My story

**Emergency Foster Needed** Duke is a sweet gentle 3 year old male German Shepherd.  He was found abandoned in a remote area with a chronic ear infection. He had surgery in January to remove his left outer ear and have canal ablations on both ears which left him hearing impaired. 

He gets along with cats and dogs.  He walks great on a leash and doesn’t bark.  He is intelligent and aims to please.  His diminished hearing hasn’t stopped him from learning his basic commands.  He loves to be loved, be brushed and will roll over for a belly rub.  He enjoys playing with toys and searching for treats.  He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations & flea prevention meds and is microchipped.   Duke will thrive in a home that is patient and willing to go slow since he is still learning how to enjoy life.   His foster mom would love to see his training continue and is willing to pay for an hour of training with his current trainer and his new family.  If you have any questions, would like to meet Duke or would like to see more pictures and videos, please call/text Michelle  619-843-9963.

Their adoption process

This includes spay/neuter, vaccinations and microchip as well as addressing any medical issues which are apparent at the time. We normally do a two week foster-to-adopt. A trainer is available for all dogs as needed. The first step is to submit an adoption application. Next is a meet & greet and home visit, then, an adoption contract is signed and the a donation made. The adopter agrees to return the dog to Happy Hearts if for any reason and at any time the dog must be relinquished. A refund is given only during the initial two week foster-to-adopt. After the first two weeks no refund will be given.

More about this rescue

All our dogs are vaccinated, spayed/neutered and microchipped before adoption. If you are interested in meeting one of our dogs, please submit an adoption application on our website: http://www.happyheartsgsr.org You will also find all our dogs on our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/HappyHeartsGSDRescue At Happy Hearts our primary mission is to save 11th hour dogs from being euthanized. We rescue our dogs from high kill shelters, rehabilitate them, and place them in loving forever homes. We work with fosters and trainers to facilitate the dogs rebuilding trust and learning appropriate behavior so that they can function well in their new forever home. Fosters who generously open their homes and hearts to dogs desperate for love and support are the foundation of everything we do. In foster homes dogs learn good doggie manners and recover from the loss of their previous families as well as other negative experiences. We are foster-based so that dogs can be given the time and attention they need to recover from sometimes horrific experiences. When necessary we utilize boarding to remove a dog from a shelter when it has 24 hours or less to live and no other rescue interest. Occasionally dogs with more serious behavioral problems will need extensive training and rehab and can only go to experienced fosters. BOARDING On some occasions we board dogs in order to save them at the last moment, or when a foster has had a situation change, and they need a place to go. Although this is our last resort option, it is a regular occurrence since there are not enough fosters available to help all the dogs in need. However the kennel facility we use is close, and we are able to visit our dogs daily, so they get exercise, attention and training. We have a few wonderful trainers who help us deal with behavioral issues (from mild to severe) which is often the reason they have been given up in the first place. Thank you to our primary trainer, Alex Gant, for her many hours of work! (http://resultswithbehave.com). Donate to Our Rescue Group... Sponsors who are able to help support a dog through it’s stay at Happy Hearts make what we do possible. Boarding expenses, food, medical care, and necessary equipment from collars to chew toys are all very costly and help from those who share our vision and support us enables us to continue our work. We also take in many senior dogs that have high medical expenses and it is only though the generosity of sponsors and other donors that we can continue to do this. To sponsor or make a donation please go to our website at: http://www.happyheartsgsr.org Donations can also be made on PayPal to happyheartsgsdrescue@gmail.com
