Miller is doing great! He loves going on runs with me.. I usually do 4 miles and he doesn't have any problems keeping up with me.

He is great with our girls and overly gentle with and around them!

Thank you for reaching out to us. Laney is doing great. We actually renamed her Zoe. The transition to her new home has been easier than we anticipated. We could not be happier with her! Zoe very shy and fearful when we got her but she has transformed into a confident playful puppy. She's sweet and loving and she loves to cuddle with us in bed or on the couch. She LOVES her big vizsla brothers and they love her just as much.

Hope is doing wonderfully. We are all settling in just great. She's had her first visit to the vet here and checks out great. We are getting her up to date on her shots and scheduling to get her teeth cleaned! She has started spending the nights in her dog bed in our room with us and not in the kennel, I think she loves the freedom. She is so loving and sweet. She is the perfect match for us and we couldn't be happier!!

Everything is going wonderfully. We have re-named him Case, and he is an amazing puppy with such a sweet temperament. I have never seen our GSP Rook get along with another dog like he and Case get along. It's pretty cute to watch!

Case is very much a puppy (with a lot of energy to expend) and really enjoys our weekends at the lake house. He loves to run in circles collecting sticks, pine cones and moss and put them in a pile for future chewing.

Thanks for checking in. I am happy to report that he is doing great! He had a real problem with separation anxiety the first couple weeks after we brought him home, but he has gotten over that. I think it was just him getting used to my schedule and his new environment. As you can see from some of the pictures I have attached he is just a big spoiled baby that we cant keep off our bed at night! We really could not have asked for a better pup.

I wanted to send a few pictures of Kramer (named after the Seinfeld character) and give an update!

He's doing really well and continues to be more and more energetic! He's incredibly goofy and slobbery. We have a rug at our entry way, where we feed the pups and he slides all over the place due to his excitement. The rug is never centered :o( We have taken him on a few more little runs and does well, however at about mile 3, he's a little tired. I think he enjoys longer walks than runs. It allows for more sniffing time.

He continues to sleep on his brother Scout, luckily Scout doesn't seem to mind.

Also he has chewed through two playstation remotes and two U-Verse remotes. nothing else, just that. He has a type.

Thank you for everything that you do for this organization!

We are so happy with Hera (we renamed Sorrel) and she is doing OK. She is very comfortable here in the house and she's very happy. After about a week, she was fully adapted to her new life, running and having a blast chasing things at the dog park. She's turned into a lap dog, and she likes to sleep up high (on top of her crate). We've put 2.5 lbs of muscle on her. She's a very smart dog -- she learns quickly, it didn't take long for her to get the routine here in the house. And she's done great with house training -- no accidents at all.

Sorry it has taken me so long to email you back. Medical school has gotten a little hectic lately. Belle is doing fantastic! She has come such a long way since I got her. She has become way more out going and confident. Belle is extremely smart, people are amazed that I have only had her for 2 months because she behaves so well. I take her every where with me and am so happy that I adopted her. She makes the best study buddy. Thanks for all that you guys do at GSP rescue.

Bruno had his first check-up yesterday with the vet. He went to the Animal Hospital Jones Road and was proclaimed to be a beautiful GSP specimen. Bruno now weighs 49 pounds and is one of the sweetest dogs I have ever met. I started him on Sentinel and Frontline this weekend, but will switch him next month to Trifexis.

Mesa is such a wonderful addition to our family. Each day I thank God that you all were there in our time of need. When we lost our German Shorthaird Pointer (Bear), we did not think we could ever love another one like him! Mesa is so fantastic! She has settled in so well. The first night she was with us, I left the light on. I did not know how well she would adjust to having only one eye. The next night I forgot to leave the hall light on.

This is Willa (aka spec) and Gauge in their front yard.

Hi there! We would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and let you know Shi is doing great! We love her and can't imagine life without her :-)

She gets chilly when the temperature drops and so we've bought her a sweater which she likes to wear to stay warm. I dress her up for the holidays and she's very patient with me! My son thinks I'm crazy but it's fun and she gets rewarded for it, so doesn't seem to mind. She's taken to sleeping with my son at night which he loves and she still tries to take over my sofa (a constant battle).

 We loved Clover very much and are all cherishing the brief time we had with her.  She was probably the best dog I've had.  I truly feel we made an old girls last months very happy and comfortable.

Lilly is settling in perfect. We are all crazy about her. She runs from one end of property to the other. She follows both my kids around all day and they love it. She has several toys and a new crate to sleep in. She is the perfect addition to our family.

Thank you,

~Jerry Darnell

Got him an ID tag yesterday and some toys. First dog we've had in a long while who understands about fetch and tug-of-war. He and Anna have become fast friends. All is well.

A year ago we met the girl of our dreams! After being rescued in Ft. Worth, having pneumonia for Christmas, traveling to an awesome foster home outside of Houston (Thank you Andi & Family), she finally made it to her forever home on Stonycreek in Dallas late January 2012. Even though her name is Lucky we feel as though we are the lucky ones. We are fools for her. We often say that she is the "perfect" dog for us. The first day Lucky came home she made herself right at home curling up in a ball on her favorite chair and constantly reminding us that even at 41lbs she IS a lap dog. She is such a happy girl and makes us giggle every day.

We're having a great time with Marco and I think that he really enjoys his new home. I'm still amazed on how quickly he warmed up to us. The first night he was here he fell asleep in my lap and he acts like he's been with us since he was pup. He's a smart boy and is well behaved in the house and yard, but his hunt instinct often gets the better of him when we're out walking. We'll keep working on that.

My first adoption began with a pint size ball of energy two years ago! He is a black and white male named Asher (formerly Azer). This little guy was a fence jumper from day one and would even jump while I was in the yard watching him. He had 2 hours of vigorous exercise a day, but you could not wear him out! Since I move on 16 acres, I have the perfect GSP who actually gets tired now.

Bernard is doing very well. I love him so much and I think he is happy in his new home. We are walking/jogging every morning and evening. He seems to be in excellent health for a 10 year old. He loves to play fetch with his kong and loves a rawhide bone every night, which he buries in his bed first, thinks about it, checks it, and then eats it!
