Aries and Freya were littermates and have been together all their
lives. Because of their owners’ divorce, they lost the only home
they had known. Neither party was able to find an apartment that
would allow German Shepherds, so they turned to GSRNE and
asked if we would keep the two dogs together. We said we would
try.
The first step was to find a foster home that would take two dogs
together, and we were able to do that. We learned that Aries took
some time to adjust to his foster Dad. He was happy to play fetch
with his favorite Frisbee, he ate his meals and slept at night, but it
took a few weeks before he showed how affectionate he can be.
He’s fine meeting people but prefers that you throw his toy rather
than trying to touch him right away.
Freya, on the other hand, is open to staying close for ear rubs,
butt scratches and friendly pats right from the start; she has the
sweetest expression and seems to be smiling. Aries will play
fetch until your arm gets tired, and you have to be the one to say
when it’s time for a rest. Freya is not interested in toys; she gets
her exercise by chasing Aries while he’s playing and gives little
herding nips to his heels; he doesn’t seem to notice. When she’s
not doing that, Freya will look around for flying insects to chase
and catch. She’ll look like she’s admiring the flowers, but she’s
really on the hunt.
Aries especially likes to go for walks and even jogs, and
continuing that will be important; he has slimmed down from the
110 pounds he weighed when he came into GSRNE and should
get to about 85 pounds. He’s recovering from an injury to his
right hind leg that happened when he landed wrong after leaping
to catch his Frisbee. His leg is almost back to normal, but jumping
and leaping are no longer allowed. He’s back to daily walks and
jogs, though.
