Bjorn- WISCONSIN's Story...
UPDATE 3-1-2017: Due to a family issue, Bjorn needs to move to a new foster home. Please call Lisa for more information about that at 630-694-1359.

Bjorn Ironside is a very strong character in the Vikings series on the History channel. We decided our blonde baby needed a new stronger name now that he is all grown up. Bjorn has come such a long way since he came into our program in November of 2014. He was so sickly and autistic. He is just a complete joy now-- doing so well in foster care. He does need his share of exercise at the dog park weekly -- but he is now completely house and cage trained. Look how handsome our sweet laddie is. Best home for him would be with a young couple with a lot of energy and a safe fenced in yard. NO HUNTING HOMES.

Bjorn the Conqueror has his own Facebook Page :)

Please read Bjorn's AMAZING RECOVERY!!! He was so autistic when he came into our program- YAY IBR.

Booger is our newest Pointer rescue- he is not part Vizsla but he is super fun like one. He is partially deaf but showing that he is trainable. We need a very thoughtful experienced treat and training motivated foster home for him to help him be the best dog he can be. As we have linked deafness in our birddog population to Rocky Mountain spotted fever infections and Lyme disease- he is being treated for that and doing well. We have also had to change his diet as he was having some gutt issues upon arrival. Booger was found running loose in Romeoville, IL and his owner could not be found from his microchip. That was surgically removed by the Romeoville Human Society and he then he was transferred into IBR's program. Here are some of his first photos in his Facebook album #1 and then from a recent trip to the dog park in

Facebook album #2 . This pup has so much potential and in he right hands- he is going to be Brilliant!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bjorn- WISCONSIN, a Wood Dale English Pointer/Pointer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a English Pointer/Pointer for sale in Wood Dale, or seeking a English Pointer/Pointer dog from a breeder in Wood Dale.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Wood Dale 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 Wood Dale 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 English Pointer/Pointer breeders who help with English Pointer/Pointer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Wood Dale paves the way for another one to be saved.
