Jude has been adopted! 01-29-2020
Jude is a big, strong, lovable GSD/Akita mix we rescued from a high-kill shelter. He's incredibly strong, incredibly cuddly when he trusts you, and working on his obedience game now. He didn't appear to have been socialized much prior to his rescue and was fearful around strangers and other dogs. Now that he's been working with volunteers, he's coming out of his shell and proving to be a big softy who loves to cuddle and get pets. He knows his basic commands and is very (very!) food motivated, so he's fun to train. While he doesn't understand (yet) how to play with other dogs, he is not reactive to them (while on leash) and a great hiking partner.
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.
