GRRR was contacted by GRACE, another Golden Retriever Rescue about 6 golden retrievers who needed to be moved from a breeder. GRACE was out of foster homes and unfortunately GRRR was not in any better position to take six golden retrievers in at Christmas with a moments notice. So we contacted GRRoM, a Golden Retriever Rescue in Michigan, to see if they had any room. Luckily for these dogs, GRRoM had 5 families that answered the plea for help and wanted to share their Christmas with a golden retriever in need. We were able to take the remaining golden retriever into the our rescue.
Meet five year old Harper who had her world turned upside down. When she arrived in our rescue, she ended up having surgery to remove an obstruction she got at the breeders. She has gone from living in a cage to living in a house that has noises she has never heard before. Some puppy mill surrenders take a good long time to come around, but Harper is doing very well. She loves the stuffed animals and carries her kitty outside with her and almost always remembers to bring it back in with her.
Harper has not really been interested in the other dogs in her foster home and mostly just wants human attention. When the foster mom is at work, she has a fence across the living room so her dogs and Harper are separated for now. So far, Harper has been "holding it" until foster mom gets home.
Harper’s ideal home is someone at home that maybe has more then two hands as the more pets the better in Harper’s opinion! We are still raising money to pay for Harper's emergency surgery. If you can help cover these unanticipated expenses, we would greatly appreciate it. Please donate via the button below and thank you! We'll list your name as her sponsor on this page.
