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. Click HERE for next Adoption Clinics.
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 email@example.com 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.

Adult Male Hound, ca. 70 lb, 2 1/2 yrs old:
Chuck is a fun guy! He loves attention and will run around the yard like a pony bucking and bouncing showing off a stick, ball or pulley toy. He loves playing with other pups and will wrestle on the ground with my dog or play chase. Due to his energy, he will definitely require a fenced yard. Tall and slender - he may be too big and active for small children.
He is fine crated.
Medical: neutered, current with vaccines, heartworm/lyme negative, microchipped, wormed, on flea/tick prevantative
Young Female Black Laborador Retriever Mix, ca. 30 lbs, 2.5 yr. old:
Babe was an abandoned pup and this tough beginning has made her very shy. While a sweetheart, she definitely is scared of men and young children. A home with only females would be the best placement for her. Once she warms up to you, she would be a loveable companion pup. She loves other dogs and enjoys frolicking with them in the yard. She has not been tested with cats. If you have the patience to show her love and assure her you won't abandon her, you could make a huge difference in her life.
Medical: neutered, current with vaccines, heartworm/lyme negative, on flea/tick prevantative
Adult Female Husky Mix, ca. 44 pounds, approximately 6 yrs old:
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 female dogs. Therefore, she should be the only female dog in the household. She has not been tested with cats. Due to her love of running, a fence is a must.
Medical: Sweetie is current with vaccines, heartworm/Lyme negative and spayed.
Adult Male German Shepherd Mix, ca. 60 pounds, approximately 5-6 yrs old:
For experienced handlers only. Bandit is a gorgeous, healthy, and loyal German Shepherd mix pup who has sadly been abused in his younger years. He is only available for adopting into a home with someone with experience and patience working with such a pup. He is not a family dog and would be best in a home without other animals or children. He would need a physical fence - please do not apply if you do not have a fence.
Medical: Bandit is current with vaccines, heartworm/Lyme negative and neutered.
Male German Shepherd Mix Puppy, ca. 30 pounds (medium size) , approximately 8 months old:
Available Mid November
Meet Rocky. He is just an adorable, friendly puppy who loves humans and other dogs of all size. He was owner surrendered when owners realized that he was more active than their sedentary life demanded. He is working on his housebreaking and is not destructive or aggressive. He does not like a crate, preferring to sleep near his humans. We would love to see him adopted by an active family or individual willing to play, go on walks, and be his lifelong buddy. We think he would be fine for older children. He has not been tested with cats. The perfect home for him would be one where he could have a canine companion to pal around with.
Medical: Rocky is current with vaccines, heartworm/Lyme negative and neutered.
Male American Short-Haired Kitten, approximately 8 - 12 months
This is one special little dude. He was simply abandoned by his previous owner and tossed out into the cold. He was brought to us to help him find a warm, loving home. Despite his rocky start, he is a purrrfect little love bug. He is super affectionate and deserves that home that will never abandon him again. Application fee is $100-125.
Medical: Leuk Neg, HIV Neg, neutered.
