2 GSPs Can't Go to Germany, Despite Their Breed
Alamogordo, NM to N Waterboro, ME
July 1120– 12 and July 18 - 19

One of our service members is being deployed and has to go to Germany for 3 years. She has 2 German Shorthair Pointers that can't go with her. She was trying to be responsible and waited until she was close to retirement before getting these dogs because she was assured she would remain stateside for the last years of her career. Suddenly she is in the impossible position of having to give up her 2 best friends when she was really trying to do the right thing from the very beginning.

The national GSP rescue has found a fantastic home for the two of them together – in Maine! Their mom is heading out THIS MONTH, so we have no time for this transport to fail!!

This WILL be a two-weekend transport, but they must leave NM the weekend of t he 11th because their mom won't be available after that!!

It is IMPERATIVE that this run fills – please help!!!!

PASSENGERS (per their mom):

Odin is approximately 3 or 4 years old and is a very playful (neutered) male. He likes to play with rope knotted balls and squeaky toys (hardier ones since he will destroy a stuffed animal squeaky). He prances as though he is in show and points although I do not hunt so I have no idea what he would do if given some training and allowed to “bird.” He likes to cuddle with you in the evening on the couch if allowed, but sleeps on his own dog bed at bedtime. He is very intelligent and likes his “job”—he patrols=2 0the yard and through the house and likes to “protect” by standing close to you.

Freya is a 6 or 7 year old spayed female who is a very sweet girl and I frequently call her Princess. She just wants to be nearby and after she feels assured you are going to “stay put” in a room she curls up on the floor and just watches you. She doesn’t play much but occasionally will pick up a squeaky toy and run around the yard tossing her head and squeaking the toy. When I first brought her=2 0home she escaped, climbed the fence and even would “muscle” through a radio-electric fence. Over time I tried many things and finally realized that all she was trying to do was get back into the house. (I had them outside in the yard while I was at work and when she escaped she usually just stood at the front door.) I installed a dog door and turned off the radio fence within a week. She has been perfectly happy being able to come and go between the house and yard and is a happy and well adjusted girl who also sleeps on her own bed although would jump at the chance to curl up on the foot of my bed.

Shots are all up to date and the dogs will be accompanied by health certs and their vet records.
