IDGSR WELCOMES FARRAH INTO THE SAFETY OF THE RESCUE!!!

Farrah ended up in a shelter in E. TN and in trouble. She did not care for the animal control officer (a man) however she was able to be handled by an older couple and a woman who came to the shelter. She seems fearful of men and not confident around them at all. It is evident that some man was not nice to her at all. We have seen this many times before with both male and female Shepherds who have come into the rescue and we have worked with all of them to help them overcome this.

Farrah is approx. 2 yrs. old and just adores women. She is sweet, affectionate, loving and gives kisses freely. Ideally we would love to place her in a home where a woman is her caregiver, one who has an understanding of domestic abuse, at least we believe that is what has happened to her at some point. She will need a patient adopter who will help her with this. Farrah has met one man at the rescue that she was afraid of initially but when he fed her come cheese, she decided he was ok and gave him kisses. Farrah is fine with another large breed male dog. She has some decent manners and does not jump on you or act obnoxious but standard obedience work is always advised with any rescue dog. Farrah had a rough start in her young life but she is learning more at the rescue every day and wants to find a family of her own to love.

If you are interested in adopting Farrah, please feel free to fill out an application on our website.

About Imminent Danger German Shepherd Rescue - Maine Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

Imminent Danger German Shepherd Rescue started 5 yrs. ago rescuing German Shepherds and High Content Mixes from the Imminent Danger where they were sitting on Death Row in High Kill Animal Control Facilities in TN, NC, SC,KY, VA, GA & AL.Over 1000 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 @ http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/idgsr.html
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 $140 transport + $50 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 Tennessee and transports leave out weekly.
