Dixie


Rescue desperately needs a foster home w/o other dogs for Dixie.  Pls contact us if you can help at [email protected]


Dixie is a sweet-as-pie spayed 3 year old female GSP. She is a trim 59 lbs and is in very good health.

She is utd on vaccinations.

Dixie likes her lovin’. She is very affectionate and likes to snuggle with both people and her brothers.
She is house trained, crate trained, and walks nicely on a leash. She knows “sit”, but would definitely benefit from some obedience classes. She takes treats from the hand like a lady and seems to be comfortable around most everyone she’s met.  Dixie is a great and loving dog and prefers a new home by herself.  You won;t find a more lovable little girl.

Rosie

Rosie is a 4 year-old, 65 pound sweetheart.  UPD on all vaccines and housebroken, she was surrendered from her owner because he got a new job and doesn't have the time that she deserves. 

She immediately felt at home with her new foster family and will have no trouble with her new permanent home.   Affectionate and sweet, Rosie craves being with people -- the ultimate velcro dog. 

She's great on a leash and enjoys walks and investigating the back yard.  Rosie is great with kids and other dogs.  We don't know what she thinks about cats. 

She is currently in a yard with 4' fencing and is doing just fine in that.  She is being fostered in Silver Spring, MD.  Pls email us at faithgsp@yahoo.com for any questions.

Charlie


Charlie is a 5 yr old male neutered Pointer.  He is house and crate trained.  Charlie was born blind in his left eye.  Rescue has an appt with a doggie ophthalmologist to take a look at Charlie's eyes.


Rescue will be getting Charlie's vaccines updated and he will also be microchipped.


He gets along with other dogs and has lived in a home with a cat.  He has lived with children, and is very good with kids.  Charlie is so friendly, playful and affectionate! He loves attention! We see him doing very well in an active home, maybe with children, where he will be an indoor dog, and be very much a part of his family. Charlie travels wonderfully well in the car, he lays right down and is quiet as a mouse.


Charlie loves toys, and does very well with cloth, floppy toys that he can see well.  Charlie was turned into Rescue as his owner was diagnosed with a serious medical issue.  He is a sweet boy who just wants a place to call home.


Charlie is being fostered in Front Royal, VA.  Pls email us at [email protected] if you have any questions about Charlie.



Rascal - courtesy listing for PAW Rescue

Rascal is a 1 yo German Shorthaired Pointer mix. After his family was evicted, Rascal found himself struggling at a high kill shelter. PAW picked him up and placed him in a foster home, so that he can start the next chapter in his young life.  He is utd on vaccines and vetting.

Rascal bonds very strongly and quickly to his family! He is housebroken and has generally good house manners. He has a medium amount of energy, which can be satisfied with play or walks. Rascal loves running in his foster family’s fenced yard or wrestling with other dogs. See video on youtube (https://youtu.be/eaWKN0G-Upc) of him playing. He gets along very well with his foster family's small dogs. He also loves dog toys and is a pretty good catcher. He enjoys walks and jogs but will need some basic leash training.

Perhaps because of the ordeal that he went through, Rascal is anxious around strangers and will bark at people he doesn’t know. PAW is working with him on this, but he will need a dog savvy owner who is willing to continue his training. He probably would be best in a mostly adult home. He is initially shy but warms up to affection.

Rascal is very affectionate! He doesn’t always know his size and loves to curl up in your lap. He is also happy to sleep at your feet.

To obtain an adoption application go to http://www.paw-rescue.org/how_app.php and email the completed application to [email protected]  If you are a current applicant with Mid-Atlantic GSP Rescue we will pass any info on to the PAW Rescue.  Pls let us know if Rascal interests you by emailing [email protected] or PAW.
Duke - adopted

Duke is a 4-5 year old neutered male who came to us from a shelter in WV. Duke currently weighs 59lbs, but needs to gain @15 more lbs to be at a correct weight.

Due to his rough start, Duke has not had any formal training, however, he is picking up on the basics with his foster family and would love a family of his own to help him continue learning. Duke is very people focused and will happily stand as close as possible to be pet. Duke needs a home without small children as he is not the most graceful guy and could knock small children down.

Duke is a medium energy dog that loves to explore new areas, but settles quickly in the house. He gets along well with other dogs after he is properly introduced. He has not been tested with cats. While not officially kennel trained, Duke is happy to be lured into the kennel with treats. He then sits quietly in the kennel without barking or trying to break free.
