Mullins-and-Faye Needs A Home

Breed:Golden/Bord Coll
Intake date:5/01/2020
Post date:5/03/2020
They just need some time and patience…
    Mullins is the Golden and Faye is the Border Collie mix… They are proving to be wonderful dogs that were found as strays and brought to a shelter. We believe they are between the age of 2 and 3ish.
    They are in a foster home and as we learn more we will post but we do know they are VERY bonded and devoted to each other and keeping them together is a must! They are currently in a foster home and are settling in well. The foster family says…
    ‘They are fully housebroken, walk on leashes well, are gentle and affectionate with people. They allow us to take bones and food bowls without guarding and Linus is quite good at sitting and waiting for his food (Lucy is still pretty excitable but calms well)’. And we know that they both LOVE attention and getting love from their people!

    Jackson Needs A Home

    Age:2 years
    Breed:Border Collie Mix
    Intake date:5/12/2020

    This is Jackson!
      Jackson is a happy Border Collie mix, approximately 2 years old. He came to the shelter as a stray, and we are starting to get to know all about him in his foster home.

      So far, Jackson seems to be great with people and other dogs. He was put in his place quickly by the foster’s cat, and his doggie foster sister is teaching him healthy dog boundaries. He likes to explore, so he will need a fenced-in yard.

      As with all Border Collies, Jackson is a smart guy and quick learner. He will need a family committed to keeping him mentally and physically stimulated, and he will be a great boy! Jackson is currently working on crate training and house training in his foster home.

      If you are interested in meeting Jackson, please complete an adoption application:

      Waffles Needs A Home

      Age:5 mos
      Intake date:5/18/2020
      Post date:5/19/2020
        Waffles is an adorably goofy 5 month old puppy who was surrendered to us after being born with a congenital defect. She was born with her urethra attached to her bladder in the wrong position, so she leaks urine and is unable to control the leakage. This is not a potty-training issue: Waffles is potty-trained and goes potty outside, but she still has urine that drips throughout the day.

        GRRAND accepted Waffles, knowing that she will be needing a very expensive surgical procedure in order to correct this defect. The surgery will be conducted at GRRAND’s expense by specialists at Ohio State University Vet School when Waffles is mature enough to have this procedure done (conceivably, within the next couple of months). We are hopeful that the surgery will correct her urine leakage, but this is not a complete guarantee.

        It’s possible Waffles may also never be able to be spayed because this could risk the weakening of her sphincter muscle and could result in urine leakage again. Wearing diapers on an ongoing basis is also not an option for Waffles because this will likely cause bladder or staph infections over time.
        Waffles is looking for a family who is willing to work with her through her medical challenges. Within the next couple of months, Waffles will have an appointment with specialists at Ohio State Vet School and will then return at a later date for her surgery. Her family will need to commit to taking her to these appointments. Waffles will also need a family willing to work with her in the home, despite her dripping urine. Hardwood or tile floors, as opposed to carpet, would be ideal, as would a family with someone home much of the day to assure that she gets out to empty her bladder frequently. Waffles’ foster family has plenty of tips that they would be happy to share! Waffles’ family may also need to be willing to work with her heat cycles every nine months for life, if the vet specialists recommend that she never be spayed.

        Waffles is a super sweet, playful, and energetic puppy who loves other dogs and people. She also does fine with cats. She has recently discovered swimming, and although not a master by any means, she absolutely loves the water! This happy girl is just looking for a special family willing to commit to her, despite her medical needs.

        If you are interested in meeting Waffles, please complete an adoption application. She is looking for a home in our current service area of Greater Louisville, Greater Lexington, or Greater Cincinnati.

        GRRAND will be covering the cost of this surgery for Waffles and her sister French Toast, who was also surrendered to us with the same congenital defect and has found her forever family. The cost is upwards of $3,000 per dog. If you are able to donate, every amount helps!

        Rocky Needs A Home

        Age:6 mos
        Breed:Flat coat/Border

        Looking for a puppy?
          Rocky is a 6 month old Flat Coat Border Collie mix who is just waiting for YOU! He was turned into a shelter as he kept getting out of his people’s yard, and we believe it was because he was always in the backyard by himself but he wanted to be with them, so he snuck out!

          Here is some info we have received from his foster family…
          Rocky’s Wish List:
          *More food! I am a growing, hungry, food-motivated little guy! Will work for treats!
          *Cozy dog beds and cool floors, depending on my mood and my current temperature!
          *Sitting on your lap and snuggling!
          *Being near people! I really, really like dogs but I think I love my people just a teeny little bit more! (This may change though because I’m really starting to LOVE my canine roommate, Parker, even more so after 24 hours!)
          *Traveling! I am great in my kennel in the car and I absolutely love to go! I’ll snooze…you drive!

          Rocky likes to play but also knows when to chill out for the most part. He is doing very good with his crate and house-training so far. He is a little unsure of some loud noises and unfamiliar sounds (vacuums, doorbells) but seems pretty adaptable. He doesn’t mind a bath and hardly sheds. He absolutely 100% likes to be around people and will be your shadow — following you from room to room. He grunts at you sometimes to make sure you both see him and hear him… it’s super cute. He is very receptive to minimal correction and commands. He already knows how to sit pretty well and is working on many others. He is very food-motivated and will aim to please for a treat! So far, toys aren’t really his thing but maybe I haven’t found the perfect one for him quite yet! We worked on leash manners today so more to come, but he seems very smart!
          Remember, this sweet boy is a needy puppy and he just wants to be with you!!! He loves love and every animal he meets… other dogs, cats and bunnies too!

          Rocky will thrive in a home where there is lots to do and kids to play with as he is always busy… that is the Border Collie/Retriever in him!!! He is a good little dog with a LOT of energy and his home will have to be committed to giving him the exercise and direction he needs to be a good boy!
          Please contact GRRAND for more info!
