Bonnie - Pointers in Need

Beautiful Bonnie’s rehoming story.

Our story began when we adopted our first ointer Poppy, from a rescue centre in Sussex.  Poppy was three when we adopted her and we had 15 lovely years with her but sadly she passed away in June.  After a while, we decided that we would like another dog, after looking around with little success, we did a google search and Pointers in Need came up.  We saw all the lovely Pointers available on the website, and completed the paperwork, we then spoke to fantastic Caroline who told us about the adoption process. We had a successful home visit from the lovely Karin and chose a couple of the dogs on the adoption page which we were interested in.  Caroline called to let us know that after speaking to the team,they felt that Bonnie would be suited to us.  We went to Surrey to meet Bonnie in her foster home, where a lovely lady called Jill was looking after her.  Jill had done a fantastic job and we fell in love with Bonnie and she liked us too.  We rang Caroline and told her we would like to adopt Bonnie, Claire said “That’s great!” so we completed the adoption forms. 

We picked Bonnie up on 9th November and have had her for 3 weeks now and she has settled in really well.  Bonnie is so good, she is good on the lead, lays on her bean bag and is such good company for us.  Bonnie is also good for my brother who is disabled and in a wheelchair, she is so protective of him.  Bonnie is an absolute darling, we thought we would never find such a lovely dog again, one so sweet and calm like Poppy.  We can’t thank the fantastic Pointers in Need team enough, you have all been fantastic and  very helpful. If we need advice we only have to pick up the phone and there is someone to give advice and support.

I can definitely recommend Pointers in Need and the team.

Thank you, Derek and Jason proud new owners of Bonnie.


There are so many Pointers that need homes and many more still that are waiting in the wings to come onto our books.
