Chip is just a wiggly butt playful pup who needs an active home!
  • 2Good with other dogs
  • 1Good with children
  • 4House trained
Chip is a cutie pie and a very loving little guy (prob about 45-50lbs) who has come to us from a shelter in KY. Chip is in a foster home but is desperately looking for his forever family. He is full of energy and love and has a happy wiggly butt! He gets along great with other dogs and since he is still just a pup, he will need a home that can give him the exercise and direction he needs to be a good boy. He loves to go to the park and play with other dogs! He is so sweet with not a mean bone in his body and we need to find him his family and he will appreciate it bunches!!!

Here are a few things we have received from his foster family…

-Very attached to people and dogs he is acquainted with. Follows you from room to room all day. Very affectionate. Loves to lay next to you and get belly rubs; loves physical contact.
-Is not fearful of thunder but vacuum cleaners are distrusted.
-Does well traveling in vehicles as long as he can ride shotgun. Usually curls up to nap after he figures out where he is going. Currently travels to Wags Dog Park for a full day of socializing and exercise three days a week.
-Does not resource guard with dogs he is familiar with. Often leaves food in his bowl to eat later. Would be good if he went to a home with a calm alpha leader dog who could control his excitable temperment. Chip would not be a good alpha leader as he is too excitable and frantic to be the leader, but is very friendly!

If you would like to meet Chip, please contact GRRAND and fill out an app online.

Maya-and-Lilly Needs A Home

Age:7 years

Maya and Lilly are bonded littermates… FOSTER HOME NEEDED!
    Maya and Lilly are 7-year old very bonded Golden littermates. These girls lost their home when their owners both died within a short time of each other. They are now living with the owner’s son, but he is unable to keep the dogs over time. These girls are house and crate trained and trained to an invisible fence. They are trustworthy indoors when left alone for short periods of time, but they are usually crated during the day. These sweeties are also leash trained, although Lilly can reportedly pull on a leash at times. Maya has some arthritis and is taking medications for this and Lilly tends to be anxious at times, particularly during storms, and has a prescription of Trazadone which she may take up to twice daily. Lilly is good with other dogs, but Maya can be a bit testy with other dogs at times so it is best they go to a home with no other dogs.
    Maya and Lilly will be incredibly loyal to any family who is willing and able to take them in, provide them with love and care, and be just as much as a source of joy to them as they will be to the family.

    Bear-and-BJ Needs A Home

    BJ and Bear are doing GREAT in their foster home and really need a FOREVER FAMILY!!!
      BJ and Bear are a beautiful pair of AKC registered goldens who are in search of a new home together. They are a very bonded pair who have been together Bear’s entire life (8 years). This pair belonged to a family who was moving and took them to a local, rural animal shelter, but the shelter refused them because they were full. They are in a new foster home and here is a wonderful update from their foster daddy…
      BJ is a 13 yr old female and Bear is an 8 yr old male.

      BJ and Bear are doing very well and seem to be settling in. They aren’t eating much, but BJ did eat the kibble this morning. Bear is easily distracted and doesn’t seem to pay attention to food for long. Weird, because he’s so overweight. They are learning to go on walks, but clearly have not been on leashed walks much, if at all. They go in all directions, tangle each other and me, but are showing improvement in such a short time. I did take Bear on a walk by himself last evening and that was much more successful. They both showed extreme fear/anxiety when the garbage truck went by the house. I had them on leashes in the front yard and could hardily keep control of them. They both have been happily in the backyard with me on Monday and Tuesday. They love to be brushed and compete for the pleasure. They both sleep through the night and seem very happy here in a safe and cozy environment.

      Here’s a few words about each:
      BEAR: A sweet, and STRONG dog! He likes to be in your face when he sees you, but then quickly returns to BJ’s side. He likes to push BJ aside for your attention, but there is absolutely no aggression of any kind… just solid sweetness! He is not quite housetrained yet and we are working hard on this. I did keep them in the kitchen on Monday while I was gone. He seems to be responding well to the anxiety medication and each day gets better with Bear. He just needs patience, time and lots of love.

      BJ: Super relaxed, stays put, doesn’t like to move around the house at all. She’s found her spot on the living room rug and she is happy there. In fact, I have been bringing the food and water to her. She is having trouble on my wood floors, which may account for her desire to stay on carpet. When Bear knocks her over, which is usually what happens to her on the wood floors, it is a struggle to get up. She can do it, but it takes a bit. She has been on walks each day, but she REALLY resists once on the leash so we are working on that too and she is surprisingly STRONG. BJ doesn’t like any stairs, so I’ve been walking her out the front door and around the side gate into the backyard and once there, she has a blast with her brother.
      They are a great pair that need work, but in my short time with them I’m seeing a lot of progress! They just need a family willing to work with them and be committed to them, and they will be just fine!

      Lilly-and-Susie Needs A Home

      Can you say ADORABLE??
        Lilly & Susie are a beautiful pair of three yr old Golden littermates who are looking for a home together. These sisters are very bonded and love playing and sleeping together so GRRAND will be looking to place them as a pair and won’t consider splitting them up for adoption. Lilly & Susie came to GRRAND from an Amish breeder in Indiana who wanted to rehome them because they both proved to have mild to moderate hip dysplasia and therefore could not be used for breeding. The girls show no signs of discomfort or pain in their hips and are very active dogs who love to race around the yard and play together. They are house trained and extremely affectionate with people. They are looking for a new home with a family that has a fenced yard and is willing to provide them with lots of love and attention and regular exercise. If you are interested in this wonderful pair of sisters, please submit an adoption application and we will process it quickly.

          Say hello to Charley! This beautiful girl is new to GRRAND so we are still learning about her. She was surrendered to GRRAND as her person just could not give her the exercise, attention and direction she needed.
          Charley is a 4 year old very pretty girl and as we learn more, we will share.
