Generous Donation from Southern AZ GSP Club!

We are beyond thrilled to announce that the Southern Arizona German Shorthaired Pointer Club ( has generously donated FORTY cases of Alpo canned dog food to our rescue dogs!  The club members have been friends of the rescue since our formation in 2011.

AZBDR volunteers and rescue dogs always have a great time at club events such as AKC Hunt Tests, Fun Hunts, and field training workshops.  Our mascot Gatsby would go for the food alone (he loves potlucks)!

Thank you again to the wonderful SAGSPC members for their support of pointing breed rescue dogs!

We Urgently Need Foster Homes!

Right now, more than ever, we need foster homes to care for pointers in need.  Fostering saves dogs from having to end up in the pound, helps save them from euthanasia if they are in a shelter, and temporarily fostering a dog can help their owners know their dog is safe until they can bring them back home.

We have FOUR dogs who are in urgent need of foster homes and two are older dogs currently in the Pima County shelter (PACC).  All of them are loving, wonderful dogs who are housebroken, know basic commands, and get along great with other dogs & children of all ages.

To read each dog's story, please visit our FOSTERS NEEDED page and consider helping a homeless dog.  The rescue pays for all vet care and can provide you with a collar/leash/ID tags, crates, professional training, foster-mentoring, and any day-to-day questions that may arise.  All you need to provide is a safe, loving home and food.

Meet our four newest faces!

CHESTER is a 5 year old purebred German wirehaired pointer who was rescued from the Pima County shelter in a wretched state of neglect (very skinny, matted & filthy coat). Here he is after his trip to the groomer!  Chester is doing great in his foster home with his GWP foster brother Hunter.

BO is an approximately 2-3 year old pointer who is was brought to the Humane Society in Sedona for being "too hyper/energetic."  Well, folks... he's a young pointer!  Of course he has boundless energy.  Bo is having a lot of fun going on long hikes with his foster family and romping around the yard with his pointer foster brother Chance!

RHEA (formerly "Schatzi") is a young female purebred German shorthaired pointer who was brought to the Humane Society in Sedona by the police.  Yes, the police.  She allegedly killed a stray cat and was picked up & taken to the pound.  Rhea is a smart and driven girl who might make a nice little field prospect.  She's currently in foster care where her family is helping her become more confident and overcome her insecurity & anxiety.  As you can see, Rhea is a very sweet and cuddly girl.  She has so much potential, we are looking forward to watching her blossom!

VALENTINE is an approximately 10 year old purebred Vizsla who was brought into the Pima County shelter as stray.  Although he has a severely atrophied right rear leg he gets around great on his three good legs.  He will be taken to the vet to ascertain his lameness and also to diagnose/treat the polyps around his eyes and small black lesions on his body.  It is likely that he has Valley Fever and melanoma, but we won't know until we get his lab results.  Valentine is heading to a wonderful foster home in Phoenix early in the week thanks to the Rio Salado Vizsla Club.  He's one of the absolute sweetest and most gentle dogs we've ever rescued and he was clearly an indoor dog because his manners are utterly perfect.  He will be available for adoption through the Rio Salado Vizsla Club once he is fully vetted.
