Adoption Pending DogsAbigail

These dogs are in Foster-to-Adopt homes. This gives pros pective adopters 30 days to foster the dog in their own home before finalizing the adoption. We feel that a 30 day trial period is a good start to know whether the dog will be happy in that household and whether the household will be happy with the dog! Dogs will often act more cautiously for the first 2 weeks, so a full month of dealing with the dog during your regular routine is very important.

If you are interested in becoming a regular foster home or in our Foster-to-Adopt program, please read our Fostering Agreement. We actively encourage Foster-To-Adopt!

Vaughn Head
More

Adoption Pending!

Vaughn

Vaughn is an 18 month old black and tan who weighs in at about 80 lbs. He came to us from a local shelter as an unclaimed stray so nothing is known about his background. While his past life is a mystery, it does appear that someone began working with him - he has a good understanding of basic commands like sit, down, and shake. He uses a doggie door to go outside and appears housebroken. He is living in a foster home with 4 other German Shepherds and can usually be found trying to initiate play with the other dogs. He has been around small dogs and got along well, but due to his large size and playful demeanor, he would love a home with another large breed dog to play with.

He prefers to sleep on a dog bed next to his human, but he will sleep quietly in the crate at night (after a few initial protest whimpers) if he is the same room as his human.

This is a Level 2 Dog!

Waylon Head
More

Adoption Pending!

Waylon

Waylon is a large handsome black and tan male weighing in at about 107 lbs. He is about 5-6 years old. He was an unclaimed stray from a local shelter so nothing is known about his background.

Waylon has gotten along with the large and small dogs he has met. He is generally content to hang with them, but on occasion will try to play. Given the choice, he would rather be with his people!

Waylon appears to be housebroken, rides nicely in the car, and is crate trained.

This is a Level 2 Dog!

The benefits of a German Shepherd—loyalty, protectiveness and eagerness, to name a few—come from careful obedience training and authority. Everyone in the household must be prepared to show “authority” and earn the dog’s respect with a firm but loving touch. They do not respond to negativity or anger. Once achieved, this respect may need to be earned again and again.
