#522 – Leroy

Look at this sweet boy! This wonderful guy has been with us almost 4 years. He enjoys his walks by the river or just around the woods or just loves to play in the yard and chase the bunnies and squirrels. He had a clean bill of health at the vet so we are happy with that. As you can see he is quite the Velcro dog, always at my side 24/7. He’s a biggest mama’s boy! I work from home so this helps with his separation anxiety.  He truly is the best, and we are so happy that he is with us and...

#517 Spirit

It’s hard to believe that this sweet girl was left at a high-kill shelter two years ago.  Lucky for Spirit an all breed rescue saw her just before her time was up and got her out of there.  The all breed rescue were immediately impressed with her friendly nature and decided she would have her best chance to find a forever home if she could be where people would look for a German Shepherd specifically.   Spirit was adopted two years ago today on June 8, 2019 by a young couple who fell in...

#515 Sasha

Today we received this update about Sasha, who was adopted 2 years ago at age 10.  We love seeing this happy, loved 12 year old living her BEST life! ♥️🐾.  It was exactly two years ago when we received the call from a shelter about a 10 year old senior female named Sasha, we were torn between wanting to help her and knowing how hard it is to find an adopter who will give an older dog another chance at life.  When we heard her story, though, we couldn’t pass her by,...

#509 Jackson

“Here is a photo of Jackson, with his housemate Jolene. Jackson did a cross country RV trip with us last year, and this was at a friend’s home in Oregon.  The friend took this photo of the dogs and submitted it to their local news station and the dogs made the news!”

#494 Riley

Update on 05/01/2018 Riley passed her puppy AKC test, and is starting a 6 week course for her manners training this week. Adopted on 3/25/2018 Bio Riley came to GSRNE after her first family realized that, given their already very busy lives, caring for a young puppy was too much work. Four-month old Riley, however, immediately found a home with her foster family and her brother, Ramble, another GSRNE rescue. Riley is energetic, playful, and ready for anything—a game of fetch, a car ride,...

#493 Oliver

Oliver was adopted by Ranu and Lindsey and their family in 2018 when he was about two years old.  When their last dog died, they thought about taking a break from dogs for a while---that lasted about a month when they decided their house really was too empty without a dog. Ranu had had a German Shepherd mix earlier in life, and he loved that loyal and loving nature of German Shepherds, so he began searching the web to look for another.  Oliver was the second dog he saw and luck was on his...

#485 Hans

I should have contacted you folks earlier than this . Time does have a way of going bye doesn’t it. I hope your all doing well and keeping up the good works that you do. So many good dogs and people out there still need to connect. Is it me or are a lot of people looking for that great companionship that only a good dog can bring. I hear a lot of friends and family up here looking for a dog to bring into their home. Their finally seeing what we’ve known all along. And of course nothing...

#478 Chance

Update on 8/29/2017: I think we just passed the 3 month mark with Chance and he's become such an integral part of our lives, we can't remember what things were like without him.  He has gotten better being around men and boys and he is devoted to our boys, who cherish him.  Our younger son, Sam, has even taught him new trick - High 5. We have settled into a routine with a couple daily walks, play time outside with his beloved Jolly Ball, and hang out time with us.  We've gone to the local...
