Hi there, my official name is Roma but my foster Mom calls me Rhoda. I’m about 1 year old and I’m looking for a family to spend the rest of my life with.
I’m an energetic gal. Smart and sassy I say. I’m crate-trained but my foster parents let me sleep outside the crate now since I’m so good. But they think in a new environment I should be crated until I feel comfortable. I use a doggie door (easy peasy to learn) so I’m house-trained…but if you don’t have a doggie door then you should watch me closely until I figure out how to let you know I need to go outside.
I’m learning lots of new things like “sit, down, off and no” commands (easy peasy) and I’m still working on leash walking (not so easy for a 1 year old GSP). I would like a family that will continue teaching me new things since I’m so smart (and humble). I’m still a young GSP so if you don’t pay attention to me and I’m bored I may eat a shoe. My Foster Mom didn’t like that too much so she tries to keep me busy now. To make up for that little flaw I do like baths and nail clippings (I like to be pretty and pampered).
I play well with others, love my toys, love to snuggle with other dogs and everybody is my best friend!!! I do love other dogs. A lot. I came into rescue with my sister Reba so I’m used to having another dog around. In fact I like to sleep with my two foster canine siblings on my bed. They are great cuddlers. I’ve been told I should not live with a cat. “No cats” they say! I think I know why…oops. But it was fun LOL!
I would like a home that appreciates my desire to please humans and wants to be with me as much as I want to be with them. I’d also like a canine sibling to play with and snuggle with when our humans are away (hopefully not gone for long though – I hate being apart from my humans). I am very submissive with other dogs and would never be aggressive with anyone…it’s just not in my nature. I like small humans too but I’ve been told taller humans are better (4+) since I get a bit exhuberant and may accidentally knock small ones down.
I’m young so I would like a fenced yard to run and run and play and play in. I do calm down when in the house ‘cause I know that when I’m inside it’s quiet time and I can catch up on my napping. I do like to follow my humans to see what they’re doing and if I can help. But once I determine it’s nothing exciting I’ll lay down and sleep.
So to sum it up, I’m a really nice, small-ish girl (46 lbs) looking for someone to take me on long walks, cuddle and love me for the rest of my life. If you think you’re the one please complete an adoption application (if you haven’t already) and email my foster parents Claudine and Jim.
And I’m spayed, fully vetted, temperament tested and know basic commands so my adoption fee is $375.
Good Day, my name is Ranger and I am in search of my forever home.
I’m a little over a year old and, SQUIRREL, I’m very smart and, SQUIRREL, well I’m easily distracted. As I get older I’m getting better at that but it’s just in my nature.
When I came to rescue I had some swollen joints, a little stomach issue, chewed up ears, some hairless spots and I was super underweight, but it didn’t keep me from hunting those birds I saw out the back window during my transport. My former owner said I was not a hunter, but I think it’s all in how you define hunting. I’m perfectly happy hunting my backyard and keeping birds, squirrels and any other small animal out of my space (well for a little while…they can come back so I can chase them all over again).
I need a family that will continue to work with me, teach me new tricks, and spend a lot of time with me so I don’t get bored and into trouble. I’m house-trained and crate-trained but I still sometimes mess my crate if I’m left in there too long. Maybe my new home will be secure enough for me to have access to a potty area during the day when I need it – that would be really cool. I like to chew so if you have toys and good tough things for me to chew that’s better than the things my foster mom said were bad like my crate mattress.
I know my basic commands like “sit” and “come” and “heel” but if there’s a small furry creature in sight then all bets are off if I listen to you. I need someone who would like to teach me new things and not get mad at me when my true nature kicks in (and my youth). If you use food or a clicker with me I like that and will learn faster. I am very respectful of other dogs and would love a canine sibling to play with. I get along with dogs because I’m really good at listening to other dog's signals for space, even the VERY tiny signals. I love all humans but I’m a bit exuberant so perhaps no really small ones so they don’t accidentally get knocked down.
I’m a typical GSP in that I am immediately friendly, and I just love affection. I have loads of energy, and I tend to pull hard on the leash, but I’m working on that. I’m not a jumper and I’m also respectful of furniture.
So to recap, I need a home with a fenced yard to play and hunt squirrels in (preferably with lots of trees and squirrels). My family should be very attentive and want to play with me and teach me new things. And finally, I want a family that will cuddle with me in the evenings and love me for the rest of my life. If you are interested in meeting me, please complete an adoption application (if you haven’t already) and email my foster Mom Nikki.
