Meet Casper!

 

Casper is a 6 month old Cane Corso / Pit Bull mix. (He's pretty small for having those two breeds in him). He's pure white, except for the black spots he has on his ears. He's SO sweet. He was surrendered because of breed restrictions from his owner's landlord. He's a loving pup that enjoys playing tug with ropes, and squeaky toys as well.

 

He's good with kids, and loves all the attention he can get. He has not been tested with cats.

 

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

Mayo

Meet Mayo!

Mayo came to GHHS from Detroit Animal Care and Control. He is just around a year old and estimated to be an American Bulldog mix. Mayo came to us with some behavior/obedience issues and has come so far thanks to his Day Foster Mom! He has been working hard so he can finally be put up for adoption. So far, he's learned how to: Sit, Down, Stay, Leave it, Watch Me, Come (recall), and Touch (hand). 

Mayo has separation anxiety and would do best in a home where he has a companion with him. This boy came from a traumatic situation and does not like when his humans leave him. He does not do well in a crate or kennel. We strongly recommend that Mayo has a home with a secure fence for him to run and play in. Although he has separation anxiety, he can entertain himself with chew toys. His favorite toys are his blue Jolly Ball, and squeaky tennis balls. 

Mayo has been working on positive reinforcement training and will need to go with an adopter who would like to continue his training! He is such a wonderful dog who needs a little guidance. Mayo has been on medications for his anxiety while here at the shelter, and it has done wonders for him. He is very low energy when her properly medicated and outside of the kennel. He does great in the car, and is potty trained. He has so much anxious energy when off them and cannot focus. Mayo will need an adopter who will be willing to work with him, and continue his medications.

Mayo has been with us since early April, and he is finally ready to find his furever home! He is neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccinations, and heartworm negative. Mayo would do best in a home without cats and small children. If you have another dog, a meet and greet is required.

Russell

Meet Russell!

Russell is a very sweet 9 month 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. 

Russell is a very active guy- if you're looking for a running buddy, this is your boy! He likes to run in the play yard as fast as he can at first, and he LOVES to play fetch with tennis balls! 

He hasn't had a whole lot of training, so our staff is teaching him some leash and obedience skills. 

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

Ollie

Screen Shot 2022-05-25 at 10.27.39 AM.png

Meet Ollie!
 

Ollie came to us last summer from Louisiana, and was adopted out to a loving home, but due to his hickory allergy, they wanted to give him a chance at a home where he does not need to be heavily medicated all the time.
 

Ollie is the best boy, but he has a SEVERE allergy to hickory and hickory trees. Ollie was on a regimen of allergy medication, but we think if he is adopted into an home where he will not be around hickory, he will not need to be on the medication.
 

Ollie previously lived- and was best buddies- with a cat. He is around 8 years old, and is a shepherd mix.
 

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

Sterling- Coming Soon

IMG_1489.jpg

Meet Sterling!

Sterling came in with his brother, Opie. They are a year old. They had a lot of playful energy with each other, and the owner also had another much older dog that did not like these young whippersnappers making such a ruckus. The three would end up fighting and the owner couldn't keep them separated in the home, so they were surrendered to us.

At first they were scared and didn't want to let us near them, but now they are warming up to us and showing that they are friendly once you get to know them. They are Rat Terrier/Border Collie mixes, and they have that Terrier "Stranger-Danger" attitude with people at first.

Sterling definitely has warmed up faster than his brother Opie. Although they came in together, we don't think they need to be adopted together. They walk well on a leash and were very well taken care of by their owner. 

They will be neutered, microchipped, up to date on all shots including Rabies, and Heartworm checked when adopted.

Opie- Coming Soon

Meet Opie!

Opie came in with his brother, Sterling. They are a year old. They had a lot of playful energy with each other, and the owner also had another much older dog that did not like these young whippersnappers making such a ruckus. The three would end up fighting and the owner couldn't keep them separated in the home, so they were surrendered to us.

At first they were scared and didn't want to let us near them, but now they are warming up to us and showing that they are friendly once you get to know them. They are Rat Terrier/Border Collie mixes, and they have that Terrier "Stranger-Danger" attitude with people at first.

Opie is taking a bit longer to really trust us here, and may take a bit more time to get to know him before adopting. Although they came in together, we don't think they need to be adopted together. They walk well on a leash and were very well taken care of by their owner. 

They will be neutered, microchipped, up to date on all shots including Rabies, and Heartworm checked when adopted.
