    Maltman

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: German Shepherd Dog
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: Alexandria, VA
    Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog (medium coat). Maltman is doing phenomenally well at his foster’s house. He is very housebroken, eats his food gently and show no signs of resource guarding - allows his foster near his food bowl and to pet him when he's eating. He took to the foster’s roommate right away. He is friendly with everyone he meets on the street. One night he was walking with his foster when they intersected a man with a hood and a big jacket when turning the corner. The man then leaned over to pet him and Maltman was happy and loose. He rarely ever barks and doesn't even blink an eye when the foster’s roommate comes in through the frontdoor unexpectedly after work at night. He gets the zoomies sometimes and play bows bouncing around the apartment, but otherwise, he does great with the apartment lifestyle. He wakes up around 7am for his morning walk (he is still on the shelter routine) and will let his foster know that its time to take him out. He is so sweet and attentive. He follows his foster around, but he is also independent and can entertain himself just fine. He loves attention, but isn't a needy velcro dog. He sleeps well on a big dog bed in the bedroom. He likes chewing on bones and will toss around his soft, squeeky toys but doesnt shred or de-stuff them very often. He is left loose in the house with zero issues or incidents during the work day. He walks well on leash and does not pull with his harness on. He does bark when he sees a dog, does not redirect on his leash. His foster is working on the command "Lets go!" as a way to keep him moving past other dogs. He is doing well with this and resolves quickly. He is quick to start reacting to another dog - pulling and barking, but he is fine when he actually approaches and interacts. He again showed tolerance to a dog who was energetic and jumping up. He is reactive but not aggressive. This behavior is easily corrected with continued exposure. The adoption contract requires training with one of TRD's approved trainers.

    Age: Adult
    Location: Lovingston, VA
    Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog (short coat). Humane Society/SPCA of Nelson County ALMOST HOME 29 Stagebridge Road, Lovingston, VA 22949 434 263-7722 Email: pets@nelsonspca.org IMPORTANT!!! PLEASE READ All animals are located at Almost Home at the above address with the following exceptions... (PSP) indicates they are located at Pets Supplies Plus, Charlottesville, VA; (FC=initials) indicates animal is living in Foster Care not at our shelter; Courtesy Postings - see bio for contact information as animals do not belong to Almost Home. GREAT DOG! PROBABLY BEST WITH OLDER CHILDREN!!! APRIL 12, 2017: THIS IS A COURTESY LISTING FOR SOUTHEAST GERMAN SHEPHERD RESCUE. GATSBY IS NOT AT OUR SHELTER. Hey there... name's Gatsby, and I'm pretty Great. The dog doctor thinks I'm around 6 years old. I have a really short, shiny coat, and I'll tell you a secret - there could be some Rottie in my lineage. I'm 66lbs now, and am putting on a little weight. Ideally, I should be around 70lbs. Learning the ropes of being an "inside dog". It's a little intimidating, but I'm getting the hang of it. I spent most of my life outside, and I have an old injury on my back leg from being on a stinkin' chain. It hurts me sometimes if I hit it wrong, or if someone tries to pick my leg up, but otherwise, I have no issues with it, and it doesn't slow me down. I've met some kids, but foster mom says it would probably be best if I wasn't with younger kids. They could bump my leg, and I'm pretty big, so we don't want any accidents. I really like people, and have a great time playing with the other dogs in my foster home. My foster sister and I run and wrestle for hours. It's great fun. I'd love to have a brother or sister in my new home that like to wrestle as much as I do. I have to admit, I can get a little cranky when I have something another dog wants. My foster mom says it's a slight tendency to "resource guarding"... I say it's just nice to have something that is mine for once. About that "inside dog" thing. I'm learning the ropes pretty quickly. I have a HUGE crate, and I know that is where I get to eat my meals (regular meals are FANTASTIC) and where I sleep during the night. I love it. I've met the cats in this house too, one of them came up and rubbed all over me. I was a little startled by that, but don't think much of them at this point. Did I say I like people? I really love to be around people, and I will yoddle to get your attention if you are going somewhere and not taking me. I'm pretty quiet most other times, but I get really excited when the man here gets in his truck to go somewhere. Going for rides is one of my FAVORITE things to do. I'm hanging out at a cool place in the mountains of Nelson County, Virginia. With a whole bunch of other dogs, a few cats and some chickens. If you are interested in meeting me, and perhaps becoming my forever person, apply now at www.southeastgermanshepherdrescue.com. SGSR's adoption process consists of a telephone interview, a call to your veterinarian and a home visit. If you have any questions about the adoption process please contact sgsrescue@gmail.com .

    River

    rescue
    Breed: German Shepherd Dog
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: Alexandria, VA
    Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog (medium coat). River is a 4.5 y o sable female who was used for breeding her entire life living outside in a pen where she never knew the finer things in life. However, despite this rough life, she is a sweet, affectionate, and playful looking to find her forever home. She does well with other dogs and will, most likely, do well with cats, especially if the cat is dog savvy. She will need a relatively quiet home without children and a family to continue her training and socialization, but she will reward this kindness with her devotion and loyalty. She is looking to bond with her special human. The adoption contract requires training with one of TRD's approved trainers.

    Karma

    rescue
    Breed: German Shepherd Dog
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Young
    Location: Alexandria, VA
    Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog (medium coat). Karma is a 14-month old German Shepherd puppy; she is spayed, microchipped, and UTD on her vaccines. Several months ago she was tossed out by her previous owners and left to fend for herself. She was picked up by an animal control who labeled her food aggressive, dog aggressive, and she was marked for death. After she was rescued, we learned that she is not food aggressive, or adverse to interacting with other dogs. Karma is just inexperienced and is now on her way to learning proper dog manners. She is a super-friendly, happy young girl who is looking to bond with her human. She is a typical female Shepherd with energy and intensity, and will be an awesome dog with someone who understands the breed. Karma is a high drive, high energy girl seeking a family who has significant experience with German Shepherds who has an active lifestyle. Her ideal family would be one with the knowledge to set clear, consistent boundaries; one that can give her experiences for socialization, leadership and structure. Previous understanding on establishing pack leadership and routine is a must. Karma is good with children, but due to her energy level, should be placed in a home with older children. She does get a long with dogs, but ABSOLUTELY no cats. She was on her own and making her own decisions for most of her young life so she is spending time with trainers to provide her with structure and leadership. She did have guarding issues due to her lack of structure, but she no longer exhibits such behavior. Continued training is required under the adoption contract with an approved trainer.

    rescue
    Breed: German Shepherd Dog
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: Forest, VA
    Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog (medium coat). Abby is new to her foster home. She is gentle, respectful, and quiet. She is fine with respectful children but does not like kids hanging on her or invading her space when she is resting. Older respectful kids are preferred. She is house trained and crate trained. Abby is smart and eager to please. She would probably most appreciate a quieter home and an easy going life style. Update: Abby is doing great in her foster home and is working on basic obedience. Like most GSD she picks up things quickly. Update: Abby is 7 now. She's a purebred black and tan German Shepherd (without the saddle back) who weighs 85lbs. She's full of energy even though she's older, and loves to play with toys. Doesn't always fetch, and likes to have you chase her around the yard to get it back. From what I've seen, she has a great recall inside and in the backyard. Knows how to sit, shake, and if you have a toy or treat, will lay down. S he comes with her collar, leash, crate, food bowl, and a small bag of her food. I would have to say she needs a home with no other dogs, or a young male dog willing to submit to her. She believes she's a little queen in her household. Gr eat with cats. Seems to be ok with children of any size, but parents should be aware of her size and her ability to accidentally knock them down. Abby's 7 years old and her adoption fee is 100 which covers the following: spay/neuter, microchip, heartworm testing, dhp/p, rabies, bordatella (agre appropriate vaccines), deworming, and all the care he received while with CVRR. All animals are on flea and tick and parasite prevention for the duration in fostercare. We are an volunteer group, who process the applications so please be patient and understand that it takes an average of 7-14 days to process the applications including reference checks, follow-up questions. You can expedite the process by providing accurate phone and email addresses for all your references. Time to make phone calls is limited and we often have multiple applications in process . We make every effort to move through them as quickly as possible. When your application is approved, we will schedule a meet-and-greet to see if the dog picks you too. If it seems that the adoption will be a good match for all, there is an adoption fee and an adoption contract to be signed. The adoption fees help cover a portion of the care provided to the animals. All dogs and pups are microchipped and all animals adopted out are spayed/neutered and fully vetted. **All of our animals have a lifetime commitment. If for any reason, the adoption does not work out, the cats and dogs are to come back to CVRR, which is a NO kill rescue.*** The foster family and the rescue volunteers will choose the new home based on the best fit for the dog/cat.

    Apollo

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: German Shepherd Dog
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: Forest, VA
    Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog (medium coat). Our first step is an application which can be filled out at www.cvrrescue.org For a very long time I only saw Apollo at adoption events. He was stiff and nervous and obviously out of his element. Amanda, his foster mom watched his body language, kept him focused on her and doing tricks for food, and when he had enough, she would quietly make her exit. It was hard for me to imagine him as the goofy, calm, loyal dog she would describe to me in our late night texting conversations. Then Christmas came and Apollo needed a place to wait for Santa Claus whi le his foster family was out of town. I was blown away by his manners, his easy going attitude, and his warm and lovable demeanor. Ok. He isn't perfect. On leash with no ability to flee, he can be a touch snappy if cornered....but beyond that I really just adore this guy. No cats or small kids (cats are toys apparently and kids.... Well just to be extra safe) but shepherd lovers, believe me. ... He is worth a second look. Recently he has been learning to PLAY with people... This from his foster mom... "So I don't have any other people who would really appreciate the significance of this - but Apollo is learning how to play with people. He's always played so nicely with dogs and loved it, but when Ryan or I would play with Max, he would just look on. He tried to play for the first time a few months ago, but he came up to Ryan and growled at him, so Ryan backed off to give him space. We didn't realize until afterward that he was probably just trying to participate. He didn't try again for a while, but he's really smart, so he just watched us play with Max. He's finally come back around to realizing that if he growls we'll stop, but if he frolics and opens his mouth a tiny bit and kind of butts it sideways against your hand or thigh he gets to play. He still doesn't really get what Max does to play with us (Max has several very involved games he plays that Pollo is still trying to figure out), but he's developing his own version, which is really big for him. He's also coming around to the idea that if he has a ball and he wants us to throw it, he can't put his face down on it or we won't take it. He's getting to where if he wants us to, he'll look away so it's clear we're allowed to throw it for him. It's not big for most dogs, but it's really big for him. He is learning that his more aggressive dog-play manners aren't going to work with people with less protective fur and is slowly adjusting to a more gentle/less scary-faced people version. Just wanted to brag on the big goob a little. Update: Apollo Garen has been a part of our family for a year and a half now, and we've got to say- he sure knows how to wriggle into your heart. He is beautiful, loyal, incredibly smart, sweet, and snuggly. He's had a hard life before foster care, but that is all well behind him now! He frolics around the house with his foster brother Max, he has learned how to play with toys and with people, and at the end of the day all he really wants is to snuggle up next to you. If he's allowed on the bed, that's where he wants to be! If he's not, he'll settle for the foot of the bed, or wherever there are the most comfy blankets that are close to you. He has settled a lot with both kids and cats, but we would still not suggest any sort of unsupervised time with either. In a calmer house with adults or only older children he will be exactly the love bug we have found him to be. He loves other dogs of all sizes and romps gleefully with everyone from tiny dachshunds to giant great pyrenees at the dog park. He would want me to note, however, he likes to play with really big dogs the best! He also loves his people, so he is fairly protective of them. He will bark and posture at the door toward strangers and tends to be very loud meeting people, but he will settle down as soon as they pass his inspection. In public he will get a little growly if he's restrained on a leash and someone won't get out of his face, but other than that he will happily ignore people just to smell the air and romp through the grass! He has a big enough build and enough 'warning' type behaviors that he would be a good companion for a late run outside or someone living in an apartment alone, but he is snuggly and chill enough with his people that he would still deeply bond with everyone in the house who was interested in being his friend. We love this dog from the bottom of our hearts, and whoever ends up with him in their life is going to be just as enamored as we are. Apollo's around 3 and his adoption fee is 175 which covers the following: spay/neuter, microchip, heartworm testing, dhp/p, rabies, bordatella (agre appropriate vaccines), deworming, and all the care he received while with CVRR. All animals are on flea and tick and parasite prevention for the duration in fostercare.

    Braun

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: German Shepherd Dog
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: Alexandria, VA
    Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog (medium coat). Braun is a large, young dog. He was left to his own devices at his previous home and will need some training. He will be very loyal to the human he choses to make a bond. Braun responds well to clicker/marker training but he is looking for someone to be his leader. He likes to play with balls and chew on bones. It does not appear that he has much play drive at the moment, but may have some prey drive. ***Braun is a NO for a home with cats. Braun is available for adoption, but will only be placed in a home with significant previous GSD e xperience (as an adult), one that understands leadership, structure, consistent training and boundaries, and one without young children. Braun has separation anxiety and his adopter will need to understand how to guide him and help manage this situation. He has made tremendous progress with his foster, but it is possible that it may simply be a "management" and not a cure. His issues are not containment-phobia, and he will kennel up. Wire kennels are not an acceptable method of containment for Braun. He will need an airline approved type kennel with a NSEW locking mechanism at this point in time. Excluding his SA, he is an excellent house dog. He's house trained, quiet, and will entertain himself while the foster is working or watching TV. His favorite things to do are to chew on his antlers, his KONG, or balls. He is a strong chewer. He loves to sleep on the bed and is a good foot warmer. He tends to stay in one place at night so once he's there, that's probably where you will find him in the morning. He knows to "sit" for his food, and ring a bell when he wants to go outside. Braun has been attending weekly lessons at P.U.P.S. Dog Obedience and he is doing very well. His adoption contract will have a clause stating that he must take at least 8 lessons with Karen Decker, of P.U.P.S. Dog Obedience and she is located in Columbia, Maryland or Melissa Pink in the Alexandria, VA area (vacaninecoach@gmail.com) would be an acceptable alternative trainer to Karen. If you are seriously interested in adopting Braun and have a trainer you have been working with over the years, please let us know and we will be happy to talk with them to see if we might be able to add them to our list of approved trainers. Braun is looking to bond with his handler and will do so quickly, but will continue to need guidance and opportunities to increase his self-confidence. He is a fantastic dog, a lot of fun, and will be incredibly loyal to his human. If you are looking for a velcro dog that you can work with, mold, and form an incredible bond with, then Braun might be the dog for you. Please do not apply to adopt Braun if you have children under the age of 15, cats, or small dogs. He will also not be placed in a home without the individual having significant knowledge of the breed and their idiosyncrasies. Braun is a good boy but he's looking for his special person. Will it be you? Requirements for adopting Braun: Previous GSD experience (as an adult) Understands and is capable of establishing pack leadership Active and capable of giving this young guy the physical as well as the mental stimulation he needs daily. If you are interested in welcoming Braun to your home, please check out out Adoptions Process page --> http://bit.ly/Adoption-TRD . Braun is currently in the Baltimore area and will have a training requirement with one of our approved trainers. If you are not yet approved to adopt from Training Rescue Dogs, please fill out our online application at www.trainingrescues.org. Our adoption fee for Braun is $450.00.
