unforeseen circumstances force German Shepherd owners to seek a new home for their dog(s).
This page serves to link such individuals with potential new owners--and to help prevent
the tragedy of owners surrendering their pets to a shelter.
GSRSV is not involved in
the adoption process of dogs listed on this page. Individuals interested in adopting a dog listed below
should contact the
owner directly at the phone number or e-mail listed. Because GSRSV is has
not evaluated the dogs listed here, I cannot
take responsibility for their temperament or health.
If you are an owner interested in listing your German Shepherd Dog(s)
here, please see How to Place a Dog Through GSRSV.

is a pretty 6-7 yo, approx 50-lb spayed female White GSD/Australian
Cattle Dog (Queensland Heeler) who is sweet & gentle. Rue is friendly
and outgoing with strangers. She's been good with all the children she's
met at the park and on walks, and her gentle nature makes her a good
match of kids of all ages.
Rue is good w/ other dogs, including small dogs. She currently lives
with a male Chihuahua/Rat Terrier who she is best buddies with. She is
always friendly with dogs she meets on walks. At GSRSV's rescue ranch,
she was initially rather timid of the several "greeter dogs", but was
never fearfully aggressive. Eventually, she eased up and went exploring
with a bunch of the dogs. (See the video of Rue running besides her
owner Lisa elsewhere on this page.)
Rue is NOT good with cats, which is the very reason she is up for
adoption. 'Nuff said.
Rue is very much a housedog and has great house manners. She has access
to the outside via a dog door and can be left alone (with the Chi/Rat
Terrier) for long periods of time without any problem. Lisa keeps Rue
and her other dog in the kitchen (with outdoor access via the dog door)
when she's gone, separated from the rest of the house w/ a baby
gate--which Rue respects.
Rue walks easily on leash and is non-aggressive towards other dogs she
encounters--though she does whine and pull in an effort to meet the
other dogs. She enjoys going for car rides and is a calm passenger.Rue
is healthy and at a good weight for her age.
Rue's present owner Lisa adopted Rue in March 2015 after learning about
her on Facebook. Rue had been living with her elderly owner and two
other dogs on a 5 acre horse property in Loomis when her owner died of
cancer. There were some cats on the property that Rue didn't seem to
mind, giving Lisa the impression that Rue might be OK w/ cats.
Lisa is seeking a new home for Rue because Rue is not good with cats
after all and though Lisa doesn't have cats, her partner does. Lisa
loves Rue, but can't have a dog that is prey-driven towards cats.
GSRSV evaluated Rue on April 5 for her owner Lisa, but Lisa is placing
her on her own. Please contact Lisa directly at either 916-214-2682 or
email@example.com. Lisa lives in South Sacramento.
