Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: Very High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    PLEASE text 586-770-0744 for more info: Kaiser is an 11 month old, extremely high work-drive GSD. He has an of energy and finds the most enjoyment in performing some type of work (herding, tracking, obedience work, etc). Also, Kaiser is very dominant dog - who requires a strong willed, knowledgeable, alpha leader. He's been through 3 series of obedience classes and goes to doggy-day care. He's very well socialized to other dogs, however, not so much to people/strangers. MUST READ: Kaiser can be a bit aggressive around strangers that he feels threatened by. He is protective and if anyone gets too close to 'his pack' he can react. I ... (Read More)want to find him a owner who is just a better fit than I can provide him. We're looking for someone with a lot of time to spend with him, has experience with working breed dogs and mild tempered dogs, and someone who will love him. Additionally, he should go to a home that doesn't have small children, as he's never been around kids before, and also a home without cats. (Less)

Animal ID: 16-04-13-00616Mason (male)

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: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Vaccinations Current, Hip Dysplasia, Fearful/Anxious 

    Gypsy is an aging beautiful German Shepard mix. She comes from a loving home with two young children and a small lab mix sister dog. She is very loving and prefers the comfort of being around her humans most of the time. Gypsy has some unknown allergy issues that causes her to itch areas on her face around her eyes. Her hair will grow back when her allergic reactions are in check. Gypsy enjoys walks with her humans and sister dog, but running tends to cause her to limp as she is getting older. Stairs are also becoming more of a challenge for her. We love Gypsy so much and hate to see her go, but we want her to be happy and well taken care ... (Read More)of. Her health issues are becoming more demanding as she ages and our young family is straining to give her the attention she so desperately needs and deserves. I have no doubt Gypsy can provide your family with the unconditional love that we have grown so fond of. It is with broken hearts that we as a family are even posting this request If you are looking for a truly loyal dog, filled with love and compassion look no further. (Less)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Arthritis 

    Stanley is about 10 years old but has a lot of life left in him. He has endured a lot but still adores people and is very sweet. He wants nothing more than to be near people as often as he can. He enjoys short walks in the neighborhood and sniffing around the yard. He is crate trained and house trained and does well in the car as well. Stanley had some skin issues and related hair loss but the vet is confident it will grow back. He has some weakness in his back end but is slowly building up strength. Stairs are difficult for him. Stanley would be happiest in a quieter home as an only dog or with a nonaggressive female. He does have food ... (Read More)aggression with other dogs but not at all with humans.

Rescue Me ID: 16-03-10-00147BISCUIT (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed 

    Biscuit is a very loving, devoted sweetheart of a dog. She has had a rough past but has adjusted well in the past couple of years that we've had her. She is a chow-shepherd mix, around 4-5 years old, and is fully grown. We keep her hair short to cut down on shedding because her fur can get thick. She is very active- she absolutely loves to go for walks and to play with her ball outside, but only if you play with her! She enjoys being outside but would much rather be with you wherever you are, whether you are inside or out. She knows not to get on the furniture, but loves to snuggle if you allow her to. She requires a lot of attention but ... (Read More)respects boundaries when you set them. She was crate trained at one point with her foster parents and though we never utilized it I wish we would have because I think she likes the feeling of safety they provide. She loves all adults that she comes into contact with, but shouldn't be around kids or smaller pets. She can be great with other dogs once she gets to know them but can also be very aggressive towards them if she feels threatened (She was fostered with other dogs; the aggression didn't start until she came to live with us but we don't know why). She also has a small digging problem and loves to bury her bones. She has been through the Sit Means Sit training program and responded well to it, especially while on walks. Biscuit is a really great dog and we love her dearly but our babies will be on the move soon and we are worried she might react poorly to them. We also no longer feel we have the time to give her that she deserves. We want to see her go to a great home where she will get the love, attention and exercise she deserves. We are even willing to do a trial period and will take her back if it doesn't work out with you.*courtesy post* (Less)

Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament

    Mae is a sweet and affectionate companion. She is playful, and will sit on command. Mae is 2 years old, so she has knocked things over, and can get into mischief, if left unattended. I am willing to donate a crate, and other supplies that I bought her. I currently have a shih tzu, and travel alot, so financially, I can no longer keep her.

Rescue Me ID: 15-10-16-00132Nema (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    LOCATION: E.LANSING MI As time has went on, Nema's true personality has really shown through. Where to start... Well her personality and temperament is DEFINITELY more GSD than Husky. For that reason she is only going to an experienced GSD family. She has some major guarding/protective tendencies and if not placed in the right home that could be very bad for her. Her natural protectiveness has caused her to lash out and defend without much warning. She has gone to a bootcamp with a wonderful trainer who specializes in GSD's and she is doing AMAZING working on her training with her foster mom. She is learning to look to her handler for ... (Read More)direction rather than taking matters into her own hands. In a few short weeks she has come so far. Continued training will be require for any potential adopters. Nema will also need a home that does NOT have small children; while I think that should would be naturally protective of her family, I'd rather not have children so young that don't understand her threshold. She has some pretty severe separation anxiety. She had caused massive amounts of damage to her snout trying to escape her crate; she had destroyed many so we have her in a heavy duty steel crate that seems to be doing the trick. She is VERY loyal to those she knows; to a fault. She gets along with the other dogs in the home (for the most part; if someone starts something she will NOT back down though) She lives with cats, and although she likes to chase them on occasion she listens amazing well and will sleep and snuggle with them too. TO BE CLEAR: We have never seen her be aggressive; most of her behaviors are either protective or defensive in nature. If interested you can also purchase her crate at the cost we paid $170. It's one of the indestructible crates. She gets along great with the other dogs at the foster home; but an overbearing or bully personality would be a challenge. Cats, well her foster mom has cats and while she would like to chase them she listens well and cuddles with them often. Application, Home visit, and contract apply $300 adoption fee.

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Kenzo is currently being boarded due to losing his foster home. He was adopted out as a pup, rehomed due to divorce a few years later and then his owner passed away after a couple of years. He was placed in foster upon his return but lost that foster due to no reason of his. He is currently breaking out of the kennels where he is at because he is not getting enough excercise. He is just not happy and he is going to end up hurting himself. It is URGENT he find a home (foster or forever) that knows his breed. He doesn't have time left to stay where he is. Kenzo is about 6 years old and requires a fenced yard. He is a Great dog!

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 that is why I MUST go to an experienced adopter. I am approximately 3.5 years old. I am a German shepherd/husky mix. I do well with most dogs, especially neutered dogs, but kitties and me do not mix. Blame that on ... (Read More)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. Kids I probably should not be placed with. I ride wonderful 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! Max (foster home would be considered!!) (Less)
