Brandi is a courtesy post for our friends at Bay Area German Shepherd Rescue.  Here is a link to her information on their website: https://www.bayareagsr.org/available-dogs/1488-brandi-2021.  If you're interested in her but still have some questions, please contact them directly at info@bayareagsr.org. Or better yet, submit an application through the link at https://www.bayareagsr.org/adopt/3-adoption-application  Thank you! Hi! I’m Brandi! I’m a 6 year old, affectionate and friendly GSD and I weigh about 85 pounds. My new friends sprung me from the shelter and I’m learning what it’s like to live with my fosters in a home. I used to guard my food, water and toys, but my foster family has been working with me on that and I’m starting to understand that there is enough to go around and guarding is not necessary. I’m learning to give things up without a fuss. I walk pretty well on leash and do not react to other dogs when we’re out and about. I also may be cat workable as I ignore the cat at my foster home. I get along with other dogs but until I can reliably not guard anything, it may be best if I don’t live with other dogs. If you are working from home, I would love to just relax or sleep beside you while you work. I have lovely house manners too. I also will willinging tag along if you take me out for errands.  I’m learning to play with toys and I especially love the squeaky ones. I would love to live in a home with a yard that has fresh grass for me to roll around in. I really love that! My friends at BAGSR say that I am a lovely, affectionate companion. If you are looking for a hang-out pal, I just may be your girl.  I’ll be waiting with my foster family in Novato. Hope to meet you! ##985216## show less

Our recent arrival Lucky is recovering well from his neuter surgery after a bumpy start where he had significant swelling and some discomfort. Tipping the scales at 90 pounds, he needs to put on some weight under that stunning plush coat. He's getting good food, supplements to help with dander and can't wait to be cleared for a bath to shed the old life.  Lucky loves to be brushed, get head, and ear rubs which means the meds to treat his ear infections are working. He's not fond of cats, intrigued way too much by squirrels on his walks as most shepherds. He meets dogs easily but will back off if they are pushy, totally into his people over dogs. As an outdoor dog in his previous life, he's intimidated by staircases and chooses to stay on the main floor, settling at the bottom of the stairs when his foster dad retires upstairs at night time. Otherwise, Lucky's a shadow of his foster dad, seeking to be together.  Not fond of the crate, Lucky has proven to be house trustworthy at home when his foster has run errands and at nights uncrated. Lucky rides well in the car.  After the initial start of the walk or when he sees something that excites him, Lucky hits his stride about the 1-mile mark with good leash manners. He needs to gain some muscle tone, tiring quickly. We understand that he lived with another dog and kids in his previous life, so we're expanding on that knowledge while he's in our care. Lucky hasn't been introduced to kids yet.  Interested? We'd love to hear from you if you have shepherd experience,  commitment to providing structure, exercise, and on-going training for Lucky to thrive as an indoor dog in his furever home.    ##979441## show less

Young and smart, looking to engage, is our first impression of Poppy. Are you looking for a training partner, a fantastic companion for dog sports? Poppy will grow up to be the total package in an experienced shepherd home.  Between 2 and 3 months of age, she is teething to lose those first set of baby teeth. Drawer knobs, the door frame are all candidates to ease the pressure if she isn't kept in a steady supply of toys to ease the ache. Poppy loves her humans; kisses, snuggles and sleeping at your feet are her favorite past times when she isn't keeping up with the resident shepherds. After her initial hesitancy, she shows that she can hold her own against their 90 plus pounds of energy and can wiggle her way into any activity to participate fully. Poppy's tail wags a mile a minute if she's meeting new people, although some folks seem slightly intimidating where she submissive pees at first. Poppy is learning that crating is a must to keep pups out of trouble; she rides in her crate quietly in the car and sleeps in one at night and when her family has to be away. With a great lung and stamina set, she makes her displeasure be known when left at home. She's realizing that her people always come back and crate time is bearable so her protests have settled down.  Poppy sleeps in her crate quietly  if it is next to her people at night, getting in about 5 hours before needing a quick potty break and back to sleep for another hour or so.   Balls, stuffed and squeaky toys, hard chew toys are all in vogue. Poppy loves to play. With her first exam and vaccinations out of the way, she is on schedule for her vaccine boosters every three weeks and her spay surgery at the end of March, early April unless her abdominal hernia requires an earlier spay to reduce the hernia.  Potty training is dialed in; she has been mostly accident free. A problem-solver, Poppy has figured out to scale pet gates bidirectionally, wondering why the resident dogs just don't follow her example. She is exceptionally coordinated for her age, scaling couches and exploring table tops when intriguing things call out to her. She has also met the resident cat with tail wagging, we'll continue to observe that interaction for cat workability. Poppy will soon settle into the household rules where she can steal slippers to her heart's content and learn all the other things that make shepherds into terrific companions.  This ball of sweet energy and attentiveness requires an experienced shepherd home committed to mental and physical exercise and consistent on-going training. Only those applicants who have raised shepherd puppies and have considerable experience will be considered. As a new arrival to rescue, we will spend some time with Poppy before considering applications.  ##973197## show less
