Cowboy's Story...
Howdy Pardners! Let me tell you, I’ve gone through the mill a few times and I admit to a bit of fun now and again, but this last scrape with the law was a scary one. I ended up in the calaboose and thinkin’ my days were numbered.

An ace high rescue came to my aid in the nick of time. Now, I’m in apple pie order and all I need is a place to hang my hat with a loving family I can be proud to call my own.

Cowboy is a young (estimated to be approximately one year) German Short-Haired Pointer mix. He weighs 37 lbs (the food in lock-up ain’t so tasty) and he needs to gain a bit of weight after his stay! He is extremely friendly and seems to get along well with everyone, but he has been in our rescue a short time, and we always encourage “meet and greets” when a family has kids or other pets. Cowboy will follow his nose with typical pointer focus, therefore, he needs a home with a privacy fence. He is very eager to please and we believe he will respond quickly to structured training.

His adoption fee of $175 includes deworming, vaccines, heart worm test (negative), neuter, microchip and registration. He is on heartworm and flea/tick prevention. E-mail happypawscaan@gmail.com to give this cowpoke a pace to settle in and put up his heels.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cowboy, a Plattsmouth German Shorthaired Pointer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shorthaired Pointer for sale in Plattsmouth, or seeking a German Shorthaired Pointer dog from a breeder in Plattsmouth.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Plattsmouth already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Plattsmouth breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even German Shorthaired Pointer breeders who help with German Shorthaired Pointer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Plattsmouth paves the way for another one to be saved.
