About Duke

Hi all – Duke here.  I am a 1 ½ young boy rescued with from a puppy mill.  Boy has life changed for me…and all for the better!!!  I will be two years old in March 2018.  I am a tall boy with lots of energy that my foster family is trying to harness.  Because my first two years of life were in bad conditions, I have to learn social skills and confront my fears.  I am teaching my foster family about those fears and they are encouraging me and loving me through my progress.  I need my forever family to spend time and energy to help me continue to progress.  And my foster family needs to be patient with me so I can continue to grow into a terrific young man.

I am a huge cuddle bug and love attention!  I like to chew on my hard chew toys.  I travel in the car in a crate and I like that.  Going to the vet is new to me so I get scared but am very sweet to the vets and techs.  They have told foster mom how lovable I am….pretty cool for me.  I crate easily but get to be out in foster mom and dad’s bedroom at night.  I do crate when they are gone to make sure I don’t have accidents or get in trouble.  I am learning to go for walks but need patience with this as I sometimes get scared and need encouragement.

Because of my size, age, and energy, I would be best in a family with children over 10 years of age.  I am fine with other dogs. I haven’t met cats so no comment there.   I am learning to play with my two-year old foster brother. Foster mom and dad think I would be most successful with a furry friend at least 4 or 5 years old or older.  I would be fine as an only dog.  I definitely need a yard with a structural fence so I can go outside and enjoy life!    If you have an approved application on file and would like to meet handsome Duke, please email Marcie.

Hello GRRACE friends! Let me introduce you to Chef, as in “YES! CHEF!” Chef came to GRRACE through a shelter where his owner surrendered him. This sweet sugar faced guy is between 6 & 8 yrs old (closer to 6 per the vet) Don’t let the sugar face fool you! This guy has spunk and energy! Chef weighs in at 58 lbs, so on the smaller size for a male golden. He looks lean, but the vet thinks he is about the right weight. And what a Love! Chef will sit with you on the couch, sleep with you in bed, and ask you to play ball all day long. He is a complete velcro dog! He will go in a crate when you leave but his face will break you heart! He also does have some neat tricks! Chef can “Speak!” and he likes to “talk.” He can also “Shake” sometimes. Chef will need some training to walk on a leash, but as he is so eager to please, it shouldn't take long to get into the swing of things. He loves “treats” and knows that word well! His mostest favoritest thing, though, is Tennis Balls! Be prepared to spend time with him throwing the ball. We have found that it's better to have two or three handy. He LOVES his Tennis Balls. We haven’t seen that noise, fireworks, or sudden sounds bothers him. He enjoys being outside, laying in the shade, chewing on a ball as long as you are outside and he can see you. Chef was recently neutered and got the "all clear" to look for his forever home. If you have an approved application on file and are interested in a great boy, please email Marcie. Chef is being fostered in Kokomo, IN PLEASE NOTE: Emails to the foster contact listed above will only be answered if you have an APPROVED application on file with GRRACE.
