 Follow Gracie on her quest to find her forever family!


In 2014, Katie and Edgar started their quest to find a pet to adopt. After a few months of searching and visiting many dogs, they found Gracie. A little dog whose online profile said no dogs, no kids, no cats - lots of love and patience required. 

After a good first visit and honest conversations with Gracie's foster mom, Katie and Edgar decided to adopt little Gracie when she was 8 years young. By then she had spend a year in foster care.


The path was NOT easy. Gracie is not a dog for everyone. She still barks every single time someone is at the door, and if you come to our home she will bark at you until you say hi to her. 

Katie and Edgar live in Cleveland, OH with little Gracie, who is now 14 years old. Gracie's lived in St. Louis, Chicago, Indiana, Cleveland and got many postcards from Paris for a few months in 2017.
