Abel

Meet everyone's favorite hippo- Abel!

 

Abel joined our shelter family back in February emaciated and with heartworm disease. It was clear to anyone who met him that he had not lived an easy life. Slowly but surely, we helped him pack on the pounds. One thing that he never needed help in was love. Even with his rough past, Abel’s heart is massive with enough love to make anyone’s life shine. He has completed his heartworm treatment. Abel is currently on fluoxetine- anti-anxiety medication- that we strongly encourage adopters to keep him on for the rest of his life. Abel has some anxiety, and this medication has done wonders to help him regulate his emotions.

 

Abel is dog aggressive, and our team has been working on some positive reinforcement training to help him be able to see and hear dogs without having a reaction. Although he has come a long way, Abel will need to be the only animal in the home. Not to worry, Abel has so much love to give, you will never be bored!

 

This handsome boy is ready for a furever home of his own. He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. Due to his previous heartworm diagnosis, he will need to stay on monthly preventative for the rest of his life.

JuJu

Meet JuJu!

JuJu is a super sweet boy. He loves to cuddle and is very food motivated. He loves to be around people, and would do best in a home where he isn't left alone for long periods of time. JuJu does great in the car, and is an excellent karaoke buddy. He's not the most playful guy with toys, but would just rather hang out with people and get all the lovin'. He is not dog or cat friendly at all, and needs to be the only pet in the home. He is kid friendly, but due to his size, we recommend kids over 5. 

This potato recently had surgery to fix an entropion (flipped eyelid), and is healing nicely. JuJu is neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and heartworm negative.

Duke

Meet Duke!

Duke came to GHHS back in 2021, and unfortunately his living situation did not work out. Originally from Arkansas- this goofball was unfortunately the victim of an extreme neglect situation. Due to his past of being a starving dog, he has some food aggression with other dogs, and needs to be the only pet in the home. He would also due best in a home with older children, so they do not try and take his food away. 

This guy is a total dork- made even more prominent by his massive tongue and lack of teeth (he's all gums!). He knows sit, lay down, and is rusty on a high five (but we're getting there!). He loves stick his fat head in tiny places, and has an uncanny ability for just magically knowing where toys are. Once he found a tiny green rubber toy underneath the racks 4 feet back and somehow got it out. He also somehow sticks his head into the toy pin. We have lost several stuffed animals due to this. He is a murderer, with no sympathy (Duke will need to have supervision while playing with stuffies, as he's know to eat them)

Duke loves to go for walks, car rides, and basically anything where he can hang out with his favorite people. He is a very strong dog (we estimate him to be a Great Dane / Boxer mix), and would do best with a harness. This boy has been through a lot and is deserving of finding a forever home.

Ready to give Duke a chance? He is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines. He will be heartworm tested prior to adoption.

Gunner - In Foster

Meet Gunner!

Gunner is a shy, nervous boy- he is around 8 months old (born 2/16/23), and is ready for a furever home! Gunner LOVES squeaky toys, and is very food motivated. This handsome fella will need to be in a home where there is someone home a majority of the time- he has some pretty severe separation anxiety, and has previously lived in an apartment setting (which wasn't ideal for him). He is pretty nervous around other dogs, so a meet and greet is required if you have another dog. We are unsure how he is with cats and children. 

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

Bane- Special Needs

Meet Bane!

Bane is a sweet boy who is almost 3 years old. He can be shy when meeting new people, but is very affectionate. He loves to go for car rides, and out of the stressful shelter environment, we guess that his true personality will shine!

When Bane was a pup, he was bitten severely on his head by his dad, which caused cranial damage. He has occasional seizures that are managed by anti-seizure medication. He will need to be on this medication for the rest of his life, as it does a great job of managing his seizures. He is a such a good boy taking his meds!

Bane is neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and heartworm

Vernors

Meet Vernors!

Vernors is a sweet little pup. He loves playing with toys, and for a pup, keeps a pretty clean kennel. He will make a great family pet!

Vernors was diagnosed with Papilloma Virus, which is common for young dogs. These are warts that are highly contagious to other dogs - they are species specific, and are not contagious to humans or cats. Dogs eventually gain some immunity to the virus, but at this time Vernors needs to be a single dog. 

He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. He is too young to heartworm test.

Meet Emiline!

Emiline is a sweet but skittish Australian Shepherd / Pittie mix, who is estimated to be 1.5 years old. Once she warms up to you she is a total sweetheart! She prefers the company of older humans and men more - If you have children, we recommend that they are above the age of 10 for Emiline’s comfort level. She is currently working on her leash skills.
