Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog. Adoption Fee: 125.00. Hi my name is Gabbie and I'm a 10 year old German Shepherd looking for a new home and family. I'm a little unsure of why I'm here at the shelter and would really love to be back in a home as soon as possible. The shelter ladies tell me that I'm here because of some issues between me and another dog at my old home, who was much younger than me. I didn't mean to cause any tension and I hope someone will give me another chance to prove I can be the best doggie friend ever! I'm just a little older and set in my ways....kinda like some hoomans! Maybe you have a spot for a golden girl like me?

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.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 200.00. Introducing Harlee! This gal came to the Marshmallow Foundation in hopes of finding her 'fur' ever home! Harlee is energetic, playful, knows how to sit, and doesn't mind getting groomed! She loves to be pet and cuddled and enjoys to walk alongside you or just hang out at your feet while you go about your business. Miss Harlee will need to be in a home where she can be given lots of enrichment activities and outside play time every day! She is very intelligent and is able to pick things up fairly quickly when consistency and training are applied. Harlee does not appear to have much experience around other dogs or cats. For that reason, we recommend that she be the only pet in the household until she can become more socialized and comfortable around other furry friends. She loves kids though! All introductions to other family members or children should be slow and supervised so that all parties are comfortable with the new changes. We want to THANK YOU for your consideration in adding one of our AMAZING shelter pets to your family! Please visit our website to learn more about our shelter, adoptable animals, adoption and foster processes, volunteer opportunities, and much, much more! www.marshmallowfoundation.org
