Axel – passed away November 2018

I am writing to let you know that Axel has passed away. We adopted Axel from NorCal 6 or 7 years ago after he had been in foster homes for 2+ years and you were getting desperate to find a home for him – mostly because he did not get along well with other dogs. At first, Axel could become a neurotic mess, mostly when outside and overstimulated. He could wear a trough in the ground from repeatedly running back and forth over one track. It did not take too long however for him to discover that he was no […]

Ruth – passed away November 24, 2018

I’m convinced that Ruth found us . . .  A friend of a friend followed a dog rescue in Sonora CA that I became aware of through social media. I started following them. Months later, a courtesy posting with Ruth’s picture appeared. She was beautiful! The owner was moving and could not take 11-year-old Ruth with her. Ruth was to be euthanized in just a few days if she didn’t find a home. I decided I needed to help her. Never did I think we’d grow our family from 2 to 3 large dogs. But I had to help her […]

Sully

Sully is 44 pounds of sheer energy. At somewhere between 3 and 5 years old, he is also very sociable and loving. This lucky boy found a permanent home with retired parents who have GSP experience and time to devote to him. Sully also now has an energetic 3-year old canine brother to play with. Thank you Eddy, Megan and Liz for fostering Sully.

Dex

Young Dex (now Rudy) showed up at a shelter as a stray, with kennel cough and in need of neutering. Otherwise, he seemed to be in fine form. Right off the bat, he was polite and loving with his foster parents, went into his crate willingly, and does not bark or whine at all (the mailman is thrilled). Rudy is a smart boy, quick to learn, but stubborn as a rock – when he wants to be.   Rudy has a waggy tail and kisses for everyone; as if to say: “Hey fosters, what’s not to love about me?” They heard […]

August – passed away November 14, 2018

Augie was a senior dog when we adopted him, at least 10, but with the behavior of a dog much older, and we guessed having lived outside or on his own for a good period of time. He had an eye injury and was neutered just before he came to us, so he was not attractive or a happy camper and our GSP, Fielder, was not into being a friend to him. We brought him to an adoption fair, and all he wanted to do was sit on us, as we sat in camp chairs. He wasn’t very attractive to […]
