unforeseen circumstances force German Shepherd owners to seek a new home for their dog(s).
This page serves to link such individuals with potential new owners--and to help prevent
the tragedy of owners surrendering their pets to a shelter.

"Pixel" is a 9-yr old, 65-lb
neutered male GSD who is spirited, goofy, and loving. He is healthy, strong and a fast
runner. He's friendly with strangers, good with other dogs, but not good
Pixel's owners raised him from a
pup, but now have an infant daughter who Pixel has never quite adjusted
to. Further, they are moving to Budapest, Hungary, the first week of
May, and have decided to rehome Pixel rather than take him with them.
Pixel's owner Steven has created a
Facebook page for Pixel, where you can learn more than you'd ever need
to know about him. See
Pixel is located in San Rafael.

is an approx 1-yo neutered male GSD mix with a gentle, sweet
temperament. He is the sweetest, most affectionate dog I have ever
come across. He waits with his tail wagging by my bed in the morning
and then lays his head on me as soon as I wake up--but not a second
before. He truly is a cuddle junkie.
Brunswick is still shy with strangers. But if people approach him
very slowly and give him space, he warms up pretty quick.
Brunswick is very good with small dogs but fearful of large dogs and
needs a slow introduction.
Brunswick loves to play fetch more than anything else in the world.
I throw the ball far down the road with a plastic throw extender and
have him bring it back to me about 20 times every morning. That
makes him sprint for about 10 minutes every morning and that seems
to be enough daily exercise for him. Alternatively, I will walk or
run two miles with him.
Brunswick is a high energy dog so he will need to be exercised every
day. But because he likes to plays fetch so much, this need can be
I adopted Brunswick from the San Bernardino County Shelter in
He was the only dog that was not barking and to this day he barks
Unfortunately, Brunswick suffers from separation anxiety and has
scratched holes in doors and window blinds in his attempts to follow
me when I leave for work. Additionally, he has eliminated in the
house several times a week--but only when I am not home.
Brunswick’s separation anxiety can be addressed through behavior
modification; I can provide information on exactly what steps you
need to take. He is responsive to leash training and quickly learns
commands. The only reasons I have not been able to help Brunswick
overcome his behavioral issues myself is that I do not have a yard
nor the extra time to train him as I am working two jobs.
Brunswick’s issues his new home must have one at least of three
1. A large yard
where he can be confined when no person is at home. The yard must
be very secure with a very high fence to ensure that he cannot
escape--at least until his separation anxiety diminishes with
2. A person who is always present - he'd be an amazing companion
for someone who is homebound.
3. A lot of open land and other dogs.
Brunswick is an
absolutely wonderful dog and it breaks my heart to give him up. But
I know there is a home out there that would better meet all of his
needs. And his happiness is my happiness, so with a sad heart I am
searching for that perfect home for him.
I am willing to drive Brunswick a long distance for the perfect
home. (I live in Crestline, CA, above San Bernardino.) Brunswick
will come with his crate, leash, toys etc if they were wanted. But I
also want to charge a $75 adoption fee to be sure his new owner is
invested in him. The check can be made out to the San Bernardino
