Whisper is a 7-8 year old female German Short-haired Pointer. This lovely girl has a very very sad past, she was found on the streets of Spain heavily pregnant and had been trying to survive for quite some time, we think she had been used as breeding all her life but had been caught by another dog and that is why they threw her out like rubbish.
When she first came into the rescue she was in a terrible state and terrified the same night she gave birth to 8 puppies one died but was still not right and had to be rushed to the vets where she was operated on and 3 more babies were found one of which was dead.
The rescue had no space at the time so the lovely lady put Whisper and her babies in her bathroom which was safe and most importantly free from germs and there she stayed. I met her not long after she had her babies video below. She was really very very sad and scared but going back nearly 2 months later the change in her is amazing – she has now finished mummy duties a very good mummy with her babies who are equally lovely she is now just being Whisper and living in the house with the other dogs, she was very relaxed in the house with the other dogs but you can tell its Violet she loves she obviously has a big heart and despite her years of neglect she is slowly putting it behind her.
Whisper loves the sofa and would sit there all day if you let her, she is good with the other dogs and but really not fussed about them she just ignores them. She has come on leaps and bounds but has not been taken out and about yet or on the lead a lot.
She is going to need a home that has maybe had experienced of puppy farm dogs and understands how scary they find the outside world, she has done fab in the home and come on very quickly but it may be slower out and about, a rural home is going to suit her and a quiet home, not a family home which would be too busy for her.
She would be fine as an only dog as she is not too fussed about the other dogs but equally if you had a dog that was similar to her and not looking for playmate then perfect. A gentle loving sensitive girl who actually smiles too when happy.
Whisper has been spayed, vaccinated, chipped and has her own Pet Passport if you feel you could be the right home for our lovely girl please email us for our questionnaire in the first instance.
