Journey has a sweet soul. A rare offering in rescue, Journey has it all! He’s got personality, follows guidance, is sweet and playful. Journey is house trained and mannerly. He is crate trained and loves to be with his people. A shy boy, he warms up quickly to new people and would do well in a home with respectful children. He loves his walks, car rides and is learning the joys of toys!

Journey is currently fostered with other dogs and a dog-savvy cat and has shown himself to be mannerly with dogs of all sizes. This adorable, sweet dog just wants to be loved and to have a family to call his own. This dog is an incredible opportunity. He’s well loved by his foster family and all of us here at True North GSD. We’re looking for the right home and the right people that Journey himself will fall in love with! This could be you!



Nia is a young, beautiful, very distinctive female. She is super smart and loves to chase balls and play outside especially with other dogs! She also loves riding in the car. We found Nia being sold on a social media site and we rescued her. She really enjoys love and affection and playing with other dogs. We worked with another local rescue to place her into a wonderful permanent home where she is thriving and has a best friend.

Save a Life


How long does it take to get a dog?

Once your application is received and approved, we like to have the home visit completed within two weeks. This is a very important part of the process and we would like to have everyone who will be living with the dog present.

Where do you get your dogs?

Many of the dogs come from shelters but sometimes they are surrendered by owners for various reasons. All of our rescue dogs are temperamentally assessed based on our placement criteria. Only dogs that meet this criteria are accepted into True North GSD Rescue.

Additionally, they will be micro chipped, have the required vaccinations and will be spay/neutered prior to being permanently placed. We will also ensure each pup is noted for any physical challenges. All will be completed prior to placing the dogs into their permanent homes to ensure the best fit for you and our rescue dogs.

If I already have a dog(s), can I adopt?

Part of the home visit will be an opportunity to meet household and pet members. If you already have a dog, once you have been approved to adopt and identified a potential dog to adopt, we would require a meet and greet with the dog(s) in your home to ensure they will make good companions.
