Rescue Me ID: 18-01-01-00241Dakota (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    TO MEET OUR DOGS PLEASE GO TO OUR WEBSITE: WWW.HAPPYHEARTSGSR.ORG AND COMPLETE AN ADOPTION APPLICATION Dakota is a VERY big boy! He's a tall and lanky 100 lbs with a very shy, slightly skittish temperament. He's 3 years old and came from a warm and loving home with dogs and cats and lots of love and walks. His owner had a stroke and he found himself without anything familiar and no one to care for him. The only alternative was a high kill shelter in the area so of course HH gladly took him in. Unfortunately, we have no available fosters so he had to be placed in boarding where he's depressed and mourning the loss of his family. His ideal ... (Read More)situation would be a calm but active family who can make him feel safe and cared for. He is house trained and very respectful. If you're a big dog person and would like to foster or adopt this beautiful boy please complete the appropriate application on our website.

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    To know more about us or adopt a dog from us please visit our website at http://www.happyheartsgsr.org. Josie is a courtesy post only, and is not a Happy Hearts Rescue dog, Happy Hearts is not responsible for any ownership, behavior, health, and representations made by the poster with respect to this dog; If you are interested in meeting Josie please contact Valerie at 805-217-5076. Josie is currently located in Simi Valley. Josie is a highly intelligent & stunning 5yr old female German Shepherd, approximately 70 pounds. While heads turn at her beauty, it's her classic GSD personality traits that make people fall in love with her - ... (Read More)loyal, protective and loving. Josie is a typically active Shepherd who thrives when she has a job. She sailed through obedience classes, and has completed a year of nose work training. She is at the point where she could be enrolled in competitive nose work trials. Josie needs an active home that can keep her mentally and physically stimulated - she does searches at home to keep her mind busy, and loves hiking, walking and is a good running partner. While Josie needs a home without small dogs or cats, she could possibly thrive with a larger, dominant male dog. She would do best in either an adult-only home, or one with older children or teenagers as small children scare her. Josie needs a dominant pack leader to bring out the very best of her GSD traits. She can be leash reactive to other dogs but responds well when walked on a prong training collar. While she was raised in a home with women, she also does very well with confident men. Josie is spayed, current on her vaccinations and micro-chipped. There is a small rehoming fee. (Less)

Meet Hooch, a 5 1/2 year old, 71 lb Korean Jindo- Belgian Tervuren mix (this is our best guess). Hooch is a sweet, VERY active, and intelligent dog that is very good with all people and children (older). He is good with other dogs as long as they are introduced properly and has not been cat tested. Unfortunately, Hooch's family has gone through a divorce and he is in need of a new FURever family that is in a better situation to give him the love and ATTENTION he deserves.

He would also make someone a great companion dog, as he doesn't mind being the center of attention at ALL times. He would thrive in a home with a yard, he enjoys being outside, but with the right about of exercise and attention he could be fine without a yard. He is house trained, he does not get up on the furniture without being told to do so, and does not bark or chew anything in the house. Hooch will be okay alone while you are at work, he does not have separation anxiety, but he will be super excited to see you when you get home. Are you looking to add a new cuddle bear to your life? Hooch is waiting for you... Hooch is neutered, microchipped and current on his vaccines. Hooch is recovering from surgery to repair a Partial Crutiate tear on his rear leg (TPLO). He is on restricted activity for a few weeks, but should be fully recovered soon.

    TO MEET OUR DOGS PLEASE GO TO OUR WEBSITE: WWW.HAPPYHEARTSGSR.ORG AND COMPLETE AN ADOPTION APPLICATION Cookie is as sweet as her name. She is 88 pounds of pure love and happiness. A German Shepherd-Rottweiler mix, Cookie likes company and is friendly with all people and does well with other dogs. She rarely barks (usually at the squirrel sitting in a tree taunting her).

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    To know more about us or adopt a dog from us please visit our website at http://www.happyheartsgsr.org. Booker is a sweetheart who is ready to love and bond with his new family. He is smaller for a German Shepherd, weighing in at around 60 lbs and is about 6 years old give or take. We took this handsome boy in after he was found on the streets with a severe skin condition. We believe he was out on the streets fending for himself for quite a long time based on his condition and demeanor when we brought him into the rescue. His fur is a lovely brindle and is growing in nicely. Even though he had a rough time out on the streets, Booker is ... (Read More)happy and so eager to love! He prances around and holds his head high while he smiles and wags his tail in anticipation of his person! He interacts with fellow dogs very well but has not had a chance to meet children or cats that we know of. He ignores passing cats and we believe that he would be fine with both. While he is eager to love and great with other dogs, he is a bit fearful. He seems to constantly expect to have something thrown at him or someone to hit him, and we believe that this stems from his time on the streets. But with the right amount of work and love he can work through those fears to become an incredible companion! If you think Booker could be the right dog for you, head to our website! There you can fill out an application for this sweet boy. (Less)

Chili is a 6-7 year old male Chow Chow/Golden Retriever mix who has retained all his 'puppy energy' and behaves more like a 3 year old. He walks well on a leash and loves going for walks and being active! Chili knows his basic commands, is house trained & socialized and enjoys riding in the car. He has chow aloofness with strangers but can warm up quickly and is very loving and affectionate. He can work a crowded room and meet and greet everyone with social aplomb. He is good with other dogs and goes to doggie day care and gets along ... (Read More)with everyone. He also considers himself to be the policeman and will correct other dogs who are 'misbehaving'. We think he would be good with cats but aren't sure. He is ok with children but unsure what to do with them as he has never spent any time with a child. Chili needs a stay-at-home person to adopt him, as he gets anxious when left alone. We would like his family to live in La Mesa or East County San Diego so he can be acclimated to a new home. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-01-01-00240Carson (male)

German Shepherd    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Carson is a stunning white 2 year old German Shepherd who is a lean 85 pounds. He is an affectionate, loving and curious dog who will need an experienced handler to continue his training - as he had a very neglectful owner who provided little to no training or socialization early on. The work we have done with him so far has shown us that with patience and consistency, Carson will be a dream dog. Carson was pulled from a shelter on the central coast. Since poor Carson had very little socialization early on, he is in process of learning about the world around him, as well as learning proper house manners. He has learned to sit, and ... (Read More)is learning to walk on a leash. He has an insatiable curiosity which makes it a bit difficult for him to pay attention during training sessions, but is incredibly entertaining. He is extremely smart, and learns very quickly once he understands. He is a medium energy dog who will be devoted to the person willing to spend the time with him to develop a strong trusting relationship. Carson came into the shelter bone thin with a rope cinched around his neck. Because of this neglect/mistreatment he has a difficult time trusting (though he really wants to) and he needs an experienced handler. He is timid but protective - especially when it comes to food and treats. He is also very sensitive when it comes to his neck - likely due to that rope. Use of prong collars and choke chains is strongly discouraged. He must have a person who can be both gentle and firm. He may be trainable when it comes to cats, but he seems to have a strong prey drive, and we therefore recommend a home without cats currently present. He also would like an active household without young children. Carson loves attention, and this desire can be used to help him learn. He has successfully met other dogs, and could probably live happily with another submissive dog who will not want to dominate him. This could also help his training progress more rapidly. The adoption donation for healthy adult dogs is $300. Special consideration is given to the adoption of older and special needs dogs. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. All dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis If you are interested in meeting Carson please complete an adoption (or foster) application on our website below.
