- [AVAILABLE DOGS]
"For if we don't take care of our own, we shouldn't be doing this at all."
The ISSDC believes all dogs deserve a rewarding and loving home, but our rehome/rescue efforts must be specifically devoted to helping proven Shiloh Shepherds in need. We rely on our network of breeders, members and volunteers to help rescue, foster, and rehome Shiloh Shepherds whenever a situation arises. From time to time we may have Shiloh Shepherds listed on our site available for adoption from rescue situations, so please do check back regularly.
There are several rescue organizations devoted to helping Shiloh Shepherds, coated German Shepherds and other "Shiloh type" dogs, that are doing good work. The ISSDC is appreciative of such organizations but is not affiliated with them, as again, we must focus our efforts on what we believe to be pedigreed Shiloh Shepherds. There can be striking similarities between Shilohs and certain long-haired German Shepherd dogs. Therefore the ISSDC does not warrant that any particular dog from a rescue organization is a true Shiloh Shepherd unless there is parental proof, common knowledge, or some sort of paperwork to support this claim. If you choose to bring one of these rescue dogs into your home without proof of pedigree, you should realize they may or may not be Shiloh Shepherds even if they have been represented as such.
"We need to step up, all of us, and take part in the Shiloh Rehome Program."
THANK YOU! The ISSDC Rescue/Rehome Program is an ISSDC website feature for the benefit our of breeders and Shiloh Shepherd owners. The ISSDC cannot be held responsible for the outcome of an adoption facilitated through this website. It is the responsibility of the care-taker of an adoptable dog, as well as the adopter, to present their information as honestly as possible.
