Nova is guesstimated to be around 3-5 years old or so.  It's often hard to tell.  She just had her heartworm treatment and is resting up.  She will be available for adoption soon.  She's a very sweet girl and very friendly.

Nova was used as a breeder dog and has some arthritis on her spine, and hips are not in the the best of shape.  This can happen from irresponsible breeding.  She has an odd gate, but is not in any pain, and for now, our vet has her on a bone and joint supplement.    

Nova is learning leash work and crate training.  She's not a fan of the crate, but will tolerate it.  When left out, she hasn't been destructive.

 She's very excitable around other dogs when on leash, and we are working on this as well.  She's been friendly with her foster brother and sister.  

More evaluation to come for this girl.  

If you think Nova might be the right fit for you, please consider submitting an application, so we can learn more about you.

Jed  is available and ready to find his forever home.  

Jed is 12 months old.  He was not socialized with other dogs, and was nervous and reactive of them when first coming into our program.  He's been doing well with his foster male and female dog friends, but we feel a home without other dogs might be best. 

Experienced owner/handler/trainer would be able to help work in a playful, submissive male or female resident dog.  He loves to run and play.  He has a rough play style and needs guidance with starting relationship with new dog.   

No cats for Jed.  He won't hurt them, but will chase and fixate.  Experienced owner who has outlets for cats and experience with this, may still want to consider Jed.

Jed missed out on a lot of basic training.  He's very smart and learns very quickly.  He's come a long way with his leash work and manners, and will need to continue this.  

His very thin at nearly 70lbs, and he may top out around 85+lbs once he's put on weight and finishes filling out.

Jed will need a devoted adopter who will work with him every day, and keep up his good manners and exercise.  He would play fetch all day if he could, but he's also learning to relax and self entertain, although he prefers human interaction.  He would make a great walking/hiking companion or scent work type training/Obedience/some type of job. 

He's also learned to be very good about relaxing and chewing on a bone at your feet.  

Jed has great potential for someone that would like to do scent work, or some other kind of work with him.  He will bring the right person a lot of joy.

Jed will not do well in a busy house hold with young children. He needs daily structure and jobs to do daily.  He's a great dog for the person who has the time, and want/need for a highly intelligent, job seeking German Shepherd. 

If you think Jed might be the right fit for you, please consider submitting an application, so we can learn more about you.
