To be considered as a guardian of these magnificant animals there are certain requirements that must be met.
ALL requests to adopt MUST be made via our adoption application form.
Your property must be fully fenced with fence height of 1.8 metres (consideration will be given to slightly lower heights if placement is for a senior, or a less active dog).
We will not adopt to anyone who will not allow the GSD to have access to the home while they are home or expect it to sleep outside at night.
If you own a cat you must be realistic in your expectations of an early peaceful relationship. German Shepherds are high drive animals and it will take work for a cat and dog to live together harmoniously. If you have more than 2 house cats please do not even consider a German Shepherd, we feel it will cause too much stress for all concerned.
Dog’s to order – while our adoption application does offer you colour and coat choice we do not ‘rescue to order’ so requests for large bone, dark masked, standard coat with guarantee on hip dysplasia and strong ear set are best directed to a breeder. Please consider the financial outgoings of owning a large breed dog.
Large breed dogs do create a financial outlay of around $1,500 per annum to feed, register, and vaccinate, without any other additional vet costs due to illness or accident. Many dogs are relinquished by their owners for this very reason. Please be sure you are in a financial position to be able to maintain a German Shepherd Dog.
