Animal ID: 16-07-07-00020Suzy (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Suzy was saved AT THE VERY LAST MINUTE from death at a high kill, over populated shelter. She is calm and sweet and loves ALL humans. She is about 60lbs and just wants to spend the rest of her years being a member of a family. She rode in the van for 3 days with 6 teenagers and she was in heaven. She sits with me outside and loves to put her head on my lap--gratefully loving me. The day this picture was taken she was just hanging on my front porch enjoying the day. We do not know of any particular health issues with Suzy right now. She seems happy and healthy. She did have a hysterectomy 2 months ago and a few masses removed from her ... (Read More)mammaries. All benign. However, given her age (9-11?) all we can ask is for LOVE for her--no matter how many years she has left. Rescue is willing to discuss keeping up with vet bills for the remainder of her life if wonderful home can be found that will provide all the love and kindness Suzy deserves. Look at those eyes!! She loves walks and car rides too :) (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-28-00604Thor (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet THOR, a strikingly handsome one year old Coonhound/German Shepard mix! He is smart and loving. An ideal home for this big guy would be someone wanting a great walking or jogging partner. Maybe a person who is looking for a bunny chaser in their garden! He has a very strong prey drive and would love a hunting partner. He will need someone who will respect thy neighbor if they have kitties, because he is not a fan, and can jump a 4 ft fence. He is also an awesome watch dog! He would be better with older kids, and would enjoy someone willing to go for long walks! Thor is fixed, heartworm negative, vaccinated, chipped, and only $100 for ...

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-28-00125Max (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi everyone, my name is Max! I am a 2 ½ year old German Shepherd and probably some sort of Hound mix. I'm an active boy with lots of energy to burn so I need a family that will give me a lot of exercise. I'm cool with car rides so maybe you can take me to the park for a run! I like to play really RUFF with my doggy friends so I would do best in a home with other young, high energy dogs that don't mind my style of play. (I'd be ok as an only dog too.) I get along well with the other dominant-neutral dogs that are my size in my foster home, however, I don't do well with small breeds. Annnddd I'm pretty reactive to cats so a home ... (Read More)without cats would be best, hehe! I weigh about 75lbs now but could stand to gain some additional weight so I might knock little kids over. I like balls, and if you tire me out enough, I will relax and cuddle up next to you. I LOVE snuggling and getting attention from my people. I know the basic commands but would like a family who could continue my training. I walk well on a leash with a little pull. I do pretty good in my crate but will make a fuss sometimes. I have some nervous energy which can be displayed when I'm in my crate. Because of this, I probably need to be crated during the day so that I don't get into anything while you are gone. Having other dogs around seems to help me stay a bit calmer though! Because I am such a tall guy and an excellent jumper, I will need a home with a secure 5-6 foot fence. I have been known to sneak under a chain link fence before so a wood fence or very secure chain link fence is super important! I tend to bark at noises outside like thunder, fireworks, etc. so hopefully your neighbors won't mind - woops! :) Do I sound like the beset fit ever for you?! Please visit www.gsdri.org to fill out an application, learn more about the adoption process and fees, and view other dogs available through the German Shepherd Dog Rescue of Iowa. All GSDRI's dogs are adopted as indoor house pets. No permanent outside runs or tie outs are allowed. A fence is strongly encouraged. Every dog is spayed/neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, and heartworm checked. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-10-00219Chloe (female)

German Shepherd    Age: Adult

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

    Hello, my name is Chloe. I'm 8 years old and weigh approximately 85lbs. I'm a very smart girl and absolutely love my people! My foster mom says I'm beautiful - can't you tell?! I was surrendered to GSDRI when my owner died :( I loved him very much and was very attached to him. I absolutely love to please and will easily become devoted to my new family. Because of this, I need to be the only pet in the house as I have been the only pet my entire life and tend to get jealous if other dogs are around. I also have a high prey drive so will likely not do well with cats. I'll take off after squirrels so I also need a fenced in yard. I do really ... (Read More)well with children though and love to play (especially with toys)! I know all the basic commands, crate well but have also been able to free roam with my old family. My foster mom is impressed that I don't bark when people come to the door - that's rare she says :) I do have Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI) which requires an enzyme supplement with my food. Please keep this in mind as I will need consistent care with my new family, My ideal home would have moderate coming and going/activity in the house. A family with mature children would be nice. A home where the love I give is returned.

Rescue Me ID: 16-03-02-00494Bailey (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Bailey has been in the shelter since the 1st of March. He originally came in as a stray with absolutely no manners whatsoever. The vet estimated him to be about a year old. Since then he has had lots of work put into him and is slowly learning manners. We believe he is a shepherd mix. The trainer has been working with him and he is amazingly smart - he just needed focus. He gets along with other dogs, can not be around cats, does well with children (just remember he is high energy). He is learning all of his basics like sit, stay, heel, etc. and doing very well at them. We know he is housebroken as far as being here at the kennel. ... (Read More)Bailey is an amazing boy who deserves an active and permanent home. A little bit of work and you will have an amazing lifelong companion. (Less)
