  Meet Gracie!

We are excited to introduce 6 yr. old - 16 lb. Gracie. This spunky little lady is currently busy entertaining her foster family in Burlington, IA while keeping a sharp eye out for her perfect forever family to come along. This one of a kind, spunky, full of life little girl will grab your heart in a New York minute, and loves keeping her people on their toes with a few mischievous and comical antics thrown in now and then for good measure.

Gracie is very social, loves walks, and handles well on lead. She would be happy as an only dog with an adult only active family who can be home with her most of the time to shower her with oodles of attention, as well as a home with other small active dogs who do not mind a bit of good natured doggy social awkwardness as she learns proper manners within a pack.

She loves playing fetch, and is an excellent treat catcher. She doesn't quite trust herself (or maybe she's hoping for more) so even when she catches it she still looks for it on the floor - hilarious! She often hears "Gracie" in a warning voice when she's a bit bratty (in the cutest way possible of course), but when she looks up at you with eyes of pure love and innocence, your heart will instantly turn to mush (we think she is quite aware of this - tee hee).

Gracie is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, heart worm negative, on monthly heart worm preventative, had a recent dental, and is micro chipped.

Gracie is being fostered in Burlington, IA.

We never place dogs in homes reliant on electric or invisible fencing to contain pets. Fencing of this type may or may not keep a dog in the yard, nor does this type of fencing protect pets from predators, free roaming dogs, or people who may enter the yard. Should there be a power outage, the fence would be rendered useless. If a pet were to panic and run through the barrier and take an electrical jolt from the fence, that pet would not be inclined to return home, and could be lost forever.

Please keep in mind that while we prefer to place dogs within reasonable driving distance of where they are being fostered, if someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable and small enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger, or the family must drive to where the dog is being fostered to adopt. We never ship our rescued Griffs or allow them to fly via the cargo hold.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Jan at nbgrtexas@yahoo.com.
