Story
Auntie Em is a beautiful, young German Shepherd Dog/Pitbull mix (50/50 according to the DNA test). Her dark Brindle coat and copper eyes are simply stunning. She is about 2 years old and weighs 64 pounds. She had puppies when she arrived here and was a great mama, but now the puppies are all adopted and she is looking for a wonderful home. She is very smart, obedient, powerful, and full of energy. Please research both breeds. High energy, working dogs require a lot. Check out the Wizard of Oz album on Facebook to see more pics. Auntie Em is particular. She is very prey driven. If it's alive, furry or feathery, and moves she will chase it. She has interacted with various sized dogs. Sometimes its playful, sometimes its not. She does not like when other dogs get in her face or show any dominance. There is not a lot of warning when she's upset. A new owner will have to work with her and learn her cues and redirect. No kitties. She has loved all people she has met so far with proper introduction. She is CRAZY food motivated. She is gentle when taking treats, but is bit protective of her bowl and yummy treats. Because of this, no children under 12 in the household for this gal. Em will definitely benefit from some obedience training to polish her manners. She is doing excellent with housebreaking and knows sit and come. She will go in a crate, but she does not love it. She is micro-chipped, UTD on vaccines and spayed. Em is going to make a wonderful pet for the right owner. Is it you? If you are interested, please fill out an application on www.homesfurhounds.org.

Story
Meet Randal, a handsome two year old male German Shepherd affectionately called "Bud Bud". In a short time, he has made great strides and would benefit from an adopter with breed experience that is committed to his on-going training and can also meet his need for physical activity in order to help him thrive in his new home. Not much is known about Randal's past as he came to HHS as a stray, and was initially fearful and uncertain who to trust. Like a typical shepherd, Randal is cautious of new people but LOVES playing with his balls and makes friends quickly that way. When relaxed and comfortable, Randal has slowly begun to reveal a goofy side, picking up water bowls in the play yard and screeching in excitement at his jolly ball.

Story
Meet Lola. Lola is a very special dog that was rescued 5 years ago when she was a puppy. She has never had an accident and has never run away. She does not climb on furniture and is not aggressive whatsoever. My family and I are moving out of the country, and because of her size and breed, it is extremely difficult to ship her or find airlines that even take her.

Duke is a great dog and a real charmer. However he is a large dog and needs more room than I can supply. I bought him from a local breeder and he is AKC registered, has all his shots and is fixed. He is 8 months old and has alot of energy. I am also disabled and he needs someone with a bit more energy than this old man has.

Story
Trigger just turned 2 on Nov 14th 2023. He is a happy, healthy, friendly and very active young german shepherd. This is not easy for me to do, but I honestly believe that he needs an environment with a younger family and possibly more space. He only has a little over a 1/4 acre to explore and play here. Furthermore I work a lot and sometimes late so I believe it's really not fair to him. He comes with a crate, that he is very comfortable in, three dog beds, plenty of bones and chew toys, and more importantly, indestructible throwing balls that he LOVES to fetch! That is his mission in life. He comes when told and is fine on a leash.

Story
Sway is nearly two, she is a very happy, loving high energy girl. She has been kennel trained and is accustomed to spending time in a fenced yard and inside the house. She is still very much puppy personality, curious even though sometimes skeptical of new situations but approaches situations with a smile on her face and carries a contagious energy and attitude. She would benefit from an active household or an experienced handler to manage her energy but she will wind down when it's time when indoors after a moment of theatrics at times.
