For those of you with an elderly dog and noticing stiffness and joint pain. Please read this helpful tip on the Benefits of MSM.

We currently do not have any older dogs retired from the program and up for adoption. Check back next year for possible retiring dogs.

Only good homes with fenced in back yards will be considered with our retiring dogs. Spay neuter is required in most cases, especially females. A healthy GSD at a ripe old age lives on average to 12-15 years. Older dogs are ideal for people who do not want to go through the hyper-active adolescence stage that can last up to 2-3 years of age. Chewing, digging and jumping is greatly reduced in older dogs.

Please note that dogs over 7 only need their rabies shots. Parvo and distemper booster shots will most likely just break down their immune system. Do a titer test instead. If you are needing to board your dog at any time and need proof of shots for boarding, do a titer test for proof of your dog's immunities to parvo/distemper. If they will not accept this documentation find another boarding facility. This is a very serious issue for the health of your dog so don't let a boarding facility or Shot happy Vet, ruin your dogs health because of uneducated and outdated policies.
