Adopting a rescue dog

can bring you years of

love, adventure and fun! Just read the comments below!!

Happened across your page and had to post. About 9 years ago you introduced me to my best friend (and now my wife's) Sadie (then Sada) and I have logged hundreds if not thousand of hiking miles in the north country over those years. She shows no sign of slowing down either. I can never express my gratitude with words. She has been the most amazing companion I have ever had the fortune to roam with. Gentle, incredibly intuitive, a lust for life most people could only dream of and unfaltering protection against the unruly and violent northern red squirrel. So just a quick thank you from all of us.

Learn about GSD'S

Thinking about a German Shepherd?  They are a wonderful breed of dog.  Learn more about them here.

Veterinary costs continue to rise and that doesn’t even take into consideration our normal vet fees for spay/neuter and vaccinations.    The adoption fees simply don’t cover all these added expenses. With your help, we can continue doing the work we do for our beloved German Shepherd Dogs. All donations are tax deductible.

Happy Endings
