"Old dogs, like old shoes, are comfortable.
They might be a bit out of shape and a little worn around the edges, but they fit well."

Just in.  Dean is an over-sized 10 monrh old red doberman puppy.  Neutered, up-to-date on shots and heart worm free.  This precious boy was surrendered to us for chasing cats and horses.  He is now in a foster home with cats and horses and is being trained on how to co-exist.  We are happy to report he is doing very well with both.  He is scheduled to begin formal obedience classes soon.  If you are interested, you probably should go ahead and get your application in.





Welcome, Marco! This gorgeous young guy is fairly new to GCDR, but has already gone through an amazing transformation from a skeleton to Mr. Casanova. He is only two years old. Marco is beyond lovely, so get those apps in for him soon since this boy won't last long! 





"Cameron "
Hi, my name is Cameron. I'm only about a year old but I've had a lifetime of misery. I was first owned by someone who went to jail and I was loose in the neighborhood fending for myself for a while. Then I was taken in by another family but I was chained outside with only a metal cargo box to sleep in - in the dead of winter. When rescue found out about me, they offered to take me in. I was painfully thin and had developed pneumonia - probably because I was exposed to wet cold conditions and my body was too weak to fight off an upper respiratory infection. I've been in rescue for about a month now and I'm still coughing - but I'm getting better with medications and lots of TLC. I am a little food aggressive with other dogs because I had to fight or not eat for a while. I'm beginning to learn that meals are regular around here and getting better about my eating habits. I'm crate trained and love living inside with heat and air-conditioning and a soft warm blanket. I'm very good around all people. I have not been tested with cats but I'm young enough that I could probably learn to live in harmony with them. I will be neutered as soon as I recover from my pneumonia. Please watch for updates from me. If you think I might be someone you'd love to make a member of your family, go ahead and fill out an on-line application and ask for me, Cameron.

Cameron has finished his heartworm treatment and has been neutered. His heartworm treatment had to be done in two stages due to the alergic reaction his body was having to the heart worms. But he has now FINALLY been given the green light to resume normal puppy activities! Too bad the weather isn't better for him. But this boy isn't complaining - he knows his life is so much better than when he was living in that box! Cameron is a great dog. He is not too big (around 65 pounds) but has a big attitude and would not do well with another large male dog. But he loves the ladies (dogs) and is OK with our small dog. Cameron is great with people. He is good with anyone invited into our home but will alert us if a stranger is at the door. Cameron is now ready for a home of his own. Could he be just who you are looking for? .
