Cyrus is a handsome and super sweet, sable, male German Shepherd Dog. He is approximately 10 years old and weighs around 70 pounds. He is in great shape for a senior dog and is active with a low-moderate energy level. He is crate-trained and housebroken. He is good with kids and other dogs but has not been cat-tested.

ADOPTION: Training (for both the dog and the family) increases the probability of a successful adoption. We feel strongly that training is an essential part of responsible dog ownership and we now require training for every dog placed through the MTGSR program.

Cyrus' total adoption cost is $250 which includes the $125 adoption fee (reduced senior dog adoption fee) and a reduced training fee  (payable to the trainer) of $125 due at the time of adoption.  

For the adoption fee, the dog will be spayed/neutered, current on all vaccinations, current on heartworm/flea-tick preventatives and microchipped. 

The training fee will include a plan tailored to that specific dog and that dog's needs (obedience training, behavior modification, etc.).

PLEASE NOTE: Our philosophy is “Rescue locally, place locally” which means we primarily pull dogs from shelters in the Nashville area AND we prefer to place our dogs in homes within a one-hour drive of Nashville. If you are outside of the Nashville area, please consider adopting a homeless dog in your local community.
