This is Freddie...

An unusual name for a german shepherd.  But as a owner surrender to the shelter, that was his name from a pup, so it shall be.

Freddie is approx 4-5yrs old, neutered, UTD in vaccinations and chipped.

In coming to the shelter he got sick… not once, but twice.  So he lost weight.   But due to the way he was bred, and then confined in a kennel while at the shelter, he now needs a lot of TLC.   Freddie needs to put on weight… but the weight needs to be in the form of muscle for his hind end. He also needs proper exercise. Walking on concrete, grass, thru sand, or snow drifts, and up slight inclines. Going for a couple miles walk on a trail won’t do it. His feet and upper thighs need to develop good muscle to give him comfort.  So we probably will say he is a special needs guy that needs a home willing to put in the time to help him achieve a better quality of life.  We have done this before.  There is Moose, now 14yrs and Ruger, now 3yrs just to name a few.  With a dedicated family, Freddie will improve and have a great life. 

Right now, we feel, no cats, no children, and if another dog, a nice middle aged female is recommended.  He is a little shy at first with strangers and unsure; yet with a gentle introduction, he will warm up nicely.  When we went to take his picture, as you can see... he thought we were going to steal his soul.  hahaha.

Greetings Humans……

My name is Kyla.  And some days I am sad.  When Aunt Kathy said she was going to take my picture… I looked at her and wondered if it would hurt.  I try so hard to be a good dog and blend in like another flower in the garden.  My foster dad and Aunt Kathy said that I should not try so hard and just relax and smile and have fun.  I’m working on that, really I am.

I am a 5yr old bi-color female that gets along well with other dogs.

They think I would do best with just adults, as children are too scary.   A secure 6ft privacy fence is required.   I’m still working on trust and settle issues.   I need a patient and quiet home.   Aunt Kathy says, still a work in progress.

So if you are work from home or a retired human… you may want to check me out.  We would be able to make special memories together.

Fill out an application and come meet Kyla…… and start making special memories.

Calling all White German Shepherd lovers....

Meet Nala.

This gorgeous 5yr old female is looking for her forever home. Well mannered, plays well with well-mannered dogs, so-so with cats, and older children preferred. She found her way into rescue when her family could no longer take care of her. It was recently discovered she has canine DLE, a form of auto-immune skin disorder.... Lupus. ...

We here at Simply Shepherds Rescue have her medical records and are now putting her on a raw diet to detox her body of the bad cells and meds and try to put her body into remission.

Nala is UTD in vacs and needs to go to a family that will continue to feed her on a raw food diet. To some, that is no problem, to others, it may be a challenge. However, this is what will help keep her healthy and comfortable. She loves to play fetch, and she would love to be a part of your life.

Are you looking for that special soul.... then contact Simply Shepherds Rescue

Meet Kingsley.

This wonderful gent of 4yrs is quite the charmer. Well mannered, good with kids, folks, other dogs.... yet no cats in his universe. He is very laid back and would do best in a home either by himself or with a well mannered companion. He is crate trained but is not happy and prefers to be around all the human action.

He is neutered and UTD in vaccinations and microchipped.

Please take the time to consider him as a great addition to your life.
