are there any Australia residents on this list? if so, would you mind contacting this GSP-experienced potential adopter from Tasmania? GSP Rescue received his application, but he didn't submit an email address, so i have no way of advising him that our organization is US-based. i have pasted in his application below and also the standard reply i append to overseas adopters. thanks!

Hello, Damien - thanks for considering adoption. Yours sounds like a lovely home for a dog in need. Regretfully, we are a U.S.-based organization, and we do not adopt overseas. But there are GSP breeders in Australia and New Zealand; perhaps one of them has a dog needing a new home. Here are some links you might try:
Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance. I wish you well in your quest for another family companion.
