It was the most wonderful year (with Baylee), we had so much darned fun together, and as nutty as she could be, I loved her with all my heart, she was the pup who needed the most from a rescue-mom and it was worth every minute. It helps to know that I did my absolute very best to be a good adoption-mom for her, daily walks, shopping, runs at the cemetery, I cooked her food, she ate what I ate, veggies & high-quality meat and even soup & salad, she loved it all. I never met a more loving dog and […]
At about five years of age, Leia showed up as a stray in a shelter. We don’t know much about her life before she came into rescue, except that she had had puppies. She landed at her foster home with a regal air, yet she was afraid to enter the house. It took her a few weeks to warm up to the new humans and their bevy of male GSPs. Initially very cautious and a bit bossy, she soon relaxed and became quite loving. She learned to accept petting, to cherish naps in a wingback chair, and to enjoy hunting […]
At just over one year old, Olive was surrendered to a shelter. She is a big, lanky gal—gorgeous, smart, sweet, curious and energetic. Her first-time foster family found her endlessly entertaining, as she introduced them to the art of counter surfing and taught them to ‘fetch’ all the tennis balls she would roll out of reach under appliances.

Tiny Poppy, only three months old and weighing in at 16 pounds, showed up as a stray at a shelter. She came into rescue with kennel cough, runny eyes, diarrhea, and a whole lot of personality. Like most GSP pups, she needed structure, training, loving care, consistency–and some moments to simply chase her tail. She got all that (as well as a canine sibling to torment) from her foster home, which—no surprise—fell in love with her immediately. Thank you Jeannie and family for fostering and adopting Poppy.
