Referral -Tara

German Shepherd Dog / Golden Retriever

Medium • Senior • Female

Spayed/Neutered • Up-to-date with routine shots • Prefers a home without: young children

This spunky senior is Tara, and she is incredible!! She is a 10 year old German Shepherd mix, and is very healthy and vibrant. Tara loves playing fetch, and will even occupy herself by throwing her toy around and catching it! She loves to get affection from her humans. She doesn’t mind cats and likes to play with other dogs in her household. She is still very active for her age and is always up for a walk or a hike, and would make a great adventure buddy for someone. Tara can be a little timid when first meeting people, but is easily won over by treats and a gentle approach. She can be a little protective of her toys, so she would prefer a home without young kids. She can be a little leash reactive and cautious of people and other dogs she meets on walks but is happy to continue on her walk after the distraction. Tara is very food motivated and very smart! She knows a lot of commands and hanging out with her people and playing is a perfect day for her. Tara is such an amazing dog, and we know that perfect forever home and human is out there for her. Let’s spread the word to find this old dog some new digs!!! GSROR is helping Tara find her forever family. If you are interested in knowing more about her please contact

If you are interested in adopting a dog that is posted as a Referral please read the bio for instructions. If we are helping re-home the dog you must submit an application and someone from the rescue will be in touch with you. If the owners name and email address is in the bio then please contact them directly.

If this will be your first German Shepherd Dog then please click on this link before filling out an application.

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.
