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. 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 carry out a property inspection prior to arranging a meet with you and our rescue dog. It is not a 'first come first served' situation - we go through all current applicants on our waiting list to find the very best match for each dog. Please note that some of our dogs are able to be matched to adopters already on our database, so please register your application with us.

Adopt a German Shepherd dog

MILO - MEET PENDING

Want a friendly new companion? Meet Milo.

Milo is nine years old, is desexed, microchipped and his vaccinations are up to date.

His owners are working very long hours away from home and Milo started barking in the backyard.

He is now being left inside the house, so no more barking, but his owner feels he would be better off in a home where he has company most of the time.

He currently lives with a five year old child and is affectionate and gentle with her.

A home with no other dog, cat or small children would suit Milo.
