Adopted German Shepherds


Vonn needs a home with direction and training. Vonn is a nine month old purebred GSD that was rescued from a puppy mill at 3 months. He is very hyper and have a super strong prey drive. He does well with kids and other dogs, even little ones, but not with cats. He needs a home that is much more active than ours and someone with the time and patience to work with him. One of his ears only stands up about half the time but we think that gives him character :) » read more


Dax is here and is a great big, long coated, 2 yr old, puppy, unfortunately, his owners didn't take time to train him when he was younger. Athough he does know sit and down. He is a bit reactive around other dogs, so is getting some training for that. He is great with people, but will need to go to an experienced home, due to his size and lack of training. He rode to Montana with a car full of little kids, and did great. » read more

Diva-Malfoi- Malinois'

Sorry to inform all, but Diva passed away due to a cancerous bladder. Malfoi did not do well without her and declined rapidly so he was put down humanely. They will be missed and had the time of there life here at the dog ranch...Diva and Malfoi came in as a pair of seniors. They are very sweet dogs, Diva is a doll, Malfoi is hurting so is a bit growly. We are starting him on Rimadyl for arthritis pain. Can someone find it in their hearts to give either just Diva or both of these 2 seniors a home for the years that they have left?? Malfoi will stay here till he passes on. He does kind of fall over, but still perky....They are house trained, ride great in the car, and were Military dogs at one point in their lives. So they know lots of commands. They have been together their whole lives. The son left town and left the dogs with his Dad, who cannot take care of them. No other dogs or cats, in the household. Someone that is experienced with trained Malinois only. » read more

Salinger-Courtesy Post for Helena

Salinger: 1 yr. old male Shepherd X  You Tube video:   Salinger is a 1 yr. old Shepherd cross rescued from Fort Belnap Reservation. His legs are short and stocky resembling a Corgi's build. Salinger entered the Lewis and Clark Humane Society on 01/14. Salinger is still a puppy and it shows. He loves to play with squeaky toys, ropes and balls as he self entertains. He's a very loyal dog as he bonds tightly with his person. Salinger's best day would be spending it with you as he's very personable and attentive to humans.  Salinger went out on trial with someone that was unable to physically care for him but she did report that he did ok with other dogs. At the shelter he's very stressed in this environment and he's typically reactive to dogs on leash.  Due to his inability to cope with shelter life we have not had him in play group with other dogs. Once he is out of his kennel for over an hour he calms and walks by other dogs with no reaction.  Our Play Group Specialists believes he could live with another dog but it would take some work integrating him into a home with a playful, easy going skilled dog accompanied by a dog savvy owner. He cannot live with cats. When it comes to people he is a social butterfly. He's good with kids, adults and strangers. He does some jumping up at times and will occasionally nip clothing when he gets playful or excited but is improving on this.  Salinger is considered a high energy dog but he relaxes beautifully away from the shelter. He enjoys exercising and his favorite things are hiking, running and playing ball. He will need mental and physical stimulation as he's very intelligent and treat motivated. Sal knows how to sit, come and stay for 3 seconds and is working on shake. He's considered a fast learner.  If you would love a dog that would be a true new best friend then please email or contact the Lewis and Clark Humane Society  at 406-442-1660 about our pal Salinger!  Contact Info: Salinger is a resident of the Lewis and Clark Humane Society in Helena, Montana; phone number is 442-1660 or contact  Loreen phone: 439-7841 » read more


Diesel is a drop dead GORGEOUS boy!!!! Diesel is around 2 yrs old. He is paper thin right now, but gaining weight daily, from being starved...he is also starved for affection. He gets along with most all other dogs, just wants to play, not sure about cats, and he will chase horses, so control and training is needed. He is great in the crate in the house, very quiet, when he is out, he just wants to be with you...he does know sit, and he loves to be by your side. He has no manners, likes to jump on you, we are working on that. So no small kids, he may knock them down. » read more

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
