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.”




This is a story about Zack, a year old GSP that we brought into our rescue in December 2011.  He was adopted and was transported to New York to a family that would love and care for him for 6 years.

In July 2018 his family could no longer care for him and drove him back to Louisiana and placed him back into rescue. We always take our dogs back!

As is always the case, he was lost and depressed.  It’s so sad when they are abandoned.

It gets worse for Zack.  He has a huge lump on his larynx and further testing is needed to determine if the lump is cancerous or something else.  Due to lack of funds, we are limited to what testing we can get done.  He needs a biopsy, an examination by an oncologist and any necessary treatment. 

We are saddened by this turn of events and asking for prayers as we work to get this beautiful boy healthy again. He’s worth it and one awesome dog.



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.”
