4 year old Pino is an English Pointer that was left tied to a fence outside a shelter. We were asked to help with this boy because EP Rescue couldn't so we accepted him into our program. He has been in foster care for 8 months with an experienced dog trainer and we still have not received any interest in him.
Pino seems to have been trained to hunt with a remote collar that was used improperly. He is extremely sensitive to it and is being reconditioned to it slowly. We have learned through his trainer that Pino is a love of a dog with his people. Pino does not seem to like having his hind quarter sniffed or handled and that seems to be a trigger for him with dogs or people. Pino does initiate play with other dogs but escalates quickly if they sniff his back.
Pino's trainer feels that he would be a great dog for someone who hunts as he is totally reliable with a remote collar just on tone. A single person with no other pets or children who is looking for a dog to hang out with, take rides in the car and an occasional romp in the woods would work for Pino quite well.
Pino does not do well with other animals because of his sensitivity in his hind quarter. He will need a strong leader willing to continue the training he has been receiving. This special person must be understanding of Pino's quirks, be VERY experienced with a remote collar and Pino will respond in kind.

|Adoption Update: Moses|
Helped by GSP Rescue NE Supporters
There was definitely a feeling of excitement as we all stood around waiting for the animal rescue transporter to arrive. After the driver unlocked the rear of the trailer, we watched as a most beautiful, handsome GSP came strolling down the ramp. But what caught our eyes was his rich dark brown coloring and the continuous wagging of his little tail, in sync with his body. Our Moses had arrived!
It is hard to believe that it only took him a few weeks to have us wrapped around his paw! "No dogs on the couch" rule lasted just 2 weeks and as I write this Happy Ending, Moses is stretched out sound asleep in "his" armchair snoring loudly.
Moses, 9.5 yrs old, quickly teamed up with our other 7yr GSP rescue, Henry, so neither rabbit nor squirrel is safe in our yard. One of his biggest loves is the twice-daily walk around the neighborhood. We have yet to met a person or dog that he does not like. And at the end of the day all he wants to do is lie by our feet or rest his head on our lap.
Our family wants to thank all the volunteers who donated their time and money to Moses' medical care. The removal of 12 teeth and attention to 3 small masses was worth every penny. He is truly a wonderful dog.
There is no question that a senior dog comes with many great qualities and we urge every prospective adopter to seriously consider opening their home and heart to a senior dog. They will be rewarded in ways beyond their imagination.

The Duprey's brought Bruin home as a pup in December, 1993. He spent a long and happy life with the Duprey's, welcoming new members of both their dog and human family. In 2008, after 15 years of loving and supporting the Duprey family, old age finally caught up with Bruin.
Boston was adopted by the Duprey family as a companion to both Bruin and the rest of the family. She was a silly dog with huge ears and long jowls. Boston's favorite thing was to play with the Duprey's 3 year old son. Unfortunately, Boston suffered from uncontrollable seizures. After only two years, Boston succumbed those seizures.
After Boston's passing, the Duprey's adopted Harley from a shelter in 2003. He is remembered as a gentle giant with a knack for calming the Duprey's special needs son, Kamden. Harley spent 6 wonderful years with the Duprey family.
GSP Rescue New England would like to thank the Duprey Family for their generous donation in memory of Bruin, Boston, and Harley.
