About Our Rescue Group:

Middle Tennessee German Shepherd Rescue is dedicated to the mission of providing medical care, temperament evaluation, rehabilitation, training and placement of German Shepherd Dogs and other herding/working breeds. Our program includes dogs rescued from shelters, dogs found as strays by individuals, as well as owner-surrenders needing to be re-homed. Prior to adoption, all dogs are spayed/neutered, brought up-to-date on all vaccinations, are heartworm tested and micro-chipped. Our extremely high placement success rate results from carefully matching the right dog with the right family; Our goal is to provide German Shepherd Dogs permanent homes with qualified owners.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
