The following German Shepherds
and German Shepherd mixes are being fostered by other rescue groups or individuals in the Sacramento
area. I have not seen or evaluated most of these dogs, so
I can not guarantee their temperament or health. However, because rescue groups such as
mine or individuals rescuing on their own are offering these dogs
for adoption, I am posting these dogs as a courtesy to those rescuers. As
with rescuing a dog from GSRSV, you will also have the benefit of knowing the
temperament from its foster caretaker (in most cases).

is a beautiful, approx 5-yo spayed female GSD who is very friendly
Remarkably, given what a great dog Bella is, she was left behind in
a vacant house after the people who were living there illegally were
evicted. A realtor discovered Bella in the back yard when she came
to see the house. There was a note inside that said "Friendly dog
named Bella outside."A couple in Stockton have been caring for Bella
since July 7 but don't intend to keep her.
Bella loves to play ball. She
responds well to basic commands such as "sit" and "come." It's clear
that Bella was loved and not abused, even though she was abandoned.
Bella has yet to be observed
around other dogs or cats.
If you would like more info
about Bella or would like to meet her, please contact Kathryn
Vetsula at KVatsula@loandepot.com or 209-609-9000.
Bella is located in Stockton. A
$100 adoption fee is required, per GSRSV's insistence.
Hi! My name is Lilly. There’s
something really special about me! I have some wheels to help me get
around and my foster mom says I’m as happy as a clam cruising from
place to place.
I’m a 10 year old GSD and of course will need a very special
I get along famously with my foster dog siblings and am very
appropriate with other dogs.
A lot of chaos makes me want to try and calm things down. I acted as
the fun police when my foster family had an overnight puppy guest
and I'll try and settle “ruff” housing; so I’ll do best with a
mellow household and an adopter who understands my need for quiet
time and will keep me away from the ruckus. Puppies and small
children would not be a good match for me.
I have nice house manners and will let you know when I need to go
out. I am not what you’d call a Velcro dog and I’m not needy but I
like to be in the same vicinity as my people. And I definitely don’t
want to be outside alone.
I do great at the dog doc and ride really well in the car.
I am friendly and social girl. I’ve met older children and do fine
with them. My foster mom says I’m really easy to have around. I love
my soft cool beds and enjoy just relaxing with my people.
If you’re looking for a chill girl to keep you company, maybe we can
I’ll be waiting with my foster family in Lodi.

Shepherd Rescue for info about adopting Lily:
is a beautiful 1-2 yo spayed female GSD available for adoption at
the Del Norte County animal shelter in Crescent City, CA. Holly is
very loving, athletic and somewhat shy. She loves to be handled and
shows her gratitude with kisses. She would be best suited to an
active family or person.
Holly was brought in as a stray
to the shelter on 4-12-21, She seemed to be well cared for but no
one came for this sweet-natured girl. Holly has been a bit
overwhelmed in the shelter environment and, as happens with many
GSDs in confinement, is beginning to shut down.
Holly is good on a leash but a
little skittish with new sounds and surroundings. She is very
athletic and enjoys running in our play yard and chasing a ball!
Holly is a beauty, and should
make a wonderful companion.
For more information about
Holly please contact the Del Norte County Animal Shelter.at (707)
464-7235 They pre-screen prospective adopters and require an
adoption application be filled out. (Scroll down to about the
middle of the page.)

is a beautiful 3-yo female GSD who is sweet and intelligent. Sasha
has a gorgeous black/silver coat, which is somewhat rare among
Sasha enjoys going on walks, being with people, getting belly rubs
and eating treats. She likes other dogs, is afraid of cats (ie, she
is OK with them), and loves riding in the car. She would love a
large yard to roam, play in, lounge and relax! Sasha loves kids and
would be a great family dog!
Sasha is at the private, non-profit shelter “Jelly’s Place” in San
Pablo, CA. For Sasha’s full adoption profile, see
