Miles (formerly Andretti) – passed away May 2018

We are heartbroken at having to say goodbye to Miles. We had him for 10 fun-filled years and to this day, it’s still hard to believe that someone didn’t turn over every corner of the earth to get him back. He was an incredible dog and we were so lucky to have him in our life. One of his aunts described him as having a “big personality” and he truly did, along with a big heart and generous spirit. He loved napping in the bathtub, retrieving just about anything that wasn’t nailed down and like a true pointer, chasing squirrels. […]

Emmett – passed away May 29, 2018

Hello, I wanted to let your group know that we lost our boy today. He was adopted from your group at 6 weeks old; found as part of a litter near Porterville which was all euthanized. Our Emmett saved himself by hiding and then pointing at his water dish when pointer rescue came to get another dog from the shelter. He was with us for almost 15 years. He was the best boy, jogging buddy, and best friend to our two sons. We will miss him forever. We had to make the hard choice to put him to sleep due […]

Patterson (formerly Magoo) – passed away May 17, 2018

Dear Patterson, It is with sad hearts and deep regret that we said goodbye to you yesterday our “big guy” and beloved family member. Back in August of 2008 they all thought I was crazy when I thought we needed a friend for Lizzie. You had come to NorCal GSP Rescue group after an accident in which you got hit by a truck in Patterson, CA. The off duty firefighter that hit you and his people rallied around you and got you the help you needed to save your life. After losing your right rear leg they looked for your […]

Dallas aka Dallas2

Sweet Dallas (now Murphy) was an Owner Surrender.  His people turned him in to a Vet because they couldn’t address his needs, including a case of pneumonia.  The vet contacted us and we took him in.  We were instantly impressed with how mellow this boy was, as well as polite and well trained.  He knew basic commands.  He came when called. He was loving around humans of all sorts, even children–just wanting to shower them with kisses. He would spin in circles of joy whenever his humans came home. He stole the hearts of some of our most seasoned foster […]

Sweet Pea

When Sweet Pea was surrendered, Catherine and Jen stepped up to foster for the umpteenth time. They’ve fostered so many dogs, they were confident they could resist Sweet Pea’s charms. Boy were they wrong! They became foster failures again, in almost record time. In her defense, Catherine wrote: “How can you deny the perfect dog? She smiles constantly, doesn’t try to eat the cats, is great in the house, no counter surfing. Colby (aka Mr. Grumpypants) hardly growled at her…I think he likes her! And when she’s happy to see you—which is all the time–she wags her (full) tail so […]
