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.
 
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.

Zuma – Our Foster Dog – Adoption Pending

Meet Zuma! This 5 month-old puppy was surrendered to us when his owners determined that a young prey driven GSP puppy couldn’t live successfully on a chicken ranch. He does have a very strong prey drive, but is also extremely sweet. He loves playing with the other dogs in the home, including another GSP puppy! Can you say chaos? If you’re interested in adding cute Zuma to your home, please apply.

Beauford – Our Foster Dog – Adoption Pending

Beauford lives up to his name because this guy is SO handsome!  He came to us needing a new home, but that hasn’t diminished his spirit!  His foster home says he’s a goofy guy, with his tongue always out and is always wiggling his body around.  Since he’s young (1 years old) he is energetic and will need a family to continue his training and give him plenty of exercise.  He gets along well with other dogs, kids, and loves playing fetch!  His foster mom even says he has a really soft mouth and will always release it at your […]

Franny – Our Foster Dog

Welcome Franny! This 5 year-old GSP mix is sweet as can be. Franny lived most of her life outside before she came to us, but she’s no stranger to the life of luxury. She was quick to take to the couch and will happily cuddle with you in bed if invited up. Franny is a good girl with other dogs and would love to play with some furry friends. She also has good manners, knows how to sit and shake and will go into a crate (a bit reluctantly). She would love to find a home where she can keep up […]

Ellsie – Our Foster Dog

Hello Ellsie! This sweet little 3 year-old GSP mix is the definition of adorable. She takes a few days to warm up after a hard life outside before she came to us, but once she knows you, she falls hard! She loves to smile at her people when they come home by crinkling up her nose. It’s the cutest thing! Ellsie can luve with other dogs, but prefers those that are less pushy and does have some tendency towards resource guarding. She has experience living with her mom and siblings. She also may have lived with a housecat in her last […]

Little Lucy – Our Foster Dog

Little Lucy may be our tiniest GSP we’ve had, but she has so much love to give!  She is great with other dogs, is house trained, crate trained, and is learning new commands quickly! She does need someone who can continue to work with her on her training and give her clear boundaries. She also would benefit from having a canine companion at home with her to help with her socialization and keep her company. As with any other young GSP, she needs a good amount of exercise so an active home would be ideal for Little Lucy, but also one […]

Sarah – Our Foster Dog

Pretty Sarah! This 1 year-old doll of a dog landed in our lap after she turned up as a stray at the shelter. She is now in a loving foster home where she is proving to be the sweetest little gal (she’s less than 40 lbs!) We think she’s a mix, maybe some Border Collie or even Whippet in there. She’s got a sweet, fun puppy energy. Sarah walks nicely on a leash for the most part, but can be a bit reactive while on leash with other dogs. She loves to have a bit of space to run – […]

James – Our Foster Dog

Meet James! James arrived at his foster home looking like he’d seen better days. His eyes were sad, his coat was rough, and his entire body was painful. From the looks of him, he had spent his whole life outside and had never known the comforts of a loving home. He melted into his bed that night.  If you touched him wrong and/or surprised him, he would yelp in pain. When he made it to the vet, they cleaned years’ worth of gunk and debris from his sore, inflamed ears and a prescription for Deramaxx quickly took the edge off […]

Savanna – Our Foster Dog – Adoption Pending

Welcome Savanna! This beautiful southern belle was surrendered to the shelter by her owner when they moved away. Her life was turned upside down in an instant, but we were there to turn it the right way round again. Savanna is now enjoying the comfort and love of her foster home. And good girl that she is, she’s proved to be both crate-trained and house-trained, and will go into crate with the command “go to bed.” She is also perfecting the commands sit, down, stay, come and leave it. She loves a nice few walks per day. So far, she […]

Layla – Our Foster Dog

Layla is too adorable! This sweet 10 year-old has a “hummingbird tail” according to her foster home – it never stops wagging! Besides being cute, Layla does very well on leash with a harness, seems to be house-trained, and is a good copilot. She needs to work on learning basic commands, but is eager to please. Oh and she is happy to hang out at home while you’re at work. She enjoys a little time alone to catch up on her naps! But then she’ll be overjoyed to see you when you come home. A great all-around girl! Medical update – […]
