Moonshine is a sweet and energetic 2-year old German Wirehaired Pointer. He retrieves Chuckit balls and dearly loves Tuffie dog toys, and sporadically puts them in my hand. He does well in his crate, uses the dog door/potties on command, and rides well in the car, crated or not. He leads well with the recommended collar, will stay off of furniture, if you wish, or will be right up there with you, if you desire. He's not destructive in the house, other than when my young male Wirehaired Pointing Griffon sees a squirrel in the backyard. They skid into every wall and door frame as they scramble to the back of the house and the dog door, with my dog AaaRoooing! away. I'm afraid he has fallen in with bad company. I rarely hear Moonshine bark.
Moonshine is friendly with most dogs. On occasion, a dominate or anxious female will cause a reaction. My mature Irish female falls in both categories. Moonshine is crated in the dining room at night and when we leave the house. I put my female's bed against his crate, confine them at night and feed them in the same room. They are now kissy face friends.
Moonshine will do best in an active home with a very tall fence. If you are looking for sweet companion, and possibly, a running partner, Moonshine is your guy!
How do I adopt?
If you are interested in adopting from TSBR - please review our adoption process. We require an application and home visit prior to being considered for adoption.
TSBR is a foster based rescue program and does not have a shelter or facility. Only approved adopters may meet our dogs outside of a public event.
TSBR Minimum Adoption Fees:
Texas Sporting Breed Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We do not receive government funding and therefore rely heavily on our adoption fees, fundraising efforts, and generous supporters. Our fees are directly linked to our costs to care for dogs in our program.
*Adoption fees are subject to change as deemed necessary by TSBR. Each adoption, and the care an individual dog receives is subject to change and is at the discretion of our Chair of Animal Welfare. Our website does not bind TSBR legally, but is merely a guide. The signed adoption contract with each adoption is legally binding. Adoption fees must be paid by cash, check, money order, bank check, or credit card (additional fees apply for use of credit card).
Our minimum adoption fees are directly linked to our costs to care for dogs in our program.
Puppies (8 months of age and younger)
**If, at the time of adoption, your dog or puppy has not been spayed/neutered (based on recommendation by TSBR Veterinarian), you are required to sign a spay/neuter agreement and will be responsible for the spay/neuter. Our adoption contract requires that all dogs (or puppies) be spayed/neutered within one month of adoption, or when age appropriate. You are asked to notify us when and by who this surgery will be performed. Our volunteers will verify that the dog has been spayed/neutered. If you fail to spay/neuter, as outlined in the adoption contract you signed, our organization will take appropriate measures to reclaim the dog.
