Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Sofie is a 1.5-year-old red and black long-coated pure bred, AKC Registered, German Shepherd. She is looking for a forever home because her current owner is disabled. She is unable to safely handle Sofie and provide her the training she needs. Sofie is a high-energy, goofy girl who loves to play. She likes being outside and will need at least 2 hours of high-intensity exercise each day. She is anxious and needs a steady routine with lots of consistency in handling. She is very intelligent and needs mental stimulation to keep her from getting bored. Sofie, while currently in wonderful health, has been abused and neglected in the ... (Read More)past. She is sensitive and needs a confident owner with previous German Shepherd experience. She is not an easy dog but she is loving and loyal, and she will be a wonderful part of your family - if you are willing to put in the time and training. Sofie's owner is actively involved in finding her the right home. She is in the Burlington, VT area, available to answer all questions and set up a time for you to meet Sofie. Adopters with previous German Shepherd experience are encouraged to apply. Sofie is spayed, up to date on vaccines, gets along with dog savvy cats, and other dogs. Although she prefers to play with medium to large breed dogs. This is not a VT Dog Rescue dog, but we are helping the owner with selecting a new home. Applications should be submitted through our website: (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-03-26-00195Frida and Greta (female)

German Shepherd    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Still looking for a loving home for our girls. They are older but awesome companions. Posted a video of them playing in the warmer weather today. Please consider them if you love shepherds, have a nice yard, no young kids, and are looking for two dogs to keep you company without the excessive energy of a younger dog.**** These two girls were our first children. We are sadly needing to re-home them due to our son having significant allergic reactions to dogs. Frida and Greta are two wonderfully affectionate and classically loyal pure bred German Shepherds. They are a year apart and have grown up together. Frida is 8 and Greta will be turning ... (Read More)7 in June. They will need to be ADOPTED AS A PAIR as Greta, the less confident of the two (on the right in photo), greatly depends on Frida (on the left, darker face in photo) to feel secure. Frida and Greta would do well with someone looking for companion dogs to keep them company when they are home. They are fully house trained, can be left for a full working day if needed, and are very content to sleep on furniture most of the day. They enjoy each other's company but enjoy people's company more. They love being pet, talked to, played with, and also just being in your vicinity while you read, go on facebook, etc. *** Dogs and kids: They would likely do best in a home with no other dogs and no young children. They have never been asked to live with another, already established dog so it's hard to say how it would go- likely it could be done but it's hard to predict. They currently live with our 1 year old son. They have never shown aggression toward him (even when he grabbed Frida by the jowl and we had to pry him off of her) but they do actively avoid him (will move to a different room if he enters a room). They have been comfortable around older children (3-5) who ignore them or pet gently.*** Health: Neither dog has any major health problems. Both have dry skin. Frida's ears need frequent cleaning. Both dogs have had an ear hemotoma that was surgically dealt with. Frida has a cyst on her back that recently ruptured and will be removed. They eat 2.5 c/day of Iams Adult food, broken into 3 meals with a milkbone and piece of Pupperoni at each meal (yes, they are shepherds and couldn't just eat it plain!).*** Exercise: Frida and Greta are used to a good session of fetch daily/every other day in the yard. They love squeaky toys! We have a fenced in yard- Greta would never leave the yard but Frida would certainly wander without a fence (fortunately she mostly 'runs away' at a walk and enjoys being caught).*** Housemanners: Both dogs have excellent house manners. They do go on furniture because we have allowed that but are not persistent (if you put something on the couch like a big pillow to block them). They are not destructive, do not chew, etc. They will take food if it's on the floor and may consider something on a very low coffee table if left unattended but will not jump up and take things. *** Crating/being left alone: Frida is excellent being left- she can be left in or out of the crate. Greta needs to be left with Frida in order to feel okay. If left alone without Frida, she needs to be crated and will howl and show signs of significant anxiety. When crated next to Frida she does fine. Typically, when concerned about anything, both dogs feel most comfortable in their crates. Both are very good at going into their crates whenever asked.
