Rescue Me ID: 16-11-26-00184Bear (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Bear is a smart sweet dog that needs work. He has been in his kennel since a puppy only going outside to use the bathroom and has not had the proper handling or work with him that he needs. He is in need of somewhere that he can run and play while learning what it really means to be a dog. He has never been socialized with many people or animals so his temperament is uncertain. He is scared of new situations, but loves to run and play as well. He needs a friend that can be assertive yet understanding. Great potential to be an amazing dog - potential has been taken granted and unable to be worked with by the current owners due to their age. ... (Read More)Smart dog just needs a job and love.

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hello I'm Bear! I'm a tall beautiful guy around 80lbs; maybe one of my parents was a great dane? I LOVE people and dogs. And I love kids too! I listen extremely well and I learn cues quickly. My trainer says I'm very responsive. I am not overly confident sometimes and I never learned to say hi appropriately with doggy friends, so they sometimes don't like the way I approach them from the front. My trainer says I'm just plain rude but that I could learn to say hi appropriately if I was shown how. I play well and get along with my doggy friends though, despite my approach. I have a way of talking when people talk to me. If you don't know me ... (Read More)you could think I was growling but I'm not mean in any way; it's just how I talk to people that talk to me! I would rather not be left alone all day outside because I can get a little bored and then I bark a lot. So I need to be with a person who wants my company and my affection, and doesn't just shut me outside by myself. (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Fester is half German Shepherd/Golden Retriever. He is a very very smart dog, knows a few tricks and is potty trained. I recently got pregnant and am constantly sick so I am not able to give him the attention he needs. Would love somebody to take him that has a yard, but also lets him come inside. He is aggressive towards new people and animals, but will immediately calm down within a few minutes and want to play. He is not neutered yet, so i'm sure that will calm his aggression. I'm only willing to give him to someone that is willing to meet with us first. Please text me if you're interested in meeting him! 801-472-9544

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-07-00637Linc (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    **This picture is old from when we originally got him, post neutering. He is not sick*** Linc was adopted from the Humane Society in April, 2015. Due to housing issues, I do not have any suitable housing for myself let alone him. If it weren't for the fact that the circumstances were unfair for him, I would keep him. He can be anywhere from very energetic to very calm. This is a working breed dog, and he loves to run, swim, etc. He doesn't understand the point behind playing fetch and gets bored very easily. If you can teach him to control his pace, though, he will be the perfect dog to take jogging, hiking, etc. THIS DOG IS VERY SMART!!! ... (Read More)IF HE WANTS TO DO SOMETHING HE WILL FIGURE OUT A WAY TO DO IT. If it becomes too difficult though, he will give up. This is a dog to keep all food objects at the back of the counter, not near the edge. He will not get on the counter to grab food, only if it's within easy reach. He is a great and loving dog, especially around people. He has never bit me or anyone that has met him, however he can be a little rough around children due to the fact that he doesn't realize how big he is. I didn't have any children to teach him to be gentle around, so sadly that is something I couldn't train him on. He is a VERY dominant dog and get's along with most dogs, just has a habit of getting a bit too rough, especially with small dogs. As long as you give them an introduction and wait till Linc and the other dogs get used to one another, he will be fine. We believe that the previous owners didn't socialize him as a puppy, which is why he isn't very good with new dogs now. HE IS NOT GOOD AROUND CATS. PERIOD. As soon as he sees a cat, he will be gone. I don't think he actually wants to harm the cat, more like he is just trying to play, but doesn't realize the cat is scared of him. He is a dog that relies majority on his eyesight rather than his sense of smell or hearing. HE IS NOT GOOD AROUND RODENTS. He is ok if you teach him that you are the dominant one and if the rodent is with you at all times or locked in a room. He will not try to jump you to get the animal or dig through the door. However, if you leave the rodent unattended with Linc, he will try to kill it. Birds are ok, if they are in their cage and they have been introduced. My ex and I owned a cockatiel and he is used to small birds. I am pretty confident that large birds wont be a problem as long as they are properly introduced. He is used to being an indoor dog, but is definitely capable of being an outdoor dog. He is definitely a lap dog trapped in a big dogs body, and loves to chill and watch movies with his owner. He will get attached to one person in the house, and is very protective of his owners, which is part of the reason why he needs a really thorough introduction to new dogs. He gets stressed out really easy, and can get sick. He doesn't enjoy going to the groomers, because they remind him of the pound. He doesn't have food aggression, we took care of that immediately once taking him home. But I would double check that before allowing kids to come around him when he is eating. He is also a glutton when he eats and gets excited when he hears the word 'food' or 'Hungry?'. If he is, he will react very excitedly and start jumping around waiting for you to fill his food bowl. To stop him from trying to eat out of the bowl before putting it down, I taught him to sit and wait for me to tell him SPECIFICALLY the word 'eat' before he will eat. You can either decide to break him of this habit or you can keep this habit going. I will also be giving all of the collars, toys, a 200.00 kennel to the new owner at NO CHARGE. All I would like is to see the home he will be going to, meet the owners as well as any pets before handing him over, as well as updates on his well being. If this essay on Linc doesn't prove enough that I love this dog, I don't know what will. Honestly, if it weren't for circumstances, you would not be seeing this posted. Feel free to either call me: (801) 703-8400 or Feel free to to email me: Calling me is better and I will get back to you faster. Please leave your name, a good contact number, your current living arrangements(ie. house in West Valley with a large backyard, kids, other pets, etc) so that way I understand the situation I will be sending Linc into before we talk. Thank you so much for reading. (Less)
