Torro is a stunning 6 year old german shepherd who found himself at the Lexington Humane Society when his owner no longer had time for him. Torro didn’t do well at the Humane Society and was showing anxiety issues there. Torro is still a very energetic boy still and very talkative in all things. Torro is a very sweet boy who loves to play with toys and be active. In his foster home Torro is friendly with new people and is especially loving of anyone who will toss the toy for him. Torro is also friendly with other dogs his size but is not an overly playful dog. He seems to prefer playing with toys and people rather than other dogs. Currently Torro has not been tested with small dogs or cats however given his toy drive he likely would not do well. Torro does wonderful with children but again is very high energy so he can sometimes forget his size when excited. Overall, Torro is a beautiful and friendly boy searching for his fur-ever home.

About Tier Haven Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Tier Haven Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit animal rescue agency based in Louisville, KY that specializes in German Shepherds and similar working breeds. Tier Haven realizes that many German Shepherd Dogs (GSDs) find themselves in shelters due to a lack of training and understanding of the breed. Tier Haven is a no-kill rescue which limits the number of dogs we can care for at any given time for this reason Tier Haven focuses on taking dogs from shelters that are in direct risk of euthanasia and has a separate policy for owner surrenders.

Surrender Policy

Tier Haven accepts owner surrenders on a conditional basis due to the large number of dogs in kill shelters. If you have a dog you would like to surrender you must email pictures and the reason for surrendering to Tierhavenrescue@aol.com. Tier Haven does charge a fee for surrendering a dog; $80 for a fully vetted dog (vaccinations, alter, heartworm test) when vet records are provided and $150 for un-vetted dogs.

Our Adoption Process...

Tier Haven requires an adoption application to be completed and processed prior to meeting or adopting any of our dogs. As a completely foster based organization Tier Haven relies on the application to help ensure that adopters are only meeting dogs that are suitable for their household based on various factors. The application is completed via email and you may email us at Tierhavenrescue@aol.com to obtain an application. When submitting an application please contact your vet clinic and provide them with a release of information and also inform your personal references that they will be contacted.

Once your application is processed you will be contacted by a volunteer to discuss potential dogs and arrange a meet and greet. Since we are a foster based group we only allow up to three (3) dogs on each meet and greet to keep it manageable for everyone. Meet and greets are often held at public locations to respect the privacy of our foster homes and they are scheduled at the discretion of the foster homes.

Tier Haven charges an adoption fee of $250 for each dog. This includes spay/neuter, vaccinations, heart-worm test, micro-chip, and monthly preventative care while with our organization. All medical records are provided at the time of adoption along with an adoption contract.
