Story
Meet Maximo! Maximo, or Max/Maxi as we call him here, is a German Shepherd who is a good boy but needs a Shepherd savvy person in his life to help him be the best dog he can be. He is very sweet and when he loves you he LOVES you. He does have some fence/barrier reactivity which is common with Shepherds with people they don't know. He gets along with most dogs, but not all. He has lived with cats and small dogs and reportedly did fine and was surrendered due to a new baby coming into the home (we are told he doesn't love small children, but has lived with all older children without problems). He is housetrained and keeps his kennel clean here. He is a big boy and normally is around 80 lbs. His adoption fee is $120 and includes his neuter, microchip, vaccinations and negative heartworm test. Please call 630-553-9256 or email animalcontrol@Kendallcountyil.gov if you are interested in adopting.

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" .

Are you looking for : Handsom, tall, loving, snuggly, cuddly, loyal, playful and super sweet? If so look no further, Thor is your dream boy! He is located in East TN but Out of state is welcome! In fact if you’re seeing this on adopt a pet the cost of transport to your area is included in his adoption fee! Meet Thor! He’s one very sweet loving and handsome fella! He is weary at first meeting new people but it doesn’t take long for him to warm up to you. He is sweet and very playful. He likes to play fetch and is active. He would do best in a home with older kids and without young children. They are so excitable and have so much energy that they tend to make him nervous. He does well with other dogs that are confident but not dominant. Scary or fearful shy or overly excitable dogs make him nervous and fear reactive. He lacks confidence and needs a home that will teach him that he’s a good boy and that he’s safe. He has been fine with small dogs but we have been told NO cats. He is crate trained and is doing well with potty training and not going in the house or his crate. He is current in vaccines, neutered and on flea and tick and heartworm prevention. He is protective of his people and his home. He is craving to be loved and love you back ten fold. We use Rescue Riders for all our pet transport needs because they are so good with our dogs! They are the best. They are also a non profit so it’s a win win for all! Please inquire about him at petpathorg@yahoo.com Application is found at petpath.org
