Private Party Listings / Owner Referrals

 

Part of our mission is to assist owners in finding new homes for their dogs when they can no longer take care of them.

This page is offered as a service to those who must give up their dogs and prefer not to surrender them to a shelter. Since we have not seen or evaluated these dogs, we cannot make any representation or take responsibility for any dog's temperament or health. Prospective adopters should contact the owner of a dog directly.

At the side of the page we offer a few guidelines for owners and prospective adopters to help facilitate a successful adoption. See also GSRNC's guidelines for Placing Your German Shepherd Dog and additional information on our Help With Your Dog page.

When you inquire about a dog, the following questions might be helpful:

  1. Why are you giving up your dog?
  2. Has the dog ever bitten, nipped or 'gone after' anyone?
  3. Does it have any health problems? Who is your vet? May I contact him/her?
  4. Where did you get the dog? Does it have papers?
  5. Does your dog have any training? Is it housebroken? crate trained?
  6. Is the dog left alone for long periods? What does it do? Bark? Dig? Chew? Is it an inside or outside dog? Where does it sleep?
  7. How does the dog behave with adults, children? Other dogs? Cats?
  8. Is your dog mellow? calm? energetic? protective? affectionate?
