Young Female German Shorthaired Pointer

"Baby, I was" Hi, my name is Helen and “Bark softly and carry a big stick” is how I live my life (well, at least the second part!). I’m a 25-ish lb 5-6 month old energetic and snuggly pointer puppy who loves to chew on sticks, leaves, bones, toys and anything else I can put in my mouth, including the occasional pillow or shoe. I’m a puppy, after all, and that’s just what we do! You’ll have to forgive me, though - I’m just so happy to have a new “leash” on life that sometimes I can’t contain myself. You see, before HAL rescued me I had entropic eyelids, which means that my eyelids rolled inward and rubbed against my eyes. It was terribly painful and my eyes were swollen because of the irritation. The nice people at HAL got me the surgery that I needed and now I’m feeling great! The vet said my eyes will probably never look “normal” but that’s okay with me – my eyes feel better than they ever have and that’s all that matters to me! I am good with the kids and cat at my foster home, and I’m especially fond of the dog there so my foster family feels it’s important for me to have a canine companion in my forever home. I’m doing great with house-training and have learned that if I scratch at the back door when I need to go to the bathroom, someone will let me outside; sometimes I forget and end up having an accident but my foster family thinks I’m pretty smart for teaching myself to signal them. I’m not a huge fan of my crate and will bark for a little while when it’s bedtime, but that’s just one of the things that my forever family will have to teach me when they teach me all the other good stuff that all puppies should learn. I’m spayed and up to date on my shots. If you’re an active person/family looking for a buddy to join you on adventures, apply to adopt me today!

Ever think about fostering a dog in need? Home At Last Dog Rescue needs fosters! We need volunteers to foster dogs in their homes until permanent homes are found. HAL provides vet care, food, toys. crates, etc. for the dog you are caring for. You provide love, and compassion. If you can’t foster but can help watch a dog overnight here and there, help with transports or events, HAL needs volunteers too! Just email for more information on how you can make a difference in a homeless pets life!
