Sonny and Cher did not come from a puppy mill. They were previously in a home and given up by their owner to our partner rescue, North Shore Animal League America (NSALA), in New York. NSALA was not finding a suitable home for the Pointers and thought NDMR may give them a better shot at a great life in Colorado.
These two are healthy, spayed/neutered, love people, love other dogs, and are ready to find their forever home. It would be a terrible shame to coop them up and keep them from enjoying their true instinct and the great outdoors on a regular basis. An ideal family would have a large fenced back yard and a passion for the outdoors. A bird hunter would find these dogs to be his/her friend and a great assets in the field. Most likely, they will need training, but Sonny and Cher are smart and very eager to please. Although the video below only shows the dogs ambling around NMDR's play area, you can see how strong they are. Watching these two work together to sneak up on a bird is true poetry in motion.
If you could spread the word about these two and share this post with friends, it would increase Sonny and Cher’s chances of getting to spend the rest of their young lives working in the field. That’s all they want to do. We don’t want to find these dogs just any home, they deserve the “right home” for them. They have spent the entirety of their lives together and must be adopted together. (Adoption fees for the pair are essentially a two-for-one deal.)
Sonny and Cher are safe at the kennel, can stay for as long as they want, and get outside every day. NMDR knows it won’t happen overnight, but when you help us get the word out, the odds that the dogs are found by their potential forever family goes up exponentially.
Thank you for reading about Sonny and Cher and thank you, a thousand times, for all your support of National Mill Dog Rescue.
