Facts about Tabor

  • Breed: German Shepherd Dog Mix
  • Color: Black - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Meet Tabor. This handsome boy is about 2 1/2 years old. The first couple were very rough to say the least. Due to neglect Tabor came to us very skinny with a matted coat. He was also suffering from a leg injury that was never treated and subsequently healed incorrectly. The injury to his leg required it to be amputated however this has not slowed him down at all. People ask all the time if there is anything he can't do and my response so far is, "He can't scratch his right ear." He is completely healed and most of the time people don't notice the missing leg until later. Tabor is now a healthy 75lbs and his coat is soft and full. He is neither timid or fearful for a dog that was treated so poorly. He is outgoing, strong and confident. He adjusts to new experiences well. Tabor is highly food motivated and owner focused which should make obedience training a breeze. Tabor is unusual for a shepherd, he will go up to anyone for attention and demand to be petted. He loves to be brushed. Tabor is well behaved and we have had only a few incidents of inappropriate chewing. It usually occurs when he wants attention but most of the time he will grab one of his toys. He does well at the dog park with other dogs but can be a bit bossy when he plays. What he really loves is going on hikes and walks. He also rides very well in the car and usually lays down until he gets to wherever you're going. I wouldn't suggest Tabor for families with small children due to his exuberance, he may knock them down. I have seen him try and herd them by pulling on their clothes. Tabor is currently living with three cats. He tries to engage them in play and gives them attention. Please consider giving Tabor the forever home that he deserves.

About Austin German Shepherd Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Austin German Shepherd Rescue's mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home German Shepherds from across the State of Texas and to educate the public about the versatility and ability of the German Shepherd Dog from Family Pet to Working Dog.


We are not a shelter. We have no central location. All of our dogs live in homes with volunteers who donate their time and energy to save these dogs. Austin German Shepherd Dog Rescue is a 501-1(c) non-profit organization run strictly by volunteers.



Donations Needed!
All donations go directly for the care and re-homing of the dogs we rescue.

Dogs in our program receive immediate benefit from the generous contributions of our donors. We want the community and our donors to understand how these funds are used and to feel comfortable knowing that their donations are going directly to a needy Shepherd.


Here's how your donation can help:

    This Amount... Will pay for...

  • $10 1 month supply of flea protection

  • $15 1 day of boarding

  • $50 A veterinary exam and vaccinations

  • $75 A spay or neuter

  • $135 All of the above, and 1 month's heartworm preventative

  • $250 Heartworm treatment (removal) for one dog


The health of many of the dogs that come in to our program has been neglected.
Your generous donation... no matter how small... will help us ensure that one of our dogs gets the medical attention they need and deserve. To donate see http://austingermanshepherdrescue.org/Donations/donate_funds.htm.


Volunteer to Help!

The need for caring volunteers is great! There is a myriad of things needed to keep AGSDR operating and allow us to take in, foster, treat, board, and adopt out the Shepherds that are in our care, and who are yet to come. We need people to transport dogs and/or supplies, assist at Meet & Greets, organize events, perform administrative functions and many other critical tasks. If you would like to volunteer, please send an e-mail to jazz@austingermanshepherdrescue.org.

Come Meet Our Pets...
