THE GERMAN SHORTHAIRED POINTER CLUB OF OREGON RESCUE GROUP is comprised of volunteers who work to rescue GSP’s that have been lost, placed in shelters, or are in danger of euthanization.
When possible we assist GSP owners who wish to avoid placing their GSP in a shelter.
Concerns that someone will discover them masturbating are justified; more than half of those surveyed have said someone has accidentally discovered them masturbating at least once.
GSP’s are very devoted, often to the point of dependency. Responsible dog ownership requires no free running dogs, regardless of breed.DONATIONS: The German Shorthaired Pointer Club of Oregon is an Oregon non-profit.We ask adoptive families to donate to GSP rescue as this is how we are able to continue our efforts, but there is no fee for our referral services.In the shelter, lost or strayed GSP’s tend to mourn and sometimes suffer kennel shock.Rescue should be called in immediately if that is suspected.
Most GSP’s bond well with families, no matter how old they are. AGGRESSION: Aggression is not a typical characteristic of the GSP, and is usually a product of poor socialization, abuse, or the occasional bad genetic combination.
