Flower is a very sweet 2 year old girl. She is awesome with kids and other animals (other than what is listed below). She does chase the cats on occasion, but never tries to hurt them, only plays. She is a little shy at first, but so very sweet. The main problem with her is, she is very rambunctious and rowdy with our children. She is constantly jumping up on them, scratching them, knocking them down, etc. I know she doesn't mean to, she just wants to play. I've had her to a trainer and it did help for a while, but then it all went back downhill. I will admit, that it is my fault. I do not have the time to train her properly, and keep at it. I love her very much, but she spends a lot of time in her crate, and it's not right. I want her to be with people who can take more time than I have to spend with her and teach her. I know she can be a great dog! (Less)

Hello, my name is Savanna. I am desperately searching for help with a German Shepherd. About 5 years ago, I adopted a German Shepherd puppy that was rescued from a so called 'puppy mill' operation. His name is Scout. He was about 3 or 4 months old when he came to me. I was apprehensive at first in taking him in, but willing to help. I noticed right off the bat that he was very scared and would bark nervously at strangers. He became very close to me, I was with him everyday and gave him the utmost home to live in. A month or so after I got him, we moved to Georgia, my husband was stationed there in the army. Scout seemed to be great with us, but was very territorial when people came over and would not let them through the front door. This happened on a daily basis. It was so bad that I had to crate him until visitors would leave for fear of him biting them or worse. Another one of his issues that we discovered is that children make him nervous. When he would see a child or hear them talk or make noises he would start to bark his nervous bark, which led us to keep him away from kids. I've talked to several vets about his issues and they've all told me this could be from over breeding from the puppy mill. While in Georgia I got with a couple dog trainers and went through their set up programs with him, but they never really made a difference in his problems. We have since moved back to WV. Our home now is extremely small so we had a 20x30 raised kennel made for him outside. The reason I am contacting you for help today is that last year we had a baby girl. My husband is very very scared that someday he may hurt her or worse since he is very anxious around children. We don't allow him to be anywhere near her anytime. We currently are moving and the new place doesn't allow animals. I hate the idea of re-homing him, but I have no choice. And given his issues, I can't have just anyone adopt him. I am in desperate need of someone who knows how to handle dogs like Scout and give him the proper attention he needs. If you or someone you know could help me, PLEASE let me know! Thank you and God bless! (Less)

Kelly is about 1 or 2; she was running stray for a week or so before allowing a family to bring her in. She is house trained,very mild mannered and loving.; she walks well on leash. We are guessing at the breeds, her ears stand straight up, but she's shorter and stocky.????? Very nice girl.

|Rescue Me ID: 14-03-08-00214Loki (male)|
Loki is a german shepherd mix, but we're unsure of what other breed(s) he has in him. He's incredibly playful, full of energy, and adores attention. The home we previously lived in was recently condemned, forcing us to move hastily, and where we now reside he barks consistently when put outside. Loki IS mostly housebroken, but has more or less been an outside dog. We've been told that in order for us to stay, we must rehome this dog as soon as possible. Good with kids, adults, other dogs, and is iffy with cats. He doesn't seem to want to hurt them, but doesn't understand that he's too large to pounce on them without scaring them. Contact me for anymore information via the settings tab. Thanks. (Less)
