Meet Steel! As you can tell, he is all smiles and ready to meet you. Steel is a 3-year old Shepherd mix that is a bundle of energy. Steel loves to play and run in our yards at the shelter, so if you have a home where Steel can play he would thrive. Steel would be an even more perfect dog if he had a buddy. He would love a dog playmate at his new home to show him the ropes.

Cecelia needs your help 😢

Our Animal Control team was dispatched yesterday to a dog who was badly hit by a car and who had wedged herself under another car that stopped to help her. Cecelia was in shock, had a fractured tibia that had broken through her skin and was suffering from road rash, a laceration to her tongue and a broken tooth.

Thankfully, our team acted quickly and got Cecelia to the shelter where she was immediately assessed. Cecelia was put on oxygen and fluid support to correct the shock she was in, she was also given good pain control, and had an abdominal ultrasound to confirm that she was not in immediate danger of death.

Once Cecelia was stable, she was transferred to GSVS Pet Hospital where they will continue fluid therapy to correct her shock, manage her pain, and begin wound therapy and aggressive IV antibiotics to prevent infection. Her leg will be splinted until she is stable and we can develop a plan for surgical correction. Cecelia's owner was found through her microchip and he has made the decision, in her best interest, to surrender her to our care.

We're seeking donations to support sweet Cecelia's medical journey - it will be a long road for this girl to feel better, but with your help, we know she'll get there ❤

You can make a donation to support Cecelia, and other animals that need extra care, on Facebook or by clicking here: bit.ly/3Ck9mgL

***This is a courtesy cross post for Liberty Humane Society. All questions regarding this dog should be directed to them.***

One thing everyone at the Liberty Humane Society can agree on is that Mator is an amazing dog! From his gorgeous face to his relaxed temperament, Mator is a dream German Shepherd.

He is so social. If he could spend the day laying down and getting pets he would! But that doesn’t deter from his athletic energy. His favorite thing to do is play catch or chew on sticks that he finds on his walks.

He is easily losing the weight he had when he arrived to us and slimming up to be a muscular dog! If knowing that Mator is gorgeous, social, and athletic wasn’t enough he is also incredibly intelligent, coming to the shelter already knowing commands and easily picking up on new ones.

They give a full 20 percent of the profit in their delicious coffees to a group of rescue organizations, each quarter. They have committed to us for a year. There’s a German Shepherd on the packaging of every bag, and if you’d like to try it, you can borrow our coupon code, INSIDER. It’s good for 10 percent off, through Sunday. Also, shipping is always free in the U.S. from German Shepherd Coffee Company.

This sweetheart needs a home! The shelter is no place for her. If you have a love for German Shepherds and want to give her the retirement home she deserves, then come meet her!

COCO
#3150
Female
9 years old
German Shepherd
118 pounds
~children over 12 may be acceptable if they are careful of Coco's space
~never lived with cats, children or other dogs

Hi, my name is Coco! I was surrendered to the shelter for no fault of my own, and am ready to find my new home! I have not lived with dogs, cats, or kids before so all introductions should be taken slowly. Due to behavior seen here, I CANNOT go to a home with children under 12yrs old. I showed some minor resource guarding here at the shelter, so I prefer to have some space when eating my food. This behavior may or may not continue in a home environment. I already know some commands like 'sit' and 'paw' and I'd love to learn even more! If you think you have room in your heart for an older gal like me, then come to the shelter today!

Our Story

Training Rescue Dogs, Inc. provides training and rehabilitation to rescue dogs. We locate and hire competent, experienced trainers who evaluate and rehabilitate the dogs so they can successfully transition into homes. These homes allow them thrive; providing their families with years of companionship and joy. Many German shepherds never find a home because they display undesirable, but easily corrected, behavioral challenges. Tragically, these dogs are then passed over by other organizations and then euthanized. This is a terrible loss. Training and rehabilitation for these dogs is an unmet need among most animal rescues and shelters. At Training Rescue Dogs, we don't believe in giving up on dogs; we believe in giving them the future." We are a "Different Breed of Rescue."

I have a question on training a rescue dog to not run away. My son rescued a dog after the Puerto Rico hurricane and she's a great dog. Youngish, but I believe full grown. She stays indoor and has a connecting dog run. She loves to run with my daughter in law on her leash. Only issue they are having is she will bolt if off leash and gets out the front door. They've tried to train her with an electric fence, but the dog just sprints right through it. When on the leash she avoids the perimeter knowing where not to go, but off leash, all bets are off. Any tips?
do you assist in re-homing GSDs
Plz help. Shepherd in need of good home ASAP. Caveats: He is heart worm positive but we can provide $600. to rehabilitate him. He is a sweet/but sometimes aloof dog, PLZ help us save him!
Hey TRD, Zach wanted to check in and tell u Merry Christmas! He’s still loving life and we love him more everyday. Thanks for doing what you do for the dogs !!
Merry Christmas from Joey, formerly Yellow Puppy from River’s litter. He will be 2 next week and has been an awesome dog! Thank you Training Rescue Dogs! We would love to see some pics of Joey’s 10 brothers and sisters!
Happy 1st Adoption Day to Dutch. A year ago today, we drove up to pick up a German Shepherd puppy from Training Rescue Dogs, a wonderful rescue in Va who stepped in to save him from a local shelter when no one else would. Thank you. It's been a wonderful whirlwind ever since. He's sweet, affectionate and silly. And he still has enough drive to power a small country. His favorite game is fetch with the chuck-it ball. He loves all of his siblings completely. Irwin (beagle) is his little buddy and they are frequently spotted running around the house together. Seeing the size disparity as those two put their paws up on the bay window to look out is hysterical. Scout he worships and brings toys to lay at her feet. Those two like looking for squirrels and patrolling the yard together. But the way he treats his sister Hanna is adorable. She is "special needs" and he is utterly gentle and considerate of her. I sometimes catch him sweetly removing grass or a twig or a leaf she's brought in on herself. He has complete patience for her. She's a little slow and he's been taught "ladies first" when it comes to treats. He just patiently watches and waits while she first sniffs the treat in someone's hand and then tries to figure out how to pick up said treat. He knows his turn is next so he simply watches her try to figure out how to eat a treat. But the sweetest thing he does around her is that if she wanders into a game of fetch, he checks to see where she is at and puts himself in front of her when the ball is being thrown. He doesn't do this for the others because he knows that they would get out of the way. Poor Hanna would likely just get plunked in the head. Tonight we will open his gifts and have his cake. I'll post photos. Thank you TRD for this wonderful addition to our family.
Happy Fathers Day to Kaiser!!!! From Joey
