Hi! I'm Geronimo. My foster mom says I am a bit of a velcro dog and definitely a boy who loves human attention. She also says I'm not one of those "no off switch" dogs - I love a rousing game of tennis ball and playing with my foster brother. But once I've played, I'm perfectly content for some belly rubs and a nap.
Geronimo's foster mom, here. Geronimo is a moderately active 5 year old GSD who was returned to VGSR due to changes in the family dynamics. He is a wonderful boy in the house - he shows no destructive behaviors, is fully housebroken, does well on a leash, and does well in the car. And he will bark a warning if he hears something, but is not overly noisy. He just rolls with life. br />

VGSR and COVID-19
Friends and Supporters,
We have been monitoring this evolving situation and wanted to share with you, the steps we are taking. Our highest priority is the safety of our adopters and volunteers.
While VGSR has cancelled all rescue events until further notice, the community and shelters need support and we are still taking in GSDs. If you are not looking to adopt, we encourage you to consider fostering.
At this time we are taking applications; however we are not scheduling home visits. Adopters who have been approved as of March 22nd will be able to coordinate meeting a dog, after an initial phone conversation with the foster and the foster determining that there is a possible match. Visits will be conducted outside in an area where social distancing can be implemented and only after both parties agree to meet and verify they are well and have not had known exposure. Precautions to be taken during the visit should be discussed prior to meeting.
Thank you, volunteers, adopters and supporters for your help and patience as we continue to work to save lives, help the communities in which we live and find great homes for our dogs.
Luna continues to make improvements every day, slowly coming out of her shell. I have been fostering her for almost three weeks and she continues to be timid. She enjoys our trips outside and going for walks in the park, where she loves to try and chase squirrels(so she most likely would not be good with cats).
She doesn’t beg for food and is not a Velcro Shepherd
I have learned that Luna is afraid of men. She will need a home that is experienced with nervous and timid dogs and would most likely be best suited for a woman. Luna needs time, work, and patience to overcome her fears.
