Story
I received Keith from my uncle who were both German Shepherds, I am not 100% sure if they were both purebred. Keith is 2 years old and will be 3 years in December. He's a very intelligent dog and picks up on tricks and commands rather quickly. As a high temperament breed, he needs room to run around. I currently take him to the park to play fetch and he loves it. Keith grew up with another dog, but is very protective of his owner when other dogs are around. He does not like cats at all and enjoys chasing squirrels up trees. He's a very loyal companion and understands simple commands such as sit, come, and lay down.

Story
He is a good boy, but needs more room to run than I have. He needs to be trained by someone experienced. He is a very strong dog. He's excellent with kids. My daughters can lay on him when he's laying down. He just needs someone that had more time than I do just having my fourth child. If we can find a good home for him with land and the right person to train him, we will wave the rehoming fee. He does have hip dysplasia which showed up when he was young. He was on meds for a short time, it hasn't slowed him down at all. He is currently due for his rabies shot.

Athena is a pure bred German shepherd (no papers filed). Her birthdate is 9/19/23. She is up to date on all vetting needs and comes with record of proof. We have had her since she was 8 weeks old. We purchased her from A family friend whose dog (the mother) had a littler. We are her only owners to date. She is currently in training classes and we will continue until rehomed. She is loyal to whoever she chooses as hers. She loves frisbee and fetching sticks. *She is best suited with dogs similar to her adult size or larger as she has had aggressive issues with our two smaller dogs.

Story
Do you have an “empty nest”? Are you looking for some handsome boy companionship? Great news, your search is over! In addition to my very dapper good-boy looks, I am also an avid ball player and dignified goofball. You may be thinking how in the world I can posses such conflicting personality traits...well I am definitely very regal in my looks and initial demeanor...but once I let my hair down (the shed is real, am I right?) and create a bond with my person, I reveal my more quirky attributes! I love being outdoors; you could even say that I am easily amused. Whether it be playing fetch to my heart's desire or going for a long trail walk (I would probably make a pretty good jogging buddy too). If you have a boat with an empty seat, count me in because I LOVE to swim! Being a German Shepherd, I am one of the 'brighter crayons in the box'. In my free time I like to work with the staff and volunteers to brush up on my basic command skills. They are always telling me what a smart guy I am! Well...I assume that's what they are saying, judging by the treats they give me, I am doing good! Proper introductions to establish a trusting, positive, first impression is a must with me. I am an old fashioned kind of guy. I know I am irresistibly handsome, but I appreciate getting to know each other before getting all touchy-feely. Because of this, I would be happiest in a home without children (or other wondering hands). I do love affection and a good ear rub....but a mutual respect needs to be established first. I also want to be your only side-kick, I am not a social butterfly with other pets, I would much rather hangout with just my person. I have a pretty strong prey drive to keep the stray cat and pesky squirrels out of our yard too....A job I take very seriously. If you are in the market for a dashing side-kick to rid the yard of vermin, submit your adoption application at the website below to see if we are a match! D.O.B 3/30/17 For safety's sake, we are looking for homes with physical fenced in areas. Please fill out our online adoption survey at www.mackenzies.info/adopt/adoption-survey-application/

Story
They call me Snickers because I am a snack. Bonus: I am health and diet friendly! I might not taste like the candy (it is not advised to test that), but I am as good as one! I will even keep you into fitness going for walks; a pleasure you don’t have to feel guilty about! Not only am I friendly on your physique, I am friendly in general. A real people dog that is happy to say hello to everyone around! All my friends at MAS say I’m a real down to earth pooch (they’re so sweet…like candy). It’s been a treat hanging out and making friends with everyone here, but I am ready for my forever home life. I don't care much for furry friend companionship though. I would be much happier as your one and only fur baby. All you have to do now is submit your adoption application at the website below to get the ball rolling and come meet me. Remember, Snickers satisfies! DOB: 11/8/2017 For safety's sake, we are looking for homes with physical fenced in areas.
