    Archie

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: German Shepherd Dog
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog (medium coat). Archie was rescued (then called Sarge) from a kill shelter after it was made clear that he had no rescue interest and was going to be PTS any day. He was in the shelter for approximately 3-4 weeks due to his owner passing away. He was originally re-homed to family friends and was given away after 1 week. He is a very sweet, intelligent, and funny animal and loves everyone he meets. His quirks and looks are infinitely charming. An ideal family would have a fenced backyard and the financial accommodations for a dog behaviorist and high quality dog food, along with someone who isn't gone for more than 5-6 hours during the day. This dog requires lots of mental or physical stimulation as well as an active lifestyle to be happy. His intelligence and energy need to be channeled or he will create his own outlet for them. He can be very focused on a task but can be distracted with a little bit of effort. He likes some order and a fairly regular routine. He is no coward, but takes a moment to assess new people and places before rushing headlong in. A little bit of caution is a good thing! He is very affectionate and doesn't hesitate to show it with cuddles and licks. He likes to be close to you as much as possible.

    Breed: German Shepherd Dog
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog (medium coat). My owner, Wes, recently divorced and cannot take care of me anymore. I'm staying with his parents temporarily, but they unfortunately are not able to keep me in the long term either. I was born in Jan. 2013. I love being close, affectionate, and curling up and cuddling with my family. Wes' mom calls me a "velcro dog", I think it's because I follow her around the house all the time. I love learning as long as treats are involved, and I can perform simple commands easily. My favorite is a tie between "roll over" and "reach for the sky!" I also love walks more than anything in the world, and I also like to play fetch with a frisbee or a ball. I've always received a good deal of attention and exercise, and have never had any health problems more severe than an ear infection! Wes has my vaccination records, which are current, although a few will be needed to be renewed in September this year. I know my family loves me and will miss me terribly, and their main concern is that my new home be a kind and loving one, with a person or family that understands animals. As sad as I am to be leaving them, I can't wait to meet my potential new family! Oh, and here's a link to my facebook page that my owner Wes set up for me. I can't type, due to having paws instead of hands and not being able to read or write: https://m.facebook.com/bunk.kaplan.3 He likes some activity such as a walk around the block or a game of fetch, but equally loves a nice relaxing nap. He won't get anxious if you don't exercise him regularly. He can be very focused on a task but can be distracted with a little bit of effort. He likes some order and a fairly regular routine. It can take a long time for him to warm up and accept anything new. A kind, understanding and patient approach is the best way to introduce him to new people or new places. He is very affectionate and doesn't hesitate to show it with cuddles and licks. He likes to be close to you as much as possible.

    Levi

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: German Shepherd Dog
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog. I adopted Levi from a good friend who raised him poorly, thinking I could do better. He improved greatly with training, but between finances, his lack of training at an early age, and what could simply be his personality, I gave up on trying to fix his behavior a long time ago. Now the news of heartworms is way more than I can handle and afford, and I would like the option of re-homing him to give him a chance at a great life instead of putting him down. Positives: Levi loves people, he's very affectionate, gives kisses indefinitely, and will do anything for food. He's crate trained, has a lot of gameness, and knows several commands. Obedient. Very verbal. Very smart and emotive. Learns and loves routine. He can tell whether we're going to play fetch or whether I'm leaving based on what clothes I'm wearing. Overly sweet dog who never had a fair shot at a good life. Negatives: Levi becomes very difficult to command when he gets excited, he is extremely excitable. Mild crate and food aggression. Separation anxiety. Aggressive for attention. Barks through fences or at noises with little provocation, whines and yelps for attention. Very verbal about when he doesn't like something. Vets seem to all think he is a shepherd mix, I think he may have some sort of terrier in him. He has a few types of barks and his and tri-color coat make me wonder if there isn't some beagle in him, as well, but those ears never droop. He currently lives with two other dogs about his size. Behavior: Levi's time to shine is during fetch or athletic activity. He loves chasing his ball, which I throw with a chuck-it. He was once hit by a pickup truck hauling a boat. Ever the athlete, despite being shaken up and a little bloody, he got his ball and signaled that he wanted to go play fetch. I've taught him several commands, like "sit" "lay down" "put your head down (roll over)" "stay" "stop" "ok/go (for food or ball)" "wait (for food or ball)" "drop it (ball, sometimes even food)" and "crate". Levi likes to police, he tries to make the other dogs obey the rules, like keeping them from jumping on me or visitors, but only to break those rules himself, given the opportunity. He growls when others go near his food, but has never barked or bitten for food. He will get very protective of bones, however, so I never give him any treats he can't finish in a few bites. He Growls in defiance when told to go to his crate, but still obeys. Communicates with growls and teeth on hands, but doesn't bite. Levi is at his best when he is doing things with/for a person, regardless of what that is. He has a thing for eating paper and napkins. Levis shortcomings fall into what someone (like myself) who prefers a calmer companion would describe as, "too much dog". He is aggressively affectionate and verbal, to the point that he growls for attention. He runs everywhere he goes and is incapable of walking at a slow pace without first being exhausted. Left to his own devices, he gets antsy. He will occasionally grab paper or napkins off high places.He barks at noises with little provocation. He seems to think he's a guard dog. He barks through fences at people, even ones he knows. Once he recognizes them, he starts to yelp for attention. When I need a break from him, I tell him to go to his crate, at which point he growls in defiance, but still complies. He doesn't try to escape his crate, but he will paw at it to try to see if it's locked correctly. If I leave at a time of day he isn't accustomed to, he will howl, yell, bark, and cry until he thinks I'm gone, then settle down. I imagine Levi would have made a great hunting companion. Levi's current situation: Levi had a cut that needed stitches. I couldn't figure out how he got cut, but I could see his muscle was exposed. He tested weak positive for heartworms before the vet put him under for surgery. This was a big wake-up call for me. Between finances and my incompatibility with Levi, I've now realized how in over my head I am with him. He is currently in an e-collar with stitches, which will be removed 6/29/17. He needs a teeth cleaning, and I've just started slow-kill heartworm treatment. What/Who Levi needs: The slow kill option for heartworms requires that I keep him calm at all times. This is next to impossible. Levi settles down at 90% and is always ready to go to 110%. The only time he isn't energized is when he's asleep. The vet I most recently took him to described him as very intense and likened his heartbeat to a machine gun. Levi needs a ranch or place with a yard, continuous stimulus, and an experienced or very patient owner that is used to having a dog for a full time job. At the very least, Levi needs someone who loves him for his energetic traits rather than annoyed or frustrated by them. I can transport short-moderate distances. He's not great with car rides. Attached are his most recent shots, pictures, and invoice detailing his stitches and positive heartworm test/treatment This dog requires lots of mental or physical stimulation as well as an active lifestyle to be happy. His intelligence and energy need to be channeled or he will create his own outlet for them. Variety is the spice to life and in this dog's opinion there are too many wonderful things in the world to stay focused too long on just one, unless it is REALLY interesting. He is no coward, but takes a moment to assess new people and places before rushing headlong in. A little bit of caution is a good thing! He is very affectionate and doesn't hesitate to show it with cuddles and licks. He likes to be close to you as much as possible.

    Miley

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: German Shepherd Dog
    Sex: Female Female
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog. Miley is an 8 year old (DOB 02/26/2009), spayed female, heartworm negative, GSD. She weighs approximately 80 pounds and is up to date on her vaccines, except DAPP which she is due for. She is great with kids but would probably do best with older children, ages 8 and up, as she forgets how big she is. She is crate and house trained and knows basic commands, sit, stay, lay, shake, roll over and is a left sided leash walker. She does not do well with cats or smaller dogs and is unknown with dogs her own size. She will let you brush her coat, trim her nails, brush her teeth and bathe her with ease. She also loves opera music and will sing (howl) right along with it. She suffers from chronic ear infections primarily in her right ear that are very uncomfortable to her and make her ears very sensitive. More recently she has developed hot spots on her lower back and tail. Our family has had her for about a year now as we took her in from a friend that was in the military and being shipped overseas. She has been a great member of our family, protective of our children, playful with all of us. Unfortunately with the birth of our latest son being 2 months early he has severe, chronic lung disease which is exacerbated by Miley's dander and fur. Even with proper grooming, constant sweeping and vacuuming it still affects our son. Because of this and some other unforseen family issues we are looking to rehome Miley. We will not rush to rehome her as we want to make sure she goes to a fitting family that will have time for her, love her and be her true furever home. She will be rehomed with her cage (XL Kong Cage), bed, food and bowls, toys, treats and anything else we have for her.
