This beautiful pup is Zoey. She will be one year old on May 12, 2017. She was born with a birth defect and has daily medical needs which need to be met.She has gone through so much already in her short life and yet hasn't let any of it get her down. She has been in the same foster home since birth. She has been in a loving family and has had fantastic opportunities with this family. The paragraph below is her medical needs description. We wanted to be as detailed as possible because it will take a dedicated and special family to take care of Zoey. She has antibiotics 2-3 x day depending on which she's on. She takes bethanachol for bladder 3x a day. She gets urine culture every 3-4 weeks. Prior to culture she needs to be off antibiotics for 3-4 days. This is always the worst part because her urine has a very strong smell during this time. The plan is to gradually increase her bethanacol dose 1.5 tabs 3x day. Then when she urinates, we need to immediately get an xray to see if her bladder is empty. The problem is she goes potty only tiny amounts and hasn't been able to empty her bladder, This is the reason she continues to get infections. After the culture is collected, She is put back on antibiotics until the results come in. Her bladder is weak and abnormal so we are trying everything we can to keep the infection away. She needs to be constantly supervised as we need to make sure she is urinating to empty her bladder and her infection doesn't get bad enough to make her sick. If you have made it through all that information and still want more, here is why we love this girl so much. She is the sweetest pup ever. As you can tell in the video, you can't tell she has medical issues at all. She is playful, loves her humans and all the animals in her current foster home. Cats, horses, goats, other dogs.... She loves them all. When you meet her you fall in love with her gentle loving eyes and sweet demeanor. When you realize all she has been through, she inspires you because she has such a lust for life and living. She eats and drinks well and is very active. She does well in the house but you have to keep her close, as occasionally she'll squat to go potty. The upside is not much comes out. She recently began letting her foster know when she wants to go out but she isn't consistent as her bladder is not developed enough to hold it very long.She gets let out about every hour while she is awake. She has worn a diaper in the house at times and will leave it alone when it is on. Zoey is in need of a forever foster as her medical issues will not go away completely. She needs an active family who has other dogs to play with and would love to be someone's best friend and go everywhere with her humans. She needs constant supervision and has daily medication so her family needs to be home more often than not. She has to get monthly check ups at the vet. We would love to find her a home around Green Bay, WI as her doctors are located in that area. White Paws German Shepherd Rescue will take care of all her medical costs and you get the joy of realizing you are making a huge difference in Zoey's life. .

Dear forever family, My name is Hoagie. I am a 60 lb., 1 year old black and tan German Shepherd. I am a puppy at heart in that I love to play with toys, my foster fur brother and human foster sister. My favorite toys are squeaky toys, balls, and sticks. I love to just be with my humans.I love car rides and going places with you. I will allow you to take things out of my mouth and am gentle taking treats. I am completely potty trained and love my crate as it is my safe place. My foster parents taught me how to walk on a leash and basic commands such as sit, down, wait and come. They keep saying I am a very smart boy and have unlimited potential with continued training at home. I am looking for an active family who is experienced with German Shepherds. I still have some puppy energy and need to release my energy on consistent walks and outings. I am jumpy when I see my family after being apart but with consistent training, I can learn to keep four paws on the floor for greetings. I just get so excited I tend to forget my manners. Due to this excitement, I would do best in homes with children that are 7 years or older. I get a long with children very well and I adore my foster sister but kids younger than 7 tend to have a difficult time with my excitement. I have not had contact with feline creatures so I am not sure what I would be like with them. I would love a fur brother or sister to play with as long as they are submissive in nature. I am up to date on all my shots, microchipped, started heart worm and flea preventative and neutered. If you are an active family who wants an energetic pup who is loyal, loving and will be a lifetime companion, I am the one for you. Please fill out an application at the White Paws German Shepherd rescue website. I look forward to meeting you.

Hi My name is Princess Leia. I am a 2 year old white german shepherd from Chicago, IL. I was on the run for months throughout winter and a kind soul finally caught me after several attempts. My previous owner was contacted due to the address attached to my chip number and he denied that I was his dog. White Paws German Shepherd Rescue was contacted and was able to get me transport to my first foster home in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Boy, being on the run has made me skeptical of people but my foster family is showing me that not all humans are bad. I am feeling love, living in a home with other fur siblings and humans and best of all I don't have to search for my food or a warm place to sleep. I can actually sleep soundly with no need to keep one eye open for protection. I never knew life could be this good! I go on these things called walks, can I say AMAZING! It's not that I haven't smelled all the smells of the outside world but being able to share it with my human means so much to me. Thats why I don't mind being on a leash because you are holding the other end of the leash. I also love having a back yard with a fence so I can run around and play with my fur siblings. My favorite human treat is string cheese and I love to cuddle when I feel safe with my humans. I am experiencing something new being in a household and having a family who cares for me. I am slow to accept affection but if you give me time and let me come to you, I will be loyal to you for life. I don't like being crated but am working on it in my foster home. They are teaching me this can be a safe place. This training will help me relax more while my people are away. Upon arrival in Wisconsin, I went for my first vet visit in 8 months. The doctor said he noticed something weird about how my joint is placed in one of my hips. It's not causing me any pain at this point and the doctor doesn't think I need surgery now nor can he predict I will ever need surgery. However, my foster mom and the White Paws family assured me that if I ever need surgery for that hip, they would take care of me. That means if you adopt me and I do end up needing surgery for that hip, you won't have to pay for it. How cool is that? I love the people at White Paws. My foster mom says I am very sweet and need a family environment with another dog who can teach me how to behave in the house. I need humans who will also teach me what they expect from me and more importantly that they will keep me safe. I am spayed, up to date on shots, on heart worm and flea preventative, microchipped, house trained and leash trained. My leaders should be patient but yet take the time to train me. I am a very smart pup and will take your lead. I am good with kids, cats and other dogs. How perfect does that sound? If you want to learn more about me or think you are my perfect family please fill out an application on the website below. I am just looking for love and someone who will keep me safe forever. Could that be you?

White Paws German Shepherd Rescue in Green Bay, Wisconsin has rescued over 1,000 dogs during our lifetime.
In that time, we have rarely needed funds like we do now. Because we take in young, old, and sick dogs with unknown medical conditions it’s a gamble each time we bring in dogs.
