Piper aka Piper3

At ten years old, lovely Piper (now Lady) got her first opportunity to live indoors as a family pet. Her foster home renamed her Lady and started treating her like royalty. Happy retirement, Lady! Thanks, Mary and Tom, for fostering. And thank you, Diana and Tom, for fostering and adopting Lady.

Portia

For a petite gal, Portia (now Thea) is quite strong and high energy. She came into rescue with little training and found opportunities for mischief. Fortunately, she is very responsive to praise and craves approval from her humans, as well as any opportunity to snuggle up with them. Thank you, Ana, for fostering, and thanks Hannah for fostering and adopting Thea.

Sven

Two-year-old Sven (now Augie) turned up as a stray at a central valley shelter. Our partners, Pilots ‘N Paws, flew him to the Bay Area, where we were able to get his tests and vaccinations done, treat his kennel cough, and have him neutered. His foster family renamed him Augie. They found him to be a smart and pleasant fellow who was willing to give up a few bad old habits for their love and approval. Thank you, Ceci, Jeff, Samantha, and Maddy for fostering and adopting this cutie pie.

Connor

From the moment he first arrived in a foster home, Connor (now Otis) proved himself to be simply a doll: a lover and a snuggler, a gentle and well-behaved sweetheart of a pup. He was also a quick learner, eager to please his people–even if that meant learning to chew on dog toys instead of shoes and other enticing household objects. Thank you, Eric and family, for fostering Otis and polishing him into the gem your neighbors just had to apply to adopt. And thanks to Jay, Jody, and boys for making him part of your family.

Caden

We assigned young Caden (now Kadee) to an experienced foster home, but how could her foster mom not fall in love with this beautiful GSP, who played so well with the house canine. Our foster fell in love, despite the pup’s rambunctious energy and urge to chew on almost anything. Once she figured out how to get the girl enough exercise, it was a done deal. Thank you, Kim, for fostering and adopting Kadee.

America – passed away March 15, 2020

When word got out of America’s passing, condolences came flooding in, and almost every one of them included the word “sweet.” America had indeed become a very sweet, lovely, and mellow dog. Which is remarkable, because she was a mess when Claire dropped her off at our home to become our eighth NorCal GSP foster dog. She had sad eyes, a cyst the size of a tennis ball below her jaw, and an oozing gash on her cheek. She’d lived for five years in a large metal cage, taken out only occasionally to hunt. A sawed down plastic barrel was […]

Mickey – passed away March 13, 2020

We lost Mickey unexpectedly, cancer in his abdomen. He joined our home as the fastest foster fail ever, less than two hours, when I, (the one who usually says, “no, we’re not keeping him”), said, “We’re keeping him!” He was the BEST snuggler, always making sure anyone in need of some dog love got some, so much so that visitors often threatened to steal him (jokingly of course). His other favorite activities included basking in sunbeams and going for a paddle on the kayak. Did I mention he loved to snuggle? He will be terribly missed by his siblings, Colby, […]

Flaco – Our Foster Dog

Meet Flaco! This handsome 8 year-old fella is the perfect age for a GSP – still plenty of energy, but past the crazy stage. He’s described by his foster home as sweet, calm and easygoing. His ideal home will still get him plenty of exercise and also plenty of cuddle time! Due to resource guarding with other dogs, Flaco needs to be the only dog in his home. He can also resort to trying to escape if not properly exercised and left alone. A home that can be home with him a lot is preferred.  A training session with a […]

Aggie

Aggie (now Brynn Lee) turned up in a shelter as a stray. Once settled into a foster home, she proved herself to be a sweet girl with a strong nose for critters like squirrels–and way too much interest in cats. Fortunately, she landed in a forever home with two adults, two kids, and a GSP brother to play with, but no kitties. Thank you, Laura and family and Brenda and Steve, for fostering Aggie; and thanks Shani and Ricky and family for offering her a permanent home. Special ear rubs to Bronsyn for sharing the human love and laps with […]
