Brown is a solid orange male pointer from Lebanon. He was found with other pointers in a backyard. It was summer and they were left with no shelter, water or food. The pointers were all very skinny and emaciated. The owner used them previously for breeding but they were no longer of use. Unfortunately, due to financial circumstances, they were left without food.
Luckily the volunteers of the Lebanese shelter decided to rescue the dogs and take care of them until they find their forever homes. Pointers In Need is helping these dogs to find their new families in the UK. Any vet checks, the passport and the travel is all being arranged between the Lebanese charity and Pointers In Need so please don’t look past these dogs. They really deserve the warmth of a home and to be part of a family.
The volunteers say that Brown is a bit shy and timid. His sweet eyes show that his past was not a great place to be and some work will need to be done to help him regain his confidence. Perhaps a family with another dog that will show him the way? He is leash trained but he will need to learn indoor manners having lived in a backyard previously. He hasn’t been cats or children tested but this can be discussed if of interest. Brown is approximately 6/7 years old.
We don’t know if Brown was used for hunting and his hunting instincts (being a pointer) will need to be checked. Training including recall will be needed and this will help him massively with his confidence and will start to open up to his new family. Pointers In Need can offer support on this thanks to our gundog/working dog expert.
Brown does not have any apparent health issues and he is completing his vet checks including bloods, neutering and vaccinations. He is around 20/25kgs and is now ready to travel.
