Hi, I'm Elroy. I was adopted on July 6!
German Shorthaired Pointer Mix
Brown and White
Not ready to adopt?
Elroy is available to Sponsor!
Elroy is a very active and adventurous 2-month-old German Shorthaired Pointer mix puppy that was raised in foster care with his mother Tippy and his six siblings. He will likely weigh 60-70 pounds as an adult. With a fun and playful personality, Elroy is always on the go and he will do best with a very active adopter. He is also a bit of an escape artist, so his environment will need to be secure. This happy-go-lucky boy just wants to have fun! He is smart and he’s learning his basic commands such as come and sit. Elroy gets along great with other dogs and he has been introduced to felines.
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! Elroy 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.
