jackson14027 1This sweet boy is Jackson.  He came to G.R.I.N. from a shelter who picked him us as a stray and he was not claimed.  We think he is around 6-8 years old and very loveable!  He will make a great addition to a new forever home.  You can read about this golden and all of our goldens who are waiting on their forever homes on our Available Goldens pages.  If you can't adopt or foster a golden with G.R.I.N., but would like to help one (or more) of our rescued goldens, you can help us by becoming a sponsor of one or more of these rescued golden beauties!  As you look through our pages of "Available Goldens", you will see that many are sponsored but these goldens still have NO ONE to sponsor them and we need your help:    Austin,  Belle, Jackson and Palmer   We are asking for your help!  Our goal is to have all of our goldens sponsored with one or more sponsors.  A "Golden Sponsorship" is easy and a great way to help some very deserving goldens.  Here's how to become a sponsor.

We are happy to report Isaac is back in his foster home, recuperating from his first ACL surgery. Unfortunately, Isaac's knee was very severely damaged and needed to be operated on by performing a corrective osteotomy. This surgery changes the shape of the tibia (larger bone directly below the knee) and the purpose is to stabilize the knee joint.  Isaac's surgery went very well and the surgeon is optimistic about his recovery.  Once this knee heals adequately Isaac will undergo surgery on the other knee.  Isaac has to be assisted with a lift while he heals however resident dog Bella helps out by bringing him toys and bones.
Update as of 5/21/14
Isaac1Isaac continues to recover from his initial ACL repair surgery.  Much to his dismay he has to wear a cone to keep him from licking the surgical site.  He is scheduled for a follow up appointment with the specialist in a couple of weeks.  If all is well he will be scheduled for surgery on the second knee.  He is a good natured boy and gets along well with his foster siblings Bella and Buddy.  Thank you for your continued support and well wishes. 
Update: 8/7/14
Isaac had his second surgery last week and we are very pleased to report he is doing well and is back with his foster family!  The specialist who performed the surgery stated this was a much easier surgery than the first one.  Foster mom indicates he is already weight bearing and walking fairly well.  Isaac will return to the specialist for a follow up in a couple of weeks for suture removal.  Thanks for your ongoing support of this pup!

Fun Photo of the Week

Beachler Fergie10 web


Ever wonder what they see?

This fun photo was sent in by Fergie Beachler's mom, Lisa.  Fergie was in front of her mirror one day and was facinated by the reflection of herself and Lisa was able to snap a photo.  Fergie was one of the G.R.I.N. puppies adopted out this past summer! 

If you have a fun photo of your golden that you would like to share, please send it to print and note that it is a Fun Photo!
