Featured Dog:  meet Jackie!

Hi there! My name is Jackie (sometimes called Jack Jack, sometimes Jax, sometimes Baby Girl!). I came to Seattle from Las Vegas in search of a better life. Unfortunately shelters there don't care much for medical dogs, and won't do much to help. I have a teeny issue with food, but I'm gaining weight and you should see my gorgeous coat! Funny thing is, I'm a tiny girl (humble brag) and I only weigh 48 pounds so really, I don't even eat that much 

play with you
go for long walks on the beach
cuddle more
still cuddling
mani/pedis (I love getting my nails done!)
house trained
crate trained


All I need to do is sit in a vertical "highchair", also called a Baliey Chair, twice a day for 20 minutes after my meals. I like my chair so much that sometimes I even fall asleep in it. While small dogs kind of freak me out, with slow introduction I can be ok with large dogs as long as they aren't too bossy. If you are interested in fostering me, or giving me a permanent home, please apply at www.northwestgermanshepherd.org.

(p.s. I'd love to sit on the couch and binge watch Game of Thrones with you.)

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
