Spirit is an 8 month old, cream color German Shepherd/Collie mix. She was hit by a car in Jacksonville on October 13th, 2017 and was rushed to the closest vet to be euthanized due to sustained injuries. The vet contacted our rescue to see if we could help. Spirit underwent an emergency surgery and is currently recovering in her medical foster home in Jacksonville.
Her is her description from the foster family:
She’s such a sweetheart and has never met a stranger. She loves everyone and will greet anyone confidently for a scratch and will even give kisses. She is incredibly smart and resourceful. She has figured out how to open lever doors, to ring a bell to go outside and even how to use that same bell to trick the other dogs to get out of bed so she can have it all to herself. She is still easily spooked by car noises (especially trucks) but is making progress on our walks and even getting better getting in and out of the car at the vet with the busy road right there. She is very energetic and loves to play with toys, people and other dogs. Can be seen bouncing on furniture and pouncing on people and cats. She is still very much a puppy and the more she heals the more energy she has. As a puppy she’s also nippy. We’ve found her intelligence and energy means she needs to be occupied but is often satisfied playing with the other dogs or her toys or bones. Definitely a Velcro dog. Is at my feet or between my legs whenever I walk somewhere and sleeps on the bed at night and does not like to share! Will annoy the other animals so she can have the bed and people to herself. Potty training is still ‘in progress’. Usually alerts but if is doing something fun and doesn’t want to stop will pee right where she is. Has been left at home outside of crate with no major issues. No longer shows interest in jumping the fence, she instead seeks safety in the house or with her pack but not sure I would trust her if she was left outside for very long. She wants to be with her people and if she thinks jumping the fence will achieve that goal, I don’t doubt she’d do it. She would do best in a home with at least one other dog to play with. Likely a larger dog because she plays rough. Views cats as toys in a game of Whack a Mole. She will pounce on them for fun but doesn’t exhibit high enough drive or interest in them to be a concern for their safety but will need continued training. No issues with kids but because is a puppy that likes to jump and nip would need training until she outgrows those habits.
Spirit's adoption fee is $250.


 

Kayah is a young (about 1 year old) black and tan German Shepherd who gave birth to her 5 puppies on the streets of Quitman County, GA and was brought to the shelter there just hours after all the puppies were born. She was traumatized with a catch pole and was hiding in the corner of her shelter kennel, avoiding contact with anyone.
Once transported to our rescue, she started taking care of her puppies but she is very reserved when it comes to people. She is done with the nursing perid now and once spayed, will be available for adoption. Her adoption fee is $250.

Sam is a 3.5 year old German Shepherd/Belgian Malinois mix. He is a large boy and because of his size, can be intimidating when you first meet him but he is very friendly and affectionate. Sam has been through hell over the last 6 months, he has been tossed around between different homes and family members due to a divorce in the family, at one point he was found in a ditch barely alive and then returned to our rescue. He is currently in a foster home in Ormond Beach, which he shares with two female German Shepherds and a male German Shepherd. He is also fine with small dogs but has not been cat tested. Sam does ok around farm animals as well, including chickens and horses. He does not like to be crated when left alone, but once he gets his daily exercise, he can be left outside of the crate with no problems. Because of multiple households that he has been in in a short period of time, we will be super specific about the next family that adopts him. It has to be a GUARANTEED forever home, someone who is familiar with the Belgian Malinois breed and someone who will not toss him out because they lost a job or because they are moving or because they are getting a divorce. No excuses!!!! He deserves better. A perfect home for him would be one with an oversized yard or a large fenced in property, a swimming pool he can burn his energy in as he loves to swim and a family who works less than 8 hours a day to spend time with him to compensate for all the misfortunes in his life.
Sam's adoption fee is $250.

 

 

Stoian is a 7 week old mix who was found on a runway of a small airport in Georgia prior to arriving to our rescue. He is a sweet and affectionate buy, currently at 9 lbs and when fully grown, he is expected to be around 50 lbs.
Stoian is in the process of crate training and potty training in his foster home, which he shares with another adult female dog. Because of his young age, he is available on a foster to adopt basis meaning that the family chosen to give him a forever home, will need to foster him until he is completely vetted and neutered, before we can finalize his adoption. His adoption fee is $200.
