About Sadie

Hi there! I’m Sadie, a four-year old female Golden Retriever weighing about 55 lbs.  I was surrendered to GRRACE by a commercial breeder that no longer wanted me to produce puppies. When I came to GRRACE, I was extremely fearful of people, didn't know how to live in a home and didn’t know what treats or toys were or how to play. However, with the help of my foster family, I have come a long way. I am still a bit anxious and coming out of my shell but I am getting more confident every day. I’ve learned to love dog treats and am a chow hound. I love other dogs and being around them has really helped with my confidence and socialization and just learning how to be a dog.

I love food and will eat from your hand but prefer some distance to eat in peace. I love to run around outside and roll in the grass (and mud), and will require a physically fenced yard to do so. I am crate trained and the crate is my safe space.  I will go to my crate when meeting new people, encountering fast movements, or loud noises. I sleep through the night quietly, but will occasionally bark if another dog isn’t around. The past few weeks I’ve done so well that I’ve started to sleep outside of my crate.

My foster mom says I am a very sweet and beautiful girl, but I will need a lot of reassurance and patience from my forever family early on. I went from not being able to be approached to wanting pets and happily wagging my tail. Cat friends are OK, but small children won’t be a good match for me. I also should be in a quieter home, not a super active family or people that want to take me everywhere. I am still fearful of car rides and being approached with the leash to go to the car. These are things I still need help with, but I am certain that with the right loving home, I can keep getting braver and more confident each day. My foster family is happy to answer any questions you might have about me.

To be considered for Sadie you MUST have the following:

--A structural fence where she can run and play and feel secure while outside.

--Another outgoing, playful dog that can help her build her confidence and socialization skills.

--Patience, to give her the time and support she will need to reach her full potential.

Meet Evie!  Evie is a 6 year old pretty, pretty princess! She weighs around 70 pounds and is quite dainty in her actions.  She was surrendered to GRRACE by a breeder, who did not need her any longer.  She has a very relaxed temperament, and enjoys being with her people.  She loves having a person to cling to, currently her favorite is our 10 year old son.  Evie can be a little timid at first (especially around men), but warms up to them.  She can be startled by sudden movements, but recovers quickly.  She is great with other calm/gentle dogs, and loves to explore yards & socialize.  She enjoys rolling in the grass (and mud 😉).  She will need a fenced yard, as she does not love the leash, so walks can be tough (however if accompanied by another dog to show the way, she often does fine).  She is potty trained, but doesn’t always signal she needs to go out, so just some consistency with future plans and she should do great!! She does occasionally give a quick bark to unknown noises, but is generally very quiet.  She rides well in the car.  Often so quiet we forgot briefly she’s there! Food wise Evie tends to be more of a grazer, eating when she feels like it.  And she’s shown no signs of food aggression. Appearance wise, she has a soft, shorter coat on her back, and longer fur on her chest and belly (thus where her name came from…see Eevee the Pokemon😊).  She is a wonderful example of a Golden, with a kind demeanor, and is the gentlest of dogs.  If you have been thinking of adopting, Evie could be the one for you!  We have loved our time with her and are excited for her to find her forever home!
