Please consider that some of these dogs have been abandoned or ignored by their previous owners, having little interaction with someone who cares about them.

When adopted, they will need time to adjust to the changes in their life.

Hi, my name is Rizzo, and I'm a gorgeous 1.5 yr old female Dutch Shepherd who was transferred from a shelter where I was surrendered by my former owner and I was running out of time. When my foster/dog trainer mom picked me up, she noticed that I had a number of bite wounds on my face and head. This experience has left me a bit mistrustful of other dogs. My foster mom says I enjoy my humans and tagging along on their adventures. I'm a true working dog with high drives. I've been working hard on my impulse control and I obey a sit/stay, down/stay, come, heel and place commands. I'm well behaved in my crate, but sitting still is not my favorite thing to do. I will need a Dutch Shepherd/Malinois experienced handler who can provide me with the leadership and mental/physical stimulation that working dogs need. I tend to be neutral around other dogs but I still have trouble interacting with them without proper guidance and/or redirection. I'm treadmill trained and muzzle trained. I also understand low-level e-collar training. My foster mom will offer five free training sessions to an interested adopter who has the skill set to meet my needs. If you are interested, please submit an online application at adoptagsd.org. My adoption fee is $400.

Although we do our best to keep our adoptable animals page as current as possible,the animals you see may already be in an adoption process.
