Rex is a 12 1/2 year old senior male German Shorthaired Pointer. He is very handsome, with a beautiful white with liver coat. Unfortunately, Rex was surrendered to us by his family when they were moving into a condo with no yard and reached out to us to find him a home.
Rex is house trained and crate trained. He has had basic training, and he knows all the commands. He was also hunt trained. He does okay on a leash, but from what we learned, he mostly was exercised by running around their property and wasn’t taken on many walks, but when he does go out for walks, he loves to explore his surroundings.
Rex is quiet when left alone. No destruction. He doesn’t climb fences or try to escape. He slept indoors and even had his own room. He is an obedient, friendly and loving dog with no bad habits. He is afraid of the smoke alarm, but what dog isn’t? Rex is just a great dog! He gets along with other dogs, but of course depending upon the other dog. When being introduced to other dogs, his tail just wags the entire time! Rex is an easy going guy who would benefit in a home with someone who could give Rex the love, companionship, daily exercise and commitment to be his family forever.
While we are always saddened to see a dog given up, it is especially heart-breaking to see a senior lose the family he’s had for so long. The CA GSP Rescue acts as a “safety net” to the dogs we adopt – asking that a family return them if they can’t keep them. We know it is far safer for a dog Rex’ age to come to the Rescue than go to a shelter.
It is so difficult to watch a dog like Rex wait for a new home – we know how much love he has left to give! If you have room in your heart and home for this special senior boy, we’d love to talk to you! To get started, please complete our Adoption Application!
