Gabrielle - A GSGSR Foster Dog


Gabrielle is the type of at risk dog that needs the help and support of Garden State German Shepherd Rescue. For a brief time, Gabrielle was used as a breeding dog, then was discarded and lived much of her life as a stray, wandering the streets of Elizabeth. At the age of 7 and with a shy disposition, Gabrielle is not the type of dog that will catch anyone's attention in a shelter. Today, Gabrielle is living in a foster home with GSGSR and learning the joys of a comfortable dog bed and human friendship. Check out her Gabrielle's full story and pictures .

About Garden State German Shepherd Rescue

Welcome to the Garden State German Shepherd Rescue web site. We are a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to rescuing and rehoming German Shepherd Dogs. We are a full service rescue and referral organization serving New Jersey and surrounding areas.

GSGSR foster dogs are rescued from shelters and pounds in New Jersey where most were facing euthanasia. Once in our program our dogs receive all necessary medical attention, which can range from updating vaccinations, spay/neutering, to more intensive surgical care if necessary. We also provide an owner referral service, where GSGSR works with the current owner to provide a new and loving home for their German Shepherd.
