Story
  Lilly loves the company of people! Percolating with typical puppy energy at just a year old, she loves going on walks, chewing on her bones, and playing fetch. But her absolute favorite game is playing tug and she will rope you in for an energetic round any chance she gets! Lilly can feel uncertain around other dogs so she needs to be the only pup in the house, but she has been through lots of training and and can’t wait to show you how well she walks in heel. When it comes time to sniff, she knows 'free' and loves to explore fields and tall grassy areas where she often finds a nice long stick to claim as her own hidden treasure to carry around proudly. She knows all of her commands and is eager for someone willing to keep up with her training to keep her mentally and physically stimulated. She would do best in a home where someone is around frequently and due to her puppy energy, would prefer the company of older kiddos.  Lilly can be a bit timid at first, but offer her a treat and she'll be your best friend forever! Animal Rescue of the Rockies believes every pet should find a wonderful and caring home. To ensure each pet finds the best possible home, we ask that you fill out our adoption application so we can learn more about you and your household. We review each application received in the order they're submitted and will contact you within 48 hours (please check your spam folder for our emails). If your home sounds like a good match for you and the pet, we will connect you with our dogs' foster parents to chat more in-depth. If both you and the foster agree that the dog is a good fit then a 'meet and greet' is set up. We require applicants' dogs to meet ours to ensure they get along. We'll ask you to read and sign our adoption agreement and pay the adoption fee to finalize the adoption when it comes time. Our adoption fees help cover the costs of saving more lives!  A home visit will be scheduled within one week of your new pet going home with you.  The adoption fee for this pet is $300.  Our adoption fee covers the following: Spay/neuter Microchip DAPP vaccinations as age-appropriate for the dog. Adopters shall be responsible for all DAPP boosters after adoption. Rabies vaccinations as age-appropriate for the dog. Adopters shall be responsible for any rabies vaccinations after adoption. Please fill out an adoption application by clicking  here . Please give us 48 hours to review your application and respond to you. (Remember to check your spam folder for our emails!) We want our pets to go to a lifelong new home, so thank you for your patience during the adoption process! Please email dogs@arrcolorado.org for more information, as we can't accept calls at this time.PLEASE NOTE:  The breed listed is the information we've received from the shelter.  Shelters usually guess at the breed, so there is no guarantee, as we don't DNA test our foster pets.  Here is some interesting info on breed identification:  https://arrcolorado.org/category/puppy-dog-tips/ Our adoption process is: 1. Fill out our Adoption Application online.  We'll contact you within 48 hours to answer any questions you may have about the pet. 2. If the pet looks like a great match, we'll schedule a meet and greet and ask you to fill out our online Adoption Agreement if you'd like to proceed with adopting.  Once you've completed the Adoption Agreement and pay the pet's Adoption Fee, you can arrange to pick up your new furry family member!

Story
Oaky is a 7 year old neutered GSD. He’s a very obedient, friendly, and energetic dog who unfortunately needs to be an only dog as he does not get along well with canine roommates. He’s good with cats and people and would do great as an only dog with active parents!    For more information, contact 978-319-3244 or ryan.d.jallad@gmail.com.     This dog is a courtesy listing and not one of our dogs.

Story
Tony was originally adopted in 2019 when he was puppy. He has lived his whole life in New Mexico until the beginning of this year when he moved to Colorado. That is when he came into my care. My landlord has changed and now Tony is a restricted breed at my apartment. I am not in a position where I can move locations currently. I don't have friends or family willing to take him in for the remainder of my lease, so I am hoping to find Tony a new forever home. Tony is a lively, loyal companion with a goofy personality. He can be nervous around strangers and other pets, but he comes around after an introduction. He has never bitten anyone, but he can be very expressive. He is current on his Rabies shot but other vaccinations may be needed. He has not had any medical problems to my knowledge, except for allergies. Switching his diet has helped with that. He has been under someone else's care until this year, but they are unable to take him back either. Tony is a good dog overall.

Story
I've been sponsored by the Petfinder Kia Grant to help reduce adoption fees. Thanks to the wonderful Petfinder Foundation my adoption fee is only $25.00! Hiya, I'm Finn! I am a 3 year old German Shepherd/Husky mix (best guess). I'm quite the chatterbox. I love to 'talk' to anyone who'll listen. It's my way of saying, 'Hey, let's be friends!' I've got enough energy to keep up with the most active of families, but I'm also a champion snuggler when it's time to wind down. I'm looking for a forever home with someone who loves playtime and cuddles as much as I do. If you need a brave, loyal, and hilarious sidekick, I'm your guy! I do good with other dogs as long as we are properly intoduced. However, I do need a home without cats as I like to chase them. I woul ddo best in a home iwth older children due to my active nature. Did I mention I'm working on training right now? Well I am and I can tell you that I am the best at 'sit' and 'down' that any dog could ever be! Adopt me and I promise you won't regret it. If you're interested in adopting me, fill out an adoption application online at www.polkcountyhumanesociety.org/adopt where you will also find a link to request an appointment to meet me. Some pets are in foster homes or may already have an appointment scheduled, so the appointment is important to make sure I will be available to meet you when you come. Polk County Humane Society is located in Bolivar, Missouri, but also makes transports to the Denver, CO, Des Moines, IA and Minneapolis, MN areas twice a month. For potential adopters in those areas, we can do a virtual visit using FaceTime or another app. Just request an appointment using the same link, but note that you want the visit to be virtual and we will call you at the time of the visit once it is confirmed. For long distance transports, there is an additional $100 fee to cover the cost of the transport ($65) and a health certificate from a veteinarian ($35). Going that last mile home for our sweet pets! ##1783284##

Story
Name: Chief Breed: German Shepherd Mix Sex: Neutered male Age: 9 Weight: 76 Needs Experienced Adopter Good with dogs? Yes, Chief is good with other gentle, friendly dogs who will be respectful of his boundaries. He may enjoy hanging out quietly at first, then take a nice walk with his new friend. Good with cats? No Good with kids? Yes, Chief could feel safe with calm, peaceful children 12+ who respect and understand his shy nature. Energy level: Low, Chief loves to relax outside, summer or winter! He will lie and soak up the sunshine in a sunny, private yard with a high fence. Medical/Behavioral needs: Chief is a big, fluffy, gloriously handsome boy, but on the inside he feels like a little dog who is timid and shy. He is afraid of most things that are loud, scary and new. He is slowly but steadily blossoming with loving foster care and gradual introductions to other safe animals. Rewards and treats help him open up to show his adorably silly side! He loves chicken and hot dogs and will eagerly push his head into a treat bag for more! Animal Characteristics: Chief is a sweet and sensitive soul looking for a forever home where he can feel safe, protected and loved for just who he is. This good boy needs a patient adopter who can relax alongside him and let him come out of his shell. Chief is immensely deserving of his very own “happily ever after” adoption story. Please learn more about the adoption process and fill out an application at www.pawsco.org/adopt/adoption-process. You can also contact my friends at PawsCo at adopt@pawscoadoptions.org if you have questions. I look forward to meeting you!

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. AdoptaGSD.org   Please consider that some of these dogs have been abandoned or ignored by their previous owners, having little interaction with someone who cares about them. When adopted, they will need time to adjust to the changes in their life. Hi, my name is Paws, and I'm a beautiful six year old GSD who was surrendered to FRGSR by my former owner, along with my sister Alia, when our owner had to move to care for his elderly relatives and dogs weren't allowed. Until now, living with him has been all we've known. I/we have not been socialized with other people or dogs. Since arriving, my sister has found her forever home, but I'm still waiting for my person to come along. For several months, I've been living in a foster home with other dogs and I'm doing well with the male dogs. I've learned some obedience and I'm crate trained. I would love to find my forever person or family soon. If you are interested, please submit an online application at adoptagsd.org. My adoption fee is $350. Update: I am now living in a foster home where I'm the only pet and I'm having tons of fun being pampered by my foster mom. She says I'm young at heart and she takes me on daily nice, long walks because I have such great leash manners. She says I love to ride in the car with both back windows down so I can stick my head out to say hi to everyone! I also love to play with toys and my mom says I've not chewed any of them up! When it's time to relax, I love to begin by having my mom massage my head. I'll often lay my head in her lap to let her know it's time.  I'll then often take a nap on my back with both of my feet sticking straight up in the air! I'm protective and I alert my mom if someone comes to the door. I've waited for my forever person to come along for a really long time, and I'm hoping my special person is out there somewhere waiting to adopt me!  Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.

When adopted, they will need time to adjust to the changes in their life. Hi, my name is Emery, and I'm a happy 3 year old mix who was recently returned to FRGSR because I wouldn't leave the cats alone. Prior to my adoption, I did live in a foster home with cats and I did fine. My former owners also mentioned that I was misbehaving with their other dog, but in my last foster home, I did fine with the other dogs. I need an adopter who will set clear boundaries for me and praise me when I obey the rules and correct/redirect me when I venture off course. Why am I at a German Shepherd Rescue you ask? I was sent here as a puppy to get out of the way of Hurricane Ida a few years ago in Louisiana. I'm available for foster-to-adopt and my adoption fee is $200.

When adopted, they will need time to adjust to the changes in their life. Hi, my name is Sasha Jane, and I'm a beautiful three year old GSD who is in need of a new home. I was adopted out to a loving couple last December, and it turns out that I may need a confident male canine companion to help build my own confidence. My owners invested lots of time and resources into training, vet specialists, working with a behaviorist, and even trying acupuncture and herbal medicines, but I'm still struggling. I have a loving, sweet personality with my owners, but they are hoping a home can be found for me with another dog as I did better in my foster home with other dogs around. My owners feel that they cannot meet my needs and they are hoping the rescue can find a home for me with someone who can. I would love to find someone who will take me on lots of outdoor adventures, play fetch with me, and then I'll curl up next to them at the end of the day.

AdoptaGSD.org   Please consider that some of these dogs have been abandoned or ignored by their previous owners, having little interaction with someone who cares about them. When adopted, they will need time to adjust to the changes in their life. Hi, my name is Gustaf, and I'm a two year old male GSD who was adopted out sixteen months ago when I was a cute puppy and recently returned because I was given too much freedom which led to problems. I ended up chasing bicycles and more recently, I grabbed the mailman's calf. I went from a home with my family to living in a boarding kennel because all foster slots are currently full, and this change has been hard on me. I'm guarded when I first meet new people, but I do warm up over time with slow introductions. The rescue is hoping to find a home without young children as they can open doors accidentally, which leads to problems because, like most GSDs, I like to protect my pack and turf. I'm a good boy who needs to understand boundaries. The rescue is now working with me on this. I'm an active boy who would love to find an adopter who will invest the time, resources, and energy into training abd properly socializing me so I can be an obedient dog. If you are interested, please submit an online application at adoptagsd.org. My adoption fee is $400.  Update: I've been living with a foster who's also a dog trainer and I'm making nice progress. I do have some anxiety but my mom has found that CBD treats work well for me. I have done well around other dogs, but I don't care to have them in my personal space yet, but we're working on this. I LOVE to play fetch! I've also done well with the resident kitties. I've been non-reactive to people and other dogs while on walks. I know sit/stay, down/stay, come, heel and place. I need a patient, GSD-experienced adopter.
