My sister in law had to put down her GSP a while back. She's starting to feel the need to fill the void. Any recommendations? She doesn't hunt, so that isn't her objective.

You may want to consider the German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue. Many dogs at various ages. The two breeders I know will only sell to folks who plan to hunt the dog. In fact, the contract for my pup requires I test the dog to the NAVHDA NA test.

Thanks for the replies. I passed on the info. She advised that she was looking at 13 month old from the rescue.

For purely a pet, that's probably the best way to go. Getting a hunt-bred GSP and not hunting it has the potential to make both the owner and dog miserable. Good luck to her, I hope she finds a great rescue dog to enjoy and give a great life to.
