#494 Riley-b

Update on 05/01/2018 Riley passed her puppy AKC test, and is starting a 6 week course for her manners training this week. Adopted on 3/25/2018 Bio Riley came to GSRNE after her first family realized that, given their already very busy lives, caring for a young puppy was too much work. Four-month old Riley, however, immediately found a home with her foster family and her brother, Ramble, another GSRNE rescue. Riley is energetic, playful, and ready for anything—a game of fetch, a car ride,...

#478 Chance

Update on 8/29/2017: I think we just passed the 3 month mark with Chance and he's become such an integral part of our lives, we can't remember what things were like without him.  He has gotten better being around men and boys and he is devoted to our boys, who cherish him.  Our younger son, Sam, has even taught him new trick - High 5. We have settled into a routine with a couple daily walks, play time outside with his beloved Jolly Ball, and hang out time with us.  We've gone to the local...

#475 Wolfgang

Update on 8/18/2017: Wolfgang's Mom says- "It is hard to put into words how much Wolfgang has affected my family.  He is the star of our show.  His energy keeps us moving, whether it's playing fetch, taking walks or discovering new things in the backyard with us, where he prefers to be.  We still can't get him in the pool, though.  He'll venture to the first step and that's it.  But to keep him cool outside, the hose always serves its purpose.  We are endlessly amused watching Wolfgang...

#463 Lionel (Lion)

Update on 12/28/2016: Looks like Lion is getting spoiled at his forever home. 🙂 Lion's Mom says "He's a ham but hard to get any active pictures of him as he just looks like a black blur on the screen. So his best shots are at bedtime."                                 Adopted on 1/29/2017: Bio: We met Lion when he was 8 months old, after he had been left at a shelter.  Someone had bred his parents and found they...

Update on 11/4/2018 We just heard from Chloe’s adopters and we’re thrilled to hear that her life has been one big adventure! “We cannot thank GSRNE enough for bringing Chloe into our lives.  She is just the most wonderful dog anyone could ever want.  She goes everywhere with us.  We recently took her on a very long road trip - 7,000 miles !!!   Our main destination was Best Friends Animal Sanctuary where Chloe was a participant in the Strut Your Mutt fund raiser.  We explored all over...

#445 Suki

Adopted: April 16, 2016 AGE: 2 years Click for more photos Password: Suki   Suki's original write up: If intelligence is on the top of your list when you think of the qualities you want in a GSD, then Suki may be the dog for you. Her keen intelligence will help her excel in obedience or agility and her serious hunt drive would make Nose Work fun for both of you, especially if the reward is a toss of the ball! Suki came into GSRNE in January 2015, when she was under one year old. She...
