Meet Gilligan!

Gilligan is a two year old, lemon and white, male English Pointer. He was turned over to a shelter in Texas by his original owner because he would not hunt. It was stated Gilligan is "too nice to hunt".

An owner surrender into a high kill shelter is usually very bad news for a dog. But not for Gilligan! A wonderful lady saw Gilligan and was dedicated to getting him a second chance. He was pulled from the shelter and brought to OnPoint Rescue at a chance for him to find a home with a family that understands Pointers are more than just "hunting dogs".

Mr. Gilligan is beginning to settle in to his new foster home. He is one of the sweetest, most gentle Pointers. Gilligan came to his foster home very scared and uncertain of every noise and movement. He has made great adjustments in just the two weeks, but still has a journey ahead of him.

Gilligan needs a patient family that is willing to be patient with him and allow him to earn their trust. He may not have the confidence, but he has endless amounts of love that he is longing to share. Gilligan is crate trained and housebroken. He is current on vaccines, neutered, micro-chipped and on heartworm preventative.

We found Gilligan currently being cared for by OnPoint Rescue. They are a volunteer rescue group based in St. Louis, Missouri. They primarily rescue English Pointers and German Shorthaired Pointers from shelters and find them permanent homes. All of their dogs are cared for by foster homes.
