Facts about Sassy T.

  • Breed: German Shepherd Dog Mix

Sassy is a sweet 10 year old German Shepherd who was owner surrendered to the Downey LA County Shelter. In 2007 her owners adopted her from the same shelter and now in 2016 they have taken her back and abandoned her because "she is too old". Both the staff at Downey and The Thulani Program don't see it that way. She is just coming into her prime. As you can see below in the photos... she is beautiful, lively, stunning, and very sweet. She is even planning and modeling her costumes for an upcoming Halloween party.

Sassy deserves a family that will love her now and into her golden years.

Sassy rides nicely in a car... either in or out of a crate. Also, she walks nicely on a leash and seems to know some basic training commands such as "sit" and possibly "down".

Her current 90lb weight however suggests that she likely needs some additional exercise and/or dieting to get her weight down closer to the 70lb range for her frame.

Sassy has a sweet temperament and enjoys having attention from her people such as getting her neck scratched and ears rubbed. Below is a video of her enjoying a belly rub.

Sassy does have some cloudiness in one of her eyes and it currently being checked out by our vet.

We are just starting to learn more about Sassy T. and as we do so we will update her bio. Please check back here for any updates on her.

Since Sassy has been accepted into the GSRNC Thulani Program she will receive lots of love and pampering and will also receive any medical care necessary for her well being.

As soon a Sassy is ready The Thulani Program will be looking to match her with a forever adoptive home that will care for her for the rest of her life. Sassy will come with a supply of food, a cushy pad if wanted, and other goodies such as toys. AND... her medical expenses are covered by The Thulani Program for the rest of her life.

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.
