 1.5 Years / Female

Hi, my name is Gemma. I am a beautiful, super smart German Shepherd girl. I am house trained, and crate trained (it only took me 4 days to learn to love my create!) I am learning to walk nicely on a leash, I can sit, stay and I am learning how to come when called. I have a lot of energy and would love to be with people who run or hike. I might be a really great search and rescue dog or agility dog! I am very athletic! I am still in dog school, and am mastering skills after only a few tries. I learn very quickly with clear instruction and positive reinforcement. I don’t have much experience with other four legged creatures, but my foster mom has 3 other dogs and two cats. I am starting to learn how to tolerate the dogs, but those darn cats are too much.I have never been around small children, but I love my teenager and the adults in our house. I would do best in a home with no other dogs or cats. I have a sweet temperament, and love to spend time with my humans. Did I mention that I love to play fetch? I’m getting so good at dropping the ball when I bring it back to my human. I also love quit time and sleep all night long. I love long walks on the beach and being cozy inside on rainy days. I would really like to continue in obedience school, because it is my mission to make you happy and proud of me. I am 1.5, spayed 4/3/22, live in Auburn CA and am up to date on shots. Posted 04/20/22

 1 Year / Male

Mac is a large, very intelligent, beautiful 1 yr old male that was found abandoned on the side of the road in Woodland, CA on April 14th. He is incredibly friendly, jumping right into the car of his rescuer in fact. Mac is in the process of learning better manners; he has taken well to his kennel and leash training with a gentle leader, but more training is required. He has a sweet goofball disposition and is not aggressive to people in anyway. He is a little unaware of his size, trying to fit on laps and spaces that are a bit too small for him. He has learned some basic commands like sit and down, he loves to play fetch, and to go on car rides. He is a quiet dog not barking at doorbells or loud noises and as long as he has proper things to chew on has not been destructive. Unfortunately, he is very aggressive towards cats, and since we are home that fosters cats & kittens, he cannot stay with us and should not go to a home with cats. He has not been observed around young children but does well with older kids (8+ yrs old). He is playful and submissive to other dogs and has done well at the dog park. He loves being brushed and tolerated getting bathed very well. He has had his first round of vaccines. has been chipped and has an appointment to be fixed. Mac would flourish with an experienced dog owner who can give him the time and exercise he needs. He is in Woodland. Posted 04/29/22

Leo is a neutered GSD/Border Collie mix. I have had Leo since he was 4 months old, he was adopted in NYC and was found in TN as a stray. He is a great hiking dog, his trainer called him a 'velcro dog' as he never leaves your side. He is very obedient. He is great with kids of all ages and has been nothing but gentle with my baby. He is protective of his home. Greetings with guests has been a challenge, my solution has been placing him in another room or outside until he settles and then he can be let out to greet guests. It is just the initial entry that is too much excitement for him. He is not leash aggressive. He walks great on walks. He has had private training and listens to basic commands. He gets along with all dogs. He has been in dog daycare for years. He has had seizures in the past, they are very mild and he just 'swims' for a few minutes and is unaware of his surroundings until he comes to. When he does he gets right back up like nothing happened. He does not release bowels or anything of the sort. He was on phenobarbital for it although it doesn't seem to help much. He only gets them every 2-3 months and has never been a big issue. I am very sad to give him up but cannot devote time to him and don't want him to be neglected. I'd like to see him go to a wonderful home that can give him the exercise love and attention he needs. I am located in Fair Oaks/Sacramento.  Posted 05/3/22

Rocky is a gorgeous AKC registered purebred German Shepherd with classic Red and Black good looks. He is house and crate trained and knows all basic commands. He is leash trained and also plays off leash. Rocky is a very smart, active and affectionate pup. He has been socialized with dogs of all sizes and shapes. He is very friendly with all of them. He has not yet spent time with small children but there's no reason to think he wouldn't love them too. He has not lived with cats but has been exposed to them and was fine with them. Rocky would be happiest with a yard to play in and would be very happy to have a playmate as well. He is VERY loving and sweet. He loves to lay at your feet and will put his head in your lap for love. He has had all his shots and is eager to learn new tricks and loves to play fetch and go hiking. Rocky is an exceptional dog and would make an excellent addition to any family. Rocky needs to find a new home because the owner has a health condition and is not able to care for him. Please contact for further information or questions. Posted 05/6/22
