#220 Riley II

Riley II GSRNE #220 Adopted   Riley is a grand guy....He settled in quite fast, met friends and a few of their dogs without any real problems. He has his bed in our bedroom and a blanket in the living room...seems he loves the warmth from the wood stove last winter. Riley stays with me in the yard, but does sneak off now and then through the wood about 150 feet to the neighbors house to play with Jack their black lab, then they both come back ....wanting cookies! His first camping trip was...

#172 Leo

Leo (was Micah) GSRNE #172 Adopted in February 2005 In 2002 we lost our 7-year old Shepherd, Keisar, to Bloat which affects many large breed dogs. I remember crying for months and thinking I could never have a dog again. After about a year we started thinking about getting another Shepherd. I talked to my husband, and we both agreed to get another dog. My friend told me to check out the German Shepherd Rescue website and I did. I called them and was informed that we could not adopt a dog...

#136 Tiki

Tiki GSRNE #136 Adopted on January 17, 2003   My husband and I have recently adopted a wonderful dog named Tiki. We had looked into adoption from GSRNE after losing the second of our two beloved dogs (one a German Shepherd mix and the other a German Shepherd) last summer. We both love the breed but also really liked the idea of adopting a dog that needed a home so GSRNE was the perfect answer! We were very excited when the call came and arrangements were made to visit a dog that was a...

#130 Wren

Wren GSRNE #130 Adopted on July 29, 2002 I adopted Wren in August and it was HOT! Wren decided she liked her air conditioned rooms and would only go out quickly and then wanted back into the lovely cool air. She loves the air-conditioned rooms and I love to spoil her. Wren and I go out for our walks every night, play in doors with her toys and we go for coffee at night. She just loves to go for rides. Wren and my dad are getting along so well! Dad loves to have her around...he calls her his...

#118 Buddy

Buddy GSRNE #118 Adopted in January 2002 Buddy is generally doing well. He is slowing down a bit (he’s 11-12 yrs. old), and has some arthritis in his hips. We are giving him Glyco-flex III (glucosamine) and it seems to help. We also take him for at least 4 walks a day.. Buddy loves his toys and will play for hours with us. We don’t toss things as far as we used to, but he will chase his “squeaky” toys and bring them back to us to throw again. Buddy sleeps with us on our queen-sized bed and...

#116 Nyla-Jean

Nyla-Jean GSRNE #116 Adopted in October, 2001    When we met Nyla, we were looking for a white Shepherd to fill a huge void, left when we lost our beloved Cain, a White GSD my husband had found in a pound. When we adopted him, 2 year old Cain was only hours away from being euthanized. He was with us for 9 years, and we lost him when he was 11. Nyla had spent most of her life in a backyard, suffering from constant ear infections and flea allergies, and she was pathetically underweight....

#108 Kizzy

Kizzy (was Inca) GSRNE #108 Adopted    This is the story of one of our placements, Inca (renamed Kizzy), with her handler/owner Cil! Inca was found at a local pound. As a dark-colored dog, many people who might have adopted Kizzy were intimated by her and therefore weren't interested. It's kind of funny, because she's incredibly friendly and playful, but this happens sometimes. The shelter manager knows a good dog when she sees one, and we were thrilled to take this dog in. Sarah S....

#090 Sheba

Sheba was turned into GSRNE from an all breed rescue that didn't focus on GSD's. Sheba had suffered horrific abuse and needed someone to trust and teach her about the world. When she arrived, she was full of fear and distrust. Sheba was placed into a special foster home that was used to dealing with behavioral problems and issues. In time, using love and tenderness, Sheba learned about rules and how to "win". She was able to romp with other dogs and take her time learning about humans....
