Rescue Me ID: 17-06-11-00306Perla (female)

German Shepherd    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Pearla, A White German Shepherd is a sweetheart and her loyalty is second-to-none. So you have a better understanding why we have to find Pearla a new family, here's the reason: She's unable to live with other animals. I rescued Pearla when she was 9 months old. We fell in love with her the minute we met. She lived with me, my wife and 2 boys for 2 years. A divorce separated myself and Pearla from the rest of the family and for 6 years, for all those years it's been Pearla and me. I just recently purchased a home with my girlfriend and her 3 Shar Peis. We quickly found out the Pearla is not willing to share her home with other animals. ... (Read More)Pearla is great with my 2 boys and, at the time we got her my youngest was 10. She's great with other people once you introduce her. A quick smell and tell her 'nice nice'..She's good. Truly, Pearla is an absolute love with people, but she is animal aggressive and has bitten other dogs. As much as it hurts me to let her go, I have to do what's right for Pearla. She has so much to give, it's not fair to her to keep her isolated from the rest of the house, or contained on a long-term basis, just as it wouldn't be for the other dogs who shared her home. Pearla knows her commands once you establish Alpha with her. That's the key. When walking on a leash with her. 1. A firm Pearla Heal she'll start to walk'|A firm, Pearla Halt, she'll stop and sit next to you. Tell her heal again and she'll start to walk again. 2. Pearla knows Stay and Down'|in most cases just but using hand signals other times you'll have to firmly tell her and use hand signals 3. Kisses'|tell her kisses and she'll lick your hand. When she's in the mood though. : ) And if you've never seen a Shepherd give a Submissive Smile, this will be one of the best experiences. 4. Leave it! If she's barking at a passerby or another dog when you're walking, or at home, A firm leave it, re-directs her. When you're walking and her head drops and fixates, eyes lock on something, Squirrel for example..tell her Leave it and re-direct. 5. Pearla loves to go for walks so she can release some energy. If her pace is fast its because she's excited. Tell her Pearla Slooow and slow your pace. 6. Release... If she has a ball a bone or whatever'| a Firm.. Pearla Release, and she'll drop whatever's in her mouth. Most of the time : ) 7. Pearla is working a bread loved her training'| something I suggest, and will help with bonding. She loves being in the yard. She has had a regular fence, and most recently a electric fence. 8. '4health' dog food grain-free is what she eats..If that can't be found near your home, the Blue Grain-Free Chicken is her favorite'| If a food change happens you must mix equal parts until you transfer over. She eats between 3 and 4 cups a day'| half in the am the other half at dinner. If she wasn't very active that day she might only eat once '|She love treats!!! The more natural, the better. Cheap treats will not settle well.. 9. Pearla has thyroid meds that she takes twice a day..breakfast and before bed.. Not a big deal and common for her breed. I use pill pockets..cheese or peanut butter works too'| 10. She is very curious, whether working in the house or the garage, she's by your side wondering what you're doing. 11. If there's room she'll sleep in bed with you..If not, she'll find her spot in your room'| (Less)

Animal ID: Rex  (male)

German Shepherd    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello there! My name is Rex and I am a purebred, AKC registered 8-year-old German Shepherd. It is unfortunate that I have come to this part in my life and I must part ways with my human. He had to move but most places he found only allowed my small dogs or no pets at all. Ugh. I hate those stupid rules. Let me start by telling the story when I first met my human. I was just 8 weeks old. I was visited by my human alongside my litter mates. I was happy and enjoying play time with them. When suddenly I was called by him. I immediately turned around and greeted him. I then went back to playing. Then he called again. That's when I knew I had to ... (Read More)go home with him. He thought he picked me from everyone else but in reality, it was me that decided to go with him. Throughout my 8 years (I just turned 8 on April 30) of being with my human, I have enjoyed the time I spent with him. He would take me camping, the lake, to work, long car rides, long walks and to visit his human friends. I love making new friends with both humans and other canines. I like structure and routine. That is how I learned my basic manners. I'd like to say that I'm trilingual as I know a few different commands in three languages. Though, I can still improve on my German and Spanish commands. I understand English best. My human thought he could pronounce German words well enough for me to understand but I let it slide. Hehe.I also know some sign language. I understand: - Sit (sitzen) (sientate) - down (platz) (bajo) - no (nein) - paw (mano) - eat (come) - water (agua) - speak - quiet - up / up with hands on chest - eat (come) - crate - go to sleep / go to bed - potty, hurry potty - back - off - leave it (deja) - drop it - come (ven) - inside - here I can use some repetitive training with positive reinforcement to stay keen with the commands. Please, oh please use shredded cheddar as a treat. Yum! Also, I can always learn new things just be patient and consistent and we'll find ourselves on the same page sooner than you think. While my human is working, I usually spend my time lounging around the house. Although I have the place to myself I always respect my home. I do not make messes or have accidents in the house and will wait patiently for my humans' return. Well, I could keep going on and on but I'll wrap it up here so you can stop reading this and head over to meet me! I'll be your best friend and I will enjoy going anywhere with you, just spending time with you will make me happiest. Please, let's start a new journey together I am anxious to meet my new family! I am currently living in a foster home in Chicago. Please email palsplace1@homtail.com to request an adoption application and to set up a time to meet me! My adoption donation to the rescue is $275. This helps to cover any medical expenses during my time with the rescue and helps them rescue other dogs in need like myself I've just had a check-up, all of my vaccines and a heartworm and fecal test.

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-13-00512Rosa (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    **ROSA HAS BEEN STUCK IN BOARDING FOR *YEARS* AND NEEDS A FOSTER OR ADOPTER** Sweet Rosa was boarded many years ago by her truck driver owner. Eventually her owner just stopped coming back for her and she too, became a permanent fixture at the facility. She has been cared for but boarding is meant to be temporary...this is no life for any dog. She is missing her buddy Leo terribly and deserves so much more. Rosa is estimated to be around 8 years old. Appears to be a german shep mix and is on the smaller side at approx 45 pounds. She is very sweet, laid back and low energy. She will make a very easy pet for someone. Just likes to hang out ... (Read More)quietly and take in the scenery. We tested her today with a larger male & female, she pretty much wanted to avoid them but when they finally met she did grumble a bit. We would like her to go to a dog-free home for now, just so she has calm space to decompress in. She showed no interest in cats that were out in office area when Rosa walked thru. Our wish for Rosa is to find a real home where she can lay on a soft bed or blanket and rest her old bones for the rest of her days. Her rear legs seem a bit stiff, which I am sure is from years of laying on the hard kennel floors. We are planning to have her vetted and better assess her health and if she has any medical needs. Also will be getting her up-to-date on her shots. Please share this sweet ol'gal for us and help her find the wonderful 2nd chance like her bestfriend Leo did. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-03-17-00275Sheena (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Very Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Arthritis, Blind, Malnourished 

    Sheena is a 15-year-old, very frail and thin, female black and white shepherd-mix looking for a loving guardian as a hospice situation. This senior lady was dropped off at Chicago Animal Control with a younger Dachshund sibling. They were separated when a rescue took the Dachshund but not the senior shepherd. Luckily Sheena was taken in by the Famous Fido Rescue. She has proven to be just fine with other dogs as well as cats. Poor Sheena has had two bouts of pancreatitis since she's arrived in rescue. Rescue staff and volunteers have nursed her back from each illness and now she eats mostly boiled chicken and rice, although she also loves ... (Read More)cheese. Her arthritis slows her down. She is visually impaired and easily startled so she may bite if surprised or frightened, so she's best in a home with tolerant dog-lovers without children.
