Charlotte and Clyde - A Forever Home Together

Charlotte and Clyde – A Forever Home Together

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...

Bo Needs a Leader

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...

Sheriff is Safe!

Sheriff is Safe!

Unlike the shelter from where Spike was rescued, Sheriff was in a remote shelter that reached out to California GSP Rescue for assistance. Sheriff was found as a stray and had been diagnosed with demodectic mange that isn’t difficult to treat. However, arranging transportation from remote shelters can present a challenge. The shelters aren’t able...
Pumpkin and Spice are Safe!

Pumpkin and Spice are Safe!

When we first heard about Spice, we heard that she had been turned into a local high kill shelter by her owner that was “having problems”. One look at her photo, even though she looked emaciated and was a GSP Mix, we knew we could help find her a home. She reminded us of a...
Maggie is Adopted!

Maggie is Adopted!

Mike and Robin came out to meet Maggie, a nice gentle five year old female GSP that was turned into the shelter because of her owners’ move. We knew a little about her from her transporter and her first days at the rescue.  We knew that she was good with dogs and people alike and...
You Have To Meet Phoenix!

You Have To Meet Phoenix!

You have to meet Phoenix!  This is something the volunteers will often tell other volunteers when they are in the field.  Why you may ask?  Because Phoenix is amazing! Everyone should meet this dog…and most of us would be lucky to have a dog such as Phoenix in our home just once in our lifetime!  He...
In Memory of Buddy Rudy

In Memory of Buddy Rudy

It is with very heavy hearts that we tell you of the passing of Buddy Rudy. Though we will greatly miss his affection and attention, we try to concentrate on the “extra” year of chasing birds and hunting gophers that we were privileged to give him. Our goal for each dog at the rescue is...
Elvis is Safe!

Elvis is Safe!

Recently we learned of a GSP at a local shelter that was rescue only. When we inquired about why he was rescue only, and we were told it was because they thought he might be blind. Uncommon but not unheard of, California GSP Rescue has placed a few blind dogs. We asked the shelter if...
Meet Cookie!

Meet Cookie!

Cookie is an approximately 2.5 year old female German Shorthaired Pointer.  She is liver roan in color, and is a very active playful young female GSP. Cookie is a young GSP with a ton of energy, and will need an adopter that is willing to give her plenty of exercise and continued training, and also...
Reasons to choose (Two) GSPs!

Reasons to choose (Two) GSPs!

A little over two years ago, a bonded pair was relinquished to the California GSP Rescue – much like  Charlotte and Clyde recently were.  We realize very few people start out with the intention of adopting TWO at once, so we asked double-adopter Victoria to share her story in hopes it will spark a “maybe I...
Spike is Safe!

Spike is Safe!

From time to time we’ll inquire about a dog in a local shelter and we’ll get a response that states they (the shelter) think they can place the dog. Such was the case with Spike. After the initial inquiry, we received a reply from the shelter stating they thought they could find find him a...
Koa is Adopted!

Koa is Adopted!

Koa certainly has had some very special people in his life. First, was Josh and Brittany – fosters and adopters from the Rescue – who found him while out in the wilderness. He was so scared and timid it took HOURS to “catch” him and take him home. Next, the volunteers at the Rescue used...
Liam is Safe!

Liam is Safe!

Last month we received a few emails about an adult GSP picked up as a stray and taken to an LA shelter. We didn’t waste any time finding out more about this boy knowing adult GSPs don’t get a lot of attention at the shelters. Once we received word when he would be available, we...
