Pork Chop

Meet Pork Chop!

Pork Chop is a very sweet American Staffordshire Terrier. He gets along great with humans but is very selective about what dogs he likes. He loves to play with rope toys and squeaky toys, and enjoys every second of being able to hang out with humans! He's kid friendly too, but we do recommend kids older than 5 years. 

Pork Chop is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. He was previous heartworm positive, and has completed treatment. He will need to be rechecked in 6 months, and stay on continued monthly preventative to prevent reinfection.

Alvin

Meet Alvin!
 

Alvin is a 7 year old Pittie / Lab mix. Alvin is deaf, but guess what- according to his previous owners- he knows some sign language!
 

As you can see, Alvin is a playful guy- tennis balls being his favorite. He seems to want to play with the other dogs here at the shelter- as always if you have another dog, a meet and greet is required! He has not been cat tested.
 

Alvin is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. He still needs to be heartworm checked. Due to him being deaf, we recommend families with older children.
 

Deaf dogs rely more on visual cues than hearing dogs, and can startle more easily. We recommend a fenced in yard for Alvin, or a family that will plan on leash walking him. This boy would make a great companion!

Hopper

Meet Hopper!

 

Hopper was abandoned in our outdoor play area in the middle of the night with 4 of his siblings. He was originally very fearful, but has started to trust humans and has become rather friendly and loving. Hopper is estimated to be a terrier mix- he is absolutely adorable with his big ears and wirey hair. He is not kid friendly, as he tends to become reactive.

 

Hopper is neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and heartworm negative.

Hercules

This handsome fella’s name is Hercules- and he knows he’s a cutie! 

Hercules is a 1 1/2 year old Lab / Heeler mix. He’s a pretty low energy boy, and likes to just hang out and look super photogenic. When he’s not laying around the yard, he does enjoy a nice game of fetch and to go for walks. 

Hercules lived with other dogs and cats, and children in his previous home. The owner said that it was only since they started going through a divorce that he started getting more aggressive with the other dogs in the house. We believe he will do well in a house that doesn't already have stressful vibes from something like a divorce. He's a sweet dog! 

Hercules is neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and heartworm negative.

Brady

Meet Brady- the adorable hippo dog!

Brady is around 4 years old, and is an adorable Pibble / Corgi mix- a very stout boy! He is very loving, and loves to go for a ride in the car, play fetch, and adores treats! Brady thinks he's a lap dog, and will try his best to snuggle up close to his humans. He loves to give kisses and snuggles. He is just a very affectionate boy! Give him a belly rub? He'll love you 'till the end of time!

Brady gets nervous around small children, so we recommend kids 12+. Brady wants to be the alpha dog in the room, so a meet and greet is required if you have another pup! 

He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and heartworm negative.

Gravy

Meet Gravy!

Are you looking for a Netflix lover? A film connoisseur? Gravy is your guy!

Gravy is one of our Day Foster dogs, and while at that home he did not bark at all. He checked out the whole back yard, nose to the ground, and then just chilled out with the foster lady the rest of the time and watched Netflix. He's a huge fan of Sitcoms.

Gravy is a great dog. While here at the shelter, he seems frustrated when he sees other dogs and can't play with them. He was the only dog in his previous home, so if you have another dog a meet and greet is required. 

Other than his love of entertainment media, Gravy loves to play fetch, and loves treats. His previous owner did say that he tends to be an escape artist, so we recommend a home with a fenced in yard OR strict leash walks. 

Gravy is neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and heartworm negative.

Mable

Meet Mable!

Mabel is a german shepherd mix that we transferred here from an animal control facility in Ohio. She was in that facility for a month and her owners never came to get her. She is a very sweet girl approximately 7 years old. She knows sit, shake, and down, and keeps a very clean kennel (appears to be house broken). She loves squeaky toys, treats, and chew bones. 

She's learning how to properly walk on a leash and not pull. She does have a high prey drive and will chase smaller dogs or cats, so we recommend a fur-sibling that's her size or bigger. A meet and greet is required before adoption.

She is spayed, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and heartworm negative.

Lady

Meet Lady!

Lady is a fancy girl- she loves to be dressed up in clothes, lounge on the sofa, early bedtimes, and soft treats (no crunch for this Lady!)

Lady needs to be the only pet in the home as she gets nervous around other animals. She was surrendered due to another animal being brought into the home, and her mental health began to decline. Lady is a great dog that needs to be set up for success, and needs to be the only pet in the home to do so! 

She has been going to day foster, and we've noticed that Lady loved to be around the foster's husband, and would constantly look for him when he went inside. We think she would be a great fit for a single guy or a dog savvy couple who is looking for a dog that will love them with her whole heart!

She is spayed, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and heartworm negative.

Russell

Meet Russell!

Russell is a very sweet 1 year old Pit Bull mix. He and his brother and sister (Spot and Luna) were surrendered because the owner couldn't find homes for them. They were the last 3 of the litter. 

This sweet boy was returned to the shelter due to his previous owners separating. Being in a home environment really helped his previous shelter anxiety, as he is a lot more calm- he was already a low-energy boy to begin with! 

Russell is a total couch potato. He loves to go on walks and play with tennis balls. He is cat, dog, and kid friendly! If you are interested in giving Russell a FUREVER home- come and visit!

 

Russell is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and heartworm negative.

Louie

Meet Louie!

Louie is a very sweet Pittie mix. He was picked up by Animal Control, and although the owners were called, they didn't want to come pick him up. So we took him in here at GHHS!

Louie is SO sweet and we just know we can find a great home for him! He gets along great with other dogs, and is friendly to humans as well. We are not sure about cats yet, but because he's a bit ole tank, we think he'd be great with kids over the age of 5 years. We're working on his leash skills- he's not the best but he's getting there!

This guy is such a goofball-we just know that he'll make a great family pet!

Louie is neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and heartworm negative.

Kaori

Meet Kaori!

Kaori is a full-pedigree Siberian Husky that was surrendered to GHHS. She is very friendly and active- her favorite activities include swimming and playing fetch. According to her previous family, Kaori has lived with other dogs and children. Like most Huskies, she has a high prey drive and is not cat friendly. 

We strongly recommend that potential adopters for Kaori have a fenced in yard, as her previous owner mentioned that she has been know to roam. We ask that potential adopters have knowledge or experience with the Husky breed, as they are not for everyone.

Kaori is a surprisingly low-energy husky. She's very intelligent- knows her name, and comes when called- and knows how to sit and stay!

Kaori is spayed, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and heartworm negative.

Bobbi

Meet Bobbi!

Bobbi was abandoned in our outdoor play area in the middle of the night with 4 of her siblings. She was originally very fearful, but has started to trust humans and has become rather friendly and loving. We estimate Bobbi to be a miniature-pinscher mix. She needs someone to give her a little bit of patience so she can warm up to people due to her past. 

Bobbi is spayed, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and heartworm negative.
