I currently foster through GSP Care of Ohio. They are a great rescue and you should check out their webpage! http://gspcareohio.org/
While I purchased Remington from a breeder in MI, I will not be doing that again. I did NOT do my homework. I didn’t even think about getting a health clearance or anything like that from the breeder. Nor did I know about all the animals that die in shelters every day, many of them just as gorgeous and fun and loving as my Remi! This is not to say I think all breeding is morally wrong… responsible breeders and responsible owners that buy bred pups is one thing. They work very hard at confirming their dogs, keeping standards high and furthering the breed they represent.
However, what I did was wrong, and I definitely know it in my heart. Since moving into our new house, I have strived to do all that I can do in order to make it up to the dogs that died the day that I purchased Remington. I’ve helped in transports, fostered, donated, etc. The money I spent on Remington could’ve pulled another gorgeous pointer puppy out of a pound or foster home and given the rescue much-needed funds. I hope that if anyone sees this they will think twice about buying a puppy off the street and more about contacting their local rescue!
Past and Current Fosters:
– Robin / Roxie –
This girl is such a sweetheart! So dainty and well-behaved! She loved to take our shoes and clothes into her bed and snugle with them, she never ate them! We took Roxie into our home in April, and I drove her to her new family’s house in July 27th. She looked so happy and got along great with their 9 year old Great Dane mix. She seemed relieved to finally be able to outrun another dog, as Remi was a little too rowdy for her! Her new parents are retired, which means LOTS OF LOVE! So happy for my baby girl 🙂
