Meet Sequoia

Hello, my name is Sequoia!
I am an 11-month-old German Shorthaired Pointer. I came to the rescue after I was hit by a car and lost my back leg.
Don't be fooled. I may only have three legs, but I have every ounce of GSP energy my four-legged GSP friends have. I can hold my own.
I love everyone and everything. I want all the humans and dogs to be my friends. My foster family says I have a ton of goofy GSP energy. I play hard, but when I am done, I just want to snuggle and sleep on someone. I haven't been around a lot of cats, but I am sure I would have fun chasing them.
I love to explore. My foster family told me I shouldn't put everything in my mouth, including fingers. They keep saying I need to stop being rough and "mouthy. I am doing my best, but sometimes I get so excited that I forget. I love to wrestle and play tug of war with my friends in my foster home. I admit, I can be wild and could probably knock over small children. It wouldn't be on purpose, but I should probably be in a house with older or dog savvy children who want to run around and play with me.
My foster mom says I am a smart cookie! I don't know what that means, but I do like cookies. I know how to sit and lay down. I don't always listen to stay and come but I know what they mean. I sleep in my crate at night and when my foster family is away from the house. I would prefer to be out, but I am fine looking out the window watching for birds before my nap. If I hear someone, I whine, but once I know I am not getting out I settle down and go to sleep.
I always go potty outside, but I hear that regression is common in new environments.
I might only have 3 legs, but I get "birdie just like all the other bird dogs I know. My foster mom always tells me not to pull on the leash but when I see something moving, I really want to hurry up and get to it. I love that I can run around in my fenced yard. I would prefer to have a fence in my furever home. I enjoy sitting outside and watching the birds fly by, then chasing them when they come close.
I am hoping that my furever home is going to be with people who enjoy taking me for short walks, who will be patient as I continue to work on my leash manners, who will play fetch with me, then let me snuggle on them while I take a nap. I would love a fenced-in yard to run around and watch for birds. I am hoping I can continue to have the company of another active dog who won't get too mad at me when I get crazy. My foster siblings sometimes tell me I get too rough. I am still working on that. My foster mom says I need to go to a home where they have experience with my high energy breed.
I am UTD on my shots and was recently spayed. I will need to meet all resident dogs to make sure they can handle my energy. I am being fostered in Mohnton, PA and prospective adopters may need to travel here for a meet & greet. If you think you could give me a forever home, please apply to adopt me on the Zoe's House website:
