Meet Beau! Great things really do come in small packages! Beau, an All American Mixed Rescue Dog , was found on the mean streets of Baltimore with serious wounds indicating that he was being used as BAIT to train fighting dogs. With the proper medical treatment and time to heal, he is ready to go to his forever home. With every thing Beau has been through, he is a total lovebug and happy, happy, happy! He actually grins! He wants nothing more than to spend time with you and be your shadow. He is a sturdy and solid dog (38 lbs) , approximately 2 yrs. old , that can curl himself into the tiniest ball and go to sleep right next to you. He doesn't care if it is the couch or your bed! He does snore, but then who doesn't!

Beau is very smart and highly trainable. He wants a job and wants to please. After basic obedience training, he would make a great agility dog or frisbee-catching dog! He is fearless, curious and an attention magnet with a huge personality . Beau loves dogs and children. He can have bursts of energy so he would probably be best adopted into home with older children and other dogs that are patient with puppy like tendencies. He is crate-trained and house-trained. He is also up-to-date on all of his shots and neutered, tested negative for Lyme disease and heartworm. His fecal and urine tests also came back negative. With all of the medical attention that Beau has received, he still loves going to the vet and is not afraid of shots or nail trims. He also LOVES car rides! Beau carries a large scar on his right side as a reminder to all of his previous life , and the great resiliency of our Canine Companions .

Beau is one special dog that needs a forever home. He will LOVE you and make you laugh out loud with his antics! When you meet this handsome boy you'll fall in LOVE!

About Shepherds to Love

About Our Rescue Group...

Shepherds to Love is a small group of volunteers dedicated to saving German Shepherd Dogs (GSDs), GSD mixes as well as other shepherds from abuse, abandonment, and uncaring owners. Our dogs usually come from animal shelters throughout the country, rescued when their time is up at the shelter. Our mission is to find safe, loving, caring, permanent homes for our beautiful dogs that deserve a second chance at happiness. Our dogs will only be placed in homes where they will have indoor access and be an integral part of a family. Please keep in mind that German Shepherds are not the breed of choice for everyone, and we are committed to finding the perfect home for our rescued dogs. We provide training assistance and support after the adoption to all our rescued dogs.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are a small group of dedicated volunteers who rescue, care for and rehome unwanted and abused pets. We have no physical shelter location, our dogs are typically cared for in foster homes or temprarily boarded in kennels. We would love for you to come meet a pet you are interested in at its foster home. Please fill out an Adoption Application from if you would like to visit one of our fosters. Please contact us at and an adoption application will be e-mailed to you. Your application must be approved before a visit is scheduled.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process involves several steps to ensure that the pet you adopt is the best match for your family.

Step 1 - Adoption Application: The adoption process begins with the Adoption Application. Anyone wishing to adopt one of our dogs must first fill out an Adoption Application Form. Upon receipt, your application will be reviewed and veterinarian as well as personal references will be checked. Please contact us at and an adoption application will be e-mailed to you.

Step 2 - Phone Interview: After your application has been reviewed and references have been checked, if you are approved you will be contacted by phone to discuss the animal you wish to adopt.

Step 3 - Meeting the Dog(s): Following the phone interview, arrangements will be made for you to meet the dog you wish to adopt. This meeting usually takes place at the home where the animal is being fostered. If you have other dogs in your home we strongly recommend that you bring along your dog(s) to this meeting to make sure that all animals are compatible. Additional meetings may be arranged at your home, if necessary. All household members must be present at the time of the visit.
Step 4 - Home Visit: Following your visit with the dog you apply to adopt, we will schedule a home visit for one of volunteers to come to your home. A home visit is required to ensure that a proper and safe environment will be provided for the dog you wish to adopt.

Step 5 - Adoption Contract: Once the adoption has been approved we will contact you again to finalize the adoption (this can also be done at the time of the home visit or meeting the animal, as long as all other requirements have been met). At this time you will be asked to review and sign the Adoption Agreement Contract and settle the adoption fee.
