About Blitzen

Blitzen has a pending adoption! Blitzen is so much fun! He is very active and athletic, and loves to chase balls. At just 1 and 1/2 years old, he is a goofy young boy with a very loving personality. He loves to give kisses! His foster family has four dogs, and Blitzen joined right in and found his place in the pack. He tends to want to take charge, and compete with the other dogs for food, toys, and attention from his people. The older dogs said, "No way, youngster!" and he accepted their leadership. His foster dad said when he is all grown up, he will definitely be an alpha dog. He is wonderful with people, and adores children. Blitzen is a super smart boy who learns quickly and has very good house manners and yard manners. He is not destructive, and doesn't dig or tear up property. Blitzen is house trained, crate trained, rides well in the car, and walks well on a leash. He is a beautiful, healthy young boy who is ready for his forever home.

Sweeter than honey. Playful as a puppy. Little Luna Rosa came from a loving family who was forced to surrender her to the good folks at the GHGSDR because their new child was dangerously allergic to dogs. It was an extremely difficult and heartbreaking decision for her former family, but it means that this beautiful girl is now available for another wonderful family to love. It’s easy to see that this 5-year-old little lady still has a lot of love to give! In the time we’ve had her as a foster, Luna Rosa has been affectionate, happy and very loyal – following us everywhere around the house. She comes when called – tail-a-waggin’ – and has amazing house manners, although she’s still learning to tackle the stairs. She’s kennel-trained, housebroken and loves to go for walks (although she needs a little more leash work). She didn’t get a chance to experience different places as a puppy – like noisy patio bars or bark parks – so she’s still a little anxious in new environments. She’s great with kids, plays every day with our own GSD, and has tried to play with our little 25 lb. 10-year-old dog, (although he’d rather nap all day). She is so gentle with our small dog that we suspect she might also be good with cats, but we haven't had the opportunity to test this out. She has learned how to sit, lay down and shake like a pro. She lives for the petz and treatz! Luna Rosa is an ideal dog for anyone that wants the protectiveness of a German Shepherd Dog, coupled with the mellowness of an adult, well mannered GSD. show less

I am Trace’s foster mom, and I dearly love this big, beautiful boy! Trace is initially a little hesitant, and doesn't give his heart easily. He scoped things out at first, to see if I would be kind to him, and if he could trust me. But oh my goodness! When Trace falls, he falls HARD. He is a very tender and sensitive soul, and he gives his heart completely. Now he is committed to watching over me, and protecting me. He is never happiest than when he is right beside me. Trace is very intelligent, and really wants to please. He knows a few basic commands, and will come when he is called. He is house broken and crate trained. He is calm and well behaved in the house. He has never bothered anything of mine. He is a good watch dog, but he is not a problem barker. He will definitely bark to alert me if he hears something, but after I reassure him that everything is all right, he settles back down. He rides well in the car and walks well on a leash. He will sleep quietly all night on a comfortable dog bed. If I decide to sleep in, Trace will just snooze along with me, without disturbing anyone. He is super affectionate, and loves a good ear scratch and snuggle. There is only one behavior that a potential adopter needs to consider. Trace has really struggled with learning how to play with other dogs. He seems to have missed out on socializing with other dogs in his formative puppy years. I don't think he has ever lived in a house with another dog, and he has had a hard time figuring out how to do that. I have been working with him on appropriate interactions with other dogs. He is a very smart boy, and he is doing much better. He likes other dogs, and he wants to be friends, but sharing a home and a person with another dog can be confusing and difficult for Trace. For an adopter with no other pets, Trace will be an easy and delightful dog to add to your household. show less
