Brandi is a beautiful, 3-year old pup who came to us malnourished and lethargic with hair loss. But look at her now!! She is filling out and her coat is becoming soft and thick. Not only is she sweet, but she’s a trouper! And look at her beautiful markings! In foster care, Brandi is comfortable, and relaxed. She’s a little shy but continues to open up in her foster home. She has adapted well to her crate, which she views as her safe haven. She’s not interested in toys yet, but who knows, maybe you will find that special toy that she cherishes. Brandi loves to be outside enjoying the fabulous weather, while watching the squirrels run up and down the redwoods! Brandi would do best in a quiet adult home with that special person who can build her confidence and help with her shyness. Brandi is a sweet, young pup who is looking for a place to call home. Is that your home? Her reaction to cats or other small creatures is unknown at this time, but we suspect they would not be a good match.  Her adopter should have experience in raising a shy GSD, or other large breed working dog. Brandi is a young dog who will benefit from obedience training (based upon positive reinforcement) to ensure that she continues on the path of a well-behaved canine citizen. Brandi is a stunning dog with a sweet personality. Are you her forever person? show less

This 3-year old male German Shepherd loves to have his belly rubbed, and just look at those big brown appreciative eyes! Cairo is taking supplements for what our Veterinarian partner determined is the beginnings of hip dysplasia. This should slow down the process and there is no need to add prescription medications at this time. He has a different gait but it sure doesn’t slow him down and he is not in any pain. In fact he gets around quite well! Cairo is settling into his foster home, and loves being part of the family. He is house trained, crate trained, and non-destructive.  We will be introducing him to his foster siblings very soon, but what we can tell so far, is that he appears to be a real Ladies’ man, even with his cute little bobtail from an unknown prior injury!!  This handsome boy hasn’t shown any interest in toys, as he prefers to lounge in the sun. He walks well on leash, and loves car rides. He will make a great companion for a lucky adopter. We anticipate that he would do best in a low to moderate activity home with an adopter who is willing to address his medical needs as they change. Only older children in an adoptive home will be considered. His reaction to cats or other small creatures is unknown at this time, but we suspect they would not be a good match. It will be necessary for an adopter to have experience in raising a GSD, or other large breed working dog. An adopter who will begin basic obedience training based upon positive reinforcement is recommended to ensure Cairo remains on the path of a well-behaved canine citizen, although he is pretty well behaved in the home. show less

Sofia is a 1-year old female German Shepherd dog that was surrendered to Animal Control Services, along with her 3-month old puppy. She didn’t have the best start in life--she was scared and shut down when she entered our program. But dogs have a way of moving forward and not looking back. She is now safe and our organization will ensure that she will have a positive future. Sophia is relaxed and comfy in her foster home and loves human attention. She has a good appetite and has gained weight! She was a nurturing mother to her puppy that has since been adopted. She is just a bit older than a puppy herself. She is hesitant about walking on a leash, but is improving every day. Sofia needs a quiet adult home with an adopter who can build her confidence. Sophia is a little hesitant around men so we’re looking for the perfect match in an environment that will lead to a successful transition, and not have great potential for setbacks. Do you have another dog? Sophia loves other dogs, and we have seen a companion dog bring her out of her shell! Although Sofia is very well behaved, an adopter should provide her with the basic obedience training (based upon positive reinforcement) that any young dog requires. It will be necessary for an adopter to have recent experience in raising a shy GSD or other large breed working dog.   She’s waiting just for you! show less

Tavo is a handsome, solid 6-year old black sable boy whose family could no longer care for him, so he’s looking for new digs. Tavo has had obedience training, but would benefit from a refresher course. Because he loves to play with toys they could be used as an excellent training tool. He is responsive to simple corrections and has great focus on his human. He is a wonderful, loving, dedicated companion, and is happy being near his humans, but is quite independent. He enjoys walks and rides in the car (although he is very vocal on car rides). While truly a “bull in a China shop,” he is a fairly well-mannered, non-destructive gentleman, who will make a great addition to the right home. Tavo has spent most of his time outside in a kennel, but has adjusted nicely to being a house dog! Who wouldn’t! He sleeps comfortably all night in his crate, and is settling down in his foster home. He will take treats gently most of the time, but might try to snitch one from your hand! We’re working on correcting this behavior, and he is learning very fast, as he only wants to please his handler, but caution is a must. Tavo has not been socialized much with other animals, so he might do best as an “only dog.” He requires a home without cats or other small animals, and because of his size, only an adult home or one with older children will be given consideration. Tavo is a great dog looking for his forever family. He needs people who are willing to devote time to forming a strong, lasting, trust-based bond, offer him a safe, loving environment, and provide ongoing obedience training, based upon positive reinforcement. He is a lot of dog, and only high level experienced adopters who can provide strong leadership and proper management of working breed behavior will be considered. Tavo must be given daily exercise and mental stimulation to expend his energy. He is not an average pet. Are you game?? We are waiting for your call! show less
