Dasher – Our Foster Dog – Adoption Pending

Oh Dasher, how did we name you? Let us count the ways….. We thought your name was apt because you were found en-flight at the time Santa was making his rounds with Dancer and Prancer and the others. But laying eyes upon you, we realize it is your dashing good looks that provided the name. However you have shown us that, like every young, vibrant GSP, you are always on the ready to dash away, dash away, when your human is not keeping a close eye on you. Luckily you are so jolly and playful that humans and canine friends fall […]

It didn’t take long […]

After working with Sarah for almost a year, they discovered that she had wormed her way into their hearts and earned a permanent spot in their home. Thank you, Mary and Alan for fostering and adopting Sarah, and for training her with such consistency and care. […]
