CHARCOAL

I'M ON TRIAL

Charcoal is a delightful two-year old lab mix.  She is very friendly and gets along well with other dogs.  She is very patient, even with little ones who “love” her a lot.  She knows basic commands, and is excellent in the house, quiet for such a young lab.  She promises to be a wonderful family dog.

Murphy

I'M ON TRIAL

Murphy is a 2yr old lab collie mix.  Murphy has a lot of energy and loves to be loved on.  Murphy is very affectionate and loyal.  He is able to live with other dogs.  He is currently in foster care with two older dogs.  Please contact us for even more details.

BUDDY

I'M ON TRIAL

PICTURE TO FOLLOW

Buddy is a 6yr old yellow lab. He is extremely calm and is excellent with children and other dogs.  His favorite thing to do is play ball.

JACK

YA I'M ON TRIAL

Jack is a lovely  9 yr old yellow lab in excellent condition. Jack is too wonderuful of a dog to still be in foster care.  He is sure there is a family that will take him and love him thru his older years.  He is kind, polite and has great house manners.  He doesn't even require a kennel when left alone.  He does ask that you not have any cats as they are just to tempting.  He does well with older children, other dogs or as an only.  Please consider Jack as your loving companion. 

KENZIE

I'M ADOPTED

Kenzie is a one year old yellow lab mix.  She has been returned to GRRF and is again available.  She is a smaller size yellow lab.  She originally came from a place where she lived in a closet.  She has recovered nicely from this experience but it did leave her reactive to new dogs. She is currently in foster care with two other dogs and is doing well so all is not lost.  She would do well to be in a house where she is the only dog.  She is great with kids and full of energy.

Kyra

YA I'M ADOPTED

Kyra is a seven year old lab/golden cross.  Kyra is another one of those special older dogs that is in need of tender loving care.  She is worthy of being loved through her older years.  She is hoping to find that family who will love her as she is.  She doesn't have the best hips in the world and is working on putting on some much needed weight.  She isn't perfect but is very happy, gentle, and loving. She loves people and gets along well with other dogs.

 

PEBBLES

I'M ADOPTED

Pebbles is an 8-year-old female Golden. In the pictures she looks like a lion because she was shaved due to being very matted and dirty.  When her hair grows back she will again be a pretty little golden.  Pebbles has the kindest, most patient temperament. She is great with small children and loves to play with other dogs.  She likes walking with her person and does well on leash.

Pebbles will be a great family dog.

COLE

PLACED

While Cole doesn't meet the criteria of a golden he did come into our lives and is worthy of being adopted by a loving family.  Cole is a 2yr old male Akita/Chow mix.  He is great with other dogs and has a very happy sweet disposition.  He would like to stay away from homes that have small children but doesn't mind teenagers.  If you are interested please contact Susan Sampson (388-3477) to schedule a visit.

Tiffany and Ladybug

WE'RE ADOPTED :)

Tiffany and Ladybug (Tiff and Bug)are two old friends. Tiff is a 12yr old yellow lab and Bug is a 9yr old black lab. They come from the Anchorage shelter where they had languished for some time; folks thought they are just "too old." Old girls need love too! They are a delightful pair, and really should remain together; they really are BFF's. Both are in excellent health and have had vet checks and been spayed. Though Bug is more energetic than Tiff they both like to play. They get along well with other dogs.They are sweet tempered and love any little attention given to them. Both have excellent house manners. A family with older children is recommended.

ZEUS

I'M ADOPTED

Zeus is a 8 month old boxer lab mix. Zeus came to us from a family with children. He is a very kind dog with excellent house manners. He has also been around cats with no notable issues.

MURPHY

I'M ADOPTED

Murphy is a 9yr old male Golden Retreiver.  Great dog.  Good house manners and good with kids.  He also loves to go for walks.

 

 

EBONY

I'M ADOPTED

PICTURE TO FOLLOW

Ebony is a nice size 7 month old black lab mix. She is very friendly with good house manners.  Just don't leave the dryer sheets or paper on the floor.  :)

She is a little nervous being outside by herself and likes to have you with her while she is outside.

 

WYATT

I'M ADOPTED

Wyatt is a 3.5 year old golden. He is very affectionate and would love nothing more than to get loved on and be your shadow. He like most goldens has to bring you something when he greets you. If he cant find a toy he will just bring you his tail. He would do best in a home with no other dogs or children. 

KENAI

I'M ADOPTED

Kenai is a about a 2yr old 80lb Chesapeake/Lab/Golden mix. He is a true young lab full of energy. He came from a family with kids and settles nicely when he is by himself. 

 

GOOGLE

I'M ADOPTED

2yr old spayed female, Lab boxer cross. Google is calm and quiet.  She thrives in a more mature and quiet natured home. She is very affectionate.  She will come up to you, put her head on your lap and wait for you to love on her.  She gets along with other dogs and all of her time in foster care has been in homes with two dogs.  Google is an amazing dog deserving of a loving family.

 

 

CHOLE

I'M ADOPTED

Chole is an 9 yr old yellow lab.  She is very mellow and loves to just hang out with the family. She is well mannered and will make a great addition to someones family.  She has spent just about all of her life living with children.

HOUSTON

I'M ADOPTED

Houston is a 2 years old Golden Retriever.  He has a very  sweet disposition and the exuberance of a true golden.  He is kind with kids and other dogs.  He is good on and off leash. He sticks close on walks and comes when called. He has good basic obedience, including a good start to a stay command.  He can  be left free in the house, but will kennel if asked.  He chews appropriate toys and likes to carry things in his mouth. Houston is a coddler and likes nothing better than throwing himself at your side on the couch!  

 

DUKE

I'M ADOPTED

Duke is a 3 yr old yellow lab.  Duke is a tall lab and could be considered leggy.  He is calm and well mannered.

 

SASHA

I'M ADOPTED

Sasha is a seven-year-old pure Chocolate Lab.  She is full of energy and in great shape. She loves to be with people and has wonderful house manners. Sasha is looking for home where she will be the only dog in the house.  She unfortunately does not do well being around other dogs.  We know there is that special home that will love her for who she is.

 

 

MIA

I'M ADOPTED

Mia is a seven-year-old Lab/Dalmatian mix. She is small, weighing around 40 lbs. She has no health issues. She is very affectionate and enjoys nothing more than a snuggle on the couch.  She gets along well with other dogs, but is way too interested in cats, so a home without one might be best. She is extremely tolerant of  “lots of love” from children and would be a great family pet. She is completely housetrained and will signal a need to go outside.  She is truly low maintenance.  A fenced yard would be best unless her “forever family” is outside with her as she does have a tendency to wander off to visit the neighborhood.

CHARLIE

I'M ADOPTED

Charlie is a big hearted black lab in a pint size package.  He is one and a half years old and only weighs about 50lbs.  He is great with kids, other dogs, anything.  He is easy going and a little heart stealer.  He has been recovering from some major pelvis surgery a few months back; consequently he has a little hitch in his gitty-up but doesn't miss a beat or a treat! 

 

SARGE

I'M ADOPTED

9 week old lab/husky mix.

HANK

I'M ADOPTED

Hank is a wonderful 4yr old golden.  Playful, happy, calm and silly.  Loves to roll around on his ball and go for walks in the woods.  Hank loves the snow!  He is calm in the house, doesn’t chew or get into things.  He would prefer to be the only dog in the family as he does not do well living with other dogs. He is totally devoted to humans.  Hank loves to go with and would be great for someone who needs a buddy 24/7.

9 week old lab/husky mix.
