I'm Flicker, Adopt Me!
German Shorthaired Pointer Mix | Adult | Male

5-year-old Flicker is a smart boy that loves to explore his surroundings. He's a pro at sniffing out incredible finds and is so treat-motivated he would be a blast to work with on basic manners training. Flicker is looking for that perfect family to feed his adventurous side and help him keep his mind sharp. Flicker has a positive history with other dogs. We recommend Flicker take a Basic Manners class where he can learn polite ways of seeking creature comforts in life. He currently weighs 59 pounds. Flicker's adoption fee has been prepaid by a generous donor.

Flicker's adopter must be at least 18 years old with valid state-issued identification. ARF encourages family members to participate in the adoption process, especially children and family dogs. Please visit ARF's web site for information on adoption and to view more cute canines.
