Meet Our Boy Biscuit
Biscuit is looking for that special family of his very own.

 

Biscuit McCoy 3241

Biscuit McCoy - 3241

Biscuit is:   Age: 10 years   Gender: male   Breed: golden retriever mix   Weight: 75 lbs.   Status: available

Our gentle senior Biscuit, with his smiling face and one floppy ear, has learned that he has an ear for music, thanks to his foster Mom who gives harp instructions. Biscuit happily greets the students as they arrive, receives his love pats and then retreats to the music room to listen.

Biscuit has good social skills with other dogs and shows no anxiety to thunderstorms. He is a Velcro boy who loves attention but will patiently rest nearby and wait for his cuddle time. Biscuit came to GRRMF when his owner, who nurtured him from a pup, had to be transferred to a medical facility. He was lovingly raised with good house manners and social skills that you will see through his charming personality.

Although Biscuit takes Rimadyl for his knee arthritis, it does not slow him down. He enjoys a good game of catch and taking long walks so he can play "Deputy Dawg" with his nose sniffing happily over the ground. Biscuit will greet you at the door with his huge smile and happy "talking". He is saying he is so happy to see you and ready to capture your heart. Are you ready to find a place in your heart for sweet Biscuit?

Meet Fergie Josie
Fergie would love to settle in with a family of her very own.

Fergie Josie - 3227

Fergie is:   Age: 6 years   Gender: female   Breed: golden retriever mix   Weight: 45 lbs.   Status: available

A day in the life of Fergie.

Talk about a dogís life Ė Fergie is now headed for a wonderful life after being found at a shelter and rescued by GRRMF. Fergie starts her day when her foster dad rises and she stretches from her big foam bed. She spends part of the day resting on the couch watching TV with her foster family until itís time for a walk or ride in the car. These are Fergieís two top fun things next to eating and snuggling with her humans!

Fergie does have some challenges as she struggles with trusting other dogs and reacts to them on walks and in her space. She is getting help to work through these fears through the support of positive reinforcement training and her foster home care. She is cautious when going outside and seems to notice when anything has changed and approaches it carefully. But once comfortable in the backyard, she will chase squirrels and lizards, but hasnít caught one yet! Fergie loves car trips and rides very well in the car; she will sit and watch everything going on. But itís so exhausting that when she comes home Ė itís time for a rest! Fergie has many toys but prefers the fabric ones. Her foster family have a pool but Fergie hasnít tested the waters yet.

Fergie has very good manners and doesn't bark, chew furniture or counter surf. There isn't any running or going wild through the house either. She knows a few commands and is housebroken. After a day of taking care of her humans and making sure she is always available for petting, its dinner time and bed.

As Fergie drifts off to sleep on her comfy bed she dreams of a day when she can wake with her new forever family and spend the day with them, snuggling on the couch watching TV, driving around town, going for walks and in general leading a dogís life! Are you the person who has an open heart to love Fergie and offer her a wonderful life ahead?

GRRMF Therapy Dogs In Action
James and The Giant Library

This video was filmed by GRRMF alumnus James, one of Professor Fitzgerald's therapy goldens.
James used a GoPro to show you his point of view as he visited everyone at

The Dolly & Homer Hand Law Library
Stetson University College of Law
Gulfport, Florida

The librarians at Stetson University College of Law asked Professor Fitzgerald if James (and Dora) would be willing to star in a short film that they wanted to submit to AALL's (American Association of Law Libraries) annual "Day in the Life" photo and video contest.

Well, not only did everyone have a good time, James' video WON FIRST PLACE! Not bad for a shelter boy who came into rescue Heartworm positive just 3 short years ago.

James sends his best regards to everyone in the entire GRRMF organization. He knows full well that without your help, he wouldn't be the TDI registered *STAR* that he is today!

GRRMF thanks James, Dora, Professor Peter Fitzgerald and his wife Susan for sharing their adventures with us.
We also send a special thank you to the Fitzgeralds for opening their home and hearts to goldens in need.
