Facts about Becker

  • Breed: Dutch Shepherd/German Shepherd Dog Mix
  • Color: Brindle
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Becker is a beautifully unique boy around 7 years of age. Becker was originally with Tier Haven in 2012 and found what we thought was his 'fur-ever' home a year later in 2013. Unfortunately, we can't always predict the behavior of people and his owners abruptly abandoned him just after the new year. Becker was heartbroken however he has now set his sights on finding a new home that won't abandon him.

Becker is a wonderful and well-behaved boy. Becker is a pretty energetic boy and still very athletic. He can jump fences as high as 7 foot and has been known to do so if left unattended. Becker enjoys having a job and needs a home that will give him plenty of exercise. He is a firm believer that you are only as old as you let yourself be. Becker does well with other dogs 30 lbs and above. He has not been around smaller dogs however he is not cat friendly therefore we suspect that would also lead to him not being small dog friendly.

Becker loves people! He is very friendly and enjoys being around 'his people'. Becker has been around children his whole life and does great with them. He is used to being an indoor family dog and is very loyal to his family.

Becker is searching for a loving home that understands his breed and exercise needs. If you are looking for a walking companion he is waiting.

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.
