Winston came into rescue at a mere twelve weeks old, suffering from the most extreme case of Cuteness Overload we may have ever seen! Everything was still new to this babe, but we soon discovered that he is a complete love bug who adores people of all ages–and dogs, too. Thanks so much, Eric and family, for fostering this gorgeous puppy, allowing him to invade your busy lives and ‘explore’ your landscaping. Frankly, we can’t believe you managed to avoid adopting him, but you did–making a couple from Napa delighted to add him to their family. Thank you, Emily and […]
Some things are simply meant to be….Boscoe (now Cooper) was relinquished to a shelter when his owner died. On the day he was scheduled to be turned over to us, one of our patrons found out about him and rushed straight to the shelter to try to adopt him. We had already approved this man to adopt, so we phoned the shelter to let them know he was coming and to instruct them to let the man take Boscoe home. Through a series of accidents—a number misdialed, messages missed—the man went home empty-handed, because the shelter had assigned that dog […]
Handsome Buzz (now Bochy) is always smiling, just grinning ear to ear. He carries some scars that indicate why he may not be too crazy about other dogs, but boy does he love his people! He adores human attention and cuddling. He’ll gladly do tricks for praise, and he is always ready to go for a hike or play ball. Thank you, Anna and family, for fostering Buzz until he found his perfect home. He’s been adopted by an active young couple who now call him Bochy.
Young Tulip (now Sadie) was picked up as a stray, but the shelter was full. She needed to find a foster home with no other dogs ASAP, as her time was up. Alli and Joseph had lost their beloved Bennett (a NorCal GSP alum) a few months earlier, and were ready to step up and help another dog in need. They agreed to foster Tulip (now Sadie) for two weeks, but fell in love with her the moment she arrived at their door. Sadie snuggled right up to them immediately—35 pounds of kisses and cuddles. Adoption Day happened quickly. Welcome […]
Dipper (now Jake) is adopted! Dipper’s foster objective was to learn how to live with humans and live in a house, neither of which he had done before. Who knew that he would learn most by learning how to play? Foster sibling Rally, the old man, laid down the law in the house. Through Rally, Dipper learned the house rules–and how to enjoy lounging on comfy chairs. And it was foster sibling Minnie that taught him how to have fun. He learned how to let loose, go full-out, and have no fear. This helped Dipper relax and be open to the many experiences he would […]
Lumi, a young GSP-Catahoula mix, is quite the looker. Turns out she is as sweet as she is beautiful. She needed to learn basic commands and potty training, but she is a fast learner and mastered all that in no time, meanwhile charming her foster family with her feisty spirit and her fondness for cuddling. She bonded quickly with the entire family. Lumi will never have to scavenge for food again. Instead, she’ll be spending her days chasing balls, making dog friends around the neighborhood, terrorizing squirrels, running with her biking and skateboarding brothers, and taking walks on the beach […]
Young Hamilton was a submissive, belly crawling, pup-thetic mess when he came into rescue. He pooped, peed and vomited during his transport from the shelter to the vet. He would pee whenever anyone so much as looked at him. In spite of his problems, a foster home stepped up to care for him and help him through his transition to a new life. When he first arrived, he barely moved; he would just freeze – fearful of everything new. He slept through the night in his crate, but his tail would start thumping the minute he heard the kids waking up, […]
