    Smile Rescues

    I have only ever had rescued dogs.
    My first dog was a German wire haired pointer x,she was fantastic, guardeed the family and brough up a litter of kittens for a lazy cat. She lived to 15 + and we couldn't bear to be without a dog so we got another German wire haired pointer X, she is now 15 and beginning to get a bit slow, again she is a wonderful dog but has a much less amiable temprament then our first one.
    At the moment we also have a German Shepherd x Rottwiler who is huge, 5 ft on her hind legs but as soft as butter. She is 3 and full of beans.
    My parents had a pedigree pointer who was a nurotic pain in the bum and lived to eight years but spent the last 3 as a real geriatric.
    Are German Wire Haired Pointers long lived dogs or have we just been lucky with our rescues?

    You might just have been lucky, the rescues probably have
    something called "hybrid vigor" due to not being 100% pure!!
    OR, did you ever consider it might very well have been YOUR good
    food and care and vet visits?!?!?

    Welcome to the garden!! Hug those doggers for me!
