Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog (medium coat). www.TheLastResortRescue.com PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING THIS PET THE FIRST STEP IS TO FILL OUT OUR ADOPTION APPLICATION AVAILABLE AT THELASTRESORTRESCUE.COM. WE CANNOT RESPOND TO GENERAL INQUIRES ABOUT A DOG WITHOUT AN APPLICATION ON FILE. We rescued L-Roy and Alto from their owner who was being evicted and could no longer keep them. This is what their foster mom has told us so far: L-Roy is the father. He will be 8 on July 8. Alto is the son and he turned 7 a couple weeks ago. They are extremely bonded and must be adopted together. The previous owner said they are both good with kids, cats and rabbits. They are very good with my 2 dogs. They are both great off leash. They come when called and don't travel too far away. They are both love bugs.....love belly rubs. Neither has had any accidents in the house. Update 8/11/14 Both have adjusted well actually. They love to be outside....the previous owner let them out 3 times a day to go to the bathroom....nothing more. They know many commands, and are complete love bugs. I've noticed Alto likes to sleep in corners and on the floor rather than a dog bed. Alto has Mega esophagus. Basically Alto has a stricture at the bottom of his esophagus. If he eats a "normal" amount of food it will come back up. He gets 3 cans of canned pâté type food a day....small amounts every 20-30 minutes apart allowing the food time to pass into his stomach.

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.

WE CANNOT RESPOND TO GENERAL INQUIRES ABOUT A DOG WITHOUT AN APPLICATION ON FILE. There is simply no dog greater than Mater!! Mater came to the TLR for the second time in his life 4 1/2 years after his first adoption because his family was having their second child, which must be so sad for him. Mater has been in his foster home for 8 months and is still awaiting the perfect adopter that will fall in love with him. Mater is 100% potty trained, crate trained (although he's respectful in the home and would not need a crate), knows basic commands and has developed into his mature personality! Mater is a quiet guy in the home and rarely barks. Mater is usually curled up on the couch or his bed with his humans or his favorite plastic bone to chew on. He will allow food, toys, treats and bones to be taken away from him with no fuss at all! However, an adopter should continue to practice easy, positive methods for removing items from Mater such as "trading" and "leave it". Mater truly ADORES his humans and always wants to be by their side as the loyal dog he is. His tail goes wild whenever he is loved on and he loves every second of it (he even loves having his ears cleaned!). Mater can coexist with other dogs in a home, however Mater can get a bit annoyed when dogs jump on the couch next to him or nip his ankles and neck to antagonize him. When Mater plays with dogs his size, the play is rough and rowdy, but typically quick paced and short and both dogs settle. Mater does not like to share with other dogs. Mater should be always be supervised by his humans when free-roaming the home or fenced yard with other dogs in the home. Mater will make a great companion to most adopters with dog experience. Mater will need a human that will continue working on Mater's dog reactivity to other dogs while on leash using positive methods. Mater is working on being social with and greeting other dogs while on leash. Mater was never socialized as a younger dog which resulted in Mater being very confused and frustrated when seeing other dogs. Mater may never be a dog park dog, but can definitely make dog friends in the right situations and with human guidance. He is super smart and just needs the proper instruction! Mater would do best in a home without cats. He is in a foster home in NJ. He’s a really special boy that deserves a special family. He is neutered and up to date on all of his shots. He has the best underbite ever that gives him so much personality!! Adoption Application http://www.thelastresortrescue.com/adoptionapplication.htm

We’re estimating Joker’s age, the shelter believed him to be 2 years old but we believe he’s a tad older than 2. Joker has had such a horrible life, until now. Joker witnessed a horrible event that rendered his family unconscious and unable to care for him. After a series of events in which Joker was moved around multiple times he found himself in a kill shelter in NC. ((All details will be disclosed to an adopting party.)) The Last Resort had been watching all this unfold and tried to rescue Joker the first time he was in the shelter, well this time we were able to get him to safety and into a foster home who understands the breed and have identified his needs. And he’s nothing like what we’ve been told. We’ve seen nothing but gratitude from this boy. No aggression. Nothing but loyalty! Joker would do best in a home where he can attach himself to a sole owner, particularly a woman. Here’s what his foster momma says: Joker here, can I just say I'm loving it at my foster home?! I am not too fond of the dogs here and would really like a home where I can have all the attention. I love people as long as you give me time to introduce myself to you slowly, I'm a huge cuddle bug, & I enjoy my evening walks. I'm housebroken & my foster mom is working on crate training me, it's going well now! Things didn't work out how I would have wanted in my past, but all that matters now is I'm safe & looking for my new happily ever after! I really need a home with no small children & absolutely no cats at all! I also need a secured fenced in backyard & would not do well in an apartment! Please apply to meet the new love of your lives today (ME)!! Adoption Application http://www.thelastresortrescue.com/adoptionapplication.htm

WE CANNOT RESPOND TO GENERAL INQUIRES ABOUT A DOG WITHOUT AN APPLICATION ON FILE. Nate was born in approx March of 2015. He is in desperate need of a a new foster home ASAP. We rescued him when he was 10 weeks old from Craigslist. Nate hasn't seemed to find the right people as he has been in and out of 4 homes already. Here is the latest update from his foster dad who needs him out by the end of this week as he is moving. Personality Nate is a very affectionate dog. He loves attention and being with small groups of people. He has energy to spare, but can crash pretty hard when being active all day. He is very agile and likes to jump to greet people, so be wary of his nails​. He no longer jumps on the person he's greeting but may do so if not regularly trained. He is a pretty sound sleeper, even when with company, but will make sure to wake up immediately if you try and leave him alone. Tends yelp if left by himself or if he is feeling lonely/neglected. Will whine usually if needing to go potty. He loves blankets and will attempt to play tug o war with you if it is dangled in front of him or snuggle underneath it. Listens well the closer you are with him. He is very behaved without his leash outside and does not seem tempted to jump 4 foot fences. Loves belly pats and being smothered with love from a whole group of people. Be careful with paper, cardboard and stuffed items, because he will attempt to make that item a chew toy immediately. Likes to hide his twisty bone in the silliest ways. Health and body No signs of discomfort. May have a bit of anxiety from being with different people and not being able to settle into one place for very long. Eats regularly and drinks a great amount of water. Tends to shed quite a lot, but smells really pleasant. He is very strong and active. Very slim and lanky, so he may slip out of his collar if pulled at the right angle. He’s a very active dreamer and seems to have pleasant nights. pee looks normal colored and stool tends to be soft mostly. Goes to the bathroom about 3­4 times a day if fed 2 cups of kibble and bowl of water a day. about 1­2 times for #2 and 2­4 times for #1.Will sometimes do them separately, so spend a bit more time outside for him to finish. Final Thoughts Nate is a great, clever and lovable dog. He has a large amount of energy, so have fun teaching him fun tricks. Enjoy being slobbered on and given many kisses. He has so much to offer so please take take care of him! We are awaiting new pictures but the main picture is from today 8/25/16 Below are the older postings from the time we rescued him: Meet Nate, a 10 week old blue heeler/collie mix. He came to us from South Jersey where we know he would of ended up in the wrong hands so we took him and his brother into our rescue. We have learned that Nate loves affection and even does this little whimper when being rubbed. He loves to play outside with his brother and other dogs. Loves to run around with the kids but does tend to jump up often. He would be great in a family that is looking for a playmate as well as a cuddler.. If you think your family is just what Nate needs fill out the application today! Update from foster mom 07/15/15 Hey there! My name is Nate and I am almost 6 months old. I am told I am great on a leash when you walk me because I never pull. Also I make my foster family proud with potty training, I bark when I have to go so there are no accidents in the house. One thing about me is I'm very affectionate and LOVE attention. Yes, I do bark when I’m looking for attention but I’m still young they say and learning. Everyone loves that I know quite a few tricks. I can sit, lay down and wait while you get my food ready and not eat it until you say ok. I’m looking for a playful home, yet also one that loves to give me attention and cuddles me. I enjoy playing with dogs and kids of all ages and sizes but haven't met a cat yet. Also, my foster family has a member that is allergic to me so we are trying to get me a new home as soon as possible! The only negative I have is that I bark a lot and it's a very piercing bark. I do this when I need to go potty so I say that's not a bad thing! I also bark when I want attention and my foster mom cannot always give it to me at that exact time so I bark for a little bit and then will stop. I really don't think I will be a big barker if I have the attention I crave. My foster family does what they can but I would really like an active family who is home a lot. I am a very sweet dog that just loves attention! Will you bring me into your family? Update from foster family 01/25/16 Personality Nate is a very affectionate dog.

We really don't know, just a best guess! Anyway, they were rescued from living under an abandoned house in GA after their "owner" moved away and left them and their momma, Lucy there! They were born approximately April 11th, 2015, They are very sweet and good with other dogs! They and their momma will be arriving to NJ on 6/14/15. Update from foster mom 06/17/15 Sweet times 3! Momma Lucy has a very sweet disposition, it’s like she has been with us for years! She easily warmed up to us. Lex – the smaller of the 2 pups, is a ball of fire, he feels he needs to defend himself from his stocky brother Luther. Both are absolutely adorable! Anyone who adopts any of the 3 will be extremely lucky! We have fostered 3 other dogs in the past & I must admit these 3 by far are the best!!!! Update from foster mom 06/30/15 "LUTHER" This cutie is ready for his new come! Another great name would be MJ (Michael Jackson) because his paws look like Michael's gloves without the glitz. He loves to play outside, yet cuddles on the couch too! He was a little skiddish when he arrived to his foster home, but is coming around. Give this Little Guy the chance to grow up in a loving home Update from foster mom 10/21/15 LUTHER – this 6 ½ month old pup is looking for a new foster or forever home. He is quite the cutie. Fully housebroken, neutered and crate trained. He loves to play, cuddle & give kisses. He needs a little more training with cats that is why he needs a new foster….the weather is getting cold and it’s time for the foster’s cats to come in for the Winter months. He gets along terrifically with other dogs and loves to go for walks. Weighing about 25 pounds he is not a big dog. He is a mix (Mother was a Blue Heeler/Aust. Cattle Dog, father unknown) although he looks like he could be part Labrador. Open your arms to this absolutely loving pup! Luther is now a year old as of 4/21/16. Update from foster mom Luther is 1 yr old Australian Cattle Dog mix. He is truly a great buddy. He loves cuddling. He is crate trained as well as housebroken. He is ok with cats and small dogs but not very fond of larger dogs. Adoption Application http://www.thelastresortrescue.com/adoptionapplication.htm

WE CANNOT RESPOND TO GENERAL INQUIRES ABOUT A DOG WITHOUT AN APPLICATION ON FILE. Update from foster mom 3/25/14 Buddy has now been with us for 3 months and is still looking for his forever home. He is a 9 year old Shih Tzu/Maltese mix, and is about 17 lbs. He's being tested for allergies right now, We are currently waiting on his test results. He's had a rough life. I found him wandering a local highway in the freezing rain, filthy dirty, shivering, and crying. He was flea infested, had hardly any hair on his bottom half. He was suffering from flea bite allergy and had scabs, and open sores. He was extremely itchy and would cry because it hurt so much. He was hesitant at first but it took very little coaxing before he came to me. I wrapped him in a blanket and as soon as we were in my car he kissed my face. He sat on my lap all the way home. This poor guy has 3 herniated disks, 3 BB gun pellets (he was shot), a tail that was traumatized somehow, some weakness in his hind legs (caused by the disks), a bluish haze over his eyes which the vet says is comparable to humans needing reading glasses, and plenty of bumps and lumps (which the vet believes is of no concern.) He needs a loving home where someone is willing to give him the life he deserves. He's super sweet, but like his nickname, can be a grumpy old man. He's got the funniest personality! He makes all sorts of funny sounds when he's playing, and his nose works for sure! We call it his super sniffer! He's a great cuddler, loves walks, toys, and treats. He does well during bath time, and he's well behaved in the car. He does well at the vet, and the groomer too. He's excellent in the house, no accidents. Also, he doesn't need a crate, he's very good! He doesn't get into anything or chew stuff up. He sleeps with us too! (Watch out, he snores!) He's completely spoiled. We love him and know that whomever adopts this little guy will love him too! He's great with woman, a bit slow to warm up to men, but he does come around. Kids are ok as long as there is no rough housing. It seems to make him nervous. He's not a fan of lots of action (like running) he's a quiet peaceful kinda guy. Buddy and Maya (my dog) get along ok. They don't play together very often, mostly they just co-exist. Sometimes they lay in my bed together, or next to each other on the floor. He doesn't like when she sniffs at him, mostly because of his tender tail. He has attached himself to me pretty good. If anyone playfully hits me, or anything like that, he will bark and growl. He also growls at Maya if he is laying in my lap and she comes over to visit, but, if she's by me before him it's not a problem. I know that's a lot to consider when thinking about adopting a dog, but honestly, he has given me more then I could ever give him. He's just a joy to have. Please think about how a senior dog might fit into your life, and if you are interested, please fill out an adoption application at http://thelastresortrescue.com/ He's truly worth it. Hi, my name is Buddy. They tell me I'm a Shih Tzu, possibly mixed with Maltese. I love to lay on my foster moms lap, snuggle on my comfy bed, and go for walks! From what I heard, I do pretty well on a leash. Also, I'm fully house trained. I've been with my foster family for 3 days and haven't had one accident. I'm a very good boy! I'm not too interested in toys, but boy do I love my treats! I also like car rides, and kisses! And although I don't fidget too much in the tub, bath time is not my favorite. My foster mom says that I'm going to make a special family very happy. Will it be you? Keep watching, she also says she'll be sending updates on my progress!

WE CANNOT RESPOND TO GENERAL INQUIRES ABOUT A DOG WITHOUT AN APPLICATION ON FILE. Update from foster mom 2/7/14 Meet Kamali better known as Molly. She is a special girl born on 8/14/10 looking for her forever home. She bonds very well with one person female perferred and gets a bit scared when quick movements come her way. So she is looking for a quiet home with a loving person who she will adore to lay next to her. She is crate trained and housebroken and enjoys playing with her feline family. She has also done well with other dogs in the home. So if your looking to open your heart to a little girl who will make you her world you should adopt Molly. Kamali AKA Molly was sadly returned to us when her owner no longer could keep her because of a change in her living arrangements. She was adopted at just 12 weeks of age. She was born 8/14/10. She is very shy and timid. But has only been with me for a couple of days. I am hoping she will settle down once she learns she can trust us. She is doing great with my kids even the youngest who is only 6. She is crate trained and doing well with house breaking. She gets along well with other small dogs. I have two other Chihuahua's and a Pom. She loves to go out for walks and run in the back yard. She has lots of energy and would be a great addition to an active family. She may be little but she is mighty:) Adoption Application http://www.thelastresortrescue.com/adoptionapplication.htm

WE CANNOT RESPOND TO GENERAL INQUIRES ABOUT A DOG WITHOUT AN APPLICATION ON FILE. Introducing Sterling! Sterling is a long-term foster who was rescued from Cumberland County Animal Control in Fayetteville, NC. He was extremely unsocialized, emaciated, & loaded with pretty much every parasite known to mankind. He was covered in fleas & ticks as well. We found out he also was heartworm positive. He has had a rough road but now is doing wonderful! He has gone through treatment for the Heartworms. Sterling is 1 1/2 years old, neutered, UTD on all vaccines, & is currently on flea, tick & Heartworm prevention. Sterling needs a home with either one very submissive laid-back female dog, or with no dogs at all. He does not do well with cats & due to his background, we would feel most comfortable placing him with older children who know how to interact with dogs. He is a very goofy, loving boy, he has come so far since coming into his foster’s home! He is housebroken and crate trained as well! We are hoping to find his forever family in the Fayetteville, NC area Adoption Application http://www.thelastresortrescue.com/adoptionapplication.htm
