Meet Maddie!  Maddie is a 3 year old, 70 lb German Shepherd.  She’s extremely friendly with everyone she encounters. Adults, other dogs (especially little dogs), and children. We haven’t seen her around any cats yet.  She likes going on her daily walks every morning, she seems very happy and cheerful. She walks well on leash, is attentive to commands, and wants to please. Great temperament. As a GS, she’s smart and obedient. As far as commands she understands the basic, “no”, “wait”, “stay”. Because she has hip dysplasia, it’s difficult for her to sit, she will sit very slowly or lie down to relax.  She is also potty trained.  She LOVES trips to the dog beach and dog parks. She plays with all dogs and likes to be in the water.

*Maddie has been diagnosed with the early stages of moderate hip dysplasia. She is responding well to glucosamine and chrondroitin supplements. This is a typical condition for the breed and should be monitored. She also has mild immune-medicated gingivitis.  No treatment is recommended at this point, but she should be fed small, moistened kibble or wet food and re-evaluated in a year. Maddie is spayed, microchipped and current on her vaccinations.  Her adoption fee is $250


All of our dogs are in private volunteer foster homes, and as such these individuals are most qualified to answer any questions regarding the dog.

We do not have a central shelter or kennel locations - you must make a private one-on-one meet and greet appointment with each individual dog at the foster family's convenience.  To protect our foster families' privacy, we must have an APPROVED adoption application on file before we release their contact information.

All of our dogs are fixed (spayed/neutered) and up to date on shots. We have a 2 week foster-to-adopt period to make sure the dog is a fit for your family. Adoption fees vary from dog-to-dog.  

Please note that an approved application DOES NOT guarantee that the dog will be placed with you. The final decision rests with our fosters as they know the dogs the best, and please be aware that there may be other applicants interested in the same dog. We continue accepting applications on a dog until the dog is with the new adoptive family in their home.

Thank you for visiting our dogs located at

About Second Chance Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Second Chance Dog Rescue was formed to fulfill a desperate need in the community to Rescue, Rehabilitate & Re-home homeless dogs from the over-crowded local shelters, and from families who can no longer take care of their dogs (on a case-by-case basis only).

Our program is based on foster care, and all rescued dogs spend their first days at a loving foster home where they receive personalized care. As part of our program, we ensure that all dogs are vaccinated, are spayed or neutered, and have been socialized by their foster family. In addition, Second Chance Dog Rescue provides support for potential new owners and monitors progress for both new pet parents and their adopted dogs. This helps guarantee that our dogs go to good, loving, forever homes.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Visit our website at for a list of upcoming Adoption Events. Additionally, our foster parents may schedule one on one meetings with potential owners and provide a personalized adoption experience.

Our Adoption Process...

We require an Adoption Questionnaire to be completed - whether online or in person - before meeting any of our dogs. Upon approval of the Questionnaire, a potential adopter will be required to complete an Adoption Contract and pay adoption fees. All of our adoptions start with the first 2 weeks as a 'trial' period, to ensure the adoption is a good fit. Adoption of a puppy may require a refundable training deposit, which will be refunded upon completion of training with a Certfied dog trainer, and submission of certificate of completion to our office.
