COURTESY POST for Pointer Rescue - To apply go to their website @ 


Hi! My name is Gomer. I am about 5 years old and my foster family saved me from death row! I traveled for 2 days to get to my foster family and was a champ in the car. I don’t remember anything before my time in the shelter.

I joined my foster family on August 8th, 2022 and weighed 58 pounds but was a little skinny. Last time I went to the vet I weighed 70 pounds and they said I was perfect. I do love to eat. And I sit really nice before my food bowl is set on the ground. I was a bit of a wild child when I first got my foster family but I have learned a lot about being an indoor dog. I’m still working on not going potty inside the house but I haven’t had an accident in a long time. It’s usually only when they take me upstairs and I don’t know how to signal I need to go outside. When I am downstairs, I will stand by the door. Whoever my forever family is might need to continue to work with me on it. I have good manners in the kitchen as long as I am told no when needed. I love my kennel and will go right in as long as I’ve had some time to play before getting put away. I sleep in there for more than 9 hours at night without problems. Usually, the parents are waking ME up in the morning. I get really excited in the backyard and try to sniff out any holes in the fence. I have also tried to climb the fence to get to some pretty birds, so I will need a secure backyard. I also pull on my leash and am not the best at listening to come inside if my attention is on the birds and squirrels. But my foster mom says I am easily trainable!

The best part of me is that I LOVE toys and act like a silly puppy when you give them to me! I will run and jump and throw them in the air. I also LOVE my foster parents 7 year old girl. She can mess with my ears, give me big hugs, roll with me on the floor, use my tail as a microphone, and play with my feet and I don’t care at all!

I have done great with my foster parent's other two dogs. I play a lot with one of the dogs, but I also love humans. I could be an only dog or in a house with other dogs. I like to hang out and sleep or chew on toys/bones a lot. I am pretty low energy for a pointer. I am kept in my kennel during the day when my foster parents are at work and I’m totally fine. I know I will find the BEST family perfect for me that will help refine my manners! If you are looking for a bit of a couch potato who wants to love you and play with toys, I am totally your handsome man!
