Posted Breed: German Shorthaired Pointer (short coat). Danica is a darling senior! Meet Dear Danica! This 10 year old distinguished gal has the spunk of a pointer without the extended battery life that most of the young ones have. She enjoys both canine and feline family members and loves to make new friends, to join in and play! Danica is super content hanging out with people at home, but can also stay on her own while her family is at work. She enjoys walks with no pulling on her leash and is comfortable sleeping in her crate through the night. Getting her chin and ears petted is one of her favorites. This beautiful tail wagging lady would love to be settled in with her forever family.

More About German Shorthaired Pointer Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: German Shorthaired Pointer (short coat). Nala is an awesome young GSP girl! Meet pretty Nala! This absolutely adorable 7 month-old GSP girl has a bit of an interesting story – she’s missing one of her back feet. She was born without the foot, and true to her GSP nature, doesn’t seem to care one bit. She romps around and is a go, go, go kind of girl! Some of that go needs to be refined by her forever home. Nala will benefit from a home where she’ll get all the exercise she needs as well as some continued work on her training. But she has a great foundation so far! She is crate trained and sleeps in there through the night, and walks nicely on leash with a harness. She also will need continued socialization and training with other dogs to learn the right way to be BFFs with fellow canines. Nala is seeing a specialist to evaluate options for her missing back foot. We’ll update this space soon! In the meantime, if you think Nala could be the right fit for your family, please apply! Status: Available pending appt with veterinary specialist for foot eval Location: Sacramento area, CA Adoption $: 360.00 with a $50.00 refund upon completion of a basic positive-reinforcement training class from a trainer on our training list, or approved by us in advance.
