Meet the Pointer Sisters

“I”m so excited, and I just can’t hide it…”

…Well, ok, not the ACTUAL pointer sisters, …more like “sistas-from-otha-mistas!” ¬† ūüėČ

 

Another Pointer Rescue, Org (PRO) transport led us to meet Mollie and Emmie, two beautiful and sweet female English Pointers.

We picked up the two gals from another PRO volunteer, Kirk.  He told us how well-behaved the two ladies were on his drive!

Emmie is already adopted, and this transport was taking Emmie to her forever  home!  She was an absolute joy to ride with in the car, and was so loving the entire ride!  Her forever family is very lucky to be adding Emmie into their lives!

“Sista” number 2, Mollie, ¬†was fresh out of rescue and on her way to her foster home. ¬†Once Mollie is settled in with her foster family, she will be available for adoption through PRO. ¬†Mollie was also quite the sweetheart – full of love and affection!

It truly amazes me with each transport we do – and each rescue dog we meet – -that even though these gentle, innocent beings have been wronged – often abandoned or¬†abused – or both, they still want nothing but to be loved by humans, and will still also show so much affection and love toward humans, even after all that they have been through… ¬†Dogs are truly astonishing creatures.

 

There are many different ways to help either at a local shelter Рor a rescue organization.  Just a few hours can make such a difference for a dog in need! Want to assist, but not sure how?  Click HERE !

 

People who say “Money can’t buy you happiness” have never paid an adoption fee ūüôā ¬†…Don’t shop adopt!

English Pointer Transport

Last Sunday, Brian and I drove out to Allentown, PA, to pick up one of 2 English ¬†Pointers pulled from a high-kill shelter in Kansas. ¬†The rescue in their area was full and had no foster homes available, so the German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue of NJ volunteered to help out. The female English Pointer, Amira, was being picked up by her foster parents. This is Amira:Amira However, Max, the male pointer, need to be transported closer to his foster dad in Southern NJ – so that’s where Brian and I helped out. Meet Max… isn’t he stunning?!?

Max was a very excitable boy, and was alert for most of his 2 hour ride to Southern NJ.

After some nice ear rubs, Max finally felt comfortable “giving in” and taking a nap!

Brian and I took Max to our house, where his foster dad was picking him up. ¬†Max’s foster dad wound up staying at our house for a good 2.5 hours while Max and Cello played their hearts out – bot inside the house and in the snow outside in the yard! ¬†I regret not taking pictures during that time to share…but I was too overwhelmed with joy watching the two play so well together, and thinking about how this wonderful dog, once discarded, is about to begin the best part of his life!

Cello was worn out from all of Max’s energy and slept like a baby that night!

It took many volunteers to transport these two English Pointer pups from Kansas to New Jersey… Thanks to everyone who helped these two cuties on their way to a better life and a forever home! ¬†If you are interested in Max or Amira, please email the German Shorthaired Rescue of New Jersey at¬†GSPrescueNJ@hotmail.com¬†.

UPDATE: MARCH 2014: BOTH MAX AND AMIRA HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!
