Kenya's Story...
Hi! My name is Kenya, and I am a beautiful purebred German Shorthair Pointer. Dark brown in color with white spots, floppy ears and a docked tail. I am very friendly and energetic. I was found by a nice family and they brought me into the shelter so that i didn't get hit by a car. I am a hunting dog through and through. I am not gun shy and my foster family is positive that i've been hunted over before. I was even pointing the cats in the office and would love a family that would take me hunting.... but also one that will make me part of the family. I am very cuddly and gentle. I would do great in a home with kids and other dogs and i am already housetrained. I may be a tiny bit mischevious as i had a large scar down my side when i came in that the vet thinks may have been thanks to some barbed wire. But it is pretty much healed and doesn't bother me a bit. My adoption fee is $200 and that includes up to date shots and spaying. If you would like to adopt me, email adoptions@starnorth.org for the application or call 218.245.3732 for more information during adoption hours Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 5-7 or Saturdays 12-3.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kenya, a Coleraine 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 Coleraine, or seeking a German Shorthaired Pointer dog from a breeder in Coleraine.

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