Janie has been adopted! 09-20-2017
Janie's root beer eyes will melt your heart! She is a 1-2 year old female GSD mix (maybe mixed with Labrador) who socializes well with other dogs, large and small, and is friendly toward people.
She is fostered with a 5 year old alpha male shepherd and a 1 year old over exuberant female shepherd puppy (who is always in her face) and she gets along amazingly with both. She is a low to mid energy girl who loves her chew toys and dog bed. She is ever content to sit at your feet for hours, but also loves to go for walks and still has some puppy playfulness and curiosity in her. She is housebroken, very smart, and learns quickly. She doesn't get up on furniture or beds without an invitation.
We don't know what Janie's past was, but we have her on anti-seizure medication after witnessing her have a seizure. The vet thinks she may have had an illness as a young puppy that could have resulted in seizures and some vision and hearing impairment. Since being on the medication, she has done fantastic (no seizures) and doesn't seem to have any limitations with seeing or hearing. This girl is as sweet as they come and wonderful with all ages (small children included). She will make a wonderful companion to just about anyone who wants a loyal and very lovable girl!
As great as Janie is, she can also easily clear a five foot fence, so she will need a family who understands that. A home with other dogs will help Janie settle in quicker.
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.
