Meet DeeDee!

DeeDee (aka DeDe) is a beautiful 4 year old white & liver purebred German shorthaired pointer who will be on her way from the Western AZ Humane Society in Kingman, AZ to Phoenix on Friday November 21st and then travel from Phoenix to her wonderful foster home in Tucson on Saturday November 22nd!

DeeDee is a really wonderful gal!  She gets along with other dogs, loves to hunt and swim, and be groomed.  DeeDee isn't good with cats or other small animals and can jump a 4' fence, but is fine with a 6' fence.

She is spayed, current on all vaccines, house broken and is used to living indoors and likes to spend time outdoors as well.  Once we get to know DeeDee and get her micro-chipped she will be available for adoption.  A home visit and adoption fee applies.  If you are interested in making DeeDee a part of your family you can email us in advance to request an adoption application at azgspr@gmail.com

Archie the Great!

Archer, aka Archie was rescued from the Pima County Animal Care Center (the county pound) weighing only 39 lbs.!  During his time as a stray, however long that was, he contracted giardia and lost about a third of his body weight.  But Archie is a trooper and he successfully completed treatment, has a good appetite, and has been steadily gaining weight.

In less than a week it became apparent to Archie's foster mom that he was meant to be a part of their family.  She had lost her English pointer boy almost a year ago and hasn't been ready for another pointer until she met him.  Archie is the perfect fit with her other two dogs, too.  Now that he's feeling better (and knows he is home!), his oddball and quirky personality is really coming out!  He is one heck of a whackadoodle!  Congratulations to our director Garnet and her GSP Gatsby & GSP/Lab Lola! <3

Archie, when he was at the shelter.
Slowly, but surely Archie is gaining weight and regaining his health!
Some of Archie's favourite things: chewing on bones, napping on pillows, looking handsome, and shaking hands!
Archie cuddling with his GSP brother Gatsby. Aww!
Archie and his pretty GSP/Lab sister Lola!

Meet Nikki!

Meet Nicole, formerly known as #A491543, is a purebred liver and white English pointer who was rescued from the Pima Animal Care Center in Tucson, Arizona on August 18th.  Nikki, as she is affectionately called, is a small girl weighing in at only 36-37 lbs.!  She is definitely what is referred to as a "pocket pointer."  

Nicole is a wonderful little lady who gets along great with her foster brothers and sisters, takes naps with the cats, and is obsessed with playing fetch! 

Sadly, Nicole caught an upper respiratory infection called kennel cough during her time at the shelter, but she is responding well to treatment and is already feeling a lot better!  Once Nicole has completely recovered from kennel cough and we get to know her better she will be ready to begin searching for her forever family!  Whoever adopts this sweet, funny girl will be very lucky indeed!

Here are some more photos of her having fun and relaxing in her foster home!
