IRIS - $150's Story...

All pets adopted out will be spay/neutered, micro-chipped, Heartworm tested, rabies and relevent vaccinations.


Monthly Heartworm preventative, and monthly flea/tick preventative must be administered throughout the course of the dogs life.

The adoption donation of dogs may vary. Please check out each individual dogs information for the minimum donation amount.

The Application can be downloaded from the website, or feel free to email to request one.

Indepth application, references and a home check will be required before adoption is completed.

Anyone wanting to adopt a German Shepherd MUST have knowledge about their needs. These are very intelligent dogs that need lots of exericse, both physically and mentally.

Please discuss and consider if you are now, and will be in the foreseable future, in a financial position to provide to the dogs needs, unexpected vet bills, and common health issues specific to the breed.

Please note, any 'curtousy post' is just that, GaDaH knows nothing about that individual animal, however, will pass on your enqury to the rescue that has the pet.

Spinal Tap - Distemper Survivor

IRIS was saved from Brazoria Sheriffs pound. Sadly she had distemper. IRIS went neurological and received TWO spinal tap surgeries which stopped the distemper from spreading and consequently saved her life.

IRIS is the sweetest dog ever, she does have a constant muscle twitching, kind of like Parkinson's disease. This, however, does not stop her, she will run and play with the other pups, she gets around everywhere on her own.

It is hard not to pity her if you see her lying her body constantly twitching, mainly towards her back legs, however, when you see her look at you, and her tail instantly wag, her get up and come over to you it can do nothing but melt your heart and change that pity to admiration.

IRIS deserves a family that can spend time with her, give her lots of loving and fun, take her on lots of adventures. IRIS would be great with children and I'm sure since she has been through so much surrounded by the pack, she would be happy with another k9 companion - but this of course isn't a deal breaker.

We have adopted two other distemper survivors that had the twitching like IRIS and it did get less over time, it will never go away as the distemper damages nerves, but it appears that it is more apparent when they are sleeping and their mind not over-riding their body.

IRIS adoption donation is $150

GaDaH does allow out of state adoptions, however, the family must travel to San Antonio, to spend time with the dog to make sure personalities are a good match before traveling home together.    

For the adoption process and the application, please refer to the application page on this website.

GaDaH will bring the potential adoptable pets to your home for a meet and greet, once the application, and references have been submitted.

The adoption process includes, but is not limited to:

A meet and greet
An in-depth application - download from website
A letter of reference from a current or former vet - on their letter headed paper
Two written references from people who know you and your family well - (not from family members).
A meet and greet on neutral ground with any other dogs
A home visit
A home visit with the dog/puppy

Potential adopters are encouraged to meet potential dogs/puppies as often as they like, and no rush decisions made. If after the above, both parties would like to go forward with an adoption, then a ONE-WEEK Temporary foster contract is completed, before any adoption process can be complete.

This is to ensure the potential adopters, and as equally important the dog/puppy, and GaDaH are all happy.
