Sometimes unforeseen circumstances force German Shepherd owners to seek a new home for their dog(s). This page serves to link such individuals with potential new owners--and to help prevent the tragedy of owners surrendering their pets to a shelter.

GSRSV is not involved in the adoption process of dogs listed on this page. Individuals interested in adopting a dog listed below should contact the owner directly at the phone number or e-mail listed. Because GSRSV is has not evaluated the dogs listed here, I cannot take responsibility for their temperament or health.

If you are an owner interested in listing your German Shepherd Dog(s) here, please see How to Place a Dog Through GSRSV

"Rue" is an incredibly sweet, approximately 8 year old, 50-lb White GSD mix (possibly GSD/Queensland Heeler). This gentle soul has seen more than her fair share of difficulty in her life. Rue was originally a farm dog living the life on 5-acres of land until her owner passed away. 3-months later, Rue was found with two other dogs locked in a horse stable in deplorable conditions. 

Rue was lucky to find a new home with her current owner. Initially she experienced a bit of separation anxiety, not uncommon in rescues. But once she adjusted to “city living” she settled nicely into her new home.

Life has taken a turn for Rue and her mom. An unexpected move is forcing Rue’s mom to find a new home for this sweet girl. 

Rue is looking for a loving home where she can snuggle as much as possible with her new people. She enjoys walks and when you pick up her leash and say “walk” she wiggles around in excited anticipation. Rue socializes well with dogs but she is not cat-friendly at all. Click here for a video of Rue running with her mom and several other dogs at GSRSV's rescue ranch.
If you are interested in meeting this sweet girl please contact Lisa at either 916-214-2682 or

Rue is located in San Francisco.
