What about your local animal shelter(s) ?Thanks Jax08 I haven't looked at all of those but again GSD Rescue of New England does not adopt out to families with children under age 7. I think I am looking at private rescues or folks advertising on Craigslist...as GSD rescues do not seem to adopt out to folks with small children. Again I understand their conditions...
And thank you fello MA resident MrsMiaW!
We get a LOT of great purebred GSD's and mixed GSD breeds that are wonderful family pets :wub: !
Most shelters have no restrictions on the ages of children in the household unless they are aware of some "small child" issue with the dog.
I would be VERY careful on Craigs List & eBay - lots of puppymill dogs there !
