Wesley's Story...
Meet SAFE (Saving Animals From Euthanasia) Class XIII at WKCC (Western KY Correctional Complex). Seven dogs will train for approximately two months with inmate handlers. In that time, the dogs will be housetrained, crate trained, trained to walk on a loose leash, and able to perform various tricks. They will also be neutered, on flea and tick preventative, on heartworm preventative, microchipped, and up to date on all vaccinations. The cost for adopting a SAFE dog is $150.00. Applications will be taken until May 24, 2013. Applications may be uploaded from SAFE Haven KY website at Applications then may be either mailed to SAFE Haven, P.O. Box 401, Princeton, KY 42445.

Wesley is an 18 month old German Shorthaired Pointer who, unfortunately for him, didn't want to hunt. We are going to leave it that his owner did not use positive reinforcement to try to train him. That is about as kind as we are prepared to be.
Wesley came to SAFE with his tail between his legs, unable to make eye contact, and generally scared out of his skin. The trainers are gaining his trust, and, slowly, but surely, Wesley is learning that not all humans are unpleasant. If you are looking for a hunting dog, Wesley is not the dog for you. But, if you want a faithful companion to sit at your feet and adore you, please consider this beautiful boy!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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