Do you have a certain rescue you're looking into? If you are looking for a group to adopt a puppy from, giving your general location can get you some good suggestions for rescues in your area that may have German Shepherd puppies.

some use the words adopt when purchasing the pup. wonder if that is the case here. wouldn't think there are too many pups out there in rescue groups.

You'd be surprised! The local GSD rescue has a litter or two (sometimes purebred sometimes not) a year, it seems. Local animal control adopted out a 4 mo old purebred female pup today that was an owner surrender.

Yep. She was adorable. Played with her this morning and I'll get to see her Monday before she goes home, too.

Who knows why people dump puppies. They do it all the time.

Jax was dumped at 12 weeks because the "landlord wouldnt' let them have a dog". I suspect it was because she was a shark with a UTI.

We had a beautiful four month old purebred pup dumped at our city shelter a few months ago. A friend of mine in animal control snapped her up for her husband and the pup is now doing wonderfully in training for patrol work.

There are plenty of reasonable rescue groups. Not a necessary comment.
