Facts about Licorice - Adoption Pending

  • Breed: German Shepherd Dog Mix
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Licorice is the sweetest dog ever! She is a smaller sized dog and is pitch black. She simply loves people and tummy rubs. When Licorice first sees you, she immediately dives at your feet and goes tummy up. It is like she is an earth worm, and she will wiggle and wiggle under your feet until you bend over and rub her tummy. Once she gets her tummy rub, she is then ready to listen to whatever it is you might have to say. She is amazingly good at literally stopping you in your tracks, and not allowing you to take one step further until you pet that tummy, so for this reason she should go to a family that is fairly stable on their feet, or willing to stand still until she gets her tummy rub. She is very easy going and really just wants to hang out with her family. She strongly supports all police and emergency vehicles by standing still and just howling as they pass by. She will play fetch once. We are working to see if that is all she will do, or if she will do more once she gets to know us. She seems to ride very well in the car, but of course she is very curious about what is happening in the front seat, so she will climb over if allowed. She loves her food! Eating is perhaps her next favorite thing besides tummy rubs. While she seems to be just fine when laying around, she does have a high prey drive, and she can go from lounging nicely to chasing a squirrel/bunny/etc with no notice. She's fast, and Licorice can go from zero to sixty in an instant. If you love sweet, charming dogs, and you are affectionate and enjoy petting your dog, beautiful Licorice just may be the one for you!

Special Considerations for Adoption: Licorice should go to a home where she would be the only pet.

About Greater Houston German Shepherd Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

GHGSDR volunteers are dedicated to saving as many German Shepherds in the Greater Houston Metro area as humanly possible - based on current resources of available foster homes, the rate at which we can find suitably matched adoptive homes, and of course, financial resources for veterinary care.

GHGSDR Shepherds mostly come from animal shelters where they are awaiting euthanasia. All of these Shepherd Dogs need loving, forever homes and families to call their own. We have several GSDs available for adoption and we regularly take in more Shepherds under our wings and into our Rescue Program, increasing the numbers of dogs available for adoption. Whenever we can, we also work with other dog rescue groups in Texas and nationwide to help ensure the safety and security of these wonderful animals.

Come Meet Our Pets...

GHGSDR holds Meet and Greets @ several Petco stores in the Houston area each month, usually from 1pm to 4pm. Check our homepage for locations and dates.

On our homepage we list the names of the dogs that are expected to be at the event - check 1 or 2 days before the event.

We hope that you will come on out and meet some of our wonderful GSDs. Meet our volunteers and learn more about why GSDs are a wonderful breed!
See you there!
