Available Dogs

***ADOPTION PENDING***

Gretchen, #23-06, is a petite Black and White Boston (approx. 12-15 lbs) believed to be 5 years old. Sheís a curious little pup, letting the pack in her foster home lead the way. She enjoys the company of her canine siblings and has two small, energetic children in the home. With their energy levels, she has been somewhat keeping her distance. We think sheíll do very well in a home with older children that are dog savvy and respectful of rules and boundaries. Gretchen does not startle at all with loud noises, crashing toys or crying, so sheís tolerant of varied environments.

She has shown no food, people, or toy aggression in her foster home. She is a bit hand shy, but does allow handling. Once on your lap or next to you, she accepts petting favorably. She is battling a UTI and had a suspected "Open Pyometra" which was immediately addressed via spay surgery. Because of this, we cannot speak to her potential as far as housebreaking; however, her affinity to pee on soft things (towels, blankets, wee wee pads) is a good sign for the future. This is still work in progress.

Gretchen shows great promise of being that perfect little companion. While she gets along beautifully with other dogs... she is not a cuddler so she would be okay in a home with or without other animals. She is sweet and has so much enthusiasm when she greets you... her little tail-less bum wiggles with all of the joy a Boston Terrier can muster.

Gretchen has been spayed, fully vetted and is pending a dental, date yet to be scheduled. She will be ready for adoption 72 hours afterwards. Gretchen is being offered to new applicants as well as previously approved applicants, her adoption fee is $375.

GMPR Welcomes Billy, #23-03, not your average Pug, heís a 10 month old male Schnoodle weighing in at 11 lbs who made his way to GMPR from a shelter.

Hello everyone, Iím Billy! Iím a happy, curious little guy and Iíve been told Iím just as cute as a button. I was going for the rough and rugged look, so I needed a haircut pretty bad when the fine folks of GMPR brought me in. My foster mom (amateur groomer extraordinaire) accepted the challenge and I am feeling it, I look amazing! In my foster home I have a buddy that came with me from the shelter, a permanent canine resident and a cat or two. I get along with them all just fine. Iím happy to share my toys, space and I donít even get bothered when others get too close to me while Iím eating. I mean címon, whatís the big deal? Iíve learned that food is great but treats are AMAZING and I want everyone to learn that for themselves. My foster mom is pretty great, she pets and snuggles me and I love it, I hope all moms and dads do that. I donít mind going into a crate when youíre not home or when I go to bed at night, but I promise to learn your trust so hopefully one day I can sleep in bed with you and do my duty to guard the house while youíre away. Iím thinking if I get this housetraining thing down Iíll get my chance.

Billy would do just fine in a home with or without a pet for companionship. He has not been tested with children, but weíre confident he would do just fine in a home with older, dog savvy kids that appreciate and respect boundaries. He has been fully vetted, neutered and is ready for his forever home.

Billyís adoption fee is $550.

GMPR welcomes #23-09 Gus to the family.

Gus is a distinguished gentleman at 12 years old who was surrendered in love when his previous owner could no longer give him the care he deserves. Heís got the typical senior pug issues, arthritis, vision & hearing issues. Heís housetrained so long as kept on a schedule, he alerts you when itís time to go out. He wants peace and quiet as well as all of your attention, so a home with no young children would be best suited for him. He is not aggressive but his days of active play are behind him, a home with a calm dog or no dog at all would be ideal. He loves his person and wants to be with them at all times, so someone home more often than not, or only gone for short periods of time would check all the boxes on his bucket list. You can touch, pet, tug, trim anything, he offers no resistance. He just wants your lap and frequent treats.

Gus has a very sweet temperament and is super friendly, he is fully vetted and looking for his retirement home. Gus is currently taking Carprofen 25mg 2xday, as well as Gabapentin 100mg 2pills 2xday. The costs for these medications vary depending on your vet, location or online pharmacy of choice. Chewy offers Carprofen for $15 a month, where 1800 pet meds offers Gabapentin also for $15 a month.

His adoption fee is $250.

GMPR Welcomes #23-10 Ember to the family.

Ember is a 2 year old female Pug weighing between 12-16 lbs who was surrendered in love when her previous family could no longer care for her.

Hello everyone, Iím Ember! I have a couple other dogs in my new home and while theyíre cool, the typical meet and greet (butt sniff) is fine, I can take them or leave them. They go nuts over these squeaky things called toys, I have no idea what all the fuss is over. My main focus is FOOD! And your lap, but FOOD, TREATS and FOOD mostly. I have been sleeping in one of those crates at night and while my foster mom is away. Iím told I need to work on my potty training. It wasnít such a big deal at my last home. My foster mom puts these wee wee pads on the floor and I hit the target most times. Playtime outside is great! So great and so many new smells to smell that I sometimes forget Iím supposed to pee when Iím out there. OK, so outside=potty, got it. New house, new rules. All in all, this new home has been pretty cool. Iím going to work the program, follow the rules and try to impress the heck out of my new foster mom. I promise to apply myself and I WILL get there. All you have to do is give me the chance.

While Ember is new to our rescue and weíre still learning more about her, we think she would do well in almost any home environment. Sheís a bit shy at first but non-reactive and simply goes with the flow. She would do great with another dog for companionship or as the only dog in the home. Ember is very food/treat motivated, this is and will continue to be helpful in her training. Ember just needs a family of her own to offer her plenty of love, exercise and attention. And while her previous owner relayed she was good with both, she has not been tested with cats or children during her time at GMPR. Weíre confident she would do just fine in a home with older, dog savvy kids that appreciate and respect boundaries. She is scheduled for her spay early April and will then be available for adoption. Stay tuned for more updates on EmberÖ.

Emberís adoption fee is $500.

GMPR Welcomes #23-07 Geno, a 5 year old male Boston Terrier (approx.. 15 lbs).

Hello everyone, Iím Geno! Iím new to this whole loving home environment thing, but itís pretty great! I have a couple other dogs in my new home and while I love their company, Iím still trying to figure out ďappropriate playĒ as my foster mom would call it. Listen, I like to hump. I feel itís a compliment, others disagree. Toys and treats are amazing and Iíll do anything for them. Iíve been wearing a wrap around my belly while in the house, apparently youíre not supposed to pee indoors? Lots of new rules here, but Iím trying to fit in. I have been sleeping in one of those crates at night and while my foster mom is away. Iím working on my social skills and I am trying real hard to nail this whole outside = potty thing. Meal time is a breeze and I donít mind sharing space with others while I eat. All in all, this new home has been pretty cool and I love the idea of a place to hang my leash and call my own. Speaking of leashes, Iím currently not a fan per se, but again, all new things here and Iím trying. Iím going to work the program, follow the rules and try to impress the heck out of my new foster mom. I promise to apply myself and I WILL get there. All you have to do is give me the chance. Oh, and a fenced in yard would be preferred.

Geno has been evaluated for a potential seizure condition. His bloodwork came back great and he is not currently on any seizure preventive medication, he has had at least one confirmed seizure. We will continue to monitor and update his bio as/if we learn more. Geno is new to our rescue and his personality is still developing, but we think he would do well as the only dog in the home, or, with a submissive canine for companionship. This is based on our evaluation of his doggy social skills up to this point. Geno is doing better on a leash, although not 100% leash trained, there is definite progress. His potty training is improving, but not without accidents. Geno is a sweetheart to humans, he wants nothing more than to be loved and given attention. He has learned to appreciate toys and treats and with the proper direction, this will be very helpful in his training. Geno is a great dog and is looking for a quiet home where he can gain the confidence to be his best self. He is a cat chaser, and has not been tested with children. But weíre confident he would do just fine in a home with older, dog savvy kids that are not easily knocked over due to his excited jumping. Heís learning his manners, but tends to try and take what he wants, even if youíre holding it. This could lead to unintended knockdowns or nips to a toddler. He is scheduled for a neuter in late March.

Genoís adoption fee is $375.
