Is there room in your heart and home for one of our dogs?

There is no greater gift you can give a German Shepherd than your love and loyalty for a lifetime. They will give you nothing less in return.

Adopting a German Shepherd is a lifetime commitment. Each rescue dog has his or her own story, history, and issues.

While sometimes we have rescue dogs who have been loved all their lives and simply need a new home due to the loss of a beloved owner, most have not been so lucky. Some dogs have had an unhappy past - dumped in shelters, found roaming the streets, neglected or abused. Most are in need of additional training and many are reactive to other dogs due to inadequate or non-existent socialisation. Most of these dogs need an experienced handler.

Please be aware that if you have very small children and other pets, it may be difficult for us to match a rescue dog to your needs, although some dogs have lived with a cat.

We make every effort to match our rescue dogs with the best possible and compatible forever homes where they are able to reach their full potential. To help ensure a successful placement, we work with our applicants and adopters to answer questions before, during, and after each adoption. If you are reluctant to keep your dog during good times and bad, during household moves, holidays or family changes, our rescue dogs are not for you.

If you are ready to open your home and heart to one of our beautiful dogs and to give them their very own "happy ever after home", please fill out and submit our Adoption Application Form here.

If one of our dogs is a match for your situation, we will contact you for a property inspection prior to arranging a meet with you and our rescue dog.


Ladies and gentlemen, allow us to introduce the fantastic Mr. Fox.

Fox is a beautiful, bouncy, approx. 5-year-old boy with impaired vision.

Originally named Ace, Fox was found wandering the streets, and ended up with the awesome people at the South East Animal Welfare League Mount Gambier.

Unable to find him a home in Mount Gambier, SEAWL contacted us and so, yesterday, one of our volunteers made the trek to collect him.

After travelling over 400km, he arrived in his new city with a new name.

Our Mr. Fox is looking for a dog-free foster family or forever family who will provide him with the love and support to live life to the full.

Could that be you or someone you know?

Ranger was found on the streets and is currently very thin and in need of plenty of good food.

Whatever his experiences have been, they don't seem to have damaged his opinion of humans.

Like Aidan, Ranger loves people!

Ranger is not suited to a home with cats but may be able to live with another dog after proper introduction.

Ranger has some basic obedience and will need a family committed to his ongoing training.

Pippa is a cheerful, loving, and fun dog.

She loves every human she meets and loves feeling part of a pack.

She enjoys walks, chasing sticks, playing at the beach and lots of cuddles.

She has always been an inside dog and feels most secure inside with her family, especially at night, but loves time outside for play time.

She cannot live with a cat and would suit older kids.

She is such a beautiful loving companion and deserves a special home, where she can be given lots of attention and time.

Radar is a handsome two year old boy.

He is desexed, microchipped and his vaccinations are up to date.

He has had very little stability in his short life.

Radar has lived with toddlers and was well-behaved with them.

He responds well to 'shake', 'sit', 'drop' and 'stay'.

He is young and impulsive and needs an owner who can establish boundaries for him.

With further training Radar will make someone a wonderful friend.
