Shep is very loving 5 year old GSD boy whose silly antics are sure to bring a smile to anyone's face.  He loves to play with toys just as much as he loves cuddling on the sofa and is the perfect smaller size GSD at 65 lbs. and 22' at the shoulder.  Shep enjoys swimming, walks, going for drives in the car, being brushed, snuggling and even sunning himself on the patio in nice weather.  He knows many basic obedience commands, has learned nice door manners, will walk nicely on a leash and will even shake paw!  Shep is neutered, UTD on vaccinations, current on heartworm and flea preventatives, housebroken and crate trained.  He's a ham for the camera and loves wearing Halloween costumes!  Shep an indoor dog and loves being with people so a home where someone is able to be with him (i.e. a retiree, someone who works from home, etc.) and where he could be the only dog would be best.  Shep takes nutritional supplements, Chinese herbs and medicine (approx. $10/month for a generic prescription) which seem to help manage his separation anxiety quite well.  X-rays taken this Spring showed that Shep's right hip appears to be dysplastic however, he doesn't show any signs of limping or pain from it and therefore, is not taking any prescription medicine for it.  Shep's an all around great dog with a lot of love, life and fun in him for the right person. If anyone is interested and wants more information about him, here is

About German Shepherd Rescue of Central Florida

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a non-profit Florida corporation operated totally by volunteers dedicated to finding forever loving homes for German Shepherd Dogs one dog at a time.

Our rescues live in temporary foster homes with loving families and treated like a member of the family while awaiting adoption.

We accept dogs from owner surrenders, animal control and animal shelters. Every dog or puppy is spayed or neutered, vaccinated appropriately, heartworm tested and receives a microchip before going to his or her forever home.

Dr. Terry Marie Curtis, a veterinarian and clinical behaviorist from UF is part of our team providing advice and treatment to dogs and puppies with psychological challenges. Dr. Peggy Fleming provides our dogs and puppies with holistic care. Dr. Jackson provides extensive comprehensive care to all our rescue dogs and puppies. We selected her because the rescue dogs and puppies respond better with women, at least initially. Dr. Michelle McCutcheon spays and neuters our dogs and puppies. We are grateful to her and the CARES Center for the excellent care provided each of our animals. Dr. McCutcheon makes the smallest incisions this rescue has witnessed and we have never had a challenge or infection since she started sterilizing our animals.

All adopters are asked to complete an adoption questionnaire on our web site at
