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 Judge - Depp Trial Litter
Adoption Fee: $425
Current Age: 3 Months 18 Days (best estimate)
The Depp Trial Litter is looking for furever homes! These babies are half Aussie, half Blue Heeler, 100% cute! These kids are very sweet, active, smart, playful, and sociable.
Judge loves to play with his foster siblings, but also enjoys a little me time playing with his toys by himself. He is very playful but also loves a good nap! When Judge naps, he prefers to be on the cool hardwood floor with his belly on the ground and back legs fully stretched out, just like a little pancake! OR cuddled up right next to his foster brother, Archer. At night, he goes in his kennel to sleep and doesn’t make a peep and holds his potty all night long until foster dad is up in the morning to let him out! If he’s not quite tired when it’s time for bed, he will play quietly in his kennel until he falls asleep!
Judge is still working on potty training but never goes in the kennel and almost always makes it outside. He is working on kisses rather than nips and has gotten much better! He knows sit, down, shake, and working on stay! He LOVES to work for food and is always wanting to please! Judge is not afraid of new things and loves to go on adventures! This curious guy will enjoy being in an active family who will provide the training and structure an Aussie/Heeler puppy needs and who will also let him explore the world around him while giving him so much love and attention
Like any of our dogs, this beautiful puppy would make a great addition to an active home that will provide the love, structure, good leadership, activity and mental stimulation that his breed needs. Because of that, Judge's ideal owner will have prior GSD or other herding breed experience, and a friendly dog buddy for Judge. 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.
Judge's adoption fee is $425, 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.
