BART is a 1 yr old cutie patootie who was surrendered with 3 of his littermates around Christmas of 2015.

Bart is a young, very rambunctious  and spunky guy.  Barts mom is a German Shepherd, dad was a traveling salesman!

This guy needs someone to run and play with on a daily basis. He is very high energy and will need consistant exercise and lots of tummy scratching.

Owners grandmother contacted MOGS member Stephanie Payne via the MOGS phone, told her that

she had 3 puppies she would like to surrender. Turned out there were 4 being surrendered.

Grandmother kept 2 of the puppies and the mother. Her grandson had bred his female

GSD and was obviously trying to sell the puppies, but was deployed before he could sell

them. The mother dog also had been exposed to any number of male dogs while in heat.

The grandson supposedly took the mother to a breeder to be impregnated. When we

asked for pictures to make sure they were GSD’s, the grandmother backpedaled and said

that the momma dog may have been around other dogs. Amanda Higinbothoms sister

graciously accepted our request to help foster the puppies overnight for 2 nights and

helped transport them


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

Bart's ADOPTION FEE: $250
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.
