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.

Rubicon – Our Foster Dog

The Rubicon Trail is a historic Native American trail in “Gold Country”, where our Rubicon spent the first part of her life.  Nicknamed Rubi, she is a golden gem.  At only two years old, this beautiful girl is going to be a rich asset for her future family.  She is super active, thrives on work, and wants to please.  The more Rubi can run and investigate with her nose, the happier she is.  After a day romping outdoors, maybe with a canine sibling, she wants only to curl up on the couch with her human and snuggle.  Rubi is scary-smart so an owner that […]

Comet – Our Foster Dog

  Comet is one special dog! He’s part of the Super Moon pack we rescued and has shown to be a loving, fun guy.  He’s ~2 years old and is gradually learning about the good life and what it means to be in a loving home.  His favorite things to do are play with his foster sister, another young GSP, go exploring around the yard, and just cuddle up with his humans.  He has a very active brain and would love a space where he can roam and run around!  He would also make a great hiking buddy.  He has done […]

Cassiopeia – Our Foster Dog

It’s hard to resist the cuteness of Cassiopeia. She came to us in our massive Super Snow Moon rescue effort as a scared, nervous young pup. Cassiopeia (nickname Sash) is doing so much better, but a new environment, tiny noises, new places, and people still can scare her. She will do best in a home where someone is home with her most of the time to gain that trust and give her the confidence she needs. She’s living with another dog right now and loves to play with her all day long. She needs a lot of exercise, as any young GSP does! She […]

Delilah – Our Foster Dog

Delilah is a sweet little girl who enjoys running around and chasing squirrels. She rides nicely in the car and sleeps nicely in the crate. Delilah has had successful play dates with other dogs, and really loves spending time with her people.  She still has a lot to learn, so she’s looking for a forever family who will teach her to be the best girl she can be. If you’re looking for a companion to spend your time with, Delilah would love to meet you!

Jacob – Our Foster Dog – Adoption Pending

Mid-December, we were contacted by a shelter about a young GSP boy with a broken leg. Knowing time was of the essence to get his leg looked at and repaired, we were able to identify a foster home quickly and get him immediately to the vet. Jacob had surgery shortly thereafter to repair the break. Now he’s healing and soaking up the good life at his foster home. He’ll need a number of weeks of cage rest and recovery, but his prognosis is good. More information will be coming as we learn more about his personality and how he does […]

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 […]
