BEAU is an adorable, all white, 7-month old male, who was brought into the local shelter as a stray hold, significantly underweight, and with injuries to his body that indicated he'd been short-chained on blazing hot cement. He's with MOGS now, and enjoying the good life in a fantastic foster home that is taking care of his various medical needs. TEMPERAMENT
Little Beau is a fun-loving, high-energy, sweet-tempered baby who needs work on all the usual young GSD behaviors. The first step in his foster home has been to learn potty-training, but he is super smart and already can follow basic commands such as sit and wait. As with all untrained GSD's, he can have a bit of a stubborn streak, but is showing daily improvement with acccepting his person as the authority. He does have some mouthing and jumping issues - these are typical traits of mis-/un- handled GSD's, which are being worked on in his foster home. OTHER ANIMALS
Beau is currently in a foster home with other dogs, all larger than him, and gets along well with them. He loves to snuggle with his foster brother. He can sometimes be too rambunctious for his foster sister, but responds well to correction from both other animals.
Beau has not been tested with cats. CHILDREN
Beau has been exposed to children during MOGS events, and is very sweet with all different ages. MEDICAL
Beau came into MOGS' custody with multiple burn locations to his elbows and paws, which are well on the way to recovery at this time, and should not require any special care post-adoption. He also had an upper respiratory infection, which he has now completely recovered from. He is also recovering from being moderate-severely underweight, and is approaching a healthy size and weight for his age.

who will love you forever,
Beau 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 o

PLEASE READ THIS:
- 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.
- All MOGS dogs must be inside family pets. We do not adopt to outdoor only homes.
- 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!!
- You're required to make a lifetime commitment. The minute you adopt, it is your responsibility to keep your dog safe, loved and cared for FOR LIFE. Only you can do that.
- Are you unable or unwilling to make a lifetime commitment? Do not apply.
- 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?
- 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.
Thank you for considering a homeless dog or cat.
