We will absolutely only be working with rescue partners and animals controls. We will not be taking direct owner give-ups. As we have posted time and time again, over 33% of owner give ups have to be euthanized for intolerable behaviors...owner's lie to skirt their responsibilities to do what is right. We almost never have to euthanize a dog that has been recommended for rescue by our colleagues, unless a health issue becomes untreatable and the animal is suffering. We have amazing rescue friends and consider them family. If you have a dog to relinquish, contact your local animal control or rescue group for an animal evaluation and refer them to us. I cannot guarantee if we would have an opening at that time, but we have excellent outcomes from animals referred to us by our rescue partners.
Please fill out an application and let us know what type of lifestyle you lead and what personality you are looking for in your German Shepherd.
With decades of experience with animals of all types, especially dogs, and decades of German Shepherd Dog behavior and health rehabilitation, we are happy to provide tips on how to mend your relationship with your pet. This advice is usually individualized to the situation and takes time to address. It is most appreciated that you respect our effort, experience, and time and provide a donation to the rescue in return for some useful advice.
