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...

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...
