German Shepherd and Belgian Malinois Rescue

Serving Montana, Washington, Idaho and Wyoming

Our goal is to match the right dog with the right family. We are often able to help coordinate logistics if you are interested in a dog that is not in your immediate area.

Mission Statement: To find caring, loving, permanent homes for surrendered, abandoned or neglected dogs and puppies. Montana German Shepherd Rescue hopes to ease the problem of the population overflow occuring in many of our shelters today.

We educate the individual on the importance of sterilizing the pet and providing superior care. We are composed of a network of foster families and are in need of finding more foster care providers with the time and commitment to provide care for these animals in transition.

We also are in need of people to provide transportation for these animals. We are an ALL-VOLUNTEER rescue. ANY DONATIONS are greatly appreciated and will help a GSD find it's forever home or feed a friend in need.

Make Your Donations Today through GoFundMe. It's completely secure and you will help dogs in need at our facilities.

We need things such as dog beds, x-large, quality dog food, leashes, stainless steel bowls, rugs for crates, and of course donations of money towards vet bills for spay/neuters, shots, etc.


Ruger is coming back only being gone for only a week!! Poor guy!! The adopter's priorities changed. PLEASE PEOPLE FOR THE DOG'S SAKE, THINK BEFORE YOU ADOPT OR PUT IN AN APPLICATION!!!  Ruger is around 3 yrs old, and about 10 pounds overweight... From the adopter's words..Ruger turns out to be an exceptional dog. A one man dog. He has bonded to me like superglue, very dependent on me. He can't stand to have me out of his sight for a minute. He is insecure but who can blame him after what he's been through. I went to the neighbors Sunday and he was very good around everyone. I did not have him on a leash. He is very protective though. If some one walked up unexpected he would growl and bark and I would have him set down and relax. I went to town today. I made a tie down in the middle of my tool box and tied him so he could only put his nose to the outside of the truck so he couldn't try and jump out. I put an old carpet in the back so he could have some comfort. He is way to hairy and way to big to ride up front. I can't believe how big he is, he's got to weigh close to 100 lbs. I've spent 3 days brushing him and it just keeps coming off. I will be giving him a bath soon. While I was in Home Depot he broke the rope and got out of the back. I was at the check out and I looked up and there he was being held by one of the people that worked there. When he saw me he was just happy. The people said he was a real gentleman and people came up to him and petted him. I put him back and triple tied him. He really is a good dog!! He needs consistency and strong love. He is very protective of me and what is around us. One of the women that found him came up to the truck while I was putting him back in the truck and he growled at her. He does have a food issue. But from what I've read it is on the low end of the scale and could be trained out of it. I sat down with him this morning and made him sit down and I fed him out of his bowl with my hand and he took it and ate it as I gave it to him. I think his owners in the past have been afraid of him and let him be the alpha. He does want to please and be lead, he just needs to be taught. I'm writing you with as much detail as I can because I've come to the conclusion I can not keep him. He truly is the perfect German Shepherd, bud and best friend. I've just realized I am not ready to have a dog. My personal life is to long to go into, and I feel like I am abandoning him and you by coming to this conclusion but I just can't deal with him right now. He really is a sweet dog and will make a perfect ranch dog. He needs the open spaces like my place. He has no desire to run off at all!! He stays by the cabin all the time. I can't say enough what a wonder dog he is and hope you can find him a home like mine. I truly hope you understand and forgive me. I truly am very sad over this!!! I can make him sit and stay and walk away about 50 ' then stand there then call him and he comes running for a treat. He really is an excellent dog!! He does need someone that will give him a chance to be not so dependent. » read more

Duke was stolen by  Pam Zachritz of the Chicago area. Pam has a prior arrest for STEALING another dog, please crosspost wide and far, to stop this from happening again. She did adopt Murh the Malinois, came out here to Montana for a vacation at my home, and pick Murph up, but took it upon herself to take Duke also, knowing that he was being adopted the day after she took him...please help us locate and return Duke. She also stole other MTGSD property, including original dog files for the dogs and for a dog she doesn't have, a wire crate and other MTGSD property... The Sheriff is working on the case also. Duke would make someone a great Personal Protection Dog. with the correct training. Duke is a 2 yr old AKC Registered male. He needs an experienced adopter and continued obedience training. He is a dominant dog and needs socialization. Great in the house, and loves to go for rides in the car. He is VERY protective so no small kids or cats. » read more
