On Christmas morning, Gretta and her foster brother Woody (2015 alum) greeted their mom…
Merry Christmas!! It was a little chilly this morning, so we had to put on our Christmas jammies! From Woody, “I’ve been a good boy all year so I asked Santa for a sister.” How could his mom Kacey say no to that face?!? From Kacey, “So I guess we are foster fails :-)”
From Kacey, “Thank you for all that you do for the GSP’s in the south! We have been blessed with 2 amazing dogs thanks to you!”
The adoption is now final and Gretta is HOME! Congratulations to Gretta and the Matthews family…and Happy New Year!
Palmer (now Dug)
Palmer (GA) has some exciting news… he’s done so well and his foster family loved having him so much (including his canine foster siblings), that they are going to adopt him. And his new name is Dug, because his personality reminds his family of the dog character named Dug from the movie 'Up'.
CONGRATS Dug! And Congrats to the Waldner family! It’s going to be an amazing 2022 at the Waldner home
Rock (now Doc Ford)
Rock (TN) has found his forever family! He went home Monday and with his new mom Grace and he also has a new name, Doc Ford!
From Grace, “We are so excited to welcome Doc Ford (formerly Rock) into our family. We had a great experience with SEGSP and our guy’s foster parents. Everyone has been so helpful throughout the process. Doc Ford and Reggie (our 3-year-old vizsla) have been playing almost non-stop since we got him! They are inseparable.”
We can’t wait to follow the adventures of Reggie and Doc Ford! Congratulations to Doc and his new family, and thanks so much to his foster family, the Blanscetts, for taking such great care of him and choosing his perfect forever home!
Buddy (SC) has found his forever home! Congratulations to Buddy and the Sparks family! They said the addition of Buddy has made them "feel like a kid on Christmas Eve."
A big thank you to Lisa and her husband Elisha (pictured on right) for fostering this sweet boy. Buddy was found on the streets of North Carolina and Lisa and Elisha had their hands full with giving Buddy lessons in basic training and lots of love (he was a little shy with new people and places). And they did an amazing job!
Hank L had a family meeting with his foster family and well, they’ve all decided that he is not going anywhere.
From His foster mom, Rebecca: “From the moment I saw Hank, I knew he would be a good fit in our home. The first time he came in, he jumped on the couch and sat down. When I sat next to him, he got up and sat on me. He loves to sit in the chair on my husband. Hank also likes to take us for nice long walks. Upon return, he likes to have a homemade doggie treat. He is a friendly dog and likes all the neighbors. He can't wait to meet his doggy cousin, Bodie.”
Sounds like Hank is the perfect fit for the Schaafs. Special thanks to his former foster, Dannie, and for the Schaafs for taking such great care of him. We can’t wait for updates with his new cousin, Bodie!
We have some exciting news. Maggie May has decided that she loves her foster family so much that she’s asked if she can stay there forever. And they said yes!
From her foster mom: “ Maggie May is a sweet lovable girl. We had not planned to adopt and I tried talking myself out of it with everything going on this season, but day in and day out her love just tugged a little more at my heart. And after Thanksgiving it was about time to post her for adoption and I couldn’t come up with thoughts for her bio because anything I’d write I knew someone would want her and then I had to give her up. So, as a family, we all agreed she was part of the family and not going anywhere. Every morning, we wake up to snuggles and kisses and every night we spend 5 minutes saying good night. She’s a mess from barking at cats to 5 mins later sleeping on the couch in whatever position she wants, to climbing dog gates or kennels, but we wouldn’t trade any of that because she is exactly where she belongs and we love her so much.”
It sounds like Maggie May is exactly where she belongs and we couldn’t be happier for her or for the Robinson family.
Kirk, who was fostering Gunner in SC, had every intention of finding a wonderful family for Gunner. However..this photo and those 3 people and one dog convinced him otherwise.
Congrats to the Kirk family (and Gunner)! It’s another happy foster fail
Ranger’s Christmas wish for a forever family has come true! He’s been adopted by the Hancock family and went to his new home on Friday.
When Ranger arrived at his home, he immediately found the toy stash and made himself at home on the couch. His new mom said the first night went great. He watched a movie with them - really paid attention to the screen - slept on the bed - walked the property with them the next morning after breakfast, and then tested out all the chew toys. Later that day, they all went on a hike and then a run with his mom later. His mom says he is fantastic! He did not pull on the lead at all on the run. He and his brother Jax are eating at the same time about 6 feet away from each other and all is well.
Jax is enjoying showing Ranger the ropes and we think he is going to be an awesome big brother! We are so happy for Ranger and for the Hancock family. And we are super grateful to his foster dad, Tomas, who did an amazing job as Ranger’s foster dad but also in selecting the perfect family for him among some amazing other applicants – we know he spent countless hours making the decision.
We can’t wait for more updates from this special boy.
