German Shepherd Dog - Dillon - Large - Young - Male - Dog
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. DILLON is a sweet, energetic, silly, shy pup-ster! He's what is called a soft-eared, or floppy-eared, German Shepherd and is likely a high mix. He's a gorgeous bi-color boy with one heck of a sweet personality to match. He was in a high kill city pound where he was absolutely terrified... but he's come around nicely. He's still shy of some people, especially men and small kids. It's clear that a man and probably small children at some point beat him. But he's gotten much better on all those fronts as well, and all he needs is time, patience and love to continue getting past it. He's doing extremely well and fast becoming the goofy pup-ster he really is. And Dillon is still definitely a youngster - he loves to play, be loved on, and do all the things that youngsters love to do! He hasn't had an accident since the first day or two, though like many abused dogs he will occasionally piddle some when excited. The first day in the foster home he literally belly-crawled to his foster mom ... and it broke her heart. He hadn't known love til now! But he's gotten used to it and is lapping it up -- he's a love bug and a 'velcro dog!' Dillon, or 'Dilley', is a wonderful youngster who just needs time, patience and love as he finishes his journey past the cruelty and abuse he knew as a tiny puppy. Although shy, he is a true German Shepherd - he's protective of his home, has a great bark, and like a typical youngster tries to 'strut his stuff' if allowed to get away with it! He requires all the training and leadership that all German Shepherds require. He loves car rides and outings, though he'll stick close to you to make sure you're not going to leave him somewhere! Dillon may refuse to go to certain men because they remind him of whoever was cruel to him, but he's getting MUCH better about that. Dilley will be a lap dog if you let him: he's a true cuddlebug and can't get enough lovin'! He does very well with the other dogs in his foster home (GSD and shitzu). He is playful and has a strong ball drive. Dillon needs a home with older children only - 13 and up. DOGS: yes. Just wants to play CATS: unknown. Would have to be tested KIDS: older kids 13 and up recommended IDEAL HOME: an active home with at least one other dog and a family who will continue to socialize him and show him the world outside his home! Dilley is a cuddlebug who's in the final stages of forgetting his abusive past! IF you're looking for an active youngster who's a lovebug and will give him the training, leadership, love & patience he needs, DILLEY will reward you with lifetime of love, fun & loyalty!

You must put your dog indoors (NOT out in the yard) when you're not home - We've had dogs stolen because they were left outdoors when the owners weren't home! Privacy fences have been broken into, gates have been opened, thieves have stolen dogs. One adopted MoGS dog died after the owners left to run errands, left her outdoors, someone opened the gate, and she was hit by a car. NEVER leave your dog outdoors when you're not home!! You are required to make a lifetime commitment to the care, love and safety of your adopted dog. If you're unable or unwilling to make a lifetime commitment, please do not apply for a dog. Plan for unexpected events and major changes, such as babies, divorce or moving. How you will provide for your dog if your family breaks up? If you move? If you have a child? When you adopt a MoGS dog, you are making a lifetime commitment. We expect you to keep it. We spend huge amounts of time, effort and our own money to save
