Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog. Hi, I’m Zena. I’m a very sweet girl; all the volunteers at the shelter will vouch for that. I do have to get to know you a little because I’m a bit on the shy side, but it doesn’t take long for me to make friends. Also, I suffer from separation anxiety. This means that when you’re home with me I’m a great companion, sweet and well-behaved. However, if you leave me I must be left outside of the house in a fenced yard. It’s okay, I like being outside as long as I have some shelter from the extreme weather - a doghouse in the winter and shade in the summer. I know the right person will come my way and then it will be just like in the movies, happily ever after. Are you my way to happily ever after?

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.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Hi, I’m Rocco. I was rescued from a pool where I had been treading water for over 3 hours. It’s believed someone threw me into the pool; I suppose hoping they’d seen the last of me. But, I wasn’t going down that easy and I survived. Who would do such a thing, you ask? Good question but I don’t dwell on it. I’m looking towards the future. I’m going to need an experienced owner because I have special needs. I love people and I’m great with them. However, I don’t like dogs so I need a home with no other pets of any kind and no small children. Does that sound like your home? If so, I’m here waiting for you!

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever. Hi, I’m Lincoln. I’m a fun-loving dog you’ve just got to meet! I’m happy, enjoy belly rubs, and would love to be a part of your family. I’ve got lots of energy and would make a great running partner. I’m also very smart. I was a big time jumper until I realized I don’t get attention like that so I learned to just sit quietly, and it worked. I get all kinds of love when I do that. So, what would you like to teach me after our run!! Lincoln will require daily eye drops due to being diagnosed with glaucoma but his vet care and medication associated with his special need will be free at Angel’s Vet.

      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Mixed (medium coat). Hi, my name is Willie. I am a happy dog that loves affection. I get along well with other dogs, I know the command “sit” and I’m house-trained, all good traits. However, there is something you need to know about me, I get very possessive of my owner. So, I have very specific adoption requirements. I would do best in a home with a single person who can isolate me when they have company. If it’s you and me, we’ll do great! I’m a good dog I just have a need to ensure you are safe. I know there is a home where I belong; is it yours?

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi, my name is Kimmie. I’ll bet you can see in my picture that I’m a sweet girl at heart. I started out in a prison training program. It was great because I was learning all kinds of things to make me an even better friend. However, they discovered that I have seizures. Because of this, they could not keep me in the program. That’s how I ended up at M’Shoogys. However, this isn’t the best place for me either. What I really need is a good home with good people who understand I have special needs and don’t mind giving me medicine to control my seizures. When I’m confused I also tend to want to bite so I can’t go to a home with small children as they don’t know about giving me my space. If you have a big heart full of love and understanding and want to take care of a dog that really needs it; I’m the one for you! Those adopting Kimmie could get her medication at Angel’s Vet at our cost.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Hi, my name is Nana; it rhymes with Hannah. If you’re guessing by my picture that I’m a playful girl that likes to have fun, you’re right on the money. I was under the weather and brought to Angel’s Vet for treatment but my family never returned to get me. It must be because they were short on money. It couldn’t be because they didn’t want me because I’m a good girl. Okay, I have one confession – I don’t like small pets and I like to climb chain link fences. So, I need a home with no other small pets and with a tall privacy fence so I don’t get the urge to climb the fence.
