The following German Shepherds
and German Shepherd mixes are being fostered by other rescue groups or individuals in the Sacramento
area. I have not seen or evaluated most of these dogs, so
I can not guarantee their temperament or health. However, because rescue groups such as
mine or individuals rescuing on their own are offering these dogs
for adoption, I am posting these dogs as a courtesy to those rescuers. As
with rescuing a dog from GSRSV, you will also have the benefit of knowing the
temperament from its foster caretaker.
Please contact the
individual or group name listed with a particular dog for more information
about that dog! If you find that a dog that is listed here is no
longer available for adoption, please let me know so I can remove the
listing. Contact Brian at either 916-655-3125 or email@example.com
an approx 7-mos old spayed female GSD who
is a playful puppy with a sensitive side. Millie was named after the
rural sugar mill where she was dumped as a wee pup. A Good
Samaritan found her and brought her to us. She was painfully thin and
had a skin condition that resulted in loss of hair and painful
Millie has thrived in her foster home under the care of her foster
mom, a big sis border collie and two house cats. Her skin condition
has been treated and she now has a gorgeous shiny black coat. She is
at a normal healthy weight--about 50 lbs. Millie is up to date on all
vaccines and micro-chipped.
Millie is crate trained and sleeps in her crate at night. She is
working on house training and basic commands. Because of Millie's
attachment to her canine sister and foster mom, we are seeking a home
for her with another friendly canine companion or stay at home human.
Our adoption process includes: application, meet and greet, home
safety check, adoption contract and fee. Please contact 4 R Friends

is a strikingly-marked 10-month-old neutered male GSD mix who is very
active and affectionate. Aaron will benefit from a home where he can
get plenty of daily exercise for both his mind and body. A Basic
Manners class is highly recommended to help him channel some of his
energy into learning polite ways to seek attention, food, and other
doggie life rewards! After Basic Manners is under his belt, Aaron may
be a good candidate for doggie sports such as agility or Treibball
where he can have a wonderful outlet for his playful zest and
all that busy movement, Aaron is a very sweet, sensitive dog who will
repay the love and attention given to him a thousandfold.

weighs 59 pounds.

"Chloe" is an approx 1-yr old female GSD mix with a
very sweet disposition but who is carrying a lot of emotional baggage.
Chloe will be a long-term rehab project for the person with a big enough heart to adopt her.
Chloe was found by the side of road in July mourning her canine companion who had been hit and killed by a car. She remained with her fallen companion for three days until Sacramento
City Animal Control picked her up and took her to the shelter. Chloe is technically still a Sacramento City Shelter dog, but is now in a foster
here for a video on Channel 13 News' Website about Chloe's devotion to
her fallen companion.
Chloe is first and foremost the most loyal friend you could ever have. She likes other dogs and respects the cat in her foster home. She is still very fearful of loud noises and new things, and is also terrified of small children. Chloe's ideal home would be a patient, loving person or couple with another dog and not much social activity in the home.
Chloe will be a long term project and I do truly believe she will improve but doubt she will ever be comfortable in active social settings. It will probably always take her a little time to warm up to new people.
Please contact Staci Saladino, Chloe's foster mom, at
an approximately 9-yr old, spayed female GSD mix who is
healthy, happy and very loving. She loves to play and run and go for
walks. Luna is friendly with other dogs and cats as well.
Luna has been an outside dog most of her life, but would
happily adjust to being an indoor dog as she is already house trained.

is a beautiful 2-yr old spayed female GSD/wolf hybrid (very
low-content wolf). Although not very socialized with humans when we
took her in, she
is rapidly growing to love her treats and head scratches and would
love to be in a forever home--especially with other animals. (Although
not cat-proven she doesn't seem to want to chase them). She loves
other dogs and gets along very well with them. She came from a
backyard breeding operation that was disbanded last year and is desperate
for a home.
Sundance is located at the

is a 5˝-yr old (as of 8-9-12) male German
Shepherd or Belgian Tervuren/Keeshond mix who is super friendly,
affectionate, smart, and obedient. Furry Friends Rescue of Fremont
rescued Titan from the Hayward Shelter on 7/16/07, mostly due to his
aggression towards other dogs. But there was something special about
Titan and so we decided to put in an extra effort to help him. He's
had an extended stay with some trainers and is responding very well.
People with experience handling German Shepherds would be best for
Titan. The trainers are willing to continue working with whoever
adopts him. He now has a bright future and will thank you every day.
Titan is a large dog, weighing about 80 lbs.
