Animal ID: 23016Zeus (male)

German Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hi there! My name is Zeus. I'm around 4 years old and I weigh about 60 lbs (I'm very underweight). I am a phenomenal dog with an awesome personality. I am looking for a Shepherd Savvy home that will be able to finish up my training and help me reach my full potential. I am a really smart boy, I just need some training and consistency. What you should know about me: I LOVE water!! I love playing in the pools here!!! I love going for car rides and I will try to drag you to the car if I want to go somewhere! I am very vocal if I want something too, I'll tell ya all about it. I get along well with other dogs and I have also been around cats in ... (Read More)my previous home and I did well with them too. I was in very poor shape when I was surrendered. I had ear infections, very bad skin and I was really skinny. I have seen a vet and had a full blood panel done. Everything appeared good. I had a 4DX test done also, it was negative for heartworm and the tick borne diseases. I am currently on antibiotics for my skin and my ears are being treated. I am feeling much better, but my new family needs to understand that I may require a special diet any may require additional vet care to get me completely straightened around. If you're looking for a nice dog to add to your family, please consider adopting me. Our adoption fee is $120.00. The adoption fee must be paid in CASH. We are unable to accept personal checks or credit/debit cards for adoption fees. ALL dogs/puppies adopted from our shelter will receive their parvo distemper vaccine, bordetella vaccine, rabies vaccine (if aged at 12 weeks or older), be dewormed with a 3 day course of panacur dewormer, be microchipped, receive their current Ohio dog license and will be spayed or neutered. ALL DOGS/PUPPIES WILL BE SPAYED OR NEUTERED unless a health issue prohibits the surgery from being performed. Not all dogs posted for adoption are spayed/ neutered yet. If you're driving a long distance to adopt, please verify that the vetting process has been completed and dog you're interested in adopting is still available for adoption. The above mentioned vetting is all included in your adoption fee. The adoption fee and what is included in the adoption fee is NON-NEGOTIABLE. Adoptions MUST be done at the pound and in person as there is paperwork to fill out and an adoption contract that must be signed by the adopter. This means you must be willing to travel to our shelter to adopt. IF the dog you're interested in adopting has medical conditions or injuries which require medical treatment, we ask that you help with the medical bills so we can continue to help the dogs coming in who need additional vet care. We are a county run shelter, therefore we cannot control our intake or the health or behavior of the dogs that come in to our shelter. Although we try our hardest to place all of our adoptable dogs, there are certain circumstances in which any dog in our care could be euthanized at any time and without further notice (IE: sudden untreatable medical condition or injury, temperament or behavioral problems which may not be apparent when the dog first arrives, lack or space, etc.), therefore all dogs at our shelter should be considered urgent. The adoption of a more highly adoptable dog will mean more time for the less adoptable dog in the kennel next to him! Shelter hours are: Monday-Friday: 8 am- 4 pm Saturday: 9 am- 12 pm. The pound is CLOSED to the public on Sunday. There is nobody in the office on Saturday and Sunday, so therefore we are unable to answer or return phone calls over the weekend. Can't adopt a dog? We would love to have more volunteers who are able to spend time with our dogs! The dogs LOVE going for walks and the socialization and exercise helps make the dogs more adoptable.

At this time we separated them for safety. He will not leave yard, leash trained but not needed. During this time, simba has lived in our home with three other dogs with no issues.

BUT - they are resilient and happy and already loving life and coming out of their shells at their foster home! Rhonda & Cindy would be better in a home with dogs their size or larger. One of them is being treated for Heartworm, and they'll both be spayed and all healthy to start their new life in their forever home. Adoption fee for the pair ...

She is slight/early onset heartworm positive, the 'fast kill' treatment which the rescue will provide via their Vet, and provide guidance to the adopter during treatment.

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 am really good when left home by myself...you can trust me not to get into anything or make a mess. 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 $150.00 to help cover the cost of veterinary care. (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)

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?

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)

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

    Looking for a forever home for 5 year old husky/shepherd mix Bosch. Bosch is a good dog. He loves going for walks, is good with children, rarely barks (but can give a good husky whine), and hunting down critters in the backyard. He has husky tendencies to escape and chase, so a fenced in backyard is a plus for him. He also has the husky trade mark fur shed each summer. We like Bosch, but we will be going through several moves in the next few months and will not have the time or space he deserves. Bosch comes with fully up to date vaccines, his remaining monthly heart worm pills, collar/leash, and crate/dog bed.

    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)
