What we do

We help German Wirehaired Pointers who are found starving, homeless and ill, keeping them safe whilst we seek UK forever homes. We offer endless advice and support to make every adoption easy and enjoyable. 


We fund raise, so the essential costs can be covered until a forever home is offered, when the adopter pays the adoption fee. We don't spend money we don't have, and if there is any left over after any extra costs (usually vet bills) we donate to old Wires, or badly injured Wires, to help with their costs

We work with the rescue volunteers in Spain, France, Italy, Greece, Bulgaria, Serbia, Hungary and are up for any challenge.

We interact with all other reliable rescues and co-operate to help every dog.


We have knowledge and experience of the DEFRA export and import regulations using both TRACES and the Pet Passport Scheme. Working closely with other groups who are at the location of the rescue dog we can monitor every stage of the process which includes full health check, micro-chip, passport, rabies vaccination, character assessment and photos to display on GWP need UK home GALLERY FB group for anyone wishing to adopt.
