Welcome to Second Chance German Shepherd Rescue
After more than 20 years and over 4000 foster dogs,
Mike and I still have a passion for helping these magnificent German Shepherds.
Our goal, as always, is to find the perfect match for each dog and each adopter.
Visit us to say hello or find your next dog.
All the best,
Dez Murray, President

Callie is a stunning 11 month old female that is eager to become your best buddy. She loves her people and will lean in with every ounce of her being to let you know that. Callie loves all people and is anxious to meet every last one. That's usually the only time she pulls on the leash - mostly she walks easily; stopping to sniff everything along the way. Callie is also polite and social with other dogs. She is housebroken, crate trained and rides well in the car. Callie loves her squeaky toys and enjoys a good game of fetch, but she thinks it's even more fun if she plays 'keep away' with you. Callie thinks she's all grown up, but she's still technically a puppy and needs some reassurance along the way as the world is big and a little scary at times. She's made some dog friends and is eager to meet more, but proper introduction and trust-building will go a long way. You can almost immediately reap the rewards of her affection while helping her build her confidence and learning the ropes of the big world.
If you would like to learn more about Callie, please fill out a questionnaire and a volunteer will contact you.
Guy is a very large, gorgeous male that is approximately 4 years old but acts much younger. Since he's been in foster care, he has shown his true personality and honestly, we can’t believe that Guy hasn’t been adopted yet. He is the total package! He is quiet, affectionate, playful, friendly, housebroken, crate trained, rides well in the car, loves walks and walks nicely on leash and loves water. He has great house manners, likes other dogs and loves being with his person. He loves squeaky toys and enjoys his own version of fetch in the yard called "catch me if you can". Guy is always up for an adventure but is just as happy to relax and chill with you at home, as long as he’s with you. Guy’s only wish in life is to be part of a family in a forever home.

Chief is a handsome and fun 3 year old male who loves to learn and is very loyal. He is independent and reserved in public but warms up as he gets to know you. He is an expert at ball games, enjoys leashed walks, and loves to be outside in nice weather where he is quiet and well behaved. Chief is easy to train and we suspect he would do well in agility or scent training if that’s your thing, or he will just settle happily inside with a chew toy on a rainy day. He may also do well in a home with well mannered children. He has been a fantastic pet in his foster home and would love to become a fabulous family member in your fur-ever home. Chief has a high drive and wants to work with a person who can enjoy his joyful athleticism.

Hogan is a very large, classic black and tan 3-4 year old male with sparkling, soulful, light brown eyes. He's smart, observant, curious and self-confident. He has an independent spirit but is very cuddly. He doesn’t seem to be aware of his size and would love to be a lapdog! Hogan loves car rides and is house broken. He learns quickly and wants to please. Hogan is learning to spend time in his crate, and walk nicely on a leash. He is up for any activity but is also just as happy to relax with you. He gets along beautifully with the older female dog in his foster home and children, but we are unsure about cats and male dogs. His foster family really loves him and reports if they didn’t already have another dog, they would adopt him in a minute.
If you would like to learn more about Hogan, please fill out a questionnaire and a volunteer will contact you.
