Due to a run of extremely bad luck and tragedies this year, I need to find foster for my GSD Koshka ASAP. He is currently in boarding in Derby NY with his 'little sister' Krissie (who I'm looking for foster as well, but the chances of finding something for them together is slim). I am currently in South Dakota with no transportation, no home, and no money. I am also contacting his breeder to see if she has any options or ideas, and if I cannot find foster, then I will ask her to place him in a new home.
Koshka is my Service Dog Candidate, and I would really like to keep him, but until I can get situated somehow, I have nowhere to put him, and no money to keep boarding him. (Krissie is my Emotional Support Dog, so they are my team of help). He was born November 5th of 2011, and his pedigree is here: Koshka Vom Himmelhoch
He has not had much training, and it has probably fallen to the wayside being in the kennel and not getting regular work. He's very very toy/ball focused (more than food) and knows the name of Piggy, Ball, and Wubba (his favorite toys). He's quite friendly, gets along well with most anybody but might be too rough for many dogs just because he is enthusiastic, and pretty attached to Krissie. He is not neutered, and if I am to be able to keep him, I'd prefer he remain unaltered.
He's pretty stable as far as temperament, and doesn't seem to show much fear at anything, and the very few times he does, he recovers quite quickly. He is super gentle with his mouth on people when playing, but keep fingers out of the way with the ball, as he has them strong jaws. He's quite eager to please (especially if there might be fetch involved) and not quite so eager to give the ball up (unless you have another). The training he has had has been mostly positive, and very very mild corrections which haven't been needed much.
At boarding with his sis.

If you or somebody you know would be able to foster him (and/or Krissie), please contact me.
