About Daisy

"Daisy" is an apox 4 year old female sweetheart who is finally ready to find her perfect furever home!  Daisy came into GRRACE after being found by a good samaritan running along I-70. After a week in the local shelter, she was released to GRRACE as she required medical attention that they were unable to provide.  Daisy was emaciated with most of her ribs & hip bones visible.  She was also flea infested and dirty.  Daisy's biggest issue was the severe muscle wasting on her skull.  This weakened muscle and lack of mass prevented her from eating well, despite a voracious appetite.  I started her on steroids and increased her feedings and amount being fed but was impatiently waiting for her to gain weight!  It has taken over two months to see results, but as they say: slow and steady wins the race.  Daisy currently weighs in at 63lb!  (For those of you medically minded, we tested her for Masticatory Myositis which came back Negative.  All bloodwork in normal).

Daisy is a special girl and has some very specific quirks.  

  • Firstly, because she was a "runner" and has not proved herself trustworthy off leash, I am requesting that applicants have a physical fence. 
  • She likes to go for walks, but will not do her business on a leash, so after walking her, she needs an opportunity to spend time in the backyard to finish her duties.
  • She is currently eating 3 cans of dog  food a day and nearly 4-5 cups of dry food.  (This can get expensive so please keep that in mind)
  • When she meets you for the first time or gets really excited, she tries to "hump" your leg.  We are working on this, but its a work in progress
  • She does this "chomping" thing with her mouth when she wants to give you kisses.  Not biting, but it will catch you off guard at first.

This is a very special, loving girl,  who is working thru some trust issues and is looking for a family that will shower her with love, pets, and squeaky toys.

Admit it… you already love me and I love you. Funny how that happened with only looking at my picture! My name is Bodhi (“bow-dee” is how you say it. Foster mom also calls me Bodhi-Boo or Bo Bo). I’m a very sweet 9 month old blond Golden boy, and I’m looking for the perfect home! I really want to have another dog in my future home, but don’t worry you’ll always be my #1 human. I get a little bummed out if I don’t have a playmate around to keep me company because I love to wrestle and be silly. I need to have a fenced yard because I love to run around outside too! In my downtime I’m really calm and relaxed. I love my walks and I don’t pull on the leash. I like to nap, chew on my elk horns, chill out, and be as close to my people as possible. I’ve been around cats and I’m cool with them, so no worries there. I can get really nervous when my foster mom leaves so we’re working on making me more comfortable and I’m trying to learn that she always comes back. I hate the crate so I’m hoping for my forever family to have someone in the household that is mostly home; maybe works from home or is retired and home a lot and thinks it would be fun to include me in their outings! I would benefit from some puppy training classes. I need to learn some manners because I get really excited when people come and see me. My foster mom has been telling me it’s not polite, so I’m learning. And training classes with my new family will help us build a strong bond! I’m still working on a bit on potty training; I sometimes get so busy that I forget to go to the door, so my foster mom knows to let me out often. I don’t mind because I get a treat when I do my business! I’m a real catch, and my foster mom agrees. I really think YOU need ME in your life. Have your people contact my people and let’s make this happen! xoxo, Bodhi! If you have an approved application on file and think you might be the family who can love Bodhi, please email Marcie. Please note - no emails will be returned to anyone without an already approved adoption application. Bodhi is being fostered in Westfield, Indiana. PLEASE NOTE: Emails to the foster contact listed above will only be answered if you have an APPROVED application on file with GRRACE.

My foster mom & dad say I am a perfect gentleman! My name is Leo and I am almost 6 years old. I like everyone; kids, cats, dogs, horses! And I like to play ball and go for walks. I know a few basic commands and I will follow you around and stick close by your side. A true golden, that’s what I am! I do have a little problem with my back and some of my discs have fused, but that doesn’t stop me from having a lovely life, I’m just not as fast as other guys my age. If you are looking for a wonderful companion and would enjoy a guy who is happy just being someone’s buddy, please email Marcie. If you have an approved application on file and think you might be the family who can love Leo, please email Marcie. Please note - no emails will be returned to anyone without an already approved adoption application. Leo is being fostered near Anderson, IN.

This is Sam. He might have more air travel miles than anyone you know! GRRACE rescued him from China where his future was in peril. He is one happy dude learning to live in America. Sam is about 3 yrs. old, and he’s very healthy. He does have a dislocated left hind leg knee. However, he was born with this handicap. The knee makes him limp a bit when he walks, but at full speed it’s not even noticeable! Since he loves to run, we don’t feel that his knee causes him any pain. Sam gets along with other dogs, meets people very well, and will be very easy to train. He’s going to be a great family member! If you have an approved application on file and think you might be the family who can love Sam, please email Marcie. Please note - no emails will be returned to anyone without an already approved adoption application.
