Dee was born about September 20, 2013 and weighs about 60 lbs. Dee has become a wonderful part of our home/pack and is having a ton of fun here. She is on the busy side for her age which is normal for the breed. For the first two years of her life she was housed outside and used for breeding. Then she was purchased to be a hunting dog and it was discovered she was afraid of gunshots so now she is loving the inside life which she very much enjoys. Let's get the bad stuff out of the way: Dee LOVES stuffed animals as we witnessed while doing photos and video. In her home she was very protective of them and had one on her dog bed when the woman in the home went to pet her and Dee bit her and she landed her butt here. It appears this was the only time and we've not had any problem here, but we also don't have stuffed animals due to the dogs taking them out the door and un-stuffing them making an awful mess in the yard. Soooo...going forward, just in case there should be no children and she will need the humans in the home to know she has this fetish and NO STUFFED TOYS. Without stuffed toys she has been really wonderful to all of us - loving, fun, funny dog! Now for the good stuff: Dee LOVES to play fetch and will carry a ball with her most of the day and sleeps with it during the nights. She will run to get it and bring it back and drop it at your feet ready to go again. When she is tired she'll lie with it near you. I find it interesting the possessiveness of the stuffed toys does not transfer to the ball. Dee will howl at you when she wants attention, to be fed, or is ready to fetch! She loves to have her head scratched and her belly rubbed. She loves to go for walks and to run around in a fenced yard and is loving playing with the other dogs here. She is not for a lazy person for sure. She is obedience trained and knows sit and stay and she will hang with you in the yard, off leash, to play. She is good about her crate and knows 'go to bed' and expects a treat. Dee is a hoper as if she is on springs. She will hop up and down for toys or food. Her release word is 'brake brake'. Dee is also good in the car. Now my thoughts on what I just wrote from the previous owner: I've always loved the antics of a pointer - they are smart and just funny dogs and they are a higher energy than most. She is going to need humans that will keep both her mind and body exercised. She didn't get the chance to be a pup and I can't imagine the frustration caused from puppy energy of a pointer being caged it's entire teen life. Update: We need to emphasis that the fear of gunshots is severe as she was visiting a PetSmart and there was a large bang and she panicked. This fear may also apply to thunder, etc. Her new owner needs to keep this in mind and ready to have a good handle on her if there is a bang of some sort. The Adoption Fee for this dog is $275.00.
