Red Stick German Shepherd Rescue
Name: Mocha
ID: #201602

Sex: F
Age: 4-5 years
Heartworm: No
Adoption Fee: $250

Mocha is a gorgeous, adult, female German Shepherd Dog. We estimate that she's probably 4-5 years old, in the prime of her life. Mocha recently tested negative for heartworms, and she's spayed, microchipped, and up-to-date on vaccinations.

Her structure and appearance suggests that she likely comes from working lines: she has the thick-boned, strong, straight-backed look of DDR (East German) lines. Mocha also has the personality of these lines: intelligent, dominant, protective of her people, with high prey drive. She's not an appropriate "starter dog" for a first-time Shepherd owner, but she's an incredible dog for an experienced GSD lover who appreciates and understands this kind of dog.

Mocha has been great with all the people she's met. She previously lived with very young children and was gentle with them. However, she cannot live with small animals. We strongly prefer to place Mocha as an "only dog" in a home where she can bond deeply with her person, without competing for attention with another dog. She would be happiest as an only dog.

At home, Mocha loves belly rubs and affection from her people. She's loving and very devoted to her family. She is, however an "alpha female" who requires an experienced handler (for this reason, a professional training reference is required).

Mocha is looking for a breed-experienced adopter who understand the "drive" of working line dogs--especially prey-drive. She needs more than a walk and some basic training: she needs a job. She has the potential to thrive doing advanced obedience, or dog sports.

She is already house-trained and crate-trained.

A completed adoption application, with vet and personal references, and a home check are required to adopt Mocha. If you are interested in adopting Mocha, please fill out an adoption application. All adoptions are approved solely at the discretion of the RSGSR board of directors.
