posted 02/27/15: 3 yr old Shepherds from Belfield, ND area, for adoption
Rayna and Bentley
Sarah: "I write this email with a very heavy heart. We have 2 amazing 3 year old German Shepherds. Our neutered male Bentley and our unspayed female Rayna. Both incredible loving family members. Our son is a year old now and with every option and precaution we have taken leading up to this, has severe asthma and allergies to the dogs. Our dogs were our lives. They have slowly been confined to smaller spaces to now primarily outside, in proper conditions. It's just not fair. Rayna is very mellow and loving. Bentley has definitely become more high strung and full of energy, but equally loving. Both crave that family bond and attention again, but this last stay at the hospital with my son was too close. We have to do what is best for all of us. It KILLS us and absolutely breaks my heart. It's not a priority to stay together. We just need what's best for our fur babies :'( "
Bentley will fetch a ball until our arm would fall off as well as LOVES pulling our daughter in her sled. Rayna not so much. She prefers a quick min and will often be greedy about the ball and then go lay down with it. Both have been a clean bill of health! Bentley has always gotten along with other dogs and although Rayna and Bentley are companions, I would say Rayna would do better with slow introduction. She is VERY protective of us and obviously saw other dogs as a threat. Both are great with cats. Sometimes, Bentley will try playing with our Big Tom cat, but with a snap of our fingers, he stops. Oh one thing I should mention about Bentley also is that he is not fond of fireworks/gun fire.

We are a virtual Shepherd rescue (do not house dogs here, only post them on the website). We help match people by keeping a list of people who are looking for an adult Shepherd and people who can no longer care for theirs for one reason or another. If you are either of these, please call 701-850-5657 or email email@example.com
We are also looking for foster homes, people willing to house and care for a GSD until a forever home can be found.
