Dixie's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Dixie's Story...
Dixie is a senior German shorthair pointer. She is purebred and has hunted but not in a little while. Her healthy weight is around 50-55 lbs. Dixie adores her humans and is still very much a pup in spirit. She has bursts of puppy energy and would probably appreciate a fenced yard to play in. Dixie has multiple lipomas (fatty lumps) and some arthritis but otherwise seems to be in good health. Dixie can be bossy with some dogs, especially when she needs to let them know she doesn't want to be bothered once she is settled in somewhere. She had always lived as an only dog prior to RCHS and would be happy to go back to that but she is currently doing fine in a foster home with multiple other dogs that respect her space. She has lived with kids in the past but is looking for a quieter, more adult home now. Dixie has really great indoor manners and does not need to be crated while you are away. She does prefer privacy when she is eating, especially from other animals in the home. Dixie would not be a good fit for a home with cats.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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