I lost my beloved Sancho on October 25th and life will never be quite the same again. I didn’t choose Sancho. He chose me – by jumping in my forerunner at the end of our first visit. “Time to go home!” he seemed to say. Sancho taught me the true power of devotion and love. He came as a rescue with a bundle of anxieties and misbehaviors. Separation anxiety cost me many hoses, carpets, and other assorted objects – as well as my sanity! He never quite outgrew it, but it improved, as did his fear of basketballs. It took […]
Said goodbye to an amazing friend today. We’ll miss you, Bennett. You got us into a ton of fun and helped us learn a lot about ourselves. Thank you. We had some great adventures and we’ll never forget you. We’ll see you in another life. RIP Bennett. We fell in love with Bennett the moment we met him, we rescued him at 8 years old and had 6 amazing years together. He was the easiest dog to love but the hardest to say goodbye to. He’ll forever have a place in our hearts. -Joseph & Allison
Young Abbey (now Lexi) is quite the athlete. She has lots of energy and proved herself capable of clearing a 6-foot fence. Once she was housetrained and crate trained, she discovered the joys of indoor living, and her desire to escape diminished. Lots of exercise and lots of kisses helped, too. She settled in comfortably with her foster family (including a couple of kids and a young Weimaraner sibling)—so comfortably in fact that she is never going to leave. Thank you, Dan and Janel and family, for fostering and adopting Abbey.
Reuben (now Ozzy) showed up as a stray—a mere 30-pound guy at around one year old. Though he is small he has a big heart—greeting every person he meets with a wag and wanting to socialize with every dog, as well. His forever home that has two adults and two teens ready to love him. Both adults are runners, and dad works from home. The entire family is very excited to bring home their first family dog. Thank you, Carol and Mike, for fostering this guy.
Handsome young Felix (now Eddy) turned up in a shelter, a bit worse for the wear. He was generally fit and healthy, but he had developed kennel cough and a urinary tract infection. We soon learned that, while this guy loves to run outdoors, he is gentle and cuddly indoors. He is housetrained, follows his people around closely and comes when called. This boy scored a forever home in the Sierra foothills with a family that has GSP experience and can provide him with all the exercise he needs, as well as a GSP sibling to play with. Thanks Eddy […]
Where in the world did Penelope come from? This 1½ year old princess turned up at a shelter with very good manners. She is housetrained, polite and sits on command. Like any young GSP, she needs lots of activity and room to explore. She is fascinated by anything that squeaks–or whatever her older GSP brother Bruce is playing with at the moment. No wonder her foster family fell in love and decided to make her a permanent part of the family. Thank you, Monique, for fostering and adopting Penelope.
Suzy (now Lucy) is a lovely 9-year-old female who arrived at the shelter as a stray—sweet, calm and gentle. She required extensive veterinary attention, from medications to surgeries and tooth extraction. Suzy was a trooper through all of it, patiently healing while politely seeking affection from the people around her. She has a soulful way of looking in your eyes as if to thank you when you scratch her ears. She is going to a safe and loving forever home where she will get all the attention and snuggling she deserves. Her mom is a Grateful Dead fan and names […]
