Adopted German Shepherds

Kaiya-Courtesy posting

Kaiya is a beautiful and sweet 2 year old purebred shepherd. She was adopted by our son as he returned from Afghanistan. He is not able to care for her and we have to move from the home we have been renting. She is great with children but not good with other animals. Some adults she loves, others not so much. She needs a lot of love and attention and a predictable schedule. She would benefit from training and more socialization. She is healthy and so very loving! She has enjoyed a doggy door and fenced yard and has never had an accident in the house. If you have time, she will add joy to your life. » read more

Freedom-Adoption pending

Freedom is a beautiful, sweet 1-2 yr old black GSD. She was found as a stray, but she was already spayed, so someone let a beautiful girl go. She is learning the basic obedience commands, is gaining weight, now at about 60 pounds. Freedom plays well with other dogs. Some info from her present foster Mom. She's learning how to fetch and release, hard for her as she'd rather keep the toy!!  She's learning how to sit, although she seems to find it a waste of time since she's so busy and making her stop and sit is silly to her but if she wants the treat she has to work for it.  I've been going very slow with her as I know she needs time to adjust and trust someone.  She's not sure of other people who come into the house but if they ignore her and allow her to make the first move she's usually okay with all of it.  She walks very nice on the leash, does not pull in the least.  She does however like to grab it in her mouth to play, so I try to have a stick for her to play with to get her mind off the leash.  She was not potty trained, but is doing very well with it and learning how to potty on command!! She is kennel trained and she really is scared of riding in the back seat of a truck and I have to lift her up into it but seems to want to jump in the bed of the truck if she could.Coming soon. » read more

Angel-Updated...Coming back

Angel's adopter fell off a ladder and has 16 weeks of bedrest, so is unable to take care of her, LOOKING FOR A NEW ADOPTER!!!...Angel has been diagnosed with EPI, Pancreatic Insufficiency, which requires enzymes on her food with every meal..This poor 3 year old, long haired girl, has spent her entire life in a wire pen in the backyard of a not so nice person's house. His wife got the dog when it was a puppy and then the wife got cancer and died and the husband just kept the dog even though he is not an animal lover and didn't give a care about it. He gives her food but nothing else. And when she escapes the pen he beats the hell out of her. His neighbor, this SWEET old lady called me begging for help, as he said he would let her go if this lady would find a home for it. I had my foster mom go assess her and she said she is just sweet as pie, except she cowers, runs, and hides from the owner. She is big puppy and needs basic training. She likes to jump up and nibble on you like a puppy. I am sure she hasn't had any sort of training. She supposedly has no prey drive and could care less about the cats in the backyard, the squirrels running around, and the magpies eat her food. We do not know how she is with other dogs. And small kids would be a no as she would knock them over. Please lets get this girl out of her present situation. FAST!!! » read more

Dakota- Update--Courtesy Posting-Boise, ID

Dakota is a gorgeous 6 year old German shepherd dog. Like most German shepherds, Dakota knows her place is at her owner's side. She is a very devoted dog. When her foster mom is asked to describe Dakota, she says she is a happy, athletic, smart dog. She also has a puppy like quality to her, loves to fetch and play with other dogs. Dakota is housetrained and crate trained and rides well in vehicles. She gets along with other dogs, but would prefer to live with a male dog or dogs. She can scramble over a 4 foot high fence to come and find you, so cannot be left outside when you are not home. This dog has a great recall so can go off leash hiking with her people. When you call her, get ready, because she comes enthusiastically!  Email Joan for an application at or call 208-283-9513. Upon approval and home visit, adopters will be asked to sign a contract and pay an adoption fee (which covers the cost of spay/neuter, vaccinations and other necessities). » read more

Sarge-UPDATE-courtesy posting

Sarge is only about a year old and weighs in at a whopping ninety-eight pounds. He's a friendly boy to humans, and is learning about proper interactions with other dogs, and is doing very well with that. Sarge is looking for a home knowledgeable of GSDs and their training/socialization needs. He's incredibly intelligent, and should be a joy to train. Due to his limited social skills, Sarge would be best suited in a home with older children. Sarge is really looking to be an integral part of the family. He wants to go hiking, camping, swimming in the river, all of those fun things! And talk about HANDSOME! His massive frame and blocky noggin are stunning to look at.Sarge does have a case of hip dysplasia, and is scheduled for surgery in February. If you're interested in adopting Sarge please contact Gabi at Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter or 406-294-7387 for more information and to fill out an application. He is also in need of a foster home before, during, and after his surgery. If you can't adopt, foster. If you can't foster, donate! If you can't donate, volunteer! » read more

Phoenix is a 2 year old neutered male German shepherd dog. Phoenix loves people and is good with children, although he might knock over a small child unintentionally. He is good with medium and large dogs, but plays too rough for small dogs. This is a happy dog that loves to go for rides in the car and do anything you are doing. He is housetrained and crate trained. Phoenix knows some basic obedience, but we would love for his new human to take him to a formal obedience class where he could refine his skills. Phoenix is considered a special needs dog because he has Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency. He was adopted from a shelter in Utah as a puppy, but when he was diagnosed earlier this year with EPI, his family took him back to the shelter. Here is information on EPI:   His condition is being easily and successfully managed by the addition of digestive enzymes to each meal. In March of this year Phoenix weighed 49 pounds. He is now up to 68 pounds and an active and robust canine...and did we mention he is a HAPPY boy?  Phoenix comes with a one year supply of his digestive enzymes. If you are interested in possibly adopting Phoenix, please email us for an adoption application today. Upon approval and home visit, adopters will be asked to sign a contract and pay an adoption fee (which covers the cost of spay/neuter, vaccinations and other necessities).

Miss Scarlett

Miss Scarlett is a very sweet female German shepherd that we brought into our home just shy of two years ago. She was our second adopted Shepherd from MT GSD Rescue and my third Shepherd all together.  She is around 4 years old and is very has been a pleasure to have around. Our family has fallen in love with her but sadly, our other female dog does not feel the same and has started several fights with her and Scarlett is just too sweet to fight back.  For many reasons this is just heart breaking for us but out of concern for her I feel like she really needs a new home.  We live on 3.5 fenced acres outside of Missoula and so the Pups have some room to run.  We do a lot of biking and hiking and Scarlett is awesome on adventures.  We never have her on a leash but she stays close by and always comes back when called. She has been rafting several times and is good in the water and the boat as well. She is very friendly with other dogs… very playful too. She does have the habit of “standing up” to look out the front door, ect and needs a bit of reminding to not jump up on people when she gets excited. We have two kids that are all over her all the time and she is very sweet and gentle with them. She also loves to play fetch. Scarlett is a very unique looking dog.  I currently have a white Male shepherd who is a good size and she is taller and longer than him and thinner too although she eats more than the other dogs.  She is primarily Tan with a long black snout. You can see in the pictures that we are not strict with our Pups… she loves to lounge on the couch, etc. but when she was brought to us she would not get on furniture at all so I am sure she could be broken of that easily.   We have 40 chickens that roam around outside and she has never been aggressive towards them although she does love to chase rabbits, ect. She has been aggressive towards cats but if you just have barn cats she most likely would adjust to them. » read more
