Pointer Rescue -- helping to make a difference

Sweet Maria

Maria - 7 years old, fostered in Ohio
Dog ID#: 151154-P-B-GA

Don't let my little bit of grey fool you into thinking I am ready to slow down. My age was estimated to be about 8 years when I was left at a county animal control facility in Georgia. My foster mom thinks I may have been used for breeding, and may not have always been treated nicely in my former life.

My favorite activity is long walks where I can explore and look for birds. When I go to the door for my walk, I do a tap dance with all four feet because I am so excited. I am very birdy and make my foster mom stop on walks when I go on point, although I am really not interested in a home who will hunt me but one that will keep me active.

My favorite treat is apples by the way!

While in foster I completed treatment for heartworms and received a dental to remove a few nasty teeth.

The resident Pointers I live with are younger than me but there are no issues being a social girl with them.

Crate training at first was a little scary for me, but now I get a little treat which makes it a happy place for me. I do just fine while my foster mom is at work and sleep very well at night. Chew toys and things I can carry around in my mouth are great but I will destroy stuffed toys in minutes! Since I am middle aged and prefer walks or hikes for exercise, I could easily live in a condo type home with a person dedicated to taking me out several times a day regardless of weather conditions.

Maria is spayed, current on her vaccinations, Heartworm/ flea preventatives and all vetting records will be sent to her adopter. Her foster mom is looking for a special home who will cherish Maria and welcomes questions from approved adopters.
