Facts about Maddie (Guest)

  • Breed: German Shepherd Dog
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
We are helping Maddie's owners find a new home for her. They are expecting a baby and are no longer able to give her the attention she needs. Maddie's owners are located in Kentucky, but will drive to meet interested adopters. Her description is below. Please contact her owners if you would like to meet her. Maddie is not our foster dog, so all inquiries should be directed to her owners.

Maddie is a 5 yr old white German Shepherd who ended up at our local animal control facility as an extremely emaciated stray 4 years ago. We rescued her with the intention of placing her in a new home and then we discovered that she has ME. She has been a long term foster since then but we have never given up hope that the right home would come along

Maddie’s idea home: Only dog household with someone who has the ability to be home much of the day if possible or who is willing to have a petsitter visit at midday to let her outside and feed her midday meal. Maddie has done well with our laid back relaxed male German Shepherd but tends to be very guarded and uncomfortable around our high energy male Staffie.

Like many GSD’s Maddie has extremely high prey drive and cannot live with small dogs/cats or other small animals. While we do think she could slowly integrate into a home with another laid back dog she would much prefer to be the only child if possible. Maddie has environmental allergies which are well managed with Apoquel daily and bathing once a month. In addition to the allergies, she suffers from separation anxiety. She currently lives in a home were both adults are gone for 5-10 hours a day and we manage her separation anxiety with a combination of inexpensive medications that have been tailored to her through consultation with a veterinary behaviorist. Our current schedule of having a petsitter stop by the house at midday, when our schedules have us out of the house for longer periods of time, has worked really well. Maddie would thrive in a home with someone who is home even more than that.

While Maddie does have some special medical and behavior needs (when it comes to other animals) she is an amazing human companion. She is truly happiest when she is with a person. While many dogs with separation anxiety tend to be extremely needy Maddie is very good at self-entertainment when she feels safe and comfortable. Her absolute favorite things are: playing fetch, flirt pole and lounging on the couch, or playing with her chew toys and chuckit balls. Maddie would be a perfect fit for any adult home or one with teenagers but we think the activity level of young children might be a bit over stimulating for her.”

About German Shepherd Rescue of GA

Our Adoption Process...

GSDRGA wants every German Shepherd Dog we rescue to become a beloved member of their adopted family, living happy and healthy for the remainder of their lifetime.

Anyone requesting to adopt a dog must complete an adoption application prior to consideration and agree to a binding adoption agreement at the time of adoption.

If you are in the southeast region and are interested in adopting a dog, you must travel to Atlanta to meet the dog prior to adoption. Only in certain circumstances will we consider an applicant more than 4-6 hours driving distance from Atlanta.

All adoption applicants are evaluated based on information they provide, while considering the personality, temperament and requirements of the dog they are requesting to adopt. All adoption applicants must agree to a home evaluation visit done by a GSDRGA representative prior to adopting any dog.

GSDRGA requests a standard adoption donation of $250 for each dog. This is donation is used to defer the costs of veterinary care, food and supplies needed to care for our rescued dogs.
