1 Year / Male
Raider is a one-year-old, long-haired GSD. He loves to cuddle and loves to always be near you. He currently lives with a female golden retriever and a two-year-old little boy. He does very well with both. He is currently unaltered. He has so much potential to be an amazing dog with proper training and exercise. He LOVES to run! He currently is not leash trained but will do great with time and training. He is a total love bug at heart and is very well-behaved in the home (house trained, no chewing, does not ruin household items). He would be a great fit for many families! Unknown how he is around cats and other small animals. We are located in Citrus Heights, CA

8-9 years / Male
Hero is about 8 or 9 years old. He was rescued at age 2 with a lot of separation anxiety, so he loves to be around his people. He does well when left alone, however, he likes to be near you if you are home. He loves belly rubs and laying by your feet. Hero enjoys walks and time outside. He does not interact well with other dogs if he is on a leash. He listens to basic commands and wants to make his companion happy. Hero would do very well with a family or companion that has no or older children and spends a lot of time outside.

Jackson is an 11 month old neutered male GS mix. He is crate trained, housebroken, and good with other dogs and cats. He is very sweet, loving, and energetic. He would be a great agility dog or running partner, although he is a ball hound and would play all day. He was rescued from a high kill shelter after he was dumped after someone ‘docked’ his ears. He doesn’t know he looks funny though, he’s full of joy and love.

Young / Male
This sweet boy showed up on my porch at the beginning of January and we’ve been searching for his owner ever since. We’ve been able to keep him safe, fed, and provide shelter, but can’t continue to keep him. He gets along great with other dogs and children. He seems to be under a year old and not fixed. Beautiful markings and eyes and he is not chipped. Very smart guy as he already knows some basic commands like “sit, shake, and down.” He is very playful and loves to chase balls and bring them back. He is a great dog, not a barker but will alert you if there is something out of the ordinary. He just needs a loving home!

1 Year Old / Male
I am a little more than one year of age but I have some very good manners and I am really very sweet and gentle. I need to live indoors with my family and not outside so I feel safe and secure. I do have a lot of energy and could sure use regular opportunities to exercise. We are working on my mouthiness control but I am so smart and learn quickly. I do walk well on the leash and I am not dog reactive. I even met the resident cat up close without a problem. We don’t hang out together but it appears that I do not have that high of a prey drive. I know the basic commands of sit, stay, down, stop, and leave it. I am house-trained and will be neutered very soon. The only thing I need is a forever family who understands and loves a big guy like me. If you give me a chance I know we will fall in love forever. Located in Rancho Cordova.

2 Year Old / Male
This is Harely! He will be 2 years old in May. He is very loving, just looking for a home, since his owner abandoned him and we are caring for him until he finds a forever home. He is cautious around other dogs, but is friendly. He is potty trained, knows some basic commands, and enjoys being outside. He currently lives in Sacramento.

3 1/2 Year Old / Female
Mischa is about 3 1/2 years old. She is an amazing family dog who loves all people including kids and is quite a cuddle bug. She is well crate trained, and used to a doggy door, but would probably do fine without it. She responds well to commands when on a leash, but would do well with additional training. We've been working on keeping her feet on the ground when she gets excited, but she calms down fairly quickly. She does have a prey drive so would do best in a home without cats. She also does not do well with other dogs as she prefers to be the only dog. She takes treats very gently and doesn't show any food aggression towards people. She is not the best swimmer (but she tries) and loves to go for walks and hikes to the lake. Located in Citrus Heights.

1 1/2 Year Old / Female
My family and I are looking to rehome our GSD (she is mixed with a little something else but we don’t know what). We've had her since she was 4 weeks old, but due to unfortunate circumstances, we need to rehome her. She is crate trained, potty-trained, and she can sit, lay and shake paws. She is up to date on all of her shots and just had her yearly exam and vaccine last week. She is still learning and is motivated by treats! Socialization with other dogs is still in process but is coming along. She is very family oriented and is good with our small kids. We are looking for someone who is knowledgeable about German shepherds, loving and has room for her to run and play.

4 1/2 Year Old / Male
I recently adopted a purebred 4 1/2-year-old German shepherd imported from Germany from a private owner who could not keep him. Unfortunately, he does not get along with my other dogs. He's a very good boy but would do better in a home where he is the only dog. He is neutered and up to date on shots.

4 Year Old / Male
Rambo is a four-year-old purebred German Shepherd. He is full of energy and is very loving. He is very playful and knows many commands. He loves to run and chase his ball. He needs someone who is firm that will continue to work with him. If he doesn’t get enough exercise or attention he will chase his own tail. He doesn’t do well with cats or free range chickens. But he does well with children and small dogs. He is not fixed but has all of his shots. He would do best with a family that’s home a lot and has a good size yard. He is potty trained and would love to sleep indoors or in your bed if you let him.

5 Year Old / Female
Delta is a 5-year-old German Shepherd rescue. She has been with us since she was 3 months old. We are heartbroken over the decision to find a new home for her. We are unable to give her the love and attention she deserves. She is full of love, especially for her people, and wants to spend every moment with them. She would do better in a home with few visitors as she is protective of her people and space.
Delta has done great with the other dog in our home, aside from a few arguments over food/toys. She may do better being the only dog.
She is likely best matched to older kids as she can be jumpy when excited and her herding instincts kick in. She is a loving dog who means well and would make a great companion for a young couple or single person wanting an exercise or exploration buddy.
