Pointer Rescue -- helping to make a difference

Gretel is Waiting for You!

Hello world,

My name is Gretel. I am a young 1.5 year old English Pointer dog. I live with a great foster family in South Texas and have been accepted into the Pointer Rescue Organization program. Check it out! Sounds fancy eh? They help English Pointers like myself get a new start in life.

I have a wonderful life and am very loved but that wasn't always the case. I was found wandering a rural neighborhood where there were lots of wild animals. I had to fend for myself and forage for food, sometimes the neighbors would feed me. Then I found myself in something they call a KILL shelter. It was very scary for me. I was all alone and confused. I was one of the very few lucky ones that made it out alive. That was a close call. I've been told that lots of nice people on Facebook were networking me, some from places far away. My foster mom says it takes a village. Then it happened! I was sprung from that awful place. My life was about to change!

You should see the place where I live now. I'm a lucky girl. I have my own bedroom all to myself. I come inside to get out of the Texas heat! A doggie door would be nice so I could come and go as I please and how about a dog run? I even sleep in my kennel @ night. My silly Foster Dad calls me Gretel in the Kettle when I'm in my kennel. Wow and now I have all the food and water I need and chew toys abundant. I even received vaccines, a microchip and I have my very own vet (he thinks I'm pretty special). We have a big swimming pool here but I use it for a track. I race round and round the pool deck, working on my figure, you know. I tried swimming but its really not my cup of tea. When I am outside I am always working, looking around. I notice everything, nothing gets by me. We have a big wooden fence to keep me safe. I am a diamond in the RUFF! Mom says I need to mind my manners.

I love my foster family. They have a teenager, a grown kid and 3 big dogs! Then they occasionally take in cool dogs like me that just need a helping paw. My foster dad and I stay busy working on the house. I have helped him with so many projects. He needs encouraging from time to time. BOL! I get to cuddle up at night with my foster dad, we watch T.V. from our favorite recliner. I enjoy other dogs company and get along with kids too, not sure about cats (my foster mom said shes a dog person).

I am looking for the perfect family of my own. I am a very loyal dog and have a lifetime of love to give. I need an active family that adores dogs. I would love to take long walks with you or maybe I could be your jogging partner. When we get home from our walks I will be content to just be by your side and keep you company. I am searching for a family that will love me forever.

My foster mom's gonna cry but she said she understands.

Are you the one for me?
