Hi! I'm Gerry with a G. I used to live in Texas where I became homeless and ended up at a shelter which was very scary and I was sad. But then someone at Saving Grace saw me and knew I didn't belong in a shelter. The nice people at Saving Grace moved mountains to get me to Maryland. If you follow Saving Grace on Facebook you will see that I was one of the lucky 7 who was part of "Puppy Gras." Two amazing volunteers met us in New Orleans and drove us from New Orleans all the way to Maryland. That must mean I'm a special pup!

My foster mom tells me how handsome and cute I am. I guess I will have to take her word on that because I can't see. Yes, I'm blind, but I'm still a regular dog. Laying out in the sun and exploring the backyard are my all-time favorite things to do. My nose is SUPER CHARGED! I also love to lean against you, go for walks (I'm still a little slow), and snuggle. Oh yeah, and I can't forget my favorite - I LOVE to eat! I even stole mom's dinner once - ha ha ha. What can I say, I love steak! Apparently she wasn’t too angry because she takes me swimming every two weeks. She says it helps with my joints and muscles. I love the water!

I do have a difficult time hearing. At 10 years of age (give or take a year or two), I can hear a little and Mom jokes that it's because I'm a male and, therefore, have selective hearing. The vet said that when I came to the shelter my ears were so impacted with dirt and yuck that they had to be cleaned DAILY for two weeks straight. Once this was taken care of, they noticed an improvement in my hearing. I am also Heartworm positive, have a little arthritis, and a few lumps (but that just mean there's more of me to love). The doctor said my bloodwork looked really good, even better than his. I also had x-rays of my lungs and the doctor gave me the "ok" to have regular Heartworm treatment instead of the very cautious method that is used for dogs with a more serious case or other health problems. We were very excited to hear that and I will be getting that soon. Saving Grace will be paying for this treatment.

While I am waiting to complete this last step, I am looking to find my forever family, a family I can spend the rest of my days with just being someone's boy. I get along with other dogs in the house but they must have patience with me while I get used to my surroundings. I am housebroken but need a regular schedule. I would do better in a home without small children, as fast movement towards me are still scary. Won't you give this ol' boy a chance? I promise to love you all of my days.

❤️ Gerry (remember, that's Gerry with a G)

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption application process for cats may take up to seven days, but will often be less. Since a home visit is required for dogs, the process may take slightly longer (often not more than 2 weeks). Application Forms are available under the ADOPT tab of our website ( Please complete the application and click submit. You will receive a message that the application was submitted. The process consists of your completion of an adoption application, our review of the application and contacting relevant references, verifying the application information, a home visit (dogs only) and then contacting you with a decision about approval. Once the application approved, you will be put in contact with the foster to set up a meet and greet.

We understand the desire to meet our animals as soon as possible but because we operate entirely out of foster homes, we need to limit pet visitation to approved applicants only. Once your application is completed by you and approved by Saving Grace, we will be glad to schedule your visit.
