You Have To Meet Phoenix!

PhoenixYou have to meet Phoenix!  This is something the volunteers will often tell other volunteers when they are in the field.  Why you may ask?  Because Phoenix is amazing!

Everyone should meet this dog…and most of us would be lucky to have a dog such as Phoenix in our home just once in our lifetime!  He is a chocolate GSP-mix (possibly GSP-lab) and is the kindest, gentlest most people pleasing dog…

In Memory of Buddy Rudy

In Memory of Buddy Rudy

buddyIt is with very heavy hearts that we tell you of the passing of Buddy Rudy. Though we will greatly miss his affection and attention, we try to concentrate on the “extra” year of chasing birds and hunting gophers that we were privileged to give him. Our goal for each dog at the rescue is for them to have their own happy-ever-after family.  For Buddy Rudy, though, the volunteers and Jan became his…

Elvis is Safe!

Elvis A1145672Recently we learned of a GSP at a local shelter that was rescue only. When we inquired about why he was rescue only, and we were told it was because they thought he might be blind. Uncommon but not unheard of, California GSP Rescue has placed a few blind dogs.

We asked the shelter if the GSP was an owner relinquishment and were told that he was found as a stray. Really?!? After spending just a…

Reasons to choose (Two) GSPs!

Reasons to choose (Two) GSPs!

Kasey_Sasha_DSC_9848w64-300x300A little over two years ago, a bonded pair was relinquished to the California GSP Rescue – much like  Charlotte and Clyde recently were.  We realize very few people start out with the intention of adopting TWO at once, so we asked double-adopter Victoria to share her story in hopes it will spark a “maybe I can” thought in someone’s head. Hopefully, this will be the beginning of Charlotte and…

Spike is Safe!

SpikeFrom time to time we’ll inquire about a dog in a local shelter and we’ll get a response that states they (the shelter) think they can place the dog. Such was the case with Spike. After the initial inquiry, we received a reply from the shelter stating they thought they could find find him a home.  We were a little surprised at the response as Spike was an adult GSP, typically the shelters can…

Charlotte and Clyde - A Forever Home Together

Charlotte and Clyde – A Forever Home Together

Clyde CharlotteCharlotte (10) and Clyde (6) are two great GSPs looking for a forever home – together. Although they have only been together for the past couple of years, it is clear that Clyde looks to Charlotte for guidance, just as he did his GSP sister in his very first home. In turn, Clyde keeps Charlotte young and young-at-heart by initiating a little mischief now and again!

They both love to fetch! Being…

Koa is Adopted!

Koa certainly hasKoa Nathan Kristenhad some very special people in his life. First, was Josh and Brittany – fosters and adopters from the Rescue – who found him while out in the wilderness. He was so scared and timid it took HOURS to “catch” him and take him home. Next, the volunteers at the Rescue used plenty of patience, love and experience to coax him out of his kennel each day so that he could enjoy playing…

Liam is Safe!

Liam Last month we received a few emails about an adult GSP picked up as a stray and taken to an LA shelter. We didn’t waste any time finding out more about this boy knowing adult GSPs don’t get a lot of attention at the shelters. Once we received word when he would be available, we started planning on transport.

Transport can often be tedious to plan as there are so may unknowns. Fortunately,…

Yikes aka Jax Commercial!

Yikes (2)Jax was renamed Yikes when adopted.  This fit his wild and crazy Pointing Griffon personality.  He has been with Amie for a few years now and has finally made it to the big time.  Amie reports that it is surprisingly easy to train a dog his age and he’s now a star in a Motorola commercial.  We hope you’ll enjoy Yikes’ debut commercial video and the enjoyment and care he now receives in his…
