Meet Zena Zena is a pretty young black and tan german shepherd puppy. (birth date 4-3-09) She is great with children and has graduated from puppy class but is quite shy. She needs more socialization and confidence building in new situations and with new people, especially those visiting her home. This will be most easily accomplished first with fun trips to petco and petsmart, and thru group training classes, where she will learn to meet new people. Then gradually get her accustomed to welcoming your visitors in your home.
Zena is crate trained, though she does not need it anymore since she is reliably house broken. (In other words, she will not chew or make any messes.) She gets along well with cats and wants to herd them and play gently. She knows SIT, DOWN, and LEAVE IT, walks well on a leash, loves playing ball and absolutely adores frisbee!
As with ALL GERMAN SHEPHERDS we strongly encourage the new adoptive family to enroll the dog in an obedience class to facilitate bonding and help with the transformation into the best dog you've ever had.
If you are interested in adopting a new family member from our organization, please complete the online adoption application. It is the first step to bringing home your new family member.
All dogs listed as ADOPTABLE are indeed still available. Matching the right dog with the right family sometimes takes a while, so your patience is appreciated. Our adoption fees are: $300 for any dog 1 year and younger (BABY) $250 for any dog 1-3 years (YOUNG) $200 for any dog 3-7 years (ADULT) $150 for dogs over 7 (SENIOR)
The adoption fee helps cover expenses for the dogs while in the rescue program including the vet check, vaccines, heartworm testing, stool check, spay/neuter , microchip, plus other necessary veterinary care and training to get the dog ready for adoption.
Everyone must submit an application before an appointment is made to meet the dogs. We are not a shelter, but a network of foster homes. Therefore there is no one central location where multiple dogs can be viewed. We work BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.
