You all saw the call, and boy did you answer! Our hearts are so happy with all the alumni updates we received this week. The most fulfilling part to our volunteers and fosters is hearing updates about dogs that have been adopted to their forever family. Thank you for sharing.
"That looks yummy, I has some?" Remington (Remi) was adopted in 2015 and has an amazing life with his family, the Mullen's. They say he is a great dog and have enjoyed all the years they have had him!
"We adopted Hank (formerly Dan, mostly brown head) in the spring 2015 after we lost our previous pointer from New England GSP rescue . We aren’t sure of his age but now he’s somewhere between 9-12 years old. He is a sweet goofy boy who keeps our first ‘baby” GSP Dixie 16 years young! He even tolerates his 2 feline siblings. He still loves to go for walks, chase squirrels and when he’s excited jumps around like a kangaroo. He’s been a great addition to our family and we can’t imagine not having our Hankster!"
Thank you Laporte Family for spoiling your pups rotten and sending us such a wonderful update!
Kota was adopted in October 2010 as a rescue from an illegal puppy mill in South Dakota. Beth Harless fostered him & felt he’d be a good fit for the Barker Family. According to mom, Lauren, "He was our 7th foster dog and never left!"
We are told Kota enjoys being on a comfortable dog bed, napping, warm spots to sun bathe, being around his people and daily 1-2 mile jogs, even as a 13 year old! Kota is a dream dog and is an ambassador for SEGSP rescue everywhere he goes!
Hi mom added, If he could choose he would eat eggs or pizza for every meal! (Me too, Kota, me too!)
"What did you say? I heard treat. Yes, for sure, it was treat!"
This week was Fisher’s first gotcha day. From his mom, Cheyenne, "I cannot believe it has already been a year since we adopted this sweet precious boy. He is so goofy and always keeps us laughing. He is our wild one that keeps us on our toes constantly. You really never know what Fisher may do next. At the end of the day he is all cuddles and snuggles and is extremely attached to my husband. One of the things you hear so often with this breed is that they are eager to please. I have never witnessed a dog more eager to please than Fisher. When you tell him “good boy” he get so excited his tail looks like it is vibrating it starts moving so fast. I just started brushing his teeth a couple of weeks ago. At first he was a bit hesitant and as soon as I told him good boy he was all for it. On the second day he was happy to let me brush them with no hesitation and without a fight. He just recently started to enjoy fetch and he absolutely loves fruit especially watermelon, poles and blueberries but like with most GSPs his favorite food is whatever is on our plate. He is still on the smaller side which means he fits in your lap just fine!"
We hope you enjoyed these updates as much as we did! Please, keep them coming. And stay tuned for the next Sunday Alum Day update!
