Some photos SCREAM of happiness and we LOVE this one! Maggie (formerly Blair) has truly found her forever home with her new mom Sophie. Maggie is smiling not only because she found an amazing forever mom, but she also has a wonderful forever grandmother who has a farm she can explore.
In August of 2022 our GA volunteers pulled Maggie from a shelter on VERY short notice and kept her from being euthanized the same day. She no doubt had a rough life and came to rescue battling intestinal worms, heartworms, and a skin condition. Based on her worn-down front teeth we believe she may have spent years confined to a cage, persistently trying to break free. We estimate her age at about 10 years old, and she has had multiple litters.
But that life is now behind her and she is SUPER happy and looking forward to a life of love and adventures. Thank you to her awesome foster mom Holly for helping Maggie along her journey.
Gunnar (right) has found his forever home – right where he was with his foster family!
His new mom said, “We went to Hendersonville for the weekend. Rented a little cabin with acres to run and a pond to play in. Went to a restaurant where chickens freely walk around. Gunnar had no clue what to think about those things!! Gunnar is still my little sidekick. He still drives his big brother Ballard crazy as well as the cat, Bubs. Gunnar knows his place in the pecking order so it all works. Watching him grow and learn has just been a joy. He is most himself in the woods chasing squirrels and birds. I've never seen a puppy run as fast as he does leaping so effortlessly through the brush and over fallen trees. The woods are his second favorite place aside from being snuggled up on the couch with his Mom and Dad. We adore him!!”
Congrats to Mike, Heidi, Ballard and Gunnar!
Gus is HOME! Congratulations to Gus and the Cochran family on their adoption of this sweet boy. Gus came into rescue with his 7 siblings and is the last, but not least, in finding this forever home. From the Cochran family “We love him so much and he is the perfect fit for our family.”
Thank you to his foster mom Sarah for helping Gus along his rescue journey. What a great way to start the week.
Ellie (on right) has found her home! Her foster dad Norm said Ellie hit the jackpot and her new family is amazing with huge hearts and a love of dogs. And she has a new canine sister, Panda, too. Ellie was so happy to see them and couldn’t wait to go home with them.
Thank you, Norm, for helping Ellie along her path and finding the right home for her. And congratulations to Ellie, Heather, Gregg, and Panda!
After evaluating lots of amazing families, Scarlett has picked her forever home with the Shelleys! She has also picked a new name, Maggie!
The family lost their sweet Bella in March, and Winston, their Weimaraner, had been missing a friend. They had been following the rescue’s page and when Scarlett was ready to start searching for her forever home, they decided to apply. And they were selected. Once they heard the good news, they said, “We are honored to be chosen! We cannot wait to be part of the GSP community!” They now plan to become volunteers with SEGSP and we are happy to have them!
Maggie has already gone for her first swim, enjoys hanging out on the back porch with the family and is going on lots of pack walks to bond with Winston while he continues to get used to having a puppy around.
Congratulations to the Shelley family and thank you so much to Laura, who fostered Scarlett, a big feat with a puppy, and for helping prepare her for this next step. We couldn’t do what we do without our foster families.
Spot (TN) has chosen his forever home and he couldn’t be more excited! In addition to awesome parents and two four legged siblings, he has a nine-year-old brother, Caden, that he will get to grow up with. And we think they are both already smitten with each other by the look of these pics.
Spot had so many great applicants, and while the choice was hard, the Schmidt family seemed like the perfect fit for him. Special thanks to his foster mom, Gigi, for all her work with fostering a puppy and for the difficult task of vetting applicants for his adoption. Gigi has fostered several dogs for the rescue, and we couldn’t be more grateful.
Odin has found it – his FOREVER home! He may have failed at hunting in his prior life, but family life is much better for this sensitive, loving guy. A huge thank you to his foster mom Kathy for going through so many excellent applications and finding the right home for Odin.
Congratulations Odin, Hannah and Grant (and canine siblings Cash and Maggie)!
The rumor has been confirmed…Strider is officially a foster failure. Yay Strider! A big congratulations to the Mikeal family. Pictured below is Hayes (lower left) and the family dog whisperer, Hudson (lower right), Justin and Jessica and canine sibling Bela.
Congratulations on the happy occasion and we can’t wait to see more updates of sweet Strider in our alumni webpage.
