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 Reese

  • Status: Available for Adoption (adoption info)
  • Adoption Fee: $375
  • Species: Dog
  • Current Age: 8 Months (best estimate)
Reese is a cute and snuggly little cattle dog mixed puppy. Pert and his litter mate were born outside to a Cattle Dog mom. He and his littermate Pert were trapped and brought into rescue. His first weeks in rescue he was understandably very shy around people.  However, every day he gains a little bit more confidence. He now likes to be cuddled, sleeps on his foster mom's lap, and runs up to new people to see what they're doing! Reese is potty-trained and crate-trained. He loves his exercise pen with his soft bed and all of his toys around him (which he uses as a crate). He is very gentle, and enjoys being with people once he warms up to them. So far, he is a fairly low energy dog. His adorable little brown eyes are surmounted by two funny blonde eyebrows! He will do best in a home with a another dog because he copies what other dogs do and that's how he lives best. We would consider adopting Reese and Pert together to the right home. 

Reese's adoption fee is $375, all of which goes back into offsetting 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.
