Rescue Me ID: 16-05-30-00399Bella (female)

German Shepherd    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Our sweet pooch...we hate to get rid of her. We have had her since she was 6 weeks old. Bella loves people (though she is not fond of very small kids) and she loves other dogs. She has a blankie she loves to carry around and snuggle and loves to eat paper towels out of the garbage can. Our family just doesn't have time to give Bella the attention that she deserves and we would like to find her a loving home with a family who has the time to dedicate to her and give her the attention she deserves.

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-25-00485Zora (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    My son had Zora, 2.5 yo, since she was a puppy. He has been unable to take her with him to Alaska, where he works. Unfortunately, as much as I love this beautiful dog, she does not fit in with my household. Zora tries to play with my tiny, fragile, elderly dogs--not understanding she is too aggressive. Mother was a multi-generation pure bred black shepherd, father was a Dutch Shepherd mix. She is spayed and up to date on shots. She is very affectionate and eager to please. She loves some dogs but not others so would probably be best as only dog. She does well with older kids but is too energetic for little ones. She loves to play ball and ... (Read More)frisbee, run, swim, loves snow, and going for adventures in the woods. She is intelligent and is a great problem solver. She is highly trainable but my son treated her more as an adventure buddy rather than helping her learn to be a good citizen. Someone who is active and can keep her well-exercised would be perfect. She is housebroken, knows commands--cage, sit, down, shake, find it, drop it, leave it, stay, and out. She has a large cage, leash, halter, Gentle Leader, mesh muzzle, some toys and a bag of her grain free food. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-22-00348Pharoah (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    ***EDIT*** Before we get another 'let me get this straight you don't want him because his ears don't stand up?' Post...that's not why. Pharoah is high energy and can be very destructive. He digs all the time, tears up alot of things in the house. But while we understand he is high energy and needs to be walked, my wife's bad knees and my 14 hour a day work schedule don't allow for it. He is trained for sit, lay down, speak, housebroken, shake and few others. But we missed the professional training window due to his age. He will pee on the floor when excited and pulls quite badly on a leash also. We were told when we bought this dog that ... (Read More)he was a purebred....he is now 8 months old and while his ears will stand, they don't stand freely all the time. He is super smart, but requires alot of attention. He LOVES kids, and would be perfect in a family home enviroment. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-22-00063Wolf (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Don't be scared off by his name. They say dogs evolve into what their name means. So we hope that Wolf grows into a stronger, more confident dog as he's had a rough start to life. He and his three siblings were surrendered to a very high kill shelter in Texas. His two lab sisters were rescued and he was left alone, petrified and hiding in his kennel with his shepherd mix brother. We tagged them both but then, tragedy struck. Wolf's brother died during surgery (the shelter requires they be altered before leaving). Wolf was now all alone in this big, scary world. He was transported ASAP to me here in Michigan, where I have spent the past four ... (Read More)months teaching him all about life outside a small, San Antonio back yard. He had never been inside a house before, even the noise from the refrigerator scared him. It became obvious that Wolf was much more comfortable outside but, due to his skiddish and fearful nature, he needs a fenced yard and to live inside with his new family. He will bond more better, more quickly, and his chances of getting lost will be drastically reduced. After having Wolf for a couple months, I introduced him to some new dogs and he really gets along well and enjoys playing with them. I think he misses his family so much and that brings back good memories for him. He is the most happiest I've ever seen him when he has a playmate to run and play, and romp in the yard with. Wolf is one of the most submissive dogs I have ever met, with people and other animals. He seems to be the type of dog who would allow small children to pull on his ears and bite his tail without recourse (not that we recommend allowing children to do that of course but, Wolf seems to have the temperament to put up with it!). Wolf's previous owner wasn't too nice to him. It appears that his ear flaps were literally CUT short with a dull pair of scissors or knife, because the edges are rough and puffy. Although they are all healed and don't appear to bother him at all, I'm sure it was extremely painful when it happened. Despite being so afraid, Wolf is a sweet, smart, laid back gentlemen with extremely good house manners. He is crate trained, comes when called, respects fences, and walks well on a leash. If you would like to consider adding Wolf to your family and provide him a forever and better life than before, please contact me for more information. NO TEXT MESSAGES PLEASE. (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    My name is Shadow and I am a 2-3 year old male German Shepard mix. I weigh about 60 pounds. I am a very hyper boy at this stage of my life; all I focus on is playing with my ball. I love playing ball. I will play all by myself or better yet, I LOVE it when someone throws me the ball and I run very fast and sometimes catch it in my mouth. I will need an active family who will help me burn off energy. Small children are probably not the best with me as when I am focused on my ball I don't see anything else. I would love to have myself a forever home. If I sound like just the family member for you, please apply at www.rpm.org. I am ...

I'm neutered and UTD on all my vaccines, HW, FT, and have a microchip of my own. RPSM recommends children 10 years and older. I will require a fenced in yard, either physical or underground.

German Shepherd    Age: Puppy

Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Dash is a 16 month old German Shepard with lots of energy! He has had some puppy classes but needs more work on socialization. We love him dearly but due to work he spends too much time alone. He is good with kids, but due to his size is a bit much for little ones. He barks a lot around strangers but has never been aggressive toward anyone. I feel he would do best in a home that has time to spend playing with him and socializing him. He does behave better for males than females. He is fully potty trained and crate trained.

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    We are looking for a good home for our 2 year old GERMAN SHEPHERD mix 'MASON'. It is breaking our hearts to re-home him as he is such a sweet boy, but he is active, highly intelligent and simply needs a house with more activity. I am a single mom with 2 children (ages 10 and 13) and he needs to be in a home where more attention is paid to him. He gets along great with all children, dogs, and cats. ( he LOVES to play with other dogs of all kinds) Mason would do well with a male owner since he seems to respond better to men. He has most of his basic obedience down (come, sit, stay) and he is house trained. The issue we have with MASON is ... (Read More)that after we leave for school/work he tends to run through the subdivision. We have tried many things to deter this, but he is able to open doors of nearly any type and he jumps our wooden 4 ft. fence. Mason simply needs a home with a strong/firm adult for obedience and he needs a home where he is able to get more attention than simply a few hours in the evening. (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hello there! My name is Max. I have a bit of a sad story. My mommy had to give me up because I nipped at someone and bit another. It wasn't a bad bite but enough for mommy to say she was going to have to put me down. One of her friends heard about this and contacted this rescue asking for help. They thankfully saved my life. They accepted me into their program. I am a great boy once I get to know someone. I am leery of new people, especially men, but once I get to know and trust them, I'm fine. I am approximately 3.5 years old. I am a German shepherd/husky mix. I do well with most dogs but small dogs and kitties and me do not mix. Blame ... (Read More)that on the husky side of me! I am playful and love to sit and cuddle. I know how to sit, lay down, shake, stay....so as you can see I am very very smart. When you say "go home", I know exactly what to do. That means go into my kennel. I always like to take one of my toys from my kennel with me when I go outside. I should probably be placed in a home with kids 15 years or older only. I need a stable home with mature owners. I ride wonderfully in the car and get very excited for car rides. I love to go for walks and walk wonderful on the leash. I should go to a home with a 6 foot high fenced in yard. I am a bigger boy who likes to roam and explore. So if you are experienced with a dog like me and can work on more training with me then I would LOVE to meet you! Love always, Max. (a foster home would be considered!!) (Less)
