Quinn is a beautiful and magnificent girl and at 5-6 yrs old is a great age to avoid the puppy-crazy-demands but with tons of life to give over many more years.  She is a LOVER and bonds quickly and hard with her people!  She has lots of snuggles and love to give.

Originally found as a stray, she was kept by the finder and used to breed, then later left at a local shelter because she was no longer a useful breeding dog.

Quinn so adores being with her people that she'll take scratches and cuddles over running around in the yard!  In fact, if you shut the door to the yard, she'll stand at the door for 15 minutes just to be sure you're not still on the other side.  Finally she'll go run around and have a good time.  But she clearly would rather be with her people, just chilling out if that's what her people are doing, than running around on her own.  She will lay quietly at your side and just enjoy life.

She's crate and house trained, and knows how to use a doggie door.  She does get along with other dogs, but requires slow introductions to other animals.  She would make a wonderful only dog, too!   She is cat tolerant as long as they do not try to run away from her or try to bat at her.  She is easy to correct and only wants to please her people.

Quinn doesn't know a stranger and has been friendly with everyone she has met. She did well when introduced to older children (11-12).  A 6 foot fence is required, or direct supervision when outside. The reason is that although she's adapted well in foster care, she did climb the 6 ft chain link fence at the shelter (never observed in foster care). She walks on a leash nicely and knows several commands (sit, wait, here, okay).

Her ideal home will have plenty of and snuggles and cuddles.  A dog friend of similar size and medium energy that could be introduced slowly (she gets along quicker with males but is tolerant of some females). Or she would be content as an only dog in a loving family.

When Quinn came into the program she was heartworm positive and had a mass on her side. While in foster care she has received her Heartworm treatment and the mass -- which was biopsied and found to be just a fatty cyst -- has been removed.

Quinn is a true sweet heart that has many years of love to give to a lucky family. Are you her forever home?

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.
