*** ADOPTED **** – Miss Halcie <3

Celebrating the new year and first adoption of 2019 with our 50th dog rescued – Miss Halcie has found her furever family!!  HAPPY FUREVER Halcie and family <3 M<3


Halcie is hoping for her forever home to spend this and every holiday forward with – could that be you?


Halcie has been in foster care a little longer than most of our SWB dogs and has been on hold as we explored her growth, development and movement.

While Halcie had x-rays that showed her hips were magnificent, her movement was a bit “loose”.  We recently discovered a new option to explore with possible treatment options are anxious to find her a new family so SWB get put this plan into place.

Are you interested in welcoming this girl to your home?  Halcie is housebroken and crate trained.  She is approximately 10 months old.  She would benefit from a GSD savvy home and some training, as most GSDs do!  She is smart, spunky and loves to be on the go!

Halcie is spayed, microchipped and up to date on vaccines.  She is an active girl that enjoys mental and physical stimulation.  Halcie is HW negative.  Halcie has exhibited the ability to live with other dogs.  She has been swimming, herding, hiking and done other activities that she would love to continue!

A foster home consists of providing a safe loving home; SWB pays for her medical care and food.  Please let us know by filling out a foster or adoption application here:  Applications

Shepherds Without Borders believes in standing behind their dogs medically.  It was no secret that Halcie most likely had physical deficits related to obvious nutritional and exercise deficits in her previous “life”; she was fur and bones when she came to SWB.  Those circumstances, combined with some structural angulation and growing quickly, she was not the most coordinated puppy and seemed to have times she just went overboard with activity.  As she has grown and filled out, we have seen improvement, but the question came to mind as to whether there was more we could be doing to help her improve or if there was further information we could gain by investigating this more thoroughly.

Halcie is currently on supplements, getting a great diet, being socialized and continuing to learn lots of manners and lessons from her foster family, as well as visiting vet specialists in the area.  We hope to have more information about this in the near future and, with some luck, a clean bill of health!  Stay Tuned!


Celebrating our 50th rescue “Halcie”.

Miss Halcie is still looking for her perfect forever family ❤ Halcie is approximately 6 months old. She is a spunky spirited girl who would benefit from an active adopter that has previous GSD experience. Her sweet quizzical personality is always ready for the next adventure!  Halcie would do best with children over 5 years old.

Halcie is spayed, microchipped, UTD on vaccines and currently being fostered in the Washington area and is available to adopt for a donation of $350.00. To apply to adopt Halcie click here Adoption Application

Miss Halcie’s rescue story

It is pretty hard to understand how this little cutie was running around as a stray and ended up in a high intake shelter at only 4-5 months old.  Halcie is UTD on shots, microchipped and was previously spayed at the shelter.  She is crate trained, housebroken and loves people of all ages. Halcie has exhibited the ability to get along with other dogs and cats. She loves to play ball and already knows to SIT
