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?


"Jack" is a wonderful, happy, healthy and handsome 4 year old male. We took him in as an interim foster family but we have a cat and that is a problem.

He is approximately 75 pounds and has beautiful conformation and markings. He is absolutely great with all adults and children and has never shown even the slightest aggression towards anyone.

He does have a dominant/prey/shepherding instinct with other animals and, therefore, needs a one pet home. Terrific watchdog with no excessive barking.

He is obedience trained and is currently being trained to reduce his herding instinct which causes him to be a bit persistent sometimes with other dogs. He is definitely the alpha male.

A total sweetheart and a great companion! He is fully vaccinated, neutered and comes with all the gear-beds, leashes, collars, bowls, toys, etc. We are very sad to lose him but his prey drive toward the cat in our house makes it difficult. My mission is to find him the best home possible with folks like us who have a special affinity for Shepherds.

Interested and would like further information, call me: Ron at-Day-707-571-5550 M-Th or 707-523-1559.


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.
