Poppy is a pretty black and tan female German Shepherd who is about 3.5 years old. Her last owner passed away and she was left to wander loose in the country for 2 weeks before she jumped into the car of a Good Samaritan. At that point she came into our rescue where she has learned how to walk on a leash, sit, and we are working on stay. Poppy is great riding in the car, is kennel trained, is good with other dogs and loves people including respectful older children. She loves to play with other dogs and enjoys lots of attention from her owners. She is not good with cats. Poppy would love to join her new owners on walks, hikes, playing ball, and cuddling. She sure hopes Santa will bring her a great new home in time for Christmas

If you are interested in meeting/adopting Poppy, please fill out our adoption questionnaire which you can find at

About Second Chance German Shepherd Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Second Chance German Shepherd Rescue is a non-profit, volunteer-run, foster-based German Shepherd Dog rescue serving the greater Bay Area and Sacramento/Roseville regions of Northern California. Our primary focus is rescuing German Shepherd Dogs from life threatening situations in overcrowded shelters where they are in danger of being put to sleep. We adopt our dogs into loving, responsible permanent homes. German Shepherd Dogs in our care are spayed or neutered, and receive basic veterinary care while they await placement in their permanent homes. We work with area shelters and other rescue groups to develop a network of support for German Shepherd Dogs in need.
