Our GSD/Aussie Shepherd mix is getting up there in age and having a rough time with his hips.  I'm not sure how much longer he has left.  We've got him on supplements and prescription medications and his he's going to live inside with us as much as he wants (he's previously been an  80% outside dog).  This guy has been one of the best dogs I've ever had and the only dog my wife has ever had an attachment to.  I realize they're not all that way, but I'd love to find another GSD to have in the household before our old fella passes on.

I'm not looking for show queens, full-blooded national winners with weird names, etc...just a good solid family dog with GSD guardian qualities for my two young daughters.  If they're ever home and feel scared, they bring him in and instantly feel "protected".  And to think, he was dumped on our road so many years ago with a small bucket of dog food and a MASSIVE tick infestation. It looked like blackberries had been squished all over our back deck as all those dog ticks died and fell off, and he got his energy back.

I'm at Lake of the Ozarks.  Any suggestions who/where to look, and idea on what I should expect to pay (don't think I've ever paid more than adoption fees for a dog before...)?

Best friends...he's sleeping on the floor next to my oldest daughter's bed right now.  He loves to sleep in the bed with her, but can't get up there on his own anymore.

Hi,

We've gotten rescues from several different places, Joplin Animal Rescue, Gail's second chance pets, and Pulaski County Animal rescue.  Adoption fees are usually around $100.00 per dog.  There is no better feeling than making a difference in a dogs life than to rescue him.(or her).  All our dogs have been rescues.  Our current "herd" is, a !4 year old Poodle, a 3 year old Yorkie Mix, and a Jack Russel/Chihuahua mix.  Nothing gets past the Jack Russel, no even the tiniest falling leaf and he's a charging bull mastiff.  Good luck with your search.  Google German Shepard rescues.

Hi,

Just found this on Facebook, and we've gotten dogs from Gail.

Annabelle (Shepard/heeler mix) has came a long way since she has came to Gail’s.  Unfortunately, no one has shown any interest in her. This sweet girl  was shy and bit by a snake to make it worse. She is doing great now!  She is social and She loves to play ball, loves her walks and is just the best listener. She does good with kids and other dogs. She would make a great addition to your family. ❤️🐾
Please contact Gail at 8704318229 to meet her! ❤️🐾

Get one from Joker. He's in the hospital right now, trying to get all his dogs adopted so he can come home and focus on himself for a bit. We have personally transported a German for him. Jax was the sweetest, most well mannered dog. Every member who has gotten a dog from Joker has been happy.
