Every GSP deserves a second chance.
You own a German Shorthaired Pointer and are unable or unwilling to keep your dog. Perhaps you don’t have the time you once did to spend with your dog and feel he or she would be happier in a different home. Maybe a newcomer to the family is severely allergic. You may be moving to a place that isn’t suitable for a GSP. Whatever your reason, we will do what we can to help and guide you during this time. Making the right decision is sometimes very difficult, but always try to keep in mind what is best for the dog when making your decision.
When someone wants to adopt a particular breed of dog, they often turn to a breed-specific rescue. Our Rescue realizes that GSPs need to live with special owners and/or families, in part because they are such an active breed. We know this breed very well and take great pains to find families who have either lived with GSPs in the past or presently own a GSP. We require an adoption application be submitted, check references and then conduct a thorough home visit on prospective adopters, paying special attention to those who are excited to adopt a GSP but haven’t yet lived with one. Your dog deserves the best home possible—one that will provide security, comfort and lots of attention and love. Mile High GSP Rescue is made up of volunteers and none of us are paid for what we do. Any rescue, including ours, is responsible for vet fees, food, and any emergencies that may occur while your dog is in our care. Your surrender fee will help to cover such costs.
We take purebred GSPs, and only under special circumstances may we consider taking a GSP mix.
