IDGSR welcomes Lexi into the safety of the rescue!!!

Lexi is a 2 yr. old female German Shepherd dog mix who weighs 78 lbs. She was literally minutes away from being euthanized at a high kill shelter in Memphis and was rescued at the last minute by 2 caring people. Lexi has already started basic obedience training and her foster parents say she learns very quickly. She is fine with dogs 20 lb. and up with a slow introduction but with small dogs or yippee dogs she needs supervision. Not cat tested yet but will be soon. Lexi is housebroken and kennel trained although she prefers a dog cushion to the kennel. She loves to run and play with tennis balls and she also loves being part of the family. She will do best with children 8 and up. Lexi has now started advanced training which will continue until she is adopted. Lexi is a happy, friendly and well-trained dog who is looking for a family to love.

About Imminent Danger German Shepherd Rescue - Maine Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

Imminent Danger German Shepherd Rescue started in January 2011 rescuing German Shepherds and High Content Mixes from the Imminent Danger they were in sitting on Death Row in High Kill Animal Control Facilities in TN, NC, SC, GA, AL, KY & VA. Hundreds of Dogs lives have been spared and we've never worked so hard in our lives to save these wonderful kids. Our process from saving these kids includes 30+ years of experience in working breed dogs. We conduct Safer Tests with all dogs to determine the abilities of the dogs so that we can match the right dog to the right family. We do not shove our dogs out the door. We do multiple videos of the dogs as well to our potential adopters. We disclose all positive and negative behavior traits so our adopters can work on any training the dog may need. IDGSR starts the rehabilitation and training with these wonderful kids and our adopters are part of the team of folks who help to ensure these kids will never suffer another day of hardship in their lives again. IDGSR will not take Aggressive Dogs into the Rescue.
If you have ever loved a German Shepherd then you will know where our hearts are to save these dogs from a certain death. It is our goal to save more but we need wonderful qualified families who want to save a life and welcome a new family member. We continue the work with our adopters even after adoption, we help with training and advice and counsel. IDGSR's staff look forward to hearing from you. Help us to find your new devoted and loyal best friend.

Our Adoption Process...

see our website @
our adoption fees are based on age of the dog, from $150-$300. All dogs travel north on a paid Professional USDA transporter. There is a $125 transport + $25 for the Veterinarian Health check that all dogs are required to have before their trip to their new families.
All dogs are fully vetted before making their trip, have vaccinations, spayed or neutered and microchipped.
All of our dogs are fostered in East Tennessee and transports leave out weekly.
