Gunnar

Gunnar showed up at a shelter as a stray just before Christmas. It was evident from his ribs that he’d been on the road for some time. His foster Mom (thanks, Kiara!) found him eager to scavenge and counter-surf, but he soon learned that he would get regular meals and lots of treats. His four older GSP foster siblings helped teach him house manners and curb his puppy-like enthusiasm for pranks. He learned to chill out and snuggle with the pack. Gunnar found his forever home quickly, with a family that lives not too far away and knows GSPs. Gunnar’s […]

Clark – passed away January 14, 2017

We adopted Clark from NorCal GSP Rescue in 2008 at the age of 9. We will always remember our first moments with him.

Clark was the perfect dog – calm and stately, but also silly […]

Finnigan

Finnigan took his time looking for a perfect forever home. Why should he be in a rush, when he had fabulous foster parents (thanks Cari and Mark!) and a couple of canine foster siblings? He impressed his foster family with his calm demeanor, mastery of basic commands, excellent recall, and ability to get along with everyone (including kids, and even cats!). At last he has found a family that loves to do all the things Finny most enjoys—hiking, camping, car rides, and snuggling on the sofa for some armchair quarterbacking.  Adopted December 2016. Thanks to a Petfinder Foundation grant, Finnigan […]
