Lambchop - Is our sweet, 15 year old blind and deaf poodle girl. She also has mammory tumors we are not able to have removed due to her age. She is in permanent foster care where she is spoiled and loved for the rest of her life.
Gerda is now named Trixie in her Foster home. She had both her eyes removed right before she came to GFA. She had to learn how to get around being blind. She is doing well in her Foster home. She will be loved and cared for in a permanent foster home until it's her time to cross the rainbow bridge.

Buttercup is a very sweet little poodle mix. We believe she is 10 to 12 years old. She came to us from a Baltimore shelter on September 22nd, 2018. Buttercup was taken to the shelter after somebody had found her shivering and hairless on their front porch. Her nails were longs and her feet and tail hairless, black and cold. It is thought she was used for breeding and dumped when she was no longer useful. Blood work showed she was very anemic, and had some infection going on in her fragile little body. She had about 3 weeks of good food, warmth and medicine, and she was ready to be spayed. We believe she has some endocrine issues keeping her fur from coming in. After being spayed she began to grow fur on all of her feet. Believing that she needs to have some good care, good food and continued exploring to help her get her coat back and become healthy, we have decided she will be a permanent foster and we are so happy her foster Mama, Marla, agreed to take her home and love her!
Gabe is our very sweet and smart 14 year old poodle. He had quite a severe bladder stone, that when biopsied, was found to be a calcium oxalate crystal. These crystals must be surgically removed and donot dissolve with diet. It had gotten quite large and did some damage to his bladder. He will remain in our care to ensure he is on the proper diet to prevent this from happening again, and to ensure that if it does he will get the medical attention he needs.
