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.

      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog (short coat). THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING. WE KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THIS DOG. CONTACT THE PEOPLE IN THE BIO, NOT THE RESCUE. Callaghan Von Billheim Born: 3/30/2011 (6 years old) Callaghan is a six-year-old male German Shepherd Dog with a bright and intelligent disposition. He is in perfect health and has full veterinary records and is completely up-to-date with his vaccines and care. Callaghan was bred in Hawaii by Von Billheim German Shepherds and belongs to a military family based in the Jacksonville, FL area. Callaghan has received extensive training and knows vocal and visual commands and walks comfortably on a leash. He is an active and athletic dog who loves to ride in the car and even loves camping (the attached photographs are of Callaghan on the Appalachian Trail in Georgia). Callaghan needs to be in a home without cats or children. He would be an excellent fit for a couple or individual with experience with large dogs and breeds like the GSD. He would not be a good fit for people who have never owned a large dog or are unfamiliar with the breed. Callaghan needs a new home because he does not like to be around children and cannot be around cats or other small household pets. He is an excellent guard dog, very protective, and tends to bond with one individual in the household. Callaghan has a lot of love to give and will make a great companion and friend for the right family.

      Breed: German Shepherd Dog
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Dunnellon, FL
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog (medium coat). Bella is a 16 month old female GSD. She is very high energy and is always on the go. Bella is small (50 pounds) but very agile and quick. She has had some basic obedience training but needs a very experienced GSD owner. This is NOT a dog for the first time GSD owner. She is going to need an owner that is willing to spend time with a certified trainer experienced with GSDs to help her overcome some of her behavior issues such as resource guarding and dog aggression on leash and provide the daily exercise she needs to work off her energy. Bella is very smart and will take advantage of an owner that is not GSD savvy. Bella is house broken, crate trained, and uses the dog door with no issues. She is very loving and sweet to her people but is very protective of her home and property. She does live with several dogs in rescue but would be happiest as an only dog. Because of her strong personality, she will not be adopted into a home with children or small animals. If you want to meet Baby Bella then go to our website www.GSRFL.org and complete the Adoption Application. Once you are approved then you can setup a meet and greet. Questions?
