You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

All of the animals posted on our site have been temperament tested. While not all are in the immediate area, once we have processed and approved your application, we will move the dog to our adoptive area for you to meet, greet and hopefully adopt. Sometimes we will have more than one application on a dog. That does not mean it automatically goes to another family but you should be aware of the fact that until you are approved and set up for the meet/greet.. the dog could get adopted by another applicant.

Byron is a 3 year old Wired Haired German Short Haired Pointer.  He was rescued from Croatia where he lived his life with over 300 dogs, all tied to dog houses.   He arrived in the USA 2 months ago and is still adjusting to his environment. He is calm.  The calm is likely Byron trying to readjust to a completely new culture (language and living environment).  Byron would need a home where he is not going to be put under any pressure to meet lots of new people or friends, nor be around children.  He should not be put under pressure  to go for car rides or visit dog parks. He is a dog that would do well living with another calm, friendly, playful dog.  Byron is making great progress with his adjustment and has learned to relax in his crate and is getting used to going for leash walks.  He has not been socialized with children so should not go to a home with children.  Children are unpredictable and he is likely to become fearful or feel threatened around them.  
The ideal home would be calm, free from stress, where he can go for leisurely walks, relax in the home, gradually building his trust and confidence to venture farther out.  Overall he is a sweet dog who needs some time to adjust.
