Name: Gander
Breed: German Shepherd
Gender: Neutered Male
Age: Approx. 1 yrs 3 mos in April ’16
Weight: Approx. 75 lbs (but still growing)
Energy Level: High
Apartment Appropriate: No
Good w/ Dogs: A bit rude with other dogs

Comments: Gander is currently at that teenager growth spurt phase, so a bit underweight at about 80#. He is neutered, vax-distemper/Parvo/bordatella/canine influenza, microchipped, tested HW negative and on HW prevention, dewormed.

He spent the first year of his life underweight and covered in Demodectic mange, but has been successfully treated. His socialization has been as neglected as his physical needs, so he is still overexuberant when meeting other dogs. Very interested in the rabbits and ducks when he is on leash, but some of that has diminished to casually curious. His forever home will need to have experience with large, powerful breeds and must be willing to commit to Gander's daily exercise and the training he will require to become a balanced dog. He can be reactive when overstimulated, and his new family will need to keep that in mind. He will not be an appropriate dog to take to places like dog parks without considerable work.

He is crate trained, but still working on his leash and 'no jumping' manners. He is a sweet, loving boy, funny, loves balls-just a big goober puppy;-) If you’d like to give Gander the love and training he is so craving, please fill out an application to meet him today!

About Little Dogs Big Hearts Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Little Dogs Big Hearts Rescue was formed in response to the overwhelming number of adoptable dogs being euthanized in our area. We began by networking with other rescues and transporting dogs from shelters throughout the North Texas / southern Oklahoma area to responsible rescue groups so they could be adopted out. Having a soft spot for the tiny breeds, we began fostering and searching for perfect forever homes for the dogs in our care. We do not operate a kennel or shelter- all of the LDBHR dogs are kept in foster homes until suitable forever families are found. All donations are used to make a dent in the medical care of the dogs- none of our volunteers receive any monetary profit (though the emotional profit from helping these wonderful animals makes us feel very wealthy, indeed!). If you have any questions about our group, please feel free to ask at

Come Meet Our Pets...

To see our next Meet The Dogs event, please check out our webpage at We do not do onsite adoptions, but we do get the foster kiddos out in public so that people get a chance to meet them and fall in love and (hopefully) begin the adoption process!
