To meet any of our dogs you must first complete our online adoption application on our website. For more information and the adoption application for Farrah, please visit our website below
At around 5 years old, Farrah is a great age to become part of your family. She knows basic commands, as well as hand signals, walks well on a leash, is potty trained, great in the house, and has lots of energy, but isn't a spazzy puppy. One of the smartest girls around, Farrah has mastered the art of pretending to be submissive, while secretly trying to get her way. ;)Farrah is a super sweet girl, with an award winning smile, who loves to cuddle with her person. She is great with people, but would probably do better in a home with older children, as she can be 'jumpy' if excited and not corrected, although she loves children of all ages. She is dog friendly, but doesn't like to share the spotlight with dominant females.Farrah has a condition common to GSDs: pannus. It's easily treated with a topical ointment and it doesn't slow her down one bit!
The minimum adoption donation for adults is $300 and the adoption donation for puppies is $400 - $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
