Adoptable German Wirehaired Pointers
All of the dogs on this page are available for adoption. Dogs are moved to our adopted dogs page as soon as they find their furever homes. Please contact the person listed under the dog's information and pictures. This is the foster home and they can start the adoption process for you and give you more information on the dog. If there is a note that says NO CATS, the dog has been tested with cats and will not be allowed in a home with cats. If there is no note, it doesn't mean the dog is good with cats, just that they haven't been tested with cats.
***Please note that the dogs below the red line are not yet ready for adoption. They are currently in foster care and will become available when they have had the appropriate amount of training and have been proclaimed healthy. Some just have training issues, some have treatable health issues, such as allergies or heartworms. Please feel free to donate to their causes, as treatment isn't free :) Some of them may be waiting for more permanent foster situations also, so don't hesitate to ask if you think you can help out. And by all means if you want to get on the list to be considered for adoption on one of them, just let us know.
Scruffy has had a very rough road so far, but he is well on his way to recovery and is expected to be back to full health within the next month. Scruffy has battled pneumonia, heart worms, intestinal worms, and very poor weight. He will finish his heartworm treatment just before Christmas and should be ready to start taking applications for his adoption shortly after. Scruffy is currently fostering at Blue Line Kennel, but we would love to move him to another foster as soon as he receives his final heartworm treatment on DEC 23rd. If you are interested in fostering this very special boy, please contact us.
Scruffy is a very friendly boy, who loves people of all sizes and other large breed dogs. He is housebroken, crate trained, and just loves to be loved on:) He is NOT good with small dogs or cats, as he has a very high prey drive. Scruffy is being fostered in NC.

"JUST BEGINNING HIS JOURNEY
ON THE ROAD TO GOOD HEALTH"
Deuce is an owner release. Sadly his
owners bit off more than they could
chew when they got this guy. Deuce
came from a back yard breeder, who
is breeding dogs with no registration
papers and no health clearances. We
beg that people avoid purchasing a
dog from a breeder who is not reputable.
Deuce's previous owners purchased
the dog very cheap, but had no idea
of the medical expenses they would
incur after their initial purchase.
They are a family on a very tight
budget, but soon learned that saving
money on the purchase of the dog
isn't always the best way to go. When it became apparent that they could not afford the care that Deuce needed to be healthy, they asked the breeder if they could return him. The breeder did agree to take Deuce back, but made it clear that he would just put him to sleep.
Deuce's owners thought that he suffered from severe allergies, but when they told us the symptoms we suspected differently. When Deuce arrived to me in NC, I promptly took him to the vet within minutes of his stepping foot off the transport. Deuce was diagnosed with a very low thyroid (as we had suspected) and lyme disease. He may have allergies, but those symptoms could be just from the low thyroid. Only time will tell. Deuce has a very long road to recovery. He is currently here at Blue Line Kennel in Waxhaw, NC and will remain here until we are certain of the extent of his health issues and whether or not he will make a full recovery. Please follow this site for updates on his progress. Deuce is being fostered in NC.

"SCRUFFY" - 3 year old liver and white neutered male
"DEUCE" - 1-1/2 year old neutered liver and white male
Max was found in the desert when he was about 1 year old. He is very caring and respects all other animals and humans. He enjoys human and canine company, but looks to humans for most companionship. Due to his first year of life, he is not very secure. He does not like to be left alone and on three occasions in his 8 years has become destructive. He is less anxious when left alone now, but does become agitated sometimes if left for a longer period. Max does not take well to crating and will find a way out of any crate we have tried. He is shy of thunder and fireworks and becomes agitated when he is in crowds of people and obviously wants to get away from them.
Max does hunt birds though his pointing skills are nil, he will spot and retrieve quail and dove. He has not been exposed to pheasant or ducks. He is not gun shy and gets quite excited at the sound of guns being loaded and shot. He starts looking for birds when he hears reports. Max is more of a casual bird hunter like me.
We are becoming full time RVrs’, that life style will not suite Max. There will be many times he would be left alone when he cannot accompany us due to rule and regulations.
Max would be a perfect companion for an active person who can spend a lot of time with him. He is not needy and demands attention, he just wants to be around people. He rarely barks, is very obedient and has a strong desire to please. We have grown to love him very much and if there was any other way we would not give him up.
Please contact us if you are interested in him, he will make a great addition to the right family.

Seeker is very good in the house. No accidents, and he lets you know when he has to go outside. He is calm in the house, and is good with one long walk a day. He sleeps on the bed, but would be okay with his own bed. He loves people and loves to ride in the car. He has been left alone in the house and did not cause any damage. Just wants to hang out with you. He has not been around any cats or other animals. Seeker is being fostered in MN.

Spumoni, aka “Spoony,” as we have affectionately nicknamed him, is a very sweet outgoing guy. He spent a couple months in the shelter in Illinois, as we had several failed transport attempts due to weather and other unforeseen problems. But, at last he has arrived in NC and we are really enjoying him. Spoony has been friendly to everyone he has met and seems to like other dogs when on leash, but when off leash he "does not play well with others," so is best suited for a one dog home.
He is currently
in training with
us, as he
fully that he
has to listen,
but he is a
and is learning
Spoony is being
fostered in NC.

"WILLIE" - 8 year old liver & white neutered male
Willie is very well behaved in the house and outside off leash. He comes when called and is also conditioned to an e-collar. His previous owner said he has a lot of hunting experience. He loves to retrieve and seems to have a very curious nose. He is a leaner and likes to cuddle and snuggle. He gets a long with dogs (males & females). He also rides well in the car. He is an all around sweet boy and should fit into a home pretty easily. Willies is being fostered in MN.
