In Memory of
our beloved GSPs
A sad announcement on a Monday morning…our 2014 alumnus Finn, formerly Vincent, has passed away. Finn and his brother Victor were pulled from a shelter in NC and had lived outside until their owner surrendered them. Both were ill and sadly, Victor didn’t make it, but Finn survived his heartworm treatment with the help of his foster family. It was a rough beginning and a huge adjustment for Finn without his brother. But his life completely changed when he was adopted by the Hubbell family.
His mom Marcy said, “Last night's sunset was proof Finn had a glorious arrival at the rainbow bridge. I know he was met by many of his friends who made the journey before him. Although I know he is no longer struggling or in pain; he will be deeply missed! Finner Chicken Dinner joined us over 10 years ago as our first German shorthair through Southeast GSP Rescue. He was a great foster brother to over 20 dogs. He was the most untrainable dog I've ever owned yet made the best adventure partner as I was never far from sight, and he had an amazing ability to know direction. He had very few needs in life, but those he had were strong: balls to chase, food to be served on time, the need to be warm and love from his mama. I know he had a ton of friends throughout his time with us and I'm thankful for all the love and support. Whole Pet Veterinary Hospital Davidson, Mountain Island and Pineville & Dr Julie the chiropractor have done a fantastic job keeping him going over the past year. I am so very thankful for the compassion and support of Dr Million, Megan and Jenna to help make Finn's journey so peaceful. Until we meet again my sweet boy, I love you.”
We’ve shared so many photos of Finn in past posts and they always make us smile. He was so loved and treasured by his family, and we feel blessed to have had a small role in his journey…
