You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.German Shepherd dogs, as well as the other herding breeds that we have in rescue, are highly active, energetic, working breeds. They require considerable vetting, exercise, socialization, training, leadership and mental stimuli in order to be well-adjusted, well-balanced, and well-mannered dogs. Even if you exercise and play with your dog daily in your fenced yard, you MUST still take your dog out on daily walks and outings in order to work on his/her leash skills, manners, and social skills. These breeds make great additions to active families who will pamper them, but who will also work with them, as they are smart dogs who need leadership, structure, plenty of activity and mental stimulation. If you are new to German Shepherds (and other herding breeds), please research the breed to make sure this is the dog for you. We ask that you consider the time and financial commitment that your German Shepherd (or other herding breed) dog will require before applying for one. Please review the section on our website (www.heartlandgsrescue.org) 'Is a HUGS Dog Right for You?' for additional information. Levi is a very loving 2yr 9 month-old Dutchie. He loves to run around and play! Levi does well on walks. He does well with other dogs AFTER being introduces slowly and allowing them to meet on Levi's terms.  Levi does great at meals. he is very well mannered and respectful. Levi is very people oriented. He wants to be where his people are whether this is in bed or on the couch. If you are watching TV, he will try to either be in your lap or cuddled right next to you. When its bedtime, he will snuggle right next to you and provide lots of warmth! Levi's favorite toys at the moment are the Chuck It sticks or anything he can play tug a war with his humans. While he is gentle you may have to remind him to be gentle when he tries to latch on to his end of the toy. This is when he gets most vocal. He will let you know if you aren’t being fast enough for him when he’s ready to play, or if his sibling is trying to hog his ball/ toy (he will tell on her!). However, he is good about sharing toys (and smart!) and will often pick a different toy. He will use it to distract his sibling with it, so he can steal the one he originally had and wanted back!  Levi is a young boy who especially needs his walks for the exercise, to help him unwind, and to keep up his social skills. He does well with a short walk in the morning and a longer one at night. If you miss the morning walk he will be a little more antsy when coming home from the workday until his evening walk. Levi really is a fabulous dog, very sweet and eager to learn. He's a lovable cuddler and a sweet goofball! He is a happy boy eager to share his love with the right family who will have time to continue working with him. Levi doesn't love his crate and would do best with pet parents who work from home or who are retired, and as an only dog, or with a playful female dog buddy his size.  Like any of our dogs, this gorgeous boy would make a great addition to an active home that will provide the love, structure, good leadership, activity and mental stimulation that this breed needs. Because of that, Levi's ideal owner will have prior GSD or other herding breed experience. Even if you exercise and play with your dog daily in your fenced yard, please remember that you MUST still take your dog out on daily walks and outings, in order to provide sufficient stimulation, ward off boredom, and work on leash skills, and manners. Levi's adoption fee is $350, all of which goes back into offseting our high-cost vetting expenses and rescuing more dogs.  We are a 100% volunteer-run rescue group and rely on adoption fees and donations to continue saving lives. Adoption fees include spay/neuter, current on age-appropriate vaccinations, fecal, deworming, flea/tick and heartworm preventative, heartworm tested if old enough (and treated if positive), and microchipped. Please visit http://heartlandgsrescue.rescuegroups.org/info/adoption for more information about our adoption process and requirements, and to apply.   Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.Please review the information in the 'About Us', 'Important Considerations' and 'Adopt' sections on our website menu, as it contains useful information about the breed, adoption fees, the adoption process and our requirements, and how meeting the dogs works.February 28, 2024, 4:02 am

Please review the section on our website (www.heartlandgsrescue.org) 'Is a HUGS Dog Right for You?' for additional information. Remi is a very sweet young German Shepherd whose previous family moved from a farm into town, and they didn't want indoor dogs. As a result, Remi was almost surrendered to the shelter, but luckily for her, a concerned relative stepped in and sought rescue for her. When Remi arrived, she was extremely emaciated -about 20 lbs underweight- and stressed out, possibly from living in boarding for weeks. This sweetie, who is friendly as can be with people of all ages, and who loves to play with other dogs, quickly adjusted to life in her foster home. Thanks to small, frequent meals, she eventually gained a healthy weight. She is house trained, crate-trained, walks well on a leash, and is a beautiful girl that is a delight to have as a companion in the house, and on outings. Remy enjoys Nylabones, treats, loves to go on walks, enjoys going to doggy daycare to play with other dogs, and rides well in the car. She is a sweet, sociable girl with a lovely temperament. She is so grateful to be taken care of, and loves to give sweet kisses! She is an active girl, sweet and affectionate, and in typical Shepherd fashion, she's always velcroed to you! Remy's adoption fee is $350, all of which goes back into offseting our high-cost vetting expenses and rescuing more dogs.  We are a 100% volunteer-run rescue group and rely on adoption fees and donations to continue saving lives. Adoption fees include spay/neuter, current on age-appropriate vaccinations, fecal, deworming, flea/tick and heartworm preventative, heartworm tested if old enough (and treated if positive), and microchipped.

Please review the section on our website (www.heartlandgsrescue.org) 'Is a HUGS Dog Right for You?' for additional information. Bear is a very handsome pup who loves his people. He would be an excellent hiking, walking, anything partner. He has plenty of energy and is always ready to be your trusty sidekick! He does very well meeting new people and other dogs. Bear does ok with cats, although he’s tempted to chase them if allowed. He loves to play fetch, and he LOVES to have playdates with dogs his size. However, he gets pretty amped up around other dogs (and wants to play non-stop!), so it would take a very playful/tolerant dog that can hold their own and set boundaries to live 24/7 with him, as well as pet parents who are able to reinforce that. Because of that, Bear would be IDEAL as an only dog. Bear loves to be with his people. He is kennel trained, is a good car rider, learns quickly, and he’s a gorgeous, fluffy, sweet boy!Like any of our dogs, this sweet, handsome boy would make a great addition to an active home that will provide the love, structure, good leadership, activity and mental stimulation that this breed needs.  Because of that, Bear's ideal owner will have prior GSD or other herding breed experience.  Even if you exercise and play with your dog daily in your fenced yard, please remember  that you MUST still take your dog out on daily walks and outings, in order to provide sufficient stimulation, ward off boredom, and work on leash skills, and manners.   Bear's adoption fee is $425, all of which goes back into offsetting our high-cost vetting expenses and rescuing more dogs.  We are a 100% volunteer-run rescue group and rely on adoption fees and donations to continue saving lives. Adoption fees include spay/neuter, current on age-appropriate vaccinations, fecal, deworming, flea/tick and heartworm preventative, heartworm tested if old enough (and treated if positive), and microchipped.

Please review the section on our website (www.heartlandgsrescue.org) 'Is a HUGS Dog Right for You?' for additional information. Daisy is a young German Shepherd who was roaming the streets of Omaha for many weeks until she was caught. She was very scared, extremely skinny, needed some medical care and TLC, and as as no owner ever came forward, we stepped up to offer her rescue. Daisy is fully recovered and is now ready for a home of her own!Daisy is a sweetheart who will melt your heart. Once she warms up to you, she loves to give you kisses! Her favorite toy is a rope toy and she will play tug of war with you. Daisy also loves to do zoomies in the yard. She loves walks and car rides. She's so loving and eager to please. She loves to play, and she also loves her cuddle time. Daisy is housetrained. She knows basic commands (sit, down, stay...). A quieter home without too many people coming and going would be best for this sweet girl, who is initiallly a little shy around strangers (she does very well after slow introductions). Daisy is lovely. She's an absolutely beautiful girl who will be the pride and joy of a very lucky German Shepherd lover!Daisy's adoption fee is $350, all of which goes back into offseting our high-cost vetting expenses and rescuing more dogs.  We are a 100% volunteer-run rescue group and rely on adoption fees and donations to continue saving lives. Adoption fees include spay/neuter, current on age-appropriate vaccinations, fecal, deworming, flea/tick and heartworm preventative, heartworm tested if old enough (and treated if positive), and microchipped.
