Aria was probably chained in a backyard considering that she grew into her collar, which had to be surgically removed.  Also, she is missing a toe.  She seems undaunted by all this misfortune and neglect. She acts like a puppy, full of energy and eager to explore her surroundings. She is especially interested in squirrels, rabbits, and other prey (possibly also cats).  She walks with other dogs with no negative interaction, seemingly only interested in exploring her environment.  She doesn’t bark on walks and is obedient on leash. Aria does not respond to basic commands like sit, though Aria is very intelligent and will learn very quickly.  Aria is below average in size and has an athletic build.   She is the epitome of the German Shepherd Dog (GSD).  She is kind but aloof, respectful and obedient of people, loves to chase when permitted, and smart and energetic.  She would benefit from an owner who can give her lots of exercise (at least once daily).  Aria would love to bond with you.  She would be loyal and so appreciative to have you love her and treat her with respect and dignity.

If you are interested in meeting this dog, please fill out our online application first.  Contact us via email at  The minimum adoption donation ranges from $300 to $400. 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. Prior to placement, all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are usually microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis. Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
