Rescue Me ID: 16-11-30-00406Buddy (male)

Pointer Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 

    Hi I'm Buddy, and I hope to be YOUR buddy! I'm a really sweet, 60lb, 4 year old boy who's not been treated very nice. I had a family not long ago, then they decided to move to a new home and they didn't take me with them. I was just left all alone outside my old house. Thankfully some kind neighbors really liked me and have been caring for me until I can find a new, true forever family. My temporary family says I do great with their dogs, and kids, and I'm a really friendly boy. They wish they could keep me, but I just can't resist chasing their kittys, and they have lots of kittys, so they think a home with no kittys would be best for me. ... (Read More)Kitty chasing is my downfall I guess, but I'm good with all sizes of dogs! Even the little ones. If you'd like to meet me, please email my friends at My friends will get me up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and neutered if you're interested in adopting or fostering me! (Less)

Pointer Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Hi!! I'm Leia and I'm a CHAMPION CUDDLER and KISSER!! I may be middle-aged, but with life comes experience. I'm house trained, well-mannered, walk great on a leash, and am very well behaved in the house while my guardian family is at work. I have a doggie door to a fenced backyard, but can also stay indoors during the day without a doggie door. I have been to daycare several times, and the camp counselors say I'm very affectionate and very adoptable!! I'm also good at the dog park. I L-O-V-E walks, hikes and car rides!! I'm even good when having my bath!! My favorite thing is food, so I need someone to help me keep my girlish figure. ... (Read More)Unfortunately, I've had a tough life. My guardian rescued me from a neglectful home. In three months, I've gone from nervous, submissive, and anxious, to playful, happy, and confident. I live with a two year old playful pup that has also helped me to become surer of myself. There are two other dogs in the family who visit and we all play well together. Because of my history, I need a consistent/loving environment, where I can feel safe. Discipline/training must be gentle. I'm pretty good at 'sit' and 'come' and very good at listening to gentle correction. I can be an only dog, or would do well living with a dog my size with an easy-going temperament. My ideal home would be an empty nest looking for a loving girl to share walks, hikes, car rides, etc. I'm good with kids, but need them to respect my food, toys, and bones. My only negative behavior is that I can be a bit vocal when I get excited, BUT my foster mom says I'm getting much better. I can be frightened by loud noises (thunder, big trucks, etc.) but am getting better with that, too. I may have a few extra pounds around my middle (and a few years of experience), but I make up for it in awesome doggie kisses. You won't find a more loving, well-behaved girl!! My guardian, Kathy, would love to hear from you and answer any questions you have. She will also send more photos, if you like, and will be happy to meet and talk. My guardian family would keep me, except that they already have the expense of three dogs in the family. Won't you please take me home? (Less)

Pointer Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Ben is a very sweet dog and very good with children and adults and other animals. The problem is that our yard is apparently not big enough for what he needs/wants and keeps escaping and running around the neighborhood. We don't want him to end up getting hit by a car or attacked by a wild animal while he is out. I will provide more pictures if requested.

Pointer Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Spots is a 3/4 Year old possibly Pointer/Dalmatian mix looking for his forever home. He came in from a high kill shelter and was heart worm positive. He is healthy now and ready to go to his forever home. He is very sweet, will lean on you to get some love and rubs. Dominate with other dogs, needs to be only dog. Untested with cats but based on personality do not think it would be a good idea.

Pointer Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Tux was rescued from a local kill shelter when his time was running out. He is around one year old and is a Labrador Retriever mix. He weighs in around 55-60 lbs. Tux was adopted, but was returned because his energy level was too much for their children. Therefore, we are looking for a home for him with an active family, or ideally, with a second energetic dog. Tux has such a sweet personality and is just a great boy. He does have a shy personality, but loves belly rubs and enjoys being with people. He needs an owner who is willing to work with him, specifically on walking on leash. It's still pretty new to him and he is unsure of it. This ... (Read More)loving boy is ready to move on to his forever home. There will be an application, small adoption fee, and contract. Please contact us if you are interested in adopting Tux! (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Pointer in North Carolina
    Pointer Dogs can make good pets in North Carolina if they match your IifestyIe. The English Pointer is a proud, elegant hunting dog. Pointers are good with children and devoted to their families. 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. This breed is best for a home with lots of open land.
