Luna is only one year old. She is currently in a very high kill shelter. The Bowling Green Warren County Humane Society will bring her to their shelter and vet her for adoption or rescue. They also do transports to the Northeast. There are stops along the way thru KY, WV, MD, PA and sometimes NJ and NY.
Anybody have any ideas about who might be able to pull her? I havent got any connections w/ a rescue other then ROR and their not even close to there..Ill try posting to Facebook but I cant do that till I get home which won't be till after 10 tonite. She is a very pretty girl.
This is the response I got back from the adoption coordinator.... "She goes after other dogs, she's barrier aggressive as well, it could just be the shelter environment. She is NOT scared. Shes great w/ people, loves people, she's energetic and sweet w/ people but she just barks and goes after other animals."
It sounds like she would be a great only dog. Most fosters have other dogs, so finding a rescue for her could be problematic - unless the foster has a way to isolate her. Maybe she would not be that bad out of the shelter environment?
This rescue does adopt out of state. If someone on their transport route wanted to adopt, the shelter would put her on the transport. The link to transport is in my third post. I imagine an adopter could arrange transport in another direction as well.
I am so glad Stevenzachsmom started this thread. I don't come on the board that much anymore, but I happened to see the thread yesterday and recognized Luna. She is the half-sister to one of my dogs, same dam. Luna has a very nice pedigree, her sire is a prominent VA SchH3 stud. She is also schutzhund trained and has been shown in the German-style ring several times.
A friend tried to adopt her today but the shelter said she was adopted. It would have been a very good appropriate home. I can only hope Luna is in a good home.
She was surrendered due to a divorce. If anyone wants more info, feel free to pm me.
Sandy deserves all the credit. She recognized Luna and contacted the appropriate people. Thank you Sandy. The shelter has our contact information, so hopefully, we will be contacted, should Luna be returned.
I hope that who ever got Luna from the Shelter in Bowling Green will have a heart and get in touch with the guy whose wife turned her in there.I am heart sick over the fact that a person could take a beloved friend and turn her in to a shelter! I am shocked that this happens!
If anyone has any knowledge of where Luna is, please contact me. There are many people who care about her and want to know that she is safe and loved. If you have adopted her, I would be happy to help you with training advice. She is a high-drive dog and may be a lot to handle, especially for the novice GSD owner. You can send me a private message here, or else email me at: [email protected].
Again, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me! My only concern is Luna's well-being. Thank you.
Absolutely, what Sandy said. I didn't know who this girl was, when I posted her here. This is a very nice shelter, but they have seriously misread this dog. I have been in contact with them to stress that she needs a very experienced owner. Sadly, she was adopted out, a day before they got the memo. They said they had planned on only adopting her to someone with GSD experience. But experience to us and experience to them could clearly not be the same thing.
The shelter has my contact information, should Luna be returned. I'm hoping if the new adopter can't handle her, they return her to the shelter rather than passing her around. Correct me if I am wrong Sandy, but this is not about trying to take the dog back? It is about making sure she is safe and in a home where the owner is not in over his/her head.
You are correct Jan, no one is trying to take her back. It would put my mind at ease to know she is part of a loving family living as an indoor dog. And she's going to need training, there are some things that can come through from one side of her pedigree. She was a handful as a puppy, her full name is Lunatic and there was a reason for that!
