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.

Inga~Crossposting~Located in Nampa, ID

LOCATED IN NAMPA, IDAHO~~INGA's Story...Inga is an approximately 2 year old female German shepherd dog or German shepherd dog mix. Inga weighs 60 pounds at this time and could use to put on a few pounds. Inga gets along with the other dogs in her foster home including a small 15 pound neutered male sheltie. We do not know how she is with cats. This dog lives for her people. We have not seen her with children, but she is most devoted to her foster mom and dad and is always next to one of them, if allowed. We feel that before coming into foster care Inga had not lived indoors. Even though she is now crate trained and housetrained, she cannot be trusted in the kitchen alone with things on the counter. When Inga's foster family is away from home, Inga spends time in her crate. At night she is allowed to sleep free in the family room with one of the other dogs. She is not destructive. Inga can jump a 4 foot fence and will do so to try to find you! So you cannot leave her outside when you are not home. If her foster mom is home, Inga makes no attempts to go over the fence and would rather be indoors. When outside she will bark when she sees something unfamiliar, but is not a nuisance barker. This dog needs a formal obedience class and some confidence building. She is ready to bond with her new family and a class is a great way to start. Inga's adoption fee is $200 and includes spay, vaccinations, microchip, collar and ID tag. If interested in possibly adopting Inga, email Joan for an adoption application at » read more

Your Dog Guru-Coming to Montana for Seminar!!!

We are excited!!~~Jimi Livshitz/Your Dog Guru, is coming to Montana to do a seminar on dog training. Please check him out on his website and email us at for more information. We will post on here and our Facebook page when we have dates available and cost of the seminar. Here is a bit about Jimi from his website!! Jimi Livshitz has been involved in training dogs for over 27 years starting in Israel and then in the US for the past 13 years. His first Dog was a mid size abandoned and abused shepherd mix male named Miki. Miki eventually became a Service Dog for a local disabled person assisting with epileptic seizure detection. Jimi has learned with some of the best, including from direct descendants of Dr. Rudolphina Menzel who was a cynologist best known for her work in the field of animal behavior in Austria. Jimi furthered his experience by working with all different breeds and training for a variety of purposes. By the time Jimi was 15 he was training dogs that were at such a high level of skil and obedience that they were selected as detection, cadaver, guide, and seizure alert dogs. He continued apprenticing under many of the best trainers at the time. Jimi spent many years training and competing with his GSD Nora in protection and obedience up to a SCH III competitor. He traveled throughout Europe to continue his education in Germany and Holland later consulting with Police operations with KNPV. During time serving in IDF Jimi trained and successfully deployed many K9 Teams for tactical real life situations. During the time of service he was influential and essential part in Oketz. Jimi has resided in Arizona for the past 13 years and calls Phoenix his new home. He has been responsible for training some of the best, most talented and friendliest dogs you’ll run into around the Valley. His dream is to help get the State of Arizona to be pound-free while placing dogs as service animals for disabled and in-need individuals. Take a look at what some of Jimi’s clients have to say about him on his Testimonials page. » read more

Shutting down the Rescue

Hello All, The last dog, Lando has been adopted out...I just want to inform everyone that the website will soon be shut down, I am not taking in any more dogs, just crossposting for some people. It has been a hard and long journey for me, and I hope you all appreciate the work I have done and not count on what there needs to be done. I have done my best at all times, and now I need to quit, someone else needs to take the reins, but I haven't found anyone crazy enough to do it!! Please everyone, check your local shelters and those abroad. Look on; Adopt a Pet, and Petfinder, and RescueMe...there are alot of wonderful GSD's out there looking for adoption. Puppies are something that everyone wants, but then I get them into rescue, anywhere from 4 months old to 2 yrs old, the terrible 2's for GSD's...I personally love the seniors the best, all trained and just loving their chance at a new life!!! People get that cute puppy and then don't train it, just throw it in their back yard with no training and expect them to know everything, PEOPLE, it takes dedication and constant training from the day you get your puppy!! Please don't give up on them, and take them to dog training class, it socializes your puppy and they bond better with you. Any questions please feel free to email, but the regular email will be shut down eventually with this website. Thank you all for your continued support of Montana GSD/Belgian Malinois Rescue, Sincerely, Steph » read more

Kina-Available UPDATE!

AVAILABLE AGAIN FOR ADOPTION....Unfortunately Kina is available again, her owner could not keep her contained and on leash as instructed...She definitely needs a fenced yard...she is still on her Heartworm treatment and needs to be kept on leash for the next 2 months to control the passing of her Heartworms. Kina is such a happy girl prancing around like she owns the place, she is great in the house, lets you know by whining when she needs to go out, she has a terrific nose on her and will follow it if allowed free. She does have high prey drive for deer, so needs work on that area, AFTER her treatment is over...Kina adores little children...if anyone is still interested in her or would like more info, please email me. Thanks, Steph ~~Kina is here~Kina may look a little rough around the edges, but she has a heart of gold. She came to us with severe flea allergies, and she is looking so much better after some TLC and flea prevention! She passed her evaluation with flying colors and is truly a sweet, docile girl. Unfortunately she has tested positive for heartworm. We will need to get Kina treated before she is adopted, or find a nice quiet home, where she can go through the treatment and not have much exercise..till she passes the heartworms. Maybe 2-3 yrs old? Kina seems to get along with all dogs, and loves to be with her human. » read more
