When you inquire about a dog, the following questions might be helpful:

1. Why are you giving up your dog?

2. Has the dog ever bitten, nipped or 'gone after' anyone?

3. Does it have any health problems? Who is your vet? May I contact him/her?

4. Where did you get the dog? Does it have papers?

5. Does your dog have any training? Is it housebroken? crate trained?

6. Is the dog left alone for long periods? What does it do? Bark? Dig? Chew? Is it an inside or outside dog? Where does it sleep?

7. How does the dog behave with adults, children? Other dogs? Cats?

8. Is your dog mellow? calm? energetic? protective? affectionate?


Hello, My name is Luna, and I live in Dixon, CA. I am a seven year old female, papered, white German Shepard, and I am in the need of a new home.
THE GOOD: I am a beautiful well-behaved lady that is very happy just hanging out. I am a little spoiled, and live inside, but am potty trained, and do not chew on things. My health is good, all my shots are current, I am spayed and microchipped. I have grown up in a house with kids, and a cat (and even though he was kind of a pain, as you can see in the photo we got along well.) I get along with other dogs of all shapes and sizes. I love my family, and they love me, and hate the thought of having to give me a way. Unfortunately, it looks like I may need to go to a new home.
THE BAD: Even though my family have had me since I was 8 weeks old, and were diligent about training and socializing me properly, I have some anxiety issues. Other than my immediate family that I live with, I have never been fond of other people. Everyone thinks I am a pretty dog, and wants to be my friend. I however tend to be scared of people, so I bark at them to leave me alone. I have never tried to hurt anyone, I just prefer to be left alone, and will go stay in my bedroom when people come over. No matter how many times I meet someone I just am not interested in making new friends. I am more tolerant of strangers, if say I am at the park and they have a doggy friend with them. My human Grandma has developed dementia and is going to be moving into my house, so my family can take care of her. She gets very confused and is really scared of me. I can understand because I am scared of her as well. My family thinks that the two of us living together is probably not a good idea. They don’t want to see either one of us get scared and do something that would be bad.
I understand that I am not the easiest dog to get along with, But I really am a good girl deep down. Finding a new home for me is not going to be easy. But if you have experience with dogs like me, and are willing to be patient, I am sure that I can adjust to a new home. Even though I have grown up with kids, because I scare easily I think probably a new home without children would probably be best. If you have another dog for me to play with, one that can teach me that you are a good person, that would probably be helpful, and if you have a cat, then I suppose I will be nice to it as well.

If you are interested in maybe adopting me feel free to call or text my Human. His name is Doug and his number is 707-322-9694

Additional info from Doug: Luna has always been good around my children growing up. Because of her general anxiety around people she is never left out with other people around. So no real exposure to other children except in passing. As far as training she is house broken, good on a leash. She knows verbal commands for sit, down stay, leave it. I have a park across the street from my house and am able to take her over there off leash without fear of her running off, or running towards someone. She does get excited and wants to go play with other dogs. I frequently have her in the garage while I am working and she never wanders.


Important Note About Dog Descriptions

Please remember that the descriptions of dogs (of Dogs Available) have been written by GSRNC volunteers and are usually based only upon our observation of the dog since the time it was rescued. While we try to provide dog descriptions that are fair and accurate, the nature of our work involves contact with dogs whose background and history are unknown to us. GSRNC cannot warrant or guarantee any dog's future behavior. For example, if we say that a rescue dog gets along with children, cats, or other dogs, this statement is usually based upon the fact that one of our volunteers has observed the dog interacting with his or her own children or pets. While this information may be helpful, we cannot be certain of how a dog will do with the children or pets in your home. If you are considering adopting, we encourage you to come to one of our Adoption Days and meet our rescue dogs. Ultimately, only you can decide whether one of our dogs is right for you.
