Story
*Courtesy Post for German Shepherd Rescue, Inc. Please contact them at www.gsrescue1.org for more information since she is not in our rescue.* Approximately 8 months old, Valentina is a Shepherd mix picked up as a stray in Chicago by CACC. She is a peanut at 38lbs! While she definitely should still have formal training, she is relatively easy to walk on leash and has great manners meeting dogs and people passing by. When on a schedule and supervised, she’s doing a good job working towards potty training and crate training, and can go overnight without a potty break. Vale learned “sit” in 5 minutes and will work for food! Little Valentina loves stuffed and chew toys and is very playful - by herself and with other dogs. She is currently being fostered with two adult shepherds (lovely dog manners), cats (relatively neutral) and older children (fun!) Vale is definitely still learning about the world and barks at strangers in the house or if she gets nervous. A little anxious in the car, but realizing little by little it comes with fun adventures, treats and quality time with people. Big time need to chew on things and needs some work with her puppy mouthing as she doesn’t have much bite inhibition, but she’s a sweet soul with a lot of energy and a lot of love to give! If interested in Valentina, apply at www.gsrescue1.org.

Story
If you follow us on Facebook, you already know Luna's story. She came to us from animal care very pregnant. She had complications during birth and had to be taken to the vet for an emergency c-section and immediate spay. Luna had 12 puppies and 8 survived. You might think all those kids would wear her out, but no. Luna is always ready to run, play, chew a bone and have fun. When it's time to relax, Luna thinks she is a lap dog. Luna has the most soulful eyes. It's almost like she is talking to you through her eyes. Just don't ask Luna about her baby daddies. She prefers to keep their identities a secret. It's no secret that every human who meets Luna adores her. Luna is loyal to her people and is already housebroken and knows basic commands like fetch, paw and sit._________________________________________________________________________Adoption Donation for Luna is $ 525.00WANT TO MEET LunaThe first step would be for you to go to our website at www.aear.org and then to the “Adopting a Pet” page to read about our Adoption Process which will answer many of your questions and then to fill out an Adoption Application.Also, please visit our very active Facebook Page for updates on Luna and our other adoptable pets with AEAR - www.facebook.com/aear.orgAll our animals available for adoption are living in foster homes.

Story
Billie is living in a foster home. Please submit an application from our website and/or email dogs@heartlandanimalshelter.org to learn if you are a match! Scroll through her pictures to see all her cute video content! Are you looking for a loyal, chill, fun, and loving companion? If you are, then we already have a lot in common. My name is Billie and I am a beautiful, wise, 7-year-old, German Shepard with a loyal, gentle and nurturing soul. What I dream most about, is being by my special person's side. I see us hanging out in a quiet home where we can be all chill and cozy by the TV, having fun with enrichment activities, and going for lots of walks. I also want to show off my talents, and continue to learn new tricks and skills with you. You can think of me as a bit of a social introvert. Being with people one-on-one is something I love best. I feel most comfortable in very small groups of people and I do prefer people to other animals. New dog friends and strangers can sometimes overwhelm me. The volunteers and staff at Heartland rave about how fast I catch onto things, my snuggling abilities, and gentleness while on walks. I keep my kennel clean since I always do my business outside during my walks. Honestly, the folks are so good to me at Heartland, and I love my routine. Even though I am very happy here, have made a ton of human friends, and have settled into a great routine, I sometimes overhear the wonderful peeps at the shelter talk about how much they want me to find my forever person that I can call my own. I know that's what they want for me, even though they are really going to miss me a lot. I also know they will be dedicated to working with me and you so that we can get to know each other and have the best relationship ever. More than anything, I want to live out my best life with my special person who will make a forever commitment to me. I prefer a quiet, adult home, with one, possibly two people to love, and would like to be your one and only pet. In return, I will love you with my entire being and will make you very proud of me. Plus, there are some added bonuses, my adoption fee has been sponsored by a generous donor and I have a $250 training scholarship! My friends at Heartland are dedicated to helping us get to know each other and will support us along the way. What more can we ask for? Please schedule to meet me real soon, I have so much love to give. Billie's adoption fee is sponsored! This animal is spayed, up to date on core vaccines, and Heartworm negative

Nicks is living in a foster home. Please submit an application from our website and/or email dogs@heartlandanimalshelter.org to learn if you are a match! Nicks is a gorgeous 3 year old black shepherd originally from Florida. Nicks found an amazing adopter who loved her so much, but sadly he passed away unexpectedly and she is now back in our care. We would love to see this special girl find a new perfect person for her super soon! Like many shepherds, Nicks can be weary of new people and takes a little time to let them in. However, once you are in her circle you are in it for life and she will be ready to shower you with love! For example, our staff went to visit her, we hadn't seen her in almost two years, and she greeted us with hugs and kisses. Nicks is currently in foster care with one of her amazing volunteer friends and here are the cliff notes about her! -housebroken -crate-trained for even a full workday -loves to go on walks -loves to cuddle but isn't overly clingy -loves to do enrichment and work on new commands -she was a tester dog for us at the shelter, and loves to meet new dog friends, but in the home, she prefers to be an only child. She does amazing in doggy daycare! Nicks' adoption fee is sponsored by a generous donor! This animal is spayed, up to date on core vaccines, and Heartworm negative.

Story
We got Luna at the Middlewest German Shepherd Kennel in Wonder Lake, IL in July 2018. She will be six years old this May. She is house trained, kennel trained and knows a variety of commands. She loves to train as any working breed does. We are looking for a home that can provide both the mental and physical stimulation she requires. She is extremely affectionate, loyal, protective and still exudes a puppy-like energy and enthusiasm. She has been an amazing family pet and has done wonderfully with our young children. We decided not to list a price for Luna because it is not something we are interested in, we truly want to find the right home for her. Her wellbeing is the most important thing to us. Due to our living circumstance we can no longer support her needs and she will truly be missed.
