In addition to organizing the Greenpointer’s Sandy Benefit for Adopt NY, my roommate and I opened up our apartment to foster an amazing pup after Sandy. I thought I would share info on Swiss in hopes that maybe she ends up in loving local home!
Swiss is a one-year-old pit mix with a heart as huge as her vertical. As puppies tend to be, she is a mix of high energy playfulness and a lazy bum. Both Swiss and her future owner will be happiest with lots of exercise. Her current foster parents curb her energy with many walks and trips to the dog run.
Above all, Swiss is a lover. Lover of both humans (adult and children) and animals (dogs and from what her foster parents can tell, cats as well). With dogs she plays with lots of energy, lots of licking, but usually is the one to play submissively.
She will spare you from the grief that other puppies may give:
-chews objects known to be hers (she loves her kong)
– potty trained, crate trained, and rides well in cars
-And… she is not a barker! She does snort and oink, but that’s just adorable
Swiss’s current foster parents hope that her future owners will be able to provide her proper training. She is food motivated and has all the potential in the world.
As a special offer, Swiss’s award winning costume is included with adoption!
Visit Swiss’s Adopt NY profile or email info (at) greenpointers.com to inquire about adoption.
Greenpointers is on a fundraising roll!
We raised $10,000 for humans affected by Sandy and now we want to help our furry friends.

Below is info on the current situation at ADOPT NY
Many rescue groups and NY shelters sustained extensive damage to their facilities, as well as many fosters becoming homeless themselves.
So here’s what we’ve been up to at Adopt NY in response:
We’ve developed a plan to assist our 44 rescue groups as directly and quickly as possible, providing them with the two most important needs: new fosters and new supplies.
What’s needed now are supplies — things like mass quantities of food, animal crates, blankets, beds, toys, etc. Using our contacts in the pet industry, we’re going to get as many of these items for wholesale prices as possible, and aim to have everything shipped out and in our rescues’ hands ASAP.
Together with your help, we want to provide the assistance all our rescue groups who so desperately need.
