Jack came into the rescue with his sister when a neighbor noticed them chained in the front yard, clearly ill. The puppies had parvovirus and needed emergency veterinary care, so Idaho German Shepherd Rescue stepped in to help. Jack spent almost two weeks at the vet, and during that time one of his vet techs fell in love with him. After Jack recovered, the rest of the family got to meet him and Jack found his forever home!
Jill came into the rescue with her brother when a neighbor noticed them chained in the front yard, clearly ill. The puppies had parvovirus and needed emergency veterinary care, so Idaho German Shepherd Rescue stepped in to help. We were looking for a family for Jill that could keep this energetic girl active and entertained, and found the perfect fit with a family with three kids, two other dogs, and a fully fenced acre. Jill can now play and chase tennis balls to her heart's content!
Braveheart spent almost ONE YEAR at a shelter in California before Idaho German Shepherd Rescue stepped in. This 6 year old guy was a favorite with the shelter volunteers, loved every dog he met, and just had an easy-going attitude about life so we knew he needed a second chance. Braveheart found his forever family just four days after making the trip to Idaho (one day shy of a year since entering the shelter). He has a doggie brother, two human siblings, gets to go on two walks a day, and has a comfortable bed to call his own.
Oz came to us at 9 months old when his owners planned on surrendering him to Downey Shelter in California because they just couldn't keep him anymore. A few kind people stepped in and, with the help of Miracle GSD Network, helped Oz find his way to Idaho. Oz found a great home with a couple who had lost their pup the year before and were looking for a new dog to shower with love and affection. Oz loves to play ball and go on walks around the neighborhood.
Baron is a gorgeous 9 month old GSD male who was surrendered to the shelter for digging in the yard. He was on the euthanasia list at a small shelter in California when he found his way to Idaho German Shepherd Rescue. He went into foster with a couple who had been looking for a companion for their 2 year old German Shepherd female, and the two hit it off beautifully. He now has a long and happy life ahead of him!
McKnee is a gorgeous 3 year old male GSD, with stunning amber eyes, who found himself abandoned by his owner at Downey Shelter in California. The stress of the kennel environment caused McKnee to completely shut down, hiding in the back of his kennel and growling when shelter workers tried to approach him. Because of this, McKnee was only given 48 hours to live. After joining Idaho German Shepherd Rescue, McKnee got to spend time with Veteran K-9 Training, and he started learning to trust again. His adopters fell in love with him and did their due diligence with two meet-and-greets with their other dogs and a trial run in their home. They are helping McKnee, now Zeke, be the dog he was meant to be with a loving and active home!
Zarah is a sweet and energetic 6 year old female German Shepherd, who found her forever home with her foster mom! Zarah's previous owners were forced to find her a new home due to their newborn son's severe allergies. Before she joined that family, Zarah had been abandoned on the side of a highway. We took Zarah in and after a few months, her foster mom knew that Zarah's home would be with her. Zarah's new mom works from home so Zarah gets to spend unlimited amounts of time playing ball in the backyard, and enjoying the company of her family.
Violet is a beautiful 2 year old female who entered the Sacramento shelter as a stray with her puppies. She had fly strikes on her ears, so she probably lived outside, and she was very uncertain and fearful of the normal sights and sounds of a home when she first joined us. She spent a few weeks in a foster, where her personality and playful side started to come through, but as soon as she joined her new family she really started to shine. She has a new doggie brother she loves to play with, and has discovered the comforts of a dog bed all her own. We're so happy for Miss Violet and her new family!
Loba is a 12 year old gal who was left at the Downey Shelter in California by her family when they moved. She developed an upper respiratory infection, putting her at risk, so Idaho German Shepherd Rescue stepped in to get her to the vet and then to Idaho. She is the absolute sweetest girl you'll ever meet and everyone who met her while she was with the rescue just fell in love. Loba found her forever home with a wonderful new mom who has another rescue German Shepherd, and a whole bunch of ferrets! Loba, now Lola, settled right in and has an amazing new home to call her own.
