Adoptable pet spotlight: Colonel

Are you looking for a sweet, pet-friendly dog to add to your family? Meet Colonel! This 4-year-old german shorthaired pointer is available for adoption through the Wisconsin German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue.

My name is Colonel. I am a 4 year old, 75 pound purebred liver roan german shorthaired pointer with HUGE paws and a BIG gentle heart! I am the sweetest gentle giant you will ever meet! I know all of my basic commands such as sit, stay, lay down and many more. I LOVE to play fetch! I am house broken and crate trained (although I don’t care for it and really don’t need to be crated.)

I don’t walk on a leash very well; however, I am working on it. Did I mention I LOVE to play fetch? I also love to snuggle up and sleep next to my person in bed. I am getting along great with my foster brother Marley and his sister the cat (but I don’t think she quite likes me too much).

Did I mention I LOVE to play fetch as much as possible? Just to ensure I am pulling my weight around the house, I do have a tendency to counter surf because I am keeping the counters clean for you so you don’t have to! I also will do your dishes by licking your plate clean when you are done.

I travel excellent in vehicles. I will let you know if a stranger comes to the door by barking; however, I am very social with people and other animals. Oh yeah, the most important thing is I LOVE to play fetch anytime, everyday!

Colonel is available for adoption through the Wisconsin German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue, Inc., in Alma, WI. Please visit the website and fill out an application if you are interested in adopting Colonel.
