JUNO is a stunning young all-black GSD, who's sure to steal your heart in a quick second!  

A quick snapshot of JUNO:
  • Approximate weight: 72lbs
  • Fence needs: Securely fenced yard REQUIRED.
  • Owner type: Juno is a strong-willed girl who requires very strong leadership, consistency and follow-through.  At this young age, she is already testing her very experienced foster family on a daily basis! Daily rigorous exercise required (treadmill running is one example).  Juno also has been diagnosed with Epilepsy / seizures, and will require a lifetime of daily medications.
  • Favorite activity: Fetching a ball.
  • Activity level: High
  • Other animals: So far, Juno does well with other large breed dogs as well as cats, but small dogs will need further testing.
  • Kids: Unknown, will need to be tested.
Juno is quite a delight and is adored by her foster mom.  We're told this sweet girl was never socialized outside of her previous owner's home.   She was terrified of just about everything when she first came in, but she's already making great progress in foster home, thanks to her fantastic foster mom!

Juno is incredibly smart!  Since she lived with other dogs previously, there 
MUST be another social dog in the home to help provide her with some comfort and to be a role model for her as well. With time and proper socialization, she'll be rarin' to go on all sorts of new adventures!

DOGS:    Yes!  MUST HAVE a doggie buddy of similar size in her forever home.
CATS:     Yes, but needs good supervision.  Juno doesn't intend to harm a cat, but she does want to play with it.
KIDS:     Yes
IDEAL FAMILY:   A loving, active family who will provide the proper 'upbringing' for the next year or two -- i.e., training, leadership, boundaries, rules, guidance and TONS OF LOVE and snuggles and exercise. 

If you're looking for a super-smart German Shepherd
for your lifetime companion,
JUNO might be the girl of your dreams!

This fee covers only part of what we spend to vet, board and rehab the dogs we save.  On average we spend over $450 on each dog.  We made a decision to keep our adoption fee at the 2005 level even though vet prices have doubled and tripled since then.  We are constantly fundraising to cover the deficit.  At minimum, your adoption fee includes the dog's spay/neuter, heartworm test, heartworm treatment if needed, rabies shot, distemper/parvo shot, bordatella shot, deworming, monthly heartworm and flea preventives, and microchip.  In many cases it also includes surgery and various types of vet treatment for standard issues such as hot spots, ear infections and so on.

  1. We're picky about our adopters!  GSDs are not for everyone.  They demand  lots of time/effort/training.  They shed all year round and are big and scare lots of people.  They 'mouth' and are usually strong-willed and stubborn.  You have to have references and a home visit.  If you're not willing/able to deal with any of this, please don't waste your time applying.  
  2. All MoGS dogs must be inside family pets. We do not adopt to outdoor only homes.
  3. You have to put your dog indoors (NOT in the yard) when you're not home.  One adopted MoGS dog died after the owners left to run errands, left her outdoors, someone opened the gate, and she was hit by a car.  Privacy fences have been broken into, gates have been opened, thieves have stolen dogs. NEVER leave your dog outdoors when you're not home!!
  4. You're required to make a lifetime commitment.  Only you can make sure the dog is safe, loved and cared for, for life. The minute you adopt, that responsibility is yours.
  5. Are you unable or unwilling to make a lifetime commitment? Do not apply.
  6. What's your plan for unexpected events and major changes?  New baby? Divorce?  Moving?   How you will provide for your dog if your family breaks up?  If you move?  If you have a child?
  7. You're making a lifetime commitment to a MOGS Dog.   We expect you to keep it!  It's YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to stick by your family member -- no matter what.
