Pointer Rescue -- helping to make a difference

Tip Needs a New Chance

Tip (1 year old, fostered in North Carolina)
Dog ID# 141264-P-D-SC

I'm Tip! I also go by The Tipster, TipTop and Tiparoo, but not Tippy or Tipper....

I rode in an airplane from the shelter in South Carolina to my foster dad's condominium in North Carolina. Inside, I mostly stay on my rug, and I like to be patted and I never do my business inside, not once! I don't chew things that are not mine, even when my foster dad goes to work. I don't even need a crate! Then, he comes home at lunch and we go outside.

Outside is my favorite! I am making daily progress on my leash when we walk to my safe free zone near the woods, and then I stay close like a good Pointer when we are playing ball or chasing rabbits and birds and falling leaves. I play tennis, soccer and basketball with our neighbor Pete. Tennis is my favorite. I'm good when it's time to leash up and go home, but I am always ready to go out again!

At home, I like the cat and he likes me. We sniff each other. I like all dogs and the dog park and my visitor friend dogs and the dogs we meet on our walks. I like all people of all ages, too, even the little tiny ones. I'm very gentle and polite when I meet new people, waiting until my foster dad shows me they're his friends. Then they're my friends, too!

I don't think hunting would be fun for me, since sometimes a loud noise will startle me. I don't freak out or anything, but I hunker down until I'm sure things are okay.

I am one-and-a-half years old, very energetic and super healthy, my foster doctor said just the other day. I have had all my shots (thank Dog!) and I eat good food and my foster dad puts fish oil on it to help my coat and my neurons, and he gives me my monthly heartworm and flea medicine to make sure I stay HW negative.

My foster dad loves me very much and I love him, too. We agree that I will do best in a home with a yard—I'm an outdoorsy kind of guy!—and canine and human playmates to play ball with and take me to the park and the woods sometimes, too!

My foster dad tells me we're gonna find me the best furever home together. Oh, boy!
