Pinta is a pint-sized bundle of 10-year-oldish snuggliness. Indoors, she’s calm, well-behaved, potty-trained and quiet. Outside, she appears to be active and birdy. She doesn’t appear to know “heel”, but is still very easy just on a martingale collar. Pinta learns quickly and bonds fast. Some of her most charming qualities are her perpetual wag, her ears that curl and change shape when she’s happy and her strong desire for belly rubs. She also does a little self-petting when she’s feeling frisky. Pinta is available through Humane Society Silicon Valley, but she’s currently in foster care. So far, she’s doing […]

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 […]
This is a courtesy posting for Top Dogs Rescue and Adoptions Lisette came to us after the family that bought her took her to the vet after episodes of vomiting and she was diagnosed with megaesophogus, which basically is an abnormally large esophagus. They were unprepared to deal with this for her lifetime and surrendered her to rescue. Lisette’s condition means that she needs to be fed sitting up for the rest of her life, but otherwise is a perfect little puppy. If she is not fed properly or gets into food she is at risk for aspirating which can […]
No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you. Tobie really is that cute! This 1 year-old GSP boy is as goofy as he is handsome. His favorite thing is to be first in line for treats! He will require plenty of continued training and structure to be a happy addition to his forever home. He has lived with other dogs successfully, but will do best with a non-reactive dog as he has a tendency to guard high value items from fellow canines. If Tobie is the one you’ve been looking for, he’d love to meet you! (And give you lots of puppy […]

Greeting from Annalise! This sweet girl found herself in a shelter after getting picked up as a stray. We don’t know anything about her history or how she came by the injury to her leg but we welcome the chance to give her a much brighter future. Annalise is happily settling in at her new foster home and is quickly responding to the care and attention she receives there. She is smart, enormously loving and yet has a serious side to her personality. Annalise was delighted when she discovered a toy box and she cleverly creates a game with each toy she chooses. Because of […]

Did someone say, “Play?”. Oh, you can be sure that Kasper will be all in when it comes […]
Rolf is such a handsome dog! While he can be a little uncertain at first, a little time and lots of belly rubs and he’ll be in love! After living his first few years outside in a kennel, he’s still getting used to new people and situations, but has shown a lot of progress and will continue to thrive in the right home. He is fearful of other dogs and would do best in a home as a solo canine. Rolf is a dream on leash, is house trained and can spend 6 hours on his own at home. He […]
