April is a female Lab/Rottweiler mix; DOB is
approximately October 2012.
Bernie is a male lab/hound mix and is
approximately 2 1/2 year old (as of Nov. 2014). He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heart worm checked and microchipped. This is one very happy go lucky dog; always giving the GGOH volunteers a run for their money when simply going outside for a quick break. Bernie loves to walk on his back legs, actually doing a little jig, when being escorted from his kennel to the run areas. He is a very lovable boy. About 55lbs. He was brought to GGOH roughly 2 years ago with his brother Mac when approached by another rescue to save these 2 from death row. Bernie needs an active adopter, a walker/runner perhaps, as he needs to be exercised daily; also someone who likes the lab type personality ( lots of energy and lots of love). If you think you might be a match for this young fella, give us a call or stop on by during visiting hours. Bernie can't wait to show you his dance moves!
Brewster is an Akita/Husky/Shepherd mix (DOB approximately November 2009), and is one great big teddy bear! He has been with us here at Gregory's for over 2 years now (as of Nov. 2014) awaiting his new forever home. Brewster is a big boy, weighing in at about 105 lbs. He loves the outdoors, loves going on walks and is partial to small dogs vs. dogs closer to his own size. He was previously living in a home with small dogs and did fine. Ok with cats and kids. He is up to date on his vaccinations and is neutered. Brewster was dumped from the back seat of a car while driving down a road in MN by his owner's cousin when the owner would not take him back after leaving him with her "for a bit". Police had record of all of the happenings with this person and Brewster was removed from the environment, only to land in a situation where he was to be euthanized - at this point, an animal advocate stepped in and promised him they would get him out "of jail". That's where Brewster's story begins with Gregory's; we were contacted by the animal advocate and immediately accepted Brewster into our GGOH family. If you'd like more information on Brewster, please contact us or stop by during visiting hours to meet this big boy in person. Brewster hopes to see you soon!
Chloe is a female Shepherd mix; DOB is
approximately October 2013.
Cyndee is a Boxer/Lab cross, spayed female; approximately 2-3 years old (as of January 2015). She's a medium sized gal at roughly 40 lbs. Up-to-date on vaccinations. She loves kids and is okay with cats and other dogs. Cyndee traveled all the way from the State of Georgia to join our GGOH family - we assisted another rescue and saved this sweet girl's life. A few words that describe this beautiful girl ~ active, affectionate, agile, energetic, house broken, playful, smart, sweet, RESCUED, LOVED! Stop in and see our newest addition to the GGOH family; we know you'll agree with us on all of the above once you've had the chance to meet her! Cyndee will be available for adoption after January 17, 2015.
Darla is a female Basenji mix; spayed and is current on vaccinations; between 7-8 years old (as of January 2015). Darla has been with us for quite a long time. During her 5 year stay with us, she has found her way into 3 homes only to be returned by no fault of her own. You ask how can such a lovely dog could be repeatedly abandoned? We are here to tell you this is one of those cases you just don't understand as a rescuer. Despite our diligent efforts to find her the best possible home, somehow she has ended up 3 times with people not willing to be responsible for their adoptions. To us, this is just
HEART BREAKING! This beautiful gal deserves to be loved as she has loved; she deserves to know she will always be a priority; she deserves the best! Please help us find her just that, WE CAN NOT LET HER DOWN AGAIN!
Darla is: Affectionate, Loving, Quick, Agile, Curious, Beautiful, Soft, Shiny, Playful, House Broken, Energetic, Dog Friendly, Cat Friendly, Kid Friendly, Loves To Go For Walks, Amusing, Joyful, Full of Life, Pretty, PRICELESS, RESCUED & LOVED!
ONLY COMMITTED NEED APPLY!
Denali is a female Yellow Lab mix. Denali came to GGOH in May, 2014 when she and her siblings were abandoned in a box at the end of farmer's driveway. What was going to happen to them if GGOH didn't step up was not good; with the threat of the pups being shot, we quickly took them in. Denali has been spending the past few months in a foster home, with another GGOH rescue dog who had been adopted earlier. She is doing well in foster, but we would really like to see her in a permanent home soon. Denali is very friendly, eager to please and LOVES to snuggle. If you are considering adding Denali to your family and would like to meet her, please contact us to schedule a meet and greet; WE KNOW YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!
Good with kids, cats and other dogs. Denali is spayed, micro-chipped and up to date on vaccinations.
Donner is 10 years old (DOB June 2004) but still has several years of loving to give. He is a Lab/Pointer mix. Donner came to GGOH after his owner passed away; a friend of his owner gave Donner a temporary home, but it didn't go too well as Donner had been a one person dog and was not used to other animals, which this temporary home had. While Donner prefers to be the only dog, we have begun to introduce him to the concept of walking along side other dogs by training him with one of our other rescues. Donner loves to go for walks and plays a mean game of fetch. Donner is doing good while here at GGOH, but we would really like to see him find a home to spend his last years in ~ LET'S FIND DONNER A NEW HOME!
Duke is a Blue Nose Pit Bull, 18 months old as of November 2014 . Duke was left behind by a young man whose mother tried to take care of him but was unable to keep up with his energy. Duke was slotted to be put up on Craigslist when a caring individual overheard and stepped in - thus began Duke's adventures with GGOH. While here with GGOH, he has been training with CJ's K9 Training and Retreat learning proper socialization, general obedience and just working to become the awesome dog we know he is.
Duke's report card is a B right now and he is available for adoption. We will continue to provide his training up until he is ready to go to a new furever home and training will still be available if needed dependent upon his progress at the time of adoption. Duke is very affectionate and loves to play. He is being socialized with other dogs and is doing well. Cats are still unknown at this time. He is good with children.
If you would like to meet Duke, please schedule an appointment to see this handsome young man. He will be waiting but he wanted us to let you know he's hoping he won't be waiting too long. BULL POWER!!
Lady is a Shetland Sheepdog, 8 years young as of the date on this photo (10/31/14). This is one beautiful gal. Lady has come a long way in a short time. Lady came to us after her owner passed away unexpectedly; she had no one to care for her and no family came forward to claim her. She is up to date on her vaccinations, is spayed, and is cat and dog friendly. She is a little shy still but has come around; she just needs a little extra TLC if you choose to become Lady's new canine guardian. If you're interested in Lady and would like more information, feel free to contact GGOH or stop by for a visit. Lady deserves a new home with someone to love on her - she'll be so happy you came!
Ms. Blue ~ female Pit Bull mix; DOB November 2012. Ms. Blue came to GGOH at 3 months old with a congenital bone defect of her front legs. After many, many months of rehabilitation at a clinic in Burnsville, MN, we were able to prevent Blue's paws from turning all the way over onto the top of her paws which would have made it very hard for her to walk. Casting and exercise and water therapy and hours upon hours of coaxing and she is able to live a somewhat normal life. She may walk a little different from her canine friends but this was one determined little girl with a lot of perseverance.
Ms. Blue is one special dog! Even though she has a disability and can not stand up all the way in a correct position, she can still run with the big dogs. She loves to be petted and just talked to. Each morning when our volunteers say hello to Ms. Blue, she will exit her kennel and come over and give out big hugs (she stands up using her back legs and will literally hug your leg with her two front deformed legs).
Won't you consider helping make her journey worth traveling. Please consider meeting Ms. Blue, you can judge for yourself how truly special this little gal is.
Intake 2/26/2013 ~ Lets get her "HOME" soon!!!
Munchkin & Shortcake are new arrivals to GGOH; intake date 1/4/2015. Papered, Rat Terriers. These precious souls lost their owner; he passed away and sadly, they had nowhere to go. They are getting along very well and are being loved by everyone until we can find a new furever home for them. These girls must go together. Both are female, 10 yrs old, up-to-date on vaccinations and spayed.
Patrick P. Bull is a male, Staffordshire Terrier; he has been residing with GGOH since he was 3 months old (DOB July 2010). Patrick is a sweet, special boy who loves to go for walks, LOVES to cuddle, and is fine with cats, children and other dogs. He is up-to-date on vaccinations, neutered, and micro-chipped. If you have questions you'd like to ask us about Patrick, please feel free to contact us or stop by for a visit. We're certain that Patrick would LOVE to meet you!
Petey is a male Jack Russell Terrier mix; DOB is
approximately June 2006. Petey is a darling little guy who came to GGOH as an owner surrender. He likes people, is fine with other dogs, cats are fine as well, and he does best with older kids who won't grab at him. Petey started out his life being someone's pet, then went to a rescue where he was adopted and had a home for several years and then sadly, had to enter our rescue. He has known love, only to have it taken away too many times. He weighs roughly 28 lbs., is neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, and is micro-chipped. He does have some special food needs and over the counter medication for some allergies but he is well worth the companionship and love you will receive. Petey loves to go for long walks and is content just hanging out. Let's find the right forever home for this little guy soon!
Roxy is a female, 6 yr. old Boxer. Photo taken December 2014. She is an owner surrender who is patiently waiting for a new, loving home. She is up-to-date on vaccinations, she is spayed and is heart worm checked. She is an all-around great dog who unfortunately was left behind due to a divorce/moving situation. She is good with other dogs, does well with cats, and loves kids. Sadly, sometimes pets suffer the most when people don't think ahead - let's not let Roxy pay for someone else's actions! Let's show her she is worth all the love she has to give. Stop in and meet this sweet, sweet girl - you'll be happy you did!!
Sawyer is a male, 2 1/2 - 3 years in age; breed undetermined at this time. Photo taken in January 2015. Sawyer is an owner surrender who is in need of a new loving home with lots of patience as he sometime has some separation anxiety. He has started on a few things since arriving at Gregory's to help him with this anxiety and has been very receptive to the changes. He is doing better every day. Very handsome medium sized dog. Neutered and up to date on vaccinations.
Shaney & Miley are mother and daughter and are very bonded; both have been residing at GGOH since 11/ 2009.
These girls have been with GGOH since they were brought in from one of our rescue missions on a reservation in South Dakota. Shaney, Miley and Bandit (who has been adopted) were taken after they were found beaten, with broken jaws and multiple injuries. It was reported by persons on the reservation that Shaney and Bandit were trying to save their puppies (who all perished) who were being beaten by some children and in their attempts, they were hit with baseball bats, breaking their jaws and Shaney's ear. It was heartbreaking to know they had suffered so much but it was heartwarming to know we were there and could get them out safely. Shaney, Miley and Bandit came to GGOH where they had to learn to trust and understand the world was not always a scary painful place. Miley was Bandit and Shaney's daughter from a previous birth so mom and daughter rely on each other heavily. Both love to go for walks and are great on their leashes. Love to snuggle and just be with you. They will need some time to adjust to a new environment but will do great with an individual or a family, with older children, who will give them love and patience. They are ok with cats but do have some issues with other dogs as they are afraid of them sometimes due to their beginnings, running among the packs.
We know they are special souls who just need understanding and a peaceful place to call "home". Red Heeler mixes; approx. 6 1/2 and 5 1/2 yrs old (as of December 2014). Please don't overlook these wonderful pups ~ we know you would be happy with them, if you just gave them the chance they deserve.
Tucker is a male Staffordshire Terrier; DOB is
approximately January 2009. Tucker is deaf. More info. to come on Tucker but if you have questions in the meantime, please feel free to contact us.
Tucker is roughly 85 lbs., male, neutered, Black Lab mix. Tucker came to us recently as an owner surrender when a divorce disrupted his home life. Unfortunately, the owner could not find a place to live that would accept a dog of Tucker's size. GGOH stepped up and accepted Tucker so that he would not end up at a "humane" society and become another life lost due to euthanization (Tucker possesses all the characteristics of a doomed dog if put in that type of a situation - large, black and considered a senior). Tucker is in need of a foster home as he is extremely stressed in our shelter environment after being at his home for almost 9 years and used to being the only dog, with all of the attention given to him. Being left behind is proving to be very hard on him; he just doesn't know what to think of what has happened to him. It is very heartbreaking for all of us and we want to help this sweet boy and find him a home soon, but a foster situation in the interim would help him immensely. He is a very, very sweet, large dog. We would love to find someone who is perhaps home a majority of the day and can have him be a big part of their family. He is fine with kids although cats are questionable; we are working to introduce him to cats. Tucker walks well on his leash and listens very well. He LOVES attention. If you think you could provide Tucker with a safe, loving environment while we seek a permanent home for him, please stop in and meet this big, sweet boy or call and leave a message and someone will contact you as soon as possible. GGOH will provide for all his needs while in foster care.
Turner is a male Pit Bull mix; DOB is
approximately June 2009.
TURNER=Trustworthy, Unique, Ready to Please, Needy, Energetic, Rambunctious...RESCUED, LOVED!
Turner came to GGOH back in the fall of 2009 after being left chained to a pole near a run down trailer home. Left alone with a gash in his leg, he was quickly scooped up by a concerned party and GGOH was asked to help him out. Turner joined the GGOH family, received the medical attention he needed, and has been awaiting the perfect person/family to come along and swoop him off his paws. Turner has been here at GGOH the majority of his life; let's get this sweet guy outta here and on to living a dog's life!
Zippy (Zipper) is a sweet little French Bulldog with a BIG personality. He will be up for adoption in the future but right now that is on hold as we are waiting on funding to undergo double eye surgery to correct his cataracts - he currently can only see shadows (and we are not even sure how much of the shadows he is really able to decipher when moving around). He was surrendered to GGOH along with Frankie, who has since been adopted, after his owner was found to have too many dogs in her possession. Unfortunately Zippy's eye condition had been coming on for some time without being addressed and he slowly lost his vision. Luckily with the help of Dr. Larocca, Zippy will once again be seeing the world around him. We are so excited to be able to assist him in this life altering procedure. We could not do this without all the help from THE FRIENDS OF GREGORY'S. All of your support is so greatly appreciated. What better thing than to be part of a world of vision for Zippy! If you could find it in your hearts to make a small donation in Zippy's name, we know he would be forever grateful to you!!
