Pointer Rescue -- helping to make a difference

Ranger is Young at Heart and in a New Home!

Ranger is a liver and white male, about 6-years-old, but acts much younger. He was found in a Woodland, California shelter and rescued by a GSP rescue group because the shelter thought he was a GSP. As it turns out, Ranger is all Pointer! He is now in a foster home in Incline Village, Nevada and doing very well.

Ranger is current on his vaccinations, heartworm free and already neutered! He weighs about 57lbs and is between 23" and 24" tall. Ranger does show some pointing instinct and now knows some obedience basics. He is crate trained and is newly housebroken.

The foster home says that Ranger is very affectionate and loving. He respects having house privileges and is being an exemplary houseguest. Ranger loves people and has been shy initially, but is coming around. He is OK with other dogs. Ranger is playful when he feels comfortable. Still a bit unsure and tentative. Loves being in the house next to "his person". Relaxes in house if he is run hard and is tired. Ranger has been running 2-3 miles daily with the foster home and has not run out of steam yet.
