Posted Breed: Pointer. Speckles..."Specs " is a beautiful black and white pointer. Specs is very loving and likes to cuddle with you at night. He can be timid in new settings and around lots of people, but is a very friendly pup once he warms up to you and feels safe. So a loud busy house or neighborhood may not be best suited for him. He is very active and loves to run out in the field looking for birds. He lives with 7 other sporting breed dogs and loves to play with them. Spec a doodle is one handsome boy that deserves to be loved and space to run and play.

More About 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: Weimaraner. There's nothing scary about this "grey ghost" Boo has all the classic good looks and personality that make Weimaraner's so loveable. In keeping with the typical drives Weims possess, Boo requires a home free from small furry critters like kitties, bunnies, loose gerbals, etc. Boo loves to go for walks and runs. He has been substantial distances running and is a great jogging companion. Boo loves to cuddle and is a great pal on car rides. Dog parks are not his thing and he prefers to choose his hang out buddies. Once he is properly introduced he does great with his new friends. Boo has basic obedience and even knows a trick or two. If you are lover of Weims and have the time and activity level to provide for Boo, he would love to visit with you!

      Breed: German Wirehaired Pointer
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Denton, TX
      Posted Breed: German Wirehaired Pointer. Moonshine is a sweet and energetic typical young German Wirehaired Pointer. He retrieves balls and dearly loves toys! He does well in his crate, uses the dog door/potties on command, and rides well in the car. He walks well on a leash with appropriate equipment, will stay off of furniture (if you wish), or will be right up there with you (if invited). Moonshine will be most successful in an active home, with breed specific experience. If you are looking for sweet companion, and possibly, a running partner, Moonshine is your guy!

      Breed: German Wirehaired Pointer
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Denton, TX
      Posted Breed: German Wirehaired Pointer. Love his gentle, soulful eyes, and adorable fuzzy face? Gus is currently only available for adoption or meeting families that meet very specific criteria. Breed experience as adults or significant training experience No small children Experience with special needs dogs Patience to help Gus adjust through transition Preferrably a female with good leadership qualities Ability and a committment to provide appropriate physical and social stimulation. Gus came to us VERY shut down and emaciated. We have spent many months working with him to get him feeling good physically, and also socially; as the two are interdependent for many dogs. Our animal welfare team is overseeing his care and progress. After a tremendous amount of time and effort GUS has made great progress and is an active social part of his foster home. However following some difficulty with transitioning to new environments, and changes in routine, further medical work-up was chosen. Unfortunately, it gave us both good and bad news for Gus. The good news is that it has helped us tremendously in understanding what impacts Gus's behavior and hesitancy in new scenarios, the bad news is that all that can be done, is to love him and help him patiently though the situations. Gus has a rapidly progressing form of PRA or Progressive Retinal Atrophy. http://www.akcchf.org/canine-health/your-dogs-health/disease-information/progressive-retinal-atrophy.html This condition will most likely result in total blindness for Gus. But Gus who is otherwise very healthy, also has many wonderful loveable qualities that we believe make him deserving of hope and a second chance at his own forever home. Gus is the classic German Wirehaired Pointer - a bit aloof but not unfriendly toward strangers; he is slow to trust, but will be a loyal and affectionate companion for just the right family! Gus is active, goofy, and playful. Gus enjoys snuggling and running equally. Gus loves his foster brothers and sisters. He can be protective of his home and premises which is not uncommon for a GWP raised as Gus was, but this is manageable with an appropriate committment to leadership. If you love his gentle, soulful eyes, and adorable fuzzy face and think you are interested in giving Gus a chance, send us an email and we would be happy to discuss a meeting!

      Breed: Labrador Retriever
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Denton, TX
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever. Rio could be the poster child for the Labrador breed... Rio could be the poster child for the Labrador breed - he is a stunning bloock headed boy. Once you get past his good looks, you find he also has the best characteristics of the breed - he is affectionate, wants to be near you, is non reactive to other dogs and just seems to get along with everyone (but we don't know about cats). He is big and strong; almost 80 pounds of pure muscle. With all his good qualities, the one thing he is lacking is basic obedience skills. When he first arrived at his foster home, he pulled on his leash, didn't know sit, and barged through the door like a bull in a china shop. He has learned sit, is walking better with a gentle leader, but still wants to barge through the door. We are working on his manners but a commitment to obedience training and good exercise is an absolute must for the family who adopts him.

She knows some commands and has greatly improved on her leash walking. As you would expect she loves bath time and car rides.

      Location: Denton, TX
      Posted Breed: English Setter. Hi, My name is Bart. Foster mom says the best descriptive word for me is "chill." I do puppy things like chewing on toys and am learning how to potty outside but most of the time you will find me at your feet enjoying time with you playing with a toy or wanting to play. My human foster siblings (ages 6 and 11) adore me and foster mom says that I am great with kiddos but like any puppy sometimes I just get a little "nippy." I enjoy playing outside and have even figured out that planes fly overhead. I have a big foster brother (lab/German shepherd mix) and we get along great, I like to play and run and jump with him and follow him wherever he goes...I love older dogs! Mom says I am a super cuddle bug when I am tired and most nights I end up falling asleep next to her or in her arms. I do sleep in my kennel at night but am an early riser (6:30 with the family activity). I am so excited to find my family and can't wait to live life with them!

      Posted Breed: English Pointer. What is NOT to love about Scout-a-Bout? Scout aka Scout-a-Bout is a sweet young male English Pointer with long legs and lots of energy! He loves to run outside, but can be calm in the house. Scout is a fun-loving, very friendly, happy-go-lucky boy. He gets along very well with everyone - dogs and people of all sizes. He is cat friendly as well. He really does best in a large setting with plenty of room to run after birds, butterflies, and crawly things - and other dogs to play with. Scout very much LOVES fetching balls, his favorite game. Rarely do you see him without a ball in his mouth. Scout is a good boy on a leash, understands basic commands, and wants to please. This cute boy has a sweet face that you gotta love, and a fun disposition to go with it. He is ONE GREAT PUP that the whole family can enjoy, and very much loved by many that have had the privilege to know him. Scout would love to meet someone who will appreciate his goofy nature and new skills and help him along as he grows into just an awesome Pointer! Visit us on Facebook for more photos of Scout!

      Breed: Labrador Retriever
      Sex: Male Male

      Location: Denton, TX
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever. You won’t find sweeter chocolate than this! Yukon is a 4-year-old chocolate Lab with a history. Yukon joined our program a year ago after being hit by a car and left to suffer from his injuries. His outward wounds healed but the bone fractures and muscle damage remained, making walking painful and difficult. He has since undergone two corrective orthopedic surgeries, one to repair a hip and another to repair knee muscles, as well as extensive physical therapy. Yukon now moves comfortably and enthusiastically! Watching Yukon play, you would never know he once lived in constant pain. He loves to run, play ball and go for walks. But he’s not always a dog of action; he is also a world-class napper! He loves his dog bed and has been seen sneaking onto the couch to cuddle. Yukon just wants to be close to his people and loves physical affection. He’ll lean against your legs, step on your feet and give love nudges when seeing you after a long absence (like returning from the next room). He does great with children, gets along well with other dogs, large and small, and even likes cats! He’s as sweet as they come!
