Moonshine is a sweet and energetic 2-year old German Wirehaired Pointer. He retrieves Chuckit balls and dearly loves Tuffie dog toys, and sporadically puts them in my hand. He does well in his crate, uses the dog door/potties on command, and rides well in the car, crated or not. He leads well with the recommended collar, will stay off of furniture, if you wish, or will be right up there with you, if you desire. He's not destructive in the house, other than when my young male Wirehaired Pointing Griffon sees a squirrel in the backyard. They skid into every wall and door frame as they scramble to the back of the house and the dog door, with my dog AaaRoooing! away. I'm afraid he has fallen in with bad company. I rarely hear Moonshine bark.
Moonshine is friendly with most dogs. On occasion, a dominate or anxious female will cause a reaction. My mature Irish female falls in both categories. Moonshine is crated in the dining room at night and when we leave the house. I put my female's bed against his crate, confine them at night and feed them in the same room. They are now kissy face friends.
Moonshine will do best in an active home with a very tall fence. If you are looking for sweet companion, and possibly, a running partner, Moonshine is your guy!
