Lizzie Wants a New Forever Family
Lizzie is a very special young female Pointer rescued from a Texas kill shelter where she was labeled as "un-adoptable" due to her extreme fear and shyness. She was dumped at the shelter with abrasions around her neck and it was very apparent to a shelter volunteer she had been mistreated terribly by a human. With the help and caring hearts of great Texas folks, Lizzie was pulled from the shelter and after a short stay with a friend she arrived home to her foster family in Ohio. She has been out of the shelter now since early July, 2011 and has just about forgotten her former life. Now full of happiness and lots of Pointer energy, she is ready for a very special family or individual who will love her forever, continue to support her confidence building with new introductions and lots of exercise and playtime. She is still very cautious about new people, places, and experiences. Lizzie loves playing with the other foster Pointers in her home and would do well with another high energy breed in her new home. Leash work and not jumping up on her foster mom and dad are area's she needs continued training. She is rather petite and fine boned in size, often referred to as a "pocket" Pointer within the breeding community.
Her natural pointing skills are incredible and she is very steady, but it is suspected some of her fear issues stemmed from being forced to hunt by an inexperienced and unkind owner. Crate training for Lizzie was easy and she is rewarded with a treat every night. She will start singing though in the mornings when she is ready to go out.
Lizzie is between a year and two years of age, spayed, current on vaccinations, heart worm/flea medications and is already micro chipped. A transfer of the adopter's contact information and yearly subscription to Home Again microchip service is a requirement by her foster home. She has not been tested with cats or children and a high fenced yard for Lizzie is necessary. If you are interested in knowing more about Lizze, please complete an adoption application available here on the Pointer Rescue Organization website.
