About Trooper

Hi my name is Trooper! I am 11 years young! I came to GRRACE as an owner surrender; I was very loved by my family.   My foster parents nickname for me is “Moose” because I am one of the biggest goldens they have ever fostered. I am a very tall handsome boy and weigh 98 lbs, but I am not overweight, just big boned ;)  The gentle giant so to speak! I got a clean bill of health from the vet and they said I was the sweetest dog ever! I get along really well with other dogs and kids. Cats are still an unknown, but I am a gentle soul so likely will be fine. I like to follow my foster peeps around the house and touch them whenever possible but I definitely like my down time; I am 11 after all. I am house trained and can be left alone while you are away - no need to crate me! I did great with my bath and grooming.  I will require a house with a fenced backyard as I like to go and explore if given the opportunity.  I love attention and belly rubs and I even have a couple of tricks up my sleeve. I might be an older pup but I have plenty of life left in me and I need a special family who can appreciate a special guy!  Trooper is being fostered in McCordsville, IN.

I’m Piper, a very petite (45 lb.) 11 month old girl with a beautiful lustrous red coat. I am spayed, micro-chipped, and current on all my vaccinations. I’m housebroken and have been a very good house dog in my foster home. I am a bit shy and have led a somewhat sheltered life. I would love to have more positive experiences just to build my confidence!  I am still working on basic commands but would benefit greatly from basic obedience training. I will flourish with each positive experience I have – I’m ready to be all that I can be!  Did I mention I am a love sponge and adore snuggling?  I am high energy when there’s room to run and enjoy chasing after birds & critters in the big yard at my foster home, but I settle beautifully once I’ve had enough exercise. I just learned that I love chasing Frisbees – I’m a Fly Girl!  Because I'm a Fly Girl, I must have a yard with a structural fence.   I do love being around my family, and being separated is hard for me. I may kick up a little fuss, but I eventually settle. My original family said I get along with other dogs and kids, but because of my energy and need for training, I would do best in a home with older children and gentle dogs. My foster family has a cat, and I haven't learned how to safely play with the cat, so cats are probably a no-no.  I must say that I don’t care too much for my crate, but my foster family thinks I don't need one because I haven't been destructive or gotten into any trouble.   I'm still a puppy so I have lots to learn, but I promise to give back every ounce of training and love invested in me! If you have an approved adoption application on file and you are interested in meeting me, please contact GRRACE. show less
