Jack is an 11 year old neutered male weighing in at 70lbs. Jack found his way to rescue after being turned into a shelter when his owner could no longer care for him.

Jack loves being with people. He will try to follow his foster mom into the bath! He loves cuddling and playing. Squeaky toys are his favorite, the louder the better! Jack is crate trained and house trained. Jack rides well in the car and loves to go for car rides.

Jack was surrendered with another female pointer but he could be happy as an only dog. Jack walks nicely past other dogs but gets nervous if dogs rush at him. He may be able to live with a less energetic more mature dog after proper introductions. Jack is still very prey-driven from his past hunting days, so he should not live with cats.

Jack is currently in Aylett, VA waiting for his forever home. If you are interested in meeting Jack or learning more, please fill out an application.


Meet Ruger!  He is 10 yrs old, house and crate trained though he does not need crated, he is fine unattended in the home.  He is also utd on vaccines and recently had bloodwork done that came back perfect.

Ruger has had a 2 yr old child move into his home who likes to pull his tail and such.  He is not happy about that and due to this is being separated from the child, causing sadness for his family.  He has an 8 yr old child friend, so is fine with kids, just not toddlers.  But then again, who likes their tail pulled?

He loves to ride in the car and knows sit, stay, and come.  Ruger is still plenty energetic. He loves to swim and run outside but he is calm in the house. He is dog friendly when off leash with others..He has never been tested with cats but you can see from the picture he is fine with small dogs. He is good in 4 ft fencing.  

Ruger is in Fredericksburg, VA.  If you would like to add this sweetie to your home, pls email us at faithgsp@yahoo.com


Juno is an absolute dream of a GSP.  She weighs 47 pounds and is 2 1/2 years old and is UTD on her vaccines.   Juno loves her family and is always very excited to see you when you get home and she has been very lovable around our children, ages 14 and 17. 

Juno is extremely affectionate, obedient , smart and knows several commands, sit, down, off, shake, come and is crate trained.  She is house trained, but we have not left Juno out of the crate when we have been away from home.  Juno is very quiet and rarely barks or fusses.  She is dog friendly, but cats are unknown.  

Juno loves to play fetch and will run and tire herself out. Juno is a wonderful car rider and loves to go along with you.  She sits perfectly in the car as if she is just another passenger and watches out the window.  Juno is food motivated and has been caught trying to counter surf. We have noticed how she can balance on her hind legs very well searching for any food that may be left out so keeping all food put away is recommended. 

Juno is being fostered in the Fredericksburg, VA area. If she interests you please fill out an application!

The dogs below are not part of our program but are looking for their forever home.
Similarly, we have other courtesy listed dogs on our Petfinder page! 


Oliver is a neutered 3 year old English Pointer weighing approximately 50lbs.

Oliver had been in a loving home for a year and a half, but a change of family circumstances led him to be returned to rescue He's learned quite a lot in his time away. He knows some commands which he will happily do for you if you ask.  He definitely wants to be with his people, laying by their side or following from room to room. Oliver is quite smart and eager to learn. Although he is curious and would gladly take off if the fence were any less than intact and sturdy, he's not particularly creative in trying to circumvent his new boundaries. Still, it would be best that he not be left unattended in the yard initially until an owner is certain he is secure in it.

Oliver is on the quiet side. He doesn't bark much at all, leading us to think he might be a good candidate for an apartment/condo dweller if he were allowed to get enough exercise. Do you need a jogging/walking partner? All in all, Oliver is a very nice boy who has learned his household manners and would like to find a new home. Interested in meeting Oliver? Please contact icanhelp@beaglemaryland.org


Harold- Adoption Pending

Harold is an approximately 5 year old neutered male. Harold is a very sweet and intelligence boy who loves to spend time with the family.  He is fairly active, like most GSPs, but he enjoys being inside the house and with people.  He weighs 47lbs and is a little on the smaller side for males.  Harold has a very strong prey drive and he loves to chase squirrels and he is fascinated by butterflies! 

Harold is learning socialization skills and has shown aggression towards other dogs. He loves being around people and really wants to be a good boy! Harold is good in 4 ft fencing and is crate and almost house trained. He spent the majority of his life living outside, and is ready to enjoy the comforts of a loving home. Harold rides well in the car and is practicing his leash skills.

Harold is good with other dogs unless they are too boisterous and in his face. Likewise, he would do best with kids over 10.

Bailey- Adoption Pending

Bailey is an absolutely delightful 10 year old spayed female who is UTD on all vaccines. Weighing in a 75 lbs this sweet girl could lose a few pounds. She is fully hunt, house and crate trained but has no problem hanging out loose in the house all day.

Bailey is very well mannered and gets along great with other dogs, cats and children of all ages. She walks wonderfully on a leash, and knows all her basic commands. She loves to go for nightly walks but tires out quickly due to her lack of exercise at her previous home, her foster mom is working on improving her stamina. 

Bailey is very tolerant of her 3 and 4 year old foster (GSP) brothers but doesn't care to play with them.  She would much rather hang with her foster Mom watching her every move while intermittently snoozing.  She is very relaxed and laid back. If you love the breed but don't care for the energy she's the girl for you. She has no interest in jumping fences at this point in her life.

Bailey will make a wonderful addition to any home where she can get extra love and attention that she deserves. Bailey is being fostered in Westminster, MD. If she interests you, please fill out an application!

Millie- Adoption Pending

Millie is a 1.5 year old spayed female. She is good with dogs and kids. 

Millie is looking for a house with an owner that works from home, stays home or is retired. She prefers her owners where she can see them. Millie knows sit and stay and is 90% house trained. She is not crate trained. She loves praise and responds well to training.

Millie rides well in the car and in the boat. She loves to swim! She is e-fence trained and stays within 5 ft fencing. Millie loves other dogs but is too prey-driven for cats. She is a wonderful dog and will be even better when her training is finished.

Millie is in the Mechanicsville, MD area. Rescue is looking for a foster, adopter, or foster to adopt for Millie. If you are interested, please fill out an application!

Gunther- Adoption Pending

Gunther is a handsome and happy 50lb male. Gunther turns one years old July 11th. He is looking for a home with love and exercise!

Gunther is a typical energetic pointer. He LOVES children and other dogs. He is too prey driven for cats. Gunther is house broken and crate trained. He knows sit, come, and is working on stay and down. He walks well on a leash with a prong collar but needs help with loose leash walking.

Gunther enjoys talking to you! He is not necessarily a big barker but he likes to "happy growl" when he has toys in his mouth. Gunther's favorite party trick was hopping his foster mom's 4ft fence, so he will need 6ft or efencing. He has started some training with an e-collar and responds very well.

Gunther is very athletic and extremely smart. He will make a wonderful dog for an active family. He is quite happy to follow you around every where you go! Gunther is located in Bowie, MD. If he interests you, please fill out an application!

Dixie- Adoption Pending

Dixie is an absolute love!  She has a quiet and sweet personality.  She can be a bit timid at first with new people and dogs but once she knows she is safe, she warms right up and is all in for love and attention.  At 40lbs, Dixie is a perfect size. She is spayed and up to date on her vaccines. Dixie is approximately 1 year old.

Dixie loves playing with other dogs.  She has gotten along very well with our 2 year old GSP.  She plays hard and will let her playmate know enough is enough with a quick bark or yip and retreat.  She does need lots of space to get her energy out.  

Dixie loves being around her people.  She really follows the energy level of her humans.  If you are relaxing, she will find a quiet spot and cozy up.  If you want to take a walk, she is eager to come along and play. If you are up and moving around the house, she is tagging along to see what you are up to.  She loves going for walks, but lets that hound nose get the best of her and pulls her walking companion along.  Leash training is something we are currently working with her on and she is showing progress.  

Dixie is still young in many ways but has outgrown most puppy behaviors.  She still has some manners to learn such as not jumping and least training.  She loves to chew on bones and thankfully has let shoes/furniture be.  She can follow a few simple requests like sit and come.  Stay has been tricky because she loves to be right with you.  We are still working on house training but once she knows what door to go to to let you know she has to go out, she will let you know. Due to the foster families schedule, Dixie is in the crate during the work day.  Dixie would benefit from being with a family who is home more or has a schedule to train her properly with the crate if needed.  She is a smart girl who loves treats, so any training is usually picked up quickly when reinforced with a treat and lots of love.  

Dixie has done well with the children in the foster home (ages 10 & 12).  Younger kids below 5 may be a bit much for her timid personality as she shys away from quick movements and noise. Dixie will make a wonderful addition to a home where she can get the extra love, attention and training she deserves. Dixie is being fostered in Frederick, MD. If she interests you, please fill out an application!
