All dogs listed here are either in 5 star kennels or in a foster home but are NOT AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION. Many of these dogs are older dogs who have bonded with their foster home so it would be unfair to move them on. Some of these dogs may have had behaviour problems that can be managed happily where they are but would cause a problem if the dog was moved. As long as each dog is happy and has a good quality of life, they will stay under the care of the rescue where they are loved and cared for by our approved foster homes or kennels.

Why we do what we do

German Shepherd Rescue Elite was not only set up to help as many unwanted, abandoned and neglected German Shepherds as possible, but to also offer education to the general public on the responsibilities / pros / cons of owning a large working breed dog and to be able to offer help and advice so hopefully we can become the prevention for once instead of always being the cure.
