Long Haired German Shepherd Rescue
Long Haired German Shepherd Rescue is an organization comprised of a network of rescue volunteers throughout the US and Canada. We are dedicated to finding good homes and matching Long Coated German Shepherds in need with loving people that will treat their dog as part of their family. Our mission is to identify and place homeless Long Haired German Shepherds into loving and permanent homes, to educate the public about the breed, promote responsible pet care, and to provide ongoing behavioral and training advice to our adopters after our dogs have been placed in their new homes. Long Haired German Shepherd Rescue is an adoption service and foster home based organization working with many different rescue groups and shelters to identify the breed and facilitate the adoption of the Long Haired German Shepherd dog. We do not operate a shelter, but work with shelters as well as private individuals to help raise awareness and place Long Haired German Shepherds in need. Some dogs are in foster care while others may still be in shelters desperately needing to get out.
For foster dogs: The temperment and behavior of each dog is carefully evaluated while they are in foster care so that we can match each dog with a home best suited to meet their particular needs. Dogs are also taught good house manners, given basic obedience skills, and socialized while in foster care.
For shelter dogs: The temperment and behavior of each dog is carefully evaluated if possible and as much information as we can provide is listed for the potential adopter.
Adopting a companion.
Adoption processes will vary with different Rescue groups but generally include a thorough application submission, including vet reference, personal references and a home visit prior to placing any dog. Most of the dogs available for adoption and posted on our site are older puppies and adults. All of our dogs avaiable through rescue and posted on this site are current on vaccinations, treated for external and internal parasites, heartworm "tested" negative and on preventative, and all are spayed or neutered prior to placement in their new homes. Young puppies are occasionally available for adoption, and will be adopted under a strictly enforced spay/neuter contract unless pediatric sterilization services are available in the foster homes' area (preferrable). Please be aware that adopting a dog is a lifetime commitment. One we take very seriously.
