Abraham's Story...
Abraham is a handsome sable shepherd estimated around 6 years of age. Abraham came to Tier Haven over a year ago for rehab at 40 lbs and hairless. Abraham had been extremely neglected and was covered in mange. He has had a long road to recovery but he now has a clean bill of health and is ready for a family of his own.

Abraham is an extremely goofy dog. Goofy and aloof are the best ways to describe him. Abraham is very loving with people and adores children. Abraham is very good about meeting new people and goes along with pretty much anything. Abraham does get along with other dogs but he lacks social skills. He will bark at the other dogs for no reason other than to bark. He doesn't fight - he has no desire to fight - he just has no idea how to play either. His fellow foster dogs are used to him and he has learned how to interact with them on a day to day basis. If things get rowdy though he will start barking again. Abraham has been around an adult cat who has learned to ignore his antics also. He will stand and bark at her but never makes a move to harm her. She is very dog savvy and when she is tired of him she finds a hiding spot and Abraham quickly forgets she exists. While he isn't dangerous to cats he is not aware of proper behavior around one either and would need patience and guidance.

Abraham is a very special boy to me (his foster) since we have spent so much time working to regain his health. While he is physically healthy Abraham has made a habit of mentally disconnecting from his body. The pain he endured prior to coming to us forced him into this coping mechanism and we are still working to overcome this. Many of his quirks come from this disconnection and we have found that when we utilize Young Living Essential Oils many habits - like the barking - subside. Abraham enjoys Raindrop Messages with essential oils and simply getting to smell various oils. I think these oils which have been used through his whole journey with us act as a tether back to his body and help him stop disconnecting. I sincerely hope his future home is open to continuing Abrahams oils as they have made such in impact in his emotional wellbeing and health journey.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Abraham, a Louisville German Shepherd Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog for sale in Louisville, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Louisville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Louisville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Louisville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even German Shepherd Dog breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Louisville paves the way for another one to be saved.
