Rowan is approximately 11 weeks old and is looking for his fur-ever family.  He is making progress with crate and potty training, but still needs further help and is working on basic commands.  Rowan likes to sit and stare up at you with his big brown eyes when he is unsure and wants reassurance or bark for your attention.

While only 11 weeks old, Rowan has exhibited a middle to high activity puppy level and would best be served by a somewhat active family and further training.  Rowan is looking for a family with children over the age of 8.  He has exhibited the ability to live with other dogs, both large and small.  We do not know how Rowan would do with a cat.  He is microchipped and his vaccine series has been started.  Rowan is not yet neutered due to his age.

Rowan is available for adoption for $450.00.  If you would like to apply to adopt Rowan or another rescued GSD, please click here Adoption Application

Rowan is currently being fostered in the Vancouver WA area.

Rowan’s birth story:

My momma, Sage, was brought in as a stray to a shelter on 05/04/2018, pregnant.  Rescue came for her, but she wasn’t able to leave until 05/16/2018.  The nice people from Shepherds Without Borders, begged and begged for momma to get out early and momma tried her best to get the volunteer to let them take her, but, I guess rules are rules.  A volunteer was there early the morning of 05/16 and was waiting for the shelter to open .. but we surprised everyone by arriving sometime the night before/morning of 05/15-05/16.  I was born with 5 other siblings in the shelter.   Sadly, I lost a brother “Lil Bud” shortly after leaving the shelter with that really nice rescue volunteer due to a birth defect at our first vet appointment.  Those nice volunteers cried a lot and they promised that Bud would never be homeless again.

Then, momma Sage welcomed my sister, Daisy, a few hours later!  She was really a surprise!

Within a week our little family of 7 again faced another hardship; kennel cough.  While kennel cough alone is usually not serious, we were just a week-old and not old enough to take the best known antibiotic treatment for kennel cough.  For many weeks and many vet visits, we were all loved and cared for under the eyes of our loving foster family and our attentive momma, Sage.   Momma got a uterine infection and also was treated with antibiotics.  It seemed like we were always going to a vet appointment, but finally all 6 of us puppies and our momma recovered with no known lasting effects.  We grew and were lovingly taken care of by a nice foster family and momma.  The nice people at SWB rescue says we are finally old enough to get a family of our own – that we are ready for adoption <3  Hey, as long as I have someone to hold my leash, I am okay to follow!

Love Rowan
