Facts about Gracie

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Gracie is a typical nine-month-old Yellow Lab--energetic, lively, playful, smart, sweet, loving, inquisitive, and occasionally a handful! She obeys the "sit" command like a pro and will sit anywhere, anytime you say it. She also knows she isn't supposed to put her paws up on the counter or steal empty toilet paper rolls, but the temptations are just too much sometimes! But could you blame a young pup for wanting to check things out?

In any case, Gracie is very keen to please her people and learns quickly. All she needs is someone who will commit to teaching her good behaviors and rewarding her with lots of love. She is already walking so much better with the help of the Gentle Leader and her dedicated foster family!

You might have noticed from her photo that Gracie eats in a chair. This is because she has megaesophagus. While the condition is not curable at this point, it is easily managed. We have had multiple dogs with megaesophagus in our care, and they have all thrived with proper care. Basically, Gracie's food needs to be softened to a certain consistency, and she should sit in a special chair while eating and for about fifteen minutes after every meal. Monitoring her water intake as well as keeping her calm after meals would also help.

If you are interested to learn more about megaesophagus, we have a wealth of experience and resources to share! And if you are ready to meet your new adventure pal, Gracie promises to do the best sit for you! She is being fostered in SW Minnesota, and her adoption fee is $350.

About Retrieve a Golden of Minnesota

About Our Rescue Group...

RAGOM has been rescuing pets since 1985! We are a 501(c)(3), all-volunteer organization.
RAGOM’s mission is to rescue and rehome unwanted, abused, neglected, and displaced Golden Retrievers and Golden Retriever mixes, and locate permanent homes for them. We advocate responsible pet ownership and support animal abuse and neglect prevention programs, as well as spay/neuter initiatives.
Rescued dogs receive comprehensive medical care including a complete veterinary exam, updated vaccinations, and a microchip, and each is spayed or neutered prior to adoption. While in RAGOM’s care, dogs live as part of a family in loving foster homes where they are fed, groomed, socialized, and begin to learn basic manners. Foster families provide ongoing temperament assessment for each dog to determine what qualities should be present in an ideal forever home, and then match the dog with an approved adoptive family.
Donations and new volunteers are always welcome!

Come Meet Our Pets...

RAGOM holds several adoption events each month. For more information about upcoming Meet and Greets, please visit our calendar at http://www.ragom.org/events/calendar.html .

Our Adoption Process...

RAGOM requires interested adopters to complete an application online or by mail (application fee is waived for those referred by adoptapet.com), and have a home visit (references, pictures, and/or a video visit may be used in place of a home visit for those applicants who live outside our standard territory). Adopters must sign a contract and pay the adoption fee by check or credit card at the time of adoption. Adoption fees are as follows: Puppy-4 years: $350; 5-8 years: $290, 9 years and over: $145. All dogs, including puppies, are altered before adoption.
RAGOM is an all-volunteer organization. We try to respond to all inquires within 48 hours!
