DUKE's Story...
Duke is an absolutely gorgeous 1.5 year old German Shorthair/Wirehair Pointer mix and is a super happy, friendly dog. Duke is athletic with a high energy level, but calms down quickly after some exercise and attention--don't we all! Responds to basic commands (come, sit, stay) and working on more as we speak. Good on a leash, a bit strong, so working on this as well. Loves to be by your side and really enjoys the company of others. Duke will make a great addition to an active family who has time to spend with him, patience to continue his obedience training, and a family with a fenced in yard or a decent amount of land for him to run, retrieve and play. He is neutered and up to date on all vaccines. Duke is heartworm positive and will be treated for it soon. This sweet boy was found as a stray in Memphis, had been on his own for quite a while, and somehow STILL loves people and loves loves loves other dogs. He would do best in a home with older children and a home without cats. He LOVES to retrieve, and tennis balls may be one of his favorite things in this world. It's actually a beautiful thing to watch how this dog moves so gracefully across the earth. Duke is one of the most captivating dogs I have rescued in a while--a natural beauty, a born retriever, and a total love bug.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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