Duke 4751

Meet Duke!
Duke is a sweet boy once he gets to know you. He is a very personable dog and bonds to those caring for him. He loves to be with his people but he also does well in a crate once he settles down within a couple minutes. Duke seems to match your activity level. If you want to take him out he is excited to jump in the car and go but if you just want to hang out he is happy doing that too. Please click the button above to read Dukes's full story.

Approved adopters, please contact his foster directly: emorehart@email.radford.edu


Friends and Supporters,

We have been monitoring this evolving situation and wanted to share with you, the steps we are taking. Our highest priority is the safety of our adopters and volunteers.

While VGSR has cancelled all rescue events until further notice, the community and shelters need support and we are still taking in GSDs. If you are not looking to adopt, we encourage you to consider fostering.

At this time we are taking applications and scheduling virtual home visits. Approved adopters will be able to coordinate meeting a dog, after an initial phone conversation with the foster and the foster determining that there is a possible match. Visits will be conducted outside in an area where social distancing can be implemented and only after both parties agree to meet and verify they are well and have not had known exposure. Precautions to be taken during the visit should be discussed prior to meeting.

Thank you, volunteers, adopters and supporters for your help and patience as we continue to work to save lives, help the communities in which we live and find great homes for our dogs.

Meet Mila!
Meet beautiful Mila, she sure had a RUFF start to her short life before VGSR stepping in to save her. She was living on the streets running scared and mistrusting as all the humans before had just let her down.

Mila loves playing ball and with her new kong. She is playing and running well with her foster brother. So many things are new to her!
