Rudy's Info...

I am up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Rudy's Story...
Rudy is a 4 year old un-neutered male German Shorthair Pointer who came to the shelter when his owner could no longer care for him. Rudy will be available for adoption on October 20th after 6pm. Rudy appears to be good with other dogs, but does not like cats. He is good with children but is very high energy and does jump up, so children over 12 would be best. Rudy enjoys riding in vehicles, and has had obedience training however, his skills have not been utilized lately. A refresher class would certainly help make a great family dog. He will sit, down and stay for a person who let's him know he is not the boss. He enjoys a good game of fetch.. Rudy's previous owner was not in a situation to spend much time with him or to give him the proper exercise, and that made Rudy an uncontented boy. If you have the time and energy to spend with him, he will become an awesome dog. He has been used for hunting and does not appear to be gun shy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rudy, a Meridian 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 Meridian, or seeking a German Shorthaired Pointer dog from a breeder in Meridian.

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