Buenos Dias Chica!

Rescue is not limited to the United States and we at GBGRR are proud to partner with SAMM (Save a Mexican Mutt), a dog rescue and adoption organization in San Miguel de Allende in Mexico.

In September, 2008, we received a call from SAMM that they had a young female and asked if we could take her into our program. Transport from Mexico to Houston was arranged and the young blond beauty soon found herself the newest GBGRR intake. She was fostered by Margaret and Bruce who quickly realized that she didn't understand English! Fostermom Margaret could only get the pups' attention by calling her "Chica". Fast forward to present day: "Chica" is now known as Emma. She has graduated from obedience training and has passed her Canine Good Citizen test. A permanent addition to Margaret and Bruce's home, Emma lives with two other Goldens (both are GBGRR alum) and two cats. She's a joy to be around and is often seen at GBGRR Meet and Greet Adoption Days.

Bruce and Margaret have fostered 14 dogs, 11 of them Heartworm positive and have volunteered with GBGRR for almost 4 years. The both currently volunteer on the adoption team.
