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.

Jade absolutely adores people. She can be a bit over-friendly when first meeting new people but she simply loves everyone. Jade views herself as a lap dog and loves to get belly-rubs and any other attention someone might provide. She is great with children and is an all over love-bug.

Jade is fostered with other dogs however she is a very dominate personality. Jade is a jealous dog and does not share attention well although she knows she is supposed to. When told to behave Jade has no problem with other dogs but if a new visitor lets her slip she will push boundaries. Jade will guard food from other dogs but not people. Feeding her in her crate eliminates the "competition" for her and is much more peaceful. Jade is not inherently aggressive or reactive with dogs however her dominance would be an issue with another dominant dog. Jade does best with indifferent or submissive dogs. Simply put Jade is a pushy queen bee who doesn't like that challenged.

Jade has been around cats on multiple occasions and done extremely well. She doesn't seem to have any worries about the cats and is much more focused on any people who are around.

Although Jade is a mature adult she is still very energetic and enjoys romping in the woods at her foster home. She is an athletic girl and would do really well in a home with a moderate jogger or a hiker. Jade has a lot of love to give to anyone who is willing to understand her quirks. She is great in the house, loves to ride in the car, and has been waiting a long time for a home to call her own.

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.
