See below. Also, instead of contacting a no-kill rescue agency, you may want to see your local county's animal shelter, as MANY German Shepherds are in each one! You can go to your local shelter and bring your buddy home- at my shelter, most of the dogs are shepherds. :)

Answer

Go online to: www.google.com

TYPE IN: Rescue organizations for German Shepherds

There is a great list for all different types of dog breeds. You are going down the right path with this one and not contacting the ASPCA. Certain breeds need special treatment to get them back to the good shape they started out with.

Good luck

Answer

Best way to find a reputable rescue is to go to the National club for the breed. In this case, go to the website for the German Shepard Dog Club of America at: http://www.gsdca.org/base/index.php

Scroll down and click on "Breed Rescue" on the left side. This will give you regional and state rescue groups that are safe and reputable. (There are people out there who call themselves a "rescue" that will take a dog and just use him/her for breeding, or sell the dog without first neutering or spaying. Finding a rescue through a breed club helps avoid those types of people.) Also, if you can find your local "breed club" (people who show in AKC shows and breed professionally) they are also usually active in rescue of their breed. The above responder was right -- you are doing the best thing for your dog and for the future owner by going through a reputable rescue group.

German Shepherd puppies are available from a large number of specialized breeders. It may however be preferable to contact a rescue centre or animal housing charity. Local vets can often offer good advice on finding a pet.

Search for German shepherd dog rescue organizations in your area. These rescue centers give shelter to lost, unwanted and abused German shepherds and their goal is to get the dogs to permanent homes where they will receive proper love and care.

A rescue dog would be the least expensive. Be wary of anyone selling cheap German Shepherds. There's always a chance they are puppy mill dogs. If you really want one, visit your local shelter or contact the nearest German Shepherd Rescue organisation. People often buy a Shepherd without researching what the breed is like. They quickly find they can't handle the dog, or can't offer it the stimulation it needs and dump the poor animal.

Your German Shepherd could be a police dog, a drugs and explosives detector, a guard, a rescue dog, a sheep dog, etc... That dog is the third more intelligent dog in the world.

A German Shepherd dog can be used for many purposes, including rescue work and helping the handicapped by being a guide or therapy dog. The work any dog does depends on the training it receives.
