This is Mel, a 4-year-old female German Shorthaired Pointer from Hartford, WI. We rescued Mel three years ago. She was deathly afraid of men with facial hair, and had never seen stairs before. When I brought her home, she ran (at full speed) for 45 minutes at the end of a reel leash. ALL of the neighbors thought I was nuts for rescuing this nut, but she is our sweetheart, and is calm inside and runs like the wind outside. As the picture depicts, a hard run merits a nap on the bed! Photo sent by Thom.
