We realize what a difficult
decision it is to find a new home for your German Shepherd Dog.
We recognize that you care enough to give your dog a second chance for
a good life through our re-homing program. In order to ensure
that we find a new home where it will be loved and cared for, please
answer the following questions as fully and as honestly as
possible. This allows us to better assess your dog's needs during
this transition period.
If accepted into our
program, we have experienced people that can work on training, medical
or behavior problems. Please make us aware of any issues, no matter how
minor, so that we can place the dog in an appropriate foster home where
he can brush up the skills he he may need to be more adoptable. This
helps insure your dog gets the best possible forever home.
If your dog is accepted into
our program you will be required to sign over ownership of the dog to
rescue. If space in foster care is available, we will take
possession immediately. Space in foster homes, however, is
always in short supply and we may request that you continue to care for
your dog until an appropriate permanent home is found. In some cases we
have to board the dogs while we are waiting a foster or forever
home. We will not release the dog to a shelter.
Thank you for ensuring that
your dog has bright future ahead of him instead of facing the end of
his life alone, feeling abandoned and unloved in a shelter.
