BUDDY is a playful and energetic little guy who's looking for his forever home! He was recently surrendered by his owner, who was no longer able to care for him.
Buddy is an 18-month old energetic cutie patootie, who LOVES life! He loves, loves, loves to play -- especially fetch. He enjoys human attention so much he can't stop himself from wiggling with excitement while being petted! He loves to play with his foster fur-sister, and is starting to learn how to play appropriately -- he's never been taught any manners, so is a rough player at times. He's around 50lbs and is quite a little firecracker -- he will need a patient and loving home with time and willingness to work daily on his training. He's a diamond in the ruff, and will make a fantastic companion for the right family!
Buddy loves to play with other dogs, but is working on learning what good doggie manners and appropriate play are. He can sometimes be a little over-the-top or rough with other dogs, so his ideal home will have a well-mannered dog who Buddy can learn from and who will correct him when he gets a little out of hand.
No health concerns!
BUDDY's ADOPTION FEE: $300
This fee covers only part of what we spend to vet, board and rehab the dogs we save. On average we spend over $450 on each dog. We made a decision to keep our adoption fee at the 2005 level even though vet prices have doubled and tripled since then. We are constantly fundraising to cover the deficit. At minimum, your adoption fee includes the dog's spay/neuter, heartworm test, heartworm treatment if needed, rabies shot, distemper/parvo shot, bordatella shot, deworming, monthly heartworm and flea preventives, and microchip. In many cases it also includes surgery and various types of vet treatment for standard issues such as hot spots, ear infections and so on.

PLEASE READ THIS:
We're picky about our adopters! GSDs are not for everyone. They demand lots of time/effort/training. They shed all year round and are big and scare lots of people. They "mouth" and are usually strong-willed and stubborn. You have to have references and a home visit. If you're not willing/able to deal with any of this, please don't waste your time applying.
All MoGS dogs must be inside family pets. We do not adopt to outdoor only homes. You have to put your dog indoors (NOT in the yard) when you're not home. One adopted MoGS dog died after the owners left to run errands, left her outdoors, someone opened the gate, and she was hit by a car. Privacy fences have been broken into, gates have been opened, thieves have stolen dogs. NEVER leave your dog outdoors when you're not home!!
You're required to make a lifetime commitment. Only you can make sure the dog is safe, loved and cared for, for life. The minute you adopt, that responsibility is yours. Are you unable or unwilling to make a lifetime commitment? Do not apply. What's your plan for unexpected events and major changes? New baby? Divorce? Moving? How you will provide for your dog if your family breaks up? If you move? If you have a child?
You're making a lifetime commitment to a MOGS Dog. We expect you to keep it! It's YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to stick by your family member -- no matter what.
