Rhett – Our Foster Dog

Well hello there handsome!

Rhett is a handsome senior shorthair, ready to find love with you! Terribly thin when he arrived in his foster home, he’s chowing down now and we expect him to fill out nicely. His tests at the vet were all within what you’d expect for an older dog. Rhett loves people, loves other dogs. Loves cats too much, so a home without a kitty cat is preferred. We suspect he may have been an outdoor only dog before, since he didn’t know what to make of stairs, but smart boy that he is, he’s learning quickly. Rhett enjoys walks and […]

Ladybug – Our Foster Dog

Ladybug is a darling little girl!

Ladybug is the sweetest petite GSP! Since being rescued from the shelter, she has been recovering her smile and happy personalty slowly but surely. She’s much warmer towards her foster home than in the first few days. She relies on her GSP foster sister to show her the way to interact with people. Another dog in the home is a must for Ladybug. A quiet, patient family that will give her time to warm up to them is also a must-have for this sweet girl. She is also working on walking on a leash – she’s a little freaked out […]

Piper – Our Foster Dog

Piper is a beauty!

Piper just arrived! We’re discovering more about this cute 10 month-old girl each day, but currently we know: she is good with other large dogs, enjoys the company of her humans, and has a very strong prey drive (no cats or small dogs in the home). She will need her forever home to work with her on training, but she’s a quick learner. We believe Piper might be a Brittany Spaniel/GSP mix.

Kona – Our Foster Dog – Sponsored by a Fairy Dogmother!

Kona has the biggest smile!

Kona thinks she’s a person. Naturally, she wants to do people things! Hang out on the sofa and watch a movie, go for a drive – these are all things Kona would like to spend her days doing. For her, people time is the best thing in the world. She’s not so sure about spending time with other dogs just yet. She’d like a home where she can be the only dog (ahem, we mean “human”) and keep all the love to herself. Her favorite trick: wrapping herself up in a blanket by grabbing it with her mouth and pulling it over […]

Rosie – Our Foster Dog

NorCal GSP_0485

Rosie is all sweetness and fun! This absolutely beautiful 12 year-old sweetie pie had a rough few months before she landed in our rescue. Her owner died and she and her golden retriever siblings ended up with a neighbor. When a relative came to retrieve the dogs, they left Rosie behind! First she had lost her human companion and now her doggy companions as well! But that’s the great thing about Rosie – judging by the constant smile on her face, she hasn’t let any of this get her down. She’s loving life at her foster home and just is a […]

Before Dottie came to us, she was rescued from an abuse case where she and another GSP were the victim of tortuous treatment by their former owner, including a version of waterboarding. It’s unbelievable what this girl has been through, but she is such […]
