We adopted this gentle sweet heart German Shorthaired Pointer (though we think he may have a touch of weimaraner to him) two days ago >W< His original name was Otto and we were kinda gonna keep it because we figured it would be best to keep a name that he is familiar with it but it turns out he did not respond to that name at all XD so we took advantage of that and renamed him Thor because we did not like the name Otto ^^(). He is an absolute love X3 he gets along with our other two dogs very well, he is wonderful on a leash and he has a very shy and laid back personality. The shelter said he is 3 years old but my mom and I don't think that is true because his teeth is way too white for a three year old dog and he is actually smaller then Loki who is also a German Shorthaired pointer. We think he is about 1 to 1 1/2 years old so basically he is still a puppy.
When we got him it turns out he was brought back three times. First person brought him back because he was drafted over seas which is understandable. The second was a couple that had a newborn baby that brought him back because he grabbed their baby's pacifier and pull it out of its mouth (-_- I am upset with that because 1 you don't get rid of a dog just because he grabs your child's pacifier and 2 you don't put a big dog with lots of energy with a baby, you just don't) and the third person got rid of him because he chewed on things (we were easily able to curb this behavior by giving him a hollow bone with a little peanut butter in it)
And yes I know he is a bit skinny it turns out he was kept in a pen with other dogs and when animal shelter tried to feed him the other dogs stole his food before he could eat it. He is now getting two nice big meals a day with scraps from our meals with it ^^
He does have a couple of issues, one he is not completely potty trained and if we don't catch him in time he will pee or poop on out patio (at least he does it out there instead of doing it in our house >.<) but thats nothing we can't handle, we just have to teach him not to do that
second he had some seperation issues but I think he will stop that once he get settled into his new home and the third one is that he jumps a little but that something we can easily teach him not to do.
