TVGRR Furry Ambassadors
We want to introduce to our team of TVGRR Furry Ambassadors. While we don’t take our adoptable dogs to events and Meet-a-Thons as that is to stressful for them; we do bring one or more of our Furry Ambassadors. They love to go and love to meet everyone young to old. Always ready for your pets and hugs not to mention those belly rubs. All of them are very good with children so you don’t have to worry. As you can see they all have their own story and each one is unique.
UPDATE: Tucker crossed the Rainbow Bridge 7/8/2020 due to cancer. His shoes can never be filled for all that he was to so many humans and fur ones alike and to TVGRR. You will be forever missed and loved.
TVGRR rescued Tucker from a shelter in 2014. He is now 9 yrs. old. Tucker is the editor of TVGRR’s monthly newsletter. He absolutely adores all the love and attention you will give him. Always has a paw or two to give you to be sure you don’t forget he is there.
Dakota (aka The Diva)
This girl came from a shelter in North Carolina in 2017 at the age of 6. Dakota is a TVGRR permanent foster due to unique health issues. She adores all people and loves to get all the attention she can receive which is why she goes to most all of TVGRR Events. If you want to read more about her go here:
An owner surrender, she came to TVGRR in December of 2014 at the age of 4. She had been hit by an ATV and sustained permanent back injuries. With the use of her wheels she is one active girl who likes to go swimming, chase deer, and ‘wheel’ after her brother. She and her brother (Tucker J) are amazing dogs who show the world that having wheels is just as fun as 4 legs.
In February 2011, Tucker was given to TVGRR when he was 5 yrs. old. Tucker has been shot in the back thus loss the use of his back legs. Like his fur sister, Amia Grace, he is one active boy who is ball crazy. The fur ones are amazing to watch and proof they can live a great life enjoying everything life offers.
UPDATE: Quincy crossed the Rainbow Bridge on 5/8/2020 due to cancer. We all will sorely miss that sweet boy and his wonderful smile.
TVGRR got Quincy, a golden lab mix, from a shelter January 2018. He had been passed over because he was over 10 years old. What we saw was a gentle soul who needed an opportunity to live out his days with love. His dad, as do we, adores this little boy and brings him often to our events. He loves all the attention everyone gives to him by both the young and old.
All we can add is… Seniors Rock!
Believe it or not, a cat rescue contacted us about Kara in May 2019. She was found in a barn with limited food and water along with her brother. He was adopted but Kara is what we call a Foster Failure; meaning that the foster just couldn’t let her go. Very good for us because she is one of the sweetest girls ever. Kara is a Golden Retriever/Great Pyrenees and now about 3 yrs old. She is ever so patient with everyone who comes to our events. She lets the children inspect ears and tails with extreme grace and a smile on her face.
My story is a bit different. A rescue contact TVGRR and they took me in when I was about 2 yrs. old, March 2018. I was a lot smaller when I came and when I was adopted. Boy did I surprise everyone cause I almost didn’t stop growing. They think besides Golden Retriever I am most likely part Great Pyrenees or Anatolian Shepherd. Who knows I may be all three and more. But I am a total love bug. If you see me at a Meet-a-Thon you are going to be surprised at how tall I am when I stand up; but you are going to love petting me and oh yes I love those belly rubs. Kids love me even if I am a bit taller than some.
