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.
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.
Ruso is an adult male, about 6-7 yrs old, he is a very nice dog, minds well, is great in the house, but needs a home without other dogs. Ruso loves to give kisses, and shakes hands. He is a very loving guy, just wanting someone to call his own. A very nice boy. » read more
What a gorgeous and wonderful temperament this guy has, he seems to want to play with the other dogs, he comes when called, obeys his commands, and is great in the house. A very sweet, gentle natured guy. I think he may be Belgian Sheepdog. His coat is very plush and soft. » read more
Gibbs is an awesome and big, energetic guy, around 4 yrs old. Gibbs loves to play ball, and loves to lean on you for cuddles. Gibbs had Achilles Tendon repair done, so he was in a cast for awhile last fall. We are trying to limit his jumping, but he has so much energy and he is so healthy, it is tough. ;-) He is getting some leash manners also. He is great in the house, but he does follow his nose alot, and will get into mischief if not watched!! Gibbs loves playing with Pollyana, female dogs would be better with him..Gibbs will require an experienced GSD owner... » read more
Leo is a by all accounts an older gentleman. We are guessing him to be approximately 10yrs old. He has a spark in his eyes and he is a super sweet and very calm dog. He is dog friendly. I can't imagine he would have any issue with cats either. He likes people very much. He does need some training because right now he isn’t a big fan of having his feet touched...he initially let me touch them but as I continued he got annoyed. He also needs work on proper behavior with his food. He loves to have his back scratched and to just lay down and watch the world. He walks awesome on a leash, although his joints are a little achy like most of us that are getting up there with age. » read more

Mach is back at the rescue and in foster care. He is looking for that special, dedicated home that will work with him and be the safe haven that he longs for. Mach is a one year old male, he is very sweet and loving once you earn his trust. This poor boy had a rough start. His early departure from his litter mates has left him with the inability to understand the normal boundaries of play. He gets a little rough and when another dog tries to correct him, he doesn’t understand. This can lead to a fight, but under supervision and correction from his foster family he has been learning some boundaries. He has learned to play with toys as well, but lack of experience and guidance has led to some guarding of them with other dogs. Once again it is where his family steps in and he will back off quickly from the toy with little correction needed. Mach has slowly adapted to being in a yard – so much time spent in a crate makes him unsure when in large open areas. When he trusts you, he will be more relaxed so you have to be outside with him to show him he is safe. He walks great on a leash and prefers to have a harness. He really enjoys this bonding time. Mach LOVES to be brushed – this is how I earned his trust. We spent about a half an hour just getting groomed and looking handsome. When I would stop brushing he would nuzzle my hand until I started again. He likes to chase his foster sister and they wrestle until they are both tired out, I love to see his GSD smile when he is just being a relaxed pup. If you can give Mach your time to learn the skills he never had a chance to gain, the patience to earn his trust even when he takes a step backward, and the love to make his life safe and secure you will be the luckiest person in the world. Are you the devoted forever home for Mach? Please fill out an application to adopt this awesome boy!!! Mach is now playing and bounding around like the puppy he is!!! He is having a ball running around the back yard, and is even trying to play with the other dogs. He is no longer afraid of the other dogs..What a great guy. He is only about a yr old. A gorgeous dark sable. He is another pup that has only known his crate for his whole life. That is changing. He is fearful but not to the point of being snappy, just not sure, He does try to learn and will search things, but carefully. It will take someone with alot of patience and kindness to give this guy some security. He WILL come out of it. He really is a cuddle bug. A long lead will need to stay on this guy for guidance for at least 30-60 days. Mach will make someone a wonderful companion..He has been doing great here. He is afraid of other dogs, so some understanding will be needed there. When he was coming out of anesthesia from getting neutered, the clinic cat layed on top of him and kneaded his body and he didn't care a bit!!! » read more
