Max came from a rural shelter we work with, his owners turned them in because one of them became very sick, and they did not have the resources to care for Max.
He's a sweet boy, gets along with dogs, and children that he has met. He's 2 1/2 years old. Max is Heartworm positive, though. After he settles in, we'll begin his treatment and he will be ready for adoption in a couple months.
Max came to us at a time when our funds are low but we will treat him and get him healthy. We're accepting sponsorships for Max, his treatment will cost about $500. So, if we had 25 supporters contribute $20, we'd be there, so please help spread the word. To donate, visit http://www.gashepherd.org/make-a-donation.html
Hi folks! My name is Bodie. I am a young guy that has tons of energy. I get along great with my 5 brothers and sisters in my foster home. I am too smart! I love to play and rough house. I've been told that I don't know my own size or strength so I wouldn't be good in a house with young kids. I don't want to hurt anyone but I get so excited that I, sometimes, jump up and can look scarey. My foster mom and dad think I just look silly but they are used to big silly teenage dogs like me. I love to play with toys. There are not enough toys in the whole world for me to play with. I love to chase the ball. (I'm still learning how to bring it back) I am very good on a leash, in a crate and in the house. I ask to go out side. I bark very loudly when someone comes to the door. I can get a little pushy at the door but my mom just gives me a little tug on my collar and I calm right down. I am searching for that special someone that has high energy like me. I would love to have someone that would play with me. Throw a toy for me and snuggle me every day. I would love to sleep in the bed but I'm not allowed so I settle for getting as close to the bed as possible to sleep. I will stay in my crate when I need to but I love to be right up underfoot. I am what mom calls a 'velcro dog'. She says this is the best for training. I guess what I am asking is do you have a high play drive like me? Please consider letting me become a family member. I promise I will be fun! Bodie
Laila is able to meet adopters. Her recovery from surgery is expected to last 4 more weeks. During that time, we will increase her level of activity to be sure she is feeling OK. So far, she is free form pain during exercise and has no mobility problems.
She will do best in a moderately active home where she can get regular exercise. She will need to be kept on supplements such as glucosamine.
This sweet little girl came to GSDRGA through a rural shelter. She was walking funny, and we learned she had rickets. After feeding high quality food and letting her get regular exercise, Laila was not getting better. She was tired and hurt after exercising, not normal for a pup about 7 months old. GSDRGA took her to a specialist, for testing and X-Rays, which confirmed she has hip dysplasia and elbow dysplasia. Laila will need surgery to scrape the calcification in her elbows so she can move freely without pain. Her recovery will last about 4 weeks, and it is possible that if she gets this relief, she may not need hip surgery. She will be able to run and play. Keep her in your thoughts, as we raise funds for surgery. Cost of Laila's elbow surgery is estimated at $2800. Laila will be not be ready for adoption until February or March.
Thanks to Laila's Supporters: Renzo & Bimmer, Gracie, Joshua Gordon, Angela Sousa, in memory of Hannah Sousa, Lily, Lizzie and Laura Crumley, Hiker, Jennifer & Sadie and Willow.
Browning is the runt of the litter. She loves to play with her sisters and cuddle. She is so cute and loves to be held and loved. We are helping Browning to put on weight and she is growing beautifully. She would be great in any home especially with children and together with other dogs. She is friendly, warm and a fun puppy!
Hi Everyone, my name is Mauser I am eight weeks old and my foster mom is always telling me "you are such a good boy". I am really smart and love to play! Toys, toys, toys, so many toys! I love them all, my foster dad thinks I am funny. I know how to squeak them all. I love to go outside, that is where I go potty, chase leaves and run like the wind! I also live with a BIG German Shepherd, she is teaching me manners. I have also got to play with children, some like to carry me like a baby others run and squeal so I chase them. I want to go to a forever home that my foster mom keeps telling me about, I will love you with all of me. Oh, I sleep in my crate and take naps in my crate. If my mom has to leave me I stay in my crate. My mom loves that I sleep all night without a peep. That has been almost two weeks now. If you are looking for a good dog, I'm your boy
Chey is tan and black and the bigger of the 3 pups. She had a beautiful nature. She loves to cuddle and play together with her sisters. She would best be suited in a home with or without children. She loves other dogs and gets along well with them!
Kahr is the spirited one in the litter and is tan. She is so cuddly and loves to play with her sisters. She is full of energy. She would best be suited to find a home that is loving, warm, and she would do well especially with children. Kahr is fun, and will be a good friend for the family.
Lola is the momma to our 9 sweet puppies. She is an absolute sweet heart. She is vaccinated and we spayed her when we did the c section for her babies. She is around 4 years old knows basic obedience and walks well on a leash. She loves to play ball and sqeaky toys. Lola gets along great with other dogs but sorry no cats she has a high prey drive.
Lola is going to start her heartworm treatment in the next week. We are also looking to see if we can help her front leg. She does not have much range of motion it looks like an old injury that the muscle attached itself in the wrong place. Not painful for her just want to see if a surgery will help her gain more range of motion. We will keep you posted on her progress abs what the surgeon suggests. Please visit our website and donate for Lola's heartworm treatment
2/4/2014 - Lola is having puppies, she went into labor early this AM! One girl so far, stay tuned for updates. It may be a long day
2/5/2014 - Big thanks to Lake City Animal Hospital and their staff. I took my foster dog Lola in after only giving birth to 1 puppy all day. They were quick to get me in and her set up. Lola was able to birth 4 more puppies. Thinking she was done we did an xray and found she had 6 more. We decided that a c - section was the best choice, Lola was done and the oxytocin was not doing much. All 11 puppies are doing great and mom although exhausted is doing well. She will have her paws full for quit some time. We have 9 girls and 2 boys! Again thank you lake city animal hospital for bringing new life into this world last night. Everyone was amazing.
2/21/14 - Lola's pups are growing and doing well. Not sure who dad could be yet but a few are brindle and few are black. We are planning to treat Lola's Heartworms in a couple weeks. She can be treated while she's nursing. Because she is nursing, we still need dry puppy food donated. Salmon would be best for her, her coat is still dull. Taste of the Wild or Earthborn Holistic is a good food. Gift cards to Petco and Petsmart are fine too, or Visa gift cards. We also need bedding.
Big thanks to Katie for taking care of these little ones!

Jackson: Adoption Pending
Meet Jackson, a 3 year old male GSD who came to us from a family. They found him as a stray and held onto him while looking for his owners. Sadly, no one came to get him and they could not keep him. Jackson is heartworm positive we will start his treatment soon. Jackson is good with dogs, kids and people, but we are not sure about cats as his foster home doesn't have one.
