Featured Dogs:


We are proud to announce the next six dogs to be listed with NWGSR! A beautiful black German Shepherd was picked up as a stray and taken to a shelter, where they immediately realized that she was very pregnant! NWGSR took responsibility for her and for her unborn puppies, and she was transferred to our care.

Mama (named Cricket) and her puppies are doing very well! The babies were born on March 11th, and spent their first eight weeks together with their mama, nursing, playing, and learning about the world. Beautiful Cricket is sweet and demure, and has been a very, very good mother.

The puppies are now in foster homes of their own, working hard on crate training and housebreaking, and are continuing to be socialized with lots of people and dogs. They are now available for adoption!

There are four males (Axel, Sherman, Gunnar and Bronson) and one female (Angelika). Beautiful mama Cricket is also in a foster home and is now up for adoption. She will be spayed before joining her new adoptive family. There are photos and profiles of each of these sweet dogs on our "Available Dogs" page.

Please check back for more photos and updates!

The puppies were also recently featured in the Mukilteo Beacon!

If you are interested in adopting Cricket or one of her puppies, please review the adoption process here and complete an application as soon as possible. There is a lot of interest in these beautiful dogs so please get your application on file quickly!


Northwest German Shepherd Rescue  is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization run solely on adoption fees and donations. The rescue serves German Shepherds in need. Our network of devoted foster families provides a safe haven to German Shepherds as they make their way to quality, loving homes of their own. All adoption fees are used to cover spay/neuter procedures, shots, worming, microchips, emergency boarding, food, medications, and other surgeries as needed for adoptable dogs.
Your donation will go directly to providing care for a German Shepherd in need. A donation of just $10 will cover one night of emergency boarding. $25 can provide food and supplies for one foster dog for two weeks. And there are many additional ways your generous donation can help: 
$15   - Pays for one microchip
$25   - A trip to the groomer to help a battered rescue dog show its best side to potential adopters
$100 - Vaccines to prevent rabies, distemper, and parvo for one dog
$200 - Nutritious dog food to feed 50 dogs for 2 weeks
$500 - Spay or neuter surgeries for four dogs
