It’s the day y’all have been waiting for, I’m finally ready to find my forever family. Hi for those that don’t know me I’m Kyle, but my foster family calls me Maverick and that’s what I listen to most days. I’m about 1 1/2 years old and I’m a liver and white German Shorthair Pointer. I’ve had a rough go of it in this short period of time. I’ve battled and beat heart worms, overcome a back injury and now recovering from my neuter but it’s all worth it to finally find my dream home.
I’m a sweet happy boy that just wants to play all day and sleep with my humans at night. I can be trusted out in the house; have zero anxiety and I love everyone once I get to know them. I’m still a puppy so will need continued training once I find my forever home. My foster mom says I’m one of a kind, she laughs when she says so I’m guessing that’s a good thing. I’m completely house trained and will go to the door when I want out. I can be trusted outside but my foster mom still goes out with me every single time. I’ve been getting curious about the fence, and she is constantly telling me off when I put my paws on it, I’m just being nosy it’s not like I’m gonna jump it but she’s the boss.
I love to carry toys around and I’ll tear them up, but I don’t eat them, and I never touch my human’s things. I will put my paws on the counter to be nosy, but I hear that off word so much that I’m sick of it, so I don’t bother most of the time anymore. I am kennel trained and I’m quiet as a mouse while I’m in it even though I’m rarely in it anymore. My bossy foster mom says it’s important to keep me use to it in case I ever have to stay at the vet which I did for my neuter and the vet said I was the best boy and just slept until surgery time and of course slept after thanks to those happy drugs they gave me.
I’m working on leash manners but will still need training as I’m so curious about the world. One thing I must have is a cozy cave, that’s where I prefer to sleep even though my foster mom doesn’t mind me in the bed, I just like my own space but it has to be a cozy cave, I don’t like those other beds. If the cozy caves are full of my foster siblings, my foster mom says I give her sad puppy eyes till she makes my foster siblings get out so I can get in. This helps me sleep through the night like a good boy.
I like car rides for the most part, but I do drool sometimes. I’m great at the vet, I’m growly when I’m on leash and meet other dogs but we are working on this, when I’m not restricted by a leash, I love everyone. I love to snuggle and hug my foster mom and my foster brother Fatty McFatterson is my best friend and I enjoy taking naps with him and snuggling with him so another dog in the house for me to play with would be ideal.
I’m a happy boy with no health issues or major behavioral issues. I am UTD on vaccines, neutered and microchipped so my adoption fee is $375.
I’m a fast learner that will make you laugh a lot with my silly behavior. If you think you would be a good fit for my forever family, please fill out an adoption application and email my foster mom Vicki at firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s still hard to believe this is the same dog. Pulled from a South Carolina shelter on July 3 after being found as a stray, and weighing just 43 pounds, this little firecracker has made the most remarkable transformation!
Radley is approximately two years old, and still very much a puppy. He’s calm for a GSP (note that doesn’t mean calm, just calm for a GSP!) and he’s on the smaller side for a male, at 54 pounds.
He would love a big brother or sister. He enjoys being a little brother. He has an independent streak, so having a sibling isn’t a must, but he likes having a partner in crime. That also means he can sometimes be a pesky little brother, squeezing himself in or snuggling up for a nap. A patient sibling could be a good role model for him.
A backyard to hunt critters. He respects a four-foot fence, and he immediately goes outside to check his favorite places for catching lizards. He keeps the yard clear of rabbits and squirrels and has mastered a brooding stare after they’ve long gone, just to make his point.
Affection. He wants all the love and pets. He’ll use his paw, climb right up in your lap, or stand over you to make it easy…in case you forget the task at hand. He likes to lean into you and be hugged. Really sweet as could be, but he’s shameless about it.
Consistent training. He’s maybe not the most ‘academic’, but he finally figured out how to sit (and does so proudly!). He’s very food motivated but is so excited by the treats he has a hard time focusing on anything else. He’s almost got ‘paw’ and ‘down’ and he’s worked hard on ‘come.’ He’s good in a contained area, but we don’t trust him for a second off leash at this point so recall work will need to be maintained in his new home.
Slow feeders. Found starving, he still has severe food insecurity. He eats his meals ridiculously fast (never once noticed his meds were right on top!), even with the slow feeder. He gets so excited to eat, he drools and tries to ‘help’ with food prep. He has incredible balance and will stand straight up on his hind legs to get a closer look at what’s being prepared, whether it’s for him or not. He shows no aggression, but nothing stays in his dish. He quickly works through puzzles and enrichment activities to get his food.
Radley has blossomed into a confident little man. He doesn’t appear to fear thunderstorms or loud noises. He’s gotten used to the vacuum. He has a prey drive and he’s made huge progress with the cat, but we aren’t ready to say he’s cat safe. He kennels well, although he will remind you it isn’t his favorite place to be. The few kids he’s met have loved on him and he soaks up every minute but no kids under the age of six, please. With his food insecurity, he’s very opportunistic. He doesn’t counter surf, and we work to deter begging, but he knows when someone is in the kitchen and is never far away. Leash walking needs a LOT of work, but he will make a great partner for someone willing to work with him.
He naps hard and sleeps through the night. Expert nose artist on all glass surfaces, he’s ready to get back to playing ball. He enjoys yak chews and marrow bones. He’s the best tv binge partner - even if he hogs the couch, he lets you control the remote. Rad’s a great snuggler, a goofball, a shadow, and a lover overall. Truly a diamond in the rough, he already shines, but with some polishing, Radley will really sparkle.
Radley is up to date on vaccines, neutered, and microchipped so his adoption fee is $375.
Radley can’t wait to meet you!
Hi Everyone! I’m Gus-like the lovable mouse in Cinderella. And my foster mom says if there is one word to describe me, it’s lovable. I want to go on walks with you, on car rides with you, to the office with you if that’s allowed, maybe have a romp in the back yard in the afternoon and then curl up for cuddles in the evening. My foster mom took me to the office and every meeting started late because I was soaking up the pets. Some people say GSPs are velcro dogs. I’m a superglue dog. I love love love my people.
I would do well in a home with one person who can take me lots of places or in a home with a few people who are relatively calm. Please no younger children.
Like my namesake, I’ve hit my fair share of snags. I am not a huge fan of other animals, but in a subtle way. I’m very calm until they get too close for comfort and then I make it abundantly clear that they are in my space. So I would prefer a home with no other pets. But I am okay with other animals from a distance. I’m not leash reactive and I remain calm unless they get too excited too close to me.
I was a rock star at Home Depot. My foster mom took me there and everyone could tell I was “in training” and I put on a show! I know how to wait, with, sit, come and I respond well to an e-collar. I would like a fenced in yard-mostly to keep other animals out. So the height of the fence is not of great importance. I’m also crate trained and house trained.
I love bones, a jolly ball, enrichment toys (like a kong wobbler or a snuffle mat), and I’m mostly looking for a soft place to land and spend my golden years. I’m eight years young and quite the catch if you ask me! I’m neutered, up to date on shots, heartworm negative, and microchipped. My adoption fee is $375. If you are here for all the loves and want to be my forever home, please fill out an application and email my adoption coordinator Cathy (Segsp.email@example.com)
My name is Duke and I am looking to fetch a family! I am a gorgeous big 5-year old boy with beautiful liver markings. I will fetch ALL DAY LONG. I would love a large chuck-it and plenty of the extra tough balls and a friend to throw them for me. I would like a large yard. Fencing required, but height of fencing is negotiable. I do respect the fence-particularly when used in conjunction with e-collar training, but I prefer and need supervision to make sure I don’t wander (those balls aren’t going to throw themselves!). I would do best with a family with e-collar experience or willingness to learn. My foster mom says I would make a great jogging partner. I do great on a gentle leader head collar and have a terrific gait and endurance. I love the water! I really enjoy when my foster mom gets the hose out and lets me play in the spray. If you have a pool and you’re willing to let me swim, I would love that too! I love a jolly ball and all of the enrichment activities my foster mom has done with me including the kong wobbler and the oversized snuffle mat! I ride great in a car and do very well in my kennel overnight. I am a bit vocal if I’m in there are people are up and about and having fun. FOMO is real! My foster mom took me all over town and even to work and I did great in public! I also love bath time and don’t even mind nail trim or ear wash time if you have a nice treat for me. I know how to sit and lay down and drop. I’m working on leave it and I have a really hard time with “stay” but I’m definitely trying! As I said, I am a big boy (about 80 pounds). My foster mom is not a short woman and when I stood on my hind legs to see what she was holding, we were eye to eye. So I could definitely knock smaller, less stable children over.I would love a home with older, sturdy children who are unlikely to get knocked over or hurt if I get excited. My foster mom recommends no children under 4 feet tall and the taller the better. My foster mom is going to give you some more details about me, but trust me, I’m a catch!
Duke is looking for an experienced or very coachable owner. He is more headstrong than a typical GSP. He is not reactive toward other animals from a distance and while leashed, but he is unpredictable in his interactions with other animals when they get too close for comfort. Therefore, he will be adopted out as an only pet for his safety and the safety of other animals. Duke is a very independently minded dog. He will succeed and thrive in an environment that is structured. He will do best in a home with consistent routines and not much variation in routine. We will be requiring an obedience course for Duke and his adopters to ensure you both speak the same language and are off on the right foot as you become a family. We will require proof of enrollment at the time of adoption. Duke is healthy, UTD on shots, microchipped, and neutered. His adoption fee is $475 with a $100 refund once you provide proof of completion of a basic obedience course.
If you think you’re Duke’s forever family, please complete the application and then email Duke’s foster mom, Sarah at adoptDuke.SEGSP@gmail.com.
