His name is Storm, but he has the sunniest and sweetest disposition! Especially for a dog that was neglected and kept caged in the backyard 90% of the time. While in the cage, he did not have a blanket, bed, food or water. He was hit and mistreated by the male in the house. When neighbors rescued him, he was covered with fleas and had matted hair. The groomer had to wash and comb him out four times to get all of the fleas! Since he was outside all of the time, Storm is not housebroken. Like all German Shepherds, he is sharp and will catch on quickly with a regular routine.Storm is 18 months old and, since he has been rescued, he has been curious about people and other dogs. He is playful and just so happy to be out and running around. He has recently been around children under the age of six and has been good around them. He will need some basic obedience and leash training.
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.
