My story


ATTENTION - We Do Not Adopt Out of State - NO EXCEPTIONS 

Disclaimer: All rescue dogs may have a percentage of pit bull or Staffordshire breeds in them.

I need a single family home with a fenced in yard. 


     Samantha was born around 3/9/2016. She is a 68 lb. German Short Hair Pointer.  This girl gets along great with other dogs and has not shown any aggression towards cats.  She is crate trained but does have a little separation anxiety so she prefers to be with her human.  She may be deaf. She is also potty trained and leash trained. Samantha is a moderately active dog, but has no issue sleeping through the night or taking long naps.  She is equally interested on going on walks and adventures.  She has eager energy and sticks by her person.  She would make an ideal running partner or hiking companion. She’s a very bouncy (but does not jump on people, she just kind of little hops in place when excited), happy go lucky dog who would probably be very happy in a home with other pets, or going to doggy daycare, or both. She doesn’t have the boundless energy of some other dogs, but she does seem to have some reliable traits that are associated with German shorthaired pointers. She enjoys sleeping in bed and would be happy in a home that allows her to be on furniture.  She would benefit from someone that is home every day.  Samantha is full of personality and will steal your heart in a second. He current foster simply cannot say enough good things about her- she is an awesome girl.  So, if you are looking for a great companion, a pup that can match your energy level whether high or low, a girl that loves people and forms that special bond, there search no more, you have found her.

More about this rescue

Douglas County Canine Rescue, or DCCR as we like to call our organization is about one thing, helping dogs in need! Douglas County Canine Rescue, is a 501 c3 non- profit, no kill, animal rescue. Our mission is to rescue abandoned animals, spay, neuter and provide medical care, and then put them with foster homes until we get them adopted into the loving homes that they need and deserve! Douglas County Canine Rescue does not have a facility. We rely solely on the kindness and generosity of animal lovers who open their hearts to help us take care of the animal orphans that desperately need help.
