Marzipan's Story...
Hey there, I'm Marzipan! I'm a 6 month old Shepard/Husky Mix. My foster mom brags about how wonderful I am at her house. I learned house training right away and I don't make a fuss when it's time to go into my crate. I currently live with three other dogs and I get along with all of them. I'm even gentle with the two senior dogs in the home. I'm a fairly young pup but I act very relaxed and don't have hyper puppy antics. I love going on walks and romping around the backyard with my dog friends. I would enjoy going on summer adventures with you like long hikes or just hang out in the park for a picnic. I'm an awesome dog and can't wait to find my forever person to spend the rest of my life with. Could that be you? Watch the video of me at the shelter the day I was saved!


All of our pets start their journey in Memphis Tennessee where they remain in loving foster families until they are adopted. We have home visit coordinators in both Nashville & Chicago. If you live in one of these cities and see a animal you love, we will work with you and a professional transport to get that animal to your home.

In order to qualify for ALIVE’s program all of the following steps must be met: • You must be at least 24 years of age and be able to provide ALIVE with proof of age. • Any current pets must be up to date on vaccinations, and be spayed/neutered. Exceptions to this will only be considered if proof of a medical explanation is provided. • If you currently rent, you must provide a landlord’s phone number and a copy of your executed lease. • All members of the family living in the home where the animal will be placed must be interviewed. • Allow an ALIVE Rescue Memphis representative into your home for a visit to insure that your home is safe for the potential new dog or cat. • Be able and willing to spend the time and money necessary to provide training, medical treatment and proper care for a pet. • Currently, the requested donation to adopt a dog over 4 months of age is $250.00, a dog under 4 months of age is $275.00 and a cat is $150.00.

Our adoption application can be found at http://www.aliverescuememphis.org/adoptionapplication/

Due to the extremely high volume of inquiries we receive, we ask that you submit an application immediately to start the adoption process. We try very hard to include all pertinent information in our bios. We are excited to help you find your new family member. However, ALIVE Rescue Memphis is operated 100% by volunteers. We want to spend our time saving dogs and assisting those adopters who have taken the time to complete an application. Thank you for understanding.

Breed selection is done in conjunction with two local vets and is not to be considered a guarantee but rather a well educated decision from well qualified staff.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Marzipan, a Memphis German Shepherd Dog/Husky dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog/Husky for sale in Memphis, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog/Husky dog from a breeder in Memphis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Memphis already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Memphis breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even German Shepherd Dog/Husky breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog/Husky rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Memphis paves the way for another one to be saved.
