Available Dogs

 

  • Astra-Von-Nicholson_562x269All of our dogs are spayed/neutered and are up-to-date on rabies, bordetella, and DHLP or equivalent vaccinations. A current rabies certificate and current vaccination records are provided to adopters.
  • Our dogs are healthy, to the best of our knowledge, unless we specify otherwise. We do our best to disclose known conditions, injuries, and emotional issues. We do not warrant the future health or behavior of any animal.
  • All of our dogs have passed a strict temperament evaluation test and further assessment during fostering. However, dogs respond differently depending on their environment and the leadership provided. We do our best to match each dog with an appropriate adopter but cannot guarantee how a dog will behave in your situation.
  • Most rescue dogs have little or no training. We try to provide house training and basic socialization but obedience training and most socializing are the responsibilities of the adopter.
  • Each dog is assigned a dog rating level that sums up the amount of experience and leadership the dog requires for an adoption to be successful.

Greater California German Shepherd Rescue Dogs

(In residence at Alpha Dog Rescue of Northern California)

Gus

Gus-101615-02_700x688

Gus is a big, strong, handsome boy. He’s a very loving, affectionate dog who will do his best to please his person but the big fellow did not get the training he needed as a youngster. He’s learning to walk nicely on a leash and other basics, and with consistent handling and training, Gus will be a devoted, wonderful family member. He gets along fine with large-breed female dogs but probably should not be with other large males or small dogs. No cats!

Lara

Lara-101615-02_649x847Lara is a three-year old 70 lb sweetheart who was dumped at a high kill shelter, where she sat until her time ran out. With a little basic training she has blossomed into a wonderful, loving dog. She gets along well with other dogs loves all the people she has met and will make a wonderful addition to a family that will make her an active member. As with all of our dogs, we recommend obedience classes — not only for training, it’s a great bonding experience for the dog and their people. Please note that Lara prefers to be an outside-only dog.

No cats!

But the Shelter People Said it was a Dog….

Although we are primarily a dog rescue, we aren’t species snobs. We occasionally rescue cats, and we’ve even been known to rescue sheep.

Mimi

mimi-532x542

Three-year-old Mimi is a sweet, cuddly longhaired calico house princess. When given the opportunity to be outside, she will always choose to stay inside, usually in a cushy spot.  Mimi prefers a nice soft bed of her own or a lap to roughing it outside.  Like all of our rescues, she is spayed and current on vaccinations.

Type—Calico cat
Sex—Female
Estimated birthdate—November 2013
Has special needs—No
