Meet Lance. Lance will be 9 years old this May but he still has his young, fun personality. He is approximately 55 lbs. He originally came to us a few years ago from Windsor Humane society and was returned due to his adoptors starting a family sooner than expected. Lance is an eager to please, loving dog who does really well with commands, sit, stay, down, come and paw (especially when there is a treat involved). Lance would do best in a quiet single dog home of 1-2 people, with no small children or cats.

Lance loves hikes and walks and does really well walking on his gentle leader. He is quite obedient and will sit and patiently wait to cross the street. Lance does have a thing for squirrels though and all his leash manners tend to go out the window when he sees them. He has done some off leash hikes in the forest and has great recall, he may stray away to explore but never goes too far and always comes when called. He has a history of being aggressive towards other dogs although his foster mom has yet to see it, moving off the sidewalk or trail to let the other dog pass he seems indifferent but sometimes curious, distracting him with a treat or two helps.

Lance gets anxious in busy situations. He doesn't like when there is a lot going on with people interacting, it stresses him out. His anxiety is demonstrated in whining, spinning in circles, and jumping up when he gets really worked up. He has a thunder shirt that he can wear when visitors come over which does help to keep him a bit calmer.

Lance does great in the car. In his current foster home he is left free to roam while his foster mom is at work and is just content to sleep or chew on his bone. Lance loves snuggles and is very content just snuggling up on the couch and watching a movie.

Lance is available for adoption through Grand River All Breed Animal Rescue. The adoption donation is $375. All of our dogs are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated as part of their adoption. Please fill out our Adoption Form if you are interested. You can also reach us by email at

About Grand River All Breed Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

As a non-profit animal rescue group our focus is:

To adopt dogs, cats and other companion animals into suitable homes.

To ensure that all dogs and cats placed by our rescue are spayed and neutered to ensure that we are not contributing to the pet overpopulation problem.

To promote responsible and healthy pet care, including humane training techniques and healthy diets.
to rescue animals from over-crowded shelters and the streets.

Our members are understanding and caring people who are pet owners and caregivers. They understand the care and attention that pets require but also how fulfilling (if occasionally challenging) a life with pets can be. We're not here just for the animals, but for their owners as well!

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our pets are all located in foster homes and an application must be approved in order to meet one of our pets.

Our Adoption Process...

Grand River All Breed Rescue's adoption process involves an adoption application, reference checks, and discussion about the potential adoptive home, including a home visit. We follow this process as we do have a responsibility to ensure that we place each pet in a home that is suitable and committed to caring for the pet for the rest of its' life.

We match our rescues to their new homes, and filling out an adoption application, or proceeding with our adoption process does not guarantee the acceptance of an adoption application. We reserve the right to refuse an applicant for any reason, at our discretion.

Please note that once we begin an application, we hope to have it completed within a couple days, based upon availability, particularly of your references. We are just as excited to find our pets their forever home as you are to adopt!

All GRAB animal require an adoption donation. Our adoption donations help us to pay for the many costs associated with rescuing animals, including veterinary bills, food, litter and other pet supplies, and administrative costs. The majority of our animals are adopted out for less than what it cost us to rescue them, and we do not make money on our pets. All adoption donations go directly back into our account which allows us to continue rescuing animals.

Currently our adoption donation for dogs is $375 and for cats is $175. Rabbits are adopted out for $60 and are spayed or neutered. Please ask us about adoption fees for other small pets, including guinea pigs, degus, etc.

For dogs and cats, our adoption donation includes a veterinary exam, vaccines, deworming and flea treatment (if needed), spay or neuter and microchip.
