Wanted:  New Homes

Hello, GRRAND friends!  It’s Lannis, TC, and Major.  We were all rescued by GRRAND and are so grateful to our foster families for helping us heal and thrive. Now, we are ready to find our FOREVER homes!  We would love to have a family to call our own and hope to celebrate the upcoming holidays with wild abandon.  We are all amazing pups, and we are hoping you will open your heart and consider adopting one of us!  We’ve been waiting so patiently. Please take a look at our bios and complete an application if you think one of us could be the one!
