Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog. Courtesy Post - Special Needs Have you ever seen two more beautiful boys? We are a very special package of love looking for our forever home. We are siblings and are a super sweet bonded pair that will need to be placed together. Be prepared to be showered with affection, as we love everyone we meet! Gentlemen we are, we get along with other dogs in general but Moe is not quite sure what to think of higher energy dogs. We are fully vetted which includes, being neutered and up to date on all of our vaccines and are heartworm negative as well. We have been diagnosed with dry eye disease. A few things to know about our condition: Our eyes can’t moisturize themselves properly so we need medication applied to our eyes daily. (We don’t mind it, it relieves our discomfort!) We do have limited vision and are sensitive to the light. A regular relationship with a canine eye specialist will be .needed so that we can continue to be awesome without discomfort.. We can’t wait to find a home that will welcome us with open arms, and we look forward to showering that devoted family with unwavering love and devotion.

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: German Shepherd Dog
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Hugo, MN
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog (medium coat). Duke is a senior male GSD. He is up to date on vaccinations, neutered and microchipped. He is a sweet older guy who is a bit wary of strangers, but warms up quickly. He currently lives with another dog, but is also cautious of new dogs, so proper introductions are necessary. We are unsure how he does with children or cats. Because of his age, Duke has a few medical issues that are well controlled and managed. He is looking for a new home through no fault of his own and would love a comfortable place to live out his senior years. His adoption fee is $200 plus tax
