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). Daisy is a beautiful, spunky GSP girl! Hi everybody! They call me Miss Daisy or just Daisy for short. Nice to meet you! What you need to know about me: first and foremost, I love playing ball. I’m what you might call a Ball Fanatic. I love playing ball so much and can be entertained for hours doing so! I also really love my people. I love them so much that I just want to always be with them. I’m working on being less worried when they’re not around, especially when I’m in the crate. That place is still a little scary to me, but I stayed in there for 4 hours all by myself the other day! I also don’t mind hanging in the yard for awhile on my own – lots of good smells to check out. Oh, and did I mention I like running on the treadmill? I run on it for 20 minutes twice a day and it gets me nice and tired. When I’m not playing in the backyard, I like to play with stuffed bones and food toys while I take a little rest. I’m also working on training every day and learning so much! I’m looking for my next home. They say I can go to a foster home, or even a foster home where my people are looking for their next forever dog and think I might be a match. I think I’d like my next home to be one where someone is home most of the time and where I will get a lot of exercise and continued training. And if you’ve got other dogs, let’s talk. All these nice rescue people will help with the transition and make sure they provide lots of help and support. I’m hoping my next family will commit to helping me be the best dog I can be! In return, I will give them all the love I have to give. I’m looking forward to meeting you and showing you just how much of a loving dog I am! Status: Available for foster to adopt. Please email foster@norcalgsprescue.org if interested.

      Posted Breed: German Shorthaired Pointer (short coat). Thelma and Louise are double the love! Thelma & Louise will steal your heart and are double the love! They are sisters with a special bond. Louise is the fearless one; but she is also the blind one. She will happily charge across the yard in pursuit of the critter she has sniffed out but otherwise she sticks right to Thelma's heels. Thelma is the caretaker, always there to help her sister navigate back in the dog door and around all the household furniture. The two sisters' favorite pastime is to follow their foster dad around wherever he goes. All he has to do is simply say their name and their tails go crazy! When he comes home from work, the two of them are right there on his heels wagging their tails waiting to for his affection. Most importantly, Thelma and Louise are extremely affectionate, learn very quickly, completely ignore the resident cats, and give the grumpy house dog her space. Do you have room in your heart for double the love? 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 Thelma and Louise have been up to, check out their posting in the Available Foster Dogs section: http://norcalgsprescue.org/category/available-dogs/our-foster-dogs/.

      Posted Breed: German Shorthaired Pointer (short coat). Tyler is a goofy, fun boy! Meet Tyler this Sunday, April 1st 1-4pm at his open house in Cupertino, CA! RSVP for more details. He can’t wait to see you there! Tyler is a goofy 3 year old mix who we rescued from a shelter in Fresno. He loves being around people, is well-behaved and walks great on leash! Tyler’s favorite things, aside from loving on his people, are running around outside and car rides — he’d be the perfect running and errand partner for someone! Tyler is house trained, sleeps on a dog bed all night without a peep, and loves to please his humans. He’s a very loyal guy who really would love to find his forever people! Tyler loves people so much that he does get a little worried when left alone, but he’s working on it and does well in his current foster home when left in the house for a few hours. With some patience and love, we think he’ll improve even more over time. Tyler is extremely trainable and would love to find a home that wants to continue that training to help him thrive. In fact, training is so important to Tyler that the he will come with 6 months of training sponsored by the rescue for his forever home.

He’s currently accepting applications for a foster to adopt home and would love to meet you! Status: Available Location: San Francisco Bay Area, CA Adoption $: Sponsored!

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: German Shorthaired Pointer (short coat). Rolf is a handsome young fella! Rolf is such a handsome dog! While he can be a little uncertain at first, a little time and lots of belly rubs and he'll be in love! After living his first few years outside in a kennel, he's still getting used to new people and situations, but has shown a lot of progress and will continue to thrive in the right home. He is fearful of other dogs and would do best in a home as a solo canine. Rolf is a dream on leash, is house trained and can spend 6 hours on his own at home. He also has picked up lots of commands thanks to the work of his foster home - sit, stay, down, touch, paws up, come, and look. When he's not proving how smart he is, his favorite things are snuggling, sunbathing, and playing keep-away with his toys. Rolf is ready to find the home that will give him plenty of time, patience, and a lot of love to help him gain his confidence.

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.

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!
