Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.German Shepherd dogs, as well as the other herding breeds that we have in rescue, are highly active, energetic, working breeds. They require considerable vetting, exercise, socialization, training, leadership and mental stimuli in order to be well-adjusted, well-balanced, and well-mannered dogs. Even if you exercise and play with your dog daily in your fenced yard, you MUST still take your dog out on daily walks and outings in order to work on his/her leash skills, manners, and social skills. These breeds make great additions to active families who will pamper them, but who will also work with them, as they are smart dogs who need leadership, structure, plenty of activity and mental stimulation. If you are new to German Shepherds (and other herding breeds), please research the breed to make sure this is the dog for you. We ask that you consider the time and financial commitment that your German Shepherd (or other herding breed) dog will require before applying for one. Please review the section on our website (www.heartlandgsrescue.org) 'Is a HUGS Dog Right for You?' for additional information. Armani (also known as Sissy Pants, Puppy, Poppy, Gremlin, Bad Bunny, and SBP) got her name because HUGS took her on knowing of her mega-E diagnosis, and much like her designer namesake, we knew she was going to be expensive!  Armani was surrendered to rescue at only 11 weeks old - the backyard breeder tried to bait and switch the buyers with Armani over the puppy they had already chosen, and when that didn't work, gave Armani to them for free. The buyers immediately realized something was wrong, and Armani was diagnosed with Mega-E two days after they got her. When they contacted the breeder and were told Armani would be put down if they returned her, thankfully they found us. Even by Shepherd standards, Armani is smart. Her first Bailey chair was built the same day she was rescued, and by her third meal in it, she had started jumping on her chair when she saw her foster mama making her food! The first few days with Armani, she was fairly low energy and restrained, likely from lack of nutrition. She began perking up quickly, and is definitely the life of the party now, acting every bit a 'normal' puppy! Shoes and socks were not safe around Puppy for months, but she has recently discovered how tasty kitchen towels can be! Armani is very much a typical puppy - full of energy, always ready to play (even after a 4 mile hike!!), and wildly curious about the world around her.  Armani has excelled at training, knowing sit, stay, how to get into her chair at mealtime, and great leash manners for her age. She's been well socialized thanks to her foster brother and two foster sisters, and has learned how to read and respect other dog personalities, everything from grumpy old man dog to crazy zoomie wrestling sister dogs. Regarding her Mega-E diagnosis: while Armani has congenital, generalized Mega-E, meaning she's not a surgical candidate, her condition is well managed without medication and only needing 15 minutes of upright time after meals. She has earned the nickname 'Diva' from her backup fosters who watch her when Mom travels because her food and feeding preferences change with no rhyme or reason. Sometimes she eats her entire meal from her bowl, sometimes she demands to be spoon or handfed (extra fun when feeding her special recipe mush!) Similarly, she normally gets a 'mush' recipe, but at times will refuse, wanting canned salmon, raw meatballs, or straight dry kibble. She does not tolerate water well, so she gets gelatinized chicken broth cubes. Armani is very much a pack dog - she first left her mom with her littermate, and has since grown up with a pack of three GSDs. She's far more timid when she goes somewhere alone, but will gain confidence if adopted as an only dog to someone who puts in the training time. She is incredibly bonded to her humans - if foster mom is working from home, she will happily spend the whole day perched on the arm of the couch next to mom's desk dropping toys on mom and breathing in mom's ear. Like any of our dogs, this sweet, gorgeous girl would make a great addition to an active home that will provide the love, structure, good leadership, activity and mental stimulation that this breed needs.  Because of that, Armani ideal owner will have prior GSD or other herding breed experience.  Even if you exercise and play with your dog daily in your fenced yard, please remember  that you MUST still take your dog out on daily walks and outings, in order to provide sufficient stimulation, ward off boredom, and work on leash skills, and manners.   Armani's adoption fee is $350, all of which goes back into offsetting our high-cost vetting expenses and rescuing more dogs.  We are a 100% volunteer-run rescue group and rely on adoption fees and donations to continue saving lives. Adoption fees include spay/neuter, current on age-appropriate vaccinations, fecal, deworming, flea/tick and heartworm preventative, heartworm tested if old enough (and treated if positive), and microchipped. Please visit http://heartlandgsrescue.rescuegroups.org/info/adoption for more information about our adoption process and requirements, and to apply.   Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.Please review the information in the 'About Us', 'Important Considerations' and 'Adopt' sections on our website menu, as it contains useful information about the breed, adoption fees, the adoption process and our requirements, and how meeting the dogs works.July 17, 2024, 9:22 am

Please review the section on our website (www.heartlandgsrescue.org) 'Is a HUGS Dog Right for You?' for additional information.Cosmo is a stunning 6-month old young boy who appears to be a white GSD/Siberian Husky mix. Cosmo is a friendly, adorable goofball. His personality is always happy. He will never say no to a nice walk, run, or playing in the yard. He loves kids and is patient with them, but doesn't always remember how big he is, and can knock them over. He does well on walks and is working on not pulling when he gets excited. He does okay with cats and leaves them alone in his foster home, unless they provoke him. Bones and stuffed animals are his favorite things to play with. He is working on kennel training and has made good progress, but still isn't a fan of it and currently uses a heavy duty crate. Because of that, Cosmo would do best with someone who is home a lot. Cosmo does best when foster mom gets to work from home or can take him to work with her. Cosmo is such a snuggle bug and so loving. Cosmo loves to play with other dogs, and would love a friendly, laid-back doggy sibling who is tolerant of puppy shenanigans. Like any of our dogs, this gorgeous boy would make a great addition to an active home that will provide the love, structure, good leadership, activity and mental stimulation that his breed needs. Because of that, Cosmos' ideal owner will have prior GSD, Husky, or other herding breed experience. Even if you exercise and play with your dog daily in your fenced yard, please remember that you MUST still take your dog out on daily walks and outings, in order to provide sufficient stimulation, ward off boredom, and work on leash skills, and manners.
