Congratulations to Quin on finding her forever family! From her foster mom Vicki, “ My heart is so full right now and although I’m bawling my eyes out I know by the look on this sweet girl’s face as she looks up and smiles at her new mom and dad that it was all worth it. Quin has touched so many lives, as there were several volunteers involved in her rescue, fostering and training, all of which made this moment possible. I could not have found a more loving, patient, understanding and active family than these two beautiful people. This is the hardest part of being a foster but as I snuck out the front door because I couldn’t bear the goodbye look I just told myself, ‘We are family now, part of an amazing village built on the love of a GSP.’” Quin can look forward to a life full of hiking, biking and lots of fetch in her new huge backyard…plus plenty of love and spoiling.
Quin’s journey to her new forever family has been a bit longer than most due to her very specific needs in her adoptive family. Southeast GSP Rescue is committed to giving as many GSP’s as possible their best life and we have valuable volunteers who are willing to work months with a dog to make this happen. From the early days of learning a dog to the search for the perfect family that will help the dog thrive, our volunteers are dedicated to each pup. Quin was lucky to have Vicki, a valued foster volunteer and dog trainer, to learn Quin’s quirks and fears and help Quin learn to trust humans to the best of her ability. When the Tully’s reached out to Vicki about her other foster dog, Gunner, Vicki knew they were perfect for Quin. They have experience with dogs with the specific needs Quin has and live close enough to Vicki to continue Quin’s training. We are so happy that Vicki found the Tully’s for Quin, they are exactly what she needs to live her best GSP life!
