Rescue Me ID: 17-06-21-00104Maverick (male)

German Shepherd    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered 

    Maverick is a young German shepherd who appears to be from an unknown working line. Maverick was found abandoned and after 5 days being seen alone was picked up by concerned people. He was kept on stray hold for a week and no one stepped up to claim him so he was pulled into foster care. Maverick appears to be a very happy go lucky puppy, about 7-8 months old. He's been great with kids (as young as 2) and is doing well with his doggie housemates (small and large dogs). Maverick's downfall is that he's an energetic puppy with no manners or training. So any potential adopter would need experience working with and/or owning a high energy ... (Read More)working breed. Maverick will make an exceptional companion for the right home. Please contact me for more information. Be sure to include information about yourself and your suitability for adopting Maverick! (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Lucy is a BIG goofball. She came into the high kill shelter with her son Linus. (He has been adopted) She was rescued on her kill day. She LOVES everyone and does well with other dogs with proper introduction. She loves to play and loves attention. She is BIG and strong. Hasn't had much training that we can see, so someone with a little experience would fit well with her. She is very willing to please.. We estimate her around 2 years old, roughly 70lbs. She needs to fill out some, so will be bigger, probably around 100lbs. She is spay, current on all shots, heartworm negative, started on heartworm preventative, and flea and tick ... (Read More)meds. Would really make a great pet.. Her adoption fee is $175.00 (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Senior

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

    Gladys just arrived a few days ago and is settling in to her foster home. Foster mom says she is doing so well. She is sweet and friendly. She was even very friendly on her first vet visit, and greeted everyone very nicely. She has some skin issues to clear up, and she needs to get a little healthier before we can spay her. Stay tuned for more information from Gladys's foster mom as they get to know her. We think she will be ready for adoption in about a month.

    This is Cosmo. He is a sweet dog who needs a firm hand. He is just a big puppy and has lots of energy to expend. He needs room to run and would love to have his own home and space to do that. He has words with other dogs in their kennels but once he is outside and gets rid of some of his energy he calms down. Won't you come meet this handsome boy and see for yourself what a great companion he would make?

He will crate but hasn't been trained and doesn't like it. he is a young puppy yet. his issue is that he likes to chew. this is nothing unusual for a puppy his age and expected i would think. he will take some time with that issue and from what i am getting. his chewing is blankets and pillows. i have a dog that does this as well and she is almost sucking on the blankets and chews holes. i wonder if he isn't doing the same from being taken from mom to early. he is a great dog and would make a great family pet. he ...

    Allie is young and very sweet. She begs for attention. she is great with other dogs and is great with people and does well with my 12 year old son. Allie spent the day in the office with me today and she is really a great dog. she gets along with anyone coming in and she is calm and lays at my feet and just loves you. She crates but once being crated when she comes out of the crate she jumps begging for attention. Once she has been out of the crate for a period of time, she is fine and just wants you to love on her. She is really really sweet. you can tell that she has never had attention. once she gets your attention, she calms down ... (Read More)and seems okay. she loves food and will just beg for it. she is not food aggressive but you can tell she has been hungry at some point. she needs to learn some basic manners. i do not think she has spent much time in a house. she is not house trained and lacks some manners with jumping up on things most in search of food. She needs to learn some household manners but nothing bad just paws on counter and things like that. she is just so sweet and just wants to please so desperately. she will make a great companion. I had to give her a bath last night and she did so well getting a bath. she stood and let me wash her down. she is so sweet. (Less)

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids)

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This is such a great dog! Everyday she takes all of her toys - lovingly cared for - from her crate to her bed for the day, and every night she loads them into her crate for the night. Even though at some point she lost one eye, and her owner died and she found herself on death row, she remains sweet and loving. She is doing great at her foster, but she is ready to have a human to call her own. Maybe that could be you! Please take a chance to meet this sweetheart soon!

Animal ID: 2017-010Jack (male)

German Shepherd    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Jack is about 15 months old. He's neutered. He's been to the vet and is now current on vaccines. Jack is what happens when you buy a cute little German Shepherd puppy and then don't do any training with him in the first year of his life. He's very friendly and sociable, but he has absolutely no manners. Actually he has a lot of bad manners. He does seem to be ok with being crated, however, and he's certainly fine with other large dogs. He will like any dog who will like him back; the others he will just leave alone. Jack's only goal in life is to play, play, and then play some more. He's very jumpy, somewhat mouthy, but never mean or ... (Read More)aggressive about it, he's just a wild child. He can get over a 4' fence quite easily and he can climb and scramble over a 6' chain link fence. Jack loves the water and he loves to run after a tennis ball, although he's not inclined to give it back. He's going to take some work, he's not for a first time shepherd owner, but he's got the potential to make someone a really great dog. (Less)

    Lucy came to me as an owner surrender from a high kill shelter out of North Carolina. She is very lovable and calm. It's very surprising to see a dog of this age as calm as she is. I had advertised her and then i thought it was possible that she was pregnant so we pulled her back off. She is not pregnant and will be spayed next week. she has now been with me a few weeks and she hasnt changed. Sweet gentle loving calm loves attention. She would be okay as an only dog but would prefer a playmate. she is not an alpha dog. She is house trained if you have a yard. she will not go to the bathroom on a leash but will if let out in a yard. ... (Read More)that is changeable. i can't say enough about how sweet this baby is. she loves to sleep with you. loves to be with you. amazing. she is not good with cats but i think with some work she could be trained to leave them alone. she really does not like cats and would be best in a home without them i think.

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Senior

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

    UPDATE: Cinnamon was adopted, but through no fault of her own, was returned. At her new home, she became cat savvy, and pretty much ignores them now! Cinnamon loves most anyone who will show her some affection, and will quickly 'lean in' to show her appreciation. She craves attention, likes to run and play with other dogs, has mat a cat or two, and a few children. She did well with all of the above, though the children clearly had been taught how to meet a strange dog for the first time, and the cat was pretty laid back and did not run from her. if a cat runs, it will get a VERY big, up close and personal, WOOF! This girl is STRONG, but ... (Read More)does pretty well on a leash, especially after you get away from the house. She would definitely benefit from someone who will spend some time with some basic training. You are never too old to learn. She loves to go for a ride and will definitely show her excitement if she thinks you are going to take her, or thinks you should! If you reach for her leash (or she thinks you are), she is ready to go! She is smart and knows how to 'sit at the table' before receiving her dinner. Unfortunately, her desire to be 'right next to her person' is greater than her desire to learn to 'go lay down'. Cinnamon has a prescription for Proin. She would not be described as incontinent, but does seem to have a tiny leak occasionally. She regularly goes outside to potty, but if she has a long nap, she can sometimes (not always) drip just a little. She doesn't have any issues when on her prescription. A quiet, more laid back environment would be more suitable for this sweet girl. In the evening, you might find her sprawled out on the sofa next to you, or at your feet, but either way, you can bet she will be near you. She is loving and loyal, and will bond very quickly to the one who is just right for her! She is highly food motivated and a treat for her would be to lick some yogurt from the spoon . . . okay, or to lick anything from a spoon, or your hand, or her plate! Cinnamon is good when left alone in the house, is potty-trained, has been fully-vetted and is on HW preventative. Questions concerning the adoption process should be directed to Peaceful Passings.

    I just can't say enough about this puppy. He is so full of love. he loves attention and loves to play. he has some energy but he is not crazy energetic. he is so sweet. he is crate trained. he does well in the house but will mark once in a while which he will get out of once he finds his forever home. he loves people and would do well around older children. i say older only because he could knock over a young child unintentionally. he loves to play with other dogs. he is an alpha male so he would need to be in a home with a submissive non alpha dog. having said that he listens well. he comes when you call him. he will sit with ... (Read More)some prompting. he is so bright. he would make a great pet for someone. i have not cat exposed him. my guess is he will chase cats but is not the aggressive cat killer and could be trained to live with a cat. his smile will light up your day. he wants to be a part of a family and sleep by the bed. He is utd on shots, chipped and is neutered. This is an all around good puppy that will make a great family addition. He will stand well for a bath and doesn't seem to mind it. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-11-29-00223Kuma (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Kuma is an approximately 3 year old female Akita mix. She is up to date on all of her shots, microchipped, heartworm negative and is spayed. She has a lot of energy to burn and would benefit from a very active home that can both physically and mentally exercise her. She is very smart and picks things up quickly. She knew a few commands when she arrived; sit, down, stay, shake, other paw and high five. Kuma is a very vocal girl; she will talk to you, she howl at the sirens, talks back to you and generally just loves the sound of her voice while she is awake. :) I suspect there is some German Shepherd in her somewhere, she is an ... (Read More)excellent protector of the home and yard and will let anyone know when she sees or hears something that may be amiss. She is ball driven and will bring the ball back to you most of the time. Kuma has perfect manners in the house, is crate trained but does not need the crate. When I have left her loose, she was found either on a dog bed or laying in her crate with its door open. Not a single thing touched that she shouldn't mess with. To adopt Kuma, I will need a personal and vet reference, there will be a home visit during the meet/greet with her and her potential family and also a contract. She loves being with her people and can be quite affectionate when she wants to be. A home with very young kids or small animals would not be ideal for her, older kids and where she would be the only pet would be her best placement. (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered 

    My name is Rex and I am a chained dog. Yep, it's every bit as bad as it sounds. Look into my soulful eyes and you can see how I dream to be part of a family like the little dogs who live at my house. You see, when I was a puppy, I lived inside, but as I grew, my caregiver decided to make me an 'outside dog.' I didn't want to be an 'outside dog,' but now, for my 3 years of living, that is the life I have led. I am an optimist, and I have made the most of my life, giving kisses to those who visit me. I waggle and show them what a good boy I can be if only I can move into a home with a family. I dream of that every minute of every day. ... (Read More)THAT DAY HAS ARRIVED. My friends at Radford Pound Pals now have 'ownership' of me and are looking for my perfect new home! They are seeking an experienced dog family who can be patient with me. I want to learn and I want to please, but I may not understand all of the rules at first. See, there are no rules on the chain except surviving. My special friend next door loves me and works on training me every day and brags on how smart I am. She thinks I am a Shepherd/Lab mix and also tells me how handsome I am. I am also neutered, current on vaccines and HW/Lyme negative. Please, if you are interested in me joining your family, write my friends at pals@psknet.com for an application. (Less)

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)
