Rescue Me ID: 17-10-21-00100Maximis (male)

German Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

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

    Maximis is a very sweet boy, he is a 4 yr old registered solid black german shepherd. He weighs roughly 105 lbs and is considered a large bone shepherd, he's a big boy! He is always happy and loves to go for rides in the cab of the truck. He is intrigued by cats but just can't quite figure them out and will chase them if they run but if they don't he's happy to just hang out with them. He does have a lot of energy and is a bit of a busy body and is not content to just lay on the porch all day as he is always on the go. Maximis gets along great with other dogs and can be a nuisance as he likes to play rough and being up in other dogs space. ... (Read More)He thinks every dog he meets wants to play even if they don't want to. So he would do best with another high energy dog that loves to wrestle like he does. He is used to being outside 24/7 but has been kept in a crate if needed and does fine. He is great at the vet and for the groomer. He has had a month of training and did great but we just haven't done our part with being consistent with his training. Maximis still knows the commands and can be very stubborn sometimes but will listen and comply after some refresher courses. He listens to a man better than a woman and seems to bond with men more. He is my husbands dog and our main concern is that he go to a good home with possibly another dog and an individual or family that can give him daily attention and will be able to allow him to feel like he is part of the family. We love him very very much but our change in circumstances don't allow us to give him the best life he can have and be as active as he is. Within the last year he has seemed to develop some environmental allergies so that is another concern that someone will have to take into account, he will probably eventually need to be kept on medication during the early spring and summer months. Please feel free to call or email only if you are serious and feel that you can give him a happy and active life. **** WE ARE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE THAT HAS KNOWLEDGE OF THIS BREED AND CURRENTLY OWN OR HAVE OWNED ONE IN THE PAST**** (Less)

German Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed 

    Hilda is 4 yr old with a heavy drive instinct. Always wants to carry something in her mouth. She is very playful, Loves all people but maybe would need larger kids so she wouldn't knock down while running around. jShe is housebroke, very good in the home. But she just does not like other dogs around her. So a fenced in yard or a big farm for her to run around in is what we are looking for. No to cats or chickens, She is good around sheep,goats, might herd them a bit but not hurt them. She has been around horses, She loves to go hiking and swimming.

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    My story: I was dumped as a pup, then I got into somebody's trash and they shot me, I found my way to nice humans and they took me to Doc and he had to amputate my rear leg from the gunshot wound, after I recovered those humans took me to Big Dog Heaven because I did not like their cat. They wanted me to stay because I'm cute and very sweet, but that darn cat came first. So I was jealous and they could not keep me. I can either be the only dog, or maybe one or two a bit smaller would be cool with me, I do like to play with the smaller ones here at the shelter. Sometimes I play too rough with the bigger ones and they don't like it so much. I ... (Read More)am the fastest runner here at the rescue. I am always happy, and if the weather is nice, I like outside, but I don't like really cold weather and I am good inside the house, so I get to come in at nights and when it is cold. We also have siesta every day so we come in from the playyards and nap for a couple of hours to give our caretakers a break. I love to sleep with a human, and I am pretty good at it. But around here...we have to take turns on that, and I never get enough of that I love it so much, almost as much as watching tv on the sofa. I am handi-capped, but the only special need I have is a really good thick bed for my hips so I wont get arthritis as bad later. Gotta take care of the other back leg, don't want nothing to happen to it : ) So my crate has a big ortho bed in it for naptime and my human sleeps on memory foam yeah baby..it's the bomb! (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    This is Miss Robin. She's a 2 year old mix, of what we are not sure. Our best guess is Dachshund/Shepard mix. She weighs in around 30 pounds. She come from a hoarding case. Robin is a very different kind of girl. We've tried hard but where unable to house break her. Probably due to being locked in a home all day with a mental ill owner. We where asked to step in when her owner was put in a home. All Robins pups found forever homes, but Robin is still with us. Robin's hobbies are barking at strangers and chasing bugs. Robin gets along wonderful with other dogs. We think she'd make a great addition to a farm. Once she trust you she will guard ... (Read More)you with her life. She has a sponsor so her adoption fee is only $50. If you'd like to give this girl the dream home instead of living her life in the shelter give Amanda a call. 931-212-1030.

Rescue Me ID: 17-01-13-00007Hank Williams (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hank is a sensitive, highly interactive and intelligent dog that needs a leader as his human. He likes to lean up against you and be your 'baby', look you in the eye and thinks the bed is his :). This was a Death Row dog that is supposed to be a 4 year old Shepherd/ Canaan Mix, but might have Basenji . Only DNA would prove his actual breeds. The shelter said Canaan mix, but I think he looks like he might have some German Shepherd. He weighs approx 49-55 lbs. All shots current, neutered and HW Negative. I've worked with him, trained, and behavior mod'd him quite a bit, and he has been highly progressive. He has started to be good with my ... (Read More)dogs and cats, and needs a slow introduction. The path he had gone down was very difficult for him and he needs permanence. He knows most the commands and his food aggression is moderate now. Crate feeding will be a constant for him. He will make a great companion. Home Inspection(50 mile radius)and vet references required. Features: Obedient, potty trained, crate trained, good on leash....INDOOR ONLY HOME (Less)
