Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog. Adoption Fee: 300.00. ZOLTAN is a stunning sable German Shepherd who's ready to find his forever family! He's a beautiful, powerful, and sometimes stubborn male working lines German Shepherd, and is considered HIGH energy. He needs extensive daily exercise playing ball - his favorite activity of all time. Zoltan has been in and out of several homes during his lifetime, and is hoping to find THE one who can match him in wit and energy, so he can finally have a place of his own to call home. Temperament Zoltan LOVES being with his family and will be wherever his people are; he's incredibly loyal and gets attached pretty quickly. He loves to meet people, and when at home, takes cues from his humans to determine if visitors are acceptable. Like a true German Shepherd, he's stubborn, and protective of his family, and he will react to any perceived threat (such as strangers yelling around family, etc). He adores ear rubs, belly rubs, and warming up his human's feet (by way of laying on them!) at the end of the day. He's also quite a talker and likes to tell his humans about things he experiences throughout his day -- reflections of objects, a bag blowing by, or even when he's enjoying some petting or a good belly rub. Zoltan is incredibly loving and bonds closely to his humans. He's quite a big lovebug, and will try sneaking up into his human's lap if allowed. Provided he gets a proper amount of exercise daily, he settles nicely and loves to sleep on his back with all 4 feet in the air while you tend to work, projects or are just relaxing. He wants to please his humans, and responds well to strong leadership and training that's consistent. He's currently in an experienced foster home with a strong leader and is doing well. Other Animals Zoltan can do well with other respectful dogs if introductions are done properly and slowly. He doesn't care for other dogs getting in his face or trying to take his ball. He has done very well with a number of other foster dogs who have come and gone through his foster homes (always with proper supervision, and gradual introductions). He's not really a player with other dogs, so will do best with another dog who respects his space, and does not challenge him. A submissive and mellow dog would be a nice match, or he would be fine as an only dog. Children No children under 15 years old; no exceptions. Medical No known medical issues. Additional Information: Adoption Requirements Experienced German Shepherd Owner/Leader 6' Privacy Fence No children under 15 years old No small dogs or cats Commitment of daily exercise, no matter the weather or busy schedules Some people might consider Zoltan as an "old" man, but even at 8 years old, he has a lot of energy and lots of life yet to live. A solid committment of energetic walks and daily ball play are the key for keeping this hunk physically and mentally balanced! One lucky family who can commit to that and strong and consistent leadership will have a true GEM of a GSD! ZOLTAN's ADOPTION FEE: $300 This fee covers only part of what we spend to vet, board and rehab the dogs we save. On average we spend over $450 on each dog. We made a decision to keep our adoption fee at the 2005 level even though vet prices have doubled and tripled since then. We are constantly fundraising to cover the deficit. At minimum, your adoption fee includes the dog's spay/neuter, heartworm test, heartworm treatment if needed, rabies shot, distemper/parvo shot, bordatella shot, deworming, monthly heartworm and flea preventives, and microchip. In many cases it also includes surgery and various types of vet treatment for standard issues such as hot spots, ear infections and so on. INTERESTED IN ADOPTING ZOLTAN?

They're big and scare lots of people. They "mouth" and are usually strong-willed and stubborn. You have to have references and a home visit.

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.

    • Mutt Dog For Adoption in Kansas City, MO, USA

      Rocco

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed. Adoption Fee: 250.00. ROCCO is an adorable, medium sized 2 1/2 year old boy who's had a rough beginning to his life so far. His trouble started off when he was hit by a car as a stray in 2015, and suffered injuries to one of his back legs. After recovering from surgery, Rocco was adopted out for a year, and left outside with little care, attention or handling, before being surrendered to another shelter during a landlord dispute. Now he's with MOGS, and not a minute too soon! He's a super-sweet boy with some rough edges, so he's currently on hold for adoption while he is working on learning the ropes of becoming a good doggie citizen. TEMPERAMENT Rocco is continuing to make positive progress in his foster home, and has learned to “sit,” “wait,” go “outside,” come “inside,” “go to bed,” “free,” “come,” and “eat.” He is also working on learning both verbal and hand signal commands for “down,” “quiet,” and “place.” Rocco adores his people, and sometimes thinks he’s a lap dog when he wants cuddles and attention. He loves to go for walks and car rides, and is working on not demonstrating his gymnastic abilities on a leash. He loves to race around in his backyard, but settles down well once inside. He is working on crate-training, but sometimes thinks he is a crate Houdini, especially if he wants to get to his “person.” If you make a good impression on him, he might even let you skritch his new favorite itchy spot over his back hips! OTHER ANIMALS Rocco has had to work hard at it, but has been able to get along with other dogs his size or bigger, for short periods of supervised time. Due to his history of neglect, he sometimes works overly hard to lay claim to food, toys, beds, etc., as only his. He does not get along with cats. Even though he is making progress with other GSD buddies in his current foster home, Rocco would prefer to be an only pet, so he can have his fur-ever family’s undivided attention. CHILDREN Rocco would prefer to be around adults, and should not be adopted into a home with children under 16 years old. MEDICAL Rocco currently takes medication and supplements to help ease pain and stiffness in his previously injured back legand hip, and will need to continue this regimen following adoption. Rocco will need a strong leader that will realize when he begins to claim toys, beds, people etc., and gently but firmly correct his behaviors. He has been working really hard in his foster home, and can’t wait to meet his new forever family! Rocco's ADOPTION FEE: $250 This fee covers only part of what we spend to vet, board and rehab the dogs we save. On average we spend over $450 on each dog. We made a decision to keep our adoption fee at the 2005 level even though vet prices have doubled and tripled since then. We are constantly fundraising to cover the deficit.

    • Corbin - Shepherd Dog For Adoption

      Mutt Dog For Adoption in Kansas City, MO, USA

      Corbin

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd. Adoption Fee: 300.00. CORBIN is a gorgeous all-black German Shepherd who loves his people and family, and gets along with other large dogs. He's fun-loving and has lots of energy, yet is great in the house and settles nicely. People: Corbin really seems to just enjoy people. He's got a great GSD bark so that strangers coming to the door will know he's there, but once they come inside he just wants attention. He also loves his carers, whether it's his foster family or the staff who so lovingly took care of him while he spent several months in boarding waiting for a foster family. He was actually a favorite of the staff at boarding because he's such an upbeat kind of guy. Kids: Corbin was raised in a family with children and while we haven't seen him around small kids ourselves we believe he is good with them. We have seen him around older children (young teens and up) and he is very good. Other Animals: Corbin gets along with other large dogs and particpated in play groups while in boarding for several months. He now lives with another GSD and second large dog in his foster home and does fine. But he can not be around small animals, including small dogs and cats. He has a high prey drive and requires strong leadership on walks or when around small animals. In fact, his high prey drive is the reason his life-long family abandoned him after raising him from a puppy and keeping him 6 years. We don't know the details, but apparently a neighbor's small dog was in Corbin's 'territory' and he shook the dog so hard that it sadly died. Although he'd been fine for 6 years, the family chose to abandon him to a public shelter, where he was at very high risk, istead of making sure their fence was secure and he couldn't get loose. Yet Corbin does beautifully in his foster home with a strong leader, where he lives with two other large dogs and goes on walks. General: He's house-trained and crate-trained, and has excellent house manners. Corbin can be a little bit mischeivous too - he loves to steal the socks of the teenager in his foster home. Like we said, he's an upbeat and fun guy ;-) Fencing: He must have a securely fenced yard with a 6 ft fence in good repair. OVERALL: Corbin is a gorgeous boy who's loving, affectionate, upbeat and fun. He's crate trained and house trained, and has good house manners. His only issue is his high prey drive, which means two things: 1) he can not be around small animals, and 2) he requires a strong leader when on walks. He would do well as an only pet or living with other sociable large dogs. If you're looking for a gorgeous, out-of-the-puppy-stage buddy with a great personality, and are a strong leader with no other small pets, CORBIN may be the best friend you're looking for! CORBIN'S ADOPTION FEE: $300 This fee covers only part of what we spend to vet, board and rehab the dogs we save. On average we spend over $450 on each dog.

      rescue
      Breed: German Shepherd Dog
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog. Adoption Fee: 300.00. *** Please Note: Caesar is not currently available for adoption. We're still dealing with a number of medical issues. Any adoption applications submitted for Caesar will be put on hold until we determine he's ready for adoption. It could easily take 4-6 months for his health to reach that point. Thanks for your understanding! *** CAESAR is a 7-year old German Shepherd who was left at a city shelter one week before Christmas, 2016. The owner first claimed Caesar was just a "stray", then said he owned the dog but Caesar had been "missing" for a month, and finally admitted none of that was true. The truth was simple: Caesar was a chained backyard dog who was systematically starved and had nearly frozen to death in subzero weather. He was comatose, literally frozen from sub-zero temperatures, couldn't walk and had to be carried by a stretcher, had a badly injured back leg, a screamingly-painful back end (he literally screamed at touch), a sunken eye, no teeth, bad gums, almost no fur, and was heartworm positive. He was also a living skeleton, at least 30-40 lbs underweight. How he survived the vicious winter weather and temperatures of the prior weekend was a mystery to all of us. After several months and hundreds of hours of rehab, Casar has regained the use of his back legs, is back to a normal weight, and is loving life in a wonderful foster home that very happily spoils him every minute of every day. TEMPERAMENT Caesar is a very loving, sweet-tempered boy, who truly loves to be velcroed to his people - or watching your every move when he is not. He is working on becoming housebroken, but due to medical issues, isn't really being pushed to learn many other commands. Recently, however, he really surprised his foster parents when he sat for the first time (it hurts his back, so he hasn't done it before), and even rolled partway over for belly scratches recently! Caesar does have some mild food guarding behaviors leftover from a life of starvation, so is working diligentlly to resolve that issue. OTHER ANIMALS Caesar is currently living with another GSD buddy. He does not know how to play, but does enjoy quietly hanging out with his friend. He also loves cats. Another dog in his future adoption home is required for his continued well-being. CHILDREN Caesar has shown some mixed reactivity to younger children, so any adoptive home would require only children 16+ MEDICAL Caesar is currently undergoing chemotherapy for a diagnosis of cancer, and will not be free for adoption until this treatment is completed. He will require close medical follow-up for this, as well as several other medical issues, for the remainder of his life. These issues include the need for a special diet and supplements, and care and monitoring of his sunken eye, and compromised back hips and legs. Caesar's ideal forever home will be one that has a doggy buddy that he can hang out with, as well as owners who will continue to provide for his medical needs, and spoil him with the love, attention and comfort he has grown accustomed to. Will you be the one to find a place in this special boy's heart? Caesar's ADOPTION FEE: $300 This fee covers only part of what we spend to vet, board and rehab the dogs we save.

      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed. Adoption Fee: 250.00. SYDNEY is an adorable medium-sized GSD/Heeler mix girl who deserves the amazing forever home she's been dreaming of! She was picked up as a stray on the streets in Missouri, and is in a much better place now, while she waits to find her forever family. Temperament Sydney is a very timid girl who has shown to have a wonderful, gentle and playful soul once she begins to warm up and lets you see her true personality! She does get easily spooked by loud or sudden noises as well as sudden movements by people. She's not aggressive in any way, and would do best in a home with very patient owners who will promise to take her out and slowly socialize her on a regular basis. She needs to see the big world around her isn't so frightening, especially when she's with the ones she loves! Sydney walks great on a leash, and is learning basic commands in her foster home. She's house trained, and while she doesn't love the kennel, she actually does well when she has to be in one. Children Sydney startles and scares easily, so cannot match her with young kids. Respectful kids age 15 and older only. Other Animals Sydney wants to be around other dogs, but is not quite sure how to act towards them at times. She does show a little dominance at times, so will need an attentive owner who knows how to read doggie body language, and proper introductions to other dogs. Sydney was cat-tested, and simply ignored the cat, so we believe she'll be fine with cats and small dogs, with proper supervision. Medical No health concerns! SYDNEY's ADOPTION FEE: $250 This fee covers only part of what we spend to vet, board and rehab the dogs we save. On average we spend over $450 on each dog.

      Raven

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: German Shepherd Dog
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog. Adoption Fee: 300.00. RAVEN is a stunningly beautiful, 2 year-old, Sable coated GSD who was VERY badly abused by someone. She came to us from a shelter where she was abandoned, utterly terrified of human beings. She simply shut down when people came near, and had to be carried everywhere: to the vet clinic, to the car, to her foster home. TEMPERAMENT Overall, Raven is a very gentle but super-shy girl, who is working hard with her foster to learn that her world is now a safe place. As a result of an extensive trauma history, she still sometimes ducks her head when her foster approaches to pet her, but is slowly showing improvement. She has a tendency to be shy with new people or novel situations - her initial response is to hide under chairs or behind her person, but will warm up quickly and ask for a belly rub. Raven is super-smart, and super-loving, and she bonds very hard to her person(s). She is crate-trained, and frequently uses her crate for a "safe" place when anxious or confused. However, if she is left in a crate by herself, with no other dogs or her person around, she will sometimes grow anxious and break out. Raven is not destructive when allowed to roam, and can be left free in the home without causing any damage. She has learned to follow basic obedience commands from her foster, but does not necessarily translate those to other people yet. She is working to overcome a history of starvation, but still at times eats a small amount, takes a break, then eats again. ** Raven MUST HAVE A 6' PHYSICAL FENCE THAT IS ABSOLUTELY SECURE - Anxiety and startle responses cause her to be a flight risk and will for some time. She can also jump high, and has nearly cleared the top of a six-foot privacy fence that had some damaged boards. *** Any family for Raven will also NEED to be willing to keep her on an extended lead line, in a back yard, with ADULT supervision, for an extended period of time, until she is able to bond with, and trust her new people and surroundings. OTHER ANIMALS Raven is good with other dogs, and seems to feel calmer with doggy buddy's around. It's a requirement for any adoptive home to have another dog that is both confident and calm, and can help Raven continue to improve her confidence level. She cannot be in a home with cats. CHILDREN Due to the noise and chaos, Raven cannot be in a home with young children. Kids 12 and up only, no exceptions. MEDICAL Raven has no known medical issues. IDEAL FAMILY: A patient, loving family who will continue to guide her on her journey to trust and confidence. A family with another dog who will be her play buddy, best friend, and role model. A family who will be gentle and encouraging, and never lose patience with Raven as she works through the final stages of her fear and distrust. A family willing to help her fully blossom into the incredible dog she really is. If you want to help a terrified, abused German Shepherd heal and love her forever, RAVEN may just be the dog you're looking for! RAVEN's ADOPTION FEE: $300 This fee covers only part of what we spend to vet, board and rehab the dogs we save. On average we spend over $450 on each dog. We made a decision to keep our adoption fee at the 2005 level even though vet prices have doubled and tripled since then. We are constantly fundraising to cover the deficit. At minimum, your adoption fee includes the dog's spay/neuter, heartworm test, heartworm treatment if needed, rabies shot, distemper/parvo shot, bordatella shot, deworming, monthly heartworm and flea preventives, and microchip. In many cases it also includes surgery and various types of vet treatment for standard issues such as hot spots, ear infections and so on. INTERESTED IN ADOPTING RAVEN?

      Amelia

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: German Shepherd Dog
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog. Adoption Fee: 300.00. AMELIA is a solid black 4-year old girl who came into a local shelter as a stray. When she first came to us this beautiful girl was underweight, heartworm positive, and more than a little sick. With good nutrition, medical attention, and the help of our partners at the boarding facility (Main Street Pet Resort) -- who are caring for her while waits for a foster home -- Amelia has been treated for heartworm, gained weight, and is now beautifully healthy and strong and happy. TEMPERAMENT She's an energetic girl who loves to be outside. She loves to hang out with her people and takes treats softly from your hand. She is also one smart cookie -- she quickly learned the commands sit, back (to back away from the kennel gate), and heel, all while in boarding. It boggles the mind to think what she can and will learn in a home! She is highly trainable with strong leadership and consistency. Amelia still has some "mouthing" issues and is also a big-time chewer. She LOVES toys, but can sometimes be territorial about them. Chasing balls is one of her most favorite activities, and she needs continued work on learning to release them to her human when requested. Because she had a history of starvation, Amelia still tends to want to eat everything she sees and is working on slowing down at mealtimes with the use of a slow feeder. She also needs to be in a home where there is no possibility of small toys or objects being within her reach (to avoid swallowing them). Amelia would make an excellent running partner, a great overall buddy, is house-trained and crate-trained, and does well in the house generally. She's also great with people she meets. OTHER ANIMALS Amelia does okay with slow, supervised introductions to other dogs. She does have some barrier reactivity to other dogs, so this would need to be an ongoing training issue until safely integrated into her new home. She has done okay with cats when exposed to them at a groomer's, as well as at the vet clinic -- she does shows some curiosity, so any cat introductions would need to be supervised as well. Amelia would do okay in a home with another dog after slow introductions, but would also be okay as a single pet. CHILDREN Due to both her size and "mouthing" issues, Amelia needs to be in a home with NO children. MEDICAL Amelia has completed heartworm treatment and flew right through it. She has gained weight and is healthy and happy. She simply requires continued monthly heartworm preventative like any other dog. If you're looking for a beautiful girl who's just out of puppy-stage but still has high energy, and are a strong, consistent leader who's willing to finish up her training, AMELIA may be the dream dog you're looking for!! AMELIA'S ADOPTION FEE: $300 This fee covers only part of what we spend to vet, board and rehab the dogs we save. On average we spend over $450 on each dog. We made a decision to keep our adoption fee at the 2005 level even though vet prices have doubled and tripled since then. We are constantly fundraising to cover the deficit.

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog. Adoption Fee: 350.00. BOLT is a gorgeous, all-white, one year old male who was surrendered by his owner, and is now taking advantage of being with one of our highly-skilled fosters to round out some of his rough edges. TEMPERAMENT Though timid and shy at first, Bolt quickly bonded to his foster mom, and recognizing her strong leadership skills, began to wow us all with how fast he learned how to follow several basic commands. He is an extremely smart boy with a sweet personality, and loves to have something to do, and room to run. Bolt responds best to gentle, firm, positive leadership, and expert handling, so requires a highly experienced owner who is willing to provide him with a solid forever home where he can continue to work on building his confidence. OTHER ANIMALS Bolt is in a foster home with several other animals, and has done well with another large GSD with careful, supervised introductions. His interactions with smaller dogs are still a work-in-progress in this setting, although he has done well with them in prior placements. He has not been cat tested. CHILDREN Bolt requires a highly experienced adult handler, and no children under the age of 18. MEDICAL Bolt has no known chronic health issues, but because he is still growing, occasionally limps due to growing pains. His forever owner will need to continue to monitor for this. BOLT'S ADOPTION FEE: $350 This fee covers only part of what we spend to vet, board and rehab the dogs we save. On average we spend over $450 on each dog. We made a decision to keep our adoption fee at the 2005 level even though vet prices have doubled and tripled since then. We are constantly fundraising to cover the deficit.

      Gigi

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed. Adoption Fee: 200.00. GIGI is a beautiful girl with eyes that warm your heart! G, as she is affectionately called by her adoring fans, started her life as a Kansas City street dog. At six months of age she survived on the streets with her mother where she was eventually caught by animal control and came to MOGS. But that is G's past, and thanks to a committed and experienced foster home, she's barely recognizable from those early days. TEMPERAMENT Gigi is now secure with meeting strangers and looks to her "person" for guidance. For this reason Gigi needs a dog savvy owner who will have the leadership skills necessary to recognize when she may be unsure of her surroundings. Watching her race around and play with your other dogs will give you many hours of fun and laughs - her sheer joy in being free from worry and loving life is a delight to watch. Gigi is housetrained and crate trained, and even has good leash skills. She follows several verbal and hand signal commands, and loves to please her people. She's also very agile and can climb a 4' chain link fence easily. She's very curious about what's on the other side -- especially if it happens to be her person! Because of this, a 6' privacy fence is required. Gigi has shown several "alerter" tendencies, and will seek out her foster mom for help for the other dogs, and especially when the water and food bowls are empty! OTHER ANIMALS Gigi loves her big foster brother, who is a very large GSD, as well as her foster sisters, and needs to have a doggy buddy in her new home to wrestle and play with! A medium-to-large doggy friend with a similar energy level will be an ideal playmate! Gigi has been cat tested, and basically ignores them. CHILDREN Gigi would do best with children 12 or older who can be respectful of their canine family members, and not try to startle or force her to do things too quickly. MEDICAL No known medical issues. GiGi is looking for the perfect family to complete her rags to riches story! Could that be you? GIGI's ADOPTION FEE: $200 This fee covers only part of what we spend to vet, board and rehab the dogs we save. On average we spend over $450 on each dog. We made a decision to keep our adoption fee at the 2005 level even though vet prices have doubled and tripled since then. We are constantly fundraising to cover the deficit.

She does have some anxiety, especially in novel situations, and has a mild tendency towards being a velcro dog. She does know basic commands, and continues to work on them in her current foster home. OTHER ANIMALS Juno is good with both dogs and cats, although she sometimes has to be corrected for excessive curiosity towards other animals. She gets along well with the other dogs in her foster home, and has been to doggie daycare with no issues. Another dog in the home is required, as it helps ease her nervousness, and she needs a role model as well. CHILDREN Juno has lived with children as young as 7 years-old and does well.

This should be considered a life-long medical management issue, and she will need ongoing care after adoption into a forever home.
