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, 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 visting hours to meet this big boy in person. Brewster hopes to see you soon!
Donner is 10 years old 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 an 18 month old Blue Nose Pit Bull. 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 me to let you know he's hoping he won't be waiting too long. BULL POWER!!
January came to GGOH over 2 years ago when her owner surrendered her after she had had some issues with allergies. January was 9 years old when she was discarded; making her 11+ years old as of November, 2014. Would someone out there be up to having this sweet girl just hang out for awhile, she's got a whole lot of love left to give. January is a Siberian/Shepherd cross. If you are interested in learning more about January, please feel free to contact us or stop in for a visit. She'll be waiting, but hopefully not for too much longer!
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 intersted 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 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" before 2015!!!
Patrick has been residing with GGOH since he was 3 months old, he is now almost 5 years old (as of Nov. 2014). Patrick is a sweet, special boy who loves to go for walks, LOVES to cuddle, and is fine with cats, children and other dogs. More info. yet to come on Patrick but in the mean time, if you have questions you'd like to ask us about him, please feel free to contact us or stop by for a visit. We're certain that Patrick would LOVE to meet you!
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. Please don't overlook these wonderful pups ~ we know you would be happy with them, if you just gave them the chance they deserve.
