Rescue Me ID: 17-05-13-00149Zooey (female)

German Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Zooey is a 2 1/2 year old German Shepherd, Black, predominantly, with tan feet. She is loving to me, and likes walks, short or long. She likes to ride in the car. However she suffers from separation anxiety, and anxiety in general. Because of this she always barks, and I have been asked to leave my apartment. I cannot find another place that takes her size. Her anxiety also causes her to bark and lunge at other dogs and sometimes humans, but if she reaches them, she either lies down, or more frequently runs away and hides behind me. She is fearful and anxious this way. She varies between trusting kids and barking at them, much the same as ... (Read More)with adults. Inside the house she is fearful, hiding in the far corner if a visitor is there, but with dogs in the house she is loving. She is spayed. Vaccination and spaying records can be provided. Note: She responds to commands for sit and silence, even when agitated, most of the time. She has a congenital kink in her tail, not a break, but an L-shaped vertebrae that causes her tail to wag in two different directions at once. She like attention. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-10-00009Ranger (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    I am posting Ranger looking for his new home along with his owner whom unfortunately just doesn't have the time to dedicate to such a high energy and intelligent breed. Please only inquire on him only if you think you can meet all of his needs, are willing to speak with us over the phone and allow a home visit with him to meet your family in person and be sure he is the right fit for you. Ranger is a fun loving guy, bursting with energy looking for an active family to spend his days with. He is 2 years old and weighs about 45lbs. He is a happy guy who is true to his breed and definitely needs someone that provide him with not only physical ... (Read More)exercise but plenty of mental stimulation also. He's an over the top smarty pants and can bore easily just chasing a ball around the yard. He loves going for runs, hiking and paying with some of his canine friends. We say some because he can particular about who he wants to play with. Ranger has not done well with overly assertive or 'dominant' players. He can get intimated easily by other dogs so would do best a more even tempered but still up to play four legged friend. He does also currently live with two cats whom he pays no attention to. We would recommend that Ranger lives only with older children really due to his energy and strength and that he does need a dog savvy owner. He can be quite the trickster! He knows all of his basic commands such as sit, down, stay, come, leave-it, and roll over. Walks great on a leash and is crate trained and housebroken. Ranger is neutered and micro-chipped but will need to be brought up to date on vaccinations. Re-homing fee is negotiable to the right home. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-03-22-00267Hayden (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Name: Hayden Sex: Male Breed: Boxer/Shepherd Mix Age: 3 yrs old Weight: 50 lbs Hello! My name is Hayden and I am a very energetic boy. (I am also super-cute, but I'm sure you can see that from my pictures.) I love to run, go for walks, play tug-of- war and play fetch. Basically, I'm up for anything fun. But I also really enjoy a good snuggle on the couch with my foster dad. I like to get my belly rubbed, but I need to get to know you pretty well first. I am pretty smart, too; I know some very cool commands like sit, paw, down and come. I am house trained and crate trained. I love eating treats, by the way. They help me learn, plus they ... (Read More)are yummy. There are a few things I don't like too much, such as birds and squirrels. I find them annoying or maybe just exciting, and I bark at them and want to chase them. I also bark at other dogs; I will need to continue my training so I learn not to do that. I also need to live without other dogs or other pets, so I can get all the attention from my family without having to share. I will need a family who has time to spend with me and help me continue to learn good manners. I can't wait until they find me'|we are going to have such fun together!
