FemaleGerman Shepherd Dog


Nosey Is Full of Life and Ready for Fun in the Sun

1 year old, female, small, black-and-tan German Shepherd
Good with other dogs: Yes
Good with children: Unknown
Good with cats: Unknown
Nosey is such a little cutie pie! This young, energetic girl came to us very thin and looking a bit sad. But she is such a sweetheart that we HAD to save her! Nosey is a real people pleaser, which is adorable to watch. She has been working with expert trainer Ryan Maciej over at The Barking Dog in Scottsdale and he reports that she is a wonderful student.
When Nosey first came to us, we quickly learned that she was very reactive to other dogs. But in stepped Ryan to work with her, and we are SO proud of our girl and all the progress she’s made. She’s been hanging out in play groups with tons of other dogs and has learned wonderful doggie manners. In addition, Ryan has worked with her on obedience, and she’s now a well-behaved doggie. She does still react through fences, but once she gets up close to the other dogs, she just wants to play!
This girl is high energy and needs an active family that could provide plenty of physical and mental exercise, as well as continual positive obedience training. Now that’s she’s got the basics down, we think she’d do great learning agility or other dog sports. We would recommend older children since she’s rambunctious and active and may knock down little ones.
If you can give Nosey an indoor home, you must fill out our online application to get the approval process started. We will only schedule meet and greets with an approved application. All staff members are volunteers and are not compensated for their time and expenses. Many juggle family and full-time careers while volunteering at Saving Paws. Please be patient, as sometimes it takes up to 5 days to process an application.

Shelter Description

"Saving Paws" rescue specializes in German Shepherd Dogs and Belgian Malinois. These are the two primary breeds used in military and law enforcement service worldwide. We also partner with other rescues and can assist in locating your perfect pet.

"Saving Paws" is a registered 501c3 non-profit corporation. All staff members are volunteers and are not compensated for their time and expenses. Donations and adoption fees offset the high cost of veterinary care, food, boarding and numerous other expenses. By adopting from “Saving Paws", you become our partner in the rescue. You can make a difference in both financial contribution and working to save deserving animals. Adopting a rescue dog saves two lives. The K-9 friend that you adopted and another that can be brought in by the space created. Open your heart and adopt today.

"Saving Paws" primarily obtains dogs from local "High Kill" shelters. We are often there last hope. Our adoptions have gone on become service dogs, search and rescue dogs, sport dogs, AKC title holders and of course cherished family pets and protectors. Please consider a rescue dog and give these wonderful animals a second chance.

Shelter Driving Directions

Currently our resources do not allow one central facility for our operations. We have many dogs in foster care and board others at the Canine Country Club. They are located in Phoenix, Arizona. All adoptions are by appointment. We do our best to be available and accommodate your schedule. However, being volunteer, we ask for your patience and assistance in all matters. A minor inconvenience is a small price to pay for helping a dog in need.

"Saving Paws" also participates in numerous adoption events year around. We will post these to our website and to this venue as they are scheduled.
