Patrick's Story...
Patrick may be nine years old, but he has the spirit of a youngster eager to play and explore the world around him. This gentle older boy absolutely delights in his walks and has a spring in his step, tail wagging the whole time. It is likely that Patrick did not have many opportunities to be out and about in the world in his life before the shelter, but he is making up for it now, bouncing and playing with his volunteer companion, like a pup. He is also learning how oh-so-nice it is to get some loving: Patrick will gently lean into you as you stroke his fur, and look at you adoringly with those big brown eyes. We think Patrick would do best in a home without young children, and as the only dog in the household. If you are looking to give an older dog a new lease on life, with lots of opportunities for walking (and of course, plenty of t-l-c), come meet Patrick and see whether he is the right fit for you.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Patrick, a Berkeley German Wirehaired Pointer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Wirehaired Pointer for sale in Berkeley, or seeking a German Wirehaired Pointer dog from a breeder in Berkeley.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Berkeley 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 Berkeley 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 Wirehaired Pointer breeders who help with German Wirehaired Pointer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Berkeley paves the way for another one to be saved.
