  Please only send inquires to the email in this bio all others will not be answered. Please read the bio before sending questions - we answer all we know about the dog here. If you are looking for a dog to adopt that will love you unconditionally and keep up with you on your power walks, look no further - Charise is your girl. She is a roughly 7 year old German Shepherd mix who loves her people all most as much as she loves chasing after balls. Charise has been overlooked so far because of her age and her grey muzzle, but her age doesn't slow her down one bit and she has the energy of a much younger dog. We don't know much about her first 7 years of life because Heidi's Legacy got her after her owner passed away. Her world was turned upside down, but she's on a new path and deserves a forever home.    She's got all the basics down - house trained, crate trained, knows basic commands, UTD on all vaccinations, spayed/ microchipped , and on HW & flea prevention. She's extremely food motivated... she'll do just about anything for a treat!  Her foster family has been working hard on her leash training and she's made big improvements. . She is the sweetest dog who will always greet you with a wagging tail and will curl up next to you when you're watching TV (she's snoring next to her foster mom as she was writing this).   Charise's adoption fee is $300 - obedience training is required after adoption Obedience training is also required for all our pups.  We understand with what is going on in the world that this may be a bit delayed.  Please email us the completion certificate.

AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
