Private Party Listings / Owner Referrals


Part of our mission is to assist owners in finding new homes for their dogs when they can no longer take care of them.

GSRNC knows there are people who must give up their dogs and prefer not to surrender them to a shelter. We provide this page as a community courtesy and an alternative to shelter drop offs so that private adoptions (adoptions without GSRNC help) can occur. GSRNC has not seen, evaluated, observed, fostered, or trained any of the dogs listed on this page – no representations are made by GSRNC as to the temperament, health, overall physical and mental condition, personality, level of training, or suitability for adoption of any dog listed here. If you are interested in a dog on this page, you should contact the owner of that dog directly, as GSRNC does not monitor or participate in any way with the communications concerning any dog listed on this page.

At the side of the page we offer a few guidelines for owners and prospective adopters to help facilitate a successful adoption. See also GSRNC's guidelines for Placing Your German Shepherd Dog and additional information on our Help With Your Dog page.

When you inquire about a dog, the following questions might be helpful:

  1. Why are you giving up your dog?
  2. Has the dog ever bitten, nipped or 'gone after' anyone?
  3. Does it have any health problems? Who is your vet? May I contact him/her?
  4. Where did you get the dog? Does it have papers?
  5. Does your dog have any training? Is it housebroken? crate trained?
  6. Is the dog left alone for long periods? What does it do? Bark? Dig? Chew? Is it an inside or outside dog? Where does it sleep?
  7. How does the dog behave with adults, children? Other dogs? Cats?
  8. Is your dog mellow? calm? energetic? protective? affectionate?
