Quincy - Courtesy Post's Story...
Quincy is a seven-year-old GWP who is bursting with energy and love.

Described as a “major goofball”, he is a playful pooch, who absolutely adores a good game of tug of war. He is very affectionate and will come for a cuddle at every opportunity, though leaving him alone at home is not a problem – he doesn’t whine and has never had any accidents. He will happily sleep on the bed if allowed, but will not do so otherwise.

He has good recall and has mastered numerous commands, including sit, stay, shake and down. On very rare occasions, when he is particularly excited by something, he may take a short while to respond to a call back, but always does in the end. He loves long walks and being outside, but your flowers are safe from Quincy as he’s not a digger!

He has a tendency to growl at unknown newcomers, but settles down once he has recognized them as welcome visitors and then is very friendly and never growls again.

He has had no interactions with cats or children, but a home without other pets would probably be preferable. He gets on well with dogs when they come to visit with their owners, but on one occasion has growled and snapped at another dog in the park when startled. This is the only time this has occurred and he has never been aggressive towards people or other animals since.

Quincy likes to be the boss and lead the way, often pulling on the leash, so a confident and experienced owner is needed to show him the rules. However, training and a harness will certainly help with this habit.

His current owners can sadly no longer provide him with the stable home he needs, but are in no hurry to rehome. They just want to find the perfect place for this sweet and loving dog.

Do you think you can offer that perfect place? If so, then please contact dogwoodrescuesociety@gmail.com

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Quincy - Courtesy Post, a Vancouver German Wirehaired Pointer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Wirehaired Pointer for sale in Vancouver, or seeking a German Wirehaired Pointer dog from a breeder in Vancouver.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Vancouver 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 Vancouver 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 Wirehaired Pointer breeders who help with German Wirehaired Pointer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Vancouver paves the way for another one to be saved.
