Facts about Angel-Updated Bio

  • Breed: German Shepherd Dog Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Angel was found after being hit by a car. We were asked to rescue this poor girl and over time she has fully recovered from her injuries. She is coming along very nicely and bonding with her foster mom. However, with anyone new, she still runs from them until she has time to get to know them. She gets very excited when she sees the volunteer who comes out weekly to walk the dogs and has warmed up to some volunteers after only two visits. That is a lot of progress for this sweet girl.

She loves to play with all the dogs and has a great little personality. She is sneaky at times and will wait by the other dog's crates and go in to steal their treats if she feels they don't eat them in time. She has never had a problem with any of the friendly dogs she meets. She is not pushy or hyper so she would make a great quiet house companion.

Name: Angel
Age: 1-2 yrs. old
Gender: Female
Mix/Purebred: Small shepherd mix
Weight: 40-50 lbs.
Housetrained: 99%
Crate trained: crate trained but enjoys being out and can be trusted
Heartworm Negative/Positive: Negative
Spayed/Neutered: Spayed
Micro chipped: Yes
Good with other dogs: Yes, playful
Good with cats: Doesn't seem to mind foster cat
Good with children: Timid with all people

We feel like she would be ideal for a small family or single person who works from home with whom she can bond with without having to share affection or worry about new people coming and going. She needs a very calm home. She might even work best in an apartment setting where the home was not too big and she could be closer to her person without feeling overwhelmed by large spaces. She would enjoy having a furry friend who could show her what trust and relaxation looks like. She needs someone who can understand her limits and is extremely patient. They also need to understand that fearful dogs work on their timeline and not any one person's. She is totally capable of bonding with a new owner ( like she has with her foster mom), taking walks together, and she enjoys being petted after she learns to trust you. She wants to be a lap dog but she doesn't realize how much she has grown. She is a medium size dog who weighs about 45-50 lbs.

Angel had a really rough start in life. She has not had any applications on her since she came to rescue so if you feel like you might be right for her needs please apply and come out and meet her.

Our Mission

German Shepherd Rescue of Central Texas strives to save German Shepherds and German Shepherd mixes from neglect, abuse, and premature death. We give rescued
dogs a chance to have the good life they deserve through rescue, adoption, referrals, and behavior counseling. We do not sell dogs. We adopt intelligent, sensitive beings
into homes where their personalities and potential will be valued.

German Shepherd Rescue of Central Texas is a non-profit organization run by volunteers. Equipment and supplies are purchased using the personal funds of our
volunteers, or are donated or purchased using contributions and adoption fees. If you would like to contribute, please read about how you can help.

Our Adoption Process...


This adoption donation helps to recover a least part of the cost of shelter release fees, spay/neuter, de-worming, shots, and other vet bills as well as food, and flea/heart worm preventative. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered before adoption, are current on all shots, and on heart worm preventative. Additional contributions are gratefully accepted.
