Rescue Me ID: 16-05-21-00320ReBar (male)

German Shepherd    Age: Adult

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

    Hi everyone! My name is ReBar and I am 7 years old but have way more energy and personality than any 7 year old dog you've ever met! I weigh 80lbs and am a big ball of cheer! I am a sweet, intelligent boy with lots of love to give. I would love a home with a family that can spend a lot of time with me and spoil me. Little kids probably aren't the best just because I am so big and have a good amount of energy. A lot of activity with room to run and play would be awesome! My foster mom lets me run out on her property because I do really well with boundaries and have good recall - so long as I get lots of loving! Once I get near her, I like a ... (Read More)good game of chase. She'll chase me and then I'll let her catch me and we wrestle! She has a big fenced in yard too. I like to dig up a little spot for me to lay in the cool dirt. Mom says I'm a good helper in the garden too, hehe! I love to play and enjoy my toys but tear them up pretty easily - woops! I don't mind sharing my toys with my foster brother either, but he's not quick enough to catch me! My foster home has cats in it too and OH BOY do I like cats! I'll chase after them but I can't ever seem to catch them. Not sure what I would do if I got to one so I'll need a home without cats. I wouldn't mind a home with another dog but would do just fine as an only dog so long as you shower me with attention! When mom leaves for the day she puts me in my crate and I doing really well in there. She has even started leaving me out in the house and I've done really well so far! She also lets me sleep with her at night which I love! I know all the basic commands and will happily do them for praise and treats. I don't walk the best on a leash though - I pull and I'm super strong!! Car rides are fun for me and I prefer to sit next to my human. I love getting some fresh air on my face ? I takes some time for me to warm up and trust people so patience in the beginning will be key. Once I realize you are a constant in my life and how much you love me it's all good from there! I like giving my humans hugs and kisses. I am not a fan of thunderstorms so hugs and kisses through this is helpful. A note from my foster mom: ReBar is a wonderful GSD! The lucky individual or family who adopts him will be getting a very special addition to their life. He is so full of life and so eager to please and belong. He has been looking for love in all the wrong places. Hopefully his next love and family will be his last!

All GSDRI's dogs are adopted as indoor house pets. No permanent outside runs or tie outs are allowed. A fence is strongly encouraged.

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-05-00294Blade (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    Blade is a five month old German Shepherd mix (we don't know what he is mixed with). He was adopted in March and was returned because he played too rough with the cat and it was causing too much anxiety in the family. We are glad he was returned to us so we could find him a new home. He is doing excellent on his housebreaking and is learning basic commands. He loves, loves,loves his toys. He is neutered, current on his shots and is micro-chipped. He just needs a home that can deal with his puppy antics.

Rescue Me ID: 16-03-03-00153Zeus (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hi there, my name is Zeus (or as my foster dad likes to call me, Zeusy) and I'm a 3 year old German Shepherd mix. I am super awesome and love my humans! I am an 85lb ball of love and playfulness so have a lot of energy to burn. But I love cuddle time with my humans too! I LOVE attention! I am super fun around other dogs but can play a little ruff! I would love to have a confident doggy sibling to play with me! I love balls and toys. Not too sure how I do around cats so mayyyybe not a great idea :) I am great around kids and oh so sweet. I do have some issues being outside of my comfort zone. New places and people don't always scratch me ... (Read More)the right way! My foster dad is working to figure out exactly what I'm thinking. Maybe it's vigilance he says?!?! I have had some basic obedience so know all the good stuff like sit, shake, lay, stay, and have good recall outside. I do really well in my crate but can be left out in the house without supervision too. Even though I have a lot of energy, I'm not a jumper, buuuttt I pull on the leash because I'm so darn excited!! I also do really well in the car. So, did you get all that?! Basically I just want all the love I can get! Will you be my constant companion?!?!

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 is what we have named him. He came in as a stray and no one ever claimed him. He us a Shepherd Mix and about a year old. We can tell you he has lots of energy and needs an owner who will work with him to get him through the wild and crazy stage. He has done very good with his housebreaking within the confines of the shelter. He will be a great dog in a home where he can get plenty of exercise and attention. He is good with other dogs he just likes to play rough. He has a very high prey drive so we would not recommend him in a home with small dogs and no cats. He would be good with older kids but has way too much puppy energy for ... (Read More)young children. (Less)
