Brandy is Adopted!

Brandy is Adopted!

Brandy is everything you read about a GSP – a true “velcro dog”, which is exactly what Jeremy and his family were looking for.  She’s been affectionate, great with their other dog, and always wants to be near her family members. She has also been a great ambassador for rescue as Jeremy tells us friends...

Frieda is Adopted!

When Michelle and Mike were looking for their first family dog, they knew they wanted  a running partner,  but mostly they wanted a dog that would be an excellent match for their three young daughters. They were patient and although it took about 6 weeks, they put their faith in the rescue and waited for...

Piper is a 2 year old liver and white ticked German Shorthaired Pointer. She is good with other dogs and people, but is very good at entertaining herself as well. Being a young GSP, Piper needs plenty of exercise to keep her busy!  She walks great on a leash so that will be easy!  Of...
Getting to Know Gracie

Getting to Know Gracie

To say Gracie is a volunteer favorite is an understatement.  She is so affectionate with people and so well mannered with all of the dogs in the field.  She is a great size and demeanor.  She is a love! She is the perfect “turn key” dog, and could go to almost any home, although she would...
Do you know this dog?

Do you know this dog?

Please read the following description and let us know if this GSP reminds YOU of  a dog you know: He is obsessed with balls, kongs and flies. If  you put the ball away, be sure it is high and he doesn’t see you do it – or he will find a way to get it!...
An Important Message From Trigger

An Important Message From Trigger

My name is Trigger and I lived with a really nice man almost all of my life. He loved me, he trained and pet me, and I had some other dogs in our house for company. Not too long ago, he wasn’t there any more and the rest of the family brought me here to the...

Matrix Here Waiting...

Matrix Here Waiting…

Matrix here…”I’m in foster care and I am waiting for a home of my own.  People see me and overlook me because I’m eight, but I have a lot of surprises for them and what they don’t know, is most of them couldn’t keep up with the likes of ME! I love to play with my...

Sheryl, Jessica and their dog Maggie really wanted to help a dog in need.  They were open to many types of “needs” but wanted both a good personality fit for their Maggie and themselves.  They came out a few times to meet a dog named Ramp that was a volunteer favorite.  He had medical needs...
A Plea For Buddy Rudy

A Plea For Buddy Rudy

We are desperately seeking a foster or adopter for an easy, sweet, wonderful dog we call Buddy Rudy. He has an autoimmune disease and the best we can hope for is long-term remission – a stable home environment could make a big difference with this. Most importantly, we want Buddy Rudy to have a home...
