Females attending

Shacha (Sasha) is a nice, 5 year old, Sable Shepherd who loves affection and belly rubs. She was picked up as a stray along with Wolfgang. Oakland Animal Services notified the owner of record but they never came for the pair. Sasha also looks as though she had weaned a litter (or more) of puppies in her past. Sasha knows basic commands such as sit and down plus she comes immediately when called. She will sit nicely for treats but does need a little work to take them with a polite mouth. She also waited to potty until she was outside which leads us to believe that she may be housebroken too. More...
This beautiful cautious girl was found wandering the streets of San Jose. She was not happy at the shelter and was waiting for someone to take her away. When our volunteers met her she was cautious at first but after a few minutes and some head scratches she decided she was in good hands. She is a gentle dog who understands how to walk on a leash and loves attention and belly rubs. She passed her evaluation without any problems. She likes to play tug and will give the toy back without any problem. More...
Elsie LB
Elsie is an active, affectionate, petite and friendly pup. Currently weighing in at 40 pounds, Elsie really wants to play with all the other doggies (and all of them all at once if she could figure out how). She was picked up as a stray in Los Banos, and we believe she's approximately 8 months old. Since she was a stray there's scant history or prior info we can share. While at the animal shelter, there were several possible adopters, but these did not pan out. With her time nearly up, the Los Banos Shelter notified GSRNC that there was a sweetheart doggy that needed a place to go, and after a quick evaluation we agreed to take her in. Did we mention Elsie loves to play. More...
Farrah is a very sweet senior female German Shepherd dog that was picked up as a stray by Monterey County Animal Services. When she was found, she was not in good shape, having a severe flea infestation, painful ears, and crusty discharge from her eyes requiring a vet visit. When first meeting Farrah, she can be vocal and wants to tell you everything she has been through. She eventually calms down and will seek attention. She is not fond of the crate, but has accepted that this will be her safe haven from time to time. She is a low energy dog, but that may change once she is feeling better. More...

Males attending

Carson V
Carson is a beautiful 2 year old who was picked up as a stray in Vallejo. Carson is very sweet and lovable. He loves affection and gives kisses freely. He comes when called, but is easily distracted. His leash training has improved and he is learning to walk loose on leash.  He is excellent with the sit command, rides well in a car, is crate trained and is house trained. He doesn't get on the furniture. He's learning the "wait" command. More...

Davey is a calm, quiet and collected boy then add in a luscious cream and black coat and you have a winner. Davey was rescued from the Oakland Animal Shelter. Davey is not excitable at all; he is a little playful but not overly....just a nice boy who will also lean in for pets. Davey was evaluated with Bunny who he went nose to nose with and the duo just wanted to play with each other. But as for toys, he showed no interest. More...
Tristan SJ
Tristan is a handsome, happy energetic young dog that loves running, jumping, playing with toys and interacting with people. On the walk from his kennel at the shelter to the evaluation area he was pulling hard and sniffing everything around. Once he was turned loose in the evaluation area he zoomed around saying hi to everybody and trying to get some one to play with him. He was not disappointed. He got to play with a ball a tug toy. He got lots of pets and scratches but pets and scratches where not as much fun as MORE PLAY!! Once he learned we would play with him if he sat and looked at us, he tried his new trick on everybody. Good dog!! More...

Thulani Dogs attending

Dogs that are part of the Thulani Program are looking for a forever home that will care for them for the rest of their life, in warmth and love. Each dog will come with a supply of food, a cushy pad if wanted, and other goodies such as toys. Their medical expenses will be covered for the rest of their life by The Thulani Program. If you want to learn more about the Thulani Program please contact Bob at
Robert T
The Thulani Program
Helping the most vulnerable... free medical coverage for life

Robert is a handsome yet sweet 11 year old neutered male German Shepherd that was owner surrendered to the Downey Shelter in S. Cal.  Robert is a big boy. He weighs in at 98 lbs but as you can see in his photos below it suits his frame well. Unfortunately he has some pretty severe mobility problems that might be helped by loosing some of those lbs. The medical report and xrays are consistent with Osteoarthritis. It appears that Robert's owner may have given up on him and dumped him at the shelter at the first sign that he was getting to be a senior dog however. The Thulani Program has rescued Robert so he is now safe from the perils of a crowded shelter. His mobility issues will be further explored so that we can identify what is needed for Robert to get the most out of his senior years. We have found that often times there are relatively small things that can make a big difference... such as the use of diet, a mild exercise program, and/or the use of NSAIDs or other Arthritis medication. This Sweet dog deserves whatever we can do for him. More...

Important Note About
Dog Descriptions

Please remember that the descriptions of dogs have been written by GSRNC volunteers and are usually based only upon our observation of the dog since the time it was rescued. While we try to provide dog descriptions that are fair and accurate, the nature of our work involves contact with dogs whose background and history are unknown to us. GSRNC cannot warrant or guarantee any dog's future behavior. For example, if we say that a rescue dog gets along with children, cats, or other dogs, this statement is usually based upon the fact that one of our volunteers has observed the dog interacting with his or her own children or pets. While this information may be helpful, we cannot be certain of how a dog will do with the children or pets in your home. If you are considering adopting, we encourage you to come to one of our Adoption Days and meet our rescue dogs. Ultimately, only you can decide whether one of our dogs is right for you.
