Brenden is a happy guy that we rescued from local animal control when his time was up. Here's some more information about Brenden that we have learned:
- Leash Manners - Walks well on leash when walked properly and with a training collar.
- Crate/House Training - House trained and crate trained and will sleep in his crate at night if you prefer. He sleeps very well throughout the night.
- Socialization - Well socialized and is great with meeting new people. He is timid at first when meeting other dogs but gets along with them fine if they give him his space. He is not socialized with cats.
- Energy Level and Exercise - Moderate energy level and loves to take walks or go on runs.
- Daily Structure and Schedule - Eats twice daily and needs at least 30-45 minutes of exercise daily.
- Confidence Level - Brenden has more of an alpha personality but is submissive if you are a strong owner, which is what he really needs. He has a playful, gentle personality and is very obedient.
- Obedience Training - Knows Off, Sit, Down, Come, Paw and Uh-Uh (as a correction) and plays fetch. Does not get up on furniture and does not eat people food or beg when you're eating. He is very willing to learn new things and is easily trained when he understands what is expected of him.
- Behaviors - He has a high prey drive and will chase cats.
- Personality Quirks - Sensitive to having his teeth or paws touched but does well with grooming when it's done by someone he knows and trusts.
- Ideal Home - A home without young children as well as without cats. He could live with another dog as long as they are submissive to him and low energy.
***According to dogbreedinfo.com, in April 1899, Capt. Max von Stephanitz registered a dog named Horan as the first Deutsche SchÃ¤ferhunde, which means German Shepherd Dog in English. Known for their tremendous loyalty and courage, they are calmly confident but not hostile. This breed needs his people and should not be left isolated for long periods of time. They only bark when it is necessary. Serious and almost human in his intelligence, they have a great ability to learn. The breed is so intelligent and learns so readily that it has been used as a sheepdog, guard dog, in police work, as a guide for the blind, in search and rescue service, and in the military. The German Shepherd also excels in many other dog activities including schutzhund, tracking, obedience, agility, flyball, and ring sport. His fine nose can sniff out drugs and intruders, and can alert handlers to the presence of underground mines in time to avoid detonation, or gas leaks in a pipe buried 15 feet underground. A quick daily brushing is best unless hair in the house is not a problem. They should be bathed only once or twice a year to avoid skin oil depletion. Shepherds have a life expectancy of around 13 years.

Rescue Group Info...
We are a private, non-profit rescue located in Sanford, Florida, dedicated to the rescue cats and dogs. Many of them come to us with medical needs. They are doctored to the best of our ability and resources.
Our most urgent goal is to rescue animals that are abandoned or in distress, update their vaccines, and find good new homes for them. But we attempt to be more proactive than that. It is our heartfelt desire to prevent any animal from the need to be "rescued." With that vision in mind, we take a three-prong approach through the education of pet owners and the general public about:
- proper care of animals, including correct diet of good quality food, fresh clean water, daily exercise, and lots of love
- spaying and neutering companion animals (dogs and cats) in order to prevent euthanasia and over-population
- low-cost spay/neuter clinics and wellness centers in their local community
Although many of our pets are cared for at our facility in Sanford, many others are in private foster homes. To arrange a meet, it is best to first complete an online adoption application so that we can set up a meeting. You can access complete information on our pets plus the adoption application on our website, www.petrescuebyjudy.com. Adoptions are held at our Sanford Adoption Center as well as our Oviedo Mall Adoption Center. Please visit our facebook page, facebook.com/petrescuebyjudy, for a full listing of events where PRBJ is represented.
You can get full information on our pets through our website, www.petrescuebyjudy.com. You may then complete an online adoption application. After being processed, we will arrange a meet with the pet at our facility in Sanford. Our adoption fees for cats are generally $75-$150; for dogs $100-$350. We also have a Seniors For Seniors Program to promote the adoption of senior pets by senior citizens.
We limit our adopting families to the Central Florida. We're sorry but we do not ship pets.
