German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive

    Mona is a purebred Belgian Shepherd (there isn't an option for that breed so I put German Shepherd/Dutch Shepherd). Mona is a well trained dog, but is not good around young children. She would be a great addition to a family with older children, couple or single person. She loves to play, walk and run.

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Rusty has been looking for his forever home for a long time. He is a good boy but because of the abuse he suffered from his previous owner before being rescued by us, he doesn't like children, small animals, and is leery of adults at first. We have reached out to a trainer and Rusty has been evaluated and can be worked with to get him ready for his forever home. It has to be out there some where. Please consider adopting Rusty once all of his training is completed. He is almost 4 years old and would really love to have a family of his own. His adoption fee is $300.00. He will be trained in California but having him transported to you is free ... (Read More)through Kindred Hearts transport. Rusty's adoption fee is $300.00. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-06-22-00476Kirsa (female)

German Shepherd    Age: Adult

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

    Loving, energetic dog but has dog aggression. Hard to take out into public for fear of encountering another dog. Would need to be a single dog home and have a yard with a fence unless she is walked every day. Does not chew. Barks/growls at strangers on or around property, but is very friendly to people invited into the home. Has never bitten anyone or shown any aggression toward children. Reason for re-homing: About to have second child and just don't have time for training, space inside the house, or fenced-in yard that she needs in order to exert her high energy levels and be truly happy. She just needs some time and commitment from a ... (Read More)loving family. (Less)

Animal ID: 25201141Skye (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Arthritis, Obese 

    Skye is a beautiful 11 year old extra large German Shepherd mix (possibly Anatolian) who found herself in the Shelter when her lifelong owner became very ill. She is currently being fostered in the Portland, Maine area. Skye is excellent with friendly dogs outside the home, but inside the house, she prefers to be the one who gets most of the attention from her humans, as well as the most comfortable bed. She does not seem to be food or toy aggressive, however. She is an excellent guard dog,and will alert if she sees someone near the house or if anyone knocks on the door, but she is friendly to any visitors who enter the house, child ... (Read More)and adult alike. Although she is older, and overweight, she has plenty of energy, and enjoys going for walks and rides, and is pretty much up for any adventure you can provide her. She does not require a crate when left alone, but because she becomes so devoted to her people, a home where she is not left for long periods of time would be best. She will get into the bathroom trash if she becomes anxious, but otherwise, has never been destructive. Her mobility is excellent for a dog of her age and size, but she most likely has some arthritis, and becomes distressed if you attempt to brush her legs or trim her nails. Overall, Skye is the ideal German Shepherd and would love to find a home to spend the remainder of her years in comfort, surrounded by love. (Less)

German Shepherds are very protective, but not hostile; they make great guard dogs and wonderful companions. German Shepherds should be well socialized early in life.
