My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

Background - This little girl with a big smile was an owner surrender. She appears to have a high small prey drive and is not good around small dogs or cats. She was so scared in the shelter that she stayed frozen in the corner and was listed as 'no play style' because she never moved. Fortuneately, MOGS was able to work with her and is discovering her playful side!

Temperment/Behavioral - This easygoing, social, sweetheart is good with adults, kids, men, and women. She wants nothing more than to be your friend. She is practicing her manners and learning sit, down, and come. She is a soft mouthed, gentle companion.
Posie does have an unusual habit regarding water buckets. She seems to be somewhat obsessed with them. She carries water buckets whenever she has the chance. No one is quite sure why or how she developed this behavior. No explaination - it just happens. She carries them with or without water in them. It is her special gifting.

Other Animals - Posie likes to maintain her dignity and that involves having no other animal around who might outshine her. Posie would be pretty perfect as is in an only pet home.

Children/People - She loves people! They bring the good pets and the toy buckets!

POSIE's ADOPTION FEE:   $350
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 on.

STOP!! READ THIS BEFORE YOU GO ANY FURTHER!

  1. We're picky about our adopters. 
  2. Are you sure you're up to having a GSD?  They're not for everyone.  They take a lot of time, effort, training.  They shed year round.  They're big.  They scare lots of people.  They 'mouth' and herd.  They're 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 or ours applying.  
  3. Will the dog be an inside family pet? We do not adopt to outdoor-only homes. All dogs must be indoor dogs.
  4. Do you leave your dog outdoors when you're not home?   We do not adopt to homes that leave their animals outside when they're gone.  You must put your dogs indoors when you're gone.  A 3 yr old adopted MOGS dog died when the owners went to run errands, left her outdoors, the gate was somehow opened, and she was hit by a car.  Tragic and 100% preventable. Even privacy fences get broken into.  Gates are opened.  Thieves steal dogs. Never leave your dog outdoors when you're not home!!
  5. 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? 
  6. Will you make a lifetime commitment?  It's your responsibility to keep your dog safe, loved and cared for FOR LIFE.
  7.  Do you understand we expect you to keep that lifetime commitment?  It's YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to stick by your family member -- no matter what.
  8. Are you unable or unwilling to make a lifetime commitment? Do not apply.
