Meet Grover!

Grover was in a pet shop for over 6 months, and for the following 6 months had been shuffled between 3 or more different homes before he came into rescue. His foster mom says that Grover is the epitamy of a 2 year old human. He needs to be in a home with other animals and a stay at home family. She also says he is very social and loves to play but doesn't do well crated unless he can see you. When left unattended he gets into the trash, or anything else he can get into. He is very vocal - he likes to bark play or bark when crated. Today she found him sleeping on the pillow with her step-father in his hospital bed. Grover likes to go visit him - not all her Griffs do. Grover is very gentle, and adores being petted and loved. He is very well mannered in bed. He just appreciates it so much.

Grover is very smart and learns quickly. He needs a kind and patient home. He is a very sweet guy who was passed around and deserves a really good forever home for a change. He is now up to date on shots and has been neutered.

Grover is located in Sacramento, California.

If you would like more information, contact Margie Simon . If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.

Grover has been Adopted!

A note from Grover's new mom:

Just a note to let you know we have the 3 greatest dogs, they all slept all the way home, went potty (even in the rain) whenever we stopped every two hours, good thing we brought a couple big towels! Grover has met the cats and it went so well they just looked, sniffed and went their own ways. He is checking out all the toys and has found a chew that he is very fond of.

Gotta go catch up on my laundry, but wanted to let you know that the six weeks Grover spent with you turned him into the perfect Griff. He even had Nikki playing chase with him in the hotel, which was a riot to watch, but they got a little noisy so we had to calm them down, but now that they are home they can play all they want.

Thanks again for picking us to be Grover's new Mom & Dad.
I'll keep in touch.
Fondly, Carol

PS - We are working on a new name for Grover. Since he was such a little fighter for his first year and also likes to nip at Samson's ears we are thinking on changing his name to Tyson! Cute?! Every time I called "Grover" I feel like I'm GROWLING at him. Boy does he love our morning walks and does really well on the leash, he wants to lead our little pack, but Nikki and Sammy don't seem to mind. You'd think he knew where he was going the way he leads. He is learning to wait at the corners so we all cross together and has met several neighbor dogs on their morning walks. We are so happy to have him in our family, and he acts like he has always been with us. What a Happy Boy!
Thanks for everything.
