Rescue Me ID: 14-07-18-00073Rufus (male)

Pointer Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    My name is Rufus. I'm believe to be a Pointer/Lab mix and roughly 5.5 to 6 years old. According to the shelter I was abused by my previous owners so my hearing is not quite there. My current owners have had me for 4.5 years, but in the past 6 months hours have changed so my owners are not home for long periods of time. I'm great with their 1 and 5 year old and never have snapped at anyone. I love to run and roam around in a big yard or go for walks which I can't do very often because my owners live in a condo and aren't home as much to give me long walks like they use to. My owners would like to find me a new home with a yard and someone who ... (Read More)is around more to take care of me. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-07-03-00245Yoshi (male)

Pointer Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Yoshi is a one year old sweet, athletic pointer mix. His black & white easy to care for coat & handsome head bring compliments each time he meets new people. Yoshi loves people & dogs; he would very much like to have a home with a dog his size with whom he could romp in a fenced yard. He stands about 24 inches at the shoulder & weighs about 52 pounds; thus, a need for outside, safe play area. He is smart & learns new behaviors easily. Yoshi has been working on sit, down, come, stay, threshold behaviors, & heeling. Having spent the first 7 months of his life in a shelter, Yoshi is still learning how to live in a house with people & their ... (Read More)customs; for example he will chew if left unattended. Because Yoshi is an active, fast moving dog, it would be best for family members to be over 9 years of age; simply because he can knock smaller children down. He loves to walk on a leash & retrieve balls & toys. So an active family that has a runner or someone that walks on a daily basis would be ideal. As an excitable, joyful dog, Yoshi will need to continue to work on his obedience behaviors such as settling when people pet him. He is so happy and excited to greet people that he can jump or wiggles so much he has a hard time sitting for pets. He does settle down but needs reinforcement that sitting will get the desired 'pets' and not jumping. His sweet, energetic personality & desire to be with his people will make him an enthusiastic, loyal companion. German Shorthair Pointer owners have said that GSP's tend to mature at a later age'|they are puppies in a big body for a longer time than other dog breeds'|..but wonderful, wonderful family dogs. With the right family, Yoshi will be no exception! Yoshi's adoption fee is $295 and includes his puppy shots, rabies vaccination, fecal test, deworming, micro chipping, HW preventative, frontline, 30 days of shelter care insurance, and his first vet visit at one of our participating vets, (Less)

Pointer Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    She is the most free spirited soul. No food aggression and willing shares all toys. She is now housebroken when she has to go out she will stand at the back door so one needs to be alert to this as she doesn't bark or paw the door. She loves to play, loves kids although no children in my house the neighbors have 3 children ages 7,5 and 3. They come over to my yard to play with her. If they are in their yard she will stand at the fence and just want them. She is the right size since she will not knock the kids over with a wagging tail. She doesn't nib when playing just loves life and everyone. She likes to have her belly rubbed and wants to ... (Read More)cuddle with kisses. She does not get on any furniture nor has she tried. Somewhere she may have had someone that was mean to her. If you stand over top of her and raise a hand she will immediately lay down to submission stance. She is getting better since she is learning that no one will hurt her. She stays in her crate while I am at work and has never had an accident, she loves to get her snacks which would be granola milk bones. She understands the word no and will stop doing something she shouldn't be. She loves to be outside but does not stay outside when no one is there she loves her AC. At night she is in the house as well and sleeps in the bedroom with the rest of us. Her adoption fee is $295 and includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, up-to-date on shots, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email Kathy for an application at caseysdogs@yahoo.com. Please consider becoming a foster home while you search for your new best friend. We need foster homes - pounds are overflowing with puppies and adult dogs that are at-risk and need help. We can only rescue as many as we have foster home commitments. Fostering is a rewarding experience for your family. (Less)

Pointer Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Are you an athletic person who loves a nice solid outgoing dog? Tide is a very handsome boy, weighs about 70 pounds, about 1 year old, heartworm negative and current on all shots and health care. He is a very solid, fun loving, energetic dog who can wear out any dog here playing, except a pit mix we had who is also higher energy. At the same time when crated he is perfectly well behaved, quiet and calm. He loves to sniff about and seems to have potential for a search and rescue dog or something to use his skills to advantage. Plus he is a very confident dog and loves to hop in the car, or go anywhere you want to go which would be perfect for ... (Read More)a working dog. He is crate trained, never potties in the crate or kennel. He was rescued from a very high kill shelter in AL, where many dogs never make it out. I seen his face and just didnt want him cut short when hes still a pup with SO much potential! He will need exercise to be a good dog, either playing with another dog (med or large he loves to rough house with them!) or jogging, agility, tagging along a bike. This dog is athletic and needs an active family, no couch potatoe here (although after play time I am sure he would love couch time!!) He knows sit and he loves attention. His favorite thing other then playing is to flop over on his back so you can rub his belly! He wants to meet anyone who has visited and so many people have been very impressed with how handsome he is, but they were wanting a small dog. I havent worked with him much at all but he does learn fast! Please email for more photos he is solid built and acts very much like a lab! Contract and vet reference required to adopt. A friend has sponsored half of his adoption fee of $200. to help him find a great forever home! (Less)

Pointers need to be with people and need to be socialized as puppies. Some Pointers can be skittish or aloof. Pointers need plenty of exercise and activity to be happy and healthy.
