About Rizzo

Attn: Adopters!

Rizzo is a smart, beautiful blonde mostly Golden girl seeking an active family to share fun activities, lots of cuddles, and plenty of playtime! Rizzo is happy and affectionate with a desire to please. She is soon to be 9 months old, loves playing tag and tug-of-war, and is working hard on basic obedience. She is adorably clumsy and often slides right off the couch mid-belly rub. She is crate-trained, housebroken and takes treats gently when reminded, and doesn't get carsick. She enjoys car rides but needs to continue to be reminded that the driver’s seat is not hers.  Rizzo's vet is convinced she is part bunny because her fur is so soft! Rizzo will do best in a home without cats.  She is very curious about the cat in  her foster home and will chase (not with a desire to harm but this is stressful for the resident kitty!).   Rizzo is smart and is learning well but she does better without distractions (she is fostered with two other dogs).  When there are other dogs to play with, that is where her attention is.  She would do better as an only dog or maybe with a single, more mature dog who can show her the ropes.  If you have an approved application on file and feel like her description matches your home, please email Marcie.  Rizzo is being fostered in Fort Wayne.

Meet Goose! Goose is a one-year old handsome golden boy looking for a special forever home. Goose came to GRRACE after we got a call from a local shelter that he had been surrendered. We were immediately taken by his exuberance for life and love and treats, as well as his beauty! We learned pretty quickly that while 99% of the time, Goose was just a typical lover; he also had extreme issues with resource guarding. GRRACE enlisted the assistance of a wonderful behaviorist/trainer and Goose has been living with him and practicing his new lessons since November. Goose needs a home with a dog savvy person; not just a person with lots of dog experience, but a truly savvy dog person. He will need a fenced yard and no kids in the home. Adults only, no exceptions. His adopter will need to be committed to ongoing training, both with his trainer and constant continued work at home. Consistency is crucial and when followed, Goose does really well and will make a lovely companion for that special someone. Goose was adopted to the absolute perfect home for him but sadly, and through NO fault of his own, Goose came back to us recently. His adopter suffered a family tragedy which resulted in a huge life change and he could not keep Goose. If you have the time, patience and desire that Goose needs, and have an approved application on file, please email Marcie.
