Facts about Jade

  • Breed: Rottweiler/German Shepherd Dog Mix
  • Color: Black - With Brown, Red, Golden, Orange Or Chestnut
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Jade is a beautiful girl estimated around 5-6 years of age and believed to be a shepherd X Rottweiler mix. Jade was originally a stray in the Louisville area who was picked up by a Good Samaritan. They were unable to keep her though and surrendered her to the shelter. Unfortunately we do not know much about Jade's life prior to arriving with us.

When Jade first arrived she was very wound up and insecure. Without proper guidance she had been allowed to develop inappropriate behavior such as food aggression and being overly protective of people. With structure and exercise Jade has decompressed and become a sweet, loving, and loyal girl. She adores people and children. She enjoys getting attention from people and values herself as a large lap dog.

Jade is being fostered with other dogs but mostly keeps to herself. She enjoys pretending she is an agility dog during walks through the woods and will run laps jumping trees. It is highly amusing! She doesn't often play with the other dogs but she coexists well. Jade has been introduced to cats on once occasion and did really well. She was more focused on the people and very unconcerned with the cat. This isn't to say that she is cat friendly but with proper introduction and guidance we think Jade would do well in a home with cats.

Jade is a sweet and active girl searching for a family to love and play with. She would make a great companion for hiking or possibly agility. Above all she makes a great snuggle companion.

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.
