Welcome 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.

Although German Shorthairs are historically a hunting breed, our primary focus is to place dogs as non-hunting, indoor family members. GSPs will be adopted only to homes  with physically fenced yards.  Apartments are not a suitable home situation for Shorthairs.

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.”

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.

We believe in:

  • Homecooked/Raw meals
  • Responsible vaccination ( we are not ANTI-vax!!)
  • Titering
  • Safe, humane training with positive reinforcement (not the Cesar Millan method)
  • The companion is a member of the family (not property)


Jett is a handsome 4 yr old neutered LabraDane.  He’s a gentle, lovable pup with a loving, playful personality.  Jett is very quick to learn and equally eager to please.  He is house and crate trained.  Jett loves his daily walks and playtime runs in the back yard but especially loves to be around his humans and cuddle up with them on the couch.  He does very well sleeping in his crate at night or on the floor beside the bed.  Giving his person kisses and getting belly rubs are a must!

Jett would do well in a home as the only dog and with an active family or with a medium energy female.  .

Like any new adoption, Jett will require loving patience and understanding with his adjustment to a new home and lots of positive reinforcement to boost his confidence.

Don’t let the ‘black dog’ mentality stop you from considering this boy.  Black dogs deserve love too.  

Please read our Adoption Process to familiarize yourself with what we expect for our dogs.  A link to complete an application is provided at the bottom of the Adoption Process.
