Story
🐾 Adoption Notice 🐾 Meet Max, a sweet and lovable German Shepherd looking for his forever home! Max is 3 years old and adores kids, dogs, and cats. He enjoys going for walks, hiking in nature, cuddling up, and playing with his favorite balls. Max is full of energy and requires an owner who can devote time to his exercise and care needs. As a German Shepherd, Max can be a bit anxious at times and may bark when he's scared or nervous, but don't let that fool you – he's a big sweetheart at heart! Max is seeking an understanding owner who can provide a supportive and patient environment. Max is also deeply bonded with his younger brother Milo, and we are open to rehoming them together for a perfect family match. We are heartbroken to have to rehome Max and Milo, but we want to ensure they find a loving and caring home. If you are ready to welcome this dynamic duo or give Max a loving home, please reach out to us.

Story
Bella is an 8 month old German shepherd x husky lovebug. There ain't a time she won't lift up a hind leg for a belly rub. I'm looking for a home where she would be loved, nurtured and supported to continue growing into a happy and healthy lady. Bella is great with children 5+, she has assisted in greeting children and parents alike on their way to school during crossing guard assignments, giving gentle kisses. I caution supervision however due to her larger size, she reckons she is a lapdog - often forgetting her size. Bella is great with other dogs. While larger than our family husky, she submits and is still playful with our husky. I'm looking to rehome Bella due to our boy not taking to her, they tend to play, however he does not eat properly anymore and has developed other characteristics not favorable to his health. I'd love for her to go to a home where she will be loved instead of ending up at a shelter.

Story
Hello! My name is Eva, and I’m looking for someone very special. I’m young, super smart, and quite handsome, if I do say so myself :) I haven’t had an easy time in life though, and my foster mom says I’ve been doing a pretty good job making up for lost time. I’m now house and crate trained, ride great in a car (love that!), and can do lots of commands: sit, shake, down, rollover, spin, leave it (not my favorite!), and focus. I also love to jog alongside my foster mom’s son, woohoo! My loyalty and devotion are endless, once I bond with you, I promise!

Story
Meet Cub, a little pup with a big personality! Cubbie is a three month old pup whose breed is a mystery, but we are guessing Shepherd mix. He is great in the crate and loves food, so training him will be fun. He plays hard with the big dog in his foster home, but would be fine as a solo dog. Not phased by kid noises and bikes, he would be a great addition to a family. He has learned how to play fetch and is ready to be your partner in all the games. He will need an adopter who is home good part of the day and committed to training and socializing. The adoption fee for this puppy is $475, which helps with the cost of routine vet care. A $250 spay/neuter deposit is required at time of adoption. This fee covers spay/neuter at one of PetConnect's preferred veterinary partners. If the adopter chooses to use their own veterinarian, the deposit will be returned with proof of sterilization. PetConnect Rescue cannot guarantee the exact breed of any animal in our care. The breed listed is based on any background we may have been provided, and the general appearance of the animal at the time they enter our system. For more information, please email cmacdonald@petconnectrescue.org **If you're viewing this on Petfinder, please visit www.petconnectrescue.org to complete our non-binding application.**

Story
Our Adoption Radius is a maximum of 60 miles from zip code 20906. We do not promote our dogs as house trained or allergy friendly. Thomas is probably the smallest shepherd mix we have come across. We can pretty much say he's more a chi than a GSD. Fully vetted, neutered and heartworm negative. At almost 6 months old, he weighs 25lbs. Whether or not his very sad start in life being found skin and bones may have stunted his growth, remains to be seen, but what we do know for a fact is this boy is described as a joy to be around, friendly, excitedly barks at other dogs to play with him, and his wiggly butt just keeps swinging :) Thomas will be arriving into MD on May 3 and is looking for a foster home to welcome him. If you're thinking about adopting, fostering Thomas will give you a glimpse of what dog ownership entails. We process two foster applications per pet as it's not uncommon for a foster to back out last minute. Think you can handle the cuteness?
