GunnerWelcome to​​
New Beginnings German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue

“New Beginnings German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, is an all volunteer group whose purpose is to find permanent loving families for dogs that, through no fault of their own, find themselves without homes. Many of us have had countless years of loving and caring for our own Shorthairs.”

New Beginnings GSP Rescue is a holistic/alternative rescue. We subscribe to a natural, holistic approach to animal care. Holistic medicine, by its very nature, is humane to the core.

Although German Shorthairs are historically a hunting breed, our primary focus is to place dogs as indoor family members. GSPs will be adopted only to persons with physically fenced yards.

Our foremost responsibility is the security and happiness of each dog who comes our way. Their new home must truly be a “New Beginning” for them. “Helping dogs with people problems.”


 

Animal Drug Safety Communication: FDA Alerts Pet Owners and Veterinarians About Potential for Neurologic Adverse Events Associated with Certain Flea and Tick Products

September 20, 2018
“The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is alerting pet owners and veterinarians to be aware of the potential for neurologic adverse events in dogs and cats when treated with drugs that are in the isoxazoline class.
Since these products have obtained their respective FDA approvals, data received by the agency as part of its routine post-marketing activities indicates that some animals receiving Bravecto, Nexgard or Simparica have experienced adverse events such as muscle tremors, ataxia, and seizures. Another product in this class, Credelio, recently received FDA approval. These products are approved for the treatment and prevention of flea infestations, and the treatment and control of tick infestations.”

READY FOR ADOPTION

QUINCY

Quincy is thought to be a German Shorthaired Pointer mix.  He’s a sweet boy, around 3 yrs old with a medium energy level. He is curious and eager to learn new things. Quincy was a victim of the Texas floods. He was never claimed in the shelter and we rescued him at the last minute from a kill shelter. He appeared to have never had a loving or gentle hand. He is crate trained and good on a leash. Quincy is a big boy so older children would be best for him to be around. He does not do well with cats.

Quincy will need patience and TLC but should make someone a loyal companion. He will bring smiles and adventures into your life!
