Story
Theo is extremely smart and active. He really needs an owner that is experienced with the working line dog breeds. We did a DNA test on him and these two breeds were highest percentage. In training, he has done very well. Before the GSD came in his DNA test, we would describe his disposition as more Malinois. If you love that working line dog, he would excel in agility and scentwork. He loves to train and do drill work. Theo would do very well in a home with a confident female dog. He plays and follows the lead of a female dog in his training program. Seems to push back more with a male dog playmate. No cats at this time, but he is getting worked around cats to "leave it" . Any questions you have, please message us or fill out an application on our website www.promiserescue.org

Story
Hello there, I'm Princess! I've got an abundance of energy and a heart full of love to share. I'm a 5-year-old German Shepherd with a sweet disposition and an appetite to match. My days are filled with play, exploration, and of course, meal times - my favorite! I am also a bilingual queen as well. I may seem a little stressed, but with some patience and understanding, I promise to be your loyal companion. I'm friendly and I love making new friends. I'm waiting for a family to share my love and energy with. Adopting me means gaining a life long friend, a walking partner, and a cuddle buddy. I can't wait to meet you!

German Shepherd Dog

Story
Gunnar is about 12 years old. He’s a mild-mannered boy and kind of an aloof. He was previously adopted out from us back in 2016 and is being returned due to the owners health. He is great with dogs and cats. If the cats run, he will chase them to play. He is good with kids if they approach respectfully. He is housebroken and crate trained but can be left without being in a crate with no destruction. He can get nervous with storms and fireworks but not too bad. He is bell trained to go outside for potty He does okay on the leash unless there is a moving vehicle, then he will pull and circle after his tail. Moving vehicles seem to be a trigger for nervousness. Routine for him: Wake up, and he goes for a 20-minute morning walk. After his walk, he will eat breakfast. His current owner is usually gone 5 hours a day, and on occasion, it's been 8 hours. He does well with no issues in the house. He will get a walk around lunchtime. Dinner is after work and put his kibble in a kong to give stimulation. Je will rest a little to digest his food and then the evening walk Relax and out before bedtime. He is completely vetted and up to date on vaccines. Negative heartworm and is on monthly prevention. We are looking for a foster for Gunnar, preferably someone who is home to help with this transition. He came from a very bad situation before joining our rescue, and he deserves the very best and a place to live out the rest of his life in peace. A Tail of 4 Paws

Rigby

German Shepherd Dog Husky

Male, Young
Munster, IN
Size
(when grown) Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
Details
Not good with kids, Not good with cats, Needs experienced adopter, House-trained,
Story
Rigby is 2yrs. Given to us at 4 wks. Mother Husky, dad GSD. House broken but spends 70% in XL crate, 30% in fenced yard. No funds for shots, neutering or training. No time to train. Too rambunctious and playful for inside, especially with a toddler. He is very smart but he has husky stubbornness sometimes. Loves to play frisbee and catch. We concerned about a large, untrained dog in house with toddler and infant (due 2 wks.) Concerned he might want to dominate if not neutered. He must be re-homed where he can be better cared for and have a better quality of life.
