Adoption From CGSR

Why Rescue

German Shepherds, who have not had the best start in life or have been abandoned or found themselves homeless for whatever reason, are much more likely to bond very deeply with their new owner.

German Shepherds, who have lost their family due to bereavement, divorce or total lifestyle change, go through a period of mourning. Despite all the challanges they have come through and the varied backgrounds a rescue dog will repay you with love and kisses.

German Shepherds who have had a hard start, being a stray, chained up or abused soon realise when they are in a safe, loving home, which is why most rescue dogs make extremely affectionate, loving and loyal companions.

If you choose to rescue a German Shepherd as against buying a puppy, you will help towards stopping irresponsible breeders. By rescuing a German Shepherd you will get a devoted, loyal companion for life.

All of the dogs featured are available for adoption to the right home, in order to give each and every one the right to a good home, there are a few basic rules we need to abide by.

If you are seriously considering allowing one of our dogs into your lives please fill out our Homecheck Form, this is the start of what could be a very happy ending for one of our dogs, and with all paws crossed we wish you every luck in having a new addition to your family.
