Adopted Dogs ... Success Stories!

These are just a sampling of some of the more recent adoptions.

This beautiful cat is Lily. She was found in a locked house that was for sale with no food or water. Owners moved away and a Good Samaritan called realtor and took her to get spayed and vaccinated. She’s about a year old. She is doing amazingly well in her foster home. The once-shy kitty has turned into an outgoing girl who soaks up attention. She is a super snuggler who purrs up a storm and gives tiny kisses.

It seems that Lily would be happy with a nice kitty pal (if you have one), and she may do okay with a dog who is not intent on chasing her. She has adjusted to hearing and seeing the dogs in her foster home, but she has not interacted with them. Lily would likely be fine as your 'one and only', too. This petite and dainty girl deserves a loving home. Can that be you? Please fill out an adoption application if you are interested in adopting Lily. Lily's adoption fee is $75.


Annie is approximately 1 year old, 21 pounds, spayed and current on shots. We are unsure of her breeds. Annie was found by tourists traveling through Northern Arizona. She had porcupine quills in her face, and they brought her to Golden Bone. Annie has one small eye which she was born with. It sometimes gets goopy and needs to be cleaned. She is on an antibiotic eye cream to clear it up. Annie is very mellow and quiet. She is trained to potty outside on walks. Annie needs a quiet, mellow home. She likes to be near her person. We have not heard Annie bark at anything. She will melt into your arms. She has been living in foster with a cat. She loves playing with other dogs and toys, and has a lot of energy. Annie's adoption fee is $275. If you are interested in adopting Annie, please fill out our adoption form. A home visit is required.


Hot Shot is a 1 year old, 8 pound neutered Chihuahua/Dachshund mix. He is current on shots. Hot Shot is used to being around other dogs. He is using the doggy door for pottying. He is a runner, so needs a securely fenced yard and only walks on leash. No small children. Hot Shot comes and sits next to you when he wants to be petted. He can be a little shy at first and nippy if he is scared, so his person must be patient and gentle. He sleeps in his foster Mom's bed at night and hangs out on other dog beds during the day. He is really very sweet.

If you are interested in adopting Hot Shot, please fill out our adoption application. His adoption fee is $275.

Jessie - Adoptable Dogs Jessie

Jessie  ADOPTED!  

Mixed breed

I was found in a parking lot while looking for food and narrowly missed a truck that was coming my way. I am about 8 months (as of January) old and very playful and have a lot of energy. I am about 30 pounds so I am not going to be a large dog. I like riding in cars and usually fall asleep right away. I would do best in a home with a fenced yard as I would be unhappy being tied up and I wouldn't make a good apartment dog. I would also probably be better with older kids as sometimes I get too rambunctious! I would like to be in an active family who would take me for walks and maybe play frisbee with me. I would probably do best as an only dog or with a male dog. I am very curious about cats and want to get to know them but I want to play and they run away! I am spayed and all my shots are current.

Prema  ADOPTED!  

Prema has been with us a year and is ready at last to look for her forever home. She arrived absolutely terrified, barking incessantly at anyone even vaguely near her, collapsing into a quivering heap when approached. Several people wanted to adopt her but couldn't get past her extraordinary fear. After several months the only people she tolerated were GBRR director Nadia Callou and the owner of the kennel she has called her home for way too long. We resorted to a light dose of prosac which eased her along for 6 months as more people joined in the effort to rehabilitate this sweet and traumatized girl.

Since February, with the help of an amazing team of volunteers and the dedication of a local dog trainer, Prema has made great progress and we have slowly been weaning her off the prosac. She is not regressing! She greets her team members happily, comes when called by the people she knows and loves to run and play ball with her handlers. Today she learned to sit n command! She's started going on walks and has shown us she is ready for life in a home. A very special home where she can bond and be with someone who will love and help her build confidence that she has never known.

Prema is extraordinarily sensitive and needs a quiet, gentle, secure home with a fenced back yard for games of fetch and gleeful running. She doesn't require a lot of external stimulation and is happiest beside the human she trusts with some run and play time outside.

If you have a place in your heart and your home for a loving, devoted, very sensitive and timid girl, Prema will make a loyal, gentle companion. She is house trained, kennel trained, spayed, current on shots. She is indifferent with other dogs friendly, submissive and detached. She showed very little interest when introduced to a cat. Mostly she wants to be with and attend to her human.

Caribou Caribou

Caribou  ADOPTED!  

Meet Caribou, a seven year old chihuahua mix. Her foster family had been caring this cutie for an ill owner and unfortunately the owner is unable to take Caribou back due to the owner's health. So now Caribou is looking for a new home.

She loves riding in the car and has lots of playful energy. She can run very fast but is not hyper or nervous. She was socialized around horses and alpacas this last year. Caribou is a loving, social girl who will happily adapt to any situation as long as she feels safe and cared for.

This cute dog is intelligent, alert, and interested. She loves attention and likes to be a part of activities but will sleep by herself and can be comfortably crated when needed. She has also been taught many tricks! Caribou has very short, no shed hair and loves to dress up in doggie clothes. She also loves food and requires a strict, healthy diet to keep her from getting too fat. She is house broken and has excellent house manners.

Caribou is spayed and up to date on vaccines. Please visit our website and fill out an adoption application if you are interested in this cute dog!

Kahleesi  ADOPTED!  

Kahleesi thinks she is a Queensland Heeler. It's not a predominant breed in her appearance but she has so many heeler traits that we think it’s strong in her genetics. She's a beautiful amber red color with gorgeous gold eyes. Her body is sleek and athletic at about 50 lbs. We think she is a heeler-Vizsla-shepherd mix. She is about one year old as of mid-December.

Kahleesi is loyal and dedicated to her people. She can be apprehensive when approached by strangers. She warms up very quickly when she's established trust and turns into a playful, goofy pup. At home she is loyal, affectionate, happy, playful, and well-mannered for an active young dog. She is house trained, spayed, and current on shots.

She gets along well with most dogs when she's introduced gently and takes a submissive role with the other dogs in her foster home, but she can be dog-selective.

She learns very quickly, wants to please, and loves to run. More than anything she loves to swim.

Kahleesi would love an adult home with an active lifestyle and a securely fenced yard. Like most dogs, she doesn't like being left alone and would like at least one other dog companion or a person who can be with her most of the time. She would benefit from formal training and a home where she can be a loyal, dedicated best friend and companion. She wants clear direction and when she knows what is expected of her, she will do her very best to comply.

Committed foster home or forever home needed! Please fill out a foster or adoption application if interested!

Pongo is a one year old Jack Russell/Rat Terrier mix male. This playful little guy is super outgoing and loves other dogs. Pongo is very active and loves to play. He can be a little "mouthy" when he is playing (and that is getting better with work) but otherwise is not nippy or mean. He is afraid of young children (he wants to hide from them) but other than that he seems to love everyone he meets.

Pongo is fully housebroken and crate trained. He doesn't like to sleep in a crate at night though, he wants to sleep with his people in bed. He has pretty good house manners but will sneak food if he can reach it. He loves antlers and Nylabones to chew on and loves to play tug-a-war. He also walks great on a leash and loves walks. He loves other dogs who will play with him. He is very smart and knows his name.

When Pongo was first rescued he was a terrified little guy who was so afraid that he would snap and growl. Those days have passed and now he greets every adult he meets with kisses and a wagging tail. He loves to sit on any available lap and be held like a baby. The only time he gets mouthy is if you rough house with him but if you stop the game and tell him "no" than he will stop. He is definitely an indoor dog who doesn't want to be left outside...he will follow you around the house all day. He is currently living with a large group of dogs of various sizes but would be happiest living in a home with 1-2 other dogs where he can get lots of attention.

Honey Bee is a 2 1/2 to 3 year old dachshund mix. She loves other dogs and is fine with cats. Honey Bee is shy but warms up quickly. She seems to prefer woman to men and is good with gentle children over the age of 12. She will do best in a quiet home with at least one other friendly small dog to keep her company. She would not enjoy being an only dog...she is a social little bee! Honey Bee is housebroken and walks on a harness. She loves to cuddle and will sit in your lap for hours. She loves to sleep with you at night and will follow you around the house. She is very gentle when taking treats and is quiet and not yappy. She loves her canned food and is on a diet to help her gain weight.


Katness  ADOPTED!  

Katness- 4-5 month old boxer mix pup! This good natured girl just wants to play! She is very skinny and needs to eat. We've given her DHLP and dewormed after thorough checkup. Other than being emaciated she appears normal and healthy. She has a very sweet disposition. Because she is still a puppy she will need lots of postive reenforcement training and is still working on housebreaking.


Rascal  ADOPTED!  

Rascal is a sweet natured easy going 18 month old poodle mix boy who weighs about 25 pounds. His legs are long in proportion to his body and he is still getting used to them. He loves people and other dogs and just wants to play with them. He loves to play fetch, to go for walks and playing with toys. He is not a big barker but likes to bark at dogs on Animal Planet. He loves to climb onto the back of the recliner and look out the windows at the world. He also likes to squeeze onto the back of the dining chair while I eat and loves to snuggle in bed. He enjoys riding in the car and will run into the garage to get into the car. He is not a picky eater but is sensitive to food changes. He is doggie door trained. He is a good boy and needs a home with the ability to understand a young happy boy.


Hank  ADOPTED!  

Hank is 12 years old. He's a fine, active, senior gentleman Catahoula/Cattle Dog mix. His mom took wonderful care of him and loves him deeply but she became very ill and nearly died. She has had a long road to recovery and now cannot live with the pathogens in a home with animals. She lost her career, her home, and nearly her life and has not seen her beloved boy for a year. He has been in a home-boarding-foster since his mom was taken to the hospital in Wyoming where Hank still lives. He has been cared for well but his time there is up. Hank loves to be around women and is a mamas boy by nature. We have a pilot willing to transport Hank to his loving forever home ANYWHERE in the U.S.

This sweet boy loves to be around his people and will never go far from the person he's bonded too. He wants to be at ready by his owner's side. He loves walks and is wonderful both on and off leash. He also loves water and loves to swim. Hank is used to acreage and loves outdoor time as well as indoor home time with his person.

Hank is very protective of his people but not in an aggressive way. He is steadfast and calm and barks only when warranted. Hank has had extensive training. He is obedient, eager to please and learns new commands easily, even in his senior years. When he bonds with you, he will do anything that you ask with integrity and love.

Hank is very gentle but can be a bit nervous around very young children.He would do best in an adult home or a home with older kids or children who are very dog savvy. he is still an active senior and enjoys hikes and walks. He would love a spacious yard. But most importantly, Hank needs someone who will love him and cherish his loyal companionship.

Rosie Kayla is a 5 month old yorkie-poodle mix who is very active and loves to play. Rosie Kayla loves the company of other dogs and needs a home with other playful dogs to keep her busy and happy. She should also easily adjust to dog savvy cats.
