Facts about Viking

  • Breed: German Shepherd Dog Mix
  • Color: Brown/Chocolate - With Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male

Viking came to us with a terrible injury to his foot and part of his leg. We've spent over $750 on his leg and will be a bit more when he gets neutered next week and finishes his vetting. His injury was awful looking and most of his skin was missing. We do not know what happened but in the last month it's healing well and he will be completely healed in just a few more weeks but we can put this sweet obnoxious kid up online to start looking for his new family.
Viking is good with other dogs and a nice energetic female dog would be great for him, He likes to jump on you a lot and we are working on this but he will need a patient adopter who is willing to do his standard obedience work with him. He has a happy sweet disposition and gives kisses freely. Little children might be a bit too much for him as he likely would plow them over. He is super pretty and super puppy, like all puppies are, We estimate him to be about a year old, Mr. oh so full of himself will need a patient adopter to work with him every day. He loves the attention and we are confident with a dedicated new parent he will be a successfully well adjusted fur child.

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.
