In most cases, adopting an adult dog is much wiser than buying a puppy. This is all the more true if you wish to have a German Shepherd Dog, because GSD puppies are everything but easy. German Shepherd puppies are SUCH a handful, and so demanding in terms of your time commitment, that the majority of GSD puppy parents come here to complain and request "HELP!". We've seen it all.
Adult rescue dogs generally are very easy to integrate, and we are there to help. So please find here our Directory of German Shepherd Rescues, for now with focus on GSD Rescue Centers USA, GSD Rescue Centres UK, GSD Rescue Centers Canada, and GSD Rescue Centers New Zealand:
Jonathan: "Thank you for your period advice. It is excellent! My GSD puppy is now 8 months and we read your advice regularly."

Penny: "Thanks for making your great articles available to all of us. it's nice to know that a recommended product is actually available in my country."

If you are ever unhappy with anything we write, do or don't do, we want to be the first to know, thanks.
