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. Status: Available Location: San Francisco Bay Area, CA Adoption $: 155 Weight: 55 pounds Age: 10 years Kids: 6 and up Other dogs: Ok with other dogs Cats: Yes Hunting: Unknown Our adoption process begins with our adoption questionnaire: http://norcalgsprescue.org/adoption-questionnaire/ (Please note that we adopted primarily within Northern California and our minimum age for kids is 6) If you'd like to see what Danica's been up to, check out her posting in the Available Foster Dogs section: http://norcalgsprescue.org/category/available-dogs/our-foster-dogs/.

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). Tobie is the cutest! No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you. Tobie really is that cute! This 1 year-old GSP boy is as goofy as he is handsome. His favorite thing is to be first in line for treats! He will require plenty of continued training and structure to be a happy addition to his forever home. He has lived with other dogs successfully, but will do best with a non-reactive dog as he has a tendency to guard high value items from fellow canines. If Tobie is the one you’ve been looking for, he’d love to meet you! (And give you lots of puppy kisses to say hello!)

      Posted Breed: German Shorthaired Pointer (short coat). Handsome Henri! Hello Henri! This charming and cute 1 year-old boy just landed in rescue. We’re working to get him well (see more info below on his medical issues) and he’ll be available for adoption soon. Handsome Henri is in need of your help! He contracted aspiration pneumonia and will need treatment for at least 30 days to get him well and ready for his next health obstacle – surgery on a chronic dislocation of his elbow. Poor Henri is enduring this all with a smile on his face, but he can’t wait until he feels better and can run and play. We don’t yet have an estimate for his treatment and surgery, but it will most likely be upwards of $2,000. Please consider donating to Henri’s medical fund to help him get the care he needs!
