Tine-Marie Mudde with Nieka (EP), Baron (GSP) and Sammy (EP)

Tine-Marie Mudde is based in Gauteng and mom to 3 English Pointers and 1 GSP. In her own words: "My involvement with pointing dogs came accidentally … but it was meant to be. My tenant wanted to adopt a dog, and so we co-adopted a 5 year old “free to good home” Pointer boy Duke in May 2009. After losing my Staffie due to old age, I wanted more pointers. I realised that there was no rescue organisation for Pointers and related dogs. I was invited to assist with administration of German Shorthaired Pointers, South Africa FaceBook page where we also networked and assisted other organisations and individuals to re-home GSPs and EPs. Over time with the help and inspiration of many, GSP Rescue SA was born. For me any animal rescue work require team effort, each transporter, networker, volunteer, funder and adopter play a part.

I am a practical and compassionate person. Of my 4 dogs, 2 are qualified Animal Assisted Therapy Dogs with Paws for People, and a 3rd is currently in training. The Therapy work combines my passion for both animals and people; and responsible pet education is a huge part of it. I believe all dogs should have a “job” and if the human is part of the activity it builds a precious bond between humans and animals and the result will be a happier dog.

I enjoy attending obedience training with my dogs. I also hold a satisfying full time corporate job. I love spending time with friends and family and love travelling, for which I unfortunately do not have much time for at this stage in my life."

Lianie Dalby with Douglas (Spaniel)

Lianie Dalby with Douglas (Spaniel)

Lianie Dalby is based in Gauteng and is owned by 5 Cocker Spaniels, 1 American Cocker Spaniel, 2 cats and 1 & 3/4 Parrots. A bit more about Lianie in her own words:" I became involved in Rescue because of my love for Cocker Spaniels. First as a foster mom and then actively in the Rescue and Rehoming of Cocker Spaniels. I fostered 4 GSP cross pups in January 2015. They stole my heart and we foster failed . She was a total enigma in our lives and taught us a lot including loving her enough to let her go. After a break during which I was more involved “behind the scenes” I felt ready to join the Rescue World more actively again. The wonderful ladies of GSP Rescue accepted me with open arms.... as for hobbies.... Obviously I love animals but I enjoy reading , movies, mosaics, cooking and torturing my husband ( by threatening to bring home more dogs). I love helping and knowing I made a difference to some animal. You cannot save them all but you can change the world for one dog. "

Rolien Prinsloo with Desha(RIP)

Rolien Prinsloo is based in Gauteng and mom to 7 GSPs, all of them adopted as adult dogs and 1 English Pointer. In her own words:"I met a GSP in 1998 for the first time and waited two years for my first puppy, Juba. Six months after Juba, came Yogi and then came Desha and Mia. Desha taught me to think like a GSP because I always had to be one step ahead of her. I adopted Tandi in 2013 and had so much fun doing it, that I adopted Mischke a year later. Through Mischke I became friends with Tine-Marie and my involvement in rescue started as a result of that. It was not planned, it just happened. Since joining GSP Rescue SA in 2014, more than 200 GSPs have passed through my hands. I know each one‘s story and where they are today. Together with Hendri, we have fostered so many of the rescues that I have lost count, some of them found their permanent home with us. I fall in love with each dog we take into rescue, it’s hard not to and they will forever have a special place in my heart. Rescue can be tough and there have been moments when I feel ready to give up, but my love for these dogs and the end result keep me going. When I am not at my corporate job or doing rescue work, I enjoy reading, painting, gardening, sewing, crafting and spending time with my dogs."

Hendri Prinsloo with the late great Mia

Hendri Prinsloo is based in Gauteng and together with his wife, Rolien, is parent to 7 adopted GSPs and 1 English Pointer. Hendri is known as the GSP Whisperer and has an instant connection with even the most difficult of dogs. In his own words: "I inherited two young GSPs when I moved in with my wife in 2003 and immediately fell in love with them. Together with my Mia, we cycled many kilometers and I have the fondest memories of our daily adventures. I had no choice but to become involved with rescue, it happens when your wife is a rescuer. I love the energy and personalities of the GSPs, there is no better breed on earth. I enjoy spending time with my family, dogs included, mountain biking with my dogs, roadtrips, reading, woodwork and keeping busy with anything I can find to do."
