Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Mixed (medium coat). If you're interested in adopting any SGSR dog, please read about our Adoption Process and fill out an Adoption Application. Visit our website for more information, including Frequently Asked Questions. I’m Nika! I am approximately a year old. Currently I’m hanging out with 2 SGSR alums and another SGSR foster (and it’s loads of fun!) but I really want to find my forever home. Like most GSDs, I am very eager to please, but I am still learning how to be the best dog I can be. My foster mom says that I have a heart of gold and just want love and acceptance. I need someone who understands that I am slow to open up, but that I am worth the wait! My foster dad, in particular, has fallen in love with me. Since I am in a home with 3 other dogs, he makes sure I get a quiet moment or two each day with him so that I can learn how special I am. At first I was shy, but now I roll over for tummy rubs whenever we get a little time away from the crew. I have tons of energy so I would do best in an active home with a big yard. Though honestly, I really want to be where everyone else is. I know how to sit very well, and if I think you might have a treat in your hand I do it just in case! I need some more practice on leash, though with a harness I am actually pretty good at it. I am completely housebroken, which foster mom says is fantastic. Though I am quickly learning that this is not okay, I can get a little mouthy. Foster mom tells me that this is not how to communicate with people, so I just need to go to a home where my forever family can continue to work with me on this little habit of mine. In fact, foster mom thinks I would be a great candidate for formal training. She has been working with me while I am here, and says it is a great way to bond with me. I really want to make her happy, she just has to help me understand how! I am the kind of girl that will give you her heart if you give me yours. I hope that I can find my forever home soon. Though I might be a little nervous at first, I settle in quickly and just want to be a part of the family. Interested in giving me the chance I deserve? Let your adoption coordinator know. I’m being fostered in TN. Our adoption process consists of a telephone interview, a call to your veterinarian and a home visit. If you have any questions about the adoption process please contact sgsrescue@gmail.com .

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog. If you're interested in adopting any SGSR dog, please read about our Adoption Process and fill out an Adoption Application. Visit our website for more information, including Frequently Asked Questions. There but by the Grace of God, go I. These are my thoughts as I have prepared to take this precious dog into SGSR. There are some owner surrenders that we cannot wait to get our hands on because we know that they have been mistreated, starved, abused, neglected, etc. But this dog......but this dog...... would have had a long and happy forever life with her Momma, had it not been for life situations that are beyond everyone's control. This woman waited on me to take her girl, because she was committed to giving her to SGSR, because she knew that we would find Roxie the best home that we could. This girl has been well taken care of her whole life. We know her whole life history. When you lose your husband, lose your job, and lose your home, you are not in a good situation to be able to keep your dogs. No harsh words here. This woman has tried. She has waited 6 weeks for us to find a spot in our foster network (we can ALWAYS use more fosters!) Now, on to Roxie's story..... Roxie is a 5 1/2 year old long coated GSD. She has not gotten a lot of exercise lately because she didn't have a yard to play in for the past couple of years. She does have a few pounds to lose. She is good with other dogs, but best with dogs her own size, or a bit smaller. No yappy, hyper dogs should be in the home with her, because she is nervous around them. She loves people, and is a velcro dog that will follow her person everywhere. She doesn't do well around small children, but a child that is 12 or above would work out fine, and she would love a family member who is willing and able to play fetch with her! She does pull on a leash a bit when you first start walking, but this is easily corrected with training. She will not do well around cats. She is fine in the car on rides. She doesn't mind thunderstorms, but does not like fireworks. She hates a crate, but one is not needed, because she is potty trained, and good in the home. She loves to spend time out in the yard. She sits nicely for her food. She is a really easy dog, and doesn't bark much at all. If you are drawn to help this girl who has lost her home, please let your adoption coordinator know or fill out an adoption application at: www.southeastgermanshepherdrescue.com. Roxie is being fostered near Johnson City, TN. Our adoption process consists of a telephone interview, a call to your veterinarian and a home visit. If you have any questions about the adoption process please contact sgsrescue@gmail.com .

Visit our website for more information, including Frequently Asked Questions. Hi there! Bonita is my name and chasing tennis balls is my game! I am a 6 year old, solid black, gorgeous, female GSD. My original owner purchased me from a breeder but had to find me a new home due to financial hardships. I am about 82 lbs and very athletic. I love to go on car rides and walks/runs every opportunity that I get. I’m very protective of my house and will alert to strange noises or people. No cats or small dogs for me but I love to play with medium to large dogs. I would be happy to have older children in my forever home but no young children please...I'm afraid of them. I love to chase (especially tennis balls), toys, cats, squirrels, lights ...just about anything that moves. I have been working on my confidence since I'm a little timid in new situations. Because of this, I prefer to be around older children. I walk very well on a leash and know my commands, even a few in German. I am completely housebroken and love to sleep in my crate or dog bed but I do have a tendency to sneak on the furniture when no one is home...don't tell my foster! I am very energetic and full of life and if you have treats I will be your best friend. Are you my new family? I'm being fostered in Elon, NC!

All you need to do is ask me nicely, I will do anything you want. I am doing better on a leash, I will even come when you call me now. I love to be brushed and will sit patiently while you brush. I will chase a ball until your arm gets tired - most the time I bring it back to you. I've shown interest in a cat, but only because everybody else did. I think I would be okay with a dog savvy cat. My mom can test me, I will do anything for her. I will walk with you, run with you, play ball with you, or lay with you and watch a movie. I will be anything you want me to be.

      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog (medium coat). If you're interested in adopting any SGSR dog, please read about our Adoption Process and fill out an Adoption Application. Visit our website for more information, including Frequently Asked Questions. This is Jake, a six year old Bi colored German Shepherd. He's most likely been an outside penned dog for the majority of his life with little training, although he has come a long way and has transitioned well to indoor life. Jake likes to think that he is an alpha dog with a moderate energy level. When Jake entered the rescue, he was heartworm positive, but has completely recovered with flying colors. Jake has a great disposition as he is very playful, intelligent and curious. He gets along well with his older foster fur sibling but tends to want to be the center of attention. He's not been around cats that we know of but will chase and bark at them if he sees one, or they happen to wander in the yard. He is very food motivated and gets really excited at feeding time and love treats. Jake has been working on his manners and learning the rules of being in the house. Sitting, waiting and shaking before eating. Sitting & waiting to go out and come in from outside and loading in the truck, and some basic obedience training. Jake is now fully housebroken and crate trained, although he doesn't need to be crated. Jake would do best with a family that will develop his unlimited potential. Jake has not been around small children but is a loving dog that does not jump on people or chew on hands. Jake loves to go for walks but needs to learn not to pull on his leash. Jake likes playing with and tearing fuzz off of tennis balls, chewing on large hard bones or Nylabones and will floss his teeth with a pull rope. Jake will also need a fenced yard so he doesn't get out and take himself for a walk. Jake would do best with a submissive male or female dog or as the only dog in the house with people who are willing to help him realize his full potential. Jake is being fostered in Fayetteville, NC. Please contact your adoption coordinator if you think you are a good fit for Jake. Our adoption process consists of a telephone interview, a call to your veterinarian and a home visit.

Visit our website for more information, including Frequently Asked Questions. Meet Turner!! This sweet, handsome, senior will make someone very lucky! Turner is the whole package and has a sweet, easy energy. He is easygoing, fun, loves to be with his family and has excellent house manners. Turner loves attention, but does not demand it. He likes to go for walks, and his foster has taken him on short runs as well. He does okay with children, but would prefer older, calmer children. Photos of Turner do him no justice...he is quite the looker! And he is very affectionate but not slobbery or jumpy. He has done well with other dogs and has even done well with the foster's house cat. Turner was rescued from a neglectful home, and after he joined SGSR, our vet even discovered that he has been shot sometime during his life! But he doesn't let the past get him down...Turner is very grateful for the fresh start and just wants a family to call his own! A bed was recently donated for Turner, and he immediately plopped himself down and just looked so content to have a bed of his own. He is around nine-years-old and is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and heartworm negative. Turner has some mild arthritis, which is typical for his age, but it is well-controlled with an inexpensive joint supplement. We think he is pretty amazing!! :) If you would like to meet Turner, please contact your adoption coordinator. Turner is being fostered in the Knoxville, TN area.

      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog (medium coat). If you're interested in adopting any SGSR dog, please read about our Adoption Process and fill out an Adoption Application. Visit our website for more information, including Frequently Asked Questions. Hello all, my name is Sarge and I'm a 5 yr old male Black & Creme GSD. Let me tell you a little about myself. I came from a shelter in GA. I got surrendered by my owner because you see, he had a Shock Collar on me and his little kids got ahold of the remote and they decided to shock me several of times. It really hurt and now I don't want to wear a collar but yet a harness is fine. They gave me up to the shelter because I didn't want to be around the children anymore. Can you blame me? I'm scared of little kids. I'm okay with older kids. I do have a trust issue because my old family let me down more then once. Just give me a few minutes to come to you and I will want you to scratch my nose. I love that so much. I'm totally a velcro dog. I really love my human/s. I will follow you everywhere you go, so that no one, nor nothing attacks you. I don't need a crate, because I'm fine being left out. I am house broken and will go to the door when I need to go out. I'm okay on a leash. I'm great with both male and female doggies small and large. As I live in house with both. I really like sleeping with my foster Mama and her doggies. And chewies, did I hear that right??? Oh, how I love some chewies. I will sit and be a good boy for a chewy. I do great on car rides. I'm fine with cats. My foster Mama just tells me no, no and will just sit and watch the cat. When she leaves she just shuts the cat up in the room so there is no chasing going on while she is gone. lol. I'm really just a big lover boy who just wants someone to love me. I'm more interested in my human then playing with the other dogs. They are okay from time to time, but it is you humans who I want the most. So me going to a house with no other dogs to play with would be fine, or a dog that I can just chill with would be fine. But if your looking for a big playmate for your doggie, I might not be that boy. If you feel you could be my human please contact your Area Coordinator or fill out an application at www.southeastgermanshepherdrescue.com . I really hope to meet my family soon, so I can spend the upcoming holidays with. I am being fostered in Kingsport, TN. (Disclaimer) What Sarge had on him is NOT what SGSR condones. SGSR does approve use of a stem collar, that is properly introduced with a trainer who can show a family how to use them. But what Sarge went through, was abuse. Our adoption process consists of a telephone interview, a call to your veterinarian and a home visit. If you have any questions about the adoption process please contact sgsrescue@gmail.com .

Not too long ago, I had a litter of 9 beautiful babies. My owner took me and my 9 puppies and surrendered us to a shelter when my babies were only 1 week old. I don't know why and I was very sad and scared. We almost didn't make it. I had given up hope and was so confused because I knew I didn't do anything wrong. My babies and I were within an hour of being euthanized when a miracle happened. We were all saved by the nice people at SGSR. I am just so thankful to know my babies are safe and now I am ready for my new life. My foster mom says I need to tell you some things about me. First, I am house trained; that's a biggie, right? My leash manners are good and I love to play. I am good with other dogs, but would prefer a house with no cats.

      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog (medium coat). If you're interested in adopting any SGSR dog, please read about our Adoption Process and fill out an Adoption Application. Visit our website for more information, including Frequently Asked Questions. Daisey is 7 year old, 80 pound, female GSD. She is good around older children; she likes adults and has no preference between men and women. She likes and has lived peacefully with a cat; and also lives with a small dog. She obeys basic commands (come, sit, stay, crate), and is great companion and watchdog. Someone is typically home with Daisey during the day. Historically she has been home alone, not in her crate, for up to 6 to 7 hours with no issue. She has never damaged anything in our home when left alone. She is crate trained and has been in both a plastic and woven crate with a pad. She sleeps on the floor in our bedroom at night. Daisey is very loyal and protective, and takes her watchdog job very seriously. While this makes her a very good watchdog, it also means that she barks at all humans and animals in her territory or who enter the home. She is skittish around young children, especially toddlers, and will bark and growl if they approach the fence in our yard. Like many Shepherds, she gets anxious when she does not know what is expected of her. She is also scared of thunderstorms. Daisey loves to go on walks and on runs. She has a lot of energy! She likes to fetch balls and sticks and be outside. Otherwise, she likes to be with her human pack. Daisey is being fostered in Winterville, NC! If you're interested in meeting Daisey please contact your adoption coordinator.

Visit our website for more information, including Frequently Asked Questions. Meet Fisher!! If Fisher could talk, we are pretty sure he would be making a living as a stand-up comedian. Fisher is a highly intelligent guy with a wisdom beyond his 6+ dog years. And oh, what a sense of humor!! Fisher can be silly and goofy and he keeps his foster mom constantly entertained with his shenanigans. Foster mom says Fisher keeps her on her toes, but not in a bad way, lol. Fisher is a funny guy!! Fisher survived a whole life of neglect and living in deplorable conditions, but you would never know that now. Fisher is a survivor and despite his tragic past, he still loves people. When I say Fisher loves people... I mean he REALLY loves his people!! Fisher is highly intuitive and we believe he can quickly realize the difference between good people and bad people or ill intentions. Fisher is not aggressive, but he is certainly wary of sketchy people... Fisher also recognizes when someone is good to him. Fisher bonds deeply with people who are good to him, and he will be a fiercely loyal companion for the right person or family. Fisher thrives on companionship!! Due to his intelligence, we believe Fisher will do best with an experienced, confident handler who can truly tap into his potential. We believe Fisher will do great as a family pet, but we also believe that Fisher will bond most deeply with his one, primary person. Fisher absolutely adores his foster mom and is a velcro dog. He recognizes when foster mom is not feeling well and comforts her with kisses and couch cuddles. Fisher looks to his foster mom for guidance and he takes comfort in her presence during a scary thunderstorm. Fisher also loves, loves, loves his toys and he is quite the toy hoarder. Fisher does fantastic with all dogs... big and small, and he is very playful with other dogs. We do think that Fisher would do best in a home with no cats and we also feel he would do best in a home with no young/small children due to his size and silly antics. Fisher made it through his heartworm treatment with flying colors and he is now ready to find his forever person or family. He is a total lovebug who is not destructive in the house, potty trained, rides great in the car and is doing great learning leash manners. Fisher would like to find a person or family who will include him in their life activities and spend time with him... cuddling on the couch, park walks, jogging, hiking, camping or just driving around... whatever you do, he wants to be with you. Fisher is being fostered in Tri-Cities, TN area. If you would like more information about Fisher and his story, please contact your adoption coordinator today!! :) Our adoption process consists of a telephone interview, a call to your veterinarian and a home visit.
