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?


I am moving to Costa Rica for 7-weeks and I am looking for a foster home for KOBE!
My trip is from November 16, 2017 – January 6, 2018. Kobe will be 8 years old at that time.

Kobe is a loving, sweet, gentle, playful boy! I have had him since he was a pup. He is a total inside dog and sleeps on the rug at the foot of my bed. I got him from a breeder in Santa Cruz Mountains who breeds GSDs for law enforcement agencies in December 2009. Through many ups and downs over the last 8 years, Kobe has brought me nothing but joy and happiness!

I’d like to take him with me but I think it would be too much on him physically. Unless I can find a good home for him, I will have to board him while I’m travelling abroad. I will supply the dog food and any costs for his care. I am also willing to pay reasonable costs for room and board to a loving family for Kobe.

While Kobe loves people, and he is really good with small children, he is dog/animal aggressive. Thus far training has not been able to fix this problem; unfortunately it is etched in his fabric. Aside from this one little character flaw, Kobe would be an absolute delightful houseguest.

If you are interested in fostering Kobe, please contact me to set up a meet and greet.


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.
