For most of our dogs, the Ranch is a wonderful temporary home, but there are some rescue dogs that find it a frightening place. For those rescue dogs, we effort to place them in a Foster home where the environment is not as stressful.

TIPPY is one of those dogs. She has been in a foster home for a year now and she has grown from the 8-month old “out of control and scared of her own shadow” girl to a beautiful, 2+-year old with huge amounts of personality and curiosity. Although she’s made huge leaps, TIPPY still lacks a little confidence when meeting new people. With time and patience, however, TIPPY willingly adds new folks to her list of “trustables” and once her trust is earned the whole world opens up!

We are so thankful for our Foster families who help us so much with our dogs, especially those dogs that need a little extra patience and understanding. We are looking for that right family now who can provide TIPPY the loving forever home she deserves. Could you have the right home for TIPPY? Here’s a little bit more about her.

Clearly TIPPY is a beautiful GSD. She loves to play with other dogs, loves neighborhood walks and meeting new dogs, going to watch ball games, smelling all around the gardens and finding a nice cool lawn to lay on.

A perfect home for TIPPY would be a home with GSD experience and include a dog buddy who loves to play and a home environment where there isn’t a lot of people traffic coming and going.

This dog is new to the rescue. More information will be posted as it becomes available.

If you are interested in meeting this dog, please fill out our online application first. Contact us via email at The minimum adoption donation ranges from $300 to $400. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. Prior to placement, all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are usually microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis. Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
