Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are located in Cleveland, Ohio.
We prefer to adopt to homes in Northeast Ohio, but we are flexible with respect to location. Our main priority is to find the best possible match for these great dogs.

About Our Rescue Group:

We work very closely with local Rescue Organizations, including Tracking Lucky Dogs Rescue and Lake Erie German Shepherd Rescue. Occasionally, these Rescues come across dogs that have a difficult times being placed in regular home environments (with young kids, other animals) for various reasons including high levels of energy and high prey drive, coupled with lack of previous training.

That is where we step in. After a preliminary temperament screening, the dogs are taken through a structured play-and-train program. They go through basic or advanced obedience (depending on the dogs maturity and previous exposure to training), with emphasis on off-leash recall and off-leash stationary positions (down-stay, sit-stay).

Our goal is to help them find the best possible path in life, to fulfill their potential and become the superstars they were meant to be.

Come Meet our Pets:

Call or email to schedule a meet-and-greet with one of our dogs. All adoption events are held on site at our training center.

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption fees vary from dog to dog.
All our dogs are obedience-trained, house-trained, up to date on vaccines and altered.

You must have previous experience with the particular breed listed. These dogs are exceptional young adults (stable, social, confident) with strong working drives, and they need a structured home environment. They would excel in homes with active lifestyles or involved in dog sports.

References will be checked and a home visit will be required. An adoption contract will be signed after application approval.

Adopters are strongly encouraged to continue the training of their new family member. Our adoption fees include two free training sessions with High Drive Pups (http://highdrivepups.com).

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
