Some of our wonderful pets looking for forever homes.
In light of our current situation Good Shepherd K9 Rescue is postponing our in person adoption clinics until further notice.
However we do still have some awesome dogs for adoption and would love to help you find your perfect companion. If there is a dog on our site that interests you the first step is to put in an application here and let us know you are interested in a certain dog on your application.
You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on a particular dog you are interested in.
As always our dogs are placed not on a first come first serve basis, but based on who is the best fit for the dog. It may take some time to go through all of the applications, so we appreciate your patience. A reminder that we do conduct home visits and therefore applicants must live within 50 mile radius of Albany, NY.
Thank you for helping us make these wonderful animals wag their tails in joy.

Knuckles was rescued from a kill shelter in Georgia - when she got off the transport, she immediately began to lick and cuddle with the rescue volunteers. She knew that she was safe. This is one smart pup - she is a healthy, active pup who would be great companion for someone doing agility, running, hiking - you name it. She would need a physical fence in yard as she is curious and loves to run. She is housetrained and crate trained. She is currently housed with other pups but will need to do a meet and greet with any new pets to see about compatibility. She does better with MALE dogs - NO CATS (sorry - we love our feline friends too) If you are looking for that perfect not too big pup who is young enough to be tons of fun, but old enough not to drive you up the wall with puppy antics - then Knuckles is worth a meeting. Click on applications above and a rescue volunteer will contact you.
Medical: Knuckles is current with vaccines, heartworm/Lyme negative and spayed. aph.
When Lulu came off the transit from Texas - she was shy and quiet - drinking in all of the new sights with her brown soulful eyes She has blossomed over the last two weeks into her confident, joyful self, knowing that she is no longer on the list to be euthanized. Ohh so affectionate with her fosters. We would love to see her go to a family with other dogs who she can wrestle and chase and a fence. We are not sure how she would do with cats or small children - a meet and greet is a must. She is housetrained and crate trained. Super smart and fast - can you say agility dog???? The perfect companion to go on a hike, go run with, or just cuddle watching a movie.
Medical: Lulu is current with vaccines, heartworm/Lyme negative and spayed.
Well - we are called Good Shepherd for a reason - this good boy is for all of you sherpherd lovers. Due to past abuse, he will be adopted to only experienced handlers. Bandit is a gorgeous, healthy, and loyal German Shepherd mix. He is not a family dog and would be best in a home without other animals or children. He has been working on trust issues with his foster and has come a long way to socializing with others. With his foster mom he loves to play ball and is so joyful, but when strangers come - he is on the alert and is unpredictable. He would need a physical fence - please do not apply if you do not have a fence. We would be happy to have a conversation with you about this deserving pup to see if you would be a good match. We know that there is a person out there who is patient and kind who will give this boy the home that he was denied earlier in life!
Medical: Bandit is current with vaccines, heartworm/Lyme negative and neutered.
One look into her soft chocolate brown eyes and you will melt for her. Despite her six years, Sweetie is best described as an exuberant puppy. She does not act, look or resemble a dog over 2 yrs old. Expect zoomies when she is first out of crate. She is crate trained. She is quite clever and has some agility and obedience training. Sweetie will want to be where you are ... or where the food is. Sweetie is a great dog but very jealous of other animals - She wants to be your constant companion. Due to her love of running, a fence is a must.
Medical: Sweetie is current with vaccines, heartworm/Lyme negative and spayed.
