About Pointer OJ
Sex: Male Age: 6 years
OJ is being fostered in the UK and is 6 years old
OJ is being fostered in the UK living with a family whom have two teenage children but he would love a forever home with a family that can give him the love and attention that he has become accustomed to.
OJ is a very affectionate, loving boy who is always trying to please. Whilst living with his foster family he has also been living alongside three other English Pointers and four cats. OJ generally keeps himself to himself and is not interested in the cats whatsoever so a home with cats would be fine but he has not been tested with other small furries. He gets on well with the other dogs but he doesn’t mind taking himself off to his crate for a bit of time by himself. OJ does love human interaction and when he wants your attention he gives you a little nudge with his nose. There is not a mean bone in this boys body, so we think he would be suitable for a family with or without pets/children.
OJ loves going out for walks and playing fetch with a ball, in a secure paddock. He is eager to get going on walks so can pull on the lead initially but all in all he learns quickly and he is better on the lead than some of our other Pointers.
OJ loves settling down on the sofa with his other furry friends but sleeps in a crate at night without any fuss.
OJ has had some recall training in a secure paddock and he has responded very well to this. He does get distracted at times when he sees birds due to his hunting background, however that being said he is not particularly prey driven. OJ sometimes finds it hard to settle in the house but somebody that can give him reassurance and understanding and he will come on leaps and bounds.
OJ really is a wonderful dog who will make a fantastic family pet. He will give you lots of love and will be a loyal companion.
