German Shorthaired Pointer Mix
Brown and White
Not ready to adopt?
Avery is available to Sponsor!
Avery (aka Tank) is a 2-month-old German Shorthaired Pointer mix puppy that was raised in foster care with his mother Tippy and his six siblings. He’s a big boy and will likely weigh 60-70 pounds as an adult. Avery is a sweet, mischievous and high-energy puppy that is smart and treat-motivated. He is starting to become familiar with the harness and leash, and for now he is pretty good at using a potty pad. Avery knows how to sit for a treat, and he is very confident with an alpha personality. He is a very friendly and outgoing puppy that enjoys meeting new people. He enjoys every sort of puppy toy and loves to chew. He also enjoys digging in the garden and he relishes uprooting your favorite plants!
German Shorthaired Pointers are known for being an extremely high-energy breed. A walk around the block is simply a warm-up for these dogs. They require serious daily walking, running, hiking, swimming or joining you for bike rides. They can be vocal and are not good apartment dogs. Obedience training is a must to prevent unwanted destructive behaviors. Due to their very bouncy and rowdy natures, they are not a good match for young children or older adults. These pups might be great candidates for agility training or advanced obedience training. If you are looking for a mellow couch potato, this dog is NOT for you! Avery is looking for an adopter that can continue his training. He is currently in foster care and meet and greets can be arranged ONLY after your online application has been approved.
Due to COVID and high demand, preference is given to residents of Monterey County and Santa Cruz County.
