Animal ID: cl-magsrBowden (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    DESCRIPTION: Bowden is a very a exuberant boy. He's all puppy and exhibits all the normal puppy behaviors. Bowden is an intelligent boy that would benefit and excel in a training class. Training is a must for all our dogs and we have been working with Bowden on his basic commands. Bowden LOVES toys, enjoys long walks and does very well on car rides. He is a very active and a bit high energy. Bowden will be attending events. Watch our website for a opportunity to meet this happy boy. UPDATE: Bowden is fairly social with strangers and can be okay with other dogs with proper leash management. However, he does not need the presence of another ... (Read More)dog and would thrive as an only dog. While Bowden does like toys, he tends to claim them and does not easily give them up. As training is required, Bowden's adopters should begin training soon after adopting to help lay the groundwork for a healthy foundation. He is treat motivated and rides well in the vehicle. From what we have seen, he does not like cold weather, rain, snow or wind and he would rather be inside where it's comfy rather than outside exploring. (Less)

He has been treated for the heartworms and is now on preventative and treated for the intestinal parasites. He is up to a good weight and feeling pretty good, but he would really love to spend his time with a special person in a home instead of in a shelter. Buddy is extremely affectionate and loving and would be fine with people of all sizes. He loves to play in the dog park but always gravitates back to the person there with him. Buddy would love a ...

German Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Sable is a 3 year old German Shepherd Dog that was surrendered to a shelter in NC because she killed chickens. Sable should be in an only dog home or placed with experience with the breed. Her compatibility will totally depend on the other dog in the home. She 'guards' her humans against other dogs and demands lots of attention. Sable can be dominant with other dogs. She is good with kids. Her need to seek attention may be too much for little ones. With some training and proper boundaries, Sable will be an incredible dog. We believe she would take to obedience training and/or other dog sports with ease. Cats are not recommended. Sable's ... (Read More)adoption fee includes spay surgery if not completed by adoption.

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Benji is a 2-3 year old Belgian Malinois mix. He was rescued from a shelter just over a year ago after being bounced around his entire young life. He is an 80lb goofball who likes to lick and is very mouthy(a behavior common to the breed). He loves his family, is great with my 4 and 6 year old kids, although he sometimes forgets how big he is. Benji loves the outdoors and is a very active dog who needs daily exercise and mental stimulation. He definitely needs a loving, firm male hand to make him mind his manners.. which need some work. While he was socialized with other dogs at the shelter he was in, he has not had much socialization in the ... (Read More)last year. He definitely has a strong prey drive, so smaller animals will be a no. The only signs of aggression he has ever shown were with large, 'very furry' dogs like Akita and Husky breeds. Any other dogs will need to be introduced before adoption. Benji is very healthy, no known health problems, and his immunizations are all up to date. He is housebroken, can go 13 hours if he must! This big puppy is a chicken when it comes to trimming his nails. We are still trying to perfect that process, as the vet's office will only do it if I let them sedate him. Benji has his own kennel, blanket, toys, leashes, collars, food storage and bowls. If you have never owned a Belgian Malinois THEY ARE NOT A GOOD FIRST DOG/PET. Please email me if you are interested!

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Our Valentines Day present to Sage was her freedom ride out of the shelter. She arrived in rescue a broken soul, almost like she had given up on life along with very poor skin condition, scabs all over her body. Since in rescue her foster reports: Sage is coming out of her shell since arriving here from South Carolina. Her body is evidence of the hard life she has lived, but despite it all she is a sweet and gentle dog. Sage is so excited to see me when I get home from work. The once shy girl greets me with a wagging tail and kisses. She is enjoying having a safe and warm home for the first time in her life most likely. She is also ... (Read More)enjoying eating and gaining weight each day. We are currently working on potty training. She seems to be doing well and learned the routines quickly. We are also working on basic commands such a sit, down, drop-it, and off. Sage is good with other dogs, but would do great as an only dog in a household too. Her foster brother has a bit too much energy for her, but he has taught her how to play with some toys. Sage is so deserving of a fur-ever home and she will quickly make you fall in love with her'|I know I have. (Less)

Jonesy is a little nervous when he is around new people but especially men and small children. We are working with him on this. If you are looking for a dog to be a playmate for your dog, Jonesy's your man, he loves to play with other dogs.

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)

Won't you come meet me? I know we can be BFF's if you give me the chance.
