We are looking for a German Shepherd to adopt in Maryland. Does anyone know of any quality breeders or rescues we can adopt from?

Im also here in MD and just rescued a GSD from a high kill shelter in Columbus GA they have two more in there right now. Might even be 3 not sure if the other was PTS or adopted yet. It is $75 to rescue from there, I had PAWS the rescue next door pull for me. Been stressful but I am certain it will be worth it. If you have facebook look up Happy Homes. They have photos of them all there with comments from people who have been there to meet them.

Here are some photos, they can be put to sleep at any time. Transport IS available through a network of many people.

His comments are super handsome and not too hyper


Female puppy comments are super friendly sticks nose through to get attention


Absolutely sweetheart and no reservations about new people. He began trying to play with me as soon as he got into the photo area. He also was very curious about the dogs in the kennels as we were walking by and his body language didn't suggest that he has any aggression issues towards other dogs.

Look up animal shelters, purebred rescues, CL and eBay Classifieds. Be sure to meet the dog first and get a feel for the animal before you adopt it. You want to be sure you'll be a good match. Speaking from experience, I would say you should adopt an already trained and housebroken young dog. You know what's it going to be and that will make living together with it a lot easier. A puppy, while cute, can be a lot of demanding work if you don't have the time or patience to mold it into a well-behaved good canine citizen. Good luck and I hope you find your dog!

Have you considered fostering? I am MD and volunteer with Virginia German Shepherd Rescue. There are a lot of dogs waiting for fosters. VGSR does adopt to Maryland. As already stated, you should also check out All Shepherd Rescue and Mid-Atlantic German Shepherd Rescue. Rescues ALWAYS need help and with multiple GSD rescues, you definitely have a lot of choices.
