There are sometimes GSDs out there that GSRNE does not have in
our own program (usually because we are full and cannot take it for further
evaluation, or the dog is in a shelter and we have not been able to see the dog
yet), but we are aware of their plights and want to help them by telling people
like you about them. If a dog is at a shelter and you want more information
about it, please call the appropriate shelter.
We have not temperament tested or evaluated
the dogs in this list. Some of these dogs often only have a week or two to live,
due to overcrowding at shelters.
If you are interested in one, please call about these dogs right away, and
please mention that you saw info about the dog on the GSRNE web site. Thanks!
Note: ALWAYS call first and ask if a shelter dog is still available, too.
Shelters often do not update us when dogs are adopted or euthanized, we have to
keep pinging them. So listings here can be a few days out of date, until we find
out the dog is adopted or euthanized.
Please let the
shelter know you saw
the dog on GSRNE's website.
If you adopt a dog that you saw here,
are dogs we wish we could help and it would be wonderful to know their story
of what happened to them.
to share your story with us!
love to hear from you!
UPDATE ON NAKITA
Nakita was a dog in
urgent need of a home and we're so happy to hear she found it! Her new mom
Kaleigh told us,
"My boyfriend and I adopted Nakita December
31- from the Animal Rescue League of Greater Portland. She is the sweetest
girl and I can't imagine waking up without her excited greeting every
morning now. She is doing awesome in training and loves to play ball! It
is rare that we go for a walk when she does not get some sort of compliment,
she is great with people and seems to have just been in the wrong situation
before. (She was actually laying on her back recently letting a lady we met
walking scratch her belly in the middle of the sidewalk!)
She is also a great nap buddy, she will
sleep under a blanket with you and even use a pillow! Thank you for posting
her story to your site- that is where we first saw her on Christmas morning.
It did not take long for us to decide to go meet her and we took her home
the next day.
She is so smart- always knows and
understands everything you say. Nakita would probably eat carrots for every
meal if we let her, she also loves her kong with mashed bananas and treats!"
Animal Rescue League of Boston
Bridget is a gorgeous and very playful 1
year old female German Shep. mix about 70lbs. She found her way to the Animal
Rescue League of Boston because her owner could not provide for her energy. She
is very sweet and affectionate and knows some basic cues such as sit, down, give
paw and responds very well to all of them. She continues to learn more cues and
tricks through our shelter classes. Like to go into a crate and stay and come
when called. Bridget enjoys playing with other dogs during our daily playgroups
and also enjoys some quiet time in an office while chewing on a bone. She is a
staff favorite and we know for sure that she will steal your heart too! She
lived with children in her previous home but needs a home without cats or small
animals. If you're looking for a young and fun companion to love then she is
your girl so come in and meet her - we promise she'll be happy to see you!!
