Hi! My name is Denny James, I am guessed to be a 2.5 year old german shorthaired pointer mix. I currently weigh 49 lbs. I have spent most of the last year living outside with other dogs in West Virginia. It got awfully cold out there, so I am so happy to be living inside a house. Maybe I could come live in your house as my forever home?
Denny James is fully commited to living his best dog life! When he runs he runs like the wind, when he sniffs he leaves no leaf unturned, when he sleeps he is like a puddle of fur. He is attentive, curious, alert, and always aware of where the people are. He also gives and receives affection freely.
In his foster home he lives with 2 other dogs and enjoys running and playing with them in a fenced yard. He is a high energy dog and would do best with a fenced yard where he has room to stretch his legs, or an owner to take him on walks, etc. to keep him stimulated.
Denny has adjusted well to indoor living and is now comfortable with the sounds and smells of a home, a big adjustment after spending so much time outdoors! He spends his time following the people around, always wanting to be in involved. Denny is very aware of boundaries such as doorways and intensely investigates anything new he encounters, looking to his people for reassurance when he is concerned. Being so interactive and also food motivated, he picks up on commands quickly, already getting the hang of his name, sit, and come. He has also learned to to stay off the counters (mostly!). Currently he is learning what is a toy and what isn’t.
All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Ashland, VA for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Ashland.
This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
