We would like to welcome Diego to our family. You are safe now! Diego was surrendered to a high kill shelter in Dalton. His family didn't speak any English so we have very limited knowledge of his background. So far, he has been excellent with other dogs, cats,adults and kids. He is estimated to be around 2 years old. He is already neutered, updated on his vaccines and is heartworm negative. He has not had much training, but learns quickly. He will need a home with leadership where he can continue to work on his manners, and become a great buddy!
GSDRGA needs your help!! We just saved these two sweet, young girls (about 1 year old) from a kill shelter in middle Georgia and they are on the way to the vet. These girls ended up at the shelter after a marijuana grow house was discovered by the local Sheriff's Department. The grow house was not occupied, and the detectives believe someone would come by once a week to check on the operation. Here's a link to the article about the grow house bust, which mentions our two friendly girls!
One of our fosters has stepped up and offered to take them both, but we desperately need funds to cover their vetting. Summer is always the busiest time for our Rescue, and this summer is proving no different. These girls will have to be caught up on all vaccines, and both need to be spayed and microchipped, and this is at the very least. We will post more about these girls after we get the vet's report and hopefully neither will have any further health issues, so keep them in your thoughts and keep your fingers crossed for negative heartworm tests!! Phoebe is in the top photo, and Ursula is in the bottom photo. When we met them, they loved on us and were so happy to have some human interaction. They were also great with other dogs and even kittens at the shelter. Please consider helping us get Ursula & Phoebe healthy and get them into loving forever homes! No donation is too small, and it all goes to the vet care for our GSD's.
Hi there! My name's Ella, although I like Ella Bella too. I'm a smiling girl and am very eager to please. I like being wherever my human is, am quickly learning to walk on the leash, and love chasing tennis balls. I already know how to “sit” and am trained on an invisible fence. I've been told that my whole body wags when it's feeding time and, happily, I'm not possessive or food aggressive; I'm starting to like being hand fed too. I get along great with adults, kids, and submissive male or female dogs about my size. I played with my foster parents' dog all the time. I was a puppy mill mama so I don't do well with smaller dogs and don't like being “herded” by more dominant dogs. Funnily enough, I don't bother with cats unless they start running. Maybe I think of them as large tennis balls.
I'm a high energy dog that loves to play and run around every day, all day. While another dog could be a playmate, I think I'd be good as an only fur kid too with regular play and exercise. If you don't know much about German Shephards, that's okay. We can learn about each other together.
Hi I'm Lola, if you are a follower of this website you may know my story already, but if not let me catch you up. You see all these puppies all over the place, well they belong to me. They are being adopted, but I still need some TLC before I can look for you. That's right you, you know who you are. I can't wait to spend time with you and your family. It seems around Christmas time I found myself alone in a shelter, pregnant to top it off. I watched for my owner to come and get me, but they never came. The good people of GSDRGA heard that I was going to be put to sleep. So this nice lady came and picked me up, took me to a vet and then to her nice warm house. She and her family cared for me until it was time. I had my bag packed and ready to go, good thing because I had a lot of trouble having the puppies. I had a total of 11 little ones 9 girls and 2 boys. I'm sad to say that two of my sweet girls didn't make it and I was unable to produce enough milk for all 9 pups. So my foster mom took over and begin hand feeding my little ones. Yes, I know they are spoiled, but they have grown into my pride and joy. They have gone to live with their forever families.
I had this thing called heart worms and I was treated and I did very well, but it seems that I hurt myself and was never treated for that injury, because of that my range of motion is limited in my leg. Well guess what, Iheaded back to see the dr's and I got my leg fixed. My surgery was successful. That means I can start looking for my family!
Hi, my name is Duchess. I'm a sweet little 3 yr old girl. I currently weigh 55 lbs but everyone thinks I'll gain another 15 lbs or so once I get the proper nutrition. I was rescued from Dalton Animal Control and am, sadly, heartworm positive and have fleas and ticks. I got to ride in a car and feel the wind blow through my fur when I went to the vet. I liked the breeze. I'll be happy when I'm given a clean bill of health.
I'm easy-going, shy and love being wherever my human is. Even better, I'm house trained and know a few basic commands like “sit” already. Being a quick learner, I'm sure I'll learn other commands soon. My new foster mom has another German Shepherd girl named Simba, and we get along great. I should be up for adoption in 1 month or so. I hope to see you when that time comes.
GSDRGA would greatly appreciate any help you can give me. Every little bit helps. You can donate at http://www.gashepherd.org/make-a-donation.html
