Luna Needs A New Foster Home (She Was Adopted Two Years Ago But Was Returned to GDR)
Luna, with her sticking up ears, tail
dipped in white paint and sweet little face is thirteen pounds of wiggly
fun! Affectionate, friendly, loves kids, about 5 years old, she would be
perfect for anyone. She knows basic commands and listens well. Luna LOVES
her treats! She warms to people quickly with treats in their hand. She is
the type of dog that is ready for anything. The Grateful Dogs Rescue
volunteer foster family takes her with them in the car and she rides well.
Luna loves to walk and has her own opinion about which way to go. It is so
funny! She very quickly learned the way home and when she has had enough,
she heads for home. Luna has a sweet and gentle nature. She loves to be
near her foster family and just relax. She is very low maintenance. One of
the most endearing things about her is that she likes to sleep under the
covers. She will burrow in and snuggle up! She also sleeps as long as her
foster family does! (a real bonus on weekends!!!) She finds a
sunny spot and lifts her closed eyes to the sun and you know all is right
in her world. When she is excited she leaps like a gazelle! It is too cute.
On days her foster family needs to be out of the house for an extended
period, Luna has been trained to use a pee pad. Otherwise, she was easy to
train to go in one spot in the yard with "pee drops". We have fallen in
love with her in just a very short time. If her foster family did not have
to travel extensively for work, she would be a part of their family. She is
a keeper!! Foster Luna (203 KB)

Grateful Dogs Rescue needs a San Francisco bay area foster home for Fefe.
This is what the
volunteer evaluator had to say "I took Fefe out today and really
enjoyed her. She warmed up to me in kennel but was a bit skittish. Fefe
appreciated the company, took treats and was affectionate. She balked
a bit going out and was spooked by
sights and sounds but wasn't hard to move along. Fefe ran around in the park, played fetch like a
pro and had lots of fun. She must be some degree of Jack Russel Terrier. As
best as I can recall, she peed and pooped outside. I like

Can You Help GDR Rescue Fiona
Fiona is a 3-4 year old female Beagle mix who weighs about twenty pounds.
Update: Cutie-pie Fiona has a typical beagle personality – she loves to sniff and explore! It can take her a bit to warm up, but once she does, she's very affectionate and sweet. With her lovely black and brown coat she looks a bit like a mini Rottie. Fiona has an ear infection, which is being treated with medication and should clear up in a couple of weeks. Her right ear has some signs of chronic infection. She may have allergies that are contributing to her ear infections, so she may need to have regular vet check-ups to manage the situation. A family with children might be fine for Fiona -- come meet her and see if it is a good fit.

Fedora was easy to leash up, she walked fine outside and was just the tiniest bit skittish. Fedora peed and pooped outside, ran alongside me and explored while in the park.
