Story
Spooda arrived in our care during the first week of June, and oh, is he ready to steal your heart? He keeps making friends on every outing as a purely social boy who adores people and wants to play with all the dogs.  This 5-month-old boy has been making fantastic impressions since his first-day visit to Paws n Play for a post-shelter bath, followed by a stop at Marshall's for errands, where he earned some treats and a few extra toys to ease the aches of his incoming teeth, enjoying all the attention and patiently waiting our turn in the checkout line. He's since visited Pet Food Express for a weigh-in on their scale and made new friends again.  Although he didn't particularly enjoy the getting wet and rinsing off portion of his first bath, tucking his head into his foster mom's shoulder to tolerate it, except for the shampoo time, when he just melted into her hands, Spooda has shown us that he loves water.  In his relief foster home, he gets along famously with four shepherds and a poodle, proving that he's not only people-friendly but also great with other dogs. He even met our newest arrivals, 10-week-old littermates Gwen, Griffin, and Woody, as they were waiting for their fosters to pick them up.  As much as Spooda loves the dogs and plays, his heart is devoted to people, regularly checking in amidst play and settling for naps by his people. He makes excellent eye contact, settles in for snuggles, and listens well.  In addition to his charming personality, this boy is showing promising signs of being a well-behaved and trainable companion. He sleeps through the night in his crate, is potty trained, and is a breeze in the car and on a leash until he spies a dog. He is easily distracted from dogs with movement or treats. With "sit" already mastered and a strong treat motivation, he's a quick learner.  When Spooda spies dogs at a pet store, he pulls on the leash, barks in excitement for play, and greets the dogs appropriately if you allow a meeting. A group training class would be super helpful for him to master the art of being excited and not barky.  Spooda recently met a little kitty through its crate and was so gentle laying next to the kitty's crate so they could touch noses.  Although Spooda is terrific with dogs, he lives solo in his regular foster home. They find him super obedient, loving, motivated, and happy to learn! And he's a fan of playing fetch with his soft, squishy toys at their house.  Returning this weekend to his relief foster home, where he spent the first couple of days after leaving the shelter, Spooda mastered swimming and progressed to leaping off the side of the pool in an afternoon just like older shepherds. He's likely to adore dock diving as a sport. He gets along great with the three resident shepherds and one senior poodle; Spooda also loves Stewie, who is also available for adoption. They spend hours playing chase and tug with assorted toys and mouthy games.  We anticipate this tall, lean boy will be a large shepherd as an adult.  When Spooda went in for his surgery consult on Tuesday, June 18th, a change in their schedule allowed them to slide Spooda in so he didn't have to come again. We had already fasted him as we expected him to be sedated for his exam. So Spooda is back home sporting the inevitable cone, his abdominal hernia and phimosis repaired, and his extraneous rear dew claws removed and neutered.  He's got the normal post-surgery 10-14 day activity restriction to heal and pain meds to make the next few days easier.  Spooda gravitates toward little kids and wants to give them kisses. We suspect he was a very much loved pet who was likely surrendered to the shelter as a "found dog" due to the expenses associated with his surgery. Spooda's regular foster family was out of town for a long weekend, and he heads back to them after his surgery consult appointment.  He might be the perfect match if you're looking for a loving and trainable pup to join your family. Take advantage of the opportunity to bring this delightful German Shepherd into your home! As with all of our puppies, experience raising a shepherd or similar breed puppy is essential, along with the commitment to raising a neutral dog with structure, training, and exercise. These require considerable commitment in exchange for lots of snuggles and love.  ##2069830##

Story
Stewie is a charming, devoted and affectionate two-year-old boy with folks he knows and trusts. He completed a month-long training through Canine Purpose's Board and Traning program in Loomis and currently attends group classes with his foster families. This handsome boy has the brains and a big heart to match. He can be handful with a cheeky side making significant progress in impulse control while his handlers have learned that he's a boy who needs structure and thrives when his people give him clear direction. Stewie has two foster homes, switching between the households regularly.  Stewie's affectionate nature once he establishes a relationship with you means that you'll always have a best friend nearby, preferably leaning into you or snuggling while you watch TV or read and if allowed in bed with you. In his foster home with doggie mates, he sleeps free starting the night snuggled right in bed next to his humans to move off to a dog bed later in the night. In his foster home where he's a solo dog, he sleeps in his crate easily; knowing each households rules and following them.  Stewie has been working hard in his training sessions, mastering meeting strangers with an easy hi, learning a solid place command, working with multiple handlers on the desired heel position, and maintaining his learned skills in increasingly distracting environments. At the same time, he loves his trainers with his vast capacity for joy and loves to please them. Stewie has a natural shepherd stranger danger focus around strangers requiring an experienced handler whom he trusts at which time he'll cede those decisions to his handler.  With his intelligence, eagerness to please those he loves, and love of treats, it's been lovely to watch Stewie heal from the repair of his fractured leg that required months of crate confinement, followed by rehab, and the vitality of a young shepherd who finally could run and play and join his multiple foster families (he had four during his crate confinement) in long walks, play with the resident shepherds and learn to swim with them, then evolve into a potential candidate for Dock Diving since he loves to leap into the water, dunk his head in completely to fetch his toys out of the water.  Suppose you love training your dog, have excellent handling skills to provide structure and experience with shepherds or similar breeds, and are looking for a shepherd to continue developing your dog's obedience skills. In that case, Stewie is ready to be the devoted companion you have been searching for. In return, he would love a steady supply of balls, toys, especially squeaky ones, and many swim opportunities. Stewie's entirely crate and potty trained, has earned the right to sleep free, and shows himself trustworthy while his people are away without being crated. As months have progressed, he's even settled in the car, snoozing on the way to destinations for hours long rides. He's generally a quiet boy in the house, leaving it to his mates to bark at preceived critter prowlers in the yard at night and loud noises in the street.  Stewie enjoys many fruits and vegetables, including blueberries, bananas, oranges, apples, nectarines, cucumbers, and carrots. Generally, he's game to try any food you offer, including fan favorites of pumpkin, cottage cheese, and yogurt, to name a few. He had many filled Kongs, Toppls, and other enrichments during his long crate confinement. A slim and trim boy, Stewie loves his kibble and eats his meals with the resident dogs, sitting for his meals before eating from his bowl. Before heading to Canine Purpose for training, Stewie generally could honor sit, down, stay, leave it, come, wait, in bed, hop in, no.  Those skills were further refined during his training.  Stewie also started the initial stages of NACSW nosework training for enrichment during his long healing process. He enjoyed finding treats and kibble in boxes and other containers and on natural lawn objects like rocks, tree limbs, and lawn furniture.  We are grateful to UCDVMTH's Fracture Program for Rescues for allowing us the opportunity to repair his leg and to the shelter vet who brought his case to the attention of this program to avoid amputating his leg. Despite the pain of his fractured tibia at the ER and in the shelter, he was such a good-natured boy.  Stewie's care meant coordination amongst an extensive team, beginning with the ER staff at the hospital that treated him immediately after being hit by a car, the shelter vet and staff when he was surrendered for lack of funds to repair his leg, UCDVMTH veterinarians, and staff, and our rescue volunteers managing many details regarding transportation, medications, surgery and follow up visits including rehab consult with Integrative Medicine to develop the plan to ease him into full use of his leg.  All accomplished, a success story for everyone involved, including his multiple primary and relief foster homes, who have loved and cared for him.  Stewie is an active, energetic, and, at times, handful shepherd, so he'll thrive in a home where he can enjoy regular exercise and play. He'll be a great companion for someone who enjoys outdoor activities like hiking. He's loved hiking in Tahoe and is happy to put in four-plus miles on trails. He lives with multiple resident shepherds, adores the foster puppies who come through his foster home including them in play with his balls and mouthy games that go on forever, and has a couple of BFFs at Canine Purpose who match his play style. Stewie can be pushy/rude  in play and if paired with another dog will need a neutral dog as a companion. His current mates are very dog savvy, he respects the older dogs and plays well with the younger ones. Stewie has been adopted twice by folks who found his looks captivating, fell in love with and yet returned him within weeks before he could settle. They admitted to overlooking his true shepherd personality and guidance from his foster families and trainers. If you're interested in Stewie, please note that his fosters will be very selective after Stewie's two adoption experiences and will want to meet multiple times including with his trainers before commiting to launch Stewie to a forever home. He is very loved and would remain with his foster families permanently except one frequently travels for work and the other is at the permanent dog limit set by their animal control jurisdiction.  Take advantage of this opportunity to see if you are a match for this beautiful shepherd. Please select the adopt button and fill out an application for us to connect about Stewie.  ##1641104##

Story
Mia is a wonderful 4.5-year-old female GSD with a strong loyalty streak and social drive. She is high-energy, highly intelligent and empathetic. Mia loves her family and always seeks new friends. Mia loves meeting new people and does so with ears down, tail wagging, and a desire to create a bond. She views each new person as a new member of her ever-expanding pack.   She also loves meeting new dogs and is really excited about the possibility. She wants to play with every dog she sees, so she asks new dogs to play with her, using powerful play bows, lunges, little barks, and even porpoise pokes to get the new dog to play with her. Occasionally, the new dog rejects her pushy initiation, and the process can escalate temporarily.  Mia has never tried to hurt another dog, but she does stand her ground when things escalate. She has become great friends with some of the dogs with whom this has happened. She is also excellent at adapting her play style to the other dogs' to maximize their enjoyment. As a dominant female, she can be very pushy with some submissive dogs and is better suited to live with neutral or confident dogs. Interestingly, Mia's fine with some submissive dogs. From the many canine friends she has made, she learned to chase a ball, which is her primary game for fun and exercise. She loves chasing a well-thrown ball at the park. Mia needs daily mental and emotional stimulation. She is very smart and needs to figure things out regularly or have a job that challenges her mind. She also needs to bond with her family daily and will let you know with direct eye contact (another trait she loves). Mia would be a terrific addition to a household that's into dog sports like nosework, tracking, and rally or an active family that enjoys outdoor activities.  Mia feeds free, which works well for her as an only dog. That may be different in a multi-dog environment. She lived with two shepherds in her current home before they passed away. Mia also shared her foster home with three dogs, one tiny but mighty female Yorkie,  a male dominant shepherd, and a female lab-ridgeback mix,  before she was adopted. Mia loves having a pack; the larger the pack, the better or good friends she can play with. Mia's fantastic when she visits homes with a dog or dogs and gets sad whenever her pack shrinks, needing extra support and attention from her people to transition back to a solo dog.  Her perfect home would have another dog or dogs, knowledgable and experienced owners, and kids (she loves kids of all ages). Her foster home also had two kids. She needs a strong leader, or she will constantly push boundaries and take over. She knows more commands than we can remember and picks up new things continually (her latest thing was hearing me ask her to stay on the sidewalk or get on the sidewalk, and now those are commands for her). With a high prey drive, Mia is a fan of chasing squirrels and birds, which could translate into an inability to live with chickens and cats.  Mia has been fantastic in every situation we have put her in, including riding in any vehicle, learning new rules for different houses, and adapting to other people and dogs. She has excellent household manners.  Mia is with her adoptive family in Arizona, where they moved last year. We're seeking a qualified adopter in the Phoenix area, and if an appropriate match is available in Northern California, we can arrange for her to return for a meeting.  ##891796##

Story
Hey everyone, I'm Gwen. My littermate Griffin, with whom I've been sharing my foster homes, just headed to his forever family. I'm soloing now in rescue and loving it. I just spent the weekend in a backup foster home as one of my foster homes headed out on vacation. Griffin and I hung out with two senior cats, a rottweiler and an Anatolian shepherd mix; we are cat workable with suitable cats or cat, just like Martyn, who shared his foster home with two cats. We also learned to use the doogie door there.  I got to tag along to Griffin's meeting with his adopters since it was happening at Paws n Play Community Center, which has many enrichment opportunities for puppies. I loved exploring their training room, running through the tunnel, and adoring the pit with the crunch cloth. We showed off our sitting skills, ability to listen, and motivation. I met the little kids Griffin will be living with too, and I was very gentle with the little ones.  I love lounging in the yard, sunning myself in the cool mornings of this heatwave. And my ears are on the cusp of turning into radars with a mind of their own right now.   I was one of the three puppies who arrived with my littermates Griffin and Woody in the middle of June. Many thanks to two additional fosters who raised their hands for our littermates, Kuma and Martyn, to leave the shelter a week after we arrived for ShepHeroes foster homes.  We all arrived in various stages of being symptomatic for an upper respiratory infection from our shelter stay, which cleared up with antibiotics pretty quickly. Griffin and I headed to the vet this week for an exam, our booster vaccines, and our next monthly heartworm, flea, and tick preventatives. I'm a healthy 20 lb gal who adored the vet and staff during my exam. They had this fantastic, wonderful cheese stuff; I didn't even notice that they gave me a shot. And I got lots of snuggles since I love melting into arms.  Griffin and I are sharing our foster homes—we have two and split our time between them. Part of the week, we're living with a foster family with two kids and two resident shepherds, and the other part is in an adult foster home with three shepherds. We're too young to stay long hours alone due to our foster families' hybrid work schedules. So they worked out a sharing arrangement where we'll have consistent schedules and rules between our foster homes. A little bit about me:  I'm the only girl in our litter and the cautious and observant one. I liked hanging out under things at the shelter if I wasn't snuggling right into my littermates. Once we arrived at our foster homes, the boys immediately embarked on an adventure, and I was busy telling them that it was dangerous to wander around and that we should stick together. But you know, boys. They were soon climbing on rocks, exploring the yard, and ready to meet the resident dogs. Once I saw they were fine, I joined in the exploration too. However, I made sure to bark first at new things, just in case. They just rushed headlong into the experiences. Now that we've settled into a routine, my foster family says I'm the smart one. I observe things and do them right the first time like the screen door and the kiddie pool so we can splash around. I'm still responsible, alert to things, and pretty mellow.  I ride very nicely in the car, and so do my littermates. I recently spent a day with Martyn; it was only him and me. We were so excited to see each other; he's a bit like Griffin - all action.  When our foster families can't keep an eye on us, we spend our time in a pen or a pen area attached to our crate. We nap and play in our pen area and, at night, usually snuggle into our crate, sleeping right on each other. Griffin needed to wake people up by barking during the potty time and rushing to do his business outside. I was initially more casual about it; I liked to lounge outside, breathe fresh air, and then go potty. If not, given that gradual time, I would select to go on a potty pad right when we returned. All that potty pad business is in my past, but I would like more time outside to go potty.  Once my foster family understood my patterns, we got everything sorted out.  Pens are necessary to keep us safe from all the trouble we can get into when our fosters can't keep a close eye on us, I mean I thought the sprinkler head was just perfect to chew on for my aching teeth. We get lots of toys to play with, bully sticks, and lots of company to keep us from getting into trouble chewing the wrong things.  We've been out for stroller rides since we can't safely have paws on the ground everywhere until we're 16 weeks old when we'll be considered fully vaccinated. The kids in our foster home adore us, and now that school is out, they love having puppies to dote on. And we love being loved by everyone in our foster homes.  Our folks say our forever families should have either shepherd or similar breed experience raising puppies since this is a lifetime commitment to get through the equivalent of the teenage years in our growth. Consistency, training, and structure help raise neutral adult dogs. If that's you, click the adopt button so our people can contact you.  ##2081120##
