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.

Name Me!!

NAME GAME TIME!!!~~This pretty dark sable girl is coming in next week. She has had a rough start in life, being a breeding female and looks like she has gotten in some tousles with other females, her ears are chewed up abit. She has the saddest look on her face!! She does try to assert her dominance with other females, so a home with a male dog, would be best. Nothing known about cats or kids at this point, more will be known when she gets here. She is about 3-4 yrs old, spayed now, and UTD on shots...... » read more


Wanted—firm but fair, confident, and fun two-legged to give me my forever home.  My name is Ruger, I am 3 1/2 yrs old, and I haven’t had the best start in life.  My first family let me rule the roost, gave me no rules or boundaries to live within, and did not socialize me very well.  Unsurprisingly, I became too much for them to deal with, so they gave me up.  My 2nd person, who I thought was going to be perfect for me, brought me back after only a week because he said he just couldn’t deal with me in his life at that time.  When I first came into rescue, I was extremely fearful and defensive because of it, but the wonderful lady here has worked very hard to bring me out of my shell and has shown me that there isn’t anything to be afraid of, and so I am becoming a more confident, happy dog.  I will now let her pet me while I am eating and will even eat politely out of her hand.  I jump up on the front of my kennel now when I see her coming instead of cowering in the back of my kennel because I know she will pet me and will even take me out for a walk or just to play.  I have a dog in the kennel next to me who is sort of silly, and I can just look at her and think she is silly instead of having to growl and try to scare her away.  I did have to snap at her nose when she stuck it through to snip at me, so I think I would still be better off in a one dog household, but I’m trying to be brave and be a good boy.  I am very protective of my people and property, so someone who is knowledgeable about my breed and how to show me when being protective is okay and when it isn’t is a must, but with proper guidance and reassurance, I promise I will be your forever best friend, and we will conquer the world together.  I am learning to walk politely on a leash, am house broke,  and will stick with my person once I know I can trust them.  I love riding in the car, but I am much happier riding inside with you, not stuck in the back of some pickup truck.   Please come and meet me and I will show you what a happy, loyal, devoted and yes, protective boy I can be! » read more

Duke was stolen by  Pam Zachritz of the Chicago area. Pam has a prior arrest for STEALING another dog, please crosspost wide and far, to stop this from happening again. She did adopt Murh the Malinois, came out here to Montana for a vacation at my home, and pick Murph up, but took it upon herself to take Duke also, knowing that he was being adopted the day after she took him...please help us locate and return Duke. She also stole other MTGSD property, including original dog files for the dogs and for a dog she doesn't have, a wire crate and other MTGSD property... The Sheriff is working on the case also. Duke would make someone a great Personal Protection Dog. with the correct training. Duke is a 2 yr old AKC Registered male. He needs an experienced adopter and continued obedience training. He is a dominant dog and needs socialization. Great in the house, and loves to go for rides in the car. He is VERY protective so no small kids or cats. » read more
