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.

    Charlie

    Male 10.3 years

    Senior

    A kind Samaritan, Tina G., found a senior dog, whom she named "Charlie, wandering the street near her workplace on Dec. 22. Tina took him to the Stockton shelter and found out he was chipped.  She tried contacting the owner and even walked to the address of record but no one was at the residence indicated on the chip and no one in the complex recognized Charlie. Being a Senior dog, all Charlie wants to do is to be a part of a family.  He is housebroken and is good with kids, cats, dogs, is trained, and well-behaved.  Tina took him to work and he became quite the favorite among her co-workers.   Charlie was moved to his new foster home in Pittsburg.  His new foster mom, Jessika, reports "Charlie is doing great. He is such a good boy." We hope someone will open their heart and provide Charlie a forever home. FOSTERED IN PITTSBURG More

    Yen (Yennefer)

    Female 3.8 years

    Watch videos of Yen here! Yennefer is a beautiful two year old girl with a huge heart. She enjoys playing with her foster brothers and LOVES squeaker toys. Yen has consistently shown a desire to chase cats so a kitty-free home would be best.  However, she is great with people of all ages and enjoys hanging out and playing with the seven year old child (under strict supervision) in her foster home. She completed obedience classes and did wonderfully.  This has helped build her confidence and enhanced her socialization skills.    Yen likes car rides, has great manners, is housebroken, crate trained and would love the company of a medium to large sized male dog as she enjoys the company of her big handsome GSD foster brothers.  FOSTERED IN LODI   More
