Adoptable German Wirehaired Pointers


11 year old Jayley is looking for a forever family and we believe a home without other dogs. She was found by her current owners back in November very emaciated. They took her in and she’s been good with people and their small dog. This week, she escaped the yard and tangled with another dog... and this wasn’t the first time this has happened. The owners original thought was to put her down yesterday. With the help of several rescues yesterday we were able to talk to the owner and share our OWNER RELEASE program which is of no cost to the owner. They have agreed and would like to keep her until a family would like to adopt her since they’ve had her for a very short time. 

If you’re able to give Jayley a loving home and Lee a close watch on her outside so she doesn’t wander off, we believe she’d make a great pet.

Hank is looking for his forever home.  He has a very high prey drive and love to be active.  If interested in adopting Hank, 
Ziggy, a beautiful, typical 3 year old female GWP living in Seattle with foster, Chris, and is ready to find her forever family.  

Ziggy is a lovely dog, with typical GWP high energy who  crates when you tell her to, knows basic commands, and does well with  other GWPs.

This is what her foster, Chris, would describe as her perfect home. 

"Her perfect home has to be active, the people need to be the alpha, able to handle her when meeting other dogs. I think she's best with a male dog and the other dog/s can't be dominant or aggressive in any way. No cats or small animals. Probably best with older children."

Benjamin and Buttons are available for adoption.  Benjamin needs a home with children.  He's wonderful with this little boy in his foster home.  

Both will make great family pets and are good with children.

​Jolene is located in NC and is in foster care.  She is seriously underweight at 40 pounds. Estimated age is 7. She is very sweet and well 

Her foster shared the following.... "She's been to the vet, had a bath, stopped by the pet store and met a few kids, adults and dogs (trail wash for all), sat in the kiddie pool, took a few grass baths, met the resident boys and surveyed the property. I seriously doubt she's ever been in a house before and it's a little unsteady on stairs, but she has very little rear end muscle mass. The vet tech said a week off tlc at my house and a couple baths and she'll be a new dog."

“Puck” in Texas, will be pulled from the Bryan David Shelter on Monday by a temporary foster. Puck just turned 10 and is HW negative and UTD on shots. He previously lived with another female and male GWP. All 3 were surrendered by the family when the elderly owner needed long term hospital care. If interested in fostering or fostering to adopt to give this sweet senior a home please complete our application found on our website. 

Also, please help spread the word that we have an owner release program.... no charge to the owner. Please don’t let someone take their GWP to a shelter. This guy was on the euthanize list.... and that could have been avoided with better understanding about all that our rescue does for German Wirehaired Pointers.

My name is Otto, or as my foster dad calls me, Mr. Serious. I'm five years old, and am a big and powerful male GWP. I was turned into the shelter with Lexie and adopted by a family that had a Rottweiler, and she and I didn't get along. Two weeks later, I went to my foster home. At my foster home, I've lived with two other GWP's, male and a young female.  

I can be kind of grumpy, and my foster parents are working on making sure I use nice words in the house. my foster Dad thinks that I'm just a grouch. Wherever I go needs to have a strong personality to match. Since I don't like being surprised and I’m not always sure about other dogs, my ideal home wouldn't have little kids or other dogs, but older kids or teenagers would probably be fine. The young female (Lexie) that lives here can be annoying but sometimes she goads me into forgetting my stoicism and romping around the house with her. I'm good at sharing the food bowl and all the toys. I'm calm, and even headed around the house. When you approach me, my tail starts to wag, and I smile, then I sit up and let you rub me. I love giving you kisses and will try and nibble on your chin if you let me.  

While I need exercise like any GWP, I'm not hyperactive at all. While I'm not particularly well trained, I listen well and am cooperative. My foster family trusts me alone and out of the crate if the other dogs aren't around. I don't jump, I don't run away and I like my crate too. My foster family thinks that with the right training, I could be a hunter, if you want to do that, but I'd also be happy just being your (very serious) guy.
