Olive is a 3-year-old purebred German Shepherd Dog. It's not often that we know everything about a dog's background, but, in this case, we do. Her parents were from Germany, she is in excellent health and her hips are very strong.She is extremely loyal to her family and a classic 'working dog,' always on watch and with a high level of energy. She loves to play fetch and will leap into the air to catch something and bring it back for more!Because of Olive's high drive, she will need to be placed in a home that has GSD experience and with someone who understands she will need to have plenty of exercise. She would do well with another dog, if properly introduced, and her owners will need to be committed to training and keeping her mind active. She would be an excellent dog for someone that wants to do agility training. She is very sweet, good with adults and children, crate trained and understands basic commands. Because of her strong prey drive, she should not be in a home with smaller animals.
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.
