Rescue Me ID: 17-08-21-00247Keno (female)

Pointer Mix    Age: Young Adult

    This is from the people who adopted one & fostered the other for a year & now are asking us to re-home both Yuki & Keno....Hi Marli, The last date we can keep the dogs is August 16th. They have both been to the vet and are up to date on shots. We have used shots every 6 months for heart worm prevention. They each had their shot in July. Whether they should be kept together is a toss up. They get along great, play together, sleep together, and never fight but they are both high energy dogs and they feed off of each other's energy. I think that has been a big factor in not being able to train them. They get overly excited to the point where ... (Read More)they will climb all over each other and whoever else is around and can't be easily calmed down. Jeff has worked out of town most of the last year and that hasn't helped either. They really need somebody with strong authority working with them, especially if they stay together. We think they are in the 2-3 age range. Both use the dog door to go out when they want and have never had an accident in the house. ************************************************************************************** Here comes Keno. Keno is a female, lemon spotted pointer. She is in the care of Love Mutts Rescue. They gave the following information. Keno is learning leash manners. She takes treats gently, sometimes quietly and sometimes with excitement. She is very food motivated, so should do very well with training. Keno is very playful and loves to fetch. She likes Kongs with peanut butter or treats. A game of tug-of-war is fun. Tummy rubs are a favorite. She is quiet, and will be shy at first. Keno needs someone who will let her become comfortable in her new home at her pace. She is good with young children and other dogs. Keno enjoys riding in the car and going for walks. Keno is estimated to be between one and two years old. Keno is house trained, spayed, current on vaccinations and available for adoption. To meet Keno and learn more about her, contact Love Mutts Rescue at This sweet girl is waiting to be your new best friend! (Less)

Pointer Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament

    Georgia turned 3 approx Aug 15th. She weighs 40 lbs. She was adopted at about 5 mos of age from a rural GA shelter. Her family has 2 young children and a cat Georgia loves. The family also has an 11 y o female dog and she and Georgia have occasionally scuffled. Latest was over food dropped from table near older dog.

Pointer Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    This is King, a sweet, lovable, and goofy dog, who needs a new home. King's owners are gravely ill and cannot care for him. They asked us to foster him because they cannot bear to put him into a shelter. King needs and deserves a new fur-ever home. Here are some details: %BD%BD%BD'%BD Black & Tan Coonhound / Setter or Pointer mixed breed with a stunning black and rust colored coat! %BD%BD%BD'%BD 60 pounds; 21 inches tall at the shoulder. %BD%BD%BD'%BD Excellent health; up to date on all shots; neutered.

Rescue Me ID: 17-07-21-00108Trooper (male)

Pointer Mix    Age: Puppy

Personality: Average Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Trooper! Trooper has made an incredible transformation! Now that the scars of his past are behind him, he is ready and eager to find his perfect forever family. Trooper is approximately a year old and 70 lbs. He is low to medium energy and a very affectionate social butterfly! Trooper has made some great new dogie friends at his foster home, but he prefers slow proper introductions with any new 4 legged buddies. Trooper is not a fan of small dogs, but he LOVES kids! He has a 5 year old human sister he adores. Trooper is a pretty big guy so of course smaller children's laps aren't quite big enough yet ;) Trooper loves car rides, ... (Read More)but we must warn you, if you leave too much window down, he will try and hang out just to feel the wind in his hair. :) Trooper is house trained, and will settle down nicely in his crate with a treat. He loves going for walks to explore, you might even see him helping his foster dad shop at home depot. He loves to hang out in the yard and sun bathe, but he's also content being inside with the family curled up on a warm bed. Trooper is a gentle giant and truly believes he is a lap dog. He has a goofy personality and can always put a smile on your face. He is very treat motivated and eager to please! Trooper loves attention, and has so much love to give, he is so deserving of a loving family to call his own. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-07-03-00081Petey (male)

Pointer Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Petey is an adorable 5 year old pointer boxer mix. He has so many wonderful pointer qualities: smart, playful, super snuggly, great hunter, trains easily, pretty black spots... he wants to please you. He gets along very well with other dogs (like our chocolate lab in the photo) and with cats (we have 3). We're looking for a home for him that has other dogs. Petey really needs an alpha or several to teach and guide him. Our oldest dog is too old to play with him and is in the final stages of his life, and we are not in a position to get another dog right now. Petey is fearful of strangers and takes some time to warm up to new people due to ... (Read More)what we think was some abuse when he was younger. We have had him for 3 1/2 years and he's a wonderful dog, but we feel that he will be much happier and less anxious if he can be with other dogs who will lead him. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-05-27-00374Ash (male)

Pointer Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Ash is a super sweet boy came to PAWS as an owner surrender. His personality and behavior can best be described as playful, vocal, friendly, independent, affectionate, and laid back. He loves to play with people and other dogs and is very good at taking direction. Because he's a Pointer mix, he's an active dog, but not overly vocal. An excellent watchdog, Ash is protective of his property and will sound the alarm at anything out of the ordinary, but is not a nuisance barker. When he's playing with his canine foster buddies, he's playful and friendly. He's had limited contact with cats through a fence and just barks at them, so it's ... (Read More)unknown how he would interact with them. When riding in a car, he is calm and quiet. Ash is being fostered in a home with two small boys, ages 3 and 4 and he's very friendly towards them. Because of his size and energy, he could knock a small child over out of excitement so it would be recommended he be supervised around small children. Ash loves to play fetch and tug-of-war, enjoys long walks, and playing with kids. He's housebroken and walks nicely on a leash. Ash uses a crate, but doesn't really like it. He has really improved with his leash training and picking up commands quickly since being in foster. We recommend Ash go to a family who are experienced dog owners strong enough to handle a dog this size. Energetic and fun-loving, Ash is well suited to active homes and lifestyles where he'll be living inside as a member of the family and enjoying the same comforts they do. He'll need plenty of exercise to help channel his active body and mind into constructive pursuits rather than the destruction that can be brought on by a bored Pointer. We recommend consistent, ongoing reinforcement of 'training', and an hour or two a day of play, walks, or other exercise - the more active the better. He just wants to please and is looking for someone to connect with and love on! When all these things are in place, Ash will be a loyal and true friend for many happy years. (Less)

Pointer Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Gracie has a problem - she thinks everyone wants to play. The cats can approach her Mom to be petted but she thinks they are approaching her to play. She also thinks the pig wants to play and be harassed. And that would be a 'no' as well. She may not be able to see but she does know how to run and be happy. She has a funny personality and is just a sweet innocent little girl. Gracie is about 1 year old and was a stray puppy to her foster. Gracie's foster Mom has too many animals to care for Gracie's blindness in the proper way, so she wants to find another home where she will have special attention. She is adorable too! Gracie needs ... (Read More)a caring loving home where someone has the time to teach her new things because her Mom says she is very smart! Gracie will require a fenced yard to keep her safe and people who want to play and be harassed! (Less)

    Luke has a loving, sweet personality. He is very active and loves playing ball so much, he plays by himself. He would make a great agility dog, or running partner. He is high energy, but will stay quietly in his crate. He loves treats so should train easily. He was rescued from a very rural high kill shelter. Up to date on vaccinations, heart-worm negative, micro-chipped and on preventatives. He is trained on a PetSafe radio fence and does obey it. Good with other dogs, Previous owner said he was good with cats but there are none in his foster home. He does love to chase squirrels! Luke is about 50lbs, estimated age 2yrs. Luke would ...
