Story
MARR covers Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Wisconsin. Zelda Marie is a wonderful little girl who loves everyone she meets! When people come to her Foster’s house, she will greet them and flop over at their feet for pets. This Good Girl is crate trained; she will quietly sleep in there on her dog bed all night BUT she will happily sleep with you if invited! When she is left in her crate during the day while her Fosters run errands, she will bark and whine, wishing she was joining them, but only for a short time. She quickly settles in, happily chewing on her Nylabone. Her Fosters throw a couple little treats into the crate to encourage her to go in and then shut the door behind her. She shows no inclination to chew on shoes or anything really, and she is housebroken. Zelda is happy to lie at your feet or settle in front of a window or patio door and watch the world go by. On rare occasions, she will get excited and bark at somebody going by on the street. Zelda will gladly join you for a game of Fetch, she LOVES her Jolly Ball and glow-in-the-dark ball. She loves car rides, but she will stand up on the windowsill and put half her body out the window, so we recommend making sure to tether her when in the car for this reason. Zelda loves to go for walks but can pull on the leash, she has been improving as she is getting walked more. She barked and pulled at a dog that was excitedly running and barking behind a fence but is otherwise non-reactive on walks. She is good at the Vet’s office and happy to meet new people. However, after her spay, when coming out of the anesthesia, she was groggy and a bit more reactive. As with many dogs after sedation, extra care should be given. Zelda is almost two and still has some puppy energy! Her Foster tells us that sometimes when she gets the zoomies, she will run around quickly then try to jump up on you, her Foster is working on that behavior, but it could scare a younger or smaller child or scratch someone. She will settle down quickly and happily play fetch or lay near you. The same way, if she is wound up and wants to play; she might want to mouth your hands. Zelda was raised from a puppy in a family with kids under ten, but due to this behavior we think it would be best that she be in a home with older children who won’t be afraid of her. Zelda has an unusual trigger with lawn and garden implements. Not just the mower, but with anything like a hoe, shovel, rake, trimmers. She will bark and bite at the implement as though it is a major threat, her Foster has not been able to redirect her from her fear of these things yet. Zelda was raised with a cat but ended up hurting her back leg chasing the cat upstairs in the original owner’s home. We have not cat tested her and she may or may not be friendly to other cats. Zelda had to have surgery in both hind legs for torn cruciate ligaments. This is common in Rotties due to their joint structures. She has been released by the surgeon with no restriction, however, we encourage a joint supplement to help prevent or at least prolong the arthritis onset that likely will come from the double TPLO. She is fine on walks, but jogging with a runner might be too much and cause her issues down the line. Zelda should be the only dog in the household. She has shown that although she can get along with another dog at times, sometimes she will get overstimulated, and her reaction is to bite a dog nearby (even a dog she has been playing with up to that point). Zelda can be a resource guarder so special attention will need to be used around other dogs. In Zelda’s perfect world, she would be the only Queen in the castle. Zelda will come to her new home with a muzzle, a crate, a dog bed, a no pull harness, a leash and her favorite toys, snuffle ball, blanket, and slow feed dog bowl. She will be well equipped with all the things she is used to. Zelda will be a dog that will love you with all her heart. She really is a great girl.

Story
MARR covers Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Wisconsin. Chapo is being fostered in MO currently. However, transportation is available for adoptions within our coverage area. Chapo is a sweet, loyal, and playful boy who can be a bit nervous meeting new people. He does best when he can come to you on his own terms, at his own pace. He will start sniffing and nudging when he’s ready for pets. Chapo seems to prefer women over men, and can be especially protective of children. He has experience around kids aged 4 and 6 years. While Chapo does not currently live with any small dogs, he has done well with one through a fence. With both male and female large dogs, he is very playful and submissive. It is unknown how he is with cats. Chapo is still learning to heel and how to behave well on a leash. Although he is usually correctable, he will occasionally pull and whine if another dog seems reactive. He does know “sit, down, come, muzzle, shake, and go home (go to his crate).” In fact, he willingly goes into his crate every night. He is not food aggressive, and will wait for permission to eat. While he is still learning how to take treats gently, he is very food motivated and is great at catching them! Chapo has grown and made so much improvement in the time he has been in foster care! He’s a silly, playful pup at heart. Very treat motivated and learned house rules, house and crate training very quickly. He loves his foster family and loves to be near his humans. He also plays well by himself and loves to play with all toys and balls. He also knows when to calm down and will be quiet and sleep all day quietly in his crate if you work nights. He does tend to be skittish and anxious meeting new people, so slow, gradual intro are an absolute must. Please be patient with him and let him come to you on his own terms. When he’s ready to meet you, he typically comes to sniff you on his own. He’ll show he’s uncomfortable by barking at you. Since he is muzzle trained, and this may be the best option when meeting new people.

Story
MARR covers Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Wisconsin. Ace is being fostered in NE currently. However, transportation is available for adoptions within our coverage area. Ace is a playful, sweet and loving boy. He is such a happy dog, all smiles and rolls for belly rubs! Ace is good with adult men and women as well as dog savvy kids, ages 4 and up. He has been good with large dogs; we are unsure how he would do with smaller dogs as well as cats. He LOVES to play rough with other dogs; his Foster tells us he is assertive, not aggressive, but he has a tendency to hump females. Ace does pull on the leash, but his Foster tells us he is improving. He has learned sit, down, kennel and is working on wait, backup and heel. He is Food Motivated and hasn’t met a treat he didn’t like. He will take each one gently, but it never hurts to remind him to mind his manners. Ace will be more than happy to play fetch and chase if you have a ball or anything with a squeaker. Ace does not have food aggression, but he does try to steal treats from other dogs although he has no problem with other dogs being near his food or treats. Ace is Crate Trained and does not have Separation Anxiety. Ace needs his decompression period, but he is such a wonderful, loving and playful pup. He will play fetch and chase for hours and hours before taking a 15min break and going for more. This Good Boy will make a wonderful addition to your home!

Good with dogs,
Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.German Shepherd dogs, as well as the other herding breeds that we have in rescue, are highly active, energetic, working breeds. They require considerable vetting, exercise, socialization, training, leadership and mental stimuli in order to be well-adjusted, well-balanced, and well-mannered dogs. Even if you exercise and play with your dog daily in your fenced yard, you MUST still take your dog out on daily walks and outings in order to work on his/her leash skills, manners, and social skills. These breeds make great additions to active families who will pamper them, but who will also work with them, as they are smart dogs who need leadership, structure, plenty of activity and mental stimulation. If you are new to German Shepherds (and other herding breeds), please research the breed to make sure this is the dog for you. We ask that you consider the time and financial commitment that your German Shepherd (or other herding breed) dog will require before applying for one. Please review the section on our website (www.heartlandgsrescue.org) 'Is a HUGS Dog Right for You?' for additional information. Ava is a spunky, energetic puppy who loves to zoom around the yard, play with toys and other dogs, go for walks, and chew on bones. Once she's burned off energy, she'll snuggle next to you on the couch and maybe give you a few puppy kisses! Ava is great at learning tricks as she is very food-motivated. She knows how to sit and shake and is learning leave it, down and stay.Like any of our dogs, this pretty girl would make a great addition to an active home that will provide the love, structure, good leadership, activity and mental stimulation that her breed needs.  Because of that, Ava's ideal owner will have prior Rottweiler or other similar breed experience.  Even if you exercise and play with your dog daily in your fenced yard, please remember  that you MUST still take your dog out on daily walks and outings, in order to provide sufficient stimulation, ward off boredom, and work on leash skills, and manners.   Ava's adoption fee is $395, all of which goes back into offsetting our high-cost vetting expenses and rescuing more dogs.  We are a 100% volunteer-run rescue group and rely on adoption fees and donations to continue saving lives. Adoption fees include spay/neuter, current on age-appropriate vaccinations, fecal, deworming, flea/tick and heartworm preventative, heartworm tested if old enough (and treated if positive), and microchipped. Please visit http://heartlandgsrescue.rescuegroups.org/info/adoption for more information about our adoption process and requirements, and to apply.   Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.Please review the information in the 'About Us', 'Important Considerations' and 'Adopt' sections on our website menu, as it contains useful information about the breed, adoption fees, the adoption process and our requirements, and how meeting the dogs works.June 13, 2024, 8:38 pm

Story
MARR covers Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Wisconsin. Harley2 is being fostered in WI currently. However, transportation is available for adoptions within our coverage area. Harley2 wants nothing more than to be with her humans. She is a fan of men and women alike, as well as children ages 5 and up! She is happy to see new people and will happily greet them. She is a laid back and overall calm dog who loves sleeping on the sofa and sitting/napping in her Foster’s attached greenhouse. Harley2 does have separation anxiety, if left alone, she will whine and bark. It is perfect that her Foster works from home so she can spend as much time as she can get with her humans either while they work inside the home or outside in the garden. She will be content chewing on a bone outside or burying it in the yard but when she has had enough, she will head to her crate inside and settle in for a nap. She does well in her crate. Harley2 is ALWAYS happy to join you for a car ride or a leashed walk. Harley2’s Foster tells us she does well on walks and does not pull on the leash, for some reason she doesn’t like to do her business while leashed so a yard might be the best situation for her. This Good Girl knows sit, wait, back up, lay down, roll over, shake and kennel up. She takes treats gently and can be hand fed although she isn’t very food or treat motivated. She prefers antlers or bones over toys. We are told that Harley2 would prefer to be the only dog in the home. She will bark and growl at cows and horses, even on her car rides, however, if leashed, she is very good at ignoring the free-range chickens her Fosters have. Harley’s Foster tells us she is a great and calm dog that just wants to be spending time with her people, she will happily be your cuddle buddy on the sofa while you watch tv. Do you have space on your sofa for Harley2?!

Story
MARR covers Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Wisconsin and transportation is available for foster/adoption within those states. Zailey is currently in Indianapolis, IN. Zailey has been looking for her forever home and she keeps getting overlooked. As any pet, Zailey does have her challenges, but she has been working hard to overcome them. Zailey is fully muzzle and crate trained. She has also learned that barking does not get her what she wants, therefore she has resorted to throwing tantrums on the floor and couch. However, if you ask her if she wants a cookie, she snaps right out of it and comes leaping to wherever you are. She is a work in progress and is extremely food motivated so that is helpful with training. She knows sit, down, stay, bedtime, room, outside, inside, off, easy, and leave it. There are a couple of other commands she hasn't fully mastered but she is slowly getting there. Zailey has also almost mastered walking on a loose leash with her head halter, she has also been learning wait when crossing streets. I could go on and on about everything Zailey has learned while staying with her current fosters but that would be a novel. Zailey LOVES toys and even though she loves playing with them she rarely purposely destroys them and would rather throw them around. Zailey is a wonderful dog that just needs reassurance when facing new situations, people, and other dogs. She has learned that if her foster mom is calm then there is no need for her to react, Zailey would do best in a kid free household where she can get all the attention. Princess Zailey is very much spoiled and would love to show you her tricks in exchange for a treat. She needs someone that will be stern with her and hopefully is rottie savvy. Something else that will help her be very successful is following the decompression guide as she will not rest and nap unless she is alone. We believe Zailey could live with another dog in the home but it would require slow introductions and be a laid back dog for the best chance at long term success. Will you be her angel here on earth?
