KINGSTON is a gorgeous boy who's finally on a path of greatness, good health, and well-being!  This beautiful 2 1/2 year old sable German Shepherd was used as a breeder dog and was finally surrendered due to the terrible skin condition that had taken over a good majority of his body.  He had a horrific case of mange that covered approximately 3/4 of his body - his paws were even swollen and painful.  But what we found out as he was surrendered shocked us even more.  This poor boy has been dealing with mange since he was 6 months old!  His breeder/owners continued to have him breed even though he was in rough shape.  We're so happy to say this is all in his past, and he's recovering nicely in his foster home.



Kingston is one cool dude!  Surprisingly, he's pretty social and friendly with humans!  He's already met quite a few neighbors around his foster home, and has greeted everyone nicely.  He's working hard to learn good doggie manners, and good leash manners as well.  He's done well so far with the kids in the home - 12 years old and up.  We have many more assessments we'll go through with Kingston as he continues to feel better and reveal his true personality.  Stay tuned for more updates as we get to know him better in foster care.

Kingston seems to be doing well with other dogs, and when approached by strange dogs on the street, as engaged in a playful manner.  We'll update this as we get more information from his foster home.
Kingston is working on hard to recover from his hard life as a breeder dog.  His skin was a complete mess when he came into our program; we'll update this again as we get more information on his progress!


If you're looking for a gorgeous, young, trainable German Shepherd
who will love you forever,
Kingston may be your ideal family member!

This fee covers only part of what we spend to vet, board and rehab the dogs we save. On average we spend over $450 on each dog. We made a decision to keep our adoption fee at the 2005 level even though vet prices have doubled and tripled since then. We are constantly fundraising to cover the deficit. At minimum, your adoption fee includes the dog's spay/neuter, heartworm test, heartworm treatment if needed, rabies shot, distemper/parvo shot, bordatella shot, deworming, monthly heartworm and flea preventives, and microchip. In many cases it also includes surgery and various types of vet treatment for standard issues such as hot spots, ear infections and so on.

  1. We're picky about our adopters!  GSDs are not for everyone.  They demand  lots of time/effort/training.  They shed all year round and are big and scare lots of people.  They 'mouth' and are usually strong-willed and stubborn.  You have to have references and a home visit.  If you're not willing/able to deal with any of this, please don't waste your time applying.  
  2. All MoGS dogs must be inside family pets. We do not adopt to outdoor only homes.
  3. You have to put your dog indoors (NOT in the yard) when you're not home.  One adopted MoGS dog died after the owners left to run errands, left her outdoors, someone opened the gate, and she was hit by a car.  Privacy fences have been broken into, gates have been opened, thieves have stolen dogs. NEVER leave your dog outdoors when you're not home!!
  4. You're required to make a lifetime commitment.  Only you can make sure the dog is safe, loved and cared for, for life. The minute you adopt, that responsibility is yours.
  5. Are you unable or unwilling to make a lifetime commitment? Do not apply.
  6. What's your plan for unexpected events and major changes?  New baby? Divorce?  Moving?   How you will provide for your dog if your family breaks up?  If you move?  If you have a child?
  7. You're making a lifetime commitment to a MOGS Dog.   We expect you to keep it!  It's YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to stick by your family member -- no matter what.
