My story

Dudette was rescued from a high kill shelter in Texas.  She arrived to her Virginia foster on August 26th, so check back soon for an update.

Dudette or as I like to call her DD. She is a total sweetheart. She is a little unsure of loud noises or kids playing. But she loved my grandkids once she knew they wasn't going to bother her. I have a kitten and she was afraid of him at first, now she trys playing with him. She is so gentle with him even when he is being mean. She likes playing with our male dog. She will go into a crate but it is not her favorite and will whine. She does settle down if I cover it so she knows it is bedtime. She is lower energy so far and loves to cuddle on the sofa. She is tiny and petite for a shepherd. She does great on a leash and only pulls a little. She doesn't have any manners and likes to jump. So I will be working on obedience. She is a counter surfer but a firm no or off and she quits. I will update more when I get to know her better. But so far she is a dream foster.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

The first step to adopt one of our dogs is to complete an adoption application. Once you have submitted your application, a volunteer with call your personal and veterinary references. Following references, SSR will send out a volunteer to conduct a home visit and meet any members of your household. We come to your home and further discuss the adoption process. The adoption application will let us know a little bit about you, your home, your lifestyle and what you are looking for in a companion. Anyone over the age of 18 is welcome to fill out our application to adopt one of our dogs. Your application will either be accepted or denied after the volunteer submits a home visit report. ADOPTION FEES There is a non-refundable application fee of $15. Our adoption fee is $300 for dogs aged 6 and under. Our adoption fee is $225 for dogs 7 and up.
