Check out our available dogs, then apply to adopt. 

If you need to surrender your dog then please send an email with pictures, age, sex, and temperament of the dog to

GHGSDR Shepherds mostly come from animal shelters where they are awaiting euthanasia. All of these Shepherd Dogs need loving, forever homes and families to call their own. We have several GSDs available for adoption and we regularly take in more Shepherds under our wings and into our Rescue Program, increasing the numbers of dogs available for adoption.

Also be sure to check us out on Facebook as well.
