Facts about Chuck

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog Mix
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Chuck is an adorable Lab Shepherd mix who is estimated around 2 years of age. Chuck was found running in a rural county and unfortunately no one claimed him. Because he was a stray we do not have any history on his life prior to arriving in our care.

Chuck has two moods: asleep and wild child. He is an extremely active and energetic boy. Chuck loves to run, wrestle, play with toys, and anything else he can get into. He is a very happy and fun-loving boy. He has been great with everyone he has met however he lacks basic manners. Chuck REALLY loves people and he wants to show them that... by kissing them... and hugging them. He is very over the top with his energy and needs a family that understands this aspect of him. He has been around children (4 years and up) with no problems but again he lacks basic manners and can accidently knock a child down. Chuck is really a very sweet boy and likes to cuddle once he is done playing.

Chuck has been fostered with other dogs and has had no issues. He will play with the other dogs on occasion but he tends to prefer his toys over the other dogs. Unless they are playing a game of chase in which case he loves to run and will be right in the middle of it. When he first arrived he didn't seem to know how to interact with other dogs and he is still learning really. The more time he is around the other dogs the more play skills he picks up. He doesn't have an overly dominate personality however he isn't a submissive dog either. He tends to avoid conflict with the other dogs but he won't back down if a dog picks on him either. Chuck loves water! He will chase a water hose if given the chance and he is a swimmer also.

Chuck is a great boy who will make an amazing companion for an active home. He will need training and someone who understands his energy level. Chuck is eagerly awaiting his fur-ever home and the adventures you will share!

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 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 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.
