AGE:  5 yrs.
TEMPERAMENT:  Confused, sweet big boy


Update 8/11/10:
 
Damoo's adoption did not work out through no fault of his own and is back with MOGS and boarding in a kennel.  He seems to be improving in there, but Damoo MUST go to an experienced GSD owner.  He has uniform aggression and needs to be with someone who can handle this issue.  He is a beautiful boy that will also need to be walked everyday.  Damoo will require all members of his new home to be good leaders.  Damoo is a gorgeous hunk of dog who will make a great addition to the right home.

Damoo will break your heart.  He has been part of the same loving family since he was a puppy and he is still waiting to go home.  He’s confused about his new situation in boarding and wants to be loved so badly.  He is the victim of divorce and was well cared for by the same people for his whole life – he’s taking this change very hard.

 

He has great basic obedience and with reinforcement he will thrive in a new home, and be ready to learn more advanced commands!  His leash manners are great and he will heel on a slack lead for walks around the neighborhood unfazed by neighbor dogs barking or nearby activities.  He is a typical GSD in that he is very protective of his family and his yard. We do recommend an experienced dog owner due to his strong protective instincts and his history of occasional issues with uniforms and some men. 

 

Damoo does not have an apparent prey instinct and may do fine with cats – he couldn’t have cared less about the squirrels.  He would make a great solo dog but could also fit into the right pack.  He has a healthy amount of energy, but also has the quiet dignity of a mature shepherd.  To balance his protective nature he is happy to affectionately lay his head in your lap for a pet and a cuddle.  

 

He respected a 4’ chainlink fence with no problem.

 

Damoo is GORGEOUS and someone will be very lucky to bring him into their family.

 

Damoo's adoption fee is $300.

 

This fee covers a portion of the vet and boarding expenses for the dogs we save.  It includes the dog's spay/neuter, heartworm test, heartworm treatment if needed, rabies, distemper/parvo and bordatella vaccinations, deworming and microchip.

 

Damoo cannot be adopted in the state of Nebraska.

PLEASE READ THIS:

  1. We're picky about our adopters. 
  2. Are you sure you're up to having a GSD?  They're not for everyone.  They take a lot of time, effort, training.  They shed year round.  They're big.  They scare lots of people.  They "mouth" and herd.  They're usually strong-willed and stubborn.  You have to have references and a home visit.  If you're not willing or able to deal with any of this, please don't waste your time or ours applying.  
  3. Will the dog be an inside family pet? We do not adopt to outdoor-only homes. All dogs must be indoor dogs.
  4. Do you leave your dog outdoors when you're not home?   We do not adopt to homes that leave their animals outside when they're gone.  You must put your dogs indoors when you're gone.  A 3 yr old adopted MOGS dog died when the owners went to run errands, left her outdoors, the gate was somehow opened, and she was hit by a car.  Tragic and 100% preventable. Even privacy fences get broken into.  Gates are opened.  Thieves steal dogs. Never leave your dog outdoors when you're not home!!
  5. What's your plan for unexpected events and major changes?  New baby? Divorce?  Moving?   How you will provide for your dog if your family breaks up? 
  6. Will you make a lifetime commitment?  It's your responsibility to keep your dog safe, loved and cared for FOR LIFE.
  7.  Do you understand we expect you to keep that lifetime commitment?  It's YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to stick by your family member -- no matter what.
  8. Are you unable or unwilling to make a lifetime commitment? Do not apply.
