April is a female Lab/Rottweiler mix; DOB is
approximately October 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). 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. 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 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?
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!
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!!
Ms. Fancy Pants is approx. 10-11 years old. Fancy was brought to us in dire medical condition - she suffered from Pyometra (an infection in the uterus; it is a serious and life threatening condition that must be treated promptly and aggressively, i.e. surgically) as well as double ear and double eye infections and too many abscessed teeth to even count. Even after all of that, this little darling was not out of the woods quite yet as during her teeth extractions it was found that the infection had even eaten away into the nasal cavity. Ms. Fancy has been through so much, but she is well on her way to a full recovery. She is a wonderful senior dog and will make a great companion for someone special that we just know is out there waiting to cross her path. Fancy is good with other dogs, cats and loves kids. If you can open your heart to a senior please stop in and meet Fancy.
Jiggy is a male, German Shepherd/Husky mix puppy, approx. 11 weeks old (Feb. 2015). Jiggy joined GGOH's family after he was left to wander and scrounge for food on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. With the threat of death, he was scooped up by dedicated rescue workers in the area and transported to where Gregory's could step in and finish out the rescue. Jiggy is a feisty little guy, all puppy! He's a charmer so be warned; it's highly unlikely that you could come within 10 feet of this little guy and not fall completely in love with him. It's happened to all of us here at GGOH!!
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!
Millie is a female, Border Collie mix puppy, approx. 10 weeks old (Feb.2015). Millie joined GGOH's family after she was left to wander and scrounge for food on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. With the threat of death, she was scooped up by dedicated rescue workers in the area and transported to where Gregory's could step in and finish out the rescue. Millie is very gentle and lovey dovey; she's playful but yet calm. She does well with other dogs; she has yet to be introduced to cats. Such a little sweetheart this one is. Do stop in and see her but be ready to fall in love; it will happen!
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 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. 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.
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. 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). 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. 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, please give us a call and leave a message and someone will contact you as soon as possible. Tucker is currently in a foster situation so we would need time to arrange a personal meeting should you be interested.
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!
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. 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.
