I’m Coco and I’m 2 years old and being fostered in North Carolina right how – but I’m happy to move within the southeast region for the right family.
I came into Rescue after my original owner said I couldn’t hunt and was too dominant. I do hunt though; hunting squirrels is one of my all time favorite activities. And I’ve worked really hard on my dominant personality. While in Rescue, I’ve spent several weeks with my trainer (he’s also my foster dad) to help me improve my socialization and learned more doggy manners. Not to brag, but I’ve improved so much from the time I was brought in. With that being said, I would still very much prefer a forever home where I am the king of the castle.
I’m a typical young, male GSP, so I understandably will need lots of exercise and attention to stay being the very best boy I can be. A large, fenced yard would be ideal so I can run and search for squirrels then RUN some more. The fence is handy since I’m still very much a puppy, and you’ll need to work on my recall and leash skills still.
I also crave attention from all my humans and will become your best friend quickly. I am a typical Velcro dog so a family that is home a good bit of the time to give me the attention I need (and deserve) would be very much appreciated. If you have small humans, I’m very gentle around them, small or medium or large, I love all humans especially if they’ll play with me and make me the center of attention. My foster dad recommends bigger humans so I don’t accidentally knock the tiny ones down with my exuberance, but it all depends on how well supervised we are – I do “try” to be very gentle.
Not to sound too conceited but I am very smart and learn quickly so my forever home will need to keep me interested and challenged to help me avoid getting into trouble. My leash manners still need some practice since I just get so excited with ALL THE THINGS.
In summary, I would love a family that wants to be my best buddy and spend lots of time with me. I’d really love a family that can take me along on your adventures – I’m a great car rider! I have no fear of new situations and I just really love to go wherever my humans are! I would like an adopter that appreciates my yard protection qualities to keep those pesky, annoying squirrels at bay. My favorite thing to do is run and play and then come inside to cuddle with my humans. Bottom line I just love doing whatever my humans are doing.
If it sounds like I’m a match for you, please complete an adoption application (if you haven’t already) and email the NC/SC Coordinator Kristin.
Almost forgot, my adoption fee is $375 since I’m fully vetted, microchipped, neutered crate-trained, house-trained and temperament tested and just an all-around awesome dude.
Hi there folks, my name is Louie and I’m searching for my forever home. I’m “very” handsome, VERY energetic and definitely a playful one year old.
I get along great with other dogs so having a sister or brother would be awesome. I’m currently living with 3 GSPs, two aunts and an uncle and have a great life. I have also been to Doggy Day Care and I absolutely love having other dogs around to play with.
I would really like a large fenced yard so I can let off some of my crazy energy. I must have a family where someone is willing to throw toys several times a day for me to chase. It’s my favorite game and I really don’t want to give it up. Please?
Although I love humans, small ones might get knocked over accidentally with all my enthusiasm for life, but bigger humans are great – love my humans! The perfect home for me would be a family that is very active. If you work from home that’s even better…or if you can take me to work – yippee! That would be just perfect since I can’t handle crating for long hours! I can handle a few hours but only if I have my canine siblings nearby to help remind me that you’re coming home.
I’m super smart and because of that I need mental stimulation and training that gives me a job. I love water and chasing toys so dock diving might be a fun job for me (and great exercise to wear me out). Or agility and fly ball are other options for me. I really want a family that will continue my obedience training – that’s really important so I don’t forget what I’ve been taught. My foster mom says consistency is critical to my success (whatever that means). She says that it makes me use my smart brain to solve problems and work on increasing my impulse control. Again, big words, but she’s a smart lady so she has to be right.
Not to brag, but I know a lot of commands like “sit, wait, lay down, spin, sit up, in the house, inside”. I can even use the bells on my doorknob to ask to go out. And even though I can do that, I’ve prefer to have a doggy door – those are so cool and it gives me some freedom.
Finally, and most important, I love to lay at your feet and love to fall asleep in your lap. I really do love my humans. I promise to cuddle with you in your bed if let me (it’s good therapy…really, it is). If you think I’m perfect for your family please complete an adoption application (if you haven’t already) and email my awesome foster mom Kathy and she’ll tell you all about me. Hopefully we can meet and it will be perfect.
Oh yeah, my adoption fee is $375. I tried to get them to make it five million dollars but they said although I’m worth that much, it’s a bit high for more people. I’m completely vetted, neutered and temperament tested. Trust me, it’s a bargain.
