Meet Liam!

Meet Liam!

Liam is a 5 year old male liver and white ticked German Shorthaired Pointer.  We are not quite sure why this handsome fellow wound up at a shelter, but we are getting to know Liam, and this is what we have learned. The perfect home for Liam would be one with a mellow dog.  He...
Forrest Has His Eye On The Finish Line

Forrest Has His Eye On The Finish Line

Forrest is a 12-1/2 year old German Shorthaired Pointer. He was rescued when he was about 18 months old. For the past 11 years, he has been a happy, healthy and active GSP that has been surrounded by an abundance of love from his family. Forrest belongs to two of our volunteers, and we asked...
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...
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...
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...
Charlotte and Clyde - A Forever Home Together

Charlotte and Clyde – A Forever Home Together

Charlotte (10) and Clyde (6) are two great GSPs looking for a forever home – together. Although they have only been together for the past couple of years, it is clear that Clyde looks to Charlotte for guidance, just as he did his GSP sister in his very first home. In turn, Clyde keeps Charlotte...
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...
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...
Chase Is A Senior?? You Be The Judge!

Chase Is A Senior?? You Be The Judge!

At an estimated 8 years old, Chase is – technically – almost a “senior”. Other than his calm demeanor, however, there is nothing “senior” about this cool dude! He is always willing to play with the little dogs, a flash of light on the floor, or that thingy that goes “boing” behind the door!  Check...
Lucy is Adopted!

Lucy is Adopted!

Lucy is adopted! Her new family, Louise and Mike sent us an update shortly after taking her home, “She is doing really well and has made herself right at home. We found out quickly the commands she knows when we brought out a cookie.  She went through them all!” Lucy is enjoying having a family...
