Adoptable Dogs

Dog of the week – Sia

Location: Gauteng

3 year old Sia says she longs for her forever family. She has been returned to rescue because she prefers to be an only dog and that is not her fault. Sia is amazing with children and needs a little human or two who she can cuddle with. She is super intelligent, energetic and very friendly with people. She can be an escape artist if the opportunity presents itself, so she will need a secure yard and gates. We would prefer a home with no other dogs or cats.

PS. Sia lost her one eye in a shooting incident, but she is just a normal, happy, loving GSP with a huge personality and loads of character.

Adoption notes

We aim to match dogs in need and potential adopting homes. Your specific preference in dogs might not be available at the time. Please consider one of the available dogs or monitor our Facebook and Website for new dogs becoming available for adoption.

We require all other pets in the adoptive home to be sterilised – special consideration will be given where pets cannot be sterilised based on medical motivation (e.g. age or medical condition).

We might not have any information about most of our dog’s bloodline or breeding.

Please consider the following terms and conditions when applying:

Adoption notes:

  • If you are interested in any of the dogs in the care of GSP Rescue SA, please contact Rolien Prinsloo, Lianie Dalby or Tine-Marie Mudde via GSP Rescue SA  with any questions or to request an adoption application form. You can also complete the adoption form electronically by clicking on the button underneath each dog’s photo.
  • Meet and greets / play dates can be arranged where practical.
  • Completed adoption form and full home checks apply. If you are in the same city / town, a play date with existing dogs would also take place.
  • We will make every effort to arrange / assist for transportation (at cost of new home, if applicable) for re-homing in South Africa.
  • An adoption fee of R1 200 per dog enable us place dogs that are sterilised, micro chipped, vaccinated (including kennel cough), and dewormed. In the instance of pups younger than 12 months, the adoption fee will be R1700.00, which is kept by GSP Rescue SA. This will be contributed toward the sterilisation when the pup is old enough. Strict sterilisation contracts will apply for dogs younger than 12 months. Please see note above for adoption fee increase.

NOTE: We cannot let distance stand in the way of a dog finding a good, loving family and we will consider homes in other provinces. We will assist with transport arrangements as much as we possibly can. 

The cost of any flights and road transport to the new home will be for the adopting family’s account and does not replace the adoption fee.

Available for adoption from GSP Rescue SA

The Pairs

Dobby and Kino’s Profiles
Location: Mpumalanga

We welcome the Dynamic duo Dobby and Kino into our GSP Rescue family. This beautiful pair need to find a home together. It is a huge ask we know but 7 year Dobby and 6 year old Kino is a bonded pair. The boys are used to sleeping inside on their own coach. They do not like cats and have not had any formal training. Dobby and Kino are regular blood donors for other furkids in need. They do not like Thunder or fireworks and will need reassurance. They are extremely affectionate and are good with kids. They haven’t had lots of exposure to smaller dogs so careful meet and greets would be advised. They absolutely love swimming so if you have a pool that’s a bonus. If you do have a space in your life for this gorgeous bonded pair please apply. It will really break our hearts to separate them.

The Lasses

Roxy’s Profile

Location: Gauteng, can relocate

Meet 2 year old Rozy, a stunning girl needing a new home. Roxy is fantastic with children and adults. She is a typical young GSP, full of energy, loves to play with other dogs. She travels well in the car.

Roxy doesn’t like cats and thunder. She can be an escape artist when the gate opens and her humans fear for her safety. She is also know to jump the fence, so a property with higher walls would be fine and access control to the gate, or even a double-date system can work.

Storm’s Profile

Location: Gauteng

Beautiful Storm is looking for her forever home.
Storm is the sweetest 4 year old GWP X GSP. She was surrendered to Wollies Animal Shelter that agreed for us to take her over. We have no background on her.

What we I can tell you is that she was a bit shell shocked when we collected her and just want to stay 5 mm from humans, that made for an interesting time to try and take photos of her.
Something else that is painfully obvious is that she has had multiple litters.

Her original owners did say that she was not good with small dogs and cats (although she showed little interest in the shelter cats when we picked her up).

We will let her de-compress and then see how she is with other dogs.

She is currently at Boavida kennels.

Chocolate’s Profile

Location: Gauteng, can relocate

We welcome 18 month old Chocolate into GSP Rescue’s care. Chocolate and her sister was surrendered as they are a formidable double act. Sweet and lovely girls …..together they were double trouble. ABSOLUTELY NO CATS OR SMALL DOGS OR ANY SMALL ANIMALS. Chocolate got into a lot of trouble for her abilities to “ hunt” Although Chocolate and her sister Tanya was surrendered together we feel it is in their best interest to be separated as they “ gang “ up. As long as there is a same size friend ……. meet and greets will be essential to make sure she fits in. There is no known phobias.

Chockie’s Profile

Location: Gauteng

Chockie, 13 year old female.

Dear Chockie or Chocolate is in need of a retirement home (owners are emigrating).

Her current owner writes: “Chockie is a friendly and loving dog. Very protective of me her owner but listens very well if I say: No, leave and sit or lay down.

She loves to be outdoors, but will come into the house or office if it is warm or if she want something to snack on. Then she will put her head on your lap and look straight into your eyes.

She has a good rat and snake catching record. She saved my life when she bit a snake just behind a door were I was about to go out of.

At this stage she is mostly laying in the office with me during the day.

Chockie loves to go for a walk and do well on the leash.
She were never been beaten of kicked in her life, so please she will not understand that kind of behavior if someone want to hurt her.

She loves to put her head on you and ask for attention and love.

She is not aggressive, only barking when someone step into her territory and will stand next to you or between you and someone else and do the smell thing.

She loves children, she grew up with my young son and teenage daughter.

So she does well with other dogs. She is living with two small pinchers and one Jack Russell. She is not aggressive toward other dogs, except with her food. Livestock no problem, we had cows and sheep. But she definitively is not in love with cats.

She do not like gun shots. She not afraid of thunderstorms, but please no fireworks.

Please find people that are living in a big yard or on a plot. That’s all Chockie knows and she needs space to run around where she could still be useful for people and chase after rats. I will rather see her with people that are still active and wants to go for walks every now and then.”

Lola’s Profile

Location: Gauteng

Lola is a pure bred, 3 and a half year old (English) Pointer. She is currently on the West Rand of Johannesburg.

She is a friendly and active girl and her favorite past time is chasing birds. She is great with children and other dogs, has never been with cats (but will probably not be good with them).

She is unfortunately not house trained and has not had any training – but naturally points birds.

One of our team members will go and meet her next week and then we will be able to tell you a little more about this princess.

Lola would love to be part of a loving, active family. A more experienced dog owner should be able to take her through any problems with house training with ease.

Marley’s Profile

Location: Gauteng

Sweet Marley finds herself homeless again. Through no fault of her own, things did not work out with the family who adopted her and she returned to rescue.
 
Marley is an 2 year old German Wirehaired Pointer (GWP).
 
If you want a girl who is active, loving, playful, cuddly and smart, the maybe Marley is your girl. She LOVES treats so much that she will sit for them. She even thinks her dewormer and tick & flea treatment are treats.
 
Life is an adventure for Marley and she lives in the moment. She will need a family who will take her in and let her share in all their daily and fun activities. She seems to be fine with large well socialised dogs, so meets and greets will be essential. She is amazing with small and big humans.
 
We will NOT place her in home with smaller dogs, cats, chickens, rabbits or livestock. 

The Lads

Hunter’s Profile

Reserved

We welcome beautiful 18 month old Hunter into our GSP Rescue Family . He is a live wire who needs an active fun loving family who will invest some time and energy into his training. He is devoted to his humans and would love to be with them and be part of their lives. Hunter does not know cats so may in all likelihood chase them. He has no noise phobias. He has grown up with smaller dogs but may play a bit rough with them . So meet and greets are highly recommended. Due to his boisterous nature we would prefer older children as he may be a tad overwhelming to our smaller humans. He has no experience as a working dog and is a much loved family member.

Milo’s Profile

Location: Eastern Cape

Hello GSP peeps. My name is Milo and I am 6 months old. I’m also looking for my forever family. I am a typical GSP puppy, full of energy (VERY full of energy), and have an intelligent, eager mind. I love exploring new things and call myself adventurous. I am adorable and love human company. My foster brother and sisters are my best friends and I enjoy playing with them, so a friend or two would be awesome. I am very bouncy and boisterous and tend to express my joy at seeing my foster humans by jumping up. I do not like cats, but I love children. I would make an excellent running or cycling partner when I am older and finished growing. I need a job to do, else I tend to get myself into trouble.My ideal family would:

– Be VERY GSP savvy.
– Invest time in training me how to be a proper GSP gentleman
– Be active and take me on all sorts of adventurous activities
to burn some energy.
– Stimulate my young inquisitive mind.
– Have patience with me while I learn.
– Have older children because I am young and boisterous and may bump little ones over by accident.

Patches’ Profile

Location: Gauteng, can relocate

Currently in Gauteng, 3 year old Patches, can travel if a suitable home is found. Patches is familiar with cats but we cannot guarantee how he will react to strange felines. Patches is not used to small dogs and prefer the company of same size dogs . Currently him and his partner Dexter are looking for a home…. together would be a bonus but can be separated if need be. Patches tends to be the dominant male and can be jealous if he is not the centre of attention. It is more than this love bug can bear….. Patches will be sterilised before being adopted. Patches is afraid of noises and thunderstorm.

Max’s Profile

Gauteng, but can relocate

Max is a 4,5 year old , super adorable Lab x English Pointer. Max was adopted from us in 2017 but sadly had to be returned due to change in circumstances.
Max is loving and curious boy, prefers children that is a little bigger (+10 y old). He is better with larger breed female dogs and is a danger to cats. He is fully housetrained and knows basic commands. He is an amazing passenger in the car. He will benefit a lot (like all dogs) from some training.
Max needs a family who will love him and in return he will be your loyal and faithful companion forever.

Benji’s Profile

Location: Gauteng

Letter from Benji’s foster humans:
Benji is a fun-loving and very energetic boy, just over 2 years old. We think his “off” / “rest” switch might be a little broken. He has been in our home as a foster since October 2016, but need to find his own forever home soon.
He gets along well with our GSP male and Springer female – and should be fine with other K9’s as long as they can tolerate his boisterousness.
Benji is very inquisitive, enjoys human and K9 company. He plays very soft with kids.
He has put his paw to perfecting gardening so need positive stimulation to keep his eager mind and body busy. He will reward his new humans with loyal companionship if they invest in structured training with him.
The only time he lies still is when he is curled up in the home with his friends surrounding him, but he needs to make sure that our GSP is clean before going to bed, he gets licked from head to toe first.

Benji would need an experienced GSP family who knows and understands the needs of this breed. This, unfortunately, is not negotiable. Benji is not for a first time GSP owner or for the faint of heart.
