Name: Maverick

Email Address:

My wife and I have two boys, one of whom is 9 months old. Maverick has not injured the baby in any way, but has shown signs of jealousy and potential aggression (growling/barking). This is our primary concern, however Maverick is also no longer able to enjoy our yard because he has learned to jump the fence. Also, due to mine and my wife's work schedule and parenting duties with our boys, we are no longer able to give Maverick the level of attention he requires. Our number one priority is that Maverick finds a good home with adults or older children who have the time, energy, and love to give to this wonderful dog.

Maverick is a neutered 4 year old German Shepherd/ Lab mix. He loves to run, chew on sticks, and chase squirrels. He is a lover of food, a very messy water drinker, and he loves to give slobbery kisses.
He is house trained, but will occasionally have an accident due to anxiety if left alone for extended periods. He does well with other dogs, but does not know his own size and strength. He's also good with older children, but again, he does not realize how big and strong he is. He really is a lover. While he still has a lot of puppy energy left in him, he loves blankets, snuggles, and pretending to be a lap dog.
It breaks our heart to have to re-home him, but he no longer fits with our growing family. Thank you for taking the time to read our post, and if you think you would be a good fit for Maverick, we would love to hear from you!

Name: Apollo

Email Address:

Our college age son got Apollo from a friend last November when he was 6 weeks old. Shortly after, Apollo injured his leg and our son could not care for him. We moved Apollo to our home and took care of his surgery and recovery. We are retired and enjoy traveling. We have cancelled all travel while caring for his injury, recovery, therapy and training.

Apollo is an 8 months old pure bred, neutered German Shepard. His current weight is 65 lbs. He is up to date on his vaccinations. He is house and create trained, walks well on a leash, very food driven and knows several commands. He has had both private, in-home and group puppy training. Due to his injury, his left front paw turns out slightly but does not limit him in any way.
