Home needed for bird dog

  1. As many of you know, I picked up a ~5 year old spayed german shorthaired pointer a while back from a guy terminally ill with cancer.
    She's a decent hunter and excellent companion, in or out of the house.
    I'm forced to find her a new home because she is NOT good around my other dogs. She's torn up my other female GSP a few times and got her pretty good again today.
    She's too good of a dog to put down, so I'm trying to find a home for her with someone who will hunt her and treat her right.
    She's an awesome dog (other than the fighting) - extremely loyal, obedient, and housebroken. She needs a home without any other dogs. She's fine around cats, kids, and livestock, and hasn't bothered my other mixed breed dog.
    I'd like to spend a little time with whoever may be interested to make sure I feel comfortable and to teach how to command her in the field vocally and with hand signals.
    Here's a picture of her soon after I got her. She's lost weight since as she was too fat.

  2. quick bump.
    Come on folks - someone out there must need a great dog (aside from her lack of doggie social skills :grin:! She really is well trained and is an excellent birddog/companion.

    I'd take her in a minute if I didn't have a 105 pound Dobbie. Are you still headed out of country soon?
  4. Hey there Chief. I know you'd love this dog, but I can certainly understand your position.
    Going out of country is day to day, but I don't think it'll happen for a few months (probably elk season...they'll be out of luck though).
    I have been asked to go back to Hawaii this month for a different project but I'm trying to get out of that as well. I don't care if I see that place again for a while.
    How are things down south? Heard from Cochise lately. Hey Cochise - want a dog? :lol:

    Haven't heard from him in some time. I know he must be around because the wind has been blowing pretty hard down here.

    Bump For Coco


    Come on, You got love this dog.
  8. Coco has been sold!

    Coco has been sold to a hunting family (with no other dogs) in Chino Valley.
    I'm already starting to regret giving her up although it's for her own (and my vet bill) good. She was a fantastic dog.
    Happy hunting Coco!
