Featured Dog


Meet "Mulligan"!  Please say hello to this big, handsome fellow, new to Northwest German Shepherd Rescue! Mulligan is about 3 years old, knows some basic obedience training, is potty trained, well cared for and just simply gorgeous! He loves to play, has plenty of healthy energy and his favorite game is fetch.  An active family or person who regularly hikes or jogs would be perfect for this stunning boy.  A fabulous characteristic about Mulligan is that he is cat-friendly! One tiny flaw (did we say TINY?) about him is that he does display the natural, protective instinct that so many German Shepherds do. Because of this we believe Mulligan would be best-suited as the only dog in the household with an experienced German Shepherd owner and probably no children younger than the age of 13 years in the home.  

If you are interested in meeting Mulligan and adding him to your family, please visit our Adoption Process page for more information! 


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
