Matilda is Adopted!

Matilda is Adopted!

Repeat adopters, Brad and Sebrina, recently lost their very special GSP Zoey way too early to cancer.  Zoey was sweet, curious, and a little crazy, and Brad and Sebrina weren’t planning on getting another dog any time soon – but then Brad saw Matilda on our website.  Within a week, they had a new sister for...
Meet Peaches!

Meet Peaches!

Peaches is a 9 month old white with liver petite female German Shorthaired Pointer.  She was given the name Peaches by our volunteer that transported her to us because he said “she is as sweet as a Georgia Peach”. Peaches came into the rescue with kennel cough and has since recovered and is now putting...

Gracie is Adopted!

Gracie is Adopted!

Skye and Gary were considering contacting us to adopt a companion for their male GSP.  Sadly out of the blue, he became sick, and was diagnosed with cancer and passed away shortly after.  They rescued their GSP, after he was abandoned in the woods, loved him and made him a treasured member of their family. ...
Meet Olive!

Meet Olive!

Olive is a very petite 7-8 year old liver female German Shorthaired Pointer that is just as sweet as can be. This beautiful girl was picked up as a stray, and taken to a local shelter where she waited for her owners to claim her, but they never came.  Once her hold was up, we...
Brownie is Adopted!

Brownie is Adopted!

Although 7 isn’t very old in GSP years, it is older than most adopters are looking for when they apply. Jeff,  however, was more interested in a personality fit than an age, and Brownie seemed perfect for him. As a friend of one of our volunteers, he had also seen just how active any aged...
Cappy Is Quite Comfortable

Cappy Is Quite Comfortable

We recently received an update on Cappy, and it appears he has made himself right at home. “Hard to believe that it has been just over 1 month since Cappy came to live with us!  He believes in the highest level of comfort.  He is either curled up in a chair in my office, or...
Hoss is Adopted!

Hoss is Adopted!

Heather has had a GSP mix in the past and knew how well mannered a GSP mix can be.  She personally has seen the benefit of an active dog getting the training and exercise to keep both mind and body busy.  She already planned to get Hoss (now Captain) into agility training before even taking him...
Olive is Safe!

Olive is Safe!

We’ve mentioned in a few recent posts that the California GSP Rescue doesn’t shy away from GSPs at the shelter needing medical attention like Roger Dog, or because of age like recently rescued adult GSP, Olive. Olive showed up as a stray at a Southern California shelter that we monitor on a regular basis, with...
Zulu is Adopted!

Zulu is Adopted!

When Dwylene contacted us about adopting another GSP, she wasn’t quite sure her current dog Jake would do well with an addition.  We told her, if she was patient and worked with us, we thought we could find the right fit. We appreciate Dwylene and Gary’s faith in us, because, with time and patience, we...
Whitney is Safe!

Whitney is Safe!

One of the other dogs California GSP Rescue was monitoring the week we learned of Roger Dog, was Whitney. Listed as a black and white male GSP Mix and looking in so sad in the image we were sent, we didn’t think he would be available after the holding period. However, unlike the other shelter...
Matrix is Adopted - Update on the challenge!

Matrix is Adopted – Update on the challenge!

Matrix here… Well Apollo was a close contender.  His “cute”( if you like young, active and crazy) personality won a family over; however I have been talking to this great family, Erik, Teresa and their daughter Brianna for a few weeks now and, being as amazing as I am, won them over just in the...
