About Odin Adoption Pending

Howdy! I’m Odin. I am SO excited to meet you! I have been living with my foster mom for nearly two weeks and there are three other dogs here. YAY! I always have someone to play with. Mom still makes me rest in the crate during the day though. She called me…..clumsy. That’s the word she used. I don’t know what she means, but I think it has something to do with my long, fluffy tail knocking stuff off the table, or making balls fly off this big thing called a Christmas tree that she has INSIDE. Not sure what that’s about. She also sighs when I step on her feet. Not my fault that my feet are big; if she would just pet me…like ALL the time, I would not be forced to try and get her attention. I don’t really like my crate, but I will go in there when asked. I also sing to mom and the human boy as they leave – just to let them know I love them and will miss them while they are gone. It makes mom happy when I sit when asked. I always take the treats really easy from her hand. The youngest GSD that lives here has a “shark mouth” that mom doesn’t like. I am proud when I please her, because I just want her to love me. There are also toys here that squeak and are soft. I love throwing them all over the house and up in the air. When I do this, Moose, the cool Great Dane mix that runs with me in the yard, will try to beat me to the toy to pick it up. We play tug of war and chase. I love both these games. Moose rocks. Jack is a grumpy older Lab, and he always growls at me – I don’t think he likes to play as much, so I just leave him alone…after 3 or 4 attempts. I have not ever had a home where I got to live indoors or walk with a human on a leash. I am still learning to adapt to both. Tile floors are slippery and tricky, but I am clever and am learning how to “slide” and take corners without my legs slipping out from underneath me. THAT was embarrassing. I am trying not to be afraid of the leash, and I am learning that mom likes me to walk right by her, but when something startles me…I still want to bolt. My mom is patient with me, and keeps trying, and I feel safer with her by the day. Mom says that I am a good cuddler, with a soft coat. I like when it is my turn to sit in her lap each night. Mom tells me that there is a family out there looking for a sweet, silly, handsome boy like me. I hope she’s right…..All I want for Christmas is my own family. Is that you?

ear Adopter, Hi, my name is Brooklyn. I am a stunning 3-year-old young lady. I love to play ball, and will fetch for you as long as you are willing to throw the ball. I am fantastic with other dogs and cats. I would love to have a big family with kids who would be willing to play and cuddle. A canine sibling would be awesome, too. I am still new to this home thing, so I am trying hard to learn all the rules. I am housebroken and crate trained, so no worries there. In fact, I LOVE my crate and will just go lay in it on my own. I have no problem sleeping in it at night either. I do, however, prefer to eat alone. I do not mind you being near me, but if there is a lot going on around me, it is hard for me to remember that I am supposed to be eating and not playing. If you think I sound like the gal for you, get with my foster mom PLEASE!!! Love, Brooklyn 😉 A note from Brooklyn's Foster Mom: Hey everyone! Brooklyn is a doll. I agree, she would do great with a big family. We have two kids, age 6 and 12, who are both very active and loud. She does not mind, and seems to enjoy the crazy, chaotic house we have. We also have another large breed dog, a cat, and a water dragon here - all of which she does not seem to mind. She does not chase the cat, but will follow us or our other dog around EVERYWHERE we go. She is a love bug, and gives tons of kisses and expects them in return, too. We are working on her walking skills and she is getting better with each walk. She is also trying hard to learn basic commands such as sit and stay. Brooklyn kennels very well, and does not whine or have any issues while staying in her kennel through the night. She is a very sweet dog and would love a home of her own, so if you feel you could be the family for her, please get with me and come meet her. show less

Clooney is such a wonderful young boy! His interests in life are playing with any and all toys given, following his foster parents all over the house, and FOOD! As Clooney’s foster, I can attest that he is a very lovable boy. He always wants to please, and is almost always happily attached to my side. He’s an extremely quick learner, and has picked up on my verbal and visual commands with ease. He’s learned to go to his crate with a little encouragement, and will let you know when he wants to go potty. He knows how to “sit,” is learning “down,” and when it’s feeding time, he’s learned to be patient and wait for the command to “Go!” He gets along great with my small Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, although he has more energy than his foster brother, and sometimes needs to let the older dog have a break from play. He goes on frequent walks, and does really well on the leash. He’s very vocal, but not necessarily a barker. He’s ALWAYS wagging his tail, and he loves exploring! Clooney loves his people, and is so happy to be told what a good boy he is. I have loved fostering Clooney, and it will be hard to say good-bye, but I know his forever home is waiting for him. GSDs are a slow maturing breed, and at 11 months, Clooney is still a puppy. Like all young GSDs, Clooney will need plenty of exercise and training to mature into the wonderful adult dog I know he will be. Anyone looking for a loving and affectionate GSD will fall in love with Clooney! show less

Hear Ye, Hear Ye! Announcing the arrival of her royal highness, Queen Margaery! Greetings all Game of Throne followers and canine aficionados! I know you have viewed my stunning photo portfolio and that you are now wanting to confirm that my personality is just as amazing! Trust me…whoever said “beauty is only skin deep," hadn’t met the depths of me! Just like my theatrical namesake, Margaery Tyrell, I am intelligent, perceptive, quite clever (and of course, gorgeous). In terms of liveliness, my foster family considers me playful yet calm. I greatly enjoy playing tug-of-war or chasing balls with my foster siblings, however, I also relish playing quietly with toys on my own, sunbathing and hanging out at my foster parents' feet. I love all kind of spirited humans, big and small, and I have yet to meet a fellow pooch that I couldn’t get along with. Although I would be happy being an only dog, I wouldn’t mind having a canine companion to play with. Size-wise, I am considered a petite GSD. Temperament-wise, I am the breed standard: my nature is protective, my bark is strong, and when I feel my home and/or humans are threatened, I will proudly display my impressive hackles to discourage possible intruders. I am a Queen, after all, and that’s been my job! Although I will forever be willing to bear the responsibility of keeping my furever family’s castle safe, I am also willing to abdicate my throne in exchange for a place to relax, play, and entertain my new family. So now you know me inside and out! If you think I’m a match for your family, please don’t hesitate to submit your adoption application! Please check back for updates, additional photos, and announcements regarding my attendance at upcoming events! I look forward to making your acquaintance soon! show less

Monte is a big boy with an even bigger personality. He adores people, and loves to cuddle on the couch with his foster family. Monte’s regal appearance commands attention when he enters a room, and his ability to “talk” with you and his lovely “singing” voice make him the most entertaining companion. Monte is house trained and crate trained. He knows basic commands and is eager to please his people. Monte demonstrates his loyalty to his humans by “guarding” the front door. This is fine if there is a menacing stranger, but his foster family is training him to go to his crate when the doorbell rings, so he doesn’t scare away their friends and neighbors! The training is going well, and Monte is learning to relax. Monte is looking for a home where there is a laid back atmosphere, and a nightly stroll as opposed to a nightly jog. He is a big handsome goofball with lots of love to shower on the right humans. Is that you? Due to injuries he sustained that were sadly left untreated, Monte has an old fracture, and the way it has healed has left him with some pain. He is also showing signs of hip dysplasia in his opposite leg. Pain medication alone will not be enough. Monte has been undergoing water treatments to strengthen his rear legs and give him better mobility in the rear quadrant. His front legs have compensated for his rear legs, and he is still a strong, vibrant dog at heart. Unfortunately, Monte is not a candidate for surgery, so his discomfort has been successfully managed with adequan shots weekly, platinum performance (a supplement) and fish oil twice a day. show less

Those gorgeous dark brown eyes, huge expressive ears and that luxuriously soft coat - there's no doubt that Octavia is one gorgeous girl. Tavi, as we call her, is a good sized female GSD with a sweet, affectionate nature and a joy of life. Tavi enjoys playing with her foster mom's 3 GSDs in their rough and tumble manner, but she also knows how to temper her strength to play more gently with smaller dogs. She loves to chase balls and will often bring them to be thrown again and again. Sometimes, though, it's just fun to play keep away and she'll dance back while laughing and begging her foster to chase. Tavi has learned to politely wait at the door to go outside, she sits for her meals and she sleeps freely at her foster's home. She walks well on a leash and isn't mouthy or jumpy. She loves to be petted and sit next to her person, leaning in for some head scratches. Having been abandoned by a prior owner, Tavi can get anxious when her foster leaves, so she is currently crated while her foster is at work. We have also started adding a mild non-prescription pet calmative to help her relax until she's more comfortable being alone in her surroundings. With her foster at home, she's happy and full of life. Tavi would love a family with older children (due to her size) and another dog to play with. She'd love to help her people stay fit through daily walks or runs and promises to help reduce stress at the end of a work day by sitting near her people and listening to their problems. She is truly a charming and beautiful companion just waiting for her people. show less

Hey there - I'm Ross! My mom says I have the face of a teddy bear - so she calls me Bear. Whatever .... she and the boy human are pretty cool so I don't care what they call me. I just love to be near them. They pet me, and let me cuddle with them, and sit in their laps. Well....like they could move me... I spent my first three years outside in the yard. Being allowed in the house is AMAZING! There are ALL kinds of things in here to play with. There are things that squeak, and bounce, and wiggle. I LOVE these wonderful things they call toys. I have three canine foster brothers who have taught me to play chase, keep away, and tug of war with all these toys. Being inside is so nice because I am always warm and dry. I still kinda like the puddles in the yard, though. Sorry Mom, those are my footprints on the floor, too. I am still learning the routines of "structured living" as Mom calls it. She feeds me twice a day on a VERY regular schedule, and I'm so happy that she always does. I am learning to sit on command for a treat. Who knew that was all it takes to make a human happy? House manners are something brand new for me. Apparently it is NOT good manners to put your feet on the counter to help mom make peanut butter sandwiches. Even after that, Mom let me stay inside, and continued to pet me and love me. People can be amazing. I am so happy to be in a real home that I smile all the time. I can't wait to find my very own furever home - and soon. I'm still learning how things go, but Mom says I am super smart, (and goofy!) like most of the other young male dogs - and some family will be really lucky to get me! I hope she is right! I can't wait to meet my future family..... show less
