This 4-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 has settled into his foster home, and loves being part of the family. He is house trained, crate trained, and non-destructive. He was recently introduced to another male dog, and did really well, but does like to be the center of attention. We have also observed 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 very well behaved in the home.

Cami is a 2-year old female German Shepherd/Dutch Shepherd mix dog that was surrendered to our organization when her family’s living situation changed and they were no longer able to care for her. Cami was loved and well cared for by her prior family. She loves to play with other dogs, but does have a rough and tumble play style. She is crate trained, knows basic commands, is a good listener, walks well on leash, and very well behaved in the home. She adores being with her humans, and will often land in your lap if allowed. While she can be a bit shy upon first meeting, she comes around pretty quick once you earn her trust. Cami will need a somewhat active home with an adopter who can continue to help build her confidence. She would most likely excel at a doggie sport of her liking, or enjoy being your running partner. We believe that she would be most successful in a home with another dog to show her the ropes and keep her company. However, that being said, if her humans are around most of the time, she may be satisfied as an only dog, as long as she is kept mentally and physically stimulated. Because of her high prey drive, a home without cats or other small critters is a must. It will be necessary for an adopter to have recent successful experience in raising a GSD, Belgian Malinois, Dutch Shepherd, or other large breed working dog. An adopter who will continue her obedience training based upon positive reinforcement is recommended, to ensure she remains on the path of a well behaved canine companion. We are currently screening applications for the best possible fit.

Lyla is a 3 1/2-year old female German Shepherd/Belgian Malinois mix dog. She’s a very sweet girl, who is doing really well in foster care, but is now ready for her forever home. She is house trained and crate trained. She has not had many life experiences, which makes her a bit shy with new people. Her new person can help her discover our great big world to overcome her shyness! Lyla has rough and tumble fun with her foster brothers and she also loves toys and balls. She is full of energy, and would make a great running partner. We believe she would also excel at agility, or another doggie sport of her liking. Lyla completed a 4-week basic obedience program and did very well learning commands. Lyla has more of the Malinois traits, is somewhat of a dominant female, and is really smart. An adopter must commit to continuing her training, and offering her firm guidance and leadership, setting boundaries and behavior expectations based upon positive re-enforcement methods. This will keep Lyla physically and mentally challenged, and ensure she remains on the path of a well-behaved canine citizen. An adult-only adopter who understands the Belgian Malinois temperament, and have experience in successfully raising this breed will only be considered. Due to her prey drive, an adoptive home must not have cats or small critters. While she does get along with non-invasive male dogs, we feel she would be best suited as an only dog. Our sweet pup will make a great companion dog for whoever is lucky enough to adopt her. Are you ready to go and meet that big world with this beautiful dog at your side?

Maia is a 4 ½ year old female German Shepherd/Malinois mix who is looking for her forever home. While she is quite comfortable in her foster home, she really wants a family to call her own. Maia had been surrendered by her owner to local animal services after having given birth to six beautiful puppies. Her puppies have all found their adoptive homes, and it is now Maia’s turn to find a home of her own where she will no longer be used as a breeder dog. Maia was initially extremely shy; however, she has come out of her shell being in foster care, and wants nothing more than to be by your side. She is crate trained and house trained, and has never had any accidents since being placed in foster care. She walks nicely on leash, but does get excited and at times will pull, but minor corrections will bring her back into line. Maia loves to play with her soccer ball, chasing it, and will bring it back and drop it at your feet, so you can throw it again. She would also make a great running partner. Maia is a very special pup, with a challenging temperament that only an experienced handler would be able to manage in order to keep her out of trouble. For this reason, we will be looking for applicants who understand firm guidance and consistency to hardwire acceptable behavior, so patience is key. Maia is quite selective with the dogs that she wants to interact with, and the fact that she has a very rough and tumble play style that can get her into mischief, it is best that she be the only dog in the home to ensure success. Maia is going to make a wonderful doggie companion for whoever has the necessary skills and is lucky enough to adopt her. She is very sweet and loving, and since her primary motivator is her people, she will climb up for snuggles with you on the couch if allowed. She sometimes forgets that jumping up on you is unacceptable, but is improving. Because of her prey drive, a home without cats or other small critters is a must. Only experienced adopters who have successfully raised a GSD, Belgian Malinois or other large breed dog will be considered, and one who can continue obedience training based upon positive reinforcement to ensure Maia remains on the path of a well-behaved canine citizen.

Rubi is a 10-week old female German Shepherd-Husky mix who was surrendered to our organization due to her family members having developed allergies and were no longer able to care for her. Initially, she was a bit overwhelmed when meeting the resident dogs in her foster home, but has now become comfortable, and is a non-stop puppy player! In just a few days, she found her bark and a little bit of sassy attitude! Her foster family is working on house training and getting her acclimated to her crate. In just a few days, she was able to sleep all night in her crate without issue. She exhibits typical puppy behavior and will use her mouth to communicate, but is learning that this is unacceptable, taking cues from her foster mom and fur siblings to direct those sharp little puppy teeth in a different direction. Her first visit to the vet was uneventful; she was a very happy-go-lucky pup taking in all the attention. She even allowed them to trim her nails with no problem. Rubi loves to run and play with the other dogs, but will also entertain herself. She is a pretty smart little munchkin, who has already mastered the sit command. We will be working on additional basic commands as time progresses. Rubi will require a somewhat active home with an adopter committed to continuing her obedience training, and helping to build her confidence. We would love to see her in a home with another dog to help show her the ropes, but feel that she would also do well as an only dog, as long as her new family is home more than gone, and can provide the care and attention that every young puppy needs. Only older children in an adoptive home will be considered. No cats or small critters in the home will be accepted. It will be necessary for an adopter to have recent successful experience in raising a GSD, Belgian Malinois, Dutch Shepherd, or other large breed working puppy. An adopter who will continue her obedience training based upon positive reinforcement is recommended, to ensure she remains on the path of a well-behaved canine companion. We are currently screening applications for the best possible fit; however, Rubi will not be available until she has completed all of her age appropriate vaccinations and has been spayed, which will most likely be end of August or early September.

Sofia is a 2-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. Sofia 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. She 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? Sofia 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!

Tavo is a handsome, solid 7-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 has settled 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 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!
