Hi, I’m Precious, a 3 year old solid liver German Shorthaired Pointer! I was rescued from a shelter in south Georgia by SEGSP Rescue in July and was heartworm positive. I’ve since been successfully treated and have been recovering and living in Thomasville, Ga with my foster family. I took a little time to warm up and was very scared of thunderstorms, fireworks and most loud noises when I first came into rescue. I have 2 canine foster siblings that have helped me gain confidence and they have really brought my playful personality out! I love being outside in my backyard, chasing squirrels and watching everything going on around in the yard. I do have a very high prey drive, which makes recall hard for me. I’m very fast and will follow my nose and will tune out my foster mom so a fenced in backyard is a must – but I do fine with my 4 foot fence. I have been around a lot of children because of my foster mom’s job, and I’m very gentle with them. The one cat that I’ve been around is not afraid of dogs and I’m pretty well behaved around her.
I love my life inside and have become quite a couch potato. I do love to run and explore and recently ran a 5K with my foster mom! I’m working on not pulling so much on the leash, but I just get so excited so there is some room for improvement. My tail never stops wagging – it wags when I meet new people, when my people come home, actually……..it pretty much wags all of the time! I love to cuddle with everyone and am working on learning boundaries with my cuddling. I love my food, although, I do have to be watched when I eat because I will eat any food that’s within my reach, whether I’m supposed to or not 😊
As most young GSPs, I have a lot of energy! I have a hard time being in a kennel, and have pretty serious crate anxiety. I have a kennel in my foster mom’s office that I like to stay in, as long as I’m not locked in there. I have found a way to break out of pretty much every kennel that my foster mom has put me in so that is a behavior that I need help with.
My adoption fee is $375 because I’m fully vaccinated, heartworm free, spayed and temperament tested. I’m such a loving dog and can’t wait for my own family to take me on adventures and give me a loving home! If you think you are that family, please fill out an adoption application, if you haven’t already, and email my foster mom, Susie at email@example.com.
