Great Big Dogs, Great Big Expenses

At GDRNT we are committed to rescuing dogs from shelters who would not otherwise have a chance at a furever home. Frequently, this means we take in dogs with big medical needs and big medical bills. Most frequently, that translates to heartworm treatment, but it is not uncommon to take in a dog that needs orthopedic surgery to correct an old injury or congenital malformation.

Sweet Sasha is Home!

Sweet Sasha was a bit shy when she arrived at rescue. She immediately loved the humans in her foster home and did well with the kitties, but she wasn’t sure how she ended up there. As she became comfortable in her foster home, her confidence grew. Soon, she was ready for a furever home.

Josh is Patiently Awaiting His Furever Home

Josh is an amazing dog, but… There’s always a but, isn’t there? GDRNT rarely takes in Dane mixes, but every now and then we make an exception. Josh was on the euthanasia list at a local shelter. They thought he was full Dane; we thought he was a mix. Now that he’s here, we’re sure he is a mix. At the end of the day, what mattered was that an amazing, young dog was about to be euthanized for space if we didn’t take him.

FURever Awesome Sauce Homes

Wow a lot going on here at GDRNT and we have fallen behind on keeping everyone filled in on the great news. Remember every dog that is adopted opens a foster spot for us to take on one more pup. Normally I like to give everyone their own FURever but I am so far behind... so lets have a FUREver Home Story PARTY.

Robert found his FURever

Robert is a fun loving dude who never met a stranger. Robert came to rescue and left his past behind him fast... he just wanted to share his joy with everyone. Roberts energy is not for everyone but he needed an active home who would not only keep up with his training but also provide a lot of attention and love.

Well our adoption team did it again and found Robert a great furever Dad to share his love of life with. These two are already peas in a pod and setting out on new adventures.


SCOUTing Out a FURever Home

Scout came to rescue because he was a repeat visitor to a local shelter and his family did not want to claim him since they could not provide a home for him any longer ... Scout would wander from home regularly and now we know why. Scout was probably looking for a new furever family, not because his old family was mean but they just could no longer provide for him... so he took it upon him self to find himself a new one. Once in foster care Scout bloomed with a little training, some structure and love. He meshed so well into his foster home that ... well he is staying.

Princess Belle has Found her FURever Castle

Sometimes a foster dog makes it known what they want in a FURever home. So it was with Belle. Now I have fostered my fair share of puppies but never have I seen a puppy with so much love for young children. Belle would gravitate to them, follow them, just want to be with them... now my boys are way past little kid stage so every chance she got she would snuggle a kid. While most puppies are a bull in a china shop Belle seemed to adjust for the little folks... not to say she couldn't forget her size but it was clear she needed some dane savy kids as part of her FURever story.

Elvis Has Left the Building

Many of our fosters come to us in rough shape: heartworm positive, in need of manners, emaciated... you name it, we’ve seen it. So, it’s always a surprise when a “perfect” foster comes to us from a local shelter. Bob’s foster home could not say enough good things about him. They’ve been long time fosters for GDRNT; so, this is high praise. Bob had perfect manners, was eager to please, loved the kiddos, and was an all-around perfect gentleman. The only thing he did not have was a furever home.

Bob, now Elvis
