Beau is available ( Updated 09-25-2017 )

Male German Shepherd Dog about 7-9 months old. Good with kids. OK with cats. Gets along with other dogs.

Beau is an 8-month-old puppy who was rescued from a shelter. Beau had a congenital deformity in his left rear leg and it needed to be amputated, but he is doing great! This cutie is walking and building strength day by day. He also knows the command "UP" to raise his hind end.

He is very loving with people and children of all ages, has no food aggression, and is good with cats. He loves to cuddle and thinks he is a big giant lap dog.

Beau is potty & crate trained and has never gone in the house. He is still a puppy, so training in a new environment will need to continue. He has had some basic training which also will need to be continued.

Beau gets very attached to people so switching his "people" and living space can upset him. He can also fear bark at new dogs in a busy environment but, usually, if he is allowed to greet the other dogs, he calms right down. He has been good with other dogs in boarding and in foster homes.

The minimum adoption donation for adults is $300 and the adoption donation for puppies is $400 - $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
