My personality

My story

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

Name: Storm
Breed: GSD
Sex/DOB: FS 10/26/19
Known Health Issues: None at this time
Good With: Dogs. Cats possibly okay with training.
Patient and calm persons, who respect boundaries.
No kids. Patient, dog savvy teens will be considered.

Storm is now accepting applications!

Storm is not an easy girl, and is looking for a very specific home. She has spent a significant amount of time at the rescue working on basic life skills that come easily to most dogs. She has made several breakthroughs in the past few months, and I am now comfortable to start more formally searching for her forever home.

Storm is a very soft dog, and needs a lot of time, space, and patience. What she doesn't need is coddling, and someone to trap her in her past. Her successful adopter must be dedicated to continuing to work with her, expanding her world slowly, but consistently, and giving her life skills to build upon. If your first instinct is to feel sorry for her, she is not the dog for you.

Storm absolutely thrives with other dogs, so much so, that it is a requirement to have another dog to adopt her. She will look to them for guidance, confidence, and direction. She gets along with most other dogs, with some selectivity with certain females. Care must be taken, to make sure she is still worked independently of the other dog, to prevent separation anxiety, and littermate syndrome issues.

Storm loves the outdoors! Once she is comfortable in a space, she shines. She runs, and plays, and leaps for joy! Due to her personality, she is a significant flight risk initially, and needs a secure, fully fenced backyard to access. She will happily spend her days out in the yard, especially if you are out with her.

Storm is incredibly goofy, and loves to make you laugh. Her favourite item is her food dish, and she can often be found carrying around, or just laying and holding it! Sturdy dishes recommended! She has the warmest personality, which she reserves for her special person. She's not looking to have a large social circle, so a quiet home, without many visitors suits her best. She wants to be your one and only.

Storm would love to dabble in some backyard sport activities to help her confidence grow. With enough time and patience, she may even do well at events, but time will tell. She is toy motivated, and loves to retrieve. If she sees another dog performing a task and getting rewarded, she is very quick to imitate! Her food drive is low, but could built. She'd rather work for your praise!

If you think you have the time, pateince, and dedication for my special girl, please send in an application. She will require several meets, before she would be ready to potentially move out. Apply here:

If the interview is a successful match, the next step is a home visit by a volunteer to further discuss any potential matches.


Meet the Pet

The meet and greet is the final step once all other steps have been cleared.

If the meet & greet goes well the adoption contract is signed. All adopted dogs must attend formal dog training within 2 weeks of adoption.
