Thanks to you, I have had nothing but joy with my sweet orange belton boy. You led me to him on May 30, 2010. He used to be named Shakespeare. Remember? He came from a lady in Oregon. When that lady passed away, her daughter contacted you about this wonderful dog. She brought him from Oregon to San Diego, and just couldn't handle him because he was so active. I wanted you to know that yesterday he earned his CGC, and he became a certified therapy dog. I'm so excited. I just love him, and now I can share with with so many others. He was severely underweight when I got him. He has gained 12 pounds, bless his heart. He was so skittish when I first got him. I was afraid he would always be scared. It took a while, but he was so easy to love. He was affectionate from the very beginning. Thank you for your part in bringing all this happiness. I'll always be grateful. When he starts doing his therapy work, I'll send you pictures of that. He's going to work in libraries and schools. He's very good with children! First, I have to send in all the paperwork and whatnot. I suppose he won't start his first visit until November. Anyway, thank you so much!
Much love,
Penny & Henry

REX
*ADOPTED*
Rex
Whoopie! I have a forever home WITH brothers! Yup, foster mom and dad were right, I would know when it was my turn. I went with Mom and Dad to the park one Sunday, didn't understand why I needed a bath first, YUCK! but . . . once there we saw lots of birds and neat things and then all of a sudden, there was this person, well two people and two dogs. One looked a lot like me all white and orange but with more fur and the other was small and black and kinda funny acting ( I learned later he was older and going blind but that's ok, he is still neat). Anyhow, we all played and they petted me a lot and then they left and we went home - boy was I confused, did I do something wrong? did they not like me? I didn't understand but then Mom explained that they really liked me and went home to get the yard ready for me . . . WOW how cool is that? So it took a while but they finally came back and got me (of course I had to have ANOTHER bath and my nails done and a lecture about behaving from Mom but that's ok cause I got a new home, I got a new home, I . . . YEAH! ! !).

I am so happy, Happy, HAppy, HAPpy. HAPPy, H A P P Y - get it?

DEAN
*ADOPTED*
Dean
My name is Dean. I was found with my brother Sam running along the American River. We were covered in ticks and burrs and very skinny. But, we got better and then Sam went to his forever home . . . I was sad because I missed him but happy for him. It took a little longer for me but I finally found my forever home too. It was scarry leaving my foster home, I didn't know what to expect but, my forever mom and dad really want me to be a part of their family and to make me happy. I get my very own cats, doggie day care, they come home at lunch time and play with me, I get to go to the dog park and run and every day dad and I go for long walks . . . What's not to love?

Thank you to everyone who helped me along the way . . . life is GOOD.

This is Katie. She was rescued from Sacramento County Animal Control. She is about 6+ years, orange, spayed and very sweet. She had surgery to remove several of her teeth and since then has been very happy and smiley. She is quiet and wants to be either out in the yard or in the house laying about. She does not like cats and puppies make her nervous. The only time she has grrr'ed is when puppies get too close to her food.

RAIDER - NOW *ROSCO*

Raider
Hi everybody! Remember me? I came into your rescue program as Raider, and then people called me Hopper, Sheldon, Buddy, hey you... but now I have a Forever Name. I am ROSCO! Rosco P Coltrane kew kew kew kewt if you want my full name.

I live in the BEST home ever. I have a mom & dad, and live on a HUGE property which is nice cuz I like to run. Actually, I love to run. I have the coolest dog yard ever. I have a pond. It is my very own pond and I swim in it all the time. There are koi in there but I do not bother them. And catfish too. The pond is one of my favorite parts of my yard. I also have a dog igloo house to keep me safe and dry if it is ever raining when my mom & dad are not home and I am playing in my yard. I like being wet, and usually am since the pond is right there for me dip in all day long, but mom & dad wanted me to have a little private space. Dad had to crawl in it and show me what it was all about. Ya know what?? It is actually really cool to hang out in. I like to hang out in there after I play. It is my Rosco fort. I lay in wait for mom or dad to get home and pop out to greet them with my tail a-waggin.

In the house I hang out with my parents all the time. I am sooo mellow in the house and I have very nice manners. I get along with my kitty friends. I had kitty friends at my foster home and we always got on just fine. It is nice to have a family that likes me and likes to snuggle with me and stuff. I pretty much follow my mom everywhere.

I have adventures all the time. My mom tells my foster mom alll my mischief makins so that they can share a good laugh and strategize on how to tame the wild side of me. But I am just a good ol country boy and part of my charm is my mischief makins. I hear that is what makes people love me.

Anyway, I am so happy to have a forever home. Thanks GCESF for rescuing me from that shelter and helping me find a HOME!
Rosco

LUCY
*ADOPTED*
Lucy     Lucy
Hi All!

My name is Lucy. I am an active 2 to 3 year old, nobody knows my birthdate so if you pick a day to celebrate it I will be happy about that. My foster parents came all the way to Napa to get me - very exciting. My last owner put me there so I could find a better home. I am told I am a blue field bitch except I just had surgery to never have puppies (good idea). I am utd on all my shots and heartworm negative. I know that one is important because we waited at the shelter for that test to be done and boy were my fosters happy.

I love the car but not the crate. I like being outside. I chase squirrels and birds but I never seem to catch them. I like going for walks and running around but, when I come inside I like to lay on the couch - preferable next to you - with your hand on my belly giving me rubs. I really love to carry a stuffy around in my mouth and will play keepaway with other dogs. Oh, I forgot, I get along with all the dogs in my foster home and even like the cats! I have had one accident on the carpet but I think it was because I was used to a doggie door and this home doesn't have one of those. That's ok, I am better about it now and understand I need to let someone know I need to go out. My new mom says I like to eat and that is good because I am too skinny and she is trying to put some weight on me. She says she wishes she had that problem!

I really really would love a forever home and I promise to be good and give you lots of lovins. If you would like to meet me, please let my foster mom know by sending her a letter at mkeent@pacbell.net or, she says you can call her at 916*933*4961.

Oh, one more thing, I promise to leave you room to snuggle with me on the bed at night!

QUINN
*ADOPTED*
Quinn
Hi,

My name is Quinn.

I am 9 years old but like to pretend I am younger and I act that way. I am an almost all white field English Setter, no, I am not deaf. My people gave me to the shelter because they don't want to hunt anymore and so, they don't want me. sigh . .

Just thought you would like to know a little bit about me. I love being in the house, sleeping on the bed (or a cushion). I like other dogs but I don't play too much and my foster Mom is very happy that I leave the cat alone. One of my favorite thing to do is long walks and I promise not to pull on the lead. Oh, and I am going to class with my foster Dad and I really really like it, so does he because he keeps telling me how great I am.

I am happy, and I promise to be easy to get along with. The rescue people think I am a special dog. All I know is that I am looking for a new forever home (I would like it to be my last one).

If you like what you see in my picture please let them know.
Quinn

GUS
*ADOPTED*
Gus & Friend

Hi Lois!

This is Gus meeting Neal the Pig, who lives in the front yard of a home in Sierra Madre. Gus and I had gone up to meet a friend of mine for lunch in the park and a walk around Sierra Madre, a quaint little town where Jerry and I lived for five years (and can't afford to move back to).

Gus is dong pretty well. He still has the digestive problems but we manage it fairly well. He gets out to a restaurant with us once a week and is a perfect dinner companion. He wasn't even fazed last Saturday when we were eating on a small patio, he was near a geriatric greyhound and then an 18 month old English Mastiff settled in at the next table. It helped that the other dogs were equally well behaved.

He's had his picture taken at Death Valley, Oakland, Dog Beach, and several local parks but no one ever sends them to me. The other day I was walking him at Mile Square Park and four little kids surrounded him, petting him and asking questions a mile a minute in Spanish. I was able to answer most of the questions while the lady with the kids took a video of the encounter. Gus just sat there and loved every minute of it! He is such a good boy.

I hope all is well with you and yours,
Mary Joseph
