Available Dogs

If one of our available orphans tugs at your heartstrings, please fill out our Adoption Application under the “Applications” tab and you will be contacted within 48 hours.  You must be approved to adopt before you can meet our dogs.  All applications require a home visit in order to be approved.

Adoption fees vary with each dog and range from $125-$400, with $350 being the price for most. Adoptions fees are used not only to rescue and place the dog you are personally adopting, but to aid in the future rescue and rehabilitation of other deserving dogs. Adoption fees are necessary; without fees, our rescue efforts would quickly come to an end.

Saber's Story

3 year old Saber recently came to us from our local shelter.   Saber has EPI, a condition Shepherds can get that affects the enzymes in the pancreas.  It is controlled with enzymes in his meals which he will need for his entire life.

Saber is a happy boy with lots of love to give.  He is currently in a foster home where he is getting to heal and have his body rebalance from his condition being untreated.
Saber is good with other dogs and, so far, friendly to humans he meets.  We will be getting to know him better and update his bio as we learn about him from his foster.
You don’t want to miss out on meeting this handsome boy.

Karly's Story

Karly is an absolute stunner.  At only a year old, this big girl still has some growing to do.  She’s got beautiful painted paws and an absolutely gorgeous,  huggable, soft coat.

She has panosteitis which means inflammation of the long bones, aka growing pains.    Simple anti inflammatories are given as needed when she starts to limp a bit.  She will grow out of it as she reaches her body’s peak growth.

She is sweet to everyone she’s met so far, but no small children for this girl as she likes to use her mouth to show her love and still does some puppy jumping.   She prefers to be with her humans and give lots of love and affection.   She’s still a curious pup and likes to explore and check things out and will sometimes get into puppy trouble if allowed.  She likes to play with toys like ropes and stuffed animals and is learning to fetch them and bring them back.

We are working on getting to know her Doggy relationships better to see what kinds of potential pack mates she will accept.  So far she seems a bit of a particular girl and is hit or miss when she meets a new dog.

Don’t miss out on this sweet beauty.  Apply today to start the process to meet and adopt Karly.

Geliebte (Gilly)

Geliebte (Gilly)'s Story

Geliebte, or Gilly (or G) as we affectionately call her, had a mammary carcinoma and hormone based cysts when our local shelter reached out for help.  All have been removed and she requires no further treatment at this time except love and good care.    She gets healthier every day and is putting on weight and getting the most beautiful coat again.  She needs a home and family of her own. Are you her hospice foster or adopter?
There is honestly no definitive time before the cancer could return.  It could be several months or even years with the right care possibly.    That part is mostly up to Mother Nature but there are holistic/homeopathic options out there that can help with long term care and health and there are things that can be done medically as well when that time comes and it does return.
What we CAN tell you is that she is a happy, loving girl who adores her furry foster siblings and enjoys being a part of a pack.  She is wonderful with humans she meets and a calm, gentle girl by nature.   Don’t let her age or what she went through fool you.  This girls got both sugar and spice according to her foster mama.  She likes to do a bit of roughhousing with her pack mate even.  She’s a tad picky about her food, but hey, she deserves a bit of pampering.   She even enjoys playing ball and seems to like water and loves a good car ride.   She has a youthful exuberance that makes her a joy to be around.
She’s got so much spunk and life left in her and we at VSR want to see her live it out in total comfort and happiness, going on adventures and having lots of treats.  Think you’re up for lots of love and giggles and walks and the most amazing new best buddy?   When you meet G, you will realize why she means so much to us and why we just had to change her story to a Yappily Ever After.

Welcome handsome Milo to the VSR family.   Milo’s dad was injured during a break in and left him with a friend for care and never returned.   Milo lived with dogs from chiweenie size to a Cane Corso.  He is approximately 2-3.   We do know he chases children if they run, so no small children at this time.   He seems to have no reaction to most adults aside from the usual shepherd guardedness the first few minutes.    He’s a young energetic boy who loves to play.
