Bacall – Referral Posting in Porterville, CA

Bacall is a good-looking 8-year-old spayed female in need of a new home. She’s 45 pounds, in good health, up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped.

She loves to play fetch, run, and dig. She is extremely fast! […]

Roy – Our Foster Dog

Meet Roy!  This poor guy has had a string of bad luck.  Roy was hit by a car at the end of December, then ended up at the shelter where it was determined that he has a broken hip.  After being rescued 3 weeks later, he was taken to the vet and tested positive for Ehrlichia, in addition to having kennel cough, so he will be on antibiotics for at least a month.  Once he’s cleared for surgery, he will have the necessary surgery to repair his hip.  Despite all he’s been through Roy is all smiles and his foster […]

Tuco

Tuco’s owner could no longer care for him once he became terminally ill. We found him a GSP-experienced foster home, where he made a wonderful transition from his 300-acre sheep ranch environment to a Bay Area suburban setting. Obviously, he’s a quick learner. He’s also very active, and generally a happy, loving boy. No wonder his foster family decided to keep him. They’re retired and plan to spend lots of time walking, training, and playing with Tuco–and he’ll get to go on summer road trips to their Idaho lake cabin, as well!

Rookie

When we first rescued young Rookie, he came down with Parvo! We got him the help he needed and found a loving foster home to teach him basic skills and manners. Rookie proved himself to be a sweetheart with tons of energy and affection–and a quick learner. He has gone to a forever home with lots of GSP experience, where he will get all the attention and training he needs, as well as a GSP brother (alum Walter) to play and snuggle with. Thank you, Brenda & Steve, for fostering Rookie. And thanks, Judi & Peter, for fostering and adopting […]

Jake fka Tumbleweed – passed away January 15, 2020

Our sweet Jake passed away very early in the morning on January 15th, 2020. We are all heartbroken, of course, but are also beyond thankful for having had him for 11 of his nearly 13 years of life. We were enchanted by Jake the minute we saw him, in the spring of 2008. Well, I should say, my husband was, because he was the first one in the door at the foster home, and declared “We’ll take him!” before the rest of the family had even seen the little guy! Thank you, Bill & Cheryl Reese, for the wonderful job […]

Addy

Young Addy (now Grace) was rescued from a life of being chained up in a yard. She has moved on from those scary days and nights and has learned how to live the good life. She is being adopted by a home that has two adults, two boys, and a GSP sister to play with her and dote on her. Thank you, Jill and Anne & Brad, for fostering Addy and working through her medical issues, as well as her separation anxiety. She blossomed into a super sweet girl who loves all dogs, kids, and adults. And thank you, Stacy and family, […]

Wrigley

We rescued young Wrigley from the shelter where he’d turned up as a stray and placed him in a foster home with a playful Pitbull puppy named Clementine. Wrigley got along great with the pup and its humans, too. He loved to fetch tennis balls and snuggle on the sofa. No wonder this good boy was snapped up by someone who’s been active in our rescue group for years. Now he can go to work, on runs, and hunting with his new dad. Thank you, Taryn and family, for fostering Wrigley, and thanks Peter for adopting him.

Oliver aka Oliver3

Oliver is just over 10 years old, but still acts like a young dog. He loves to go on car rides, especially when the windows are down and he can let his ears flap and do some serious sniffing. He’s a sweet, easy-going guy who got along great with the other dogs in his foster home, and didn’t even chase the cat–much! He came with manners, too. He doesn’t beg, he’s good with kids, and he is easy to walk on leash. No wonder he got snapped up by a good forever family. Thank you, Syda, for fostering Oliver; and thanks Wade and […]
