Gizmo's Story...

Weight: 20 Pounds/ 60 Pounds Full Grown
Good with Dogs: Yes
Good with Cats: Yes
Good with Kids: Yes
Energy Level: PUPPY
Crate Trained: Yes

First of all, keep him out of the light, he hates bright light, especially sunlight, it'll kill him. Second, don't give him any water, not even to drink. But the most important rule, the rule you can never forget, no matter how much he cries, no matter how much he begs, never feed him after midnight. - from 'Gremlins'

YES, we all know where the popular name Gizmo comes from that adorable, good natured Mogwai, who refused to become an evil gremlin. Thankfully as a puppy, our Gizmo will thrive in the sunshine, is easily bathed, and it is perfectly okay to sneak him a snack after midnight should you both be up. Gizmo is a 4 month old tan Shepherd mix weighing in at a healthy 20 pounds. Foster mom says he has some pretty big paws to fill, so he will probably end up being around 60 pounds when full grown.

Gizmo is very loyal, eager to please, very smart, and easy to train. Gizmo presents all of these desired traits, even as a youngster. He currently resides in a foster home on a farm where he has had exposure to a variety of farm animals, all of which he has done well with. He gets along wonderfully with the other dogs and cats in the home as well. Gizmo isn't really into playing fetch just yet, but he very much enjoys chewing on toy ropes and balls. He has already mastered some basic commands such as sit, down, and shake. He is a dream on and off leash when accompanying his person. Foster mom says he walks with her in the yard and heels at her feet when she stops. Pretty smart little guy right there!

Gizmo loves to go for rides in the car or truck. He quietly lays down and just enjoys going on the journey. His foster mom says he is not a barker or a jumper. He does love to run around a bit and play like any puppy would but when it's time to settle down he's all about being a well behaved boy. Gizmo is crate trained and sleeps through the night in his crate. He is doing very well with house training, but still needs frequent trips outside for potty.

Gizmo has all the attributes of a wonderful life long companion. He is already neutered, up to date on all vaccinations, and current on all preventatives. We just need to add one more little excerpt from Gremlins right here.....Grandfather: [leaving with Gizmo, to Billy] Perhaps some day, you will be ready. Until then, Mogwai waits. We hope you ARE ready to give our sweet little Gizmo the loving forever home he should have had all along. Until then.....he waits.

PUPPIES GROW INTO the expectations of their families through consistent love, caring and training. Puppies cannot be adopted to homes where they are left unattended for more that 3-4 hours.

PLEASE REMEMBER: The specific breed of any dog abandoned to
shelter is the best guess by seasoned rescuers in accord with our veterinarians.

Unless otherwise indicated, all Double Dog Rescue dogs have received the following before being available for adoption:

Thorough veterinary examination

All routine annual vaccinations, including Rabies, DHLPP, Bordatella (kennel cough), Heartworm Test, Fecal Test, Deworming


All dogs are quarantined for two weeks outside of the shelter (puppies four weeks) to ensure they don't break with disease.

If any dog shows any signs of disease or ailment, DDR vets the dog until he or she has a clean bill of health to the best of our knowledge. This includes anything from being treated for Heartworm, Broken Leg, Cherry Eye, Torn ACL, Upper Respiratory etc.)

NOTE: Dogs who were treated for Heartworm can test positive up to 4-6 months after last treatment. All dogs are immediately put on Heartguard/Ivermectin following the treatment to kill the Heartworm larvae. All dogs should be re-tested after 4 months from the last Heartworm treatment.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gizmo, a Pawling German Shepherd Dog/Shepherd (Unknown Type) puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog/Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Pawling, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog/Shepherd (Unknown Type) puppy from a breeder in Pawling.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Pawling already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Pawling breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even German Shepherd Dog/Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog/Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Pawling paves the way for another one to be saved.
