German Shepherd and Belgian Malinois Rescue

Serving Montana, Washington, Idaho and Wyoming

Our goal is to match the right dog with the right family. We are often able to help coordinate logistics if you are interested in a dog that is not in your immediate area.

Mission Statement: To find caring, loving, permanent homes for surrendered, abandoned or neglected dogs and puppies. Montana German Shepherd Rescue hopes to ease the problem of the population overflow occuring in many of our shelters today.

We educate the individual on the importance of sterilizing the pet and providing superior care. We are composed of a network of foster families and are in need of finding more foster care providers with the time and commitment to provide care for these animals in transition.

We also are in need of people to provide transportation for these animals. We are an ALL-VOLUNTEER rescue. ANY DONATIONS are greatly appreciated and will help a GSD find it's forever home or feed a friend in need.

Make Your Donations Today through GoFundMe. It's completely secure and you will help dogs in need at our facilities.

We need things such as dog beds, x-large, quality dog food, leashes, stainless steel bowls, rugs for crates, and of course donations of money towards vet bills for spay/neuters, shots, etc.

Jack-Owner passed away

Jack's owner passed away the other day, he is now a trained service dog, 6 yrs old. He is very smart, as his new owner trained him in German also, so he is bi-lingual. Does NOT like little dogs..Former listing~~Jack is coming into rescue, his owners moved into an apartment in the big city, and can no longer giver jack the stimulation he needs. He absolutely loves humans and especially if they will play with him or give him a job to do. He is absolutely the smartest dog that I have ever owned and has a ridiculous innate ability to fulfill commands that the handler will give. Fetch, tug, agility and herding type exercises are amongst his favorite activities. He is very calm and docile inside our apartment. Outside and playtime he is consistently willing to give 125% effort. When it is playtime he is very mission and job driven. The dog will literally keep playing as long as the handler wants, which puts the responsibility on the handler to know the dog's limitations. I have an extremely great dog that I love, who gives me 125% all the time, and is extremely obedient- ready to please, We had a behaviorist assess him and she ruled out any anxiety or dog aggression. It was her opinion that Jack was a true working dog. A working dog by both breed type and true personality. I say that because we also have an English Mastiff who is also a working dog, just with a different definition of work! She went on to opine that Jack would excel at certain working dog sports. Mainly she mentioned three things: 1. Schutzhund 2. Herding 3. Agility She recommended that I write up a letter to demonstrate all the useful commands and talents that he knows. She was very impressed with the level of intelligence and training that Jack displayed, especially when given a job to do.  Prior to moving out here, I invested an enormous amount of time training Jack to a high level. He is at a place where I think with a good handler he would be one of (if not the) best dog for Schutzhund, agility , or herding. I especially agree with this because Jack at 5 years old is extremely fast, light, and agile.  Jack gets excited around other dogs on initial interaction, but not uncontrollably so. After doing the initial bottom sniffing meet-n-greet he will no longer engage or interact with the dog. Rather he is more concerned with finding a job to do. Videos of his agility work will be provided upon request. » read more

Rosco-Crossposting

Located in Baker City, Oregon (eastern Oregon) Hi there! Please let me introduce myself as "Rosco the Gorgeous" a German Shepherd.  Yes, I am a purebred black and tan German Shepherd and a little unhappy.  You see, my owner can no longer keep me in her rental home.  I weigh about 105 pounds  and am 8 years old.  I am physically healthy except for some arthritis in my hips which is typical of German Shepherds.  In other words, I don't walk or run as far as I used to.  I have a vision condition called Pannus which is also typical of German Shepherds so I wear "Doggles" or dog goggles in the bright sunlight.  I do better inside during the bright sunny days and enjoy my  walks and play time in the evenings. I am now being treated by a veterinarian to improve my vision and arthritis with quality food and medication. I am an extremely well behaved guy who enjoys being around children and dogs of all sizes.   In fact, I am living with a small male dog and we get along very well.  There is also a cat in my house and we are okay together.  Sometime we are not sure who rules the roost, the cat or me but I am not a threat to her.  If there were a dog in my new home, I would expect a slow and proper introduction and things would go well.  I also like men and women but am a little cautious when I first meet people to see how they react to me and my size.  I am not a barker, or aggressive in any way.  I do not bark when people come to the door and rarely bark when other dogs bark at me.  I was never trained to do any tricks but know my basic commands, walk fairly well on a leash and am totally house trained for hours at a time.  I also like to go for rides in the back seat of the car.  I am well behaved and am not destructive in or out of the house.  I do not dig holes nor try to climb fences.  I am also neutered and current on all my vaccinations.  Please call Carmen at 541-519-4530 or Best Friends of Baker, Inc. at 541-519-7387 for more information or an application. » read more
