We always are in need of foster homes. If you are able and willing to help give a dog a temporary home please fill out our application through the link above!


Rondo is an 8 year old neutered male weighing approximately 60lbs. Rondo is up to date on all vaccines and is healthy. Rondo is house trained and can be left freely in the house when you are gone.

Rondo is in need of a home without children and one that will give him structure and continue to work with him. Rondo knows his basic obedience and rides well in the car. He gets along well with other dogs but does not like cats.

Rondo is currently in Centreville, VA.


Tas, short for Tasmania, is a 1 1/2 year old neutered male. He is good natured. He was found in the woods along the Virginia/North Carolina border and taken into a county shelter. Tas is on the smaller side at about 45lbs.

He has not had any formal dog training but he is smart and food motivated and he is house trained.  He is easy to walk but does go crazy when he sees a squirrel so he might not be good with cats.  I think he might do well at agility.  He is very puppy like in his play and movement.  If you pet him or scratch him behind his ears he melts into submission.  He loves people. He could be described as a Velcro dog.

Tas is being fostered in Silver Spring, MD. If you have room in your heart and home for this sweet boy, please fill out an application! Any questions about Tas can be directed to Faith at faithgsp@yahoo.com  


Tito is a 3.5 month old Pointer/Hound mix. He and his siblings were sent to a shelter before being pulled by rescue. Tito is currently about 20lbs and will be available for adoption in a few weeks once he is neutered.

Tito does very well with other dogs. He enjoys being around other dogs and his ideal home would have a dog companion for him to play with. He is also great with children, although he is still a puppy, so he does nip. He is happiest with his people after an exuberant play session with a canine companion.

Tito is working on his house-breaking and crate training. He is a very confident and brave dog, who is quick to learn new commands. Tito will need a home where someone is either home or has a dog walker arrangement, as a puppy he cannot hold his bladder for 8 hours a day without a potty break.

Tito is being fostered in Westminster, MD. If you are interested in making him a part of your family, please fill out an application!


Miles is an approximately 2 year old neutered male weighing 50lbs. Miles is up to date on all his vaccines and ready for his forever home. Miles is good with other dogs and children.

Miles is looking for a home with another canine companion, or a home where someone is home a lot. Miles does not like to be crated! Miles is efence trained and walks well on a leash. He has a general foundation in common commands.

Miles loves being with his people and is quite snuggly. He makes for an excellent walking partner. Miles is being fostered in Chester, MD. If you are interested in adopting him, please fill out an application!


Fynn is around 1 year old and weighs 37lbs (he definitely needs to gain some weight). He is neutered and up to date on his vaccines, unfortunately, he is heartworm positive, but will be starting treatment soon. 

Fynn sleeps in his crate but still fights a little going in...we are working on that. Fynn is not very vocal, he whines a little when he gets excited. He has made a lot of improvement on house training but needs just a little more time to master it. He is food/treat motivated. 

Fynn is such a cuddle bug. He is happiest laying on the couch with you. He LOVES being around or near you. All he really wants is attention and to be loved on. Fynn is very friendly and always excited to meet new people.  He likes to chew on bones and play with stuffed/squeaky toys. 

He is fine around other dogs once he gets used to them. Fynn is NOT cat friendly.

Fynn is being fostered in Chester, VA. If you have room in your heart and home for this sweet boy, please fill out an application!


Ellie is a 9 month old female GSP.  She is 40 lbs and both house and crate trained.

She is coming into rescue as her owner doesn't have a fenced yard and Ellie needs more exercise.  Her owner wants her to be able to run, play and be active.

She is good with other dogs, kids and cats.  With cats she will chase them but doesn't harm them. 

Ellie is a typical pointer puppy and is currently in Culpeper, VA.  If you are interested in Ellie, pls email us at faithgsp@yahoo.com


Della is 3 yrs old and 45 lbs. She is in a shelter and listed as "rescue only" because she is heartworm positive.  Heartworms in this age are treatable and dogs live happy, normal lives after treatment.

She has been waiting since January for a miracle and the shelter is getting full and saying they are going to euthanize her.  We have been watching her story as she is in NC.  But its hard to keep seeing her not receive any assistance.

She is already spayed and vaccinated. Della will be fostered in the Northern VA area.

Maverick is a 6.5 year old male that is currently in a shelter. He was not made for city living and needs a home without cats. He is neutered, up to date on his vaccines and currently weighs 66lbs. Maverick is housetrained and very friendly with people. He knows some basic commands.

If you are interested in fostering to adopt or adopting Maverick directly from the shelter please email Faith at faithgsp@yahoo.com


Nick- Adoption Pending

Nick is a 1-2 yr old neutered male GSP.  He is a small guy at 39 lbs but could stand to gain 5 more pounds.

He is an excellent rider in the car.  He is crate trained and 90% house trained.  Nick has an award winning personality, he is good with all people, adults and children.

Nick likes having a canine friend to play with, so a home with a dog already would be wonderful for him.

He is utd on his vaccines and microchipped.  He is a handsome tyke.

There isn't anything not to like about Nick, his foster Dad says he is pretty perfect.  He is being fostered in Easton, MD. 


Winston is a 4 month old Pointer/Hound mix. He is approximately 20lbs. Winston and his brother Tito were brought to a shelter before being pulled by rescue and are now looking to live the good life!

Winston is working on his housebreaking and crate training. He is a very sweet guy. He is an energetic little pup and will need to live with a younger more energetic dog.

Winston still needs to be neutered and have a few more shots but then he will be available for adoption. Winston is being fostered in the Northern Virginia area. If you are interested in adding him to your home, please fill out an application!

Bentley- Adopted

Bentley is a 5.5 year old neutered pure bred. He is very loving, sweet, and has a lot of energy. Bentley does well with most dogs but needs to be in a home without children or cats.

 Bentley has a lot of energy so he would need to pair with someone who could give him a lot of exercise, attention and playtime! Bentley would make an excellent running companion.  He can sit, heal, whoa, rollover and does well off leash (with an E-collar).  He may need a refresher in loose leash walking. While he does love food and treats, he doesn’t go after people food and isn’t a counter surfer. Bentley isn’t protective or aggressive about his food either and when being fed will sit and wait until you indicate that he can begin eating. 

Bentley doesn’t chew furniture, remotes, shoes or really anything (except his toys) thus can be left out during the day. He is also good being crated and really prefers his crate at certain times and definitely in the evenings (although some evenings he is also into snuggling). Bentley can be weary around new people and has a deep distrust of the mail man!  Bentley would be a great dog for someone who can provide him with a lot of love, a big yard/farm, activity, and discipline and in exchange he will return the love and even gives doggie hugs.

Bentley is in White Hall, MD. If you are interested in him please fill out an adoption application.
