Greater Houston German Shepherd Dog Rescue

PO Box 610150 , Houston, TX, 77208

Shelter Description

Greater Houston German Shepherd Dog Rescue (GHGSDR) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We are a breed-specific group dedicated to the rescue of German Shepherd Dogs (GSDs). Our GSDs are obtained from public shelters where they are scheduled to be euthanized or they are given to us directly by their owners. All dogs receive the necessary health care, including spaying/neutering, are micro-chipped, and then are placed in a foster home until they are adopted. Our dogs are guaranteed a place in our organization throughout their life. We provide information and education to the community with emphasis on the importance of spaying/neutering and heart-worm prevention, and we work with transporters, animal shelters and other rescue organizations to develop a better life for all GSDs. GHGSDR is guided by three core values: dedication, integrity and compassion

Hi! I'm Coco! I'm also Kokomo, Momo and Silly Girl. Let's see... about me... Well, I'm a German Shepherd, like all the way. I love my people and love to follow them around in case they need help. I love learning. And I love playing ball. That's actually one of my favorites, playing ball. I like to drop balls at your feet just in case you want to play too! Going on walks and car rides are fun too. They have some dog friends at my foster home I play with, they're young and goofy and we have fun. I'm house trained, crate trained, and know all my basic commands. Cats are cool too, but I do enjoy the random squirrel chase.  Foster mom says I'm totally awesome, except I suck at one thing... meeting new people. Yeah yeah, it's just that I get scared, so I start acting a fool. Apparently it's not what I'm supposed to do, so they've been working on it. So I'm on the hunt for my perfect human to keep working with me. Someone that really wants a German Shepherd, likes to play ball, watch movies and be my wing man. When I get scared, I have a scary bark, so I need someone who isn't afraid and who can be consistent in continuing the training I've started. I've met a couple trainers, and the best way to meet me will be with one. I'll go board with them, and you can meet me and the trainer to get us started in the right direction.  show less

Hello,  I'm Haper Graces's foster mom and I'd like to tell you about this special girl. GHGSDR was notified about Haper Grace by a local vet ER.  She was brought in by some nice people that found her hiding under a bush with a broken leg.  She most likely was hit by a car.  GHGSDR took ownership of her and had surgery for her leg and made sure she was in great health. Harper Grace was almost completely healed when she came to our home to be fostered.  We immediately recognized her intelligence.  She is a 1-year old sweet, pretty girl who falls fast for her people and is eager to please.  She resides with a male GSD and a senior poodle.  Harper Grace would do better in a home without cats.  She LOVES to go!  We take her to restaurants, stores, and parks and she is always well behaved. She loves to play ball!  Harper Grace has great house manners and will go rest in her opened crate occasionally.  She eats and sleeps in her crate and is crated when her people are gone.  Harper Grace has had professional training and has free refresher sessions for life!  The trainers feel strongly that Harper Grace needs a home that will embrace the fact that Harper Grace is a working dog and needs a job!  That might look like a home that wants to do competitive dog training or some kind of service dog.  She will need more than a home that just wants to throw the ball in the yard for her. Harper Grace is ready to start her life with her furever family! show less

Violet is a curious, sweet, food driven pup. I mention food driven because it will be an excellent tool when training a new puppy with positive reinforcement.  She has used her nose and intelligence to locate the treat drawer and has learned a “sit”.  Violet has even learned how to ring a bell a the back door when she wants to go out!  She is a very fast learner.  Violet is a "golden sable" German Shepherd dog: Tan, brown and black with the tips of each toe appearing to be painted black :)  She loves hanging out with her human foster family, and will even snuggle if the mood strikes her right.  She loves greeting her foster family with enthusiasm. Violet has learned to play with two bigger German Shepherd foster siblings.  She loves zoomie-ing around the backyard and even plays fetch!  She loves pulling a rope and having a ball thrown for her. Violet is about 80% potty trained, most accidents are simply from excitement. She has been getting some leash and pack walking experience and does great job walking and not pulling uncontrollably.  Violet has done very well sleeping in her kennel at night.  She sleeps soundly through the night.  Violet can be left in the kennel for short periods of time without too much stress.  She will often times go into her kennel on her when she is ready to nap. Violet is shy, as with most puppies every experience is the first.  She takes about a week to open up and "bloom".  We would ask if an adopter is interested that if at all possible to view her at her foster family's home--this will allow the adopter to see her true self, without apprehension.  We can already tell she will grow to be a loyal and protective dog.
