Lucas's Story...
Hi y'all! I'm Lucas. I was dumped at a shelter in rural Tennessee by my breeder because I didn't meet his 'standards'. Thankfully a rescue pulled me from the shelter and saved my life! Unfortunately, it was discovered that I have severe hip dysplasia. It sure doesn't keep me down though! I run and jump and play and snuggle just like any other dog. Just in case, though, my rescue bought me a wheelchair to go for long walks, runs, or even to hunt if you want! I'm a good ol boy who loves to play with other dogs and chew on my toys.

I am SO good with other dogs that I would be best in a home with another dog or two to play with! I'm great with dogs of any size, shape, age or temperment.

I will require someone who will keep me active. Because of my dysplasia, being lazy actually will make my hips hurt! When my foster mom got me, I could barely walk because I had lived in a small pen for my whole life. Now that I get to run and play, I'm big and strong and feel much better!

Because I lived my whole puppyhood in a pen away from people, I can be a little bit skittish at first (but I'm working on it!). I had never walked on a leash, been in a car, in a house, or slept in a nice warm bed- all of these were new and scary at first, but now I've mastered them all! It takes me a little bit to warm up to people, but once you gain my trust I'm a very loyal boy.

My foster mom says I would make a perfect therapy dog to visit hospitals and nursing homes because I am very gentle and I am soooooo nice to pet- my head and ears feel like velvet! She is currently training me to be a therapy dog.

Do you have what it takes to be my family? I've always wanted a family of my own!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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