Welcome to Freedom German Shepherd Rescue! We are a nonprofit 501(c)(3) rescue comprised solely of unpaid volunteers that share the common goal of saving neglected, abused, and abandoned German Shepherds and German Shepherd mixes from shelters, owners who can no longer keep them and partner rescues. Currently, we can only adopt to residents of North Carolina and South Carolina at this time.

Our new store is now open in time for the Holidays

Help our dogs and get your gifts.

We are now once again accepting adoption and foster applications. Please be patient as it may take longer to get home visits scheduled due to the COVID 19 outbreak.

Featured Dog - Annie

Hello, my name is Annie. I am an approximately 8-year-old, 85-pound, beautiful girl. I'm low maintenance and love to hang out relaxing in the house and in my space (including my open-door crate). I am crate and house trained. I am getting better with commands and understand "come here" and "sit" although don't get me distracted when this is happening or I may lose focus. I also love to watch TV; it is so fascinating to me.
The ideal house for me would be one with no children or at least dog savvy children. I do not like my mouth being touched but as long as my people are gentle with me, I am alright. I currently have an 11-year-old foster human (sister) and I do great with her. My human sister pets me and I let her do pretty much anything and I am good with it but she knows when I am wanting to be more on my own and given some space. I have gotten a lot better at sharing my toys with humans now that I am more comfortable. Early on I didn’t want anyone to take them from me because I was worried, I'd never get them back.
I am a sweetheart once I get comfortable around my surroundings. My foster mom is home with me most of the day now; she leaves the crate door open so I can have freedom, but I still love sleeping in my crate most of the day. I mostly come out to eat, drink, or when I have to go potty. I am still getting used to the stairs, they are a bit scary, but I just need a little encouragement to go up & down.
I haven't been around other animals very much but when I see other dogs, I am simply curious so having doggie siblings is a possibility.
My foster family always tells me I’m such a good girl and anyone would be lucky to have me as their furever dog.
I am being fostered near Fayetteville.
If you are interested in adopting Annie, reach out to your adoption coordinator. If you do not yet have an adoption coordinator, please complete an adoption application.
