Lonely GSD in the shelter

You can help us pay for one month of food for a rescued German Shepherd.

Available Dogs

Adopting a German Shepherd Dog is a serious commitment of up to 10-15 years, please consider carefully if this is a commitment you are ready to accept. Our dogs have already had their lives disrupted at least once and we are looking to find them forever homes.

In general, we do not know the background or medical history of dogs we bring into our program.  We cannot guarantee their temperaments, behaviors, or health.  We generally place our program rescue dogs in foster homes so that we can learn more about them in a family situation and observe their behavior.  We base the information we give on each dog on observations while the dog is in our program.  Due to different leadership styles and environmental stimuli in your home, the dog may display different behaviors after it is adopted than what we observed while it was in our program.  Also, just because a dog tests cat- or small dog-tolerant, or has lived in a foster home with cats or small dogs, does NOT mean it will automatically be tolerant of cats or small dogs in the new home, especially if the small pet is running or acting aggressively.  It may take time and supervision while the animals adjust.

NOTE: All of our dogs are spayed or neutered as required of all California shelters and rescues by the California Food & Agriculture Code Section 30503.  They are also current on all their vaccines and microchipped prior to adoption.

We do not guaranteed that animals seen on our website will be available at our adoption events. We do not reserve dogs for adoption by telephone or email. You MUST first submit an application to GSGSR.

Don't forget to check the Private Party Dogs page, and search Petharbor for German Shepherd Dogs that are in your local Shelters.
