Good with other dogs, smart, fun-loving, curious, affectionate and playful - Trevor is an eager people pleaser.
Folks who know the breed understand German Shorthaired Pointers need to be given the right amount of exercise and mental stimulation to be happy - otherwise home life can become strained.
Trevor enjoys training, food and being in the company of his family. He also loves a good ear rub and can be a little cheeky at times.
While German Shorthaired Pointers are generally easy going, they should not be trusted around cats or small dogs due to their desire to chase.
This is a rare opportunity to adopt a dog that has been cherished and very well looked after.
Active, outdoorsey and fun loving singles or couples with plenty of time, energy and affection - ready to commit to a loyal, happy and healthy dog.
Trevor can cope alone however, this people orientated breed attach themselves deeply to their family which is why they are best suited for families where someone is often home or don't work long hours.
Couch potatoes or time poor folks - look elsewhere. That's not to say Trevor doesn't enjoy down time and cuddles too after an adventure.
Another friendly dog for company would be nice but is not essential.
While Trevor is good with kids we recommend homes where any kids are at least teenagers and only if gentle and calm around dogs. No dog deserves to be rough housed or exposed to a loud, chaotic environment.
Trevor will not suit homes where people live in very close proximity to each other with small outside areas e.g. villas, units, apartment complexes, terrace houses, strata complexes etc.
Trevor will not suit homes with residents that are:
Tolerance to Being Alone During the Day
GSPs are excellent alert dogs, and can be counted on to bark when something strange is around the property.
Confined to a small yard and without company for extended periods, Trevor is currently barking but can be commanded to stop.
Trevor will suit any of the following:
Medium - playful and moderately active.
When ON a lead ...
When OFF a lead ...
Takes off and won't come back.
