Pointer Rescue -- helping to make a difference

Elko - Handsome & Exuberant

Elko is a five year old, neutered, liver & white male. He is approximately 75 pounds and very muscular. He is up-to-date on his vaccinations. Elko's current owner will be moving in the fall and is unable to take Elko along. He is looking for a loving home for Elko.

Elko is obedient while on lead and is good in the house. He has been hunted over sporadically and his current owner states he will hold a point "indefinitely." When Elko is in the field, he covers lots of ground but stays within 100 yards or so of his handler.

Elko is friendly and eager to please. He is good with children who are large enough to handle his size. Elko is good with other dogs but does like to chase cats. Elko's owner reports he is not a chewer, barker, digger, or biter, but that he does like to howl along with fire or ambulance sirens.

If you would like more information about Elko, please contact me.
