Zeus


Meet our graduate!  Zeus completed a 4 week board and train, he is remote collar trained and fantastic off leash (though he needs to get to know a new owner).  He knows sit, stay, heel, come, down and place.  He is 6 yrs old, neutered, and a super handsome GSP.  He is house and crate trained, though doesn't need crated when alone at home as he is not destructive.  He is fully vaccinated and microchipped.  


Once Zeus knows you he loves you and you are in "the circle of trust", a friend forever.  He needs a few minutes to adjust to new people.  Zeus looks for no adversity, but he needs to know you when you come into his space, whether you are a person or dog.  He needs an owner who is a leader, someone who tells him what his decisions should be.


He is quite simply a fantastic dog, if you are an active person he will be wonderful addition.  He loves to hike, swim and do pretty much any activity that entails the outdoors.  He is a fetch maniac.  When you toss the ball with a chuck-it its like he has been shot out of a cannon.  He is fast and he is dedicated.  Zeus simply loves being outside doing activities.


The trainer has offered to meet with anyone who adopts him to go over his commands and explain what Zeus knows.  We are seeking a no child, no dog home for Zeus.  He has in the past lived with another dog, but it would take some time and dedication since he has been an only dog for several years at this point.  So for his happiness we want a home that is just looking for one fantastic dog, or a new owner that has obedience experience to introduce and manage.


Zeus needs a job and loves to be doing something and as we all know, a tired dog is a happy dog.  If that is you, pls fill out our Application above and we will give you a call.  Address any additional questions to faithgsp@yahoo.com

Farley


Farley is a neutered male GSP weighing approximately 45lbs. Farley was surrendered to the shelter by his owner when they lost their housing.


Farley is a very sweet boy. He is good with kids, but we think he would do better with older kids as loud noises and fast movements can make him nervous. He has quickly bonded with his foster dad.


Farley is good with other dogs. He has not been tested with cats. Farley is housebroken and crate trained, but is currently being left free for short stints without any issues. Farley is good in 4ft fencing and does enjoy car rides. He is quite snuggly!


Farley is currently near Nokesville, VA. If you are interested in adopting Farley, please fill out an adoption application.

Anne


Anne is a precious 1 year old female GSP. She is a petite girl, weighing in at 43lbs. Anne was found of a stray, but she is just an absolute sweetheart. The day we sprung her from the shelter she jumped in her foster mom's car and kissed the tiny human in the car seat as if she had known her all her life.


Anne is wonderful with kids and dogs. She currently lives with two of each. She is very friendly when meeting strangers and loves when the neighborhood kids come over to play, even better when they bring their canine friends. She has not been tested with cats, but she is quite prey-driven with squirrels. She loves to play fetch with her humans, or chase with her canine siblings.


Anne is almost 100% house broken. She is learning her leash skills and basic obedience. She currently likes to bark in greeting at everyone she meets on a walk, but she is just so happy to say hello! She is learning fast and is a very quick study! She is crated when her foster family is out and settles quite easily. She loves the car, but does need to work on staying in her own seat and not the driver's lap!


Anne is currently in Severna Park, MD. If you are interested in adopting please fill out an Adoption Application.

The dogs listed below are not in our program but are in need of a home. Please reach out to the contact listed in the dog's bio!

River


River is a sweet GSP-mix at the Humane Shelter of Charles County, in Charles County, MD. She is 6 years old and weighs 51lbs. She is spayed and up to date on her shots. 

River is affectionate when comfortable with people, housebroken, crate trained, very playful, and listens well in the home and yard. She is VERY smart.  High energy girl who would benefit from large fenced yard.  She is heartworm negative and UTD on all her shots.  She is on heartworm and flea & tick preventative.

She would be a GREAT RUNNING BUDDY. She is a very pretty girl with a bit of an independent streak, but does enjoy a good scratch and a belly rub. She may repay you with a big kiss! 

If you are interested in meeting River, please fill out an adoption application above. Rescue will be evaluating River with a rescue trainer on 12/19, so more information will follow.

Evaluation:  After about 90 minutes of training River was walking beautifully on leash right by the handler's side.  She can be nervous and cautious around other dogs.  For her to live with another dog would take someone with dog behavior experience.  River is well managed on a training collar, we do not recommend a harness type collar as it is too hard to manage dogs with those.  Once she was on a training collar and was getting good direction, River was a very quick learner and performing as was expected.  We see a lot of potential in this girl.  She was just so good at learning and following direction, a very smart dog.  If you are interested in her pls fill out our Adoption Application above.

Adopted!

Brutus- Adoption Pending


Brutus is a 6 year old male and is about 55lbs and great with people and other dogs! 


You cannot find a sweeter or more loving dog than Brutus, he is just a nice dog.  He is being fostered with a disabled male GSP and is good with the dog and his challenges.  He knows how to sit and will come when called.


Brutus loves going for walks and is very responsive to leash corrections, a light touch is enough for him. He has just started jogging with his foster, and with a little training he should make a decent running buddy. Brutus has some prey drive and should not live with cats. Brutus is crate trained and housebroken.


He loves running around the yard and hunting for critters.  He went to our fundraiser event at the winery and was good with all the people and dogs.  Brutus doesn't know a stranger.  He has a perfect temperament, nothing not to like about Brutus.


Brutus is currently in Easton, MD!  If interested, please fill out an adoption application.

Echo- Adoption Pending


Echo is a one year old spayed female weighing approximately 45lbs. Echo is in need of a new home as she is too energetic for her current family. They love her very much but are unable to keep up with her energy.


Echo is good with kids and other dogs. She lives with a cat and is okay. She will chase and pounce on the cat but she hasn't tried to hurt him. She would need to be tested with any new cats though. Echo is housebroken and crate trained. She is not used to being crated for more than 3 hours at a time and goes to doggy daycare if her family is out of the house for the day.


Echo is a digger and a fence jumper, so she needs to be watched when outside. She needs 6ft or electric fencing. Echo has gone through 2 weeks of basic obedience and knows sit, come, stay, place, spin, and roll over. She does need help with her leash walking and is currently walked on a prong collar. Echo loves to swim and has a pool at her house!


Echo is currently in Whitehall, MD. If she interests you, please fill out an application.

Max- Adopted


Max is an 8 yr old handsome liver male weighing about 70lbs. Max is neutered and up to date on vaccinations. Max is in need of a new homes. as his farm got chickens, and let's just say Max and the livestock guard dogs have a difference of opinion on chicken care.


Max is a very sweet and active boy! Max loves all people and gets very excited when visitors come over. He has not been tested around kids, but we think he would do fine. Max is doing well with his two foster siblings (one male, and one female) but he does need to be fed separately. He has no issues with people around his food! Max should not live with cats.  


Max is currently near Middletown, VA. If you are interested in Max please fill out an adoption application!

Chase - adopted


Chase is a 5 month old male GSP weighing 29 lbs.  He is neutered and utd on all his vaccines.  


He is friendly with other dogs, but could be in a home by himself also.  He loves to chase a ball and run around in his yard.  He knows a dog door and can let himself outside if needed, but he is learning to ring a bell to let his foster people know he needs to go outside.


He loves to lay in your lap which is easy at this point because he is little.  He loves people.  He is currently being fostered with another GSP and playing "catch me if you can" is great fun..  He loves going to parks and other places but will need taught some structure with the leash.  He doesn't just wag his tail, his whole body wags, he is such a happy, happy dog.


He is crate trained though he will cry for a few minutes when you first leave him.  His foster puts a kong filled with peanut butter and treats in the crate with him which solves all the crying.  This is just a sweet, sweet puppy who needs someone who will give him structure and love.  Chase is being fostered near Frederick, MD, pls fill out the Application if he interests you.
