Animal ID: 21Shooter (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    You know what you're missing? Me in your life! Shooter is my name and I'm one cool dude. Just got neutered and vaccinated. Thankfully my heartworm test was negative. I was a little worried since I was a stray for quite a while. Everyone agrees that I am a German Shepherd mix (and really handsome) about 3 years old. I am a little timid at first, but warm up quickly. I like it when you go slow with me so I can learn to trust you. My foster mom describes me as an awesome, laid back dog that likes to be with his humans. She says that I rarely bark but I let you know when I can't see you...I like to talk! I'm housebroken too. The only thing that ... (Read More)my foster mom didn't approve of was the one time that I showed food aggression with her dogs. She's working with me on that! I think that I would do well with me being the only dog in the house.I get along with other dogs, but I would hate for you to get mad at me if I get protective around food. Cats are ok and so are older kids. I've had a rough way to go and really deserve a happy, loving, secure forever home. Please respond to my post if you are interested...I'll be right here waiting! An adoption application can be sent to you. Upon adoption, an adoption agreement must be read and signed. Adoption fee is $250.00 to help cover the cost of veterinary care. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-05-00330Moose (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Neutered 

    Moose is about a year old. He was hit by a car in Lorain and wasn't claimed so we took him from a friend who worked at the vet. We got him in Feb. He has puppy tendancies. He likes to chase around our cats and get into the trash. He is house trained but still has accidents once in while. Recently he has become food aggressive with food he should have ie: got it off the counter, or from the trash. This is why we are rehoming. I have an 8 year old son. He wrestles with moose and he has never shown him any agression, only with the food example I previously stated. He would be great for someone with no cats and can work closely to figure out the ... (Read More)food issue. He a great dog otherwise, and gets along with my 9 year old lab. He is scheduled to be neutered on may 11th. (Less)

(Read More)featured on this page, please call (216) 664-3476 to speak to an adoption representative at CITY DOGS Cleveland. Or email citydogs@city.cleveland.oh.us About Our Shelter... CITY DOGS Cleveland is a program of Cleveland Animal Care & Control (CACC), located at 2690 W. 7th St. Cleveland, OH 44113. Public hours are Monday through Saturday from 10am-3pm, and Sunday 12-2pm. The CITY DOGS mission is to increase adoptions from the City Kennel by changing the image of the pit bulls who make up the majority of the kennel population, by preparing all adoptable dogs in the kennel for lives in loving homes and by creating as many opportunities as possible for the public to meet and get to know our dogs for the terrific pets they are meant to be. Our Adoption Process... Here's a little about how things work: All of the CITY DOGS posted for adoption are available for direct adoption from the kennel, unless noted otherwise. A handful of dogs are only available for rescue pull, which can be for a variety of reasons. You can either stop in during our open hours to meet a dog, or set up a meet and greet with your dog, which allows us to get the dog out of his/her cage for some exercise before you arrive. To set up a meet and greet, please email us at citydogs@city.cleveland.oh.us. About Our Dogs: All available dogs have gone through the ASPCA SAFER Assessment. This assessment is a snapshot of who the dog is at that given time. Our dogs are strays and we cannot make any guarantees with regard to behavior, temperament or health of any City Dog. We do not know what kind of home environment they were living in (i.e. with kids, other dogs or other cats), nor do we know if they are house trained. Everything we know about them is based on volunteer and staff observations. It is very hard to tell with certainty whether or not a dog will be good with kids, cats or another dog. If you have kids in the home or another dog, we do require that they be present for a meet and greet with the dog you are considering for adoption. Health/Vaccinations: Dogs that are adopted directly from the kennel need to go to your personal vet within a week or so of leaving the kennel. They do have their DHPP, Rabies and Bordetella vaccinations, are dewormed once and have a microchip. In addition, unfortunately many of the dogs do get kennel cough. This is not something that is contagious to people at all, but dogs that do have it will need to be on an antibiotic. (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Calling dog whisperers! This is the handsome Tieg. He is a brindle shepherd/husky/lab mix of about 7 years old. He came from another shelter which didn't want him because he was so scared, so we brought him to Second Chance to give him yet another chance. He must've had some terrible experiences before he was abandoned as he is absolutely petrified of people he doesn't know and it takes him a very long time to get to know you. He is, however, great with other dogs and seems to enjoy their company although he is not especially playful. Although he will be forever welcome at Second Chance, it's not possible to work with him to the degree he ... (Read More)needs and we would love for him to find a forever home. He will need to go to a home with another dog to give him some confidence and show him the ropes and, most importantly, needs a person with tremendous patience and experience working with traumatized dogs. If you meet those criteria, please consider Tieg, so that he can have the chance to learn to trust again. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-30-00013Gavro (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Due to changes in our family & work schedules we are putting our 3.5 year-old dog up for adoption. He is not getting the attention that he needs & it's been a heartbreaking situation which we can't alleviate. He is a very playful & lovable dog, good with our toddler (we always supervise), high energy, loves to run free in the dog park, play with other dogs & throw around his toys. As for temperament, we describe it as average but he's a mix of both submissive & dominant--for example, he obeys stay & no when in the house & lets our toddler take over when they're playing but outdoors he gets a little dominant & will lead walks (will pull you ... (Read More)around when not regular with walks) and will take a few extra 'come-ons' to get him to leave the park unless he's really pooped. Husky's will howl when bored (or when they hear police/fire sirens) and they are very smart-they'll figure out a way to run off to 'play' when their needs are not being met. Contact me if interested & we can discuss further to see if your family would be a good fit. Thank you! (Less)

    Nemo has been in our living home for 11 years. He is purebred from a breeder in Springboro, Ohio. Nemo is beginning to show his senior status (much lower energy level). Email me and I can text or email a short video. At first glance he is very protective if approached by another dog when walking. He attends puppycamp (non caged) and is described as submissive with the other dogs. I am moving in 10 days and he cannot come to the new place. Please help Nemo.

    Rudy is a beautiful young male German Shepherd mix with a nice temperament. He will need to be tested with potential canine family members but is doing well in his foster home with both males and females. Submissive temperaments are probably best. Rudy is fine with his feline sisters. A fenced yard is a must! For more information email rotndogz1@yahoo.com.

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This sweet little boy was found with 3 other dogs, we don't think the dog are related but they may have all been from the same owner. Seth is very shy, was extremely under weight when we got him. He weighed only 25 pounds and should have been more like 35. He is just a baby, 6 months maybe. To be this mistreated so young in life just breaks your heart. He is doing better every day and learning that people aren't all bad, learning house manners, crate training, house training and learning toys are a lot of fun. Seth can't wait to find a home and a family that will love him. age: 6 months adoption fee: $200

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-17-00353Boomer (male)

German Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Very High Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

     This animal is available to licensed rescue groups only.  Please do not enquire unless with a licensed rescue group. I have had Boomer for the last two years. He originally belonged to my son who is in the military. Boomer is very territorial which I saw not long after I brought him here (moving from South Dakota to Ohio). It appears he responds better to males than females (I sent him away to a K-9 academy for 30 days and this trainer had him under control, my son did too). Boomer is up to date on vaccinations and was neutered in 2014 hoping this would calm some of his aggression. I do not trust him off the leash and feel he has to be supervised with safety coming first. Boomer has lived with me and my 9 year old son so he has been around children ... (Read More)with no issues (as long as they live in the home). I have decided not to keep Boomer because I do not have the knowledge, time or expertise to provide Boomer with the long term training that he needs. However, I am not familiar with this kind of behavior and this is all new to me. Boomer's original owner and myself would like only serious inquiries and an individual with expertise to take Boomer. He is a very smart dog and is definitely trainable - but it may be a challenge (again, someone who is highly knowledgeable about this breed). Boomer will not even accept treats from someone whom he does not know. I will be happy to answer any questions from those with expertise and serious inquiries. (Less)

Animal ID: 100-16Winston (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult


    Winston is a friendly boy who can easily scare you (or an intruder) off with his deep, manly bark! He is a big boy who appears more shepherd than lab, but a mix nonetheless! Due to his large size and lack of training, he is difficult to walk on a leash, however with the proper training, we think he would be just perfect!

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Senior

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

    Charlie is who they were thinking of when they coined the term 'man's best friend'! He greets you with a whipping waggy tail every time you come home, follows you around the house, and is happiest just hanging out with you. He is potty-trained, walks great on a leash, and enjoys walks outdoors as much as nuzzling and snuggling indoors. He gets along fine with other dogs and cats yet he would be totally perfect in a one-on-one relationship with that special person. HISTORY Abandoned by his owner and 'urgent' (death row dog) at the kill-shelter, we pulled Charlie and got him taken care of in veterinary and foster care. At the time, he ... (Read More)showed signs of neglect like demodex mange and ear infection - both of which we have taken care of.

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-07-00117Betty (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Meet Betty! Betty is a lab/shepherd mix, about 6 years old, who came to the shelter from a hoarding situation. We don't know how she is with cats, but she is good with most other dogs. She likes to play the chasing/pouncing game, enjoys walks, is good on the leash and loves to take in all the smells. She keeps her kennel very clean at the shelter, so we think she would be easily house-trained if she isn't already. She can be shy on her first meeting with new people, especially with men and children, but it doesn't take long at all for her to warm right up (treats always help :)). Once she likes you though, she LOVES you, yet she isn't clingy ... (Read More)and will happily go off to do her own thing as well. She would love to go to a home, perhaps with another dog, where she can go for lots of nice walks and snuggle on the couch after. Could you be her person? Find out more about Betty on Youtube from one of her favorite shelter volunteers! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-03-00314Barrett (male)

German Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive, Fearful/Anxious 

    Available for adoption: Barrett 3y/o AKC GSD. He is UTD on shots and neutered. Barrett suffers from an enzyme deficiency so he has been constantly overlooked for adoption due to the cost of treatment. He needs a special owner who is willing to take on his deficiency and get him better. All he needs is powder in his food and careful monitoring. Because of the deficiency he has developed some food aggression, he has trouble processing his food so until his levels are normal he is always hungry. You will need to work diligently with your vet to get him back to normal. We believe that once he's on the right medications, his food aggression will ... (Read More)start to diminish when he's no longer starving. He is a great dog, knows basic obedience, he's great off leash. He would do best with older children and larger dogs. He's good with the other shepherds at the rescue but still needs some confidence building so he will occasionally lash out. Consider this sweet boy to be your next companion, he definitely deserves a chance. Email for an adoption application and for more information about Barrett (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Health: Spayed 

    Onyx is a wonderful dog and great companion! At 8 years old, this poor girl was dumped off at the pound by her owners, perhaps because they couldn't afford the medical care she needed. She was all fixed up at our vet and is doing great! Onyx would do best as the only pet, and no young children. She is a little shy upon first meetings but once she warms up she is as sweet as can be! Onyx is also gentle on the leash, doesn't pull at all, and is potty trained, and is 40 lbs. She doesn't like being in a crate - but she doesn't need to be in one at all. She would be great for a retired couple who wants a nice calm companion! Adoption Fee $100 - ... (Read More)Please submit an application at www.maggiesmissionrescue.org (Less)

Or email citydogs@city.cleveland.oh.us About Our Shelter... CITY DOGS Cleveland is a program of Cleveland Animal Care & Control (CACC), located at 2690 W. 7th St. Cleveland, OH 44113. Public hours are Monday through Saturday from 10am-3pm, and Sunday 12-2pm. The CITY DOGS mission is to increase adoptions from the City Kennel by changing the image of the pit bulls who make up the majority of the kennel population, by preparing all adoptable dogs in the kennel for lives in loving homes and by creating as many opportunities as possible for the public to meet and get to know our dogs for the terrific pets they are meant to be. Our Adoption Process... Here's a little about how things work: All of the CITY DOGS posted for adoption are available for direct adoption from the kennel, unless noted otherwise. A handful of dogs are only available for rescue pull, which can be for a variety of reasons. You can either stop in during our open hours to meet a dog, or set up a meet and greet with your dog, which allows us to get the dog out of his/her cage for some exercise before you arrive. To set up a meet and greet, please email us at citydogs@city.cleveland.oh.us. About Our Dogs: All available dogs have gone through the ASPCA SAFER Assessment. This assessment is a snapshot of who the dog is at that given time. Our dogs are strays and we cannot make any guarantees with regard to behavior, temperament or health of any City Dog. We do not know what kind of home environment they were living in (i.e. with kids, other dogs or other cats), nor do we know if they are house trained. Everything we know about them is based on volunteer and staff observations. It is very hard to tell with certainty whether or not a dog will be good with kids, cats or another dog. If you have kids in the home or another dog, we do require that they be present for a meet and greet with the dog you are considering for adoption. Heath/Vaccinations: Dogs that are adopted directly from the kennel need to go to your personal vet within a week or so of leaving the kennel. They do have their DHPP, Rabies and Bordetella vaccinations, are dewormed once and have a microchip. In addition, unfortunately many of the dogs do get kennel cough. This is not something that is contagious to people at all, but dogs that do have it will need to be on an antibiotic. (Less)

    Bear is a bit of a renegade. He is very scared of people. He has taken a liking to some of the volunteers at the shelter and once in a while will let them make over him and love on him. It will take a special person to adopt our bear-bear, but he does need a stable forever home so he doesn't have to be scared any more.

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered 

    What Nelson needs is a little bit of everything, love, obedience, and freedom!!! But what he needs most is that special person. We need to get them together. He has an abundance of energy but he is still a youngster and sadly growing up in the shelter which is just not good. He needs a home where he will have his own person to work with him every day. He is super smart but the shelter does not have the staff to do this daily. He is overly playful and wants to put his mouth on your arm and hands but not to bite you. They are recommending a home with no children. Also not sure about other dogs. He can be picky about people also. ... (Read More)There has to be the perfect person for him somewhere!!! Nelson is very special to us here at the shelter. He's been here a very long time waiting for that special person to find him and accept him for who he is. If you have a fenced in yard and kiddie pool he will be extremely happy!!!! (Less)
