this incredibly handsome boy had a huge grin for the volunteer who picked him up, tail wagging, and as friendly as can be. We understand he is good with young children and has very good teeth, so he could be younger than our estimates. Clifford is at the vet now, clean and a/c and safe and well fed, no more outside for Clifford, except for potty and play-walk time. Clifford will get a thorough medical exam, vaccinations, and confirmation of his HW diagnosis. Spa time has already started, this boy will need many deep cleansing soaks to return him to his natural glory; we can’t wait for the after pictures. Once our boy is clean and healthy we will be looking for a foster home to care for him during heartworm treatment, with fosters always having the first rights to adopt the dog. We would love to minimize the moves for Clifford and have his foster home become his permanent home. You CAN teach an old dog new tricks and despite his past we fully anticipate Clifford will be very easy to house-train and won’t have any problems adjusting to a new life inside, with people who love and adore him, forever. If you would like to foster or adopt Clifford or any dog from GRRALL please submit an application at https://grralliance.org/applications/adoption-application/

      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. 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.
