Foster or Adopt Boone - Gorgeous Senior German Shorthaired Pointer and retired therapy dog

 Meet Boone! Look at this gorgeous face!!!!!!! Boone is a 12 year old german shorthaired pointer mix. He is a big guy weighing 72 pounds.  Boone is a retired therapy dog and current couch potato, if you allow him on the couch!  He is well trained as you have to be in order to be a therapy dog. The family is moving at the end of the month unexpectedly and had no luck renting a place that allowed dogs.
Boone considers himself a lapdog and would curl up on the couch if you let him although he is trained not to. He is great with other dogs and very good with children of all ages. We have a 3 and 1 yr old and he is gentle with them. He was a certified pet therapy  
dog for a while. He does have a fear of thunderstorms like a lot of dogs and will want to be by your side to get through it. He likes to take walks especially when he can be leash free and is very good about following commands. He's been a faithful dog for 11 1/2 yrs and we are very sad to have to find him a new home.   Foster home needed!  If you would like to foster or adopt Boone please email for more information and an application. Boone is in Atlanta and we will arrange transportation to NY.
