Jan Lewis

Founding Director responsible for AZ and CO adoptions and APWGSPR Treasuer

We became GSP people in 2011 with the adoption of our first GSP, Riley, which was totally by luck. My husband wandered into our Wal-Mart during a local shelters adoption event and found her. When I arrived a few minutes later, I knelt down beside this beautiful GSP, she put her paws on my knees and leaned into my chest as if to give me a hug.  A few minutes later, I took her home! She has taught us every day since then why GSPs are such an amazing breed!

 

We have 2 GSPs now, foster failure of the best kind and 2 mixed breed dogs. I have been in rescue since 2013. In my professional life I am an Engineer for a large Communications Company.  I am a native to Colorado. I have been married to my husband for 23 years. I love our house in the country, because it provides enough open space for our dogs to run. I love going to the gym, camping, fishing, hiking, and pretty much anything outdoors.
