GRR Number: 23-072

Type of Surrender: Owner Turn In

Status: Adopted

Age: 9

With much excitement, we announce the adoption of Jax!   The transformation in this “young” man has been nothing short of miraculous over the four months that he has been with us as a GRR rescue pup. Upon intake in July we truly felt that he would be on hospice care to make his last days with us a comfortable ones but he proved us wrong. Jax is a true example of what shelter, nourishment, health care, and most importantly, love, can do for a pup. Look at his huge smile!!!


Big J is a Permanent Foster because of a cancerous growth.   With heart medications and a loving foster family, Big J began making progress and enjoying life.  Unfortunately on September 22, the vet found a nodule on his testical that we believes is cancerous.  Due to Big J’s heart condition, he can’t go under anesthesia to remove it or to neuter him.  Hence GRR made Big J a permanent foster and he will receive palliative care.  While this is not the outcome we hoped for, Big J will live his life surrounded by a loving foster family and he will enjoy every moment.
