Sadly there are dozens whom we can not save in time and they meet their end via the needle having spent their final days in concrete and steel cages.

All my dogs have been rescues, and will continue to be so. For the casual pet owner, escpcailly a first time GSD owner I think adopting an older puppy or adult dog from a rescue can be a great was to introduce yourself to the breed and gain experiance. Most the dogs that come through our doors are a year or more old and one can get a really good feel for their personalities and temperments. We match over 300 GSD's a year with suitable homes.

Forsomebody who is looking for a dog who will strictly be a family pet, I think that going to a rescue and choosing the GSD that fits your particular lifestyle is a viable means of aquiring a dog.

The is my rescue girl, I adopted her at 6 months of age and she's been the best dog I've ever owned.



I can't agree MORE, Road Dog! With the exception of my first Shep, who was given to me by my grandmother lo these many many years ago, all of my Sheps have been rescues - usually as adults - and they were all perfect

Dakota really looks like a gem!! I also love german shepherds, their loyalty, seriousness in doing certain tasks but can also be loving and a little playful too. I just got a dog, she is a bit still of a mystery- small at 20 lbs but it looks like she may have some shepherd in her, mixed with some type of small dog, and maybe sheltie or border collie. I had to take her to the vet for a bath today and someone there said she reminds them of having gsd in her. Im thinking that's what I was thinking, although she definately has a good amount of some type of collie dog, there';s something very gsd about her- the vet said that's possible, seems odd to me, but hey, still possible!
