To meet any of our dogs you must first complete our online adoption application on our website. For more information and the adoption application for Achilles, please visit our website below
Achilles is a super sweet boy who gets along with other large dogs and loves people. When first rescued, he displayed mobility issues and has since lost the use of his back legs. He's seen the vet and a neurologist: based on his age and condition, there is nothing that can be done for him, surgically, so we are making him as comfortable as possible with meds, supplements, and a wheelchair. This handsome boy absolutely loves his walks and can race around in his wheelchair like no one's business! (His front legs are fine, it's just his back that don't want to cooperate.) If you're looking for a super sweet and handsome GSD who will adore you, Achilles is your boy.
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.
