Nash has finally found his forever home! His new dad Jerry, who lives near Nash’s foster parents, has been getting to know Nash for a while now and when Jerry pulled up to pick him up, Nash went ballistic. From his foster mom Cheyenne, “I was anticipating his normal excitement when someone comes in the house but this was a whole different level. I rode with Jerry to his house to help contain Nash’s excitement and as soon as Nash got in the backyard with Jerry he was over the top excited all over again. He has gotten so attached to him in such a short period of time. It makes me so happy. Jerry said it really only took him a couple of days to settle in and get past the anxiousness. He’s still learning the dos and don’ts in a new house but overall is doing really really well and they’ve gotten into a good routine. … I love my dogs more than anything in the world and my entire life revolves around them to the point that people think I’m crazy but there was just something so special about Nash. At the end of the day I think he landed right where he was meant to be.
And Cheyenne’s comments about fostering… “Fostering is so much different than I expected… so much more meaningful and emotionally so much tougher… but so incredibly worth it. We got the email to foster Moose not long after we signed up and I remember calling my husband so excited and I told him we had to foster him because we may never get another chance to foster again. I never could have imagined how big the need was.”
Thank you Cheyenne and Joshua – you were just what Nash needed and we’re excited that you’ll be able to see Nash from time to time. We look forward to updates. Congrats Jerry and Nash!
It’s hard for Dudley’s foster mom to get him to stand still long enough to take a photo, but she finally succeeded! And he has BIG news…he loves his foster family so much that he is staying right where he is
From his mom Katie, “I’m a total foster fell and am in love with him! He’s 100% done with treatment and goes back in October for one final scan! His name is now officially Dudley Do Right LOL!! And our other pointer is in love with him!”
Congratulations Katie, Tom and Dudley!
After carefully reviewing dozens of applicants, Winnie, one of our puppies from the hoarding case earlier this year, has made her choice for her forever home with the Furr family.
From Winnie’s new mom, “We have had a great first weekend with Winnie! Everyone is adjusting well. She had a blast playing with our son outside with the water. She is so sweet and snuggly (after getting all that puppy energy out of course)! We are so thankful to have been picked as Winnie’s forever family. We knew we had to apply for her the moment we saw her adoption picture. We have one 11-year-old GSP already and they are truly a special breed. We knew we wanted to get another one when it came time to grow our family and find the dog our six-year-old son would grow up with. SEGSP Rescue has been wonderful through the whole process from communication, coordination and the care they have for their dogs. I am so glad we are now officially part of the SEGSP family”
Winnie, it looks like you are fitting right in. And we know your big sis, Edy, is going to enjoy showing you the ropes. We are so excited for Winnie and are so grateful to the Haynes family for fostering her and loving her these last few months.”

Cash, one of our 10 puppies, has found his forever home and celebrated with a fun day at the pool! A huge thank you to Cash’s foster parents, Marjie and Richard, for preparing Cash for this day.
And congratulations to Cash and the Freeman family!
Glen, one of the 10 puppies from the hoarding case, has decided he really loves it right where he is…with his foster, now forever, family! And what better way to celebrate, then with a little ice cream.
Congrats to Marjie, Richard and Glen (now named Bobby G)!
Tempo, now Tempi, one of the TN puppies, has found her forever home!
From her foster mom Vicki, “If you don’t believe things happen for a reason, you are about to. Tempo aka Tempi came to stay with me temporarily but once she arrived the rescue decided she could use some more socializing so I began her training. She was so fragile and terrified of the world so we exposed her to everything we could and put her on a high protein diet and she flourished. A couple of weeks and she was already ready to find her forever home. I received an email from one of the volunteers that helped transport Tempi and her sister to their first foster home. They wanted to keep Tempi then but were still grieving the loss of their Senior GSP and knew in their hearts they couldn’t give Tempi what she needed at that time. So, when Tempi came back up for adoption it was fate and they immediately sent me an email. I knew right away that someone that is willing to put a puppy’s needs before their own like Beth did the first time she met this tiny blue eyed baby was exactly where Tempi deserved to be. She deserves parents that put her above all else because this little girl has already lived a tough life. Tempi and I set off on a rainy Sunday to meet her new mom, who didn’t think twice about driving from TN to get this little girl once again, but this time it’s her last transport because she has finally found home. I can’t even explain in words how Tempi is going to change their lives forever because this little girl is pure happiness and fun. Life will always bring us just what we need in the exact moment we need it and this is the perfect example. We love you Tempi and you go and rule the world little girl because you see the strongest little girl I know.”
Congrats to Tempi and his new family Beth and Tanner…and thank you to her foster moms, Tonya, Jill and Vicki, for helping Tempi along her journey!
Tucker (TN) has important news to share! He has chosen his forever home and it's right where he has been, with his foster family!
Tucker’s dad is a SEGSP volunteer who originally transported Tucker and 9 other puppies from the hoarding situation. From the moment his foster family met him, they knew he would be a perfect addition to their family and they knew he likely wasn’t going anywhere.
Tucker is a handsome boy, is very smart, and is one of the most calm, sweet, and well-behaved puppies his foster family has seen. He even loves the resident cat! Tucker is inseparable from his three human siblings and his four-legged brother, 2020 SEGSP alum George. Tucker loves car rides, swinging outside, shopping for treats, and whole-body tail wags when meeting new friends.
Tucker, we are so happy for you and for your new family. Seems like a perfect match to us!
Maggie Mae, formerly Cherry, has found her forever home and is on her way to Florida to live her very best life. Her new family threw a party to welcome Maggie into their family, which they had kept a secret. Maggie’s foster mom Vicki searched through so many amazing applications, but when she found “the one” she knew it in her heart and soul and said “her heart is as full as a heart could be.” THANK YOU Vicki! And, get your tissues out, Vicki wrote this beautiful letter to Maggie:
Dear Maggie Mae, I did not drop you off today because I don’t love you but because I know you were meant for so much more than a selfish ladies companion. The moment I picked you up and held you in my arms I knew exactly where you belonged and I would have gone to the ends of the earth to find that for you. Lucky for the both of us we just had to go to Florida. The most perfect two people asked about you and the email your new mommy Cassie sent me gave me goosebumps. You left me today in a car with two of the most kind hearted selfless people I’ve ever met and if you could have seen the way they looked at you, the way they immediately fell in love with you, you would understand why I was smiling. I don’t smile because you’re leaving, I smile because the amazing journey that is now your life has begun. As a therapy dog you are going to touch so many lives, put so many smiles on the faces of children that are struggling to find reasons to smile and bring joy to those that struggle to find it. You Maggie Mae are exactly where you belong and I am beyond thankful that I got to be a part of getting you there. Because of you I will never stop fostering, because of you I understand why fostering is so rewarding and because of you I will never stop raising awareness for all canines. Don’t be sad for leaving, be excited for this new journey with your wonderful new parents Casie & Sean and your sweet new canine siblings Kimbee & Kenobi. Go out there and show the world just how spectacular a rescue dog can be, sweet girl.
Boone is officially a Crosby!
From Marion, “When we got to his new home, he ran around the yard and gave everything a good once over before meeting his new doggy sister Sadie! They hit it off immediately and played together so well. Fred and Mary are so sweet and are ready to give Boone the best life. He’s already got a new collar to show off his new last name. It’s bittersweet to let him go but Matt and I feel so much peace knowing he’s going to be adored by his new family.”
From his new family, “When we decided it was time for another GSP we started to look for a rescue from SEGSP rescue. We wanted to help a dog rather than get another puppy. In finding Boone we have found everything we were looking for. Sadie found her forever partner in crime with Boone. We couldn’t be happier that Sadie (our 2 yr old lab) has someone to help her dig holes in the backyard, swim in the Marsh and chase birds on the Beach, and of course chewing up their toys in the house!”
Thank you Marion (in yellow) who reviewed many applicants and narrowed it down to the Crosby family. They took the time to make sure it was a perfect fit for Boone’s needs. Congrats everyone!
