Bay Area German Shepherd Rescue

German Shepherd Rescue

Rambo is a beautiful German Shepherd who recently joined us.  He has the biggest head you'll ever have seen. He's strong willed and will need an experienced owner.  Did we mention that he is a stunning boy? 

Else has been with us for a few weeks.  She's such a lovely girl, bonds with her owner super fast and everyone in our team who gets to know her just falls in love.  She is nice with other dogs, but not with cats.

She is plug and play ready.  She is turn-key.

She would like nothing more than to go for walks, go with her family on outings, hang out on a sunny day or snuggle on the couch.  She's also house trained, she's mellow in the house, she sleeps in her crate at night, and she's got a super temperament.  

She is very well mannered and she has basic obedience under her collar. Could you be the perfect home for Else?



Our boy Juno joined the exciting group of success stories we like to tell around here at BAGSR. Here's how it happened: Juno's family researched breeds and based on their lifestyle, chose a German Shepherd (yeah!). From there, we were contacted and the appropriate paperwork was done. All that needed to happen now was to find their special new pet. As we all know, dogs come in many different sizes and personalities, so finding the right love match is critical to the success of a dog finding their forever family. Well, a couple of months later and the deal was sealed! Juno now lives on the Peninsula and he completes his new family like only a GSD can. A big huge thank you to Juno's new family for choosing to rescue this sweet, sweet guy. Don't they all look happy?

It's really important for us to get the word out there about our rescue efforts and our wonderful dogs. Recently, TJ and his story of perseverance were featured in an article published in the San Francisco Chronicle. We are so proud of this organization and especially of TJ, so please go check out the article and be inspired by this wonderful, happy, beautiful GSD and his story.


We have 8 puppies in the program at the moment!
