Rosco is an approximately 8 year old male German Shorthaired Pointer. Rosco found himself at a shelter, unsure of where his family was who never came to claim him. However, California GSP Rescue had their radar on him to make sure he was safe. Once his stray hold was up, and no one came to claim him, he was made available for adoption. When no one showed any interest in adopting him, we wasted no time to pick him up and get him to safety. While we aren’t sure how someone could let go of such an incredible dog, we are happy he is now safe with us, and one step closer to his forever home.
We are getting to know Rosco, and have found him besides being very handsome, to be very sweet. We don’t know how much training he has had, but we are learning more about him. He has done very well with the other dogs in the field with no issues. He would most likely do best in a home without cats. He is very loving towards people, and loves to come up for attention and pets. He rides well in a car, and walks pretty good on a leash. He loves to explore and come and say hello before lying down for a nap in the sunshine.
Rosco would make the perfect companion for someone who is looking for a GSP, but doesn’t want the crazy energy of a young GSP. Someone that wants a dog more on the mellow easy going side, who would enjoy leisurely walks, accompany you on errands, camping trips, going to the beach, and to hang out with you watching television together. These dogs are “Velcro” dogs, and love to be with their people, which also makes them excellent cuddle buddies!
