Hello everyone! My name is Gracie and I am an 11-year-old, female, spayed German Shepherd mix. I am a perfect size – not too big or too small and weigh 45lbs. I was rescued on the street as a puppy and was very happy until I recently lost both my mommy and daddy. My human brother, his wife and their two young sons took me into their home, but some were allergic to me and I needed to be kept separated from the family. They were sad because they couldn’t keep me, but they want me to have a wonderful new life and home so they called Safe Place for Pets to help!! I’m in a wonderful foster home now and my foster mom says I am so sweet! She has been walking me and says I have very good leash manners and do not pull.

I am great with other dogs, kids, and cats. I am a wonderful house dog – I am house trained, don’t chew or bark, and am a very calm, loving and peaceful companion. I am also great in a car and just lie down in the backseat while we’re on the go – hopefully to the dog park or somewhere fun! Despite my age, I can keep up on long runs, and have even been known to catch a rabbit or two when given the opportunity! My favorite greeting is to run to my family and bury my face between their legs – this is my way of giving hugs to those I love!! Although happy to spend all day in my family’s company, I also enjoy spending time outside in the sunshine so I’d do best with a nice fenced yard.

I am looking for a forever home with a family with time to play with me, take me on walks and give me attention and affection. I am seeking the kind of unconditional love that I will be oh so happy to return!! If you are in need of a companion, a family friend who will always listen to your every word, please consider me and contact Safe Place for Pets at 719-359-0201 or email info@safeplacepets.org!! I will be waiting for you and can’t wait to give you one of my very special hugs!!
