Meet Max!

Meet Max!

Max is a smart 3-4 year old male liver roan GSP.  Max is very athletic and, while at 4, will need a good amount of exercise.  Max will also need lots of training as he is intelligent and may not have received strong training in his first home.  He responds...

Macy still needs a home

Macy still needs a home

Macy came to California GSP Rescue last year after being rescued from a high kill shelter in Southern California. Her socializing skills were lacking and we had to be careful when she was off leash with other dogs. For most of the year, she has been a regular in Saturday...

Tucker An Amazing GSP Mix Is Adopted!

Tucker An Amazing GSP Mix Is Adopted!

Like so many of the dogs surrendered to the Rescue, Tucker was a pretty normal GSP Mix  who needed a family that understood him, and the breed, a little better. Integrating a dog into your home takes time, patience, and often an understanding that a dog needs and wants someone to be his leader. This...

Fosters! We Need You!

Fosters! We Need You!

We need folks that can lead a few dogs to their future. We have specific dogs that need a leader that can guide them and commit to them despite their minor flaws…after all don’t we all have our flaws? Not every dog in our care can live within a pack of dogs without a guide.  A...

Update On Former GSP Rescue Dog, Willow

Update On Former GSP Rescue Dog, Willow

We could never imagine seeing Willow the way that she is today.  We had Willow for two years…two years!  So much longer than any of us hoped to ever have such a wonderful GSP.  Willow had a horrible experience in a shelter before she came to us with some aggressive dogs – resulting in dominant...
Chase Is Adopted!

Chase Is Adopted!

Joanne and Shawn had two rescued GSP’s that were the love of their life.  After losing their last boy in August, the house just wasn’t the same without a GSP in it. They applied with us to add an “older” GSP to their family, but needed a dog that would be able to live in...
Cookie is Adopted!

Cookie is Adopted!

Meredith, Chloe and Bella (and Princess) came out with the intent to adopt one of Cookie’s puppies.  However, with Meredith’s exercise regimen and her sufficient fencing, Cookie was also an option for her.   Meredith runs over 30 miles a week and , with a young female such a Cookie, this was something that may meet...
GSP Gordy is Safe!

GSP Gordy is Safe!

Dogs at shelters are often stressed and unpredictable. Take Gordy for example. The shelter was strange and unfamiliar. With dogs barking, he didn’t know what to expect and often growled at the animal control officers outside his cage. It isn’t unusual for dogs at the shelter to exhibit this behavior and, depending on the shelter,...
Charlotte and Clyde are Adopted!

Charlotte and Clyde are Adopted!

Charlotte and Clyde are adopted – together!  We were so hoping to keep this pair of GSPs together, and John and Anna came along at just the right time!  They were looking for two dogs and a bonded pair was just perfect for them – which turned out to be just perfect for Charlotte and...
