What they can tell right off the bat is that I am a little bit shy but very sweet and happy. I am 7 months old and am expected to be a small-medium sized dog.

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Lucy is a 5 year-old, 45 pound Shepherd-Hound sweetheart. She's introverted so it takes her a little bit of time to trust new people. When she does trust you, she is very loving and loyal. She does great in and off leash, is house trained and listens very well to commands. She doesn't play fetch or tug of war. She will go for long walks with you, keep you company and loves belly rubs Lucy is up to date on all her shots, she is spayed and all her medical records are available since she was 6 weeks old. She is a very healthy girl. She is socialized and has been going to dog parks and lots of walks since she was a puppy. However, she is timid ... (Read More)if someone she doesn't know approaches her and she will shy away. She does good with other dogs, but would prefer to have you all to herself. She does great with cats. Lucy does not do well with small children and would do best with a single person or a couple who has grown children or does not plan to have children. She is ok with children visiting her home, but will have anxiety if children live in her home. We would like for her to go to a stable home where there are no plans to move for a while. A home with a fenced in yard would be great, but it is not required as she never runs off. A home visit will be required to make sure Lucy goes to loving humans who plan to have her for the rest of her life. She will come with her harness, leash, food bowl, bed and lots of love. (Less)

German Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Dave is a fun loving dog that loves to play and hang out around the house. Dave loves spending time with his toys and chasing when you throw them. Dave is house trained and clicker trained and follows common commands including waiting until released to cross doorways and can walk along side you without pulling. He's also listens very well as he is highly motivated by food. Dave is still getting to know how to greet and play with other dogs and gets excited and may bark, but often he can be easily redirected and will continue the walk. He rarely barks inside the house, and barks at animals (squirrels, etc.) outside. He does get distracted ... (Read More)by light reflections and shadows so he may whine when he sees them or chase them. Dave is ready for a nap or bed when you are and when he settles down he's quiet and sleeps close by. He becomes very attached and wants to go everywhere you go and will sit out of the way as long as your in view. Dave is great with others people and kids, give lots of kisses, and loves to snuggle and be rubbed. (Less)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    He's a well mixed shepherd stray out of South Carolina. The shelter he was in thought so highly of this boy that they had kept him since last November and even found the money to treat his heartworms. That was just a couple weeks ago so he's still in the stage where he needs to be kept quiet. His shyness may work in his favor right now. He's content in his crate most of the time, but he's gradually becoming more comfortable around here and his inquisitive nature is beginning to show. He's been fine with all the dogs but I've been keeping Scarlett with him a lot because she's relatively new too and I thought she'd clue him in on our operation ... (Read More)around here. Yesterday he followed her upstairs to my office and he set about exploring the second floor of the house. He marks a little bit (he's not yet neutered), but only on places that other dogs have marked before him. If I get him directly outdoors when he comes out of his crate he immediately does his business so we really haven't had any problems. Although he's shy, he wants human contact, you can see it in his eyes and it doesn't take too much to win him over. As soon as he trusts you at all, he turns his back to you for a butt scratch, it's his favorite form of contact. (Less)

He had been at animal control for 14 days before his family came looking for him. When told there was an impound fee, they stated that he wasn't worth it and left. Being a senior and blind, his chances of making it out alive were practically nil. Rainbow was asked if we could help. A plea was sent out for a foster and one of our long-time volunteers stepped up. We also had a sponsor. ... (Read More)Finley is such a sweet boy and seems to get along with all dogs. We aren't sure about cats because he hasn't been around them. He likes children and wants to go for walks. He was found to have a heart murmur in addition to his blindness probably due to cataracts. We will have him evaluated for both issues. We would like for him to find his furever home so he can experience a loving, caring environment.

Rescue Me ID: 15-04-14-00070Elsa (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Meet Elsa! she is a 7-8 month old beautiful white shepherd mix that came to us from a horrible situation. Elsa and her two siblings were left on their own to fend for themselves from the beginning, starved and neglected with little to no human contact and then dumped in a high kill rural shelter in the south. What little human contact they did have doesn't seem to have been pleasant so understandably, it has been a very slow process trying to re-gain their trust and help them feel secure. Because they all still have fear issues, we do consider them **Special Needs** and they will need very special homes. It took a lot of patience, time and ... (Read More)love for them to open up in their foster home but the more they felt safe and secure with their surroundings, the more they started to open up and act like puppies. Elsa's siblings have both recently found their forever homes and now it is Elsa's turn. Elsa has such a sweet nature and she loves playing with other animals, even the dog savvy cat is one of her pals! Even though these puppies seem like happy, playful, silly pups in their foster home, a place where they feel comfortable, they are still very fearful of the outside world. A new person, different places, car rides, even being on a leash is scary for them. Their foster mom is working with them to try and build confidence but with fearful puppies you cannot push them. They have to do things in their own time and require very positive training techniques. We have found that there are some things that really help them with the adjustment period and therefore we would like to have these things present in any potential home. A relaxed home with a fenced in yard is a must. While they do not really enjoy walking around on a leash, they absolutely love playing in the yard. They play with toys, they chase balls, they really like running around in a place that feels secure. Having another established, outgoing, friendly dog already in the home also works wonders. Even though they are fearful, the have always gotten along well with other animals and are submissive in nature. They will follow the other dog's lead so having a confident role model in the home really helps bring out their true personalities and helps them settle faster into a new home environment. Elsa's family will need extra patience and time to work with her and help build confidence. Her forever family needs to understand and accept that she may always have some fearful tendencies and prefer to be a 'homebody'. If you think you may have room in your heart and home for this very special little girl please contact us to arrange a meet! (Less)
