Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:Most of our dogs and puppies are adopted by families living in MD, PA, NJ, NY, CT, NH & ME!
About Our Rescue Group:Legacy German Shepherd Rescue- NE is a liaison rescue for the Legacy German Shepherd Rescue group we work with in the south. The dogs all come from the efforts of our affiliate southern rescue and their wonderful dedicated foster homes that take care of these babies for so long before coming northeast. The majority of dogs in the south will be gassed within 7 days of being dropped off at a shelter- if they are reported as strays. They are "pulled" and placed with a private foster family until all vet work is complete and they have a clean bill of health.
Come Meet our Pets:We do not have one physical location. Our dogs and puppies are kept in private foster homes in Mississippi for 3 weeks or longer, as part of a family, to help prepare them for transition into their northern forever homes and also to have enough time to have them receive all the necessary vetting we require before placing them with an adoptive family, for their health and safety.
You are very welcome to speak with the the foster family about the dog/puppy you are interested in after we receive your Application!
Our Adoption Process:PLEASE complete an Application! if you are ready to adopt! If there is more than one decision maker in the home, all of them should be in agreement! Thank you for your understanding and consideration and for helping the dogs and puppies in need!
Preference is given to those who have submitted an Application!!
