Pet of the Month
Ms. Red is currently 14 years and 2 months old. She came from Nebraska. When she was eight years old, her former owners took her to be put to sleep. She had and has arthritis in her back legs and shakes when standing. The vet at the time said he had a rescue that he would get her into and that is how she came to Great Plains Pointer Rescue. (GPPR).
We met GPPR at Game Fair and when we looked at available kiddos on the website where her pic won our hearts. Her foster mom brought her over one Sunday afternoon in September to visit and she never left.
Ms. Red just retired from her volunteer job in Animal Therapy at Guardian Angels in Elk River. Before Guardian Angels, she was a volunteer at the Wellstead in Rogers. She was well loved by her residents and they would often ask her to spend the night. She would decline those invitations though.
She cannot get enough attention. She loves to give kisses, snuggle and go for car rides. Unlike other kids, she LOVES to go to the vet. There are people there, and they can give her even more attention.
Her favorite toy would be her elk and deer antlers and her teeth show it. Her teeth win the prize for a14 year old.
Her favorite food? Well that can change weekly, but she daily eats fresh blueberries, strawberries,
raspberries and blackberries. She is also a huge fan of lettuce, carrots, green beans, cauliflower and pumpkin.
She also goes for chiropractic care as well as cold laser therapy for her arthritis.
What can we say; we are in love with this princess.
