Noel Noel
Noel is a goofy, beautiful, carefree, energetic and very loving girl who just wants to have fun. She loves playing with the other dogs, going on walks, or just generally doing whatever her foster family is doing. She's going to make someone a fantastic buddy and companion. BACKSTORYNoel came to MOGS after she was seized by animal control for cruelty. She was starved, dehydrated and left outside with no shelter. She is currently is a foster home. TEMPERAMENT / BEHAVIOR Noel is amazing. She was seized for extreme cruelty but despite her suffering she still loves people. She's a sweet little girl who is very soft, friendly and goofy. She wants to greet everyone and will be very vocal about it. She loves being in the same room with her humans and will follow everywhere. She acts as a tripping hazard since she picks the least out of the way spot to lay down, especially in the kitchen. She does tend to sniff the counter and floor for yummies but has never jumped up to grab anything. Will try her best to reach into a high chair to get leftovers but will leave it if told to. Her foster family doesn't leave things towards the edge of counters so she is not given the opportunity to steal anything. She does like to chew on stuffed animals and does not know the difference between her toys and baby's toys so her foster family does their best to just keep non-dog toys off the floor. Like most GSDs Noel is a super shedder, her fur is very thick. TRAININGShe's learning basic manners and doing very well. She is food driven which will help with her training. The first new behavior she had to practice was waiting at baby gates or backyard fences. She has climbed a fence to follow her person on the other side. With a 6 ft fence she will be fine, with a somewhat lower fence, she will need complete supervision in the backyard to avoid escaping. She sometimes jumps baby gates to be closer to her people. She is pretty good at listening and has learned the sit command. She is house more about Noel

Xander Xander
XANDER is an affectionate 8-9 year old high Belgian Terv mix who needs a quiet home with an experienced trainer.    BACKGROUND: Dumped in a shelter by his family at 4 yrs old. They cited “behavior” issues but didn’t say what those were. Owners appeared to have multiple dogs and needed to get rid of at least one. Owners had not socialized him outside the home at all.   TEMPERAMENT / BEHAVIOR: Needs and adores his daily walks – he’s a scent dog and will stop at every scent if allowed. Overly excited in first part of his walk but calms down and largely stops pulling after that. Needs that daily outlet but walks needn’t be long (around 20 minutes satisfies him tho he enjoys longer. Gets very excited when you come home, jumps and barks and has to be reminded every time sit and be quiet. Hates the crate and is usually in it only as a time-out while foster is home. Xander is a unique dog! He’s got two distinct sides: a loving, goofy boy AND an aggressive reactor to strange people and dogs.    The Goofy side:  Crate trained House trained Dream house manners, calm and well behaved Doesn’t play with toys or other dogs A foodie – always ready to eat and will steal food left out Loves to lay in your lap if allowed Moderate prey drive – responds well to “leave it” command on walks when seeing small critters, will chase in the yard but breaks off pretty easily Loving to “his” person Downright pushy about getting head rubs, tummy rubs, and just generally being close to and touched by you Has “jack-in-the-box” energy – will go from sound sleep to jumping around in a split second. The Reactive side: On leash will react to strange people and dogs. Has gotten better about leaving people alone but still very reactive to other dogs. When off-leash will allow strangers to handle him but will go after other dogs Stubborn more about Xander
