My story

He’s one handsome boy, looking to share his senior years with a caring home. Tucker is sweet with a goofy personality. And even at 8 years old, he enjoys his outside time in the yard and on walks.

When he’s done hunting for critters, you’ll find him buried under the covers.

Tucker has chronic lymphocytic leukemia/lymphoma, but the vet thinks he still has a couple of years left to live and we want to find him a home who will spoil him! His new home only needs to monitor his lymph nodes for size and take Tucker to the vet to get his blood tested in 3 months, then in 6 months, and then annually.

He gets along well with his foster sister, but does need careful introduction to new dogs because at times he will want to play rough. He loves to be with people and would do best if his people are around most of the time. If you are interested in providing a loving and caring home for Tucker to rest and be comfortable, please apply today.

(Please note that we adopt primarily within Northern California and our minimum age for kids is 6)

If you'd like to see what Tucker's been up to, check out his posting in the Available Foster Dogs section: https://norcalgsprescue.org/available-dogs/. That's where you'll find all the latest info about all of our available dogs.

Their adoption process

1.

Submit Application

Complete our adoption questionnaire: https://norcalgsprescue.org/adoption-questionnaire/

2.

Interview

We’ll get in touch and set up a phone call to further discuss your application and what you are looking for in a GSP companion.

3.

Interview

If a GSP is identified as a potential match, we will put you in contact with the foster home so you can have a more detailed discussion.

4.

Meet the Pet

If the foster home and you agree that the dog continues to appear to be a good match, you will schedule a visit to meet the dog.

5.

Home Check

If after meeting the dog, everyone agrees he/she is a good fit for your family, we will schedule a home visit.

6.

Sign Adoption Contract

Once the home visit is completed and you are approved, we will ask you to complete an adoption agreement.

7.

Pay Fee

These monies help to defray some of the medical and other costs we incur while the dog is in our care. Pay online with your credit card.

Additional adoption info

Complete our adoption questionnaire on our website to start the adoption process. www.NorCalGSPrescue.org Please provide as much information as you can about your family, other pets, activity level, and why you are wanting to adopt a rescue GSP. Because almost all of our dogs come to us with unknown pasts, we don't adopt to families with children under 6. You will be called or emailed shortly after your application is received, usually within 3-5 days, to further discuss your application and what you are looking for in a GSP companion. We will also determine whether we currently have any GSPs that might be a fit for you.. If a GSP is identified as a potential match, we will have you contact the foster home to arrange a visit with the dog(s). The rescue dog will need to meet all members of the family, including other pets, at some point during the process. If after meeting the dog, everyone agrees he/she is a good fit for you, a home visit is next. The home visit may be in-person or virtual. Home visits are required before any dog leaves our rescue program. Once the home visit is completed and you are approved, we will ask you to complete an adoption agreement. If you do not agree to the stipulations in the agreement, we cannot adopt a dog to you. Please note that we reserve the right to deny anyone the ability to adopt any dog from our rescue program for any reason. All adoptions are at our sole discretion. Adoption donation: Rates vary from free to $410 depending on the age of the dog. These monies help to defray some of the medical and other costs we incur while the dog is in our care. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, current on vaccinations, heartworm and fecal checked and microchipped. Occasionally, a dog requires special vet care while in our program. We will provide you with the dog's veterinary records so you will be fully informed of any known medical conditions. Please refer to each dog’s posting on our website for the latest rate information.
