Arrival Story: They tell me I'm famous! I'm one of the Missouri 75. To hear more about the MO 75, please visit http://web.me.com/msalyers/GSP_Res cue/Home.html. Yep, that's me on the main page! To make a long story short, my former "owner" set fire to his property. Me and about 199 other dogs were running loose on the farm until this people came and took us away. I was very scared, but these people seemed nice. I got lots of food and water. Then I got on this BIG truck with 2 other GSPs from my farm and LOTS of other dogs. We ended up in NJ, I'm told. That's where I met my foster mom and many other nice people from EGSPC Rescue. Now I have a wonderful, warm foster home with good food and I get lots of love!
Bio: For lots of info about Phoenix, visit his blog at http://egspcrpphoenix.blogspot.com . Phoenix was adopted to a wonderful family. After he was diagnosed with diabetes insepidus, they decided they did not want to commit to his treatment and he was sent back to rescue. This disease is quite rare and is treated with medication everyday to keep Phoenix happy and healthy. There are several treatment options that are affordable for the average family. If you can give Phoenix a forever home and support his care throughout his lifetime, please contact Eastern GSP Rescue. This young boy is a LOVER! Don't let his disease scare you away! All he wants is a loving home where he can curl up with you at night.
