In Memory of
our beloved GSPs
Sweet Hope came to rescue at 8 weeks old in November 2020. She had been taken to a North Carolina shelter by a breeder due to a congenital neurological condition. Sadly, after 6 months of therapy and evaluation by specialists, it was determined that her neurological challenges were not surgically correctable.
We are forever grateful to everyone who cared for Hope during her short life…the Germantown Humane Society who took such good care of her at the shelter and contacted SEGSP, her first foster parents Sarah and Andrew and then her second foster mom Tracy. From Tracy, “I miss her a great deal and am ok with her name standing strong.”
We will always be thankful for the love and care that all of these people showed Hope during her short life. Her name was so appropriate… she gave all of us hope, and regardless of all her struggles, she was still able to give us many moments of joy. There is no doubt she is at the Rainbow Bridge with all who have passed before her – running, playing and enjoying it all like a normal puppy.

Sweet Carter came to rescue in 2009, before the start of our database, so we have no information about his past life. However, as with our other rescued GSPs, we’ve learned that their past is not important. It’s their life after they are rescued that counts – and Carter had an awesome one!
Carter’s SEGSP alum sibling, Su Su, passed away last year, and Carter was actually older than him. We are sure that Su Su greeted Carter at the Rainbow Bridge and they are both happy and playing pain-free. Our hearts go out to the Priesing family…it is always, no matter how prepared you think you are, devastating to say farewell to a loved family member.
