Posted Breed: Golden Retriever (long coat). Katie – Female – Age 1 year - GRRALL #0588 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.

Rebel – Male – 4 years old – GRRALL #0578 Update 3/1/2017: Update 3/1/17: Rebel's heartworm treatment is well underway and he is doing great! It won't be too long before he is adoption ready. Rebel's foster mama says he is the BEST boy! He gets along well with people, dogs, and cats, and is a total sweetheart.

Our boy Rebel is about 4 years old, and unfortunately heartworm positive. This sweet and adorable guy will get adjusted to his foster home and then start on heartworm treatment.

      Posted Breed: Golden Retriever (long coat). Rusty – Male – Age 2 years - GRRALL #0583 Update 2/23/2017: Update 2/23/17: Rusty is finally 100% over his kennel cough. That was probably the worst case we've ever seen and we are so relieved that he is feeling better. Now that he's all healthy, his neuter will be scheduled and he'll soon be adoption ready! Rusty has been doing wonderfully in his foster home. He gets along with anyone and everyone - men, women, children, cats, dogs...you name it, he likes it. He doesn't even bother chasing squirrels in the yard, he's such a chill dude. Rusty does have a bit of a penchant for chewing shoes and other things, so he still needs appropriate supervision and help learning what is and is not okay to chew. His foster mom says he does very well with redirection. Rusty is a big cuddlebug who would love a family who is home much of the time and who will give him all the love he deserves. We can't wait to find Rusty his perfect forever home! ### Rusty Update: 2/7/2017: WHEW!!! Rusty is starting to feel better and has started to eat! We are thrilled. Rusty was at the vet, lethargic and depressed, coughing, no appetite, and just heartbreakingly sad. Good vet care, a foster home, and extra TLC seem to have done the trick. Paws crossed, but just look at Rusty’s happy face now. He is a young boy and the worst should be behind him now. Updates to follow as our boy Rusty recovers fully…and his full puppy personality starts to unfold, with the sneaker being a hint at what is to come for our handsome guy. RUSTY UPDATE: 2/4/17: Rusty is about 2 years old and 58 lbs. He is still at the vet recovering and unfortunately not doing very well right now. Thankfully he is heartworm negative but still coughing quite a bit, has a slight fever, and no appetite. An amazing volunteer spent quite a bit of time with him and says poor Rusty is depressed, he just wanted to snuggle and be petted and loved. He is a total sweetheart. Rusty is a classic case of neglect and ended up at a high kill rural shelter, yet despite it all he loves people and is a good boy and wants so bad to get healthy and be the puppy he was meant to be. Rusty will be going to his foster home in a few days, thank goodness for foster families, and we hope Rusty’s spirits will improve once he is in a home, maybe for the first time ever. We will keep you posted on Rusty’s progress. ### Rusty is an extremely handsome golden boy, rescued from a local shelter. We will post better pictures soon but even with bad pictures easy to see he is a stunning boy, with the typical golden grace and personality. Stay tuned for more information about Rusty. Rusty needs a foster so if you are interested in fostering or adopting from GRRALL please submit an application at grralliance.org/adopt GRRALL serves the Dallas-Fort Worth/North Texas area.

      Sex: Male Male

      Location: FORT WORTH, TX
      Posted Breed: Golden Retriever / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Roy - Male - 3 years old - GRRALL #0587 Update: 3/6/2017: Roy is still very skinny and is working on putting on some weight, but he is in such great shape compared to when he first arrived in rescue! His bite wounds are all healed up and the fur is beginning to grow back, which will cover his scars. This poor guy went through so much in his prior life, but he is nothing but sweet and happy. We love our Roy boy! ### Update 02/10/17: Roy is settling well at his foster home. Before leaving the vet, his foster dad did a quick visit with one of the clinic cats, and Roy was reportedly curious but not aggressive. He seems to get along with his canine foster siblings. His mom says he is a total sweetie. She also said he is like a big goofy puppy, complete with puppy lope when he runs. Sadly, we suspect th at Roy may have been used as a bait dog by dog fighters (a bait dog is used to train the fighters to attack). But sweet Roy isn't letting that awful history get in the way of his good and loving nature. He is going to make some family a wonderful forever companion. Roy needs a foster home so if you are interested in fostering or adopting Roy, or any GRRALL dog, please submit an application at grralliance.org/adopt #### Roy is the epitome of Rescue. He is a handsome 3 year old boy, covered in bites to his legs and ears, and saved by the amazing and caring staff at Dallas Animal Services (DAS). GRRALL has now taken this boy into our program and we will ensure the best care possible for his wounds, and find him a foster home where he will be safe, loved, and treated like the big puppy he was meant to be. Through all the bites and the trauma Roy still has an amazing personality, so trusting and ready to move on to the next, and best, part of his life. He is about 63 pounds and needs to gain some weight, with good quality food on a routine schedule. Thankfully he is heartworm negative. We will post updates on Roy and he heals. Roy needs a foster home so if you are interested in fostering or adopting Roy, or any GRRALL dog, please submit an application at grralliance.org/adopt GRRALL serves the Dallas-Fort Worth/North Texas area.

      Posted Breed: Golden Retriever (long coat). Dez - Male - 2 years old - GRRALL #0594 Update 3/9/2017: Dez is a young guy at around 2 years old and about 60 pounds. He's neutered, heartworm negative, microchipped and most importantly, READY FOR HIS NEW HOME! Dez is very dog friendly and gets along swimmingly with his 3 Golden canine siblings. He mastered the doggie door within a few min utes and is housebroken. He hasn't been exposed to cats or children that we are aware of, but we see no warning signs he wouldn't be ok with them. That is what home visits are for Mr. Dez doesn't like to let his foster mom or dad out of his sight. It seems he has a fear of being abandoned again. Well, that will not be the case this time! An adopter who's home most of the day with him would be ideal. His foster mom said he whined a bit when she left, but he did settle down. She says he is a "super dog" and is going to make a person or family VERY happy! If you're interested in adopting Dez or any of our available pups, please fill out an application at www.grralliance.org/adopt. Please remember we only adopt to those living in the DFW metroplex (Dallas, Tarrant and immediate adjacent counties).

      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.

      Breed: Golden Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Baby
      Location: FORT WORTH, TX
      Posted Breed: Golden Retriever / Mixed (long coat). Oliver - Male - 5 months old - GRRALL #0580 3/23/2017: Update: Oliver's foster mom shared this cute video of his bedtime routine. Every night he waits patiently for his bedtime treat. As soon as his foster mom says, "Let's go to bed!" Oliver and his foster siblings run to the bedroom and Oliver waits for his mom in his crate. He is such a good boy! And adorable to boot! We can't believe Oliver hasn't found his family yet. He is one awesome dog! As you can see, he is very well-trained for a puppy and is a smart boy. He knows sit, down, an d shake, and comes when called. He LOVES to cuddle and is friendly with everybody. He is looking for a home with another dog, as he would love a playmate and needs the companionship of a dog to help him boost his confidence and feel secure. Since Oliver is still a goofy puppy and a big boy already at 55 lbs. (and getting bigger every day!) young children would not be a good match for him, as he could easily knock them down. Puppy adopters must live in a home with a fenced yard. A height of at least 6 feet is required for this big guy. If you are local to DFW and are interested in adopting, please fill out an adoption application here: grralliance.org/adopt You can find more cute pictures and info about Oliver in our Available photo album on Facebook. ### Oliver was one of three puppies found on the side of the road by a Good Samaritan. She was driving along the highway and saw a mama Golden and two puppies running along the road, so close to being hit. She pulled over and tried to coax them to her, but was only able to get the two puppies to come to her. Mama ran off, so she put the puppies in her car and went to search for t he mom. While searching she saw another, smaller puppy in the ditch unable to move. Oliver was that puppy. She scooped him up and called us for help. Sadly, the mama dog was never found. We can only hope that some other kind-hearted person was able to rescue her. One of our volunteers met her at the emergency vet. All three dogs were emaciated and dehydrated and covered in fleas. Little Oliver was so dehydrated he required overnight IV fluids. Who knows how much longer he could have survived if his rescuer hadn't saved him. Oliver came to us shockingly thin and very, very timid. Through the love and wonderful care of his foster family he has grown into a healthy puppy who is growing like a weed! His confidence is also growing daily. He was initially too afraid to go outside in the dark by himself, showed no interest in toys or playing, and was so scared the first time the resident cat hissed at him that he peed all over himself! Now Oliver has learned the joy of play and loves his toys. He's learned that kitty isn't quite so scary and is a good doggie brother to the cat and his canine foster siblings. Oliver is a big time snuggler. He LOVES his people and wants to be with them and cuddled up as much as he can. Oliver would likely do best in a home where someone is there most of the time and with at least one other doggie companion, as the other dogs help him with his confidence. He'd probably also enjoy a dog who'd like to play with him, as his foster siblings are older and aren't as interested in puppy play time. He is doing very well with his training and seems to be a smart boy who is food motivated. Oliver will be a BIG boy once fully grown. He is going to be a wonderful family member for a very lucky adopter! Puppy applicants must have a 6' fence, be home a good amount of the time to provide the puppy with proper play time and potty breaks, and live in a home with a yard (no apartments for puppies). If you are interested in adopting Oliver, please submit an application at https://grralliance.org/applications/adoption-application/. Please note that we serve only the Dallas-Fort Worth area and are not able to do out of area adoptions.

      Posted Breed: Golden Retriever / Mixed (long coat). Lyric - Female - 3 months old - GRRALL #0586 Update 3/16/2017: Little Lyric is still looking for her forever family! Lyric is about 3 months old and cute as a button. She's a little girl and will be small when fully grown. Her foster family thinks she may be a Jack Russell mix. She's what we like to call Golden at heart.She loves to bounce around and play, play, play! She gets along well with dogs and cats and would love to have another dog or kids to play with in her new home. Since she is still a puppy, she needs a home where someone is there most of the time. Lyric will be making an appearance at this weekend's meet and greet, so come out and say hello to this cutie! If you are interested in adopting Lyric, please put in an application at https://grralliance.org/applications/adoption-application/ ## Everyone meet Lyric!!! Little Lyric is approximately 2-3 months old and weighs in at 13 pounds, but don't let her little size fool you! This little diva is full of personality and energy. We would love to see her be adopted to someone who has another dog to play with and/or kids to help wear her out. We also would like someone who's home most of the time, as she is a puppy and needs regular potty breaks. She loves to play and snuggle, and she has fit right in with her (large) Golden foster siblings and made friends with the kitty. As far as what she's mixed with, who knows! Her foster thinks she may have some Jack Russell Terrier and/or Collie in her. She will likely be on the smaller side, but no way to know for sure. Because she is too young for spay surgery, Lyric's adoption fee is $400, which includes a $100 refundable spay deposit. Most choose to donate the additional $100, but that is ultimately up to the adopter. She is microchipped and will receive the remainder of her puppy shots prior to adoption. As a reminder, we do NOT adopt dogs under the age of two to apartment or townhouse dwellers. You must also have a securely fenced yard at least 4' high (preferably taller), and reside in the DFW metroplex. All your current pets must be up-to-date on ALL vaccinations, wellness exams, and heartworm tests. All pets must also be spayed or neutered, unless there is a medically-verifiable reason for it. Please review our FAQ section on our website BEFORE submitting an adoption applications. As a reminder, we are a group solely comprised of volunteers...We all either work full-time, have families of our own, and other responsibilities. We review all applications and our adoption coordinator will respond to you as soon as she is able.

      Posted Breed: Golden Retriever (long coat). Brazos – Male – 3 years old – GRRALL #0536 UPDATE 3/1/2017: Brazos is a handsome, young Golden mix who has been working hard on his manners. He is currently with our consulting behaviorist doing board and train. This guy was probably never given much attention from humans, so he never learned how to behave. However, he is making great progress! His trainer says he is a very energetic boy who will need a home with someon ... e who is willing and able to get him lots of exercise. He might make a good running buddy, for example. He also needs an experienced dog owner who will be able and committed to continue with his training. Brazos' ideal home would be just him and his humans - no other dogs, cats, or children, please. Stay tuned for more updates as he continues to progress in his training! ### UPDATE: Jan 30 2017: Brazos desperately needs a foster home! Please help to spread the word. He is currently doing board and train with a behaviorist. His ideal foster home would have no other dogs. He needs an experienced person who is able and willing to help him learn some manners - provide him with LOTS of exercise. He deserves someone who will give him a chance and work with him to help him become a better dog. Could that person be you? If so, please fill out a foster application at https://grralliance.org/applications/foster-application/. If you can't help by fostering or adopting, please share this post to help find Brazos' person. We know he/she is out there somewhere UPDATE: Nov 15 2016: I DESPERATELY NEED A FOSTER OR ADOPTER ASAP!!! Brazos wants to to plead his case for a foster or adopter. In a nutshell, Brazos has been with us since July. He worked with our trainer for a bit and has been in boarding ever since. Brazos has a very high energy level and is a large dog around 80 lbs, so he would need someone who could handle his size. He also has issues with impulse control, but we feel a lot of his behavio ... r is due to being cooped up in boarding for so long. Who wouldn't start to be affected by that? Brazos is around 2 years old and is neutered and ready to go. He needs to go to someone who is active and would exercise him frequently, and has no cats or small children, as he would likely knock them down. He has been iffy with certain dogs. We think he would do ok with another very submissive, calm dog, but it would be even better to find someone without any other dogs. He also should go to someone with a house with a yard (no apartments or condos for this guy). We know this is a long shot, but poor Brazos deserves better than this. He deserves someone who will give him a chance and work with him to help him become a better dog. Could that person be you? If so, please fill out a foster application at https://grralliance.org/applications/foster-application/. If you can't help by fostering or adopting, please share this post to help find Brazos' person. We know he/she is out there somewhere Brazos is a male golden mix, about 3 years old. Brazos is full of life and energy, he is very friendly and loves to run and play. This sweet boy is very smart and just needs an adopter who will be his permanent home, for real this time. Brazos needs a foster home so if you are interested in helping this gorgeous young man on his way to a forever (and ever) home, or are interested in adopting him, please submit an application at www.grralliance.org/adopts GRRALL serves the Dallas-Fort Worth/North Texas area.

Looking at his before and after pictures (see comments), you can't even tell it's the same dog! From shockingly thin, anemic, and weak, to healthy and happy...it's a HUGE change. Huggins is undergoing heartworm treatment now that he is healthy enough fo ... r it, and thankfully that is going well. He may need surgery and a biopsy for an ear polyp, but we're hoping that will be no big deal. Huggins is a very loyal boy who loves his foster family. He may do best as an only dog, as he likes to have his foster mom all to himself. His foster family has done such a wonderful job caring for him, and they can't wait to help him find his forever home. If you are interested in adopting Huggins, or any GRRALL dog, please submit an application at grralliance.org/adopt ### Huggins Update: 2/6/2017: Wow, looks at Huggins now! Huggins has been with GRRALL for 7 months (!!) now and is finally healthy enough to start his heartworm treatment. Our boy came into GRRALL an emaciated mess, fleas, ear infections, heartworm positive; dumped and forgotten, until an amazing group of volunteers, and loving foster family, stepped in to help Huggins. He is thriving now and although it breaks our hearts for him to endure heartworm treatment, it is the last step on his journey to health and a permanent home. We will post updates on his progress, but Huggins is the reason we stress the importance of heartworm prevention, beg for donations, and then all smile wide with contentment when we see the results of our labors. If you are interested in adopting Huggins, or any GRRALL dog, please submit an application at grralliance.org/adopt ### UPDATE: 12-20-2016: Hugging is doing great!! Our boy continues to put on very much needed healthy weight and he is up to 71 lbs now, almost unrecognizable from the emaciated boy rescued several months ago. Huggins is healthy enough now to be scheduled for heartworm treatment, which will start after the holidays. He is a very playful and energetic boy, and continues to make great strides learning how to be a much loved and adored family member. UPDATE: 12-2-2016: Huggins came to us back in August, completely emaciated and anemic. Look at how pitiful his "before" picture is...but now look at him! Huggins' foster mom has worked very hard with him and helped him put on 10 pounds, bringing him up to 66 pounds of furry cuteness! Huggins has learned to sit and shake hands. He loves to play catch with the tennis ball and will even bring it back to you! He's still working on the release part, though. He ge ... ts along well with dogs AND cats. We don't think he has spent much time around kids because he gets very excited around them, and will jump, paw, and be mouthy, but they are working on that. It's clear Huggins wasn't initially used to being indoors, and sometimes he prefers to be with people, just not right next to them all the time. Huggins is a happy guy who loves life and would love to share his zest for life with the perfect adopter! Huggins will not be available for adoption for a little while longer. Unfortunately, he is heartworm positive, and will likely start treatment in January. We will accept applications for him now, so if you're interested in Huggins or any of our available dogs, please fill out an adoption application at www.grralliance.org/adopt. Update: 10-4-2016: Looking great!!! New picture! Look who it is! It's Huggins! Huggins came to us from the shelter completely emaciated and anemic. He was also very fearful. After weeks at the vet and time with our behaviorist, Huggins is happily in a foster home. He is thriving and as you can see, he is getting closer and closer to a healthy weight. Huggins is a 2.5 year old male and has already been neutered. Unfortunately, he is heartworm po ... sitive, but his fantastic foster is going to take him through treatment and he will be ready for adoption once he's cured. His foster lovingly describes him as a "diamond in the rough." He's great with other dogs AND cats, very affectionate, but could use some training to learn some manners and boundaries. He loves being with people and is adapting very well considering all he's been through. We'll post more on Huggins once his heartworm treatment is complete and he's available for adoption. If you're interested in adopting Huggins or any of our other available dogs, please fill out an application at www.grralliance.org/adopt Update from NTGD: 9-22-2016: Huggins is one of our current dogs in our program. He came to us in August from the Tyler shelter, severely emaciated, riddled with infections of the skin and ears, and anemic. He has been under the care of our vet since August trying to get him healthy again. We just got word last week that our vet was finally able to get his anemia under control. However, he is under-socialized and fearful. Huggins will be working with our dog behaviorist and will go into foster care when i t is determined he is ready. To date, we have spent $1,486 getting Huggins healthy and on the path to be adoption-ready. This number is a moving target because Huggins is still in our care, and we are not sure how long it will be before he's deemed adoptable. **** Huggins need some hugs! This gorgeous boy was just rescued from a local shelter, caring staff who reached out to GRRALL to help save his life. In such a short time on this earth Huggins ended up a stray, emaciated, fleas, ear infections, and no surprise, heartworm positive. What is surprising is his attitude and demeanor; he is a happy, loving, and grateful boy and knows the worst is behind him. It often takes so little time for a dog like Huggins to fully cover from such neglect, and with the continued support of our foster families, volunteers, and donors we know Huggins will make some lucky adopter an incredible forever companion. Better pictures to follow as Huggins gets stabilized at the vet and begins his journey.

      Posted Breed: Golden Retriever (long coat). Davis - Male – 2 years old – GRRALL #565 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.
