found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, and up to date with shots.
Steve, a handsome Pointer cross who is around 5 yrs old and weighs 55 lbs is a wonderful boy who is full of enthusiasm and has so much love to share.
Bancroft is a “hunt” community where it is harder to place dogs in suitable homes. Steve is a gentle, sweet boy who needs a forever home.
This gorgeous fella is athletic and fit — loves a good run and play session, and will make an excellent companion for an active owner that likes to get out and do things with their dog.
Steve, an owner surrender, has good manners around cats, other dogs, and people. He gets along well with most of the dogs he has been around and could be adopted to a home where he would have another well socialized large breed playmate to romp and play with. He is not suited to a home with small dogs since he does not know his own strength. He does show some possessiveness over bones/food with other dogs (but not people) which can be worked on.
Gentle and quiet, he has wonderful house manners — staying off furniture, no chewing, no barking, and fully house trained, using a doggie door to let himself out. He knows basic obedience, and is happy to flop down on his doggie bed and hang out. He has handled all situations he has been exposed him to marvelously. Friendly with people including strangers, and great in crowds. He gets a little too enthusiastic and sometimes jumps up for greetings, but is responding well to correction and hopefully this will be resolved shortly. He is quite a clever guy, eager to please and picks up new commands very quickly… a model student! His leash manners are a work in progress!
His ideal family will be people who are experienced with dogs, as like most pointers., he needs a confident leader. He also will do best with an active family that will give him a lot of opportunities for exercise.
A fenced yard is required. Belly Rubs are a must!
