Emma – passed away January 26, 2018

Emma was a Dalmatian-English Pointer mix saved from a kill shelter by NorCal GSP Rescue. She came to us afraid of the world; she would start shaking at the mere sight of another dog or at the sound of the printer whirring. She suffered from fear-based aggression. But with lots of TLC and patience, she grew into a playful pest to her Weimaraner big brother and a more secure and confident girl who loved the outdoors. Other than two four-legged friends, she didn’t care much for other dogs or other people. Yet she was a sweet and affectionate companion to […]

Skye (formerly London) – passed away January 4, 2018

Skye passed to Rainbow Bridge at 12:59 am on January 4, 2018, at home at the age of 11. I held her as she left me. Last year she was diagnosed with arthritis, benign tumors on her liver and spleen, and liver failure. Her vet and I kept her comfortable with medication but we knew it was a matter of time. She was a gentle mellow soul and loved her people, her doggy friends, her yard and house. Skye loved walkies, treats and her many dog beds around the house. She groomed herself like a cate – she was the […]

Lillian – passed away January 4, 2018

Lily was one of the happiest dogs I’ve ever known. The way she would perk up when she would see me or my husband—her big brown eyes would sparkle and her huge elephant-like ears would fan out with her constantly wagging tail. She had a way of making you feel like you were the most important thing in the world and like she had been in our lives forever. We had so many great adventures together. We hiked in many dog-friendly parks and had our favorite trails that she would zoom along forcing slow people to get out of her […]

Nala aka Nala2

Nala was born healthy, but with part of one back foot missing. That hasn’t slowed her down. With GSP puppy energy to burn, she adapted to zooming around using a modified bunny hop. An orthopedic specialist determined that she would be fine using that strategy for many years to come. No need for surgery—good news for Nala! We placed her in a foster home with two other dogs and patient humans to teach her leash etiquette and house manners (thanks for fostering, Anna and Brad).  She emerged as courageous, inquisitive, fun loving and full of life. It didn’t take long […]

Sarah

When pretty Sarah turned up as a stray at a shelter, she seemed afraid of new situations, as well as of other dogs and people. Fortunately, this petite young gal landed in a dog-savvy foster home with two GSPs, a mixed breed and several cats–which just shows how much patience her foster family has. After working with Sarah for almost a year, they discovered that she had wormed her way into their hearts and earned a permanent spot in their home. Thank you, Mary and Alan for fostering and adopting Sarah, and for training her with such consistency and care. […]
