Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog. Hi my name is Gabbie and I'm a 10 year old German Shepherd looking for a new home and family. I'm a little unsure of why I'm here at the shelter and would really love to be back in a home as soon as possible. The shelter ladies tell me that I'm here because of some issues between me and another dog at my old home, who was much younger than me. I didn't mean to cause any tension and I hope someone will give me another chance to prove I can be the best doggie friend ever! I'm just a little older and set in my ways....kinda like some hoomans! Maybe you have a spot for a golden girl like me?

More About German Shepherd Dog Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Detroit Lakes, MN
      Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever (short coat). Hello- Moose here. I’ve been in a foster home for about a month now. It’s real nice. The boss (my cuddly foster mom) calls it Good-Boy Boot Camp & even though I’m not the youngest pup at the pound, I am WILLING TO LEARN. She says I respond best to “positive reinforcement” for new tasks and “behavioral extinction” for my vices… whatever all that means… she says she’s proud of me so it makes me happy. Here’s what we’ve done so far: Sit- easy as pie for me to do, but I do get distracted sometimes Stay- I like this one. I get loves for doing nothing! Lay Down- this is hard when I’m excited, but the boss say I’m doing well Bed- I love my crate and will go to bed when the boss says to. I eat there, it’s soft, has toys- what’s not to love? Hush- I love to talk. This one is hard for me but we are making progress every day. I know now not to bark to get what I want. Gentle- I can now take toys and treats politely. It’s not as fast as the old way, but I get way more compliments! Off- I get pretty bouncy when I’m excited, but it turns out that I don’t get cuddles when I bounce. Now I sit for collaring and cuddling. Outside- we always go to the bathroom outside; that’s easy. I’ve learned not to push the humans out the door; it’s more polite to wait for permission. Then we go to the “poop zone” in the woods to go potty. Grooming- I LOVE my ears cleaned. And the brush. Ooo the brush is good. My toes are ticklish but you can touch them while I sneak some kisses. The boss likes my white teeth but I don’t know why. Overall, I like this new place even though it’s temporary. The boss says that for my forever home, I would do best in a 1-dog house with a fence (I’m still trying to figure out this recall thing and I have a good hunting instinct). I got to play with some kids a couple weekends ago (I washed their faces really well) and I like them. They’re only beginning elementary school but were very considerate of me being in training. Even though my commands aren’t solid yet, I’m working hard to learn to be a good boy. I’m not giving up on earning my forever home and I’m hoping in my whole heart that you haven’t either.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Detroit Lakes, MN
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). Hi there everyone, My name is Dakota. I am a super cute ball of love. I am awesome with all people I meet and love to play in the park with my doggie buddies. I am still pretty young at only a year old and it doesn't seem like I've had a lot of housetraining in the past but I'm a smart little girl and with proper training I will learn in no time. Here is a little history on me: I came to Detroit Lakes on a fun adventure to become a service dog for the Patriot Assistant Dog program. I was so excited to be a service dog until I went in for my mandatory x-rays. That's when they found out I have hip dysplasia which disqualifies me from being a service doggie. I was pretty bummed until I found out I was headed over to the Marshmallow Foundation! All the ladies are so nice and take such good care of me. I even get to go play in the park and make new friends. I am told that now that I'm over here that I will find a nice family to adopt me, I'm sure hoping that happens soon, families sound amazing!! However with all that said I'm a little worried that it will take a while to find a family willing to adopt me knowing that in a few years I might need surgery on my hip. I am keeping my paws crossed that there is someone out there that will love me regardless and prepare for a possible surgery in the future. My hip doesn't bug me at all right now and you would never know something was wrong just by looking at me. I have a lot of love to give and I make everyone I meet smile with my adorable sweetness!

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (short coat). This beautiful girl is Jasmine and she is looking for a quiet home to call her own. Until recently she spent the majority of her life living outside on a chain. Despite her past, Jasmine is unbelievably sweet and gentle, loving every moment she spends being pampered and loved now that she has been rescued. We believe Jasmine is a lab mix and around 6 years old. Please help her find her own loving family!
