My Rescue
Login to Remember your Favorite Animals and Breeds!

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.

About Remi

  • Status: Adopted!
  • Adoption Fee: $400
  • Species: Dog
  • Current Size: 61 Pounds
  • Current Age: 3 Years (best estimate)
Remi is a very sweet loving young girl. She is very smart, curious, and food-motivated. She knows her basic commands, as well as "shake", "other paw", and is ready to learn new ones! She does well on a leash, but loud unexpected noises can startle her. She gets along well with other dogs, loves to play, and would do best with another active sibling to show her the ropes. She would like to play with the cats, but doesn’t understand why they run away from her, which also means its time to chase them through the house. There isn’t a toy that she hasn’t enjoyed playing with. She sleeps great in her kennel once she calms herself. She does suffer from abandonment issues and will want to be with her humans as much as possible. Remi would do best with pet parents who are home a lot, and where she would normally not need to be alone more than 4 hours at a time. Remi is potty-trained and knows to ring the bells to go outside. She would do well in an active household with frequent walks, outings, training, and plenty of attention for her very active puppy self. If there are children, she would do best with older children, as in typical Shepherd puppy fashion, everything including feet and arms are chew toys! She is a very smart, affectionate, active girl, who will be the delight of any GSD lover.

Like any of our dogs, this gorgeous girl would make a great addition to an active home that will provide the love, structure, good leadership, activity and mental stimulation that this breed needs. Because of that, Remi's ideal owner will have prior GSD or other herding 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.

Remi's adoption fee is $400, all of which goes back into offseting 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.
