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.

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Mixed. Nino is a young male GSD mix. He is about 6 months old. He was found as a stray in northern Minnesota with Nora. We do not know if they are littermates, so we will not allow them to be adopted to the same home. We do know that Nino is very timid and shy and that new things frighten him. He is in a foster home right now, learning how good life can be when you get to live indoors. He is learning new things every day is gaining confidence. He will continue to learn for a bit with his foster before he is ready to go to his forever home. We're sure he'll make a great addition to your family. His adoption fee is $400 plus tax

      Stella

      rescue
      Breed: German Shepherd Dog
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog. Stella is a beautiful 3 year old female GSD. She is up to date, microchipped and will be spayed prior to adoption. Although she has lived with other dogs in the past, she is very dog selective and would do best as an only dog. She barks when meeting strangers, but warms up quickly to women. She does ok with men, but it takes her a little bit longer to accept them. She seems to do ok with kids, but we think she should probably be around older kids. Stella will need a committed adopter to help her realize her potential. She needs to experience new situations since she has not had a lot of opportunities to get "out and about" and figure out what the world is all about. Her adoption fee is $350 plus tax

      Breed: German Shepherd Dog-Unknown Mix

      Age: Baby
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Belgian Shepherd Malinois / Mixed. Talia is the sister of Tanner, Tasco and Tazer. She also seems to have the most drive and is the "sassiest" of the puppies. She will need an experienced handler to help her overcome her time as a stray and her time in the shelter. We're learning more about her personality every day and will keep updating her profile. She is up to date on puppy shots and microchipped. She will either by neutered prior to adoption or an additional deposit will be required, which is refundable upon proof of alteration. Her adoption fee is $400 plus tax
