Success Stories


We are successful every time we place a German Shepherd Dog in a permanent, loving home. Here are some of these dogs' stories.

Email us your happy story about your adopted dog and your family, we would love to hear from you on a regular basis - and so would our extended family. Please Note:  Your story will be reviewed by a Volunteer and posted within a few days.
