My story

Adoption fee on this dog is $100.

Annabelle is a beautiful six year old that spent her first years chained outside to a tree. When she came to us, she had needed an embedded collar removed and treatment for flea allergies, malnutrition and 2 very painful ear infections. She has had her two lower canine teeth and one other front tooth removed because she broke them off trying to get off of the chain. Even with all this happening, she is a wonderfully affectionate and gentle girl.

She has helped in the raising of four different puppies that were being fostered in the home. She has gotten along with the smaller terrier mix that is in the home. Upon first introduction to new people she is appropriately cautious but warms up quickly. She has been subjected to the attention of a two-year-old toddler and was very calm and tolerant.

Annabelle will be a special-needs dog due to the issues with her spine and hips. These issues are being treated with a nerve pain medication and she is very stable. She will do best in a home where she is not required to climb any stairs and has carpeted floor areas so that her legs don't slip. She is hoping for a family that can give her light to moderate daily exercise to keep her joints loose. She's very much enjoys car rides but needs help getting in the vehicle.

She will be happiest when she is around her humans.

Cats and small critters unknown.

This dog is a Level 2. Please be sure you understand what a dog of this Level requires. Go to our GCGSR Dogs page for an explanation of the Dog Rating Levels.

For more information and to see when this dog will be attending an Adoption Day, please see our Dogs page on our main website at www.gcgsr.org.

Additional adoption info

Adoption Fees Our fees are $350 for Puppies (2-6 months), $300 for Adult Dogs, and $100 for Senior Dogs (9 years & up) and Special Needs Dogs who have ongoing health issues that require treatment. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered (per California State Law), vaccinated, heartworm and fecal tested clear, and most are micro-chipped. Home Visit We require a home visit by one of our own volunteers because we match the home to a specific dog, and we want to meet all members of the household and all other pets at that time, and make sure that environment will work for that dog. The home must be safe and suitable for our dog, and that means we won't adopt to a home with out-of-control children or out-of-control resident dogs. Outside Dogs We rarely place dogs in outside only homes. All of our dogs come out of shelters and into volunteer foster homes where they live in the house with the people. We haven't had much success re-homing them to an outside-only home after that. We believe that dogs are happier living and sleeping inside with their family pack, which has been borne out from many years of bringing dogs into rescue. Adoption Requirements Our Adoption Agreement & Contract is a legal document, therefore we will only adopt to adults, and all the adults in the household must agree to getting the dog. The home must be safe and secure, and legally allowed to have a German Shepherd Dog, and be within the allowable number of dogs. We require landlord consent for renters. The entire household must be a good match for the dog, therefore we won't place a higher Level dog in a lower Level household. Puppies We have special requirements and an additional questionnaire for puppies, please be sure you meet the requirements before sending in an application. Since we see so many dogs that have come out of an unsuitable environment, we want to make sure our puppies have the very best start in life. That means we won't adopt a puppy into an Outside Only home or where the puppy will be alone the majority of the time, as we don't feel that's an optimum environment to raise a happy and well-socialized dog.

More about this rescue

Greater California German Shepherd Rescue is a 501(c)(3) public charity non-profit. We are an all-volunteer group of German Shepherd lovers dedicated to rescuing German Shepherd Dogs from at-risk and unacceptable situations and finding them permanent, loving homes with qualified owners. We serve the communities surrounding Modesto, Merced, Greater Sacramento, and South Lake Tahoe, and occasionally parts of the North and East SF Bay area. Except for a portion of Nevada around Lake Tahoe, we don't adopt dogs out of state and rarely adopt out of our area. There are too many other German Shepherds in need of good homes in the other areas. All of our dogs are in foster homes spread throughout our service areas. We aren't a shelter and don't have a facility. We don't take in strays, we will only deal with the dog's legal owner.
