Gracie is Adopted!

Gracie Gary Skye DSC_4412w64Skye and Gary were considering contacting us to adopt a companion for their male GSP.  Sadly out of the blue, he became sick, and was diagnosed with cancer and passed away shortly after.  They rescued their GSP, after he was abandoned in the woods, loved him and made him a treasured member of their family.  As you can imagine, losing him broke their hearts.  They wanted to wait a while, but the…

Meet Olive!

Olive  dsc_5641 w64Olive is a very petite 7-8 year old liver female German Shorthaired Pointer that is just as sweet as can be.

This beautiful girl was picked up as a stray, and taken to a local shelter where she waited for her owners to claim her, but they never came.  Once her hold was up, we picked up Olive and brought her to safety at the rescue.  When Olive came to us, she had a bad ear infection that appeared…

Brownie is Adopted!

AlthBrownie Jeff Luke ough 7 isn’t very old in GSP years, it is older than most adopters are looking for when they apply. Jeff,  however, was more interested in a personality fit than an age, and Brownie seemed perfect for him.

As a friend of one of our volunteers, he had also seen just how active any aged GSP can be!  He was looking for a dog comfortable with running by his bike (his transportation to work) and…

Cappy Is Quite Comfortable

IMAG0160We recently received an update on Cappy, and it appears he has made himself right at home.

“Hard to believe that it has been just over 1 month since Cappy came to live with us!  He believes in the highest level of comfort.  He is either curled up in a chair in my office, or he is outside ‘pointing’ at everything!  He fascinates my other dogs who will sit for hours watching him run & point!

Anyway…

Hoss is Adopted!

Lefty aka Hoss Dev Heather Heather has had a GSP mix in the past and knew how well mannered a GSP mix can be.  She personally has seen the benefit of an active dog getting the training and exercise to keep both mind and body busy.  She already planned to get Hoss (now Captain) into agility training before even taking him home.

She and her husband made a long trip down to the rescue to meet Captain and excitedly took their…

Olive is Safe!

Olive A603428We’ve mentioned in a few recent posts that the California GSP Rescue doesn’t shy away from GSPs at the shelter needing medical attention like Roger Dog, or because of age like recently rescued adult GSP, Olive.

Olive showed up as a stray at a Southern California shelter that we monitor on a regular basis, with the help of volunteers. Volunteer Teri visited her at the shelter during her holding…

Zulu is Adopted!

WheZulun Dwylene contacted us about adopting another GSP, she wasn’t quite sure her current dog Jake would do well with an addition.  We told her, if she was patient and worked with us, we thought we could find the right fit. We appreciate Dwylene and Gary’s faith in us, because, with time and patience, we found just the right dog for them.

After the first few weeks in their home, Dwylene sent us…
