Pointer Rescue -- helping to make a difference

Minnie Needs a New Home

Minnie - 5 years old, fostered in Florida
Dog ID#: 151391-P-B-IL

Minnie is a 5 yr old Orange and White English Pointer. She comes from Illinois, where she was used as a breeding dog and lived outside her entire life. When she came to rescue, she was emaciated and heartworm positive. She moved to her foster home in Florida Dec 12-13, 2015 where she completed treatment for heartworm and has reached a MUCH healthier weight. She is now ready for a home of her own!

Since Minnie had been bred so many times and was so thin and lived outside, she didn't have the best house manners. Crate training took some time, but she is now crate trained and will happily go in when her foster mom goes to work for a T-R-E-A-T! She was an avid counter surfer because she was so starved, and she has gotten much better at it, but she still needs to be watched around delicious things. Living outside in a kennel all her life, she didn't know what acceptable behaviors are but she is learning. She is very affectionate, and loves to be around her foster family. She is great with other dogs and she is good with kitties too! Minnie is VERY birdy and has a very nice point. She is a strong girl and tends to pull on a lead, especially when she sees critters but she can walk very nicely too.
