Description:
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.German Shepherd dogs, as well as the other herding breeds that we have in rescue, are highly active, energetic, working breeds. They require considerable vetting, exercise, socialization, training, leadership and mental stimuli in order to be well-adjusted, well-balanced, and well-mannered dogs. Even if you exercise and play with your dog daily in your fenced yard, you MUST still take your dog out on daily walks and outings in order to work on his/her leash skills, manners, and social skills. These breeds make great additions to active families who will pamper them, but who will also work with them, as they are smart dogs who need leadership, structure, plenty of activity and mental stimulation. If you are new to German Shepherds (and other herding breeds), please research the breed to make sure this is the dog for you. We ask that you consider the time and financial commitment that your German Shepherd (or other herding breed) dog will require before applying for one. Please review the section on our website (www.heartlandgsrescue.org) Is a HUGS Dog Right for You? for additional information.Xander is a gorgeous, very sweet, 7 and half year-old boy. Xander has the softest, plush coat. He is a very sweet, affectionate boy. Due to his previous lack of socialization, Xander can be wary of people who approach him to invade his space. He has however gotten better, and he is great with people, as long as he gets to approach them and sniff them first. Xander is a little nervous around small children, but fabulous around teenagers and adults. He is sweet, treat motivated, eager to learn, loving and he takes treats gently. In typical GSD fashion, he likes to show affection on his own terms! He is a very sweet, eager to please boy, and a typical GSD who will do wonderful with a knowledgeable owner. Xander is well-behaved, fairly calm for a GSD. He loves to go for car rides, walks, doggy events, and anywhere that dogs are allowed. He loves to play fetch and be petted. This smart, affectionate boy will be the delight of a very lucky German Shepherd lover.Xanders adoption fee is $225, all of which goes back into offseting our high-cost vetting expenses and rescuing more dogs. Adoption fees include spay/neuter, current on age-appropriate vaccinations, fecal, deworming, flea/tick and heartworm preventative, heartworm tested if old enough (treated if positive), and microchipped.

Like any of our dogs, Xander would make a great addition to an active home that will provide the love, structure, good leadership, activity and mental stimulation that his breed needs. Because of that, Xanders ideal owner will have prior GSD or other herding breed experience. Even if you exercise and play with your dog daily in your fenced yard, please remember that you MUST still take your dog out on daily walks and outings, in order to provide sufficient stimulation, ward off boredom, and work on leash skills, and manners.Please review the information in the About Us, Important Considerations and Adopt sections on our website menu, as it contains useful information about the breed, adoption fees, the adoption process and our requirements, and how meeting the dogs works. 12/12/23 8:16 PM
