German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    We don't see these guys too often in Pennsylvania! Lee is a Carolina Dog mix (aka American Dingo mix) that came from a high-kill shelter. He is an energetic and playful boy and likely would do well in agility or obedience competitions! He is eager to please and loyal to his caretakers. Lee is sad right now. Unfortunately Lee was in a foster home with another male dog that was provoking him and a scuffle ensued. We are seeking an adoptive or foster home for Lee with either no dogs, or SUBMISSIVE dogs. He is NOT aggressive, but WILL hold his own! Lee is housebroken and walks well on a leash. We are getting him used to using a crate. We have ... (Read More)seen no aggression out of him at all. Lee does presently have heartworms, which is being treated at the rescue's expense. Lee displays no symptoms at all, and will lead a full and normal life once these annoying parasites have all been eradicated. Please don't let heartworms, a fully treatable thing, dissuade you from adopting Lee. * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * Interested in adopting? * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING GUIDELINES FULLY.

German Shepherd    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    Abe is the best, smartest dog that my family of 5 has ever owned in 25 years. My wife and three teenage daughters and I love Abe very much but he is the first German Shepherd we have owned, and he is totally unpredictable around strangers. He has a history of biting at a couple people, and showing dominant behaviour and barking at them as well. Typically, if the person shows no fear, then he backs off quickly and wants to play fetch. If the stranger shows fear, then he's extremely likely to be aggressive. In my opinion, he needs to go to a home that has very few visitors, and plenty of experience with German Shepards, with time to work with ... (Read More)him properly. Even though he's good with our daughters, I wouldn't want him placed in a new home with children. He's far too smart to chain to a tree as a protective dog. He's been trained, house broken, and lives to swim in our pond, chew on deer antlers, and chase rocks. He knows several commands such as sit, down, come, stay, bang, fetch, and leave it. The ONLY problem is Abe's aggression to strangers. If you have a history and knowledge of working with German Shepard dogs, and time to work with him, then Abe is for you. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-08-05-00464Boots (male)

German Shepherd    Age: Senior

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

    Boots is a purebred German Shepherd. His coat coloring is dark brown/black on most of his body except for his throat area into his mid section and his knees to his feet, which is a light brown/beige. He is about 33 inches tall from the floor to his to his head, and his weight is about 110-115 Pounds. His body length is about 35 inches from noes to rump. His tail is about 15 inches it's self, but I could be wrong about that from all the twirling and wagging he was doing when I was trying to measure him. He does seem to be getting lazier due to some pain in his hip area, which he nibbles at creating wounds which I continuously need to apply ... (Read More)with antibiotic to keep from infection. As for his temperament, he has typical traits that would be found the breed; Weary of strangers in what he considers 'his' area, although he will not bite unless a stranger or person that is not part of the family reaches to take his food or water bowl away, and even then it would be seldom because he is generally calm, relaxed. As for the nibbling on his wounds, he is not fussy when receiving medicine for his wounds unless it is a type that stings when applied, such as peroxide or alcohol, in which under such circumstance he will just run away and hide. If need be, I give him anxiety medicine or Benadryl to calm his nerves before applying those kinds, which I seldom need to. Hydrocortison spray for hot spots on dogs and neosporine seem to work just fine for the both of us. He will allow the application of those with the addition of some soothing sweet words spoken in a soft voice. Clipping his nails is easy, he stands there as if nothing were happening, but you may need to tell him to stay and hold his color to keep from him walking away. In the past, Strangers to him that he had just met less than an hour before they clipped his nails he made no fuss, and did not even flinch when she accidentally nipped his skin. When I do give him pain or anxiety pills, most of the time it is as easy as holding it in the palm of your hand, telling him treat, and if it drops from his mouth, point, pick it back up and say 'treat, eat it buddy, come on, eat the treat', And he will just eat them without having to make him. A house full of family members does not bother him, although rooms too crowded will cause him to cry and whine out loud, unless the crowd is the people he considers his pack. He will only cry if it is a crowd mixture of guests and family. Telling him to go lay down will work, unless he is that incredibly nervous. He is loving, snuggly, and once that bond is created with him, it sticks- nothing will break it. I can stick my hand into his food bowl, grab some food in the palm of my hand, and he will eat straight from it. He knows commands well, so don't let him play you for a fool. He knows. When people leave the home, he whines, and if there is no one home, he may howl. He adjusts incredibly quickly. Outside of the home, or 'area' he's very content with meeting new people, especially people that are considered friends to you. He does love people, although one out of ten times he may flinch when a stranger reaches the wrong way to pet him. He usually looks to the demeanor of his handler. In the home, however, he is wonderful with children as well as out of the home. I've come to see that he adjusts better around females, probably because of the intimidation that comes with a tall man with a deep voice. If that kind of man happens to be part of the family or 'pack', and is one of those who help take care of him, whether feeding, brushing, small walks, etc. He will nonetheless bond the same way. He has no aggression issues. He is a nervous dog at times, but I do believe in the circumstances going on in the situation through the past through months have been nerve racking for him. He will lay on you, In your arms, and will love with all of his heart. He does need a vet check up to have blood work done to see what types of meds he can be prescribed by the doctor instead of just over the counter remedies. He has a phenomenal intellect. You could probably have a whole conversation with him and he'd probably look at you as if to respond back. He is curious. He loves other dogs, and he is wonderful with children. His clumsy nature along with his sheer size may be an issue for small children due to his body length & clumsiness causing him to bump them on accident. As a senior dog, I don't recommend small children tugging at him or trying to initiate puppy-like play. The experiences I have had with him and toddlers/young kids have all been more than positive ones. I just never was in a situation with him where a child would poke and prod or tug at him, So I have no idea how tolerant he would be of that. I assume he wouldn't be fussy, He is a sweet hearted, loving animal who only dreams of a place where he is loved. Alas, If only I could keep him, it would be like old times, and we would be together, happy. (Less)
