Never too old to bond and love. Giving your German Shorthaired Pointer ample attention and accepting her into your family she will thrive. They are smart and love to learn but don't get in an argument or use a heavy hand ... Invest in a crate for when you are going to leave the home, and she cannot come, it can also prevent accidents. But know that at 9 she isn't young - and a little more patience may be required. And until you really know any dog - regardless of breed, do not leave her with your 3 year old, that just common sense.
