Mossie's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Mossie's Story...
Mossie is our sweet, timid girl :) She's a beautiful pointer mix, about three years old.

She was very scared when she was in the pound.

Out of the pound, it took her a little bit of time to relax. Now, a couple of weeks later, Mossie is still a bit timid, but she's getting braver by the day!

She spent an exciting weekend meeting new people and new dogs, and did well with all of them. YAY, Mossie!

She had her first doggy play date and had so much fun! And she went with foster mom to visit her parents and also did well - especially after she met and got to know their dogs.

As with many shy dogs, Mossie follows the lead of other balanced dogs. If they are safe and secure, it makes it easier for her to trust, as well.

These pictures show a happier, calmer Mossie who is learning that she is safe and loved, and doesn't have to be so afraid any more <3

Mossie was in heat when we pulled her from the pound, but now that it is winding down we'll be scheduling her for her spay surgery.

She's already seen our vet and is up to date with all of her vaccines, and tests that we do routinely when a dog comes into our rescue.

Mossie will do best in a home with another dog. We're looking for a family with children 7 years old or older - the quick movements of really small children would startle her. She hasn't yet been tested with cats.

She will do best with a family who can continue to give her the time and encouragement she needs to continue to grow in confidence.

She is an incredibly gentle, sweet, loving dog who will make a wonderful new family member.

We're accepting applications for Mossie, although she won't be cleared for an adoption to be finalized until she is spayed and has a chance to recover from the surgery.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mossie, a Groton Pointer/Hound (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pointer/Hound (Unknown Type) for sale in Groton, or seeking a Pointer/Hound (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Groton.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Groton 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 Groton 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 Pointer/Hound (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Pointer/Hound (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Groton paves the way for another one to be saved.
