Sweet Gunner from FL has finally found his forever home! YAY Gunner! This boy has had a tough time adjusting to this very scary big world, but with the help of his foster family, he blossomed and although still frightened of new things, he’s come a very long way. Congratulations to Gunner and the Denise family and a big thank you to his foster mom Linda!
Dixie, in SC, and her foster family have joined the “Foster Fail” club! From her foster-turned-forever mom: She is such a sweet girl. She gets along so well with Boo (16 year old GSP) & Lilly (6 year old Shitzu). They really are quite a crew.
Congratulations to Dixie and the Buckendahl family! What a great way to begin the week and end the year
Max in GA (on right) had a proposition from his foster family. They said…we may not be able to give you the biggest house, but we promise to love you the biggest and best we can. Max didn’t hesitate with his YES! His GSP siblings are super happy too (although one was camera shy). Congratulations to the Futch family, including Max, Mandy, Jake, Turkey, Pig and Trip!
Fritz in SC has found his forever home with the Fabrey family! From his foster dad Darrin: It was so bittersweet to watch him go but we know he is in good hands. He has grown so much while we fostered him and will continue to grow. They will be keeping his name, they once had a Fritz before. We enjoyed the opportunity to help. Thank y’all for helping along the way.
Thank you Darrin for everything you’ve done for Fritz, i.e. the river trips, golf cart rides and allowing him to run, run, run - but most of all for finding his forever family. Fritz is a very lucky boy. Congrats to Fritz and the Fabrey family!
A very happy message from Dirk, now Tag’s family:
“It truly has been an honor to foster Tag and help him get healthy. Tag came into our home just three weeks after our last GSP passed away. It was fast but it felt meant to be. Our family has fallen in love with Tag and we cannot imagine our lives without him! He’s the sweetest, most loving dog we’ve ever had and we are ecstatic to become Tag’s forever family.
We continue to be impressed by SEGSP Rescue. It’s such a great organization with passionate volunteers. We definitely will continue to support this group and help however we can. Thank you! Merritt”
Congratulations Tag, Merritt and David!
Fischer, foster brother to Rio, had a special Christmas wish. He wrote a letter to Santa asking for a little brother. Santa talked it over with Rio’s foster parents, and then delivered this special present a little bit early. Looks like Fischer is getting exactly what he wanted because Rio is staying for good! And his new family, The Walls, couldn’t be happier!
Rio’s new dad says that Rio and Fischer were friends in just a few short hours which was HUGE to them. Even though he’s still a puppy, he’s an old soul, super sweet, gentle, and has a tail wag for everyone he meets. They knew within the first day that he was doomed to be a failed adoption! And there’s one more small announcement, Rio will now be named Jasper, or Jazz, for short. ️
Congratulations all around! We just love good news.
Cricket, who previously lived her life outside in a kennel, has come a long way in a very short time with her two foster families. And she’s settled in so well that we are excited to say that we have another Foster WIN to announce, because her new dad has decided that she’s just gonna stay put where she is. She now has a furever sister, too, Gracie, also a GSP.
When asked what made her dad know that she was family, he said, “She’s a wonderful and loving dog and great companion to my Gracie. She helps motivate me to get up and exercise each morning and they both put a smile on my face. She gets so excited about our golf cart rides. She and Gracie have bonded better than I could have expected. Great match.“
Cricket goes on long walks (on and off leash daily), rides in the golf cart twice a day, and lives on a lake where they go out on the pontoon boat. Her dad has been known to share his sausage and biscuit and his lunch meat with his girls and he hand feeds them a small ice cream treat each night. It’s clear to us that Cricket is right where she belongs and we are so grateful to Randy and Gracie for working so hard with her and for loving her and making her family, and also to the Murphy family for fostering her first and helping her so much! We just love a happy ending!
Tony has had quite the adventure in rescue…lost (or abandoned) in a forest, he found his way to a Good Samaritan who contacted SEGSP then brought to a shelter. He was temp fostered in one home (thank you Tina and Alan), then fostered in another for his heartworm treatment (thank you to the Herndon family), then arrived at his last foster home to find his forever home. Turns out, his last foster home “IS” his forever home! Sometimes the adoption journey is a winding road. We are so happy for Tony, now called Maverick. Congratulations to the Rhoades family and Maverick!
Our coordinators in the Carolinas have A LOT to be thankful for with 3 adoptions in the last week! Berry, now Lexie, has also found her forever home with new dad Darrin and his son. They have a lot of land for Lexie to explore and she is certainly going to be living her best life!
Thank you to Peyton and family for fostering her – it was definitely a bittersweet moment for them!
