When you inquire about a dog, the following questions might be helpful:

1. Why are you giving up your dog?

2. Has the dog ever bitten, nipped or 'gone after' anyone?

3. Does it have any health problems? Who is your vet? May I contact him/her?

4. Where did you get the dog? Does it have papers?

5. Does your dog have any training? Is it housebroken? crate trained?

6. Is the dog left alone for long periods? What does it do? Bark? Dig? Chew? Is it an inside or outside dog? Where does it sleep?

7. How does the dog behave with adults, children? Other dogs? Cats?

8. Is your dog mellow? calm? energetic? protective? affectionate?


Shadow is a wonderful family dog who loves people, likes to run and fetch and has a strong herding instinct (especially with our goats!). She is a purebred sheperd, spayed and up to date on all vaccinations, worm and flea medications. She has not had much experience with other dogs and we have not spent much time training her. When she gets out of our property, she loves to run and explore but does not come when called.

Our son has autism and had always wanted a dog. We got Shadow in the hope that they would bond and that my son would benefit from having a dog to love and care for. Unfortunately, even though she is a wonderful, loving pet, having a dog turned out to be more stressful than comforting to our son, and we have sadly decided to put her up for adoption.

We want her to go to a great home, preferably with some property and a family able to spend time with her.


Important Note About Dog Descriptions

Please remember that the descriptions of dogs (of Dogs Available) have been written by GSRNC volunteers and are usually based only upon our observation of the dog since the time it was rescued. While we try to provide dog descriptions that are fair and accurate, the nature of our work involves contact with dogs whose background and history are unknown to us. GSRNC cannot warrant or guarantee any dog's future behavior. For example, if we say that a rescue dog gets along with children, cats, or other dogs, this statement is usually based upon the fact that one of our volunteers has observed the dog interacting with his or her own children or pets. While this information may be helpful, we cannot be certain of how a dog will do with the children or pets in your home. If you are considering adopting, we encourage you to come to one of our Adoption Days and meet our rescue dogs. Ultimately, only you can decide whether one of our dogs is right for you.
