Meet HEIDI

HEIDI is a six-month-old German Shepherd Dog mix puppy. She currently weighs 40 lbs and should mature to 60+ lbs. She (and all her littermates) came to us when the family became overwhelmed with 6 growing puppies. We currently have her in a great foster home where she's making the transition from outside to inside living. She's been introduced to a crate and leash. She's great with the other dogs in the home and happy for the canine companionship! We have started to see glimpses of prey drive, so we are aiming for a home without cats or small dogs.

German Shepherds are a "working breed," so our recommendation will be older children only.

Her ideal home will be an active home. A fenced in yard is needed. As she grows, her size and energy level will be well beyond the scope of leash walking. She is the perfect candidate for obedience training. German Shepherds are very intelligent dogs with a strong work ethic. They are usually not a good fit for the casual dog owner. They need plenty of time outside the home to build their social skills. They need plenty of mental stimulation to keep them focused on good manners and composure. They make excellent companions if you have the time to dedicate to them. (Heidi's father is in our program and is currently in our Paws Behind Bars training program. He is full German Shepherd. Her mother is a Hound/Shepherd mix so we're confident of Heidi's breed mix.)

IMPORTANT: Please Keep in mind both the age and life expectancy of the dog. Our guiding principle for adoptions is to seek the right fit for our rescues and the families, including a home that can stay committed to the animal for life.

PLEASE NOTE:  If you’re interested in adopting, our process begins with the submission of our online application, or email us if you submitted an application within the last six months.  We review and schedule meet and greets (with approved applicants only) based on the order received.

Please see our FAQ page for the answers to any other questions you might have regarding the adoption process.
