Facts about Shiloh

  • Breed: German Shepherd Dog Mix
  • Color: Black - With Brown, Red, Golden, Orange Or Chestnut
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Shiloh is a very cute young boy who is just over a year of age. Shiloh was completely feral when he arrived in April 2016 from Hazard, Kentucky. He had very clearly never been handled prior to this time and we are unaware of the circumstances surrounding his first few months.

Shiloh still has a very long way to go in trusting people. He has zero confidence in himself or the world around him resulting in a very timid and shy dog. Shiloh has no fear aggression and has never lashed out but is going to require a home with the patience to work with him to overcome his past. Shiloh does really well with people from a distance of about 5-7 feet and will linger on the outskirts of interactions but doesn't know what to do when the attention is turned to him. Shiloh will come up and nudge from behind seeking attention but does best when there isn't a big fuss made about it. He has a desire to be around people but is still so unsure of him.

Shiloh does great with other dogs and really relies on them for social cues. He was running with another dog - Bentley - who we suspect is his brother. Shiloh was definitely the follower and has stayed true to that role. He does great with other dogs and has learned how to navigate play groups really well. He would really benefit from having another dog or group of dogs in a home to show him the ropes and help him overcome his fears.

A volunteer reached out to us about Shiloh within minutes of when he was scheduled to be euthanized - there was certainly a large hand guiding him to safety and we hope to see him fulfill his potential with a loving home.

If you have a place in your heart and home for this sweet young boy please email for an adoption application.

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.
