Champ is a male German Shepherd who is approximately 10 yr. old. Before coming to the rescue, Champ spent his whole life as a backyard breeding dog. His owner paid no attention to him or cared for him in any way. When Champ was too old to breed anymore, he was brought to a kill shelter. Now that he is in a loving foster home he is safe and enjoying life for the first time. He's getting nutritious food and living indoors with a family. He loves his foster mom and follows her all around the house. Champ is very loving with people and just so grateful to have this life and not the existence he had before. He is a little older but gets around well and wants to join in the fun with the other dogs. Champ would be a great dog for retirees and would love to have a family of his own to love.

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 @
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.
