Our Foster Dogs

The dogs listed below are in our foster program. The foster home provides a transition period between life in the animal shelter and the new, permanent home. The dogs are given the opportunity to learn any needed social skills and to receive the much needed love, shelter, and medical care they deserve.
  
If you would like more information on any of the dogs in our foster program, begin by completing our adoption questionnaire and reading about our Adoption Process. The adoption questionnaire is the first step in our adoption process, whether you are interested in a particular foster dog or are just beginning to explore the option of adopting a rescued GSP. Please note: The information we give on each dog is based on observations while the dog is in our program. The dog may display different behaviors in your home after adoption due to a number of factors, including different environmental stimuli, disruption of routine, and so on.

Not sure if you are ready to adopt? Perhaps you are interested in fostering? We need foster homes! We can't save the urgent shelter dogs unless we have a foster home in place. Learn more about becoming a foster home. Foster homes receive priority in adopting their foster dog.

Tripper – Our Foster Dog

Tripper is our newest guy and weighs in at a petite 45lbs, but makes up for his small size with his affectionate personality and love for all dogs and people so far! He’s estimated to be 1 year old and is doing great at his current foster home. They describe him as a “social butterfly” and say he sleeps well in his crate at night. He loves playing and is eager to please! We don’t know why he ended up as a stray in the shelter, but feel lucky we get to find him his perfect forever home!

Leo – Our Foster Dog

Hello, my new family! I am Leo. I’m considered myself a cute and very handsome pint-size GSP. I love hanging out with other dogs, I actually like it best when there are other doggie siblings around. I also think of myself as quite smart because I know those things that are called ‘basic commands’. I love sitting right next to my trusted human the most because it feels so safe to be loved. To be honest, I’m a little bit new to the human world, but so far I’m loving it. Don’t even get me started on this wild thing […]

Move over, Prince Harry! There’s a new Harry in town and he is one cute guy!  Harry came to us as a stray and is a GSP mix who is estimated to be around 4-5 years old.

Cassiopeia – Our Foster Dog – Adoption Pending

Please don’t listen to anything my foster-brother tells you…. I consider myself to be kinda’ the perfect GSP!  I mean, look at this list of qualities:  I’m super cute & smart as a whip!  I am crate trained, love to run and wrestle with the playful dogs in my neighborhood, and  I don’t even chase cats.  I know things like sit, down, place, leave-it, and I’m even learning “shake”.  I’m getting pretty good on my recall and I’ll (usually) walk nicely when you are leashed to me. Oh, did I tell you how CUTE I am?? The thing is, I simply have so […]

Pinto – Our Foster Dog

Welcome to Pinto! This adorable 14 year-old gentleman is spry as can be for his age. He loves a nice long walk with his people (as long as there aren’t too many hills). After a walk, he loves to get a dog massage and then crash out for a few hours to nap. Sounds like the good life, right? Pinto is mostly blind, but not too blind to see the outdoor cats at his foster home! He’s living with several other dogs without any issues, although would be best in home where he doesn’t have to deal with too much […]
