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

Raina was saved from living in a bad situation where her owners did not care for or interact with her. Raina was neglected and is now in a foster home getting the care, food, attention, and love she deserves. Raina is a large, medium to high energy, spayed, female German Shepherd. She is 2.5 – 3 years old and black with tan on all 4 paws.

Weight: 78 pounds

Housebroken and Crate Trained: has free roam of house at night and has never had an accident in the house and has not messed with/chewed on/tore up anything inside or outside the house. Raina is crate trained but she does not like being inside the crate and would much rather be around her people.

Kids: has met foster family’s grandkids, ages 4 & 7 and great with the kids. Raina loved giving kisses and getting lots of pets. Raina did not jump on the kids or try to knock them down in anyway. Older kids would be best due to Raina’s large size and high energy level.

Cats: absolutely NO CATS. Raina does not get along with the cat in her foster home.

Dogs: gets along well with foster family’s submissive, 6 year old, neutered, 85 pound, male black lab. Raina is an alpha female and bonds very quickly with her person/s. She can be the only dog or she can be with a submissive male dog.

Favorite Toys: Kong, bones (knuckle, center, femur), cow hooves, and any durable squeaky toys. Raina loves playing with soft, stuffed squeaky toys, but they do not last long and you can find Raina and the stuffed toy by following the path of stuffing she pulls out and leaves around the house.

Water: has not been exposed to

Riding in Car/SUV/Truck: jumps right into the vehicle and lays down during the ride

Other: Raina is learning how to play fetch and she loves to chase the Kong, soccer ball, or any other ball, but she has not learned how to drop the ball at her foster family’s feet. Raina has never been properly socialized with people and with other dogs, due to neglect from her previous owners. Raina is working on her manners and learning how to be calm in the house, interact with people, and interact/play with other dogs. At night, while the foster family watches TV, Raina can be found on the couch cuddling with her foster family. Raina is working on basic commands and knows “sit.” Raina is not food aggressive and is fed in the same room as her doggie foster brother and Raina’s foster mom can pet/hug Raina as she eats with absolutely no reaction. Raina is very smart and would do well with having basic obedience training. Raina is Heartworm negative and is on monthly heartworm prevention. Raina is on monthly flea/tick prevention

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.
