Caesar is a handsome 2 year old male GSD who was recently surrendered to the rescue by his owner. Since joining Serendipity, Caesar has completed a 10 day stay and train where he learned some basic obedience (sit/down/place), was trained on a treadmill (helps for those cold winter days!) and is improving his leash manners. Caesar enjoys the company of his handler and is becoming a more confident boy day by day. In his prior home Caesar lived with other dogs, but was surrendered because he and the older male stopped getting along. We're learning whether Caesar would do best as an only dog, or would live well with a female companion. Regardless, he is magnificent and will be a great addition to a GSD-savvy home. ***** Adoption Fee: $350 ***** NOTE to those viewing this profile on Petfinder.com: Visit our website for more information about our policies.

Colt is a 1 year old male GSD-mix who came to Serendipity in July. He is a lovable young dog and is both crate and house trained. Colt loves treats and is eager to learn and please his handler! Colt lives with another male GSD and seems to like the company of other dogs and possibly cats, although he has LOTS of puppy energy to burn. We are currently learning about his sociability with kids. Colt is learning basic commands (as well as no jumping) in his foster home. He's a lovely boy and will make a great addition to an active home willing to help him continue his training and burn some of that energy! ***** Adoption Fee: $350 ***** NOTE to those viewing this profile on Petfinder.com: Visit our website for more information about our policies.

  • German Shepherd Dog

Cole is a black, medium-sized male, approximately 22 months old, and is on the small side for a German shepherd. Cole is medium energy, and does well with a walk every day and working his obedience training every day. Cole was surrendered to the rescue because he was becoming protective of his owners towards strangers. He completely overcame those issues within a couple days of training and working with a calm confident handler. He is now able to act completely neutral to people approaching him, but he is not a dog that wants to be touched and hugged on by everyone and would do best in a home without small children. He will stand/ sit politely and quietly if someone does approach, but truly only wants the attention of his family. He will require an owner that is aware and comfortable calmly correcting him should he try to display that protective behavior to strangers again. Cole walks very politely on a leash. He bonds very intensely and will not entertain himself by playing in the yard or playing with toys by himself. As with most GSDs, he wants to work with his owner. He is quiet in his kennel, and does not try to escape. He goes in a kennel at night for routine, but is able to sleep outside of it without causing any problems in the house. He is also neutral to other dogs. He lives with 2 other large dogs in his foster home, and has learned to be comfortable around them and is just starting to engage in play. He is not fond of dogs being too rambunctious with him and will give a nip if they get too rough. He does fixate on small dogs so would do best in a home with no dogs or only medium to large dogs. Overall, he would be happy to be an only dog in a home, where he gets ALL the love and attention his family has to offer. Cole is completing a two-week stay-n-train with Casey Ray St. Louis Dog trainers, and is trained in English and German. He knows to stay in a designated area until told he can move, sit-stay, down-stay, come, heel and to walk on a treadmill. He loves to work and do his commands, so will need an owner that wants to apply that training every day. ***** Adoption Fee: $350 ***** NOTE to those viewing this profile on Petfinder.com: Visit our website for more information about our policies.

Zeke is our gorgeous senior boy. He is 9 years old and is a very friendly guy. He has some issues with his hips and has had perianal fistulas, so he will require medications for the rest of his life to help him live out the rest of his years comfortably, but seniors are the best ever and this guy sure is worth is. He deserves to live out his life being spoiled. Zeke is fostered in Columbia, IL. ***** Adoption Fee: $350 ***** NOTE to those viewing this profile on Petfinder.com: Visit our website for more information about our policies.

(ADOPTION PENDING) Anzo (nickname "Big Tiny") came to the rescue as a stray surrender. He's a big beauty of a boy, with a full fluffy coat and one slightly wonky ear. We think Anzo is approximately 7 years old and we're still getting to know who he is, but so far he's proven to be a thoughtful, observant kinda guy (as many GSDs are) who enjoys taking nice long walks to see all the world has to offer. He's been non-reactive to dogs, but interested, and may be a little TOO curious for cats. First impressions, he'll make someone a GREAT family pet. ***** Adoption Fee: to be determined ***** NOTE to those viewing this profile on Petfinder.com: Visit our website for more information about our policies.

(ADOPTION PENDING) Javier is an absolutely stunning 5 year old classic GSD. He was rescued from Downey Shelter in CA, a shelter that is usually full of GSDs. He stole the heart of a local shelter volunteer - he stole ours too!!!! The volunteer says he is a very smart boy who likes to be scratched behind his ears. Look at his eyes! This boy will talk to you in his own way, no doubt!! ***** Adoption Fee: $350 ***** NOTE to those viewing this profile on Petfinder.com: Visit our website for more information about our policies.

Say hello to Prudence!! Look at that sweet face! Prudence is a vivacious girl full of energy and fun! She is on the medium side (approximately 60 pounds) and is super friendly and happy to meet everyone she can! Prudence loves to hike with other dogs, and can be social, but is a dominant girl who would do best in a home as an only dog or with a male companion. No small dogs or other small furries for Prudence though.

  • Special NeedsPrefers home without dogs
Rusty is your classic GSD who is not only gorgeous but so very sweet. He is about five years old. Rusty has a medium energy level (not a lot of play drive, but loves to be with his people). Rusty needs a specific home: not a lot of people coming in and out, no children (or only mature, older children), someone who can provide Rusty with a strict routine, and someone knowledgeable of positive reinforcement. Rusty has generalized anxiety disorder. He is such a wonderful dog but in his past, which I'm sure was not so great, he learned some ineffective coping skills. Rusty does best when he knows what's coming next (hence the need for a highly structured environment). Though he is fine with other dogs, we feel Rusty would do best in a low key home with no other dogs. Rusty takes medication daily. It has been a significant help and he has made huge strides in the last two months. If you are interested in Rusty, please complete an adoption application! ***** Adoption Fee: $350 ***** NOTE to those viewing this profile on Petfinder.com: Visit our website for more information about our policies.
