German Shepherd    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations, Aggressive 

    Chief is an 8 year old German Shephard with papers. He has recently become slightly agitated in regard to teen boys and adult males. He comes from a very complicated household and has been around small children his whole life. He has taken on a sort of alpha male position and keeps myself and my kids very protected but he is beginning to pose a threat to outsiders. We live in a very small town and the local police department has threatened to shoot him on site if he becomes loose as well as mandate me to have him put to sleep. Chief has always been a very happy dog and has never posed any threat to myself or my kids. He is just getting too ... (Read More)old to be around kids and my neighborhood is full of them. Please...

Health: Neutered, Abused/Neglected, Fearful/Anxious 

    Hi there! My name is Makita and I'm looking for my forever home! I am a 1 1/2 - 2 years old neutered male and ready to find my new family! I was rescued about 4 months ago and was placed in a foster home to help me get heathly and learn how to follow directions. I have learned so much from my foster family and am eager to please! I have lots of energy and love to play ball, run outside and go for car rides. I am tolerant with children and will gently take treats from their hands. I get along with other dogs however, I have a strong personality and am the alpha male. I am wary of strangers and am looking for a family who has experience with ... (Read More)my breed. It takes some time for me to warm up to new people and new environments. My family needs to have some patience with me and allow me time to adjust to their routine. Once I am comfortable I can show my family how loving, obediant and entertaining I can be. Please contact the Mesabi Humane Society at 218.741.7425 or Deanna Swenson at 218.404.3888 if interested in meeting me! (Less)

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults

    Looking for a good home for my sweet dog. She's been a wonderful dog but has some issues with allergies and ear infections. My wife and I have two small children at home and it's been a bit much to manage. She is a sweet dog and absolutely wonderful with our children and two cats. She is a big softy. She is 50% blind in one eye but has never been an issue for her. We rescued her when she was 14 weeks old. She is a bit timid and never aggressive. Any other questions please contact me.

German Shepherd    Age: Adult

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

    Hello, this is Blitz. He is a Czech breed German Shepherd who loves kids, cats and other dogs. To a fault. He gets excited and nips on occasion. He nipped a neighbor's dog and is now causing friction with the association/neighborhood. He has been a GREAT dog. He is housebroken, doesn't chew, loves to walk and run and play. It breaks our hearts to give him up, but I honestly believe that he is the victim of being 'a scary breed' and that's all. What he needs is a home with a lot of love and attention (He is kind of 'needy' lol) and a fenced yard in which to run and play. He would probably be best in a home where he is the only animal and can ... (Read More)absorb all of the attention. He turns 6 on May 5th. He will come with the remainder of his food, a large plastic travel kennel, a leash and chain collar. Two conditions for adoption- A $150 re-homing fee to ensure he goes to a good home and new owners must be willing to stay in touch/send pics so that my soon to be heartbroken 10 year old knows 'his' dog is doing okay. Email and we will exchange phone numbers. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-03-02-00329Molly (female)

German Shepherd    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected,

    Looking for experienced German Shepherd handler. I took Molly in around age 5 and worked through her abuse and neglect in regards to aggression and fear. She is no longer aggressive, but still has GS anxiety (currently on prozac), in that she paces, and has a unique relationship with her tennis ball. She is a sweet girl, but 'herds' my other dog, and is a predator in regards to the cat. Unfortunately my training skills do not enable me to do much more for her, as well she needs an active owner. I broke my back and am limited to the amount of exercise I can offer her. She is 10 years old, but in the physical condition of a 4 year old ... (Read More)dog. She does not run off...I can have her off leash both at the dog park and at home. She is on the small size at under 70lbs. She also suffers from an itchy winter skin condition that the vet hasn't quite figured out. Food allergies are ruled out. My heart is sad to have to go through this process, but I can't put my sadness in front of her needs and hopefully the ability to find a home where she can be worked with and actively stimulated through her issues.

German Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Female Dogs Only, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    Gozer was born 9-3-09. I've had him since he was 7 weeks old. He is aggressive towards strangers and young kids. He takes awhile to warm up to new people. He has tried to bite strangers! We have a one year old and have to keep him and Gozer seperate. He is otherwise a great dog. Loves to cuddle, loves attention. Listens (unless stranger is around) Plays well with cats and some female dogs. He would do best as only dog and no young kids. I will be very careful who adopts him because he is my buddy and I would never find a new home for him if it wasn't a concern of someone getting hurt.
