4/30/17  Butch has been with our family for over 6 months now.  His daily routing is to get up go outside, come back in eat breakfast, then return to his dog bed.  He occasionally will play with a chew toy, deer antler or ball.  Butch mostly lounges, getting up for water and going outside.  He likes to carry around his food bowl when he is hungry.  He doesn't pay much attention to his foster siblings.  Butch is very laid back and independent.  Butch doesn't need much exercise and does have trouble with his back leg weakness.  

11/21/16   I have had Butch for a month now.  He is doing great.  He has been neutered, treated with antibiotics for a UTI and given NSAIDS for what was found to be spinal arthritis that is the cause for his weak back legs.  Don't let the arthritis fool you, Butch gets around great.  He loves to walk around the yard with the other dogs as well as curl up on the couch.  He is very friendly and will get up to let you know when he wants outside.  He is not very vocal as I have only heard him bark one time in the month that I had him.  He loves to chew on durachews and deer antlers.  

10/27/16  Butch is new to my home.  He does not respond to commands or his name, however I have seen a change in his personality after five days.  He follows the rest of my pack around in the house.  He goes to the door when he wants to go outside, not always to potty, he just likes to walk around the yard.  The yard is fenced in and I believe if Butch did not have a fenced in yard he would wander off.  He is very friendly and laid back.  He likes to hang out with the other dogs and be in the same room as the humans.  Butch would make a great pet, he does not require a lot of exercise, just likes to hang out with people.

About Virginia German Shepherd Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We provide a valuable service by finding good homes for the German Shepherd Dogs in our care. In the seven plus years that we have been in existence, we have found homes for over 2,400 deserving dogs. We are currently enlisting active volunteers to help with the task of placing some really wonderful, but homeless, German Shepherd Dogs. Our goal is to place all GSDs that are accepted into our Rescue in loving homes in which the GSD and the family will thrive together.

Our Adoption Process...

An applicant first submits an application form with a non-refundable $10.00 (cash or check only) processing fee. VGSR reviews the application, then schedules an interview and home visit during which a number of questions are asked and the home is reviewed to be sure there is a contained/safe yard, and to meet the family involved. Once the application is approved, the applicant is asked to submit a $250.00 (cash or check ONLY) minimum adoption donation to VGSR to help defray the costs of getting the dog fully vetted and ready to be adopted, and the adoption is completed.
