8/22/17 AVAILABLE AROUND THANKSGIVING PENDING COMPLETION OF MEDICAL TREATMENT - Pungo is a beautiful, friendly male GSD. He is socializing nicely with other dogs - both small and large, respectful of cats, and good with kids (although he did want to lick the crumbs off the face of my neighbor's toddler).  He's quietly confident and a pleasure to have around. He came to VGSR when his elderly owner was no longer able to care for him. He's a little underweight right now, so his long lanky frame make him look like a 'wolf', but he's such a gentleman that he can eat right next to his foster sisters without any issues! Pungo is being actively treated for heartworms, so he can't yet go to his forever home. Current estimates from the vet are that he'll be in great shape in about 3 months (around Thanksgiving). Take a peek at his 'Good Boy' manners at his recent vet visit. We will keep you posted on his progress!

9/22/17 Pungo has successfully completed the first of a series of 3 treatments for heartworms. He did great, but has to keep quiet until his treatments are all done. His prognosis is still very good!

About Virginia German Shepherd Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We provide a valuable service by finding good homes for the German Shepherd Dogs in our care. In the seven plus years that we have been in existence, we have found homes for over 2,400 deserving dogs. We are currently enlisting active volunteers to help with the task of placing some really wonderful, but homeless, German Shepherd Dogs. Our goal is to place all GSDs that are accepted into our Rescue in loving homes in which the GSD and the family will thrive together.

Our Adoption Process...

An applicant first submits an application form with a non-refundable $10.00 (cash or check only) processing fee. VGSR reviews the application, then schedules an interview and home visit during which a number of questions are asked and the home is reviewed to be sure there is a contained/safe yard, and to meet the family involved. Once the application is approved, the applicant is asked to submit a $250.00 (cash or check ONLY) minimum adoption donation to VGSR to help defray the costs of getting the dog fully vetted and ready to be adopted, and the adoption is completed.
