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.

If you have an approved application on file and have read this bio, and feel you are a good home for Cricket, please email Marcie. Hi there, I am Cricket, I'm a 9yo boy, and am looking for my forever home. My human got very sick and had to send me to the shelter when he couldn't take care of me any more. I'm housebroken and leave everything alone in the house but food. I'm good with other dogs and cats. I'm healthy and neutered and up to date on my shots. I'm a little smaller than other Goldens, and have cuter ears, because I'm only part Golden! I like being petted and going for walks, and when my foster mom is busy I like to hang out in my crate, or take a nap near her. I am hoping for a calm, laid-back house of adults with no kids - I'm not used to being in a house all the time and need someone with patience who will teach me how this works. If you have an approved application on file and think you might be the family who can love Cricket, please email Marcie. Please note - no emails will be returned to anyone without an already approved adoption application. PLEASE NOTE: Emails to the foster contact listed above will only be answered if you have an APPROVED application on file with GRRACE.

My name is Hutch, and I traveled all the way from Qatar to come to GRRACE! I am around 4 years old and as sweet as can be. I am my foster mom’s shadow wherever she goes, and I really like wrestling and running around with my Golden foster brother. There is something called a ‘cat’ around here that I’m very curious but cautious about! I am very well behaved and usually calm, but I will probably try to sit up and hug you when you come in the door! I also will bring you a present of some kind to greet you – a dog toy, shoe, or anything else I can find. I am learning that walks are fun, but my foster mom says I pull a little bit. I’m just curious about all the new smells! I walk with a limp on my back left leg because one of my hips was broken as a puppy, but I run around just fine and am not in pain. I am currently taking some medicine for anxiety because it was such a big transition to my new life, but I am doing great! My favorite thing to do is lie with my head in someone's lap to get some love. I can’t wait to meet my forever family! Hutch would do best in a home with older children. If you have an approved GRRACE application on file and are interested in meeting him, please contact Marcie.
