German Shorthair Pointer


Congratulations to Guinness (now Mako), the German Shorthair Pointer, in your adoption today! Guinness started this journey tied up and discarded in Korea by his former owner. With the help of a great number of people, he's going to enjoy a happy and safe new life here in California, with a dad who loves him! Thank you to the volunteers and his foster families in California and in S. Korea for helping to make this adoption possible! Jon is a runner so our active boy will get plenty of exercise; this will make Mako very happy!
