Meet Joe

Check out sweet Joe, who arrived at GDU on June 26th! He has spent the last few months in a shelter and we thought it was a high time he was sprung and living in luxury.

This sweet pug mix is around 7, up to date on vaccines, Neutered, and even microchipped. He is good with everyone and rides well in the car. He knows some basic commands, and is working on a few more. He loves to be in your lap, and sleeps peacefully in his own bed, beside yours.

More to come as his foster family gets to know him a little better. Pugs need to be indoor dogs, as they do not really tolerate the heat. If you can see his listing and are interested in adoption, please complete an adoption application, located under the 'forms' tab at

*/*/* PLEASE NOTE: The first communication you will receive after completing an application will be via email. Please keep an eye on your inbox AND spam folders, just in case. */*/*

We are happy to consider applicants from out of state. However, if the applicant is approved, they must be willing to come to our location in Troy, VA, for a meet and greet. If all parties agree that the pup and family are a good fit, they would take the pup home at that time.

For more information about our mission and for an application for adoption, please go to

GDU does ask a minimum adoption donation of $300.00. This is a minimum donation and does not cover all expenses, as we are funded solely by the angels and volunteers willing to donate time and finances. This minimum donation includes DAPP, rabies if age appropriate,, heartworm test and preventative, if age appropriate, and flea and tick treatment, as well as neutering or spaying if the animal is medically sound to undergo surgery. This minimum donation does not even begin to cover the actual expenses each animal has while in rescue, but does go directly towards vet care for our rescue animals. In an attempt to avoid tummy upset from a sudden change of food, the foster family may include a small, transitional bag of the food the dog/puppy has been eating. And if the dog/puppy has grown attached to a special item (like a toy or blanket), they may send that along, as well.
