German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered 

    Cash is a very unique dog. He is very good around other dogs. I have a pitbull and miniature pincher and they all get along very well. I was suppose to be only fostering him temporarily and the owner just didn't come back for him. Unfortunately I cannot keep him since my landlord only allows two dogs. I want to find a perfect home for him. I'm not him, so I cannot say if he will or will not be happy where ever he goes. He loves and requires attention. He lays in his cage out of the way the most of the time and also we never have the cage locked. I really beef help on this one. I don't want to take him to a pound or a shelter. I want him to ...

    Hi there. My name is Lieutenant. I'm about year 1-2 years old and I weigh about 65 lbs. I was found as a stray in the Lisbon area. I had showed up at someone's house one night. I was on the porch but I was cold and scared so I jumped on the door, just hoping to get their attention... Well, turns out the door wasn't latched right and it swung wide open. They had a super scary little chihuahua that wouldn't let me inside so I had to spend the night outside on the porch. They called the pound the next afternoon and had them come pick me up. I was timid at first and didn't want to approach her, but then I warmed up and let her catch me. I am ... (Read More)a very good boy here at the pound. I seem to listen pretty well and I also seem to be a pretty well mannered boy. The girls here definitely think I have been a house dog. I'm a good, clean boy. no messes in my kennel. I get along really well with other dogs. I am even good with small dogs. If you're looking for a sweet dog to add to your family, please consider adopting me. I appear to be in good health.

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    I have fallen on hard times and am being evicted in 7 days. I do not want to take him to an animal shelter where he would be euthanized. He is a loving friend who has been loyal to me in the years following after my wife and kids abandoned us. It is difficult to find a place to rent that will also accept a dog, especially a German Shepherd. It takes time and searching. I need a person to take him in for a month or two and take care of him and love him for a month or two while I find a new place to live with him. This is meant to be a temporary adoption only--so he doesn't suffer being stuck in a car while I try to find a new place. ... (Read More)Please help me keep him comfortable in his twilight years.

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Joe was found as a stray and taken to a rural Ohio dog pound with an embedded collar, which was removed and cleaned under anesthesia and closed with sutures and staples. He spent more than a month recovering from this procedure at a kennel in Columbus before coming to Dogworks in December 2014. He is a big, handsome dog! Possibly a boxer/shepherd/hound/other mix? Joe weighs 80-90 lbs. and is 2-3 years old. Joe is leery of strangers in public situations (including our Meet & Greets) but LOVES meeting people one-on-one. He is very intelligent and eager to please! His foster home includes other adult dogs as well as puppies. He loves to play ... (Read More)with the other big dogs but will sometimes growl at them over food or treats; no food aggression towards people. He has also had exposure to an infant in his foster home. Joe likes to smell his human foster brother and check out what he is doing, but leaves him alone for the most part. Foster family reports no accidents in the house. Joe is crated at night and while his family is out, and he tolerates the crate well without whining or crying. Joe stays off the furniture unless he is invited. He is learning how to sit and lay down. Joe will require a fenced yard and an adopter prepared to teach him some manners and keep him in line. Joe is okay on the leash. He does pull slightly while on a leash but he would be easily trained. He does not bark at other dogs. He rarely barks at all. He is neutered and up-to-date on veterinary care. (Less)

    Handsome shepherd mix, 75lbs, neutered male, 5 yr young. House trained and crate trained, and utd on all vaccines. Heartworm negative and flea free. Very sweet boy, good with adults and children, and good protector. Due to his size we recommend children over the age of 10. Loves car rides and his toys, and has LOTS of LOVE to give. Prefers to lounge on couch while he waits for you to come home. Prefers to sleep with you , but has his own bed just in case. Knows basic commands and a few tricks (sit, shake and speak for a treat!). Lived w/small dogs (JR terrier) in the past Doc is very smart and a quick learner and will do best with a ... (Read More)confident leader who is consistent and willing to remind DOC about appropriate behavior in social situations - which he has mastered through training Fenced yard is a necessity! Remember ALL adopted pooches need TIME to adjust to their new surroundings; some adjust faster than others depending upon the breed and their history (which is usually unknown). We always recommend a basic training course to help facilitate the bonding of your 'rescue'. (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Buttons is looking for a new furever home. She turned 4 years old on February 2nd, 2015 and weighs around 70lb. We have had her since she was 3 months old. She is spayed and up to date on vaccinations (needs 2015 boosters and 3 year rabies boosters) Needs 2015 tags as we did not get them due to rehoming. She is 100% potty trained, hasn't had an accident since she was 5 months old. She is great with cats (we have two 2 year old cats) She knows basic commands; sit, stay, no, outside, down. The reason we are having to rehome her is because she is attacking our other dogs. So much so that she has hurt two of them and has also hurt herself. She ... (Read More)is always on edge and with four young children (7, 6, 2, newborn) I don't want anymore dog fights!! She needs a firm leader!! She has her own personality, she is stubborn so if she doesn't want to do something she won't (for example she won't go out if she doesn't have to go, she'll lay on the couch ignoring you until you raise your voice at her) She is crate trained (night only and only caged due to her recent fighting) She is great with our four kids and our friends' kids. She is VERY protective of the house and anyone in it, she doesn't like strangers. She is a great girl, but the past years she's progressively gotten worse and as I said before, I'm not okay with risking my kids' safety. I am asking $50 fee for her. I am in Warren County, Ohio (zip 45005) and can drive up to 2 hours. Vet reference required, NO EXCEPTIONS!!! We love Buttons like one of our own children so a home visit and personal questions may also be required. If I get a bad vibe upon meeting you, Buttons will NOT leave with you. I absolutely MUST have contact with you and if for any reason things don't work out, she WILL come back to us. You will NOT rehome her yourself!!!!! If you are still interested, please email. Thanks.

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Ok, Goodwin is 3 years old and was recently returned by his 4th family. He is super smart, knows sit, shake, down and stay. He walks excellent on a leash and rides great in the car. So you wonder why he keeps getting returned? The first family had small children and Goodwin thought he was in charge, so no SMALL children for him. The second family was an older couple and they did keep him for almost a year, but he was just too active for them. The woman in his third family could not handle him. (he needs an experienced owner who will be in charge) In his fourth and final home, Goodwin became very protective of his family and did not like the ... (Read More)busy household with many visitors. So, he's back at the shelter looking for his perfect family. He needs to be an only dog. He needs an experienced owner. He is protective of his home and family; he will need someone who knows how to work with that. A fenced yard would be ideal! He really is a great dog and is a staff and volunteer favorite. He just needs to find his match. Is that you? (Less)

    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.

    Bear and Izzy are awesome pups. Bear is EXTREMELY loving and always tries to please. Izzy is shy but she does warm up and then gives the tiny little kisses while she looks at you to make sure it's ok. They have come so far and worked very hard and they more than deserve a home to call their own. They must be adopted together as they have cared for and relied on one another when they had nothing else. It just wouldn't be fair to separate them.
