German Shepherd Dog

Champ is a LongCoat gsd, somewhere between 6-8 years old and this baby has had a tough life before coming to us. Champ lost his first home only to be given to a person who put him on a very heavy chain, tied to a pole way in the back. If they remembered he was out there they gave him food and water but by the condition he was in when we got him, that was not very often. Due to his life the previous 2 years he did have a few issues that with love and care have been healed. Champ lacked good nutrition to give him a healthy coat, has some arthritis, and drug his feet when walking due to a loss of muscle mass. Since arriving in foster, he has now developed muscle mass, runs around the farm and is showing off his beautiful new shiny coat. Despite his hardships, Champs blood work shows his organs are 100% which is fantastic news. Champ has some hearing loss but he can hear loud noises and feel vibrations, so it is easy to get his attention if he is not right by your side, which is his favorite place to be. He is being fostered with a female gsd who respects him but will need a home with no cats or small dogs and no children. Champ walks like a pro on leash, has spurts of energy to run and bounce around being so happy to be free again. He also loves car rides, but may need a little help getting in if your vehicle sits high off the ground. He is truly a lovely dog just waiting to shower you with love and kisses.

The brief descriptions we have posted about our dogs are based on our observations and interactions with them since coming to our rescue. We will take our dogs out into public areas to watch their behaviors around strangers and other pets while walking them. We also place them in a daycare facility to ensure that they are sociable with other dogs and if not, which dogs they do not perform well around, such as small dogs or another large breed. When available, we place our dogs in a foster home to observe their house manners and help them to trust people again. If we observe bad behaviors we work with them to correct behaviors such as jumping on furniture or paws on the counters. There will be times that we will not be able to provide the answers to some of your questions – like are they good with children or cats – especially rescued dogs found as strays with little or no background. Even though we spend as much time as possible interacting with all our dogs, and they behave a certain way when with us, German Shepherd Rescue of the Rockies cannot guarantee their future behavior with their new families.
