Adoption Fee: $375
Odin…..Viking god of war and of the dead. He ruled over Valhalla – “the hall of the slain”. All Vikings who died in battle belonged to him. They were collected by his female handmaidens, the valkyries. Sounds like a Giant name to live up to for such a sweet and lovely Young Shepherd boy but he tells us he promises to try.
Our Odin is around 12 months old and full of himself indeed. He is a perfect example of a young headstrong Adolescent GSD, handsome, stunning really and quite awe inspiring when you see him in person. He is eager to please his person, but also eager to do what he wants. Thankfully he is sweeter than most, has no stranger danger and LOVES all other dogs. Odin is working on his manners using positive reinforcement methods which much be continued by his new family. He would prefer a home with large dog experience and either a fairly active outdoors loving owner or a fenced yard with a playmate. Odin is good with tiny humans but has a tigger like joy that may be overwhelming to babies and toddlers, and the caretakers who would need to constantly manage them. He has not yet been cat tested. Odin is current on vaccines, and has now been neutered. He is being fostered in Palmyra VA.
At the time you are seeing this post, Odin is still available for adoption. But please know that we may be working on multiple applications already, and any one of them could be approved at any time. Please READ THIS ENTIRE DESCRIPTION and complete an adoption application, if you are interested in any of our animals. Application at www.greendogsunleashed.org If you send an inquiry to ask if the dog is still available, or just tell us you are interested, your inquiry will not be answered. FILL OUT AN APPLICATION. We can do NOTHING without that. No, we cannot tell you if he would be a match for your family without seeing an application. PLEASE KEEP READING for info.
*/*/* PLEASE NOTE: The first communication you will receive after completing an application will be an email response, which will have instructions on how to proceed. Please check your inbox AND spam folders for the next 48 hours, for this email. We will not begin processing an application without the information requested in that email. */*/*
We are happy to consider applicants from out of state on most dogs. Please read the description to see if this dog is an exception. If the applicant is approved to adopt, they MUST be willing to come to our location in Troy, VA, for a meet and greet. If all parties agree that the pup and family are a good fit, they would take the pup home at that time.
For more information about our mission and for an APPLICATION for adoption, please go to www.greendogsunleashed.com.
GDU does ask a minimum adoption fee of $375.00. This does not even come close to covering all expenses created by animals while in rescue. We are funded solely by the angels and volunteers willing to donate time and finances. This minimum fee includes DAPP, rabies if age appropriate,, heartworm test and preventative, if age appropriate, and flea and tick treatment, as well as neutering or spaying, if the animal is medically sound to undergo surgery. In an attempt to avoid tummy upset from a sudden change of food, the foster family may include a small, transitional bag of the food the dog/puppy has been eating. And if the dog/puppy has grown attached to a special item (like a toy or blanket), they may send that along, as well.
*/*/* Young puppies will receive age-appropriate vaccines, and will be spayed/neutered prior to adoption. Adopters may be required to provide additional puppy boosters and at 16 weeks of age, a rabies vaccine. Future annual vaccines, testing and monthly heartworm preventative are REQUIRED, and will be the financial responsibility of the adopter.
