BUDDY is truly a "lucky dog."  He came from a high kill shelter in a bad area.  He was scared out of his mind and is now in a great foster home, learning the ropes.

BUDDY is well behaved in a crate and has not had any accidents in the crate.  He is quiet and does not make a fuss while in his crate.  He also appears to have good house manners -- he likes to explore but is not destructive.

BUDDY loves people and will sit and watch you work in the yard.  He seems content just to part of your human family, and to be safe and loved.

He also loves to play fetch with his ball. He even brings it back and waits for you to throw it again.  Oddly, he buries his ball when he's finished playing with it -- which he also does with all his doggie treats.  It's heartbreaking -- as if he's afraid he'll never get another ball or treat. BUDDY has obviously not had a kind life to date. 

BUDDY seems to do well with other dogs, though he's still adjusting to the other large dogs in the foster home.  The alpha male gave BUDDY when Buddy walked up to him through the fence -- and the alpha male made it clear that he may be an old guy but is still in charge. Poor BUDDY just looked at the old boy, then slowly turned and walked away.  He is still being introduced to the other younger dogs in the household.  We have not seen BUDDY around kids or cats yet.

If you're looking for a loving, handsome GSD who will be grateful for a home, love and family --




This fee covers only part of the vet and boarding expenses for the dogs we save.  At minimum it includes spay/neuter, heartworm test, heartworm treatment if needed, rabies shot, distemper/parvo shot, bordatella shot, deworming, microchip, and heartworm preventive and flea preventive while in our program.

TO APPLY:  Click on "FORMS" on the menu to the left and submit an Adoption Application.

Special Needs: None


  1. We're picky about our adopters! 
  2. GSDs are 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. All dogs must be inside family pets. We do not adopt to outdoor only homes.
  4. When you're not home, you must put your dog indoors (NOT in the yard).  One adopted MoGS dog died after the owners went to run errands, left her outdoors, someone opened the gate, and she was hit by a car.  Privacy fences get broken into, gates are opened, thieves steal dogs. NEVER leave your dog outdoors when you're not home!!
  5. You must make a lifetime commitment.  It's your responsibility to keep your dog safe, loved and cared for FOR LIFE. 
  6. Are you unable or unwilling to make a lifetime commitment? Do not apply.
  7. 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? 
  8. You're making a lifetime commitment to a MOGS Dog.   We expect you to keep it!  It's YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to stick by your family member -- no matter what.
