Heartland German Shepherd Rescue
We are a small, local, breed-specific non-profit rescue. We rescue abused/abandoned/neglected German Shepherd dogs, rehabilitate them and place them in permanent homes. We do not have a facility: dogs are housed in approved foster homes until they find their permanent home.

Good in Home With
Pert is an adorable and affectionate girl and loves playing with other dogs. Pert is very gentle, and rather shy, so it may take a bit longer to warm up to you. One of her favorite activities is running outside with the other dogs where she can also entertain herself for hours watching the squirrel and birds. Pert and her litter mate were born outside to a Cattle Dog mom; she and her brother Reese were trapped and brought into rescue. Her first weeks in rescue she was understandably shy around people. However, as she has grown, she really enjoys sleeping on her foster mom's lap and having a good cuddle. Pert is potty trained and crate trained. She keeps all of her toys and beds inside an exercise pen. Princess Pert warms up best to people who are calm, patient, and relatively quiet - at first. She loves to play and follow her person everywhere! Pert will dress up in a bandana and an outfit because she is a pretty, pretty Princess. She will do best in a home with another dog as she learns quickly what other dogs do. Pert's adoption fee is $375, all of which goes back into offsetting our high-cost vetting expenses and rescuing more dogs. We are a 100% volunteer-run rescue group and rely on adoption fees and donations to continue saving lives. Adoption fees include spay/neuter, current on age-appropriate vaccinations, fecal, deworming, flea/tick and heartworm preventative, heartworm tested if old enough (and treated if positive), and microchipped. Please visit http://heartlandgsrescue.rescuegroups.org/info/adoption for more information about our adoption process and requirements, and to apply.
Application process includes 3 unrelated personal references, a vet check, and a home visit. Applicants are matched up to a dog that matches their living situation and skill level. Adoption contract is signed after successful meet and greet. Adoption fees range from $250-450 depending on the dog's age.
