We are always in need of foster homes. If you are able and willing to help give a dog a temporary home please fill out our Volunteer Application!

Zeus


Zeus is a 5 yr old neutered and super handsome liver GSP.  He is house and crate trained, but doesn't need crated when alone at home as he is not destructive.  He is fully vaccinated and microchipped.  


Zeus is too much for younger kids, so older teenagers and physical fencing would suit him.  Zeus will start a 4 week board and train at Ridgeside Dog Training on May 2nd.  He will learn all commands (sit, stay, heel, come, place and down).  He knows some of these but he will learn them on a remote collar.  He has met the trainer and did fantastic in his eval.  He will be a fully finished dog when he is done.  We get to do this for a couple dogs a year as board and train obedience is expensive.


Once Zeus knows you he loves you and you are in "the circle of trust", a friend forever.  Zeus is a fetch maniac.  When you toss the ball with a chuck-it its like he has been shot out of a rocket.  He is fast and he is dedicated.  He can play fetch forever.  Zeus will point the possum statue in my flower bed and stay there doing that for a long time.  He is focused.


We would love if he has an interested applicant as he comes out of training so that the new owner could attend his discharge lessons, but if not the trainer has offered to meet with anyone who adopts him.  


Zeus is a special guy and needs an active owner who is willing to give him a job, Zeus loves to be doing something.  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

Jupiter


Jupiter is a 2 yr old neutered male GSP weighing 64 lbs.  He is utd on vaccines and microchipped. Jupiter did not get a lot of socialization in his previous life, so he would be best as an only dog home at this time. He can be reactive when he is on leash and he sees other dogs.  He is currently in a 2-3 week board and train with AAA Dog Training.  They believe they can remedy him reacting to other dogs when leash walking, time will tell if he is able to have a canine friend in the same home with him.


Jupiter knows sit and walks very well on a leash.  He likes going for walks and is a joy to walk with in a quiet environment.  He is house and crate trained.  He does not get on furniture and will sleep on his dog bed beside the human bed with zero fuss.  He doesn't wake up till you do.


He is quite athletic and is always up for whatever activity you would like to do, he especially likes his ball and fetch.  He knows the word "no" so whenever he is doing something you don't want, just tell him 'no' and he stops what he is doing immediately.  He likes to steal items, shoes, pillows, etc.  Just offer him a ball or a treat and he will drop whatever he has in his mouth.  This too will be corrected in training.


I met him at a Dunkin Donut off a busy road and he was quietly walking around, no barking, no carrying on, just being a good gentle dog.  We think this boy has tons of potential.


Jupiter is being fostered in Baltimore, MD. He does well with children. If interested in Jupiter please fill out our Adoption Application at the link above and any additional questions can be sent to faithgsp@yahoo.com

Sarah


Sarah is a 2 year old spayed female weighing 57lbs. Sarah's owners had to make the tough decision to surrender her to rescue after they had an unexpected medical emergency.


Sarah is a spitfire. This is one energetic girl! Her ideal home would have another canine friend who can keep up with her, and lots of land to run and play. Sarah is house broken and crate trained. She is not used to being left alone for more than 4 hours at a time so we would like to find her a home where she is with her people.


Sarah is down for adventures and loves to ride in the car. Sarah has had some basic obedience training and knows, sit, here, stay, down, heel, and wait. Sarah has lived with kids previously, but can be rambunctious so she is not the best fit for little kids. Sarah is good in 4ft fencing. Sarah has too much prey drive to live with cats or birds.


Sarah is a sweet but intense girl who would make an excellent agility, or field dog. She is currently in Elkton, MD. If she interests you, 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!

Daisy Mae


Daisy Mae is a 7 year old spayed female GSP mix weighing approximately 50lbs. Daisy Mae is a sweet girl but she needs a quiet home where her owner can spend a lot of time with her.


Daisy Mae is house broken and has been through basic obedience. She rides well in the car and loves to be with people. Her ideal home would be with someone who works from home or is retired and can spend as much time with her as possible.


Daisy Mae needs a home without cats and other dogs. She is leash reactive to other dogs, so city living is not the best for her. Daisy Mae is located in Arlington, VA. If you are interested, please contact her owner at amber.m.lopez@gmail.com

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!

Diesel- Adoption Pending


Diesel is a 4.5 yr old neutered male weighing approximately 70 lbs. Diesel has found his way into rescue because his family is moving into an apartment and feel that environment will not be right for him.


Diesel is a very energetic dog who loves to run and play with his toys. He knows his basic commands, but needs a little help with his leash walking. He is house broken and crate trained. Diesel is trained to an electric fence and is quite happy frolicking through his yard and throwing his toy around.  


Diesel met a GSP friend at the beach and did just fine with him, so he could live in a home with another dog.  He also loves his people. Diesel is currently in Salisbury, MD. If you are interested, please fill out an application.

Foster- Adopted


Foster is a 60 lb lap dog with a heart of gold. After a hard day of playing he loves nothing more than to curl up with as much of himself in your lap as possible. Do not be fooled though, at 1.5 years old he is very much a hyperactive teenager and needs tons of exercise and calm, firm direction.


Foster is self-assured and needs clearly defined and communicated boundaries. His ideal family is calm, confident and dog savvy. Foster is not overly dominant, but he does want to know where he falls in the hierarchy and tests boundaries to figure it out. His owners need to be able to recognize signs and correct him early. He is a smart boy who is receptive to directions and picks things up quickly.

Foster LOVES other dogs and would greatly enjoy having a doggy companion and/or going to doggy daycare. He is a loud player and very exuberant, so he would not be recommended for a home with an older settled dog.

Foster currently lives with 2 children (ages 4 & 9) and 2 dogs (2.5 year old male & 1 year old female) and does great with all of them. He is crate trained but currently spends most of his day playing with his doggy foster sister as his foster dad works from home. Every day he gets a couple mile walk or a 3-6 mile run in addition to his all day playtime. He has greatly improved as a running companion and mostly trots along without pulling or zig zagging. He also walks pretty well on a leash but does need to work on passing people and dogs. Foster has lived in a home with 4ft fencing and done well. While he doesn't challenge fences he has been known to try and sneak out the front door. Door etiquette and boundaries are a must.

If you think you can give this sweet, boisterous, young guy the structure he needs please fill out an application at the link above. Foster is located in Severna Park, MD.

Talley- Adopted


Talley is a 4 yr old spayed female GSP weighing 42 lbs, she is a petite little girl.  She is microchipped and utd on all vaccines.  She is on monthly heartworm preventative.


Talley is both house and crate trained.  She isn't fond of dogs who get in her personal space initially, but she can live with another dog.  Talley doesn't really seek other dog company, so she could just as easily be an only dog.  So if you are looking for a playmate for a current dog, Talley is not the dog for that.  She currently lives with a male dog who has some neurological issues, and she is fine with him.


She enjoys her walks at St. Michaels, rides well in the car, always up for an adventure trip.  Talley is initially nervous in new situations and the best thing is to just let her settle at first and after about a week she will act like she has been with you forever. We think Talley would do best in a home with kids 10 and up.
