Oh, our adorable girl, Gretchen.

This scruffy-faced medium sized Bussels Griffon mix was found with 5 other females (most likely sisters) who were in an owner surrender group at a very rural shelter with no hope for adoption.  Rescuers in the Dallas area worked tirelessly to get these adorable girls into rescue before their time was up.

Gretchen was one of those adorable scruffy, underweight and heartworm positive girls who now has the chance at a fabulous life.  Gretchen has completed her heartworm treatment, learned that indoor life is fabulous and she is her Foster Mom's shadow, or velcro dog, as she is lovingly referred.

Gretchen is crate trained, house trained and is a loving member of her temporary family.  She enjoys lounging on the large dog bed in the sun, when the family is outside working in the yard. She is also a great companion for tv watching, dinner cooking and book reading.  Wherever you are, that is where Gretchen wants to be.

Going for a car ride?  Drive through Starbucks an option?  Quick trip to Home Depot for new plants?  Gretchen wants to go along.  She loves serving as co-pilot --- has since day 1 of her Freedom Ride.  She watched out the windshield as we drove them back into Dallas.  She loves the car.

Gretchen is still learning that new experiences are okay.  With some treats and nudges of encouragement she can go anywhere.  She has picked up on leash training very quickly.  She now walks through doorways with a little encouragement and loves meeting new people and new dogs.  She just doesn't enjoy her foster mom being too far out of sight.

We are looking for a family for Gretchen who understands that Gretchen may never be a 100% brave dog who can take on the world without some caution.  But, with the right human by her side and maybe a sidekick in the home, she will make an amazingly loyal canine companion.

Gretchen does have a tendency to want the human to herself, so she would love to be an only dog.  But she currently lives with other dogs and would do well if the other dog had a human of their own.  She would love a friend to run zoomies with or who can play chase with her, but in the end, her whole heart belongs to her human.

If you would like to meet Gretchen, please begin the process by filling out an Adoption Application on our website.  Gretchen's birthday is approximately September 15, 2015.

About Take Me Home Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Take Me Home Pet Rescue is a 100% nonprofit organization committed to reducing the homeless pet population by removing dogs and cats from shelters and other unfortunate situations and having them spayed, neutered, vaccinated and microchipped before being adopted to their forever families.

We consists of a small core group of volunteers who care about the welfare of our homeless pets. We are located in Richardson, Texas and survive solely from your generous donations and fundraiser's (after fundraiser...after fundraiser!). All of our pets live in our homes as we do not have an actual facility. Because they live within the dynamics of the foster families and are exposed to children of all ages and other pets, we find that that our foster cats and dogs are more adoptable as they have already been socialized to live in a family environment.

We have been in existence since April 2008 and have already rescued over 600 dogs and cats from local kill shelters and other unfortunate situations.

All dogs and cats are spayed and neutered before being adopted. These pets also receive all appropriate vaccinations and are microchipped. In effort to reduce the possibility of the pet being returned, adopters are carefully screened to be sure that the personality of both the pet and adopter are a good match.

Our Adoption Process...

All applications are submitted to an adoption board for approval to ensure a happy forever home for both owner and pet. In effort to reduce the possibility of the pet being returned, adopters are carefully screened to be sure that the personality of both the pet and adopter are a good match. We will be in contact with you during this process.

Puppies are ready to go home after their 2nd of 3 shots and spay/neuter are complete. A $50 deposit will hold the puppy of your choice. The 3rd. shot is included in the adoption fee.

All pets are to be kept as indoor, non-working, members of your family and are spayed and neutered before being adopted. These pets also receive all appropriate vaccinations and are microchipped.

A safe pet home visit is included in the adoption fee.
