Meet Nightwolf! Or Wolf for short, as his foster mom calls him. This happy guy was running out of time at a local shelter after being picked up as a stray. His fun-loving spirit had us at hello! We didn't have room, but his foster mom made room to get him out of danger. Wolf is about 2 years old, neutered, up to date on his vaccinations, heartworm negative (yay!), and house trained. Wolf is about 60 pounds and could use a few more, but he is full grown and will stay a nice, manageable medium size. He has done well with the resident GSD female in his foster home, and is open to meeting well-matched dogs his size and larger. Wolf expressed a little too much interest for comfort in very small dogs that he spotted at the vet's office. We suspect his prey drive may mean living with small dogs or cats is not the best fit for him ... or for the small dogs or cats! So if we could mark that one "unknown, but suspicious" that would be most accurate. He has shown some resource-guarding behaviors, trying to "protect" his food and toys from people or dogs nearby. This isn't uncommon for dogs with his history (and dogs with no history!), and his foster mom has been working with him on this while providing solid "house rules" and structure to help him understand guarding is not only not allowed, it's not necessary. As for life with kids? That will depend! Wolf has done very well with his foster mom's toddler grandson. Granted, this is one seriously GSD-savvy little boy--he's been raised around them from birth! So a savvy, experienced dog home with kids who have been taught how to behave responsibly around dogs (and who are well-supervised around dogs) is certainly possible for Wolf. He was a bit of a wild child on leash at first, but is learning the good-walkin'-dog ropes nicely now! He loves more than anything just to be with his human, whether on walks, playing ball in the yard, or just watching TV in a comfy living room with you. If you have a soft spot for the fun guys who love to play and would enjoy a couch buddy for movie nights, please apply to adopt! *** Link to all adoption requirements, policies, and informational resources: http://serendipitygsd.org/adopt *** Link to adoption FAQs, including adoption fees for adults and puppies 12 months and younger: http://serendipitygsd.org/adopt/faqs *** Link to our "Seniors Furever" program for adult dogs 7 years old and up: http://serendipitygsd.org/adopt/seniors *** Visit us on Facebook for regular updates on all of our program dogs! https://www.facebook.com/SGSDR/

Shannon comes to us from St. Louis County Animal Care & Control, where she had been surrendered by her breeder. This super-sweet senior girl quickly became a huge favorite of the shelter's volunteers and they were determined to get her to a safe space. Now Shannon is a Serendipity dog, enjoying life in her foster home, and ready to find her forever home! While in foster, Shannon has shown that she is a total love bug with humans. She wants nothing more than to be by your side, either playing outdoors with you or snoozing at your feet in the house. Getting lots of ear rubs and petting is also definitely on her agenda! And don't think this 11 year old doesn't still have the moves--she DOES! She is as spry and bouncy and ready to have fun as a dog half her age. She has stolen all of our hearts with her playful self. As for living with other pets in the home, unfortunately, this is a big "nope" for Shannon. While she was polite to the kitties she interacted with at the vet's, she has proven she is NOT cat-safe in a home environment. And while Shannon was able to walk politely on leash around other on-leash dogs away from home, she has proven that she is NOT good with other dogs in a home environment. We do see this often with dogs from less-than-reputable breeding operations, unfortunately. Shannon has decided she lived with enough other animals by now, thank-you-very-much. She dreams of having her humans all to herself, so an only-pet household is what we will find for her. If you'd love to have this darling girl curled up next to you on the couch on movie night, please apply to adopt! *** Link to all adoption requirements, policies, and informational resources: http://serendipitygsd.org/adopt *** Link to adoption FAQs, including adoption fees for adults and puppies 12 months and younger: http://serendipitygsd.org/adopt/faqs *** Link to our "Seniors Furever" program for adult dogs 7 years old and up: http://serendipitygsd.org/adopt/seniors *** Visit us on Facebook for regular updates on all of our program dogs! https://www.facebook.com/SGSDR/

Hands up if you are looking for a BEAUTIFUL, smart, energetic, sassy (did we say beautiful?) German Shepherd puppy? Chances are if you are looking for a German Shepherd you said yes to all of those things! Ms Clementine is 1 years old and looking for her furever home! Clementine is all things female German Shepherd: - Likes to be alpha - Bonds fast and hard to her person - Likes to play outside, play with toys, and play with anything else she can get her paws on - Is extremely smart - Will follow you anywhere (yes even the bathroom) - Is gorgeous (look at that face and coat!) Clementine will need an owner who is very experienced and can provide her with good structure. She can be unsure of male companions at first and can react when she is fearful, but with strong direction she will succeed! Clementine has amazing leash manners and has mastered a lot of basic commands. She would love to be in a home with a fenced in yard, and a person who enjoys being outside and spending quality time with her! *** Link to all adoption requirements, policies, and informational resources: http://serendipitygsd.org/adopt *** Link to adoption FAQs, including adoption fees for adults and puppies 12 months and younger: http://serendipitygsd.org/adopt/faqs *** Link to our "Seniors Furever" program for adult dogs 7 years old and up: http://serendipitygsd.org/adopt/seniors *** Visit us on Facebook for regular updates on all of our program dogs! https://www.facebook.com/SGSDR/

He loves as much as he plays, which in his case is a lot! If you're looking for your next adventure buddy, Kato is it. He can go all day and will keep you on your toes. Right now he is in a home with other dogs who love to play and tumble with him. He is currently in training to learn some basic manners and is an insanely smart boy. He would do best in a home with an active household with previous German Shepherd experience. As he is a rough player, we suggest a home with larger dogs and no small children. Kato promises you will never be bored with him around!
