Story
A quite shy youngster rescued with his 2 brothers, the first three taken from a neglectful "home" where all 17 dogs were left out in a 4x8 tiny yard as a result of a broken marriage and a resentful husband left with the dogs. Water and food provided, that's it - for a year. These three brothers want to learn about love and being cared for! They deserve everything, need grooming, good nutrition, veterinary care, learning about walking on a leash eventually, once they relax and trust, and know love. We are looking for homes with plenty of time to devote and plenty of patience. These pups have never been alone, without other dogs/family members - so they need to catch up on people time...and would love to have a friendly, sweet little dog buddy too! We are gathering applications for these boys as they are set to get a full makeover on Wednesday, May 22nd!

Story
Ginsburg may have been an adventurer in his youth, exploring the city in search of excitement and street snacks, but now he's ready for the comforts of a warm, loving home. Having seriously neglected his beauty routines during his wild phase, Ginsburg is now being pampered with soapy baths, a stylish buzz cut, skin-soothing meds, and soul-soothing cuddles. He's just the sweetest, friendliest guy around, and is clearly so happy to finally be cared for and comfortable. Ginsberg gets along great with other dogs! He has a decent amount of energy for a senior and would love regular adventures and walkies. He is very sweet and adorable! Here's some notes from his foster: Ginsburg is wonderful!! He is quick to learn good behaviors. When it comes to potty training, he tried to aim at the pee pads. I have been taking him out for walks and he spends a lot of time in the garden so he gets a lot of opportunities to do it outside. Over the weekend, he looked at me and quietly squeaked while walking towards the back door. I followed and, while standing next to the door, I asked if he wanted to go outside and he started wagging his tail so I took him outside. Since then, this is how he is letting me know he needs to go outside! Also, he doesn't need to go to the bathroom at night! I get a full night sleep and have to wake him up in the morning to take him out. He saw that Benji sleeps with me in my bed so now when he wants to get on the bed, he will look at me and squeak quietly and wag his tail. He sleeps with me and Benji in my bed and had NEVER had any accidents! Yes he is verbal while on a walk but I experimented a bit and decided to take him for walks with treats (he LOVES them) and if I see someone approaching us or if he sees someone from a distance, I reach for the treat and his whole attention is on the treat only and getting more. I probably won't be able to train him not to be verbal on walks in the couple of weeks he will be with me but if there is a person who falls in love with him, I don't think having to carry treats in a pocket is a big deal. He can be both active or a couch potato (whichever you prefer). When I work, he will sleep. When i take him for walks, he has as much energy as Benji; he can even walk as fast as Benji if you let him. He is great on the leash (but don't forget to have treats in your pocket). He can do stairs with no problems but he is also comfortable if I want to carry him.

Story
Chloe is a sweet 2 1/2yr old, 11 lb Maltipoo who has been such a joy to foster. She came into rescue with some pretty bad injuries after being hit by a car. With a broken pelvis and front leg, Chloe was in pain and had been living with it for some time. Chloe's front leg healed with a case, and her pelvis rested and she had an FHO (femoral head ostectomy) surgery which should give her a better future. Chloe has been living with our 4 dogs and three cats harmoniously. She is playful with the dogs and gentle and respectful with our cats. Chloe is has done well with potty training but has had a few accidents when she couldn’t get out in time due to no fault of her own. She loves being in the back yard and loves toys and safe things to chew on.  She loves to be with us and loves going in the car and to outdoor cafes. We have taken her to friends' houses many times and she is a perfect guest. Chloe still needs some practice on leash walks. She can be leash reactive with some dogs. Chloe is responsive to corrections when being bossy with other dogs and has gotten jealous a few times. She is very loving and likes to be close to her people. Chloe would do great in a home with another resident dog and older children. She’s fine with cats and sleeps happily in the same bed with them. We also feel strongly that Chloe needs to go to a home with a fenced yard.  We adore this girl and know that she will be great joy to her new family. Please feel free to ask us any questions you have about Chloe  Grateful Dogs Rescue incurs substantial veterinary and other expenses in rescuing our dogs. In order to recoup some of these costs, we request a tax-deductible donation for each adoption. The suggested donation for Chloe is $500. If you are interested in adopting Chloe, please complete our online adoption application at https://www.gratefuldogsrescue.org/adoption-process/ . One of our volunteers will get back to you. Adoptions are local, confined to the SF Bay Area. May 19, 2024, 1:02 am
