We've been busy these last few weeks. We can now be found on Facebook:


We also have a new dedicated email addy:  pointingdogrescue@gmail.com


Beyond our wonderful technical achievements we have also seen several homes found for dogs. Benny, who caught the eye of many folks is the most recent to be adopted to a new home. Hopefully in the future we'll have some new pics of Benny to post for you.

In sadder news, there are many new dogs in need of homes. The following is a list of the dogs we are currently looking for homes for. Please note that dogs in PDRC's care will have our email as a contact. We do list as a courtesy dogs in need of homes that are in the care of other rescue organizations. It should be noted that all adoptions are through them and that our listing is just a courtesy. While we believe them to be reputable and the dogs well cared for and vetted, we strongly suggest you do your homework and cannot be held liable for any interactions between you and non-PDRC organizations, including adoptions.

Baron - Southcentral Ontario

Baron is now being fostered by PDRC. He is a 3 year old, neutered male German Wirehaired Pointer. Baron loves to play with toys, particularly tennis balls. He will carry his toys on his walks if allowed. He needs some leash work as he does tend to pull on lead. He is housebroken and will not go to the bathroom unless there is grass to go on. He is a playful, goofy guy that knows hand signals and listens well. 

 For more information on Baron, please contact us at pointingdogrescue@gmail.com

Ginger - Vancouver Island, British Columbia

Ginger is a spayed, 6 year old female German Shorthaired Pointer. She loves to run and play with Kongs and balls. She is a very loving girl that greets people without hesitation and gets along well with other dogs. Ginger loves kids, travels well and has good recall off leash. She is housebroken and learned to use a doggie door very quickly.

Gunther - Southcentral Ontario

Gunther is a German Shorthaired Pointer cross, although he does look purebred. Raised in a sledding kennel, Gunther has now made the transition to house pet and is loving the attention. He will do best in a home with no other dogs as he can be jealous of attention given to other dogs. He is housebroken and excellent on lead. He has experience in dog sledding, bikjoring, skijoring, and several other athletic pursuits. He would make a great pet for someone who is active and enjoys winter sports. Gunther is excellent with people and loves to be cuddled.

Oakley - Squamish, British Columbia

Oakley is a GSP X. Oakley is in urgent need of a new home. She was removed from a neglectful home where she spent long hours confined by herself in a crate in the laundry room. She is not good with small dogs but plays well with large dogs. She is housetrained although it is obvious from the urine stains on her rump that her previous caregivers left her for hours in the crate unable to relieve herself until she could no longer hold it. This sweet girl would really like someone to give her the life she deserves. She is temporarily being fostered in a kennel situation. 

 If you can help Oakley in any way, please email Lichen at lichen-t@shaw.ca 

Spidey - Winnipeg, Manitoba

Spidey is a 7 yr old German Shorthaired Pointer. He is a very friendly, energetic dog. He loves people, including children. Unfortunately, a member of his human family has developed severe allergies and he needs to find a new home. 


For more information on Spidey, please email us at pointingdogrescue@gmail.com 

Jack - Alberta

Jack is a 4 year old, neutered male German Shorthaired Pointer. He is currently in the Edmonton area. He is very friendly, loves to play ball and run. He gets along well with other dogs and is very playful. For more information, please contact Sylvie at casdda@hotmail.com - * This is not a PDRC adoption *

We're Incorporated!

Pointing Breed Rescue Canada is now an incorporated non-profit. Charitable status papers have been submitted to the government so hopefully we will have full status soon and can begin more formal activities.

In the meantime, I am pleased to report that most of our previously listed dogs have found homes. Pablo is still searching for one so if you are in western Canada, please consider him. I will repost his information below along with Ben's, the latest dog in need.

Pablo - 1 yr old neutered male in Alberta I’m a 9 month old GSP and in the process of getting neutered. I’m quiet, happy, playful and well tempered, and am well socialized with people, other dogs, and will chase cats. I’m a little cautious when we first meet, but I warm up just fine in no time at all! I working on being house broken. I love to play with toys. I travel well, and am used to being in a kennel.

Please contact Sylvie (Tiashanah@hotmail.com ) if you are interested in adopting me!  

Ben - 7 yr old neutered male in Brantford, Ontario Ben is owned by a senior who can longer handle his exercise needs since the passing of her husband late last year. A beautiful animal, he needs an active owner and would prefer a home with no small children as he is not used to being around them.

For more information on Ben, please contact: Heather (nuthatchkennels@gmail.com)
