Our Foster Dogs

The dogs listed below are in our foster program. The foster home provides a transition period between life in the animal shelter and the new, permanent home. The dogs are given the opportunity to learn any needed social skills and to receive the much needed love, shelter, and medical care they deserve.
If you would like more information on any of the dogs in our foster program, begin by completing our adoption questionnaire and reading about our Adoption Process. The adoption questionnaire is the first step in our adoption process, whether you are interested in a particular foster dog or are just beginning to explore the option of adopting a rescued GSP. Please note: The information we give on each dog is based on observations while the dog is in our program. The dog may display different behaviors in your home after adoption due to a number of factors, including different environmental stimuli, disruption of routine, and so on.

Not sure if you are ready to adopt? Perhaps you are interested in fostering? We need foster homes! We can't save the urgent shelter dogs unless we have a foster home in place. Learn more about becoming a foster home. Foster homes receive priority in adopting their foster dog.
Not able to foster but want to help one of our wonderful foster dogs? Check out how you can become a Guardian Angel! See all the options for helping (some free!) under our Donate tab.

Fig Newton – Our Foster Dog – Adoption Pending

Fig Newton is as sweet as his name! Fig Newton is a 4-year-old young male GSP mix. He’s a sweet, happy guy who has all the traits you’d want in a dog. He loves to cuddle so much that he is even willing to skip a walk or playtime here and there if it means more time cuddled up next to his person. He also will get the zoomies and bound around the house and yard, providing endless entertainment. And on top of all that, he is so smart and loves to learn! He takes right to any training cues and you […]

Cassiopeia – Our Foster Dog

Please don’t listen to anything my foster-brother tells you…. I consider myself to be kinda’ the perfect GSP!  I mean, look at this list of qualities:  I’m super cute & smart as a whip!  I am crate trained, love to run and wrestle with the playful dogs in my neighborhood, and  I don’t even chase cats.  I know things like sit, down, place, leave-it, and I’m even learning “shake”.  I’m getting pretty good on my recall and I’ll (usually) walk nicely when you are leashed to me. Oh, did I tell you how CUTE I am?? The thing is, I simply have so […]

Pinto – Our Foster Dog

Welcome to Pinto! This adorable 14 year-old gentleman is spry as can be for his age. He loves a nice long walk with his people (as long as there aren’t too many hills). After a walk, he loves to get a dog massage and then crash out for a few hours to nap. Sounds like the good life, right? Pinto is mostly blind, but not too blind to see the outdoor cats at his foster home! He’s living with several other dogs without any issues, although would be best in home where he doesn’t have to deal with too much […]
