Hank
GSRNE #070
1996 - 2008

I was researching German Shepherd Rescue in the US since there were no groups in Canada at that time and found the very best in New England – that’s where I saw Hank.   Somehow that boy knew he was destined to be with Rob.  I’m not quite sure how he did it, but after a few weeks and many many email messages and phone calls, and a 24-hour drive from Toronto to New England and back, the adoption was complete.

From the minute Hank laid eyes on Rob, no one else in the universe existed for him (other than the nice lady who filled his dishes every day, took him for walks and gave him his special treats).  Everyone in the neighborhood knew about Hank as soon as he “came home”.  He was sure that everyone walking by the house or coming to the door were there to see him and he loved everyone.  Hank welcomed us home every day for more than 8 yrs squeaking his favorite toy; always with an enthusiastic story to tell about the mailman’s visit and what his other dogs and cats had been doing while we were out!

Hank and RobOne of his very favorite things was to hang out with the guys & watch a game on TV.  Hank had his own special chair and if there wasn’t enough seating guests would sit on the floor – no one would sit in Hank’s chair without his okay.  We soon found out that our boy had a particularly special talent; he could tell me when his daddy was about 10 minutes away from the house which was amazing, since Rob never came home at the same time.  It didn’t matter if he had been away business, attending a late meeting, or golfing …. Hank knew when he was near…a psychic link, a bond that will never be broken.  Even if Rob was in a plane, Hank would start to pace just about the time he was coming in for a landing; then the whining would begin in earnest when he was 10 minutes from the front door.  I now have to rely on a phone call since Degenerative Myelopathy robbed me of my “early warning” alert.

A very BIG thanks to Janice Ritter for having faith in us and breaking the rules just this once so that we could share our life with this extraordinary boy.

Biography

This black and red beauty is a German Shepherd mix with lots of love to give. At 5 years old she’s housebroken and Georgiealready knows her basic commands.

Georgie loves her toys and is overjoyed when she discovers something new to play with in her basket; if it makes noise, even better! When she’s home she stays close to her foster mom, leaning against her for kisses. She loves attention and is eager to please. Often she can be found sleeping on her back with her feet in the air!

When someone new arrives Georgie can be timid and fearful. She barks and then retreats to a hiding spot in the back of the house. Once she knows it’s safe she’ll join the group and start to relax, although she still keeps a watchful eye on everyone. She wasn’t socialized properly in her former home and is slowly learning.

Georgie is looking for a quiet home that will shower her with love and attention while helping her gain confidence.

Biography

Manny has had quite a few changes in his seven years, but he’s managed to adjust each time and is eager to please; Manny [3]he’s food-motivated and enjoys doing obedience exercises for treats.

He came to GSRNE from a shelter, and we were told that his former owner had adopted him from there five years ago and was now losing her home to a foreclosure.  The reason he was turned in the first time was due to the owner’s homeowner insurance being canceled because she had a German Shepherd dog.  Sadly, the people didn’t check around for another insurance company.

At one point, Manny lived with 6 children, ages 8-16; and with 2 cats and a Pomeranian, so he’s had a variety of social experiences.

Initially, in foster care, he would race around the fenced yard as though he didn’t know what to do with himself; hisManny [4] foster Mom called it having the “Zoomies.” He would charge at the fence when the neighbor’s dogs were out in their yard barking at him, but can walk past other dogs on leash as long as those dogs are under control.  Manny is constantly learning new words and commands, and he has let us know that he really likes chewing on a bully stick or a marrow bone or playing with a stuffed toy.  When he was given a Kong stuffed with peanutbutter, though, he did not show much interest.

Mostly, Manny likes doing things with his humans and is not interested in having another dog for a playmate.  If you’re looking for an active guy who will find you more interesting than anything else in his world, he may be the one you’re looking for!
