Charlie (formally Huck) Finds His Forever Home!

Charlie goes nowhere without his “blankie!”

Update on Charlie!  After 8 months of intensive training (because he REALLY needed it) I am proud to say that not only has he turned into the sweetest dog, he is training for his Good Dog Citizenship!

In the near future Charlie and I will be working towards his therapy dog certification. Not bad for a former farm dog.

I was totally overwhelmed when I got Charlie, he was so out of control. I had never had a dog that needed that much training but time and effort paid off and he is absolutely wonderful.  He follows me everywhere and snuggles in bed with me. Thank you for allowing me to adopt Charlie he was exactly what I needed after losing my golden/chow of 14 years.

Chewie, Now Booker is Moving On Down the Road!

Chewie (now Booker) was adopted in October 2016 by the Mohrman family.  He and his family are moving out of state soon.  Chewie wants to say “good bye” to GRRAND and has high hopes for all future rescued dogs.  Looks like he is packed, belted in and ready to go.  We wish him the best!!!



You Tell Me! Is Harper a Happy Dog in His New Home???

Harper is such a great dog and I am so fortunate to have her.  She loves the tennis ball, socks, frequent hikes (and of course daily walks), and she can’t get enough of Michigan at my parent’s house, swimming in the lake or cruising around on the boat.   I really can’t even comprehend my life without her.  She gives me so much joy and I just hope that she feels the same about me!


Here are some of my favorite pictures of her over the years.  Unfortunately, she is a few years older than I had expected with the dates given–however she is still very spry.  I did have surgery done on her eyes as her eyelids were inverse and rubbing against her eyeballs!  Had that done a year or two after I got her, and it vastly improved the irritation she had from them.

I hope you know how much I appreciate your efforts in the adoption process with Harper.  She is such a great dog!  My parents are now looking to adopt a Golden from GRRAND.  I hope they get as lucky as I did.  – Walt Haglage –







(Biscuit) Now Spencer Thrives in His New Home!

I just had to let you know how wonderfully (Biscuit) Spencer is doing.  He has settled in so easily and gets along so well with Abby (Poppy).  He is one big happy dog and love bug!!  He has only been with us 1 week but has won over the hearts of all of our family.
