Jasmine turned up in a shelter, along with the three Chihuahuas she had been living with when her owner died. We found her a great new home on the coast. At first she would get stiff from short walks, but now she is running full speed for twenty minutes at a time, keeping up with her active parents. She’s also learning how to share toys and human attention with a canine sister who wants to be queen of the house as much as Jasmine does. Good luck, Jasmine. May you continue to blossom and learn that there are enough toys […]
Gertrude showed up as a stray at a shelter, with a wobbly front leg, possibly due to an old, untreated injury–no fun for a 3 year old GSP who just wants to romp! An MRI showed that she had a tendon that needed to be “released,” at a cost of $4,000. Thanks to our donors, the surgery was completed successfully. Gertie’s biggest problem then was that the halo prevented her from carrying rolls of toilet paper around, her favorite indoor sport. Her foster family, a couple with extensive GSP experience, fell in love with her and adopted her. Now she […]
Layla’s recovering from her surgery and got a chance to get out in the world and do some hiking. She’s doing well on her new harness and loves to check out little birdies and critters, in pure GSP form.
Minnie Mouse has made it her mission to become bffs with her foster sibling and she’s learning all the ropes of living in a warm and loving home! She’s discovering how to live with chickens and all the necessary house manners.
Jasmine is settling into her foster home and while she is getting in shape and used to a new family, looks like she has made a new BFF!
Frannie didn’t get to pick her first family. She was left alone a lot, without even canine companionship. She expressed her dissatisfaction by barking and destructive behavior. She just wasn’t understood, so when her family gave her up to rescue, she decided that she was going to get everything right the second time around. First, she landed a wonderful foster home with Catherine, Mac, and their GSP rescue alum, Colby. Frannie got along with everyone– humans, canines, and all other sorts of animals. But she got especially excited whenever she saw children. They were on her level; they liked to […]
Abner had the most amazing rescue journey ever. When we learned that he’d shown up as a stray at a full shelter in Bakersfield, we devised an elaborate plan to bring him to safety in northern California. Four of our volunteers coordinated to spring him from the shelter, drive him to Fresno, then to Chowchilla, then to Manteca, then to his temporary foster home in Fiddletown. After a much-needed bath and some basic vet attention, Abner emerged as a lover boy and a character. He loved to kiss and snuggle; he snored blissfully; he chased cats, and tried to engage […]
