We rescued Schatzi from a local shelter. She's a pretty girl about 2-3 years old.
She is recovering from a respiratory infection right now, which happens frequently when we rescue dogs from shelters. We got her to the vet right away, and she's on antibiotics. She is ready to meet adopters.
We're learning more about Schatzi as she settles in, but she is friendly, and gets along with dogs and cats so far. We think she would do well with kids.
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.
Max is a sweet boy, and he gets along well with dogs and children. He is 2 1/2 years old, and he is a big, strong, gorgeous GSD. Unfortunately, Max is heartworm positive, and will begin treatment next month. Max will not be up for adoption until late April or May. He is otherwise healthy and active, and he loves being outside and playing fetch. He is very sweet-natured and playful, and he will make an excellent pet for an active to moderately active home. He is learning basic commands and manners, and he is picking new words and routines up very quickly.
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
My name is Raina or Honey. I answer to both. I am a very sweet girl that gets along well with my foster mom and dad PLUS my 5 brothers and sisters! I am very good in the house and only bark when someone is really here. (Not like one of my sisters. She barks all the time.) I do not like small animals though my foster parents have several small birds. They just scolded me when I first looked at the little birds and I never (well, just one other time) even looked at them. My foster mom was so proud of me for ignoring them. I like to play outside with all my other brothers and sisters. I like my big back yard. I am a little older so some people don’t want me. I really don’t understand that because since I am older I am more settled and don’t do all the silly puppy stuff. I don’t get on furniture. I walk really well on a leash. I will pull if I see a small animal but if you are like my foster mom and catch me when I first look and just give me a little pull I don’t pay those little critters any attention at all. Because I don’t like small animals, mom says I need an owner that pays attention to my surroundings. That way I don’t get into any trouble. I wish you could see me. I am so pretty and have an amazing soft coat. I am almost gold! I excellent manners when I am fed my dinner. If anyone (dogs or people) come around my bowl I don’t make a fuss. I am just so sweet! I really need a home where someone will love me enough to let me be a forever dog. I am perfectly happy just hanging out in the house with my people. Please look into your heart and see if there is room for a middle aged girl like me. I will reward you with all of my love and devotion. Thanks, Raina/Honey
Laila is almost recovered from elbow surgery, for elbow dysplasia, and can meet adopters! She appears to be free from pain during exercise and has no mobility problems.
Laila will do best in a moderately active home where she can get regular exercise, but not maintain an overly active lifestyle. She will need to be kept on supplements such as glucosamine.
Laila is about 1 year old and gets along with dogs and cats. She'd do best with another dog as a playmate. She loves to be around her people, and has lived with children. Because of her age, we recommend a moderately active home where she can begin obedience training to give her the structure that a young GSD needs.
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 had surgery to scrape the calcification in her elbows so she can move freely without pain. Her recovery was about 4-6 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 late 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.
Chey is tan and black and the bigger of Holly's pups. She has 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.
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
Hayley is a super energetic puppy with a keen sense of smell. She loves to play with Midnight a 1 and 1/2 year old German Shepherd in her foster home as well as with her sister Dory from the same litter. She is almost housebroken as long as she has an opportunity to go outside as soon as she wakes up from her nap." Midnight is trying to teach her how to use the doggy door to go outside. Hayley is smart and will catch on very fast. She would do well in a home with another dog.
Dory is a very affectionate puppy and loves her belly scratched but can be play fighting with her litter mate Hayley the next second. She is close to being housebroken as long as she has the chance to go out immediately after waking up. She is learning to use a doggy door but needs a little more time on that. Dory is smart and learns quickly, it is hard to realize that she is only 5 weeks old.
Meet Zach! Zach is one of Lola's puppies. He is half German Shepherd but we are not sure who his father is, we think it's a large breed dog. Zach is a love - he is more than happy to snuggle in a lap all afternoon if you let him! He's learning to sit and come and is doing really well on leash! He's currently with his brother Toby and the two of them together after pretty hilarious!!
Meet Toby - Toby is one of Lola's puppies. He is half German Shepherd but we are not sure who his father is, we think it's a large breed dog. Toby is a sweettheart of a boy!! He's a quick study and is already sitting and staying on command! He loves people and is doing really well with leash training!
Hello World, My name is Karen which means pure and beautiful female. The stars must have been aligned when I was named because I am pure and beautiful both inside and outside. I am one of Lola's lovely puppies and like some beautiful females I am confident, outgoing and a little spoiled. You would be spoiled too if EVERYONE told you how amazing you are everywhere you go! I am mostly black with a little white patch on my chest. I have mesmerizing dark hazel eyes and like my Shepherd mommy my ears are acting like they want to stand up. I love children and am respectful of my older foster siblings. They are teaching me and my sister Ashley the ropes and we are fast learners. We spend time in the crate each day and after some puppy protests, I settle in very well. True to my Shepherd heritage I am alert, smart, curious and expressive. I am no couch potato and am energized by exciting adventures. So if you like to play, walk, and get lots of kisses I am the puppy for you. I look forward to meeting you soon. Bon Voyage!
Allow me to introduce myself, I am Ashley one of Lola's amazing puppies. I have the distinction of being one of the brindle, hazel eyed beauties. I am on the small side, but what I lack in size I make up in sweetness. My foster mommy tells me all the time how special I am and I am starting to believe her. I was a little shy at first but once I realized how much the world had to offer, l was all in. I have meet all types of people in my neighborhood and recently spent time with some time with young children. They were a ton of fun and gave me lots of hugs and kisses because I am so gentle and respectful. I am a crate champion and will even go in when the door is open to get a quick nap. My nickname is Snuggles because I can curl up with the best of them. I need to find an active, peacefully home because unlike my sister I do not like too much drama. I am a calm but playful puppy and I respond well to correction. I am looking forward to finding a home to call my own. I may not look like a traditional Shepherd but I am smart and so sweet natured that my foster mommy thinks I could be a therapy dog one day. Take a chance on me and you will not be disappointed. I will wait to hear from you but don't take too long, my best days are ahead.
Hello everyone! My name is Lolita, and I am one of Lola’s little puppies. I’m a beautiful, 8 week-old, German shepherd mix who lives with my sister, Esmeralda. We love to romp around together and play together. Sometimes, I even share my toys with her. I’m a curious, independent puppy who’s really good at entertaining myself. When my toys are stuck under furniture, I’m smart enough to sniff around for another way to work it free. But I also love to wander off on my own, and sometimes my curiosity gets me in trouble. I’d love to go to a loving home with a big yard for me to play in. I’m working really hard on being potty trained, and I sleep through the night in my crate with my sister. You should watch me wiggle while I have crazy puppy dreams! My foster family thinks I have the potential to learn cool tricks because I already respond to commands like “come” and “sit”. I have a lot of energy and even more love! I hope there’s a family out there that will love me too!
Hello! My name is Esmeralda, but everyone calls me Ezzie. I’m one of Lola’s puppies: an 8 week-old, German shepherd mix, and I live with my sister Lolita. I may be smaller than her, but I sure am scrappy. I’m fast, fun, and playful. I love to play with my older foster-brother, a 14-month GSD named Hadi, and boy can I stand my ground. Yesterday I even took out a mouthful of his tail! Oops! We’re still good friends though. When I’ve been playing hard for a while and it’s time to take a nap, I turn into a cuddle monster. I love curling up next to my sister or a human friend while sleeping. If I don’t feel safe next to a warm body, sometimes I cry out for a while, but I eventually fall asleep. I’m working very hard with my sister at potty training, and I sleep through the night, but sometimes I wake up a few times for a few minutes and cry. I’m so much fun and would be a great match for a home with kids. It would be wonderful to find a loving family with enough space or access to the outdoors for me to play!
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!
Kahr - Adoption Pending
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.
