Nugget's Story...
Howdy ya’ll I’m Nugget! I’m a one-year old male German Shorthair Pointer…..fancy huh? Not to toot my own horn but I am extremely handsome! I mean look at my stance! I am from KY, where I was surrendered to a shelter after I had been found shot in the rear leg. Don’t fret ladies, I’m fine. I had surgery to close the wound and I healed perfectly!
Now, I did come from a rough background. I was beaten, so it takes time for me to warm up to people, especially men. However, after I learn to trust I am very affectionate. Since I was an abused dog I will require some special care. I lost my ability to trust people and be a dog in my old life, so I will need a forever home that is patient, kind and understanding of that. Most of all, I need a forever hooman that won’t give up on me and I in turn will be your best friend. Some things to keep in mind about me are- I need you to go slow when putting a leash on me, but once I’m leashed up I do pretty good at not pulling. I’m pretty scared of getting in the car so I will need some help. But I am getting better and my foster mom is confident I can overcome this eventually. I have had some potty accidents in the house, but if you take me outside quick after I get out of my crate then I’m good to go. I stay in the crate during the day and at night when my foster hoomans are away. However, I do like going outside on a lunch break…. Hint-hint. I will want to be close to you since I didn’t have that and it’s what I’ve always longed for. I hope you don’t mind 
I still do have puppy in me (remember I’m a youngin’ still), so I do need to be reminded of my manners (walking on the table was not my proudest moment, I thought it was normal). I promise I can learn so don’t walk away from me just yet! I also love belly rubs and other dogs. My foster family sometimes takes me to the dog park but I’m still cautious. Oh….and I sometimes forget my size and since I want to play I shouldn’t be in a house with cats or other small dogs. I don’t want any little creatures getting stepped on.
I look forward to meeting you and showing you that despite of adversity and neglect, I am still extremely loving and kind and want nothing more than a loving family of my own.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nugget, a Champaign 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 Champaign, or seeking a German Shorthaired Pointer dog from a breeder in Champaign.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Champaign 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 Champaign 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 Champaign paves the way for another one to be saved.
