Sierra is very healthy, has lots of energy, and loves to play ball, play with her bowl, play with sticks, anything to entertain herself and her companions. But interestingly, she can chill quietly in the house when left alone, and is not destructive. She is house trained and has excellent house manners. She is very affectionate toward people, especially when you have a ball. She knows some obedience, and will actually demonstrate it if you have something she wants She knows sit, down, heel. She walks well on the lead and rides well in the car.

But she needs to be an only dog, and no cats. She is a dominant female from working lines.

More about Sierra T.

Sierra T. is also a member of the GSRNC Thulani Program. She was found in the Chatsworth area of Southern California. Our veterinarian and trainer do not believe she is a senior dog as originally listed based on her play and energy levels. So we have revised her age listing to be consistent with their recommendations... 7 years old.

Since Sierra T. is not a senior, the Thulani Program will cover all medical costs for the first year of her adoption.

She has a funny personality and an amazing way of letting you know when she is hungry. When at the shelter she played with her food bowl and held it for the kennel worker when it was feeding time – waiting for him to fill it... “More please!” We captured a photo of her doing this below.

She’s a tennis ball fanatic. Ball focused, but realizes people are part of the game, so brings you the ball and drops it. Then stares. If nothing good happens (i.e. you throw the ball) she picks it up and drops it closer to you. You can also take the ball from her mouth without tugging.

She would have made a great working dog. Can jump right into a car without assistance and will ride quietly. She also walks well on a lead.

Sierra T. would be good in an active home – maybe with kids who will play with her. She is incredibly social with people.

Did I mention she likes playing ball?!!!

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process is designed to help you and the right dog find each other. Our goal is to place each dog into a permanent, safe, and loving home.

To adopt a German Shepherd Dog from us, you must:

1. Live in Northern California.
2. Complete an Adoption Questionnaire, either online, or by mail. If you do not own your home, you must also have your landlord complete the Landlord Letter.
3. Be interviewed by an adoption counselor.
4. Allow a home visit by an adoption counselor.
5. Be approved for adoption.
6. Choose, and be chosen by, the right dog.
7. With our approval, sign our Adoption Agreement.

After we receive your online Adoption Questionnaire, we will call you to begin the adoption process. We encourage potential adopters to come to one or more Adoption Days, because that is the best way to meet several German Shepherds and to find your new companion. If you attend an Adoption Day and choose a dog, you may be able to adopt the same day, if all adoption requirements are met.

If you cannot come to any Adoption Day, we can still assist you, this may take longer because the people who will help you are volunteers who usually have jobs, and scheduling meetings with dogs can be complex because our dogs live in many homes and kennels.

We do not adopt to homes outside of Northern California.
