Rescue Me ID: 15-07-11-00043Jack Sr. (male)

German Shorthaired Pointer    Age: Senior

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

    Jack may be grey but he has the energy of a much younger dog! He goes out of his way to greet everyone he met...adults, children, and other dogs. When he finds a stash of dog toys, he is like a kid at Christmas, pulling one after another out of the bin and happily playing with all of them. It's almost as if Jack is saying, 'so this is what life is supposed to be like! I'm so lucky to be able to enjoy every minute of it!' If any GSP deserved a great forever home, it's Jack. Jack is a super sweet senior gentleman (we think he's around 11) who enjoys napping near his favorite people after a little playtime with his toys or running around ... (Read More)the yard scouting for bunnies and squirrels. Jack is a tall boy who LOVES food (he will take advantage of unattended human food left within reach). He is very gentle and loves everyone he meets (dogs, cats, kids). Since Jack is an older boy, he is VERY hard of hearing and doesn't see very well, especially out of his left eye. We have found that he will come when we clap our hands, but he can't hear us call his name. Also, his bark sounds very hoarse and the vet suggested using a harness instead of a collar when walking Jack so no additional pressure is put on his larynx and windpipe. The condition of his teeth and the large callouses on his elbows indicate he probably spent his early life in an outdoor kennel. So it is understandable that Jack feels the need to make up for lost time and find the softest spots to lay. (Less)
