Rescue Me ID: 17-08-15-00484Gretchen (female)

German Shepherd    Age: Puppy

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

    This dog is in Tennessee. Adoption Donation $225 if picked up in TN, $275 plus transport fee for out of state adoptions. Looking for a companion who is always ready to listen? A dog who is happy to play fetch or tug when you want, or to lay at your feet when you're having a quiet night in... Gretchen is that dog. She has plenty of energy to keep up with kids, but she's also happy just to be near her family. This intuitive girl seems to be a quick study and would be a great candidate to pursue further obedience training. Gretchen is a 1 year old, 61 pound German Shepherd. We are working on her weight as she needs to gain a few still. She ... (Read More)is good with other dogs and plays well (but doesn't like to share her food) and does great with kids. She has been introduced to cats and was polite with them. She is crate trained and we believe she is house trained as well. Gretchen is seeking a German shepherd-experienced home with a securely fenced yard. If you think she sounds like what you're looking for, please ask us about Gretchen! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-07-26-00537Crystal (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Crystal is such a beauty! We believe she is a German Shepherd mixed with something slightly smaller because she is only about 40lbs and is full grown. Based on her teeth, she looks to be around 1 1/2 years old (as of 7-21-17) and in great spirits. She is heartworm negative, very friendly and tested well with other dogs. Crystal is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. *PLEASE SUBMIT AN APPLICATION AT RURALANIMALRESCUEEFFORT.ORG **An application and home visit are required prior to adoption. All of our pets are or will be spayed/neutered, up to date on all vaccines and micro-chipped prior to adoption. Please complete the ...

Rescue Me ID: 17-07-21-00124Hilda (female)

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.

Animal ID: SSRR17-0615-033Friday (male)

German Shepherd Mix    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, Heartworm Positive 

    Will you leave me too? Everyone always leaves me... Meet Friday! The dog with the looks, personality, and charm to make him 'Dog of the Year' in any household! Friday is a Rottweiler & German Shepard Mix. Brown and golden colored. With a handsome, squishy, and chunky face! Gorgeous coat. Shiny. Healthy and vibrant look to him. He's about 68 lbs (up from the low 50's when he first came to us neglected and starving!). Neutered, UTD on all shots, Heartworm Preventative and Flea & Tick Meds. Micro chipped. He is an empathetic, playful (get ready because he's oh-so-playful and energetic!!), snuggle-bear and your soon-to-be rock! Friday cares ... (Read More)so much about how others feel and wants everyone in the household to be happy and loved! This is all he wants! To love and be loved! So simple. He'll be that shoulder you cry on, soft fur to bury your face in, cheek to press to your own with eyes closed-- he's the best friend you didn't know you were missing. Friday loves you already-- and you've only just met through a picture! Friday would flourish in a household where he is not left alone all day. He has anxiety from being abandoned at a very young age. Solitude, scavenging, and desertion are things he sadly learned best after being left to roam the rural countryside for many months until he serendipitously came into our hands. He is fearful of being left alone for long periods of time and can get into quite naughty behavior if left to his own devices for too long. He longs to trust that a family will always be there for him. He craves frequent two-legged and/or four-legged companionship. No more solitude! He has seemingly been hit on repeated occasion-- as can only be surmised by his penchant for cowering and hanging his head low in undeserved defeat. He being so young, though, his beginning years should be but forgotten memories when he meets and belongs to his true forever home. He loves dogs (loves to play with them!) and is funnily impartial to cats. He ADORES and DELIGHTS in children. Do you have a child playmate elementary school age and up for him to play with, cuddle next to, sleep beside? Then Friday is your child's next best friend too! He will be over-the-moon over such an innocent and playful small human companion and fiercely loyal to the whole family unit-- from the smallest to the tallest. He takes well to training-- thrives off of order, consistency, and interactive instructions. He is very intelligent! What he could learn and do if someone took the time to train him! His eyes dance when 'lessons' begin-- bottomless eyes that see to the depths of your soul! Not only seeing, knowing, but begging for only one thing: to be loved eternally and wholeheartedly. Without any 'take backs.' He longs to be a pet in a home with a fence because he likes to run and stretch his legs when the mood strikes him; so he needs a good protective boundary to keep him safe for when this free-spirited mood may strike his fancy! He would love a playful and friendly canine companion to help him learn the ropes in his new home. He may vie for the alpha position, so a home where he can take that spot happily by all or co-exist in comradeship as a 'close second' alpha would be ideal. Though, too, if he were just one-on-one with a human pal, consistently and frequently, and no other furry friends in the house, this too could be exactly what this dog needs! As long as he is with a loved one, has someone beloved to play with (don't forget he's so very playful!) and to snuggle with, he is eternally happy and content. Friday has TOO MUCH LOVE TO GIVE to be without a home and family! Do you have a warm embrace that will never grow cold and an open LOYAL heart for Friday ? A TRULY FOREVER home? If so, he would love to meet you! (Less)

He is a German Shepherd/Lab mix and is about 5 years old and 53 pounds of pure lover boy. Brutus likes nothing best but to be snuggled up next to you on the couch or in bed. He is a playful and fun boy but also very affectionate. Brutus can be a little bit shy when you first meet him but it doesn't take him long to make friends. He would be happy as an only dog, but he also he gets along with non-dominant female dogs and loves to play with them. He does love going on car rides and adventures, but is ... (Read More)content just being at home too. His goal is to be a human's best pal, older children would also be best, some who can play fetch with him outside. Going for walks, and watching TV is Brutus' preferred flavor, hes a mature guy who prefers a night in rather than a group outing. His gorgeous red coat and white mittens couple so sweetly with his soft liver nose and deep chestnut eyes. As a bonus, Brutus is already crate and house trained. If Brutus seems like nothing but a big softy to you, then please adopt him today! (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hey there! My name is K.C. and I am searching for a forever home. I am a beautiful girl (facts are facts, folks) and am a Belgian Malinois/German Shepherd mix. I am approximately 2 years old as of 6-25-17 and weigh 48 lbs. My people had to move and couldn't take me so they surrendered me to a kill shelter. Thankfully I am in foster care with a rescue now and I have the chance to find the family I have been dreaming of. I am a very active girl and would really like to be adopted by someone experienced with the Malanois/Shepherd breed. I need a job, which can even be going on daily walks and/or runs, hiking and carrying your water bottles in ... (Read More)a doggy back pack. When they say dogs like me are smart, they aren't lying! However, that also means that we have to use our energy and intelligence on a daily basis or we can be a little unruly. I get along well with submissive dogs, since I am more of an alpha. I am still young, so I have a lot of energy and will definitely need a fenced yard or avid runner. I would not intentionally hurt a child, but I do jump a bit and have energy that can cause me to knock a small child over. So, I would be better with older children or no children. I am an exquisite dog for the right person. Is that you? If so, please apply for me today! My adoption fee is $125.00. I am spayed, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. *PLEASE SUBMIT AN APPLICATION AT RURALANIMALRESCUEEFFORT.ORG **An application and home visit/meet & greet are required prior to adoption.

Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    Kip is a black and tan chubber who was left behind on his steps when his family pulled away with their house. You read correctly - the family pulled their mobile home out ,but left the front steps and their dog. Kip waited on the steps for 4 days and no one came back for him. The mail carrier noticed the family had left and kept waiting to see if they came back for the dog, but they did not. So, the mail carrier started making calls to get Kip into a rescue. Kip is about 4 years old based on his teeth and has a lot of playful energy. He loves to play with his blankets and stuffed cloth toys. Kip loves to ride in the car and sits really well ... (Read More)while looking out the window. Kip doesn't like being picked up by his belly for some reason - he is sensitive on that part of his body. He will get into a car fine on his own if it isn't too monster high, but any lifting must take place under his rear end. We don't know if he has had an old injury or old trauma to his belly that makes him sensitive to that part of his body? He was great for his vet exam and unfortunately, but not surprisingly, tested positive for heartworms. He is being treated however. Kip seems to prefer the lady dogs to male dogs and is a nice combination of playfulness but not hyper and certainly enjoys a post-playtime nap. While we do not know if he was an inside dog before his house was removed, but Kip does not do his business in his kennel and will hold it until he gets outside. If you are interested in Kip, please ask for an application! (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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)

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.

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)
