INGA is a beautiful, fluffy little girl, who's been mostly blind since birth. She was surrendered to a local shelter by her owners, who claimed they didn't have time for her anymore. But...she's an easy-going and undemanding dog with an incredibly gentle personality! And since she can't see much, she was terrified at the shelter with the chaos of noise and smells.
Inga really is a gem of a GSD! She's soft, loving, and very lovable! She loves people, and enjoys regular walks, snuggles, and general human attention.
Inga does just fine with other animals -- including cats! -- but since she isn't able to see much, she does need some extra space when it comes to other dogs. She would do best in a home where other dogs are respectful and share the space well. She can become a bit snappy with other dogs if they rush her, get in her face, or otherwise slam into her as she goes about her home and yard. She does actually love to play and romp around with other dogs -- she loves to hang out with one of her foster fur-siblings! She would be just fine as an only pet as well.
Inga has been mostly blind since birth, and gets along very well! No other known medical issues.
INGA'S ADOPTION FEE: $250
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.
