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. Some have been dumped in shelters, found roaming the streets, neglected, abused or simply need a new home due to the loss of a beloved owner.

We make every effort to match our rescue dogs with the best possible and compatible forever homes. 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, 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.

ELLE

Our darling Elle is still looking for her perfect match. Elle adores kids, thinks cats are a bit too much fun, but is scared of other dogs.

She will need a calm confident owner who has experience with reactive dogs, and/or has the patience and willingness to work with Elle on this.

She is beautifully behaved at home. This is important because this little pocket rocket can clear fences over 6ft.

This means she must be left inside if you need to leave her alone. If you leave her alone in the backyard she will jump the fence to find you.

Elle is foster to adopt, which means you can take as much time as you need to work out whether she is the one for your family, and whether your family is the one for her.

Apply at http://gsdrescuesa.com.au/adoptionapplication.html. Already applied for another dog, but think Elle might be your girl? No problems, just PM us or email our adoptions team at adopt@gsdrescuesa.com.au

HANS - NOW ON TRIAL

Hans is a beautiful 12 month old pup who has basic training. He deserves a loving home with lots of cuddles as he is just beautiful in nature - a happy and fun loving dog.

Hans was hit by a car and his serious leg injury has been successfully treated by a vet at Marion Animal Hospital. A plate in his leg will need to be removed at some stage but does not bother him or hinder him in any way.

He still has six physiotherapy appointments left to go. He needs to go back to MAH for these as his needs are known there and he has a relationship with his vet.

The most important thing with Hans is having someone to supervise the amount of exercise he has at the moment.

He shows no interest in other dogs and is not generally reactive unless the other dog is highly strung.

He has met children and is fine but due to his age and bouncyness some training may be needed with very small children.

Hans is desexed and his vaccinations are up to date.

MINI COOPER

Mini Cooper is 2 years old, a smaller and very active boy GSD.

He is desexed and fully vaccinated.

He needs exercise, activity and lots of it.

If you have some fitness goals for 2018, we're pretty sure he could help you with them.

Cooper can clear 6 ft fences with no problem, so he will need to be with you or inside when you are away.

Cooper is currently in Queensland. Would you be happy for us to bring him to South Australia so you can give him a forever home?

If you have previously applied to adopt one of our dogs, please phone or email us to let us know you would like to give Cooper a home.

CASPER

Fancy a trip to Queensland? Or maybe you have friends in the north looking for their new best friend. Tag, share, apply to adopt him yourself. This beautiful 4-year-old boy, who will come fully trained, deserves no less.

Casper is around 4 years old, is desexed and fully vaccinated.

His adoption fee will be $1200. Fully trained obedience dogs cost far more than $1200 and we do not believe that rescue dogs should be devalued.

So to find out more about Casper please email qldadmin@gsdsinneed.com.au

To see the level to which he will be trained visit the K9 Masterclass website at http://www.k9masterclass.com.au or their Facebook page.

The handover will be done by Scott Donald who we consider to be one of Australia's leading dog trainers.

This is a wonderful opportunity for Casper and for you to have a professionally trained dog as your family companion.
