Find A Pet


Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Labrador Retriever
Age: 5 years
Gender: Female

I love other dogs & all people! 

My siblings include:  Adam, Amber, Dawn, Jackie, Landon, Macon, Marcus and Tanner! 

Note from Brenda’s foster mom:

Brenda was a great puppy to foster. She is a little hyper but that is just puppy energy. She needs to play a lot or run around a yard. She is very smart and will chase and get the ball (not always bringing it back) but figures out squeaky toys very quickly and loves to make noise with them. She will walk around the house with a squeaky toy in her mouth making all kinds of noise and seems very pleased with herself.  She was learning to calm down when we would sit and watch television at night and I would tell her “easy” and she loves to have her belly rubbed. She will lay on the floor or anywhere if you rub her belly for her. She was great with snow and thought it was a lot of fun to dig in the snow and run through it. She was trying to figure out what was under it for awhile and then just runs around. She tends to inhale her food and I would give her small amounts at a time until she learned to eat slower. She would have dry food in the morning and 1/3 can of Puppy wet food (Pedigree) with a little bit of dry food at night.  For treats I was giving her baby carrots, ice cubes, Dino chews and small rawhides.  She did not like going into the crate for naptime or bedtime and would cry for about 5 minutes and then go to sleep. I would tell the puppies Night Night and her 2 siblings would run to the crate (I gave them 2 mini milkbones once they went in the crate) but Brenda would sit outside and wait until I put her in the crate. Shadow is very smart and will learn quickly. She knows sit, wait (her turn for a treat) and nice (taking treats). She will go to the door and cry when she has to go to the bathroom. She did not like the puppy pads and would rip them apart. 

I will be available for adoption on February 24th. I cannot have any visitors before February 24th. You will need to fill out an online application and receive a phone call back from a staff member that everything is ok with the application prior to February 24th. All family members and any dogs from the household need to be present at the time of the adoption.

We open at 9 am Saturday mornings and we will be helping adoptions in the order of when they submitted an approved application to us. There will be a sign in sheet on the front door at 8:30 am so that we can pull applications for the people that arrive between 8:30-9am. Again, the order in which adoptions will come in to the shelter to see any adoptable dogs or cats first thing on Sunday mornings will be as to when the application was submitted to Animal House Shelter so there is no need to come to the shelter any earlier than 8:30 to sign in. This will be the procedure for people that arrive between 8:30-9am.

After 9am, on Saturday mornings it will be first come, first serve after we help all of the adoptions that signed in between 8:30-9am. Most people submit general applications to us which do not specify a name or a particular litter they are interested in so there is no way for us to know until people arrive Saturday morning at 8:30 how many people are interested in a particular litter, puppy, kitten, cat or adult dog. We always have around 300 dogs & cats available for adoption and the adoption counselors will help you to find the right companion for your family! We look forward to meeting you!

Adoption donation: $450

All dogs are microchipped, neutered, current on all vaccines, heartworm tested and started on Tri Heart Plus & Vectra 3D.

Please fill out the adoption application and we will call you as soon as we receive it.
