Minnie has been adopted! 02-08-2014
Our sweet Minnie was rescued from a local shelter. She is absolutely beautiful with her shiny black coat. Minnie is going to be a medium sized German Shepherd, probably between 50-65 pounds. She is loving and affectionate without being needy which makes her a joy to have around. We feel that she will do much better in a home with another dog as she has lots of young but workable energy to burn off.
Minnie has been introduced to a cat and ignored it at first but then started showing a little too high of a prey drive with it. The cat she met is not fond of larger dogs, only her eight pound dog. So, this is something that may be worked with to have a successful cat-dog relationship with proper training.
Minnie could use some obedience training, which we recommend for all of our adopted dogs, and she will most likely excel at that and any advanced training as well. While she has a minor issue with being handled by her collar, she is perfectly behaved on a leash.
The minimum adoption donation for adults is $375 and the adoption donation for puppies is $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 when permitted by law. 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.
