Please go to our Adoption Application Page and complete that form in its entirety as the first step to setting up a meet and greet with one of our dogs or puppies. The process does not take very long and we look forward to helping you find just the right dog or puppy. Please read our adoption policies on the application.
We have been asked about our Adoption Donation and the fact is it varies. Senior and Special Needs Dogs are $125 or less and German Shepherd Puppies are $450. The average adoption donation is $300. Our dogs and puppies are fully vaccinated or we provide the vaccines through our vet and under her directions in the case of young puppies, they are spayed or neutered as age appropriate or spayed/neutered by our vet when they are old enough, socialized, come with varying degrees of obedience training in English and German, have a microchip or will get one when appropriate, and we know these animals well so we can tell you the good and bad about each.
Brandy is just about a year old and looking for her forever home with a person or family that will make a commitment never to leave her and reassure her of this until she believes it.

needs to be in her crate when her humans leave her. She is in the Dunnellon foster home. You can E-mail WeLuvGSDs@gsrfl.com.

Churcha is 2-years-old and a real sweetie. I do not think she loves being in a big, noisy foster home and would be happier living with her humans and another dog or two. Churcha is easy going, gets on with everyone and a totally gentle soul. She is a great family dog.

Lil' Buddy or affectionately called FUD, is an 8 pound, 9-10 month old Shih
Tzu/Chihuahua mix boy. His foster home was asked to take him by a friend because he was running the neighborhood and the neighbors were afraid that he would get hit by a car or killed by a larger animal. He was released by his previous owners and came into rescue. Buddy is a loving, happy boy that gets along well with all dogs, big and small. He does tend to have that barky
chihuahua attitude, thinking he is a German Shepherd, and is a little shy of strangers until he gets used to new people. He loves to cuddle and be with his person all the time, if possible. Buddy would be best in a home with no small children as he was ormented in his previous home by small children and he does
not trust them at all. He is crate trained and up to date on his shots.
Selena is a sweet, happy
girl 2-year-old girl that is looking for a new home. She and her puppies were abandoned in an empty house by their family when they moved out and didn't take mom or babies. We were called to help rescue her and her puppies. The puppies
have all found homes and now she is ready to start a new life. Selena is a playful and loving. She is a bit shy and it does take a while for her to warm up to new people. She seems to like women but has quickly warmed up to her foster dad so she is learning to trust again. Selena currently lives with many
other dogs, big and small, but because of her playful nature and need of a larger playmate, she will only be placed with a larger playmate and in a home with a fenced in yard. She is crate trained and house broken using the dog door
with no issues at all. Selena definitely deserves a good home where she can live the rest of her life and never have to worry about being abandoned like yesterday's trash.
To set up a meet a greet with Selena after you get an approval E-mail card please contact her foster Mom.
Whisper is a seven-year-old male we recently rescued from OCAS. His owner chose to surrender Whisper when the county contacted the owner because of his horrendous condition. Whisper has significantly hair loss, is extremely thin, and heartworm positive. He deserves a heck of a lot more than he has gotten thus far from humans.
G. Callan is a member of our NCIS: LA team and came to rescue on 12/07/12/. We'd like to spend some more getting to know him before we say too much. We can tell you we have him crate trained and he gets along with other dogs. Too soon to know about kitties. Right now he has kennel cough, a heart murmur and a possible ACL tear that may have to be surgically repaired at a cost of $1200. We'll keep you updated as Callan. He also has a Grade I Heart Murmur and is Heartworm Positive. This lovely dog just can't catch a break. You can E-mail WeLuvGSDs@gsrfl.com. G. Callan is not ready to leave rescue.

Missy, a 1 to 2-year-old, came to us from the Bahamas. She is a total love and a happy puppy. This girl is energetic and loves to run and play. Missy has a genetic joint issue in her rear left leg that does not stop her one bit. Her leg locks at times and she just keeps going. She loves to play with the other dogs and is great at cuddling. Missy is a sweetie. You can E-mail her foster Mom at Starbabyfl@aol.com or WeLuvGSDs@gsrfl.com.
Obie Wan is another awesome 7-year-old boy that is a serious dog. He formerly was hand shy from former abuse. Obie spends most of his time at his mistress' side watching over her. He is definitely an inside companion animal. Obie has a mangled left ear from a hemotoma he had before coming to rescue. Obie doesn't play with toys instead just assigns himself to his mistress. In other words he is a total and complete love and available only to an experienced German Shepherd Dog handler. He is living at Dancing Dog Farm, Summerfield, FL. You can learn more about him by contacting his foster Mom at WeLuvGSDs@gsrfl.com.
Paige is a four-year-old girl that can have a strong will. She came to rescue very thin and has filled out nicely. Paige is crate trained, housebroken and good with children and adults. She plays with other dogs and puppies. Please go to our website www.GSRFL.org and complete the Adoption Application if you want to meet Paige.
Patronous is 8-year-old Saint Bernard and surrendered by his owner when her new boyfriend didn't like Patronous. We changed his name when he came to rescue to give him a new life, one where he knows he is loved and valued. Patronous is house trained and we have never had a need to put him in a crate. He does sleep on his foster Mom's bed at night and at 112-pounds (he needs to gain a little weight) it is very crowded up there with his foster brothers and sisters. Foster Mom gets about four inches of bed at night. LOL. And loves all the great cuddles. Unfortunately, his former owner shaved him we think because of flea dermititis and he is still growing out. Shaving a a noble St. Bernard is not in the dogs best interest. We are listing him as having a medium length coat because we honestly don't know if it will be medium or long. Patronous is only available to someone with a fenced yard so he is safe when he goes outside to take care of business. Patronous as yet does not know how to use the doggy door so his foster Mom serves as his doorman. Patronous is also excellent with children and loves playing with them. She would be happiest in a family with at least one other dog and children. To set up a meet a greet with Patronous you need to first fill out the Adoption Application at www.GSRFL.org. For more information you can contact his foster Mom at WeLuvGSDs@gsrfl.com.
Sam Hanna is a member of our NCIS: LA team and came to rescue on 12/07/12/. We'd like to spend some more getting to know him before we say too much. We can tell you we have him crate trained and he gets along with other dogs. Too soon to know about kitties. Sam warms quickly to women and does not like men even a little bit. Therefore, we would like to place him with only women. He cuddles with his foster Mom and loves sleeping on the bed. We'll keep you updated. He is in the Dunnellon foster home. You can E-mail WeLuvGSDs@gsrfl.com
