Animal ID: ISR1650George (male)

German Shorthaired Pointer    Age: Senior

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    PLACEMENT REQUIREMENTS: George is male GSP, about 9 years old, and ready for adoption. He exhibits some prey drive so we're not sure how he would do with cats. GEORGE'S STORY: George is about 9 years old but still has plenty of energy to keep him on the go and interested in everything going on around him. He came to ISR after he was found as a stray. During his time with ISR, he received the food and medical attention he deserved to get him back to good health. George is a white, liver spotted, medium-sized GSP with a long, natural tail. He gets along great with the other GSP living in his foster home. He's content just to follow his buddy ... (Read More)around and keep an eye on things in the yard. He loves squeaky stuffed animals and doggy toys. Sometimes he'll play keep away with you if you try to get one his adopted 'babies' - all in good fun of course. He doesn't exhibit any aggressive tendencies with humans or animals in any situation. George is prey-driven and will hurriedly check out the fence line for any sign or scent of something he can chase. He loves being on the move in the yard! When he's first let out in the yard to get a bit of exercise and do his business, he runs full speed briefly, and then slows down to enjoy his time sniffing for intruders. We're not sure how George will be with children or cats. When he is greeted by strangers, he's very apprehensive and will back away and bark until he becomes more acquainted and comfortable with them. If he were to be homed with a family that has children, George would need to be given time and space to allow a slow 'getting to know you' period of time to ensure his comfort in a new setting. George will also need to be in a family that has someone home with him more time than they are away from him. When entering rescue, George experienced some separation anxiety which has markedly improved over time. He is crate-trained and accepts going into a crate with no problem. George loves his food and feeding time. He loves his food so much that he's quite the gobbler. He's recently been eating out of a cupcake/muffin tin with a little food in each cupcake holder. This has helped slow down his eating and he doesn't seem to mind taking the extra time to get each bit of food. George has the cutest tendency to carry things around with him. The first thing he chooses to do when he's released from his crate is to find something to carry around with him. A shoe, squeaky toy, socks, food bowl, etc. He's not particular, just whatever's closest that he can put in his mouth for a while. Even though George was a stray for a while, he seems to be a fast learner and already knows commands, such as, sit, come, and fetch. His foster family has been working on helping him understand and learn what's not acceptable in a home. George is a great big cuddler and likes to spend his 'down time' relaxing under the covers, all sprawled out somewhere. Sofas and chairs are prime real estate! He also likes his fair share of loving and attention from his people! If you are interested in George, please review our application process at www.ilshorthairrescue.com (Less)
