Matching homeless GWPs with loving owners is our primary goal
In order to educate and entertain those interested in German Wirehaired Pointers, we started this blog. The blog will be bimonthly, and the first one will appear in June. Topics will include health, obedience, behavior, rescue stories, grooming tips, volunteer highlights and more. Upcoming stories planned are hypothyroidism and information about how dogs end up in rescue. Please follow us and send any ideas you have for stories. We believe that the more we educate people the more likely we are to accomplish our mission of matching homeless GWPs with loving owners.
National GWP Rescue is a nationwide rescue program whose volunteers work tirelessly to provide funding, foster homes, medical care and training for GWPs found in shelters, animal control facilities and to those GWPs whose current owners are unable to provide a suitable situation.
Working hand- in-hand with governmental and local shelters, NGWPR provides a safe and responsible home for GWP’s in need. Placed with an experienced GWPCA member, fostered GWPs that have been neglected, untrained or have medical issues quickly blossom as they are readied for their “forever” homes.
Prior to releasing our rescued GWPs for adoption, volunteers provide obedience, manners, and house training. We hold to the philosophy that a mannerly dog has a better chance of fitting into a new household.
NGWPR believes that Wires were designed to hunt and unlike some other rescue programs, we are happy to place dogs with field experience or bird instinct with potential owners who enjoy hunting behind a Wire. However, NGWPR insists that any rescue dog first be a house dog and companion, then a weekend hunting partner.
