Facts About Me




My Story

Cora IS AVAILALBE (updated 08-01-2019).

To meet any of our dogs you must first complete our online adoption application on our website. For more information and the adoption application for Cora, please visit our website below

I take Cora for walks. She was shy when we first met, didn&#39t want much to do with me, but quickly loosened up and now we&#39re great friends. I think I might actually be her best friend in the world, so I&#39m not going to be the one to tell her that I have a dog at home. When I walk into the kennel, she barks to let me know that she sees me, even if I&#39m not looking at her. She&#39s so excited when I take her outside, you&#39d think it was the first time she ever got to feel grass on her paws. We are still working on her jumping and hugging, but it&#39s really more about training myself not to find it cute and funny, because she&#39s so cute and funny. She loves to give hugs and is super affectionate, but she does know that she shouldn&#39t be jumping and a simple (inside voice) &#39no&#39 will get her to stop jumping and go into a sit. She&#39s been good around all of the other dogs we&#39ve met, but was unsure about some of the small dogs who barked (obscenely) and acted like they carried switchblades. She didn&#39t give them any attitude, but did look wary. We pass a barky Pom every day (behind a wrought iron fence) and while she jumped backwards the first time we crossed paths, she doesn&#39t even act like she hears her anymore. She knows she needs to sit before we cross the street, won&#39t even go to the bathroom inside the kennel (because that&#39s for peasants), is house trained, easy on a leash, and ridiculously sweet.It took a while to get updated pictures of her on the website, because she fancies herself a lap dog and you need a little more distance for pics of anything other than her nose. Most of the pics you see are fake-out pics where I pulled out my phone, got ready as we were walking, then stopped and quickly snapped before she had a chance to run back to my legs. She&#39s big on giving kisses and a big leaner. She was really thin from breastfeeding her puppies, but has filled out now and looks amazing. She&#39s on the smaller side for a GSD and I think she&#39d be fine in a condo, as long as she was exercised regularly. Walks are her favorite thing in the world and she&#39s a great companion for long hikes. We&#39re always working on her recall and, I have to say, she has one of the most enthusiastic comes you&#39ve ever seen. It&#39s like she&#39s been at the end of the leash for 20 years and the end of the leash was the Titanic and you saying &#39come&#39 was what saved her and allowed her to carry on. She runs back, finishes with a jumping sit, and stares into your face… smiling and looking at you like you&#39re the best thing to ever happen to her. Then she wants pets. Naturally. Cora was the mother of our C Litter, did a great job raising her puppies, but they&#39ve all since been adopted. Of course, the mom is always with us much longer, even if she&#39s as awesome as Cora. Everyone wants a puppy. Do you want a super affectionate adult dog who won&#39t turn your furniture into toothpicks and who will look at you like you&#39re the best thing since electricity? Adopt Cora. She&#39s awesome.This beauty is a bit of an escape artist, so she will need a family who understands that she can&#39t be left outside alone. Sheâ&#194&#128&#194&#153s also young and mouthy and, even though she doesnâ&#194&#128&#194&#153t have a mean bone in her body, wouldnâ&#194&#128&#194&#153t be a good fit for young children because of her mouthiness.

The minimum adoption donation for adults is $300 and the adoption donation for puppies is $400 – $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
