Available Dogs

Adopting a German Shepherd Dog is a serious commitment of up to 10-15 years. We're looking to find our dogs forever homes so their lives won't be disrupted again.

In general, we don't know the background or medical history of dogs we bring into our program, nor can we guarantee their temperaments, behaviors, or health. We base the information on each dog on observations made while the dog is in a foster home in our program.

Since not all homes are the same, dogs may display different behaviors after being adopted than what we've observed. Similarly, just because a dog has lived with or tested tolerant of cats or small dogs, does NOT mean it will automatically be tolerant of cats or small dogs in a new home. It may take time and supervision while the animals adjust.

All of our dogs are spayed or neutered as required of all California shelters and rescues by the California Food & Agriculture Code Section 30503. They are also current on all vaccines and microchipped.

Not all dogs will be at all adoption events. We don't reserve dogs for adoption by telehone or email. You MUST first submit an adoption application.

    Riva

    Female 3.3 years Level 2.5

    Hi, I'm Riva. I'm shapely, single, full of fun... and looking for a commitment with someone who has experience with inquisitive females. I love hopping in a car and visiting new places but I am just as happy just going on a walk or just hanging around the house.    Are we a match?   Sweet and willing, pretty Riva wasn’t given much of a chance during her young life.  When she came into rescue, we realized she didn’t have any training or manners so we (and she) had to start from square one. Riva may be three years old but she is really a puppy-at-heart.    Riva has wonderful house manners, is crate trained, housebroken, is a great traveler, and has a great alarm bark.  Riva is also quite the fast learner and has learned “sit”, “shake”, “down”, and “come”. She enjoys her daily walks and is learning to walk on a loose leash.  Riva is very treat/food motivated and is eager to please and although she has shown little interest in playing ball, she likes to carry a soft toy around the house.     Riva may do very well in a home with a large playful male as she loves running around in the yard with her foster brother but no kitties or small dogs for this pretty girl.     Good with people of all ages, Riva would be happiest with a dedicated person or family who can and will keep her busy and entertained and remain committed to her on-going training and learning.     More
