April is a female Lab/Rottweiler mix;
approximately 3 1/2 years as of April 2015. Intake date: Sept. 2012. April and her brother Sarge were taken in at Gregory's after they were abandoned by their owner out in the country. Upon trying to make their way back to the city, a kind community member contacted GGOH for assistance for these two who had taken up residency at the bottom of her driveway. The reason we knew they were "dumpee's" is the owner had been to GGOH on the Friday before they were found, inquiring about surrendering them. April's pads were ripped from running and both were hungry, thirsty and tired. We really have no idea how far they had run back. We immediately took both to the vet, got them on the road to being healthy, happy dogs and have since been providing their care; Sarge found his new home in November of 2014 but April still awaits hers. April is just plain WONDERFUL; could you be her SPECIAL SOMEBODY?
Bernie is a male lab/hound mix and is
approximately 2 1/2 year old (as of Nov. 2014). Intake date: Feb. 2013. 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; she is
approximately 11 years old. Chloe is a very sweet girl who loves to go for walks and snuggle. She is not very fond of other dogs; she is fine when leashed and on walks with others but doesn't do well if she were to mix with them. Chloe is fine with kids, cats and people. She is very much a people pleaser. Chloe came to GGOH in early 2012 when her owners had set out to euthanize her due to an altercation with another dog. Rather than have her lose her life for simply not liking another dog we agreed to have Chloe join us here at Gregory's. Just like some people, there are dogs who prefer to not have others of her own kind in her own personal space - how could we fault her for that! She has done great here with us; she is very friendly with all the volunteers and staff and as stated, is fine with other dogs when supervised and everyone keeps their own space. Great walking partner for an active person! This senior gal has lots of spunk and is looking for the right person to love her and be her guardian. Is it you?
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!!
Emmett is a male Basset Hound/Dachshund Cross, approx. 13 months as of March 2015; weight, roughly 30 lbs. Emmett, came to us from a reservation in South Dakota where he was surrendered to the LightShine Rescue Group whom we have been working with. Emmett was suffering from Demodex (which we are treating him for) but otherwise appears to be healthy. He is a sweet little guy who was very lucky that LightShine was there at that particular time or he very well might have lost his life to euthanasia. Emmett is ready to go with vaccinations up-to-date and he has been altered - could he be the one for you?
ADOPTION PENDING FOR FRANNIE!Frannie, Shay & Dawson ~ Intake date: 3/29/15. Frannie, along with her two pups, Shay and Dawson, are the result of yet another rescue mission from the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. The LightShine Rescue Group has been doing some amazing work out on this Reservation to save as many dogs as possible from a nearly certain death and we here at GGOH have been doing our part to help when we can. Frannie is a German Shepherd/Lab mix, approximately 2 years old. She is up-to-date on vaccinations but is not yet spayed as she came to us still nursing her pups. Shay & Dawson are believed to be a Lab cross, both microchipped and up-to-date on their puppy shots; approximately 10 weeks old as of 4/13/15. Both pups are females with Shay having the white-tipped paws and white bib. Dawson is solid black. Frannie is just a lovely, well-behaved dog and has been a very good momma to her babies. She would make a wonderful pet for anyone looking to add a medium sized dog into their life. The puppies are, well, puppies! They are full of energy and are into all the things a puppy would normally be into at this age. They like to run and play and roll and jump and sniff and chew and well, as already said, do all things puppy. We're excited to have them here with us at GGOH but we're even more excited over the possibility of finding these wonderful dogs new and loving forever homes. If you'd like to meet Frannie, Shay or Dawson, please review our adoption policies and procedures and then come on in during visiting hours for an up-close and personal - we just know you're going to love them!
Freida is a female German Shepherd, approximately 7 years old (as of intake in March 2015). According to the kennel that we received Freida from, she is a purebred. She is up-to-date on vaccinations, heart worm negative, and spayed. Freida is another beautiful dog that came to GGOH from Smiling Dog Farms in TX. Freida's only been with us for a short time, but in the little amount of time that we've had her, we've observed excellent behavior. She is friendly right-off-the-bat with newcomers (people that is), has no interest whatsoever in cats, and is good with smaller dogs. Freida is BEAUTIFUL! Very good looking dog. She may be a petite German Shepherd, but there sure is a lot to love about her. We're told she's not real fond of bath time, doesn't fight it, but doesn't exactly like it either - but hey, can you blame her - when you look this good, there's no need to mess with silly old baths. Don't let this love of a girl slip by you if you're in the market for a bigger, sweetheart of a dog - you'll kick yourself for it if you do!! Note: Freida's coloring is more true to life in the second photo - first photo was provided to us from the rescue in TX.
Greta is a female Pit Bull/Bull Terrier mix, approximately 12 months old (as of April 2015). Intake date: March 2015. Up-to-date on vaccinations and is spayed. Greta spent some time with one of our local trainers and has progressed marvelously. She is ready to go to her new forever home; could you be the one to give her that gift?
GRETA = Gorgeous, Ready To Please, Energetic, Trustworthy, Affectionate!
Hailey is a female Terrier mix, approximately 12 months old (as of April 2015). Intake date: March 2015. Up-to-date on vaccinations and is spayed. Hailey is another SD Reservation rescue. This little dog is such a sweetheart - she is sure to melt all your worries away! Hailey is full of energy, loves to play, gives out kisses freely and is a great lap dog. She has won over all of our hearts here at GGOH and we are certain once you meet her, she'll win yours over, too.
Laurel is a female, Short Hair Chihuahua, mostly white with a tiny bit of fawn coloring; approximately 5 years old (as of March 2015). She is up-to-date on vaccinations, heart worm negative, and spayed. Laurel came to us from Smiling Dog Farms in Texas. She is every bit Chihuahua and just full of life. She's quickly winning us over here at GGOH, no doubt! She's great with other dogs and cats don't seem to fazed her at all. If you're a Chihuahua lover, you've got to come meet this girl - we think she's pretty darn special and we're sure you will, too.
Marion is a female, Yellow Lab Mix, approximately 3 years old (as of March 2015). She is spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations and is heart worm negative. She has a docked tail, and may have been born this way, but we're not sure. Marion comes to GGOH from Smiling Dog Farms in Texas. This medium sized dog is BIG on love - such a sweat heart! She's great with other dogs and is very good with cats as well. We're told she's good with kids, and honestly we don't see how she couldn't be as she is just the nicest dog. Oh, and Marion has the softest fur EVER! She is going to make someone a great cuddle bug!!
Mick is a male Shep/Siberian/Lab mix. 9 Weeks old (5/1/2015). Very sweet, wonderful disposition, very playful. Well socialized, good with bigger dogs, small dogs and cats. Good with children when supervised - after all, we're talking puppy here! Mick is up-to-date on vaccinations but has not yet been neutered. Pictures ~ April 2015; May 2015.
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 is one determined little girl with a lot of perseverance.
Ms. Blue is one special dog! Even though she has a disability and cannot 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 ~ Let's 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. Princess has also now joined her sister's here at GGOH; she arrived the week of March 8th, 2015. Princess had originally gone to another party when her owner passed, but sadly, they no longer wanted her and we felt it only right that Princess join her sisters. Photo yet to come on Princess, but we can tell you this, she looks just like her sisters!
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 Terrier mix; DOB is
approximately June 2006. Petey is a darling little (if you consider 32 lbs. 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 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!
Pippy is a female Shep/Siberian/Lab mix. 9 Weeks old (5/1/2015). Very sweet, wonderful disposition, very playful. Well socialized, good with bigger dogs, small dogs and cats. Good with children when supervised - after all, we're talking puppy here! Pippy has one brown eye and one partial blue eye - she is stunningly beautiful and we anticipate she will be a real looker once full grown. Pippy is up-to-date on vaccinations but has not yet been spayed. Pictures ~ April 2015; May 2015.
Ruby ~ Oh what a sweet little gal; can you help us find a new furever home for Ruby? This darling little Chihuahua joined the GGOH house on 3/20/15. Due to some unforeseen circumstances, her family made the difficult decision to let Ruby go so she could find a new home where she will receive proper care and be given the time they know she deserves. They've entrusted her in our care and it's now our obligation to find this little gal a home; we want her previous owners to know she will be loved by us as much as they loved her and we will find her a new loving home - we promise! Ruby is almost 10 months old (born 6/11/2014). She is great with kids, other dogs and is fine with cats. She'll need a few minutes to warm up to you but is a loving little snuggler in no time. Crate trained; up to date on vaccinations; micro chipped. Ruby is currently NOT spayed.
Sawyer is a male, approximately 5 years in age; Terrier mix. 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 sometimes 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. Does well with other dogs is fine with the cats and has done well around older children. He truly is a very sweet dog. Just looking for his perfect match. 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.
TeddyBear (Teddy B.) is a male Wheaton Terrier Cross; approximately 4 years old. He is current on vaccinations and is microchipped. Teddy B. is blind. We've had him to a specialist and have learned that his eyes are not the problem so our next stop is a vet specializing in neurological care. Let us reassure you though, Teddy B. does not let his blindness slow him down; he is a happy loving dog and his tail starts wagging when he hears his name spoken by a friendly voice he recognizes. He is content to just sit and share his space with you when you have time to take a break. He can entertain himself with his stuffed toys while he waits patiently for you to have time for him. This is a very loving dog who needs a very special someone to have the patience, the love and the heart to help him live out his life knowing he is safe in the hands of his new guardian angel.

Currently, Teddy is not a candidate to go to a home that has other pets. Teddy has not adjusted fully to his blindness and other pets in the home could add to his sensory issues. Right now he needs to be with someone who can give him quite a bit of one-on-one time with consistent and persistent training. Teddy may do well with another dog in the home in the future, but right now, addressing his own sensory needs comes first.
Teddy is waiting, might you be the one to give him his new furever home?
Tucker is a male Staffordshire Terrier; DOB is
approximately January 2009. Intake date: June 2010.
Tucker is a SPECIAL NEEDS dog. He is deaf and needs to have someone with patience and a whole lotta love. We promise you, will get that love back tri-fold. Tucker does also have some allergy issues, he is on special food, takes allergy medications daily and he does receive monthly shots. Don't let that scare you off, Tucker is well worth the extra care. He is up-to-date on vaccinations, is neutered, and is micro-chipped. Due to Tucker's deafness, he is not a candidate for invisible fencing - he must go to a home with above ground, stationary fencing. Also, please note, a home with younger children would not be a good match for Tucker due to the startle factor that deaf dogs often have. Older children who would understand how to interact with Tucker would be best.
Turner is a male Pit Bull mix; DOB is
approximately June 2009. Turner came to GGOH back in the spring of 2011 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 sweep 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!
Vinnie is a male, Lab/Shar-pei Mix, approx. 11 months as of March 2015 (first picture above). Vinnie was left on the streets as a puppy to wander and scrounge for any scraps of food he might find. As he grew, he was infested with mites that left him with dry itchy skin, hair loss, some open sores and cracking bloody skin. This young pup knew no love just heartache, wanting someone to care enough to stop and help him, maybe even give him a bath, some food, a little pat on the head, to let him know he mattered. Enter LightShine Rescue Group; bless their souls for driving the roads day in and day out looking for not only Vinnie, but the hundreds of animals in similar and even worse situations. Because they stopped and showed Vinnie that YES PEOPLE CARE, he is here with us today. While LightShine Rescue Group made the first move, GGOH made the second. We made the commitment to help this sweet boy get veterinary care so he could begin to heal and promised to show him HOW MUCH HE MATTERS. We shower him with love daily and have helped him to learn that the world is not all cruelty; there is a lot of love and kindness out there and before long, we hope he'll know the love of a new home, too. Vinnie's skin condition is improving daily and before long, you won't even know this sweet boy had such a rough beginning. Vinnie is currently in-tact as he cannot be altered until he has finished his meds for his skin condition (Demodex) - however, we will cover altering if you would like to adopt Vinnie now and agree to finish out his meds for the Demodex. If you'd like more information on Vinnie, please feel free to contact us as we'd be glad to tell you all about him.
The second picture of Vinnie is one month later in April 2015. Just look at his progress! He is one handsome boy!!
