    Default WEF - Dog looking for home - OWNER FOUND!!

    A trainer at WEF found a male Pointer dog that has not been claimed, so it's looking for a home! Will be neutered & UTD on shots. He's a beautiful boy in great condition, gets along well with other dogs and is fine in the horse show atmosphere.

    Send me a message if you are or know anyone who may be interested! (Or swing by the south grounds office)

    Edward is the perfect name for him! I'll ask my husband (who will instantly insist that WE need him) if he has any ideas since he's more tapped into the bird/sporting dog scene.

    That would be fantastic! I have the feeling that he was/is a hunting dog....

    Looks like a German Shorthaired Pointer to me--if you can't place him, try the rescue group: http://www.segsprescue.org/ Best of luck--they're great dogs!

    Where is this cute boy located? That's definately a German Shorthair...hubby has had them for years. WTF is wrong with people? Hoping the sweet boy finds a home.

    Kari,
    Per the OP he's at WEF, which is in Wellington, FL (near the Palm Beaches). Agree on the WTF--he looks too old for someone to have gotten a GSP and then had the "oh my gosh it has SOOO much energy" moment and dumped him. My parents have a great GSP--I'd go across the state and get this boy in a heartbeat if I wasn't in a condo!

    Yes, he is in Wellington FL, which is south FL, above Miami/Ft. Lauderdale.

    I talked to GSP rescue yesterday and they are going to help try to find him a home as well...

    Too bad he's in FL, I know several people around here that would take him in a heartbeat. I have a friend that has two that are both pets and also bird hunt and they're GREAT dogs. I'm surprised people aren't fighting over him, he's a handsome boy!

    OP, have you tried posting him on any hunting forums? I don't know of any but I'm sure some must exist for quail and pheasant hunting... might be worth a shot.

    Good idea - I'll see what I can find...

    Tell your friends that he can ship to VA!

    I would be fighting over him if he were closer...but I am in Mass.
    This is a great breed of dog, loyal, smart (problem solving smart) protective, and wonderful with kids and families.
    =( I wish I were closer....

    Hmm... wonder if he could catch a ride with someone coming back to VA. Does he appear to be housebroken at all or is he just hanging out outside?

    He appears to be housebroken. He is in a house with 4 other dogs right now and only once, when he first got there did he lift his leg inside. He got reprimanded and has been great since. The person that has him thinks it was more territory marking than anything... I'll PM you the number of the trainer that has him and you can talk to her. If it ends up you want him, I'll see what I can do to help arrange transport north!

    Happy update and at animal control in Palm Beach County!

    Edwards owner is a groom at a local farm. He WAS looking for his dog, and called animal control 3 times asking about him - after seeing him listed on their website. He was told the dog was not there. A groom at the show saw the dog, called another groom who called the owner. They are very happy to have him home and it was obvious that it was their dog. So happy endings for a sweet dog & his family!

    Yayyyy!!!! I really hoped somebody hadn't owned a sweet GSP like him for as long as they obviously had and then just dumped him. So glad he and his family are reunited.

    See, just because of the laziness of a clerk or poor communications at the animal control facility this dog's life could have ended up so disastrously. I hope the owner lets animal control know what happened so they can correct their problems so that this is less likely to happen again. Glad that someone was looking out for him and that he found his people again!
