Katie's Info...

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

Katie's Story...
This is Katie, a sweet 2 year old German Shorthair Pointer who weighs about 40 pounds. Katie gets along with everyone she meets, including children and other dogs. Her foster mom says she is the ‘most perfect little pointer’ she has ever fostered. Katie is crate trained and housebroken, is not a barker and doesn’t jump up on people; she would be great for a family with active children. She loves to play with balls & toys and to chase butterflies.

Katie's adoption fee is $175; she’s up to date with routine shots, micro-chipped and altered and has tested negative for heartworms.

Some of our dogs are in foster homes; please call the shelter, 618-282-7387, to check on their location.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Katie, a Columbia 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 Columbia, or seeking a German Shorthaired Pointer dog from a breeder in Columbia.

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