HUNTER is a beautiful approximately 8-9-year-old German Shepherd. He has a solid build at 95 pounds, a normal coated black and tan guy, but mostly black with adorable tan eyebrows.


Hunter LOVES to play with balls of all sizes and Frisbees, according to his foster mom. He will chase them and carry them around in the yard, as well as chase with some fellow foster fur-siblings. Hunter is pretty laid back in the house, not necessarily a Velcro dog but will definitely keep tabs on his people and maintain a clear line of sight.

Hunter is crate trained, potty trained, and knows some basic commands such as “sit”, and is working on “down” and more in his excellent foster home. Hunter has had some ear infections and at times they wonder if he has slightly damaged hearing, or if he’s just being ornery with selective hearing.

Other Animals

He does well with other dogs his size and can do well with smaller dogs when closely supervised. Hunter is a big boy and does enjoy playing but doesn’t quite know his size so he could be a little on the rough side for small dogs and children. He has been cat tested and shows some curiosity, but corrects quickly and easily.

Hunter is an older boy, but with plenty of years ahead of him! His hips give him some trouble so it’s unlikely he would be a dog to jump a fence, or able to be too active in ways that strain his hips. He has been able to dig under a chain-link fence, so he will need monitored outside if the fence is not really secure. He is fighting some bad allergies that have caused his ear infections, and is working on getting those issues figured out in foster care. Other than that, Hunter is a lovable big boy just waiting for his perfect home.

Will you be the lucky one to win gorgeous Hunter’s heart?

DOGS:   Good with dogs his size, will require slower introductions to smaller dogs
CATS:    Curious about cats, but corrects when re-directed
KIDS:    Unknown at this time

If you're looking for a gorgeous, wonderful German Shepherd
who will love you forever,
Hunter may be your ideal family member!

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 take a lot of time, effort and training.  They shed all year round.  They're 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 or 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. When you're not home, you must put your dog indoors (NOT in the yard).  One adopted MoGS dog died after the owners went to run errands, left her outdoors, someone opened the gate, and she was hit by a car.  Privacy fences get broken into, gates are opened, thieves steal 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 the rest of its 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.
